    The sky's the limit! You can't modify things like world size and chat colour, or interface messages, you can't added any new textures either :)

    You cannot modify the world size, but you can mock infinite worlds by keeping teleporting players between worlds.

    When I say you can't add textures, I mean you can't make new items or blocks, you could generate an new world or "dimension" though.
    Robotbuilder and PEMapModder like this.

    The nether something... NetherQuick? It means "dimension". Basically apart from mobs, which can be replaced by blocky mobs, nether implementation is possible.

    Could I make a plugin that allows players to 'morph' into other mobs? :)

    I would like to make my own plugins. I have beginners knowledge in java, so this might not be too hard.

    It is good you know Java. The basis to learn good plugins is the concept of classes.

    P.S. I learned classes all by myself without anyone or anything to teach me...

    If you know Java you might find studying the source code the most favourable method. The earliest plugin devs used this method.

    Or consider using MAPI (in development, will be released soon) I am making.

    The limit is Minecraft PE, and your coding skills
