Hunting Dimension Mod

The Hunting Dimension is solely for killing mobs. Inside, you can find more Creepers, Spiders, Enderman and more than you would in the Overworld. Although they’re slightly harder to defeat.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!

Hunting Dimension Portal

To enter the Hunting Dimension, a Portal will need to be created. Craft Hunting Frame pieces from 8 Logs of any type, as well as any Arrow. See the image below for the crafting recipe.

In total, you’ll want to craft at least 10 of these, which will require 24 Logs and 3 Arrows. That way, you can create a Portal Frame that’s similar to a Nether Portal, with the corners consisting of other blocks.

Activated Portal to the Hunting Dimension

A Hunting Portal should be 4 blocks wide and 6 blocks high. To ignite the Hunting Portal, right click it with any weapon (it won’t be consumed), or use a Flint and Steel. When you’re ready, equip your best combat items and head through the Portal.

Inside the Hunting Dimension

The first thing you’ll probably notice when you enter the Hunting Dimension is that it’s night time, even though it was day when you entered. That’s because in the Hunting Dimension, it’s eternally night time, which means hostile mobs can spawn without burning.

Hunting Dimension’s Green Sky

Though this is indicated by the dimensions green sky. If you want to return to the Overworld, just head back through the Hunting Portal which can be found in the Dimension.

The creatures that spawn here are different to those in the Overworld. Even though they’re all mobs like Zombies, Skeletons and Spiders, they have more armor, health and are able to deal more damage.

Though to make up for these changes, mobs have a higher chance of dropping their loot. So heading to the Hunting Dimension is great way of obtaining more Gunpowder from Creepers, or Ender Pearls from Enderman.

When inside the Hunting Dimension, any active Potion Effects on the player will diminish twice as fast as they would in the Overworld.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
