Minecraft Dimensions


Dimensions are accessible realms within a Minecraft world characterized by a way of generation, biomes, structures, and other things unique to one dimension. Players can explore and discover various dimensions in Minecraft, typically through the use of portals.


Overworld


The Overworld is the primary dimension in Minecraft. It has a wide variety of unique biomes to explore and is easily the most diverse of the dimensions. Players will typically spend most of their time in this dimension.

The Nether


The Nether is a dimension containing oceans of lava. The ground consists mainly of netherrack and is typically considered the underworld of the game. Entering a nether portal from the Overworld will take the player to this dimension. Despite the hostile nature of the dimension, there are still times of peace, though these are few and far between.
