How to Make a Dimension

Works with


Making dimensions is the most complex task to do with MCreator. However, it is not complicated and takes very little time. Simply do the following steps:

  • First, create a biome. You will need any to create custom blocks first if you want them in your dimension. (To see how to make a new biome, click here)
  • Then, create the dimension. It will be found by clicking on "New Mod".
  • Select the block you want the portal to be made out of. This may be a custom block if you wish.
  • Then, name the item which ignites it.
  • Afterward, select the texture of the igniter. This may be a texture you created if you wish.
  • Then, select the portal texture. This will be the actual portal piece, not the frame of it. It will appear when you ignite the frame.
  • Click Next.
  • The second page is much more in-depth. You must select what world type it must have. A normal world type will be generated similar to Minecraftia, where as the Nether type will be generated much like the Nether.
  • Next, you must select the "Main Filler Block". This will be the "stone" of your dimension. You generally want it to be stone or a block with similar properties.
  • Next, select the "Fluid Block". If your biome does not generate lakes, this will not appear in the dimension. But you must choose it anyway.
  • Next, select the "Secondary Filler Block".
  • Afterward, select the "Filler Block (nether type only)". This will only appear in the Nether Type dimension, but it must be selected anyway.
  • Then, choose the "Biome base:". Select the custom biome you created earlier.
  • Next, choose the "Fog/Air" color. This will be the color of the sky, and if you have any, fog.
  • Then you may select "can despawn here", "has fog everywhere", and "has dusk/dawn".
  • Click Next.
  • Now, make the crafting recipe for your igniter, or the smelting recipe for it.
  • Click Next, and then you're finished.
