NetherEx is a large reworking of the Nether, focused on three core ideas: Expansion, Exploration, and Experience.
The mod currently adds four new Nether biomes, each is designed to fill a specific purpose within the Nether and each has a unique approach to the others. These biomes are populated by ten new mobs, decorated by 34 new blocks, and filled with over a dozen new items to find and use.
Three new armor sets, a brand new set of weapons, and four new food items allow for pure Nether survival. Three new potions introduced in NetherEx gives you a lot more options for various approaches to fights. An all new boss is introduced for you to summon and vanquish. Sixteen new structures can be found and explored, these new structures include nine mini dungeons with more on the way. A new gem can be found that allows you to trade with the Pigtificates, which can be found in their villages hidden inside the Nether, guarded over by their faithful golems and ruled by a greedy chief.
We put a specific focus on making everything integrate as easily as possible with Vanilla so nothing stands out too far. Mod compatibility was also a focus, so it's very easy to integrate other biomes with this mod, add new items to loot tables, add new trades to the village, and even without any tweaking, other mods items will show up in our treasure chests as long as they were placed among vanilla loot tables, making it easy to play outside of a mod pack as well for even beginner mod users. Many of our features were suggested by the community and inspired by popular requests, so, we've paid a lot of attention to what the community wanted in regards to a Nether overhaul and tried to work off that where possible.
