Man the aether is a great mod, but i think there should be some new stuff, what do you guys think?
Responses to noteworthy ideas:
Aether redstone = dumb. If it holds no other unique function then we might as well just use regular redstone.
Valkyrie Dungeon: We are developing 2 new dungeons atm, both original concepts. And we're overhauling the Slider's Labyrinth to make it more... structured. But atm there are no plans to reintroduce the old silver dungeon. But rest assured, if we do so at some point (highly likely, just not atm) it will be similar to the original, only expanded to meet the style of my art assets and Liberty's lore. Whenever a plot point in our stories comes up involving the Temples, I always imagine them very similar to the original ones. So there hopefully will be little change.
Just the general request for Dragons: If you follow the lore thread or even just the Facebook page you would know that in the Aether's world, there are Dragons. They're called the Drac'san, a vampiric race of mutated lizards that experiment with genetics, who are also the main enemy of the Angels. They're not your conventional Dragons, but they're certainly a feirce, feral type of enemy.
Biomes: Now this is something I'm happy that you've all been requesting. We're definately adding biomes before we step into Beta. Probably not within this next update, as we're really pushing for a close release, but biomes are on their way. Which has made me very happy because it gives me a chance to design what the Aether actually looks like. So look out for more info on the FB page for biomes :3
Hydra: Yeah... No. Don't like Hydra, not very Aethery, maybe if we bring some of our Gaen (overworld) ideas into the mod we could have them as a new overworld enemy, but I don't think we're really going to touch the main overworld.
Gryphons: Again. I don't really like Gryphons unless we made them really unique, like we did with Angels and Dragons. I prefer Minotaurs, which I am totally pushing to be a boss ;)
Pet Cockatrices: Defeats the point of them being the evil counterpart of Moas. Stupid idea lol. Maybe we could have some equipable weapons for Moas that give them the desired features that a pet Cockatrice would have though o.O
So that's all from me. Keep bringing in your suggestions. I DO actually read them and forward good ones to the rest of the team. ;)
Some people just want to play the aether and not go to the overworld. So if you were playing that way, you might want to make some machines in the aether.
You have to get to the Nether for Glowstone... Which means you will have to get diamonds for sure, unless you use creative to create a Aether portal.
By the time you get 3 diamonds I'm pretty sure you would have found enough Redstone to last you some time on Aether.
Exactly, and anyway We may have some kind of electronics system when we properly implement Angels (as some sects of their culture include advanced engineering) but it again will have to be very different from redstone and serve its own purpose that is unique to it.
I think an aether bed should be added, it could be crafted with 3 skyroot planks instead of normal wood and 3 cold aercloud instead wool.
3 cold aercloud instead OF wool
they should add cockatrice nests and make moas easier to find, as well as even out the spawn ratios of everything, since my game is infested with zephyrs and tempests and cockatrices. the only things other than them that i have found are three carrion plants, two sheepuffs and two aechor plants. also, they should re add flying cows, i want to see some.
There should be a new boss other than the valkarie queen and the sun god.Maybe there could also be new food, new weapons and tools, moa armour and maybe an angel village and some dragons???
would it be cool if there was a holy mooshroom or is it just me?What about a holy cockatoo, 3 new moa colours better than the black moas, holy flying monkeys and holy squids!!!
Now for the deep Nether!
There should be a magma Turtle, dark cockatrice, vampiric mobs, a flying magma serpant and a corrupted zombie viking boss!!
these may be crazy but there great in my eyes!!
They should add cockatrice nests, make passive mobs more common( its a miracle to find a sheepuff right now) and let you put armour on moas (maybe put orange moa back in). Also, maybe make swets tameable again? Dragons might also be a good idea, but they should be tameable ( like hatch the dragon egg in an incubator to get a tamed ender dragon)
