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.
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.
Unique features of the Overworld include:
Sleeping in a bed skips the night
It has a large number of biomes
Has surface and underground biomes
Oceans filled with water
Lots of ores
Lots of naturally generated structures
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.
Unique features of the Nether include:
Messy and chaotic terrain
Ceiling made of bedrock
Piglins to barter with
Structures such as Bastion Remnants and Nether Fortresses
The End is a space-like dimension with floating end stone islands and accessible with an end portal in a stronghold. It is typically considered the opposite of the Nether. The End is a barren environment, but it is the only place where some of the most unique and useful items in the game can be obtained, such as the elytra or shulker boxes.
Unique features of the End include:
Barely any Bedrock
