There's an April Fool's snapshot out.

Love or hate him, CaptainSparklez had a pretty genius idea for an adventure map requiring you find books to reach the next segment. You'd have to do a bit of searching to locate non-fucky worlds but I kind of love the idea.

You could do that in modded using RFTools Dimensions but vanilla has zero barriers to entry so that's a big win in my book.

The neither portal sounds like a pretty viable way to add infinite dimensions to vanilla minecraft.

Have you heard of the mod Mystcraft?

Of course.

Mystcraft is decidedly not vanilla, though. There's a big difference in having to hunt down a bunch of pages and craft a bunch of mod-specific stuff vs. writing stuff in a vanilla book and tossing it into a nether portal.

I'm on the fence as to whether a vanilla implementation should be entirely chaotic (seed based on the book's content), or if certain word structures in the book should correspond to how the dimension is structured (basically an even closer approximation of the D'ni world-building language than Mystcraft's pages).

In the end, custom dimensions is probably very slightly outside the scope of what would improve vanilla.

Not sure if anyone here is interested, but minecraft bedrock (win10 edition) has RTX open beta. You need at least RTX2060.

I noticed the modpack "Project Ozone 3 A New Way Forward", and how it says "the fun begins when the quests end". Has anyone tried the pack, and can they confirm that some cool shit happens when all the quests are completed?
