The world is much more complex than everyone thinks. The reality we can see with our eyes is only one of the many that make up our universe. And although we cannot see them, these other dimensions influence ours in significant ways.

Did I forget to mention the world I’m talking about is the virtual world of Minecraft?

As every Minecraft player knows, each world inside the game features three different dimensions – the Overworld, the Nether and The End.

These three realities are extremely important to the game as a whole, offering something else to do outside crafting and venturing out.

If you’ve managed to brave the Nether countless times, and explored The End so thoroughly that it no longer holds any secret, then you’ve come to the right place: the following mods add new dimensions to Minecraft, each with their own secrets and dangers that only the bravest adventurers will be able to conquer!


15. Advanced Mining Dimension

A dimension made only of caves? A dream come true for any hardcore miner.

Or their worst nightmare, depending how much that miner enjoys his job.

Advanced Mining Dimension adds a configurable dimension made only of caves that will let you create the tunnel network of your dreams. Which are probably some very weird dreams, considering you could dream about much happier stuff.

Still, a fun mod definitely worth trying.


14. Runic Dungeons

The time of magic is nigh, so ready your staff and your potions: you’ll need them very soon.

Runic Dungeons introduces a new dimension filled with different magical dungeons that can only be accessed after finding the Magic Chalk in temples, crafting a Magical Staff, and then building one of the portals. All unique stuff exclusive to the mod.

Once inside the Runic Dungeons you’ll also be able to gather different amulets that enhance your stats, but only if you have the Azanor’s Baubles mod installed. Power always comes at a price, after all.


13. The Bumblezone

Is that the Flight of the Bumblebee I hear in the distance? Welcome to the Bumblezone!

The Bumblezone is a new dimension that’ll make you feel like you entered a bee’s nest. All you’ll see around you are Honeycomb Blocks, Honey Blocks, Honey Crystals, and tons of bees.

And they will get very, very angry if you touch any of their precious honey. So angry that not even Diamond gear will be able to protect you from their wrath. You’ve been warned.

What could ever be between this world and another, if not the Betweenlands?

The Betweenlands is a dark dimension where an ancient civilization once thrived. A place where mysterious creatures wander in search of unprepared guests, and food sickness and tool corrosion are real dangers.

With over 300 new blocks and 350 new items to boot, the Betweenlands will prove to be a challenge. Even for Minecraft veterans!


10. The Erebus

The Erebus Mod for Minecraft

If spiders black as night do not scare you, then you should definitely take a trip to the Erebus.

The Erebus is a new dimension in Minecraft populated by all sorts of giants insects that seem vicious and extremely dangerous.

The mob’s vanilla AI has been completely reworked as well, so their behavior is different from what you’d expect. And even passive mobs can turn rabid if you bother them. Scary stuff.

7. The Lost Cities

Adding a new dimension is a thing of the past.

Changing the entire overworld is the future.

The Lost Cities mod is among the few that do not add a new dimension to Minecraft, but rather change the regular overworld.

With this baby installed, the overworld becomes a sprawling city complete with highways, bridges, tunnels, and even a functioning subway system that’ll have you jumping from one dungeon to another much quicker.

Ah, subways: every adventurer’s best friend.

And this is more true in Minecraft!

The Twilight Forest is a dimension exploration mod that’s mostly geared toward adventure. It’s filled with new creatures to fight, dungeons to explore, and new loot with unique properties.

3. AbyssalCraft

That which is not dead can lie eternal, and with strange eons, even death may die.

AbyssalCraft adds a new dimension to Minecraft in more ways than one.

Not only does it bring new worlds to explore (that are extremely dark and very dangerous), but we also get an H.P. Lovecraft influence that certainly increases the game’s rating to AO.

Let’s thank the Great Old Ones that mods are not ESRB rated!

Nothing could ever be the same, high up in the skies.

The Aether II, sequel to the original mod of the same name, adds a new dimension located in the sky.
