I never took the time to install the mod for PC, but if it came for free I'd play it, haha. Although I would want the ability to switch it on and off, not as a permanent addition to the game. --- Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?
The problem with the Aether is that it didn't try to complement Minecraft's gameplay, it tried to supercede it. All overworld tools being useless in the Aether, and vice versa, meant that there was very little resource trading between the two worlds. It created its own world, but nothing was good for the overworld, so the mod got tons of backlash in the end. --- The Creepin' Squid First Mate Gastroid (Argh!)
Never seen the Aether but I watched the mod with the "Heaven" Portals and the people were just warped to a world of floating islands, didn't look fun. --- On GameFAQs it is okay to insult and belittle all races except for White people, then you get modded. True story.
