Man the aether is a great mod, but i think there should be some new stuff, what do you guys think?
Same here. Personally the I think of Aether to be Minecraft's heaven...and well, would you actually eat meat in the heaven? Perhaps some might think of that to be normal but not me for sure. Just something with the gods I believe in I think, nothing much.
Got a suggestion although it seems to have been turned down a few times in this thread... Why not add perm. potion effects to different dimensions? Say perhaps you get some sort of potion effect when you are in the nether, similar to how Beacons work, and something else for the Aether with Overworld being completely free from effects.
The reasoning for this would be that since we are actually travelling across dimensions it would have some effect on us considering how we ain't the inhabitants of the dimension.
It would also give a reason for why you can't place a normal torch in the Aether, if that is of any concern.
^Yeah...meat could be a good idea but what if it came from a hostile mob? Like, rotten flesh. But it could be like Rotten Cocatrice or something, and it debuffs you if you eat it. However, you could put it on the Altar and "clean" it, like Cleansed Cocatrice, and it would be good to eat and heal a lot of hunger.
If theres a place for Rotten Cockatrices it wouldn't be in the Aether for sure... Perhaps the Nether?
The cleaning part does sound nice though, finally giving a reason for Rotten Flesh from the Zombies.(Then again, wouldn't that become Human Flesh? ew.)
Didn't really mean that, was focusing more on the fact that it was rotten. It's like, the heaven should be completely...Angelic, while on the other hand the Nether should be full of rotten and dead monsters.
The whole deal is about Meat. Meat is not an Angelic feature, its a mortal one. Something the gods created so that spirits could join the Overworld and the Nether. Eating flesh (meat) would be the same as eating the creation of the gods for those spirits and, therefore, it can't be allowed in the Aether. Maybe if they did so in the nether (as Chuankai said) I could agree, but its a complete NO on the Aether
Tempests and Zephyrs: Umm... NO
Cockatrice: Poisonous meat. Bad idea for a heavenly place.
Cows, phygs: Get your meat in the overworld
How about more decoration blocks such as Aether Bricks? You can now find new Heavenly Clay which can be smelted into an Aether Brick. Aether Bricks are basically just like regular bricks but a light blue color. You can make special Aether Flower Pots (Which have Aether Dirt in them, instead of regular dirt. This makes it so that you can only plant aether plants in Aether Flower Pots.) and Aether Brick blocks. Maybe a new ore could be added, too? Aether Quartz. Aether Quartz is just like Nether Quartz but has a dark blue color like lapis lazuli.
Maybe some new weopon types? For example, you can freeze Aether Quartz into Cold Quartz. You can throw Cold Quartz at enemies and they will get the slowness effect for 4 seconds. You can sharpen your Cold Quartz and get Sharp Cold Quartz which you can throw at enemies. Sharp Cold Quartz gives the slowness effect for 4 seconds and does a heart of damage.
Maybe an upgrade for the Continuum Orb? You can combine 4 Continuum Orbs to get a Block of Continuum. Place the block down and shift click it and you will get a random item. However, you have a higher chance of getting a good item from a Block of Continuum.
