I started this mod on a simple idea came to me being like that, I wanted to create a mod like the nether.So I started modding this mod : The Eternal Frost.This mod is a "dimension", so it adds the ability to teleport to another dimension I have called the Freezer, to teleport there, nothing more simple, just create "The flint and diamond" and create a portal to the nether normal but with ice obsidian ( Look at recipe ), and use the flint and diamond =)In the Freezer, you'll end up underground in a beautiful world made of stone freezer, ice, snow and water "half cold" that will make the damage. You will find of course frozen glowstone.
Theadditionsof the mod:
74 Blocks : Every block are different and some are totally awesome !
89 Items : I think a list will be too long =D
5 Complete tools : Arctite Tools, Snowbark Tools ,Crystal Tools, Frozen Cobble Stone Tools and Coldsteel Tools
1 special water : Frozen water ( You take damage on it ).
The snow blower texture is picked from the game Zelda : The Minish Cap and isn't my own. I love the game and wanted to make a wink to it.
Armors set :
Ice Oven Chilling recipes :( View the item/block at the left who become the item/block at the right )Frozen Furnace smelting recipes :( View the item/block at the left who become the item/block at the right )
Structures who generate in the Eternal Frost ( The best part in my opinion ) :
Eternal Frost Dungeon :Ice Castle :
Freezer : A simple biome but beautiful.Freezer Jungle : A jungle biome, because it is needed Frozen Plain : A biome for villages to spawn in, and for your construction to take place.Eternal Moutain : A moutain biome, as in every world a high biome.
Read that before play this mod ( IMPORTANT ) :
New Bar ? As you know, there is a new bar : The Hypothermia one.How it work ? Simply as the hunger one, but to replenish it STAND NEAR BLUE FIRE.
I don't find biome like in the screen !! You see the biome in the screen but you can't find it ? Just dig in to layer 178 ! I did it, generation to 256
Dungeon ? Dungeons are now found by a simple new block, the dungeon block. Break one for have a random dungeon between the 2. Why ? Cause of massive lags of the mod. And remember that DUNGEON BLOCK ARE FOUND IN VEINS LIKE CRYSTALS.Here is what the block look like :
What block, what tool? What block (Stone, ore, Freezer bridge brick/stair/fence, Deepfrozen ice etc. Just the stuff you use your Pick for) is succesfully mineable with what tool? I made it here. Black = Every Pickaxe Grey = at least Frozen cobble Purple = at least Arctite Turquoise = at least Crystal Freezer-only blocks: Frozen cobble Frozen stone Deepfrozen ice Ice oven/Deepfreezer Arctite ore Frozen brick things Frozen button Frostbite spider spawner and all spawners yet to come in the Eternal frost Bluestone ore Crystal ore Block of Crystal Bluestone lamp If you mine these block with other tool, it won't be succefully drop. ( But if you use Crystal tool on block who need at least frozen cobble pickaxe it still work ).

Wow. This is pretty awesome. Not as developed and unique as the Aether though (just being honest). Of course, over time it has the potential to surpass the Aether mod and become an awesome Minecraft expansion download.
The problem is that a lot of the Nether stuff is just taken and given a new ice theme, which isnt too innovative. It's nice, but not really cool or fun to just change the theme of the same mobs and blocks/items to a frost theme.
Try adding items with special powers and mobs with unique characteristics and abilities. How about a Yeti that you can tame so it will fight for you? It can shoot ice shards that cause slowed movement.
Well since it doesn't use forge I just ran out of item sprites. I could fix it by removing some mods to open slots up, however, judging by the amount of blocks alone in this mod that could be just about all my non-forge mods.
Just a suggestion for when they re-add ice being farmable with silk touch again, make the portal out of ice blocks. Kinda fits the theme I think. There's a couple things you could do without, like the frost wheat, unless that adds a potion effect such as fire resistance, or perhaps frost resistance.

Damn this is pretty in-depth. Wish it used forge sprites though since there are so many.
Also, I opened up the download and was taken aback by the sheer amount of base classes. Then I noticed that the majority of them were Forge itself. Is there any reason why this comes with Forge packaged inside it?
this is to make the installation easier, cause according to the modder poiuytrezay, the mod without the forge and modloader files requires installing the applications in a fixed order (Modloader->Puddlehund's dimension API->Forge->Eternal frost mod) else the mod would not work (NB might get the order wrong here)
Maybe have different layers in the generation, like have the top layer how it is now. The second layer would be a frozen plane full of ice/snow with only a small amount of pillars leading between the layers to create more of a frozen landscape, and have the last layer just be the caves/dungeons you already have? Also in addition to the snowstorms you plan to add, try making it so void fog in on and increased as you get lower to make it seem more coldish?
