1.04 was an update to the original The Aether mod, which was released on December 26, 2011.


  • Added White Apples which, when eaten, cure any poison for 6 seconds
  • Added Crystal Trees. These trees can be found floating on small islands throughout the world. Some of the Crystal Leaves found on the trees contain White Apples.
  • Swets now drop Swetty Balls. Swetty Balls can be right clicked onto Aether Dirt to grow it into Aether Grass
  • Aether Grass can now be enchanted by right clicking it with Ambrosium Shards. Enchanted Aether Grass increases the quantity dropped by crops that are planted on them (at the moment this only applies for Berry Bushes since they are the only crop block in the Aether)
  • Berry Bushes now drop 0-2 Blue Berries. This means you have a chance to receive no berries when harvesting them. Planting Berry Bush Stems on Enchanted Aether Grass changes the drop rate to 1-3
  • Added leaf decay to Christmas Trees
  • Added golden particle effects to Golden Oak trees


  • Made Christmas Trees slightly rarer. Their generation can also be disabled by setting christmasContent=false in the Aether config file
  • Blue Berries, Ginger Bread Man, and Candy Cane food items now heal 1 full hunger icon instead of 1/2 of a hunger icon
  • Fixed Sapling drop rate from Golden Oak and Skyroot trees
  • Healing Stones now have a gradual health regeneration effect, and no longer heal instantly.
  • Changed Berry Bush generation. Now generates in larger groups.
  • Lava now turns into Aerogel instead of Obsidian when placed in the Aether.
  • Changed animal movement weighting so that its optimized for the Aether terrain.
  • Fixed Aether sounds not working.
  • Removed the unnecessary edit in GuiInGame.


  • Fixed issues with Dungeon Chests. Using a Key on them also no longer consumes it.
  • Fixed transparency issues with Christmas Leaves.
  • Fixed a crash where if you created a new world, it would output an error Already Decorating!
  • Fixed a bug where exiting a world while in the Aether would create a second Aether, and then teleport you back to the same coordinates in the Overworld, often suffocating your character in the main menu.
  • Fixed a bug where shift-clicking while in the Altar GUI would crash and corrupt your save.
  • Fixed a bug where Beds would not place correctly in the Aether.
  • Fixed a bug where, while another block was on top of it, Aether Grass would change its metadata into something ridiculous instead of changing it to a Aether Dirt block
  • Fixed a bug where Skyroot Swords used a normal Wooden sword sprite
  • Fixed a bug where players bodies would stay behind after death
  • Fixed Cloud Parachutes entities not using proper texture

  • Fixed a bug where Aether Dirt would have no name.
  • Fixed Skyroot Leaves dropping normal Leaves.
  • Fixed a bug where Berry Bushes would get removed from chunks and the drops would spawn at the players head.
  • Fixed a bug where Presents would randomly explode.
  • TNT from Presents no longer destroys terrain.
  • Fixed mob pack-sizes and rarity.
  • Fixed a bug where it would snow and rain in the Aether.
