The Aether Wiki: Genesis of the Void

Blocks are the building blocks of Minecraft and the Aether.


Both solid and liquid blocks make up the game world and can be harvested, destroyed, and utilized in various ways. Some blocks such as Quicksoil Glass are transparent.

A handful of blocks emit light, such as torches. See Light for further info on the subject. Almost all blocks ignore gravity. Most solid blocks are one meter high but some have non-standard size.

Block textures are 16x16 but Minecraft's engine natively supports textures higher than that in multiples of 16x16. Resource packs can be used to change block textures and animations.
