How to get into Aether

#1tidusishiPosted 7/26/2011 11:03:13 AM
ok so installed the mod and everything i start the game up and i get the little tip at the bottom when the map is loading.

when my character spawns i have the special inventory slots and everything but the trees look normal and so do all of the mobs... nothing is different.

do i need to do anthing special in game to gain access to the Aether? any ideas whats up with this?

The Aether is a different world, like the Nether is. It doesn't change your normal world.

To make an Aether Portal make a 4x5 frame out of glowstone, like you'd do with Obsidian for the Nether. Then dump a bucket of water in it to activate it

The Aether is a different world. You have to make a portal out of Glowstone and a Water bucket, like a nether portal (but with those materials instead)

Sadly no, it does not have any multiplayer support and they haven't said anything about adding it.

And considering the amount of time they put into making for singleplayer, multiplayer seems like a long shot...

There was some problem with portals working on SMP (the way they were implemented would require a second server) which kept the Nether from working, and I think work on Aether began before Nether was fixed for SMP. I'm sure it'll get a SMP release at some point, but it'll be a while.
