Advancements are a way to gradually guide new players into the Aether and give them challenges to complete, similar to the advancement system in the base game.


Advancements can be completed in most game modes, and are obtained and saved per world. Advancements can also be granted (and revoked) using the /advancement command.

Although advancements guide players logically through the Aether, they are independent of each other; an advancement can be completed without having completed the advancements "before" it. There are 28 of them in the Aether tab.

When advancements are obtained, a sliding toast notification displays in the top right corner, and a message is displayed in chat if the game rule announceAdvancements is set to true. The color of the header text in the notification depends on the advancement; normal and goal advancements have yellow header text, while challenge advancements have pink header text. Completing a normal advancement causes the header text to display "Advancement Made!", completing a goal advancement results in a "Goal Reached!" header, and completing a challenge advancement shows "Challenge Complete!" In addition, music plays and experience is rewarded when completing these kinds of advancements.


The advancement interface. The "The More You Know" advancement is selected.

The button to access the Advancements screen is found on the pause menu screen. The player can also open this screen by pressing L (this can be changed in the in-game options menu).

The advancement system involves a tree composed of advancements, beginning with a root advancement from which several branches diverge. By clicking and dragging, the player can view different branches of the advancement tree.

Advancement icons display a header name and description when hovered over. The advancement descriptions have a unique color depending on the type of advancement with normal and goal advancements having green descriptions and challenge advancements having purple ones. As more advancements are unlocked, new ones become visible, with up to two advancements being displayed ahead of an unlocked one. Unlocked advancements show all of its direct parents advancements (the advancements between the root advancement of the tab and it), even those that have not been unlocked (but only show 2 advancements downstream of advancements already unlocked). Four advancements, "A well earned rest", "Ice Bucket Armor", "Plunderer's Remorse", and "Ultimate Ban Hammer" are hidden advancements, meaning that they cannot be viewed by the player until they have been unlocked.

If the player has not completed/unlocked any advancements, the interface shows a black background with white text reading "There doesn't seem to be anything here... :(".

The icon frames of advancements can vary in appearance based on difficulty, and whether or not it was completed. A legend is provided below:

Icon Frame Description
Incomplete/Regular Completed

Advancement-oval-raw.png Advancement-oval-worn.png Goal
Advancement-fancy-raw.png Advancement-fancy-worn.png Challenge

Extra advancements and tabs can be added and customized with the use of JSON files and data packs.
