The Aether is the main dimension in both the original The Aether mod and it's Aether Legacy port.. This article only covers elements found in the original The Aether mod. Like all dimensions, the Aether can generate infinitely. Aether Portals in the Overworld can be used to teleport to the Aether.
It is full of empty space, with islands in between each other. Along with normal clouds, groups of blocks generate in the sky, which are called Aerclouds.
Islands generate at a specific range of layers in the Aether, as a result, islands in the Aether tend to occupy an 'equator belt' of the Aether, not being able to generate above or below a certain threshold. Islands can vary in size, from barely being landmasses, to spanning thousands of blocks in distance. Mobs falling to their death is a very common, especially if a player flies below using Creative Mode, and not even Moas are safe. Overworld Aether Portals leading here will spawn the player at a common range of y layer.
Aerclouds can generate as low as 0 y. The very bottom of the Aether is technically considered The Void and going past it will cause the player to fall out of the Aether, be teleported back to the Overworld while high in the air, and land with nearly always fatal fall damage back to where their Aether Portal is.
Islands generate at an average of 54 y but can reach as low as 18 y or as high as 90 y. Aether Portals will spawn at an average of 44 y. Cold Aerclouds can generate as high as 101 y, Gold Aerclouds generate at an average of 114 y but generate as low as 101 y or high as 127 y. The sky will begin to gradually darken (increasingly sized black specks, until nothing but black) the further a player flies down towards The Void. Going past -0 y will cause the sky to blacken completely, and going past -2 y will cause the player to fall into The Void.
