Sense players are able to create their own End Portals by giving themselves Eye of Ender and Portal Frames(using cheats) to make portals (but only in single player and below sea level which should be changed >.>) I think it would be a great idea to make the frames craftable!

This would be a good idea because it is so frustrating to find Strongholds using Ender eyes and some people don't like to use TMI to make a portal. But there should be a few requirements and a few of the current ones should be removed.


Requirements for the portal to work:

  • The original build schematic which is already required
  • Should only work at night time and underground, not just below sea level like it is now. When it is activated at night it should de-activate at day and re-activate at night and continue this.
  • 12 Ender Eyes to be inserted which is already required

Requirements that should be removed:

  • That it is only able to function below sea level

It already requires 12 Ender Frames which each should be hard to craft. There should be End Stones in Dungeons to help craft. Because it would make sense that End Stones would be required to craft frames because they seem to already be End Stones with containers inside them. And the bolts shouldn't really be bolts as there isn't a "Screw" or "Nail" item in Minecraft, so it should be diamonds because diamonds are hard to obtain ^^ Eyes of Ender are also difficult to obtain so they should also be used in the crafting process.

Here is an image that I have created to show how a single frame should be crafted:

End Portal Frames should be able to be broken using a diamond pickaxe, but only player placed ones. Default ones should not be breakable.

Nice! but think the end-stonething is a little bit wierd t get, i think there should be more ways to get them, like trading with the squidwards in the villagers. also you can find some in mineshafts. and the top rows eye of ender should be replaced by a piece of obsidian or a new item called obsidian chunks, and the obsidian chunks have a 1/16 chance of dropping with a piece of obsidian and 9 chunks of obsidian can be crafted into 1 block of obsidian

Getting to The End is suposed to be one of the hardest objectives in the game, as it's practically completing the game. So trading or finding them in mineshafts would be too easy for some people. Finding End Stone in mineshafts would be more challenging, but not too difficult as it is part of crafting.

i would agree if you didnt have the idea to have endstone spawn in dungeons and i would think after the portal deactivates you have to reactivate it with 12 new ender eyes.

I honestly think the Dungeon one should stay, but the reactivate idea you said is pretty good!

But what about the effort of exploring to get to a portal?

Exploring usually gets you to a dungeon, if the End Stone is in the dungeon you need to find diamonds, you find diamonds by exploring. Then you need to kill Blazes and Endermen to get Eyes of Ender which uses action and exploring (exploring to find obsidian) then you repeat that 12 times and you can craft 12 End portal frames and you got your self a portal, then just repeat the last step 12 times and you can get yourself Eyes of Ender to activate the portal.

So you still get all the exploring and action to MAKE a portal!

rather balanced..

wait.. A WILD IDEA APPEARED


How about we have a dimension, separate from the boss area of the end, like have an infinitely expanding version of The End as a Main dimension, and a different boss dimension within that new dimension for the enderdragon.


The portal would be the same for getting into the new dimension, but would be "Non-static" and place-able anywhere, and the boss portal for the Enderdragon would be a different one.

Strongholds would have a portal to a new, overworld boss.

Of course this means there needs to be some way to get End Stone. There could be some naturally occurring End Stone in the Skylands, which would mean the order of the main dimensions would be

- overworld
- nether
- water dimension
- skylands/Aether
- The End



This is the breakthrough I've been looking for!

kiruclanz, Could I maybe use your graphic in my thread? I'll credit you if you deem necessary.

You idiot. How are we going to craft the portal to get to the place where we get a major piece of the materials for the portal?  :Skeleton:

Why not?


Having a naturally occurring deposit of End Stone in a sky dimension would allow The End to still be the last dimension, and the Enderdragon as the last boss of the game.


BTW

The skylands is just a generic name for the sky dimension, I don't have plans on implementing everything in the Aether/ skylands mods in my mod... if one every gets made.

Ok. I made this mod. It doesn't have all the fancy stuff like turning off in the day and stuff. All it does is add in the recipe and adds it to your creative inventory. Here It Is in case you want it.
