Today, we had the opportunity to take a look at the much-anticipated Aether Mod, led by kingbdogz, Shockah, KodaichiZero, Flan and _303.  It certainly lives up to its prestigious reputation,  adding a huge number of features to the game - so many that we almost don't have room to list them all here.

The crafting system has seen a lot of additional content, everything from new tools with special abillites (like doubling the number of blocks you mine with them) to more exotic crafting equipment, like the much-needed Incubator, for growing and training your own flying mounts; and an Enchanter, which can create and upgrade a wide variety of items; and entirely new items unique to the Aether, such as the dart shooter, which can fire a variety of special projectiles directly at a target.

The flora and fauna of the Aether is certainly uniquely its own, with flying pigs and colorful sheep roaming the landscape, poisonous plants, and the elusive Moas - flying bird-like creatures which drop very special eggs - and the massive Aerwhales, those gentle, drifting giants of the sky.  Also included are a large variety of custom blocks, only found in the Aether.  3 blocks which really stand out are cold (and blue) clouds, which can cushion (or launch) a player on contact; and quicksoil, essentially the inversion of soulsand.  Players walking on this will quickly gain momentum, reaching incredible speeds on a long stretch.

There is much, much more in Aether than what is listed here - enough features to keep anyone busy for a long time.  Watch for Aether Mod's release, coming soon!

I've been waiting for this one for a long time. Still waiting! Exploring will be really fun, as well as making zoos and such. Great choice for the spotlight!

You better hope it doesn't have integrated graphics, lol. Unless you want to upgrade it. That's what I did.

They edit the jump to a real physic. In 2:31 where he jumps off the yellow things it resets the movement speed(ms) like from 100ms to 1ms.

Just a note here!

P-BAT is not going to make anymore videos until the release of the mod!
It will have a promo video , featuring all of the stuff we find in the aether!
The release maybe coming this or the next week with the promo vid, of course!
I have also talked to Shockah for some ideas and he maybe put them!
I informed Notch of this awesome mod ! and he is following ! :D
Also a special thanks for Sacheverell for this small video upon the aether collab!

Go support!
Always nice and non-creeper :DD "!"
