I've heard about another dimension in Minecraft, similar to the Nether and the End, but I don't know how to get there.

Does it exist? Is it possible to get there? If so, how?

Unrelated information: You might want to have a look at the biosphere mod. Which gives you a world generator that also creates a special kind of sky level. –  Michael K Jul 3 '12 at 14:46

A currently-unfinished version of the Sky dimension does exist within the game, but is inaccessible without the use of mods. While notch, the original creator of Minecraft, said it was "confirmed", it was put on indefinite hiatus until the Nether was made "more fun". It has not been mentioned at all in several months, and there are no plans for it to be implemented in vanilla Minecraft properly.

However, as I mentioned, there are many mods that can grant you access to it: for example this one which causes the portal to the End to instead take you to the Sky dimension.

Well, the the sky dimension was supposedly going to be a "dream world" but Notch decided to make things "more interesting" by changing it to what we now know as The End. If you press F3 and look at the numbers it will say "Sky". The End is the sky dimension.

"The Overworld" is the common unofficial name for the dimension you spawn into.

From the nether, construct a portal, light it up and go through. You get a lit portal free of charge as you enter the nether; building a new one 128m (or 128 blocks) further away from the original portal will not get you back to where you left so be careful!

From the end, the portal to go back to the overworld will appear after the credits roll.

If all else fails, simply die. You'll respawn in the overworld - if at all (HC worlds need not apply)

Doesn't answer the question, which is about a separate dimension to the Nether and the End –  Gareth Jun 12 '12 at 6:25
@Gareth The question was about the Overworld when I started answering. If it was edited after I answered how would I know? –  badp Jun 12 '12 at 7:56

There is a mod called "The Aether"


Once again, it's a mod, so its nothing official. Still tho, i advice you to check it out.

Otherwise, there is no official Sky Dimennsion.
