Now, from what I read on the Nether section for the MinecraftWiki, one block in the Nether is equal to 8 blocks in the Overworld. I, honestly think that, with the soon inclusion of the Aether, fast travel in the Nether would be practically unnecessary, as the Aether would have to allow fast-travel, too. Also, if some of the things in the Nether update posts were to be put in, the Nether would be mostly used to get new ores for more powerful items. Also, towns in SMP servers are normally so close, going even ten blocks in the Nether would be too far. I think fast-travel in the Nether should just be cut.

If you don't feel like reading "The Wall", hears the short version:
One block in the Nether equals eight blocks in the normal world. It shouldn't.

(PS: Thanks to those arguing with me for getting this to a hot topic! Your in-support is appreciated!)

You could have just said "Because of the new dimension we shouldn't have Nether fast travel".

I never really saw the point in the fast travel anyways.

Who says the new location (Don't you dare call it the Aether) is going to have fast travel?
The Sun rises in the North!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line...

I'm just saying, it will have to have some kind of reward for going to it. Otherwise, why would you? And why can't I call it the Aether. That's what the post calls it! DAMN YOU! (JK)

I have never used fast travel before, and I think that it should stay in the nether. There is no reason not to use the nether for fast travel, and instead use the Sky Dimension. Who knows what is in the Sky Dimension. For all you know, it could be filled with even more dangerous mobs than the nether. In fact, how do you know that it has fast travel in the first place?

Have withstood pain to create many weapons
Yet, those hands will never hold anything

Just saying, a reward IS needed, otherwise, why would you go there? Fast travel is kind of a reward, but not enough for me to go to the Nether. In my opinion, it sounds like an annoyance.

Trust me. If you have lots of bases far apart, the Nether fast travel is VERY useful. If you can build a safe tunnel through the nether, your reward is fast travel. Why do you think fast travel should be in the sky dimension instead of the Nether?

And it is not the Aether. It is a dimension with floating islands. That is all we know.

for one things, Notch still isn't done with the nether. He said he is still working on improving the nether. Also, how would taking fast travel out fix that problem?

I never said it should be in the Aether. And Notch didn't make the idea. There is a GIANT thread all over the forums about the Aether. It was a mod, and Notch liked the idea, and is now putting it in the main game. Who said the Nether isn't called Hell? HMMMMM!

Fix what problem? That it sounds kind of like an annoyance? Removing something that is an annoyance solves a problem, doesn't it?

Tweets or it didn't happen. Notch never called it the Aether or affiliated it with the Aether suggestion in any way. All he said was that he was working on adding a floating dimension.

Also, how is fast travel an annoyance?

So, Notch is stealling? Wow, what a douche.
And fast travel is an annoyance when you don't want to go very far, but link two portals.
I get far away bases, but what about Airships or better boats and minecarts?
If Notch adds ores to the Nether and the suggestions above, Nether fast-travel would be unnecessary.

Yeah, Notch is stealing his own floating island idea that he himself had implemented in indev.

I don't understand how you are coming to the conclusion that implementing your ideas would do away with the need for fast travel via the Nether.

The reward for going to the Nether is the fast travel ability, along with some unique block types.  You may not consider that enough of a reward, but others are perfectly happy with the Nether.

Yeah, a block that kills you, one that helps kill you, and one that is kind of helpful, with a 9:1 break/make ratio is definitely a reward. And, yes, read the damn thread about the Aether. Theres this great little thing called the DAMN SEARCH BAR! And there is no "need" for fast travel in the Nether. A simple form of transportation that moves you quite quickly is much more effective than harvesting the most difficult-to get material in all of minecraft to go to a dimension where flying octopi creatures that shoot fireballs kill you and destroy your minecarts every five seconds your in there, is really helpful! Maybe just make the Nether more SURVIVABLE! I don't know. But some aspects of it seem to just not work, and so I think that it should be fixed. And also, BARELY ANYONE PLAYED INDEV! And, if it was in Indev, why isn't it in Beta? BECAUSE THE AETHER MOD WAS MADE IN BETA, AND THEN NOTCH USED THE IDEA WITH NO CREDIT TO ITS MAKERS! He broke his own forum's rules!

The Aether mod hasn't come out yet, why do you say it has?
