Does anyone know if there are is a bug that prevents the end portal from activating after inserting the final ender eye?

Here is what I am doing:

Using MCEdit I copied an end portal frame into a schematic file. None of the end portal frame blocks has an  ender eye inserted yet.

Then I start a new world and using MCEdit, paste the end portal frame schematic into the new world along with a stack of ender eyes in a chest.

Then I relaunch Minecraft and proceed to insert ender eyes into the end portal frame blocks. However, when I insert into 12th ender eye into the last end portal frame block, the portal does not activate.

Has anyone experienced this problem before?

Does the end portal only activate at a certain height or light level?

I am mystified as to why I am getting this problem.

(Please tell me if I have posted this in the wrong section...)

It only works if there is lava underneath it, I had the same issue. Basically the best thing to do is copy the entire end portal room from a stronghold.

I tried this:

Using MCEdit I imported my portal frame schematic and a chest full of lava buckets.

Then I launched minecraft and added a 3x3 pool of lava underneath the portal frame before i inserted the ender eyes. It didn't work though.

I am going to try inserting portal frame and lava pool together next.

meow247, how do I remove an end portal frame block and reinsert a new one without mods installed? Or are you saying to do so in MCEdit and then relaunch?

After I copied an an entire stronghold room with the end portal frame it worked. I was able to insert eye of ender into the frame blocks and enter the end!!!

The end portal frame block is available in the creative inventory, and make sure the lava is at the right height, I believe there has to be one empty space between the portal itself and the lava.

EDIT: cool.

Double edit: found out the portal frame isn't part of the creative inventory, but if you want to get them without mods, place a chest, then fill it with whatever you wish in mcedit.
