Working on mine too, but the idea is that i build a 2 block hole till i find a cavern, then i will use the crafting pattern to make the portal down there. Up where the 2 block hole start tough, i'll make a gateframe out of obsidian, and put water there, so you like walk into the gateframe, then follow the water down to the cavern, and in there is a portal, the reason i am going to do that is that notch said ghasts can spawn next to portals and destroy your house, not with a 2 block hole that he has to go through first =D
you guys seem to miss the fact that there will be MORE than 1monster in this update and mabby (probbly) other hell monster can spawn in the real wolrd too. What if those monster where normal size one? Oops we have a problem :3
I didn't think of that O_O And normal monsters can swim... What if it's a super creeper? Then i am doomed! Now it's maybe a better idea to build the hell portal LONG from your base...
or put a gate XD
mabby i will make a system with the water gate so i get a stream of water that slow down monster (most of the time there too dumb and they can't swim upstream) so when you are down you can close the gate, get up and put it back on.
But don't know when the water/lava gate will be put in the game.
I already build i huge hole to the bottom of the earth and built a hell gate there and put a stair case going down the sides of the square to the bottom with glass on top so i can see if theres a ghast down there
because you don't need to 'craft' it on a workbench. Its not a place-able inventory item. You need 14 blocks of Obsidian in your inventory and you need a flint and steel to light the bottom 2 squares on fire.
Enjoy. The main pyramid and the center inverse lava pyramid was made by hand (roughly 25,000 blocks of cobblestone, and about 6 hours work). The lava moats I edited in since I'll be starting again legit when the Halloween update comes out :biggrin.gif:
