The Nether Reactor Core is easily the weirdest block added to Minecraft yet.  I've always loved everything added to Minecraft but this seems really, really weird.  I'm glad it's only a pocket version exclusive.
Here's the link on the wiki:
http://www.minecraft...er_Reactor_Core

Anyway, discuss your thoughts on the block.
I'm quite the shady customer.

It's a good way to add the nether without ADDING the nether

due to PE limitations it's an acceptable replacement i guess.

Pocket edition has issues loading another world (the nether) in one savegame, thats why they created the netherreactor, that way you get nether material without going to the nether.

Even if this was added to the PC version I'd never use it. Seems like a great addition for the pocket version though.

I'm glad this isn't in the PC version. Sounds very overpowered.

Mojang said the 3 separate versions would start to diverge in feature set once the base game was established more or less.

Neat addition either way, especially for PE. Makes me almost want to get it now.

Not at all overpowered. It's a giant pain to handle, because it spawns a giant obsidian tower and it drops mainly worthless items, and not much from the nether. Only thing nether related actually is zombie pigman, and glow stone dust, and I only got enough glow stone dust to make 5 glow stone blocks, using 2 reactors, and the reactor was made for a one time use only.

why isn't this is normal minecraft, or a better question, why is it in pocket edition
Because Pocket edition isn't as bad as it seems, and they didn't add it because most people wouldn't use it anyways.

Just imagine the easy griefing if this was in regular minecraft, this makes a giant obsidian room and it can be put anywhere, all they need is 36 gold and 4 cobblestone.
EDIT: It actually needs 3 diamonds and 6 iron ingots as well

Sounds bizarre. I see the purpose behind it, but still...

It is not overpowered at all it makes a big obsidian room but lasts for only one use
That means you need 36 gold every time you want another 6 glowstone/mushrooms

Because the PC version has the actual Nether. The Reactor is a work-around to the fact that the PE has no proper way of implementing the Nether, or any other dimension

According to the Wiki, after the Reactor has been used, it will convert to glowing obsidian, I like the idea of glowing obsidian.
Hey guys, I have an idea! let's be negative and a total ass towards the game developers! that will make them listen to us!
Note the sarcasm.

this block is so well as you said it weird! it took me about 3 hours to work out how it works!!! I thought you made a nether like portal with them and light it with flint and steel. and you know what is really annoying, whatever it is used for it only works on survival mode in PE!  Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted ImagePosted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Well the Nether Reactor generates a structure of glowing obsidian Posted Image that keeps growing and growing it also contains many items like melon seeds, cacti, (I think gold nuggets) and other rare items that I don't know about. This is not recomended to be placed near your base, house or residence in your MC:PE world as the structure it self (as mention before) keeps growing and growing that your house, base or residence will be either destroyed or covered with the materials of this structure. Keep in mind that zombie pigman (on PE) do not drop any items (for now). Posted Image
