The entire dimension is made of floating rocks varying in size, from 1 up 30 blocks large. The gravity is very low (microgravity). A player without the ability to fly can jump from asteroid to asteroid - there are enough small rocks between the large ones that that is normally possible, at least with the help of a Grapple.
Asteroids' dimension number is -30.
The Asteroids can only be reached with the use of a Tier 3 Rocket. Thus, trying to fly to this dimension with a Tier 1 Rocket or Tier 2 Rocket is impossible. Tier 3 Rocket Schematic can be found in a Mars Dungeon.
The Sun does not move, it is always still on West. The Sun is not bright here due to the distance, making the whole dimension relatively dark.
From version 3.0.6: Some asteroids have a core which is rich in ores: these can include
- Ilmenite Ore
- Iron Ore
- Aluminum Ore
- Silicon Ore (rare, 4% chance)
- Solid Meteoric Iron (very rare, < 2% chance)
- vanilla Diamond Ore (very rare, < 2% chance)
For now, there are only few structures inside some asteroids. In the future other structures will be added.
Hollow Asteroid is a hollowed-out asteroid with some kind of "hidden garden" inside. Normally they are 30x30 wide; their outside is covered with Dense Ice and the inside is made of dark Asteroid Rocks and there is a big room with grass and Glowstone. Depending on the occurrence, there may be dwarf Oak Trees and Poppies on the grass.
Despite the Glowstone, hostile mobs can spawn in there, so be careful to get rid of them first before entering. Evolved Creepers can blow up the thin shell of the asteroid and you may fall into the void.
Moving small asteroids can damage the player, so stay out of their way.
