    – Mob spawnrates have been nerfed and also been made adjustable in the Aether config for modpack developers and any players who have issues with the spawnrates.
    – Fixed some bugs with main menu text displaying weirdly with unicode fonts.
    – Added Language button to the Aether Main Menu.
    – Made all texts in the Aether translatable, assuming none were missed.
    – Added partial Swedish language support.
    – Added partial Polish language support.
    – Updated translation credits.
    – Tweaked mob spawnrates.
    – Tweaked ore spawnrates
    – Reworked Swet AI entirely.
    – The Sun Spirit boss fight is a bit easier, with him now using multiple hitboxes similar to the Ender Dragon to make him easier to hit. Ice Crystals he spawns in the fight also no longer move vertically, so they’ll always move horizontally when being hit towards him.
    – Phoenix Armor now degrades slower when in water or rain, to make that downside less punishing.
    – Inebriation no longer damages armor.
    – Inebriation code is now more solid and should no longer crash.
    – The Accessory Menu can now be opened by default with “I”, this can be adjusted in Minecraft’s Controls settings. This offers a secondary way of accessing the menu in case another mod’s custom survival inventory prevents the Accessory Button from appearing.
    – Added Reskillable compatibility to the Accessory Menu; if an item is added that the player does not have the requirements to use, it’ll be kicked out of its accessory slot.
    – Accessories now have play equip sounds when equipped.
    – Accessories now update properly during login.
    – Fixed issues with the Accessory button’s offset relative to the Recipe Book sidebar.
    – Fixed an issue with the Player’s health frequently duplicating from certain events after using Life Shards with other mods.
    – Tweaked Aether Portal Frame item texture to be more accurate.
    – Added better fluid handling for activating the Aether Portal, which should fix incompatibilities with modded buckets.
    – Lowered cloud height to -5.
    – Added config seasonal_christmas which makes Holiday Trees automatically generate during December and January. This is on by default, unlike christmas_time which generates them no matter what and is off by default.
    – The OreDictionary entry “canHarvestAetherAmber” allows items to harvest Golden Amber from Golden Oak Trees. In the next Aether II update, certain Aether II tools will have this added to them, allowing them to harvest Aether I Golden Amber, however this is not yet implemented.
    – Tinker’s Construct pickaxes now work properly on Sliders.
    – Wearing an enchanted Elytra no longer makes the Crafting Guide button render as enchanted.
    – Adjusted Aerbunny position during Elytra gliding.
    – Fixed an issue with Parachute renders not following Elytra.
    – Probably fixed a crash issue with the Aether’s containers.
    – All Aether Portal sounds are now properly editable by Resource Packs.
    – Floating Blocks now properly drop as an item when reaching the world height limit.
    – Arrows now despawn after awhile when bouncing on Blue Aerclouds; before, they didn’t ever despawn.
    – Quicksoil Glass no longer makes blocks render darker below it when against the ground.
    – Backslashes are no longer used in the file paths of the generated Old Aether Textures resource pack, fixing an issue with it not generating on Mac.
    – Added a new config in config/aether_dimensions which allows for registering new biomes to the Aether dimension. This is primarily intended for modpack developers, there are details on how to use it that are commented inside the folder’s generated config file.
    – Right clicking the Cloud Staff while Cloud Minions are spawned can be used to despawn them if wanted. However, it should be noted that doing this and respawning them a lot will degrade the Cloud Staff’s durability quickly.
    – Reduced spawning requirements for the Valkyrie Queen, this might fix the issue where they sometimes don’t spawn in the Silver Dungeon.
