Natural generation[]

It can be found in the sky, even very close to islands, and obviously, forms clouds in the Aether. Since it also may generate under islands, this makes it useful to both stop fall damage and help create mining scaffolds under islands.

Aether II[]

  • Initial release: Introduced
  • Blue Aerclouds now correctly bounce players who are on a mount
  • An exploit with Blue Aerclouds, which allowed Survival players to fly was fixed
  • 1.7.10-1.2: Fixed Purple Aerclouds not generating in the Aether
  • 1.7.10-1.3: Aercloud entity fixed
  • 1.7.10-1.6: Flying through Aerclouds no longer interacts with the player


On occasion, a glitched aercloud with an extreme metadata variant(5) will generate. It acts and looks like a regular Cold Aercloud, however.
