    I've understood all the rules, including the ones regarding the trees and other aspects of the environment. I started playing Minecraft in the late Alpha-stages of th game, so i'm quite competent with the game and its mechanics. I have also never been banned of a SMP-server. My intention on the server is playing "Creative"-mode with survival-aspects along with 2 other friends who have recently joined your server (one of them being Nerikk).

    While the name might be a little misleading (Aechor Plant), these mobs actually originate from the Nether. I'm quite keen on the idea of subtle stories within Minecraft, so I've been playing around with a few plots for the mod. There are two plains: the Nether, which is a network of desolate, fiery caverns filled with bloodstained Cobblestone and sticky Soulsand which lies beneath the very soil of our Minecraft world, and the Aether, which is a collection of floating plains and islands, all connected together to create an opposite dimension of the skies. As you already know, these two plains are completely opposite in almost every way. A subtle plot idea that I had was that the blocks, creatures and shadows of the Nether all have an urge to "Plague" and "Spread" to anything which is pure. In some rare areas of the Aether, you would find small patches of Netherrack and Soulsand which have been placed there by Nether creatures in effort to corrupt the surrounding environment. On these patches you'll find large, poisonous vegetation: otherwise known as Aechor Plants (I might change the name now, since it does really sound like a plant which originates from the Aether). I also plan to have rare "weather" events called "Portal Storms". Basically, dark shadows will start forming in that particular area and Nether portal blocks will appear in random locations. Ghasts and other planned flying Nether creatures will escape from the portals and destroy blocks in the area (still no direct damage, since these Ghasts will be another entity which only destroys blocks). In retaliation, warriors of the Aether called Valkyries will slowly fight off the flood of monsters and then the event will end. Another idea I had was that Glowstone actually originates from the Aether, and the only reason you find them in the Nether is because it is an effort of the Valkyries to "purify" the Nether (so in a way both areas are trying to take over the other). I could either see you really hating this idea, or being "okay" with it. I'm going to guess you dislike it, but I'm really in favor of it because I really feel that the player needs some more interaction with its environment. Being able to help Valkyries fight off indirect damaging (but still deadly) Ghasts in order to speed up the retaliation is a very good way to motivate the player to interact with such events.


    I liked everything in your post, king, but this in particular made me really exited! Just one quick question: Will the Portal Storms be appearing in the Nether too then?

    Correct me if im wrong, but your supposed to be able to stay in the aether without having to go back to the overworld right?

    Meaning that ambrosium shards are the new coal, darts are the new arrows, zanite and gravitite is the new iron and diamond and so and and so forth... but what about redstone? i havent seen anything that can work like a redstone curcuit, so will there be redstone in the nether? and what about buttons, levers, presureplates, workbench, stone slabs, and stairs? will they be made with holystone and skyroot logs? And are railrods gonne be made of zanite?

    Or are some of the "old" minerals gonna be excessable in the aether? i hope not

    There isn't really anything about redstone that is essential to survival. Sure you should be able to stay, but it's not like every single aspect of the overworld should be mirrored in the Aether.

    True

    Don't forget that you also have to either find a dungeon that only sometimes have Records in them. There are only golden records in dungeons.

    My personal favorite activity in Minecraft is collecting Records, so i do it the fun way: of making a creeper die from a skeleton's arrow. I have many many records of both colors, as they are fun to acquire. So:

    The golden orbs are VERY rare, according to the post above, and the records are VERY rare in the first place(unless you're cool; like me), so i think that makes the Blue Record quite rare too.


    By the way, I have heard from a good source(my server i play on) that Notch will soon implement more records that can be collected(he visited the server and i got a screenie. so did other people.) and these records will have Deadmau5's music in them.(Deadmau5 was there too). If you want screenies, i can post them :biggrin.gif:

    The music discs were to be blue(a darker blue than in the art provided by the most recent post of Aetherness), orange, red and purple i think. Not sure if the colors were just speculation by my server-mates though.


    Please... PLEASE tell me your not trolling now. If you have those screen-shots, i would like, no i would LOVE to see them! If what you say is true, then things will get even more epic!!!

    I dunno, maybe i was just lucky with my world gen in the nether, but it only took me like 30 min to gather way more glowstone dust than required, if the portal is going to be made entirely out of glowstone. Still can't wait for the release! I hope it will be out soon. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! :smile.gif:

    Love the little grappling hook spoiler you put in ; )

    Sry to burst ur little bubble there, but he stated that the vid was made by someone who wasn't given the entire mod, and was also using other mods with it (including the grappling hook-arrow).

    On a different note: Really excited about getting home now (im outside of the country), so that i can download 1.4, and wait for the Aether-mod to get done ever more :biggrin.gif: (although i still check this thread about 2-3 times per day)

    Tons and tons of kudos to King, Kodaichi and Shockah!!! :Diamond:

    Hmm have to agree with the second poster on this one. Doesn't seem like a good idea. But i'm all for supporting the Aether, being a clan, discussing stuff about it when the mod comes out, etc. But i honestly don't think spamming Mojang and Notch is a good idea. +1 for initiativ & +1 for enthusiasm :smile.gif:

    We'll be getting a server tomorrow for a bugtracker (which will be used for suggestions, too) and small site.

    QUESTION: By server, do you mean as in a playable MC-server? (SMP) IF SO: Just for the modders then i guess?

    Ok, i just came up with a question: How do you know it's day / night-time? Is it so that when it's night, you see the moon but it's still pretty bright outside?

    Hurry up, hurry up, release a buggy, near-unplayable version if you must.
    Change the Moa back to orange, I say, the contrast is a good thing. They just blend in.

    I agree with this. The Moa's default colour should be orange. Can't quite put my finger on why, just a feeling i have :tongue.gif:

    SUGGESTION: Since only the Aether dirt can supply the vegetation in the aether with enough energy / food (can't think of the right word), that means vegetation from the overworld should grow faster on such soil. Is this possible to do without TOO much work? Cuz if not, act like you didn't read this, i want to play this mod as soon as possible :biggrin.gif:

    Question.... How do you get here? build up or use a type of portal?

    Glowstone portal.

    Not only glowstone. The way they talked in the IRC chat, it seems like it will be made of multiple types of blocks, glowstone being one of then. I may be incorrect on this, but i think it was the case. Someone please correct me if they are certain i'm wrong. :smile.gif:
