On Dungeons...

The Aether II's Highlands Update is still heavily in development and currently does not feature Dungeons. We are expected to start work on implementation for the first Dungeon some time in the future, but no ETA can be given as of yet. This notice will be removed once the first Dungeon is implemented into the mod.

Announcing, the Highlands Update


We've been hard at work on our update to the Aether II mod, from a complete rewrite of the mod's code base to a massive overhaul of every concept and aspect of the mod. New textures, blocks, NPCs, structures, you name it. And we're not even warmed up yet.  We're back on track to create the best version of the Aether II yet, and we're opening the flood gates to players today.

What is the Aether II?

The Aether II is the sequel to the highly popular dimension mod "The Aether", set in a hostile paradise miles up in the clouds, the Aether is an entirely different world from what regular players are used to, filled with fantastic creatures and mysterious structures, the Aether is a world brimming with life and history. You'll have to relearn key ideas as the Aether challenges you with twisted materials, terrifying monsters and deep lore if you want to survive and prosper in this strange new land.

As the mod comes closer to a final release, Dungeons, Biomes, NPC settlements will pepper the landscape, offering new and exciting challenges and experiences unique to this mysterious world.


What's new?


The Aether II has its own unique portal! Create a frame of Quartz Blocks and light it with water to enter the Aether II's world!


The Aether II has seen a huge face-lift! New textures, mobs, blocks, and structures can be found in the hostile paradise that is the Aether.



We've overhauled World Generation! The new WIP terrain increases the variety and complexity of the terrain, adding caves, new biomes and more!




What's next?

We have a lot planned for Aether II. Highlands will launch very soon™ and will have these features and more!
