Well, I check back here and what do I find...
More angry Aether fanboys? Check.
A reasonably strong defense put up by Damoniy's fans? Check.
And an update?!? Woah, that wasn't on the list, let's check this out...
First off: the new textures are helping a whole lot, the greater visual distinction does start to move this away from the Aether a whole bunch. The thing that I am skeptical about, however, is the purple trees. Not just because the Aether has purple trees now, but because they kind of clash with the landscape. (To be honest, it looks as thought the trees were colored by a kid going ham with a highlighter.)
The colors for the grass and new plants/fruit look natural, but with the trees, they seem like plastic yard ornaments I'm afraid. The wood texture could also be a bit less uniform: from a distance they just look like plain poles instead of real wood. The thing about the Aether's purple trees is the fact that they go with the landscape. Most textures use "cool" colors, so the trees are a more "cool", washed-out purple which fits in with the overall scheme. The tree problem here is that they don't fit your overall scheme right now.
Also, it would be good to have several kinds of tree instead of just all purple. Once you have biomes, I could imagine grasslands with a few sparse trees, colored in a fiery orange, and dense jungles of purple trees. Having ordinary green trees isn't bad either. with the current look, I feel that blue trees would be a better change as the "normal" tree of the ether, with the proposed purple and orange having some special drop either from the wood or leaves.
Another texture quibble: the dirt is a little bit too green to look like dirt, you know what I'm saying? The old aether-esque blue/grey wouldn't work with the current grass, but vanilla dirt would be bad too... I'm thinking maybe a lighter kind of dirt, like a mix between the vanilla sand and dirt textures.
Now, I have another idea for moving your mod away from the Aether: fixing the portal. The original nether portal was a doorway. The Aether mirrored that with glowstone. Ok, cool. Now lets look at other dimension mods: some use doorways of new materials, but the thing that jumps to my mind as unique is the Twilight forest, which instead uses a pool of water transformed by throwing in a diamond.
Now, what can you do, Damoniy? Imagine this: a beacon portal. It could be a little pryamid/altar of glowstone or what have you. (hey, maybe even nether quartz!) You would then craft some kind of "portal focus", maybe out of gold/diamond, and right-click the top block with the focus, placing it on top. A beam of light shoots up to the sky, and when you step in it, you're whisked off to the Ether!
Sorry if the post is a bit long, all kinds of stuff jumped into my head.
I loved it!
Really are great ideas, I'm really going to try to change some things, I'll try new things with the portal also ... maybe nether quartz that is easy to achieve.
About the trees, I will see what I can do.

The aether team IS updating. Look at their facebook, it's going to be released very soon.
Also, you are ripping off the purple trees from aether. Look in the spoiler to the left.
This would be a really cool mod if you weren't ripping off aether. I just noticed, add an "A" before "Ether". What do you get? Aether. Try and make something different, the portal is the same thing as aether too.
Like the guy above who posted, do not consider this as hate or flaming. Im just giving feedback.
Ripping Purple Trees of Aether? please..

I'm not going to hate. I'm just going to state my honest opinion as constructive feedback and NOT hate.
It's fine that a mod is inspired from another. That's perfectly fine. But that's not my main problem.
My problem has nothing to do with the Aether at all, it's the way the world looks and the mobs. The land doesn't look like a Nether recolour which is awesome. Props for that. The world looks sort of bland though. If there were some unique biomes and more unique ruins and structures, the landscape would look really good. Colour wise, the colours look pretty strange. The purple dirt and green grass just doesn't tile in together and makes the world look really wonky and crazy. That's the same problem I had with the Aether. But I sort of got over it. I would suggest changing the glow stone portal to a quartz frame. It would look better
As far as mob go, they look bland. They don't look unique, with completely different, custom models, they look like recolours of current mobs and textures. A lot of them I find boring and make your mod look like just another crappily done dimension mod, which is usually said about Nether recolours. I don't want that to be thought about this mod. I like that its unique from a lot of dimension mods. And I think if you gave the world a recolour and a bit of generation and mob make over, you could have a very unique, cool dimension in your hands.
I apologize if you take this as flaming or hate, it's not meant to be. Just constructive feedback and advice.
I'm trying to take a new path to the mod, I already have plans and even appreciate that wants to help,
but just compare the aether with the ether will not help anyone.

Oooooh, I'm liking the new mob ideas. Especially the Kitsune. Very nice! Will it be passive or neutral? Since it's sacred, it'd be pretty cool if we got punished for hitting it.
I intend make a special thing to this mob,heaven powers,floating powers and special attack when you interact with it.
But the rest is surprise, await =p

This mod is not a direct copy of the Aether. It may look similar, but this modder has put in his/her time to create a new "Sky Dimension." You may think of it as an Inspiration, so to speak.
Thanks for your attention,I'm really thankful by you come here.It is very hard to deal with it alone.
@Topic:Look the new animal of the next actualization:
The creature is a "Kitsune" of Japan culture,the animal is sacred, "go to heaven and back".
Apr 5, 2013Posted in: Minecraft ModsLook my new work in progress in this moment guys:
This guy is of Terraria,he will be a new monster of the dungeons.The dungeon will be formed by nether quartz blocks,some will float others will generate in the underground.
There will also difficult creatures to see, you will discover what will?Here go a hint!

Hey dude! Congratulations on the success!
I remember this mod when it only had 2 replies XD
Well done, buddy!
Want me to do another mod review on this, now that you've updated and everything?
Yeah! I loved your vids! Thank you Yin!
