To access the Astral dimension you need to build the Astral Portal. The portal is built like the nether portal, but instead of obsidian you need at least 10 Glowing Obsidian and can be activated with a Steel and Dust.

NOTE: From version 1.5 you will need to install Geckolib to run the mod.

Jelly Glass is a special type of glass, having an unique texture and can be obtained when broken without silk touch. To craft one, first you have to find a Ghost Jellyfish. These mobs spawn in Sludgy Wastelands, Dead Coral Reefs and Lunar Spikes.

To summon it first you have to locate a Void Egg. These structures can generate rarely in Amethyst Meadows, Lunar Spikes and Astral Badlands.


Every Void Egg contains a Void Portal on top of it.

Place a Void Pillar above the portal, then place an Astral Altar on top of the Pillar.
