I like the idea of adding aether to minecraft, but I just really hate how minecraft tools have no use in the aether... so it's a complete new dimension. I just somehow wish they were connected somehow so people could benefit the real minecraft world by going and getting resources from the aether.
Early this morning Notch shared a brief preview of a new "sky dimension" that he worked on a bit last night. The new dimension looks to be a series of floating islands. While this was something Notch was probably just toying around with initially -- or joking about -- it looks like thanks to PC Gamer's quick reporting of the tweet, he's now decided to finish it.
No other details are known about when this new sky dimension will make its way to Minecraft, but check out the screenshots below.
Hmm...unless there are new blocks, mobs, or features, I'm not sure if this would be that great. Yeah, it looks kinda cool, but it seems that it would end up being pretty much the same as far as gameplay goes.
I agree whats the point unless there are new items. and also how are we supposed to get there? Portals like the nether. would it be a new demsion or just an add on to the normal world.
Eh.. I don't think I'd like the idea of having a huge island floating over my head.Especially if there are water and lave falls protruding from the sky islands onto my head! Then on top of that you have the animals and monsters that would probably walk off the edge of the islands and fall to their deaths. I'd start to think that the sky is falling!
