    Considering the creator of the Aether mod works for Minecraft now, I could see this being a legit addon to the game

    Notch previously mentioned adding a dimension like from the Aether Mod before the release of 1.0 and now with kingbdogz on the development team, This could be what we're seeing added here. 

    ...and it would be epic!

    I've always wanted an overworld extension so-called the "Sky Lands", and with the current Minecraft features, it can be fitted into the game and made lore-friendly.

    The way I'd do this is by changing the progression of they storyline like this:
    Overworld -> (Deep dark?) -> Nether -> Sky Lands -> End

    First off, to create the portal frame, I would recommend utilizing a recipe for respawn anchors, but instead of 3 glowstone, use 3 netherite scrap. This would create (unpowered) portal frames that can be lit by glowstone dust, (or possibly something from the deep dark?). 

    Then instead of generating portal dungeons in the Overworld, generate them in the Sky Lands in "Ancient Constructs" that have been left by "Ancient Worldbuilders". These "Ancient Constructs" could utilize new decorative blocks like "copper pipe" that makes it seem like a world-building machine. The "machine" gives it the feeling that the Overworld could have been a terraformed world.

    Lore-wise, the world builders would be the narrators in the end-credits. Throughout the credits, the world builders explain the dream the player built, imagined & created by two people; Julian and Markus.

    I think the idea is fine, it just needs a bit more major and minor changes.

    How about instead of the deaths creen, the player gets teleported to the sky lands?

    Perhaps when you first get to the sky lands dimension in each world, the sky is red (just like the nether) and you have to defeat a nether-related boss (perhaps red dragon) to “free” the sky lands/Aether. When you defeat the boss the sky should turn blue and it should mostly be a peaceful place.

    I think there could be a stormy biome in the skylands too. Mojang could also add local weather in certain biomes akin to there not being rain in the desert. I think sculpture-like stone trees would be cool too.

    Well I mean the guy who made The Aether mod does work for Mojang now and I'm pretty sure he helped with the Nether Update so I think adding The Aether would be a good idea and I am aware they don't want to add mods to the game but taking inspiration from a mod with the help of it's developer is different.

    More like The End to be exact since you're in the sky.

    they do not need a sky dimension since that is what the end already is.

    You know about this material called "Zanite" in the Aether mod? That material can be used for tools and armor. Maybe this Sky Lands dimension would have Zanite.

    Great idea, having the developer of aether working on mojang, will be easy peasy.

    I love this as it sorta like the aether mod. Maybe special cloud blocks that could be used in builds. I’m open to pretty much any new demensions as it adds a lot to the game.

    Doesn’t make sense for it to be another dimension, rather just in the overworld’s sky

    I don't think that Minecraft should have anymore dimensions right now.

    This would be a cool addition indeed, I've always wanted a sky dimension (once I tried making an Aether portal in vanilla MC lol). It could be that the general idea is similar to the Aether mod, making it the opposite to the Nether and a hostile paradise of sorts, but yet be different and unique in its own way, just like with pistons. One of the things I'd love to see are new dragons in this dimension, its literally in the sky so dragons would fit in nicely.

    Maybe the boss here can be the Giant?

    I personally think this idea needs more thought added into it.
    No offense, of course.

    And a big biome type? Maybe 1000-1500m diameter? On Sky biome border, end the earth, and continous on Sky, with flying islands in different heights, like mounts without ground below.
    With waterfall, and vinefalls. some islands connecting with waterfall, or vinefall.

    The developer of the Aether mod is apart of the Minecraft development team and has been for awhile and It would be great for them to do the Aether with a bunch of new features! Not the first time or the last the modding community has paved the way for future updates (mo creatures horses).
