Aether II Frequently Asked Questions
When is the Aether II's next update releasing?
Our next large scale update, Mutation, currently has no set release date or estimated release window. For more info on when you'll be seeing Mutation, check out our Facebook and Twitter.
What version will the next update be for?
The Mutaiton beta update will most likely launch running on Minecraft 1.6.4. After its release, we will begin porting to more recent versions, such as 1.8.
What's in the next Aether II update?
Our next update, Mutation, will bring the Aether II into its beta stage. It includes a ton of new content, including new mobs, items, and biomes. You can learn more about Mutation on our blog.
Can I make my own multiplayer server using the Aether II?
Of course! The Aether II is built on Minecraft Forge, meaning it's fairly simple to set up a server running it, just follow this simple tutorial from Minecraft Wiki. Remember to install both the Aether II and PlayerCoreAPI to the server.
All this Forge server stuff seems tricky... do you guys have an "official server"?
Yup, just hit the "Official Aether Server" button on the Aether II main menu and you'll join instantly! Alternatively, you can add to your server list.
Can I donate to the Aether II? Are there perks for donating?
Yes and yes! Check out our donations page for more information.
I found a bug! Where do I report it?
Our GitHub would be the place to go. Make sure you look through all the open and closed issue reports to make sure you're not submitting a duplicate, though.
Can I install the Aether II on a cracked client?
Good luck. The Aether II launcher requires a first-time login with your Minecraft account to validate any downloads of the mod. We've also gotten reports of several issues installing onto cracked Minecraft launchers. You won't get any support from us if you run into these issues, though.
The music in the Aether II is incredible! Can I download the soundtrack anywhere?
You can pick up the original soundtrack and the single "Ascending Dawn" on Emile van Krieken's Bandcamp.
Can I use the Aether II in my mod pack?
Yes, but we ask that you credit Gilded Games and the Aether Team when doing so. Also, be aware that the Aether II is in its alpha state is is incompatible with many mods. Fixing any incompatibilities is on you.
Can I help test the mod before updates are released?
All pre-release builds are made to be kept within the Gilded Games team and a small group of testers, we do not accept requests or applications to test pre-release builds. As for things like "snapshots", we feel these would only be necessary for large content patches, such as Mutation, and would like to keep most of the new content a surprise. If you really want to help out, feel free to submit bugs you find in the most recently released version to our GitHub.
Can I join the Gilded Games/the Aether Team? I'm a great coder/writer/artist/etc.!
We are very appreciative of how enthusiastic our community is and how involved you want to be with the project. However, we can't let everyone that asks to contribute join and the process of reviewing every applicant is very time consuming and difficult. Because of this, we have a policy of "Don't call us, we'll call you.". Once in a blue moon positions will open up and we'll begin accepting applications from the public. When and if this happens, we'll let you know on our Facebook and Twitter.
Issue: My launcher gets stuck when downloading, or doesn't download the Aether II at all!
You may have pre-existing files preventing Minecraft or the Aether II from downloading correctly. Backup your .aether folder (same location as the .minecraft folder), delete it, and try downloading again with a fresh copy of the launcher. If you're still having problems, there are instructions for manual installations on our downloads and installation page.
Issue: I donated but my special textures/server rank aren't unlocked!
This issue was recently patched in, but you still may not be registered as a donator. Please send a private message to our Facebook page
with your PayPal email address and your Minecraft username and we'll get you your perks as soon as possible.
Issue: I can't connect to servers, I keep getting "ID mismatches" (something like this)!
This is most likely because you have an old Aether II configuration file. To fix this, navigate to your .minecraft or .aether folder and delete the config folder inside. Relaunching the Aether II should generate an updated and correct version of the config. If not, make sure you're running the correct version of the mod.

AOS and Frequently Asked Questions
When is the Aether Official Server's map going to be wiped/changed?
We will be wiped the map with the release of, the summer hotfix, and will again with the releas eof the Mutation beta update.
Why does the Aether Official Server's map have to be wiped/changed?
Several reasons, most importantly the land generation and ID changes in the upcoming update. The map and player data (which includes inventories and locations) must be wiped to ensure compatibility with the next update and that all players will be able to log in normally.
How do you become a Helper/Moderator?
Helpers are players who have actively been with the Aether II and AOS community for a good while and have applied via the Helper Application to be promoted to a position of more responsibility. When the need for Moderators arises, users are hand-selected from the pool of Helpers based on activity, helpfulness, and knowledge.
Issue: I've been marked as a donator on the AOS but not on the site (or vice versa)!
This is typically caused by users not having their Minecraft account linked to their profile. There is a tutorial on how to do this on the Enjin Forums.
Issue: I'm signed in but can't post on the forums!
The most common cause for this is logging in with a pre-existing Enjin account without having joined first. Head to the homepage and click the "Join Website" button under your username on the righthand side.
Issue: I can't submit staff applications/help tickets!
You will have to create an account before submitting most applications. If you know you're signed in to the site correctly, you may need to link your Minecraft account to your profile (see above).
