The Greek word Αιθήρ, Aether, means "pure, fresh air" or "clear sky", imagined in mythology to be the pure essence where the gods lived and which they breathed.

Aether II: Highlands is a mod by Gilded Games, as a re-continuation of the original Aether mod. Aether II adds a new dimension called the Aether, a dimension the opposite of The Nether. The Aether is made of floating islands, similar to The End. The Aether contains various new dungeons with powerful loot.

Entering the Aether

The portal to the Aether

The Aether can be entered by created a structure similar to the Nether Portal, but out of Quartz Blocks instead of Obsidian. The portal should be "lit" with a Water Bucket instead of a Flint and Steel.

When entering the Aether, a portal will be generated in the new dimension, again just like the Nether Portal, which can be entered and exited, just like the Nether Portal.

Exiting the Aether

As noted above, the Aether can be exited through the Aether Portal. However, there is also another way to exit- by jumping off the floating islands and into the clouds below. Instead of falling into a void like The End, the player will fall back into the Overworld (note this is one-way; moving up into/above the clouds from the Overworld will NOT result in entering the Aether). This does, however, cause significant fall damage, but this can be avoided with a Parachute such as the Cold Cloud Parachute.


Aether II Menu.png

The Aether II, per default, modifies the Minecraft menu. It can be restored the original menu by clicking the arrow buttons at the top-left of the screen.

Clicking "The Cloud Network" allows access to the Aether II's official servers (or "Clouds"). They may or not be online, depending on many various factors.


Backpack view
Accessories view

Aether II modifies the normal Minecraft inventory. A tab is added at the top, to switch between between "Backpack" and "Accessories" mode. The Backpack mode is the same as the usual inventory, while the Accessories mode allows access to special armor slots- 1 Pendant, 1 Companion, 1 Shield, 2 Rings, 1 pair of Gloves and 2 Miscellaneous slots.
