Hi,

Ok so I made a portal, jumped through, got my first glimpse of the nether, game crashed, reloaded and now the portal door is gone and i'm stuck in the nether... it's lovely and all but would rather like to return upside where my buildings are please.

Any suggestions on how to get out? I have no more  :) on me... does the nether have any? (haven't seen any yet.)

Looking forward for any help  :RFlower:

Have a Flint and Steel? Just relight it. If not, you're stuck in the Nether.

If you really are desperate to get out, however, use INVEdit and edit in a Flint and Steel to relight the portal.

Portal is gone, when the game crashed my portal must have reset or something because it is no longer there when I got back into the game :s I do have flint + Steel but no portal gateway anymore. Is there water in the nether? if so I have a bucket, could try and make some obsidian with all this lava and my F+S.

Well, if you don't want to be stuck in the Nether forever, download Copyboy's INVEdit if you haven't already. Load up your world in INVEdit and edit yourself 14 (the amount you need to make a portal's frame) and select "Save to World #". Then load up your world, make the portal again and light it.
@The water making obsidian idea, I'm pretty sure water evaporates once placed in the Nether. At least, that's what I've heard.

Though, your portal may bring you somewhere else in the overworld because it got "reset".

@XBel: Yes, if you die in the Nether you do go back to the overworld and your spawn point there.

.... lol did you all hear me smack my forehead where you're sitting. I can not believe I was QQing and the solution was so simple. Died, game crashed (think it really doesn't like me going to the darkside) and reloaded fine *phew* Snake I'm not a fan of generating items but that was also a smart idea as well.

Xbel & snake thank you!  :obsidian:  :iapprove:  :obsidian:

Ha! No thanks, with the new changes I have access to some ice now, seriously thank you again. I did this nether exploration in my largest world and was sooking when I couldn't get out lol.

If you find yourself in this precarious position as I did tonight, it should be noted that the ghast's explosive shot can disable or enable your portal. I figured this out by mistake when I walked up to my inactive portal, heard a shot, and retreated in time to watch the explosion reopen my portal. I walked up towards it only to hear another shot fired, and watched as it closed the portal. So, I got him to shoot it again, then lured him away from the portal using myself as bait. Walked back up and zoned out with half a heart left.

*cough*she*cough* lol

Yeah  {SMILIES_PATH}/flintnsteel.png  wouldn't have helped because the whole doorframe was gone and I had no Obsidian so death was my only way out. I needed to go back into the Nether so as soon as I got in I dropped  :D and filled it with some emergency supplies like :Lime:  and  {SMILIES_PATH}/flintnsteel.png. It's happened to me a couple of times now but if I make the portal in the same spot topside I spawn in the nether right near my safety  :Lime: ... so now when I get stuck I just build a new one.

Darn all that tasty lightstone being in the glitchy nether.
