Hi I just made a nether portal that I started yesterday and so far I have seen that it is the worst nether ever. I dug about everywhere down up left right and I cant find anything. It literally spawned me in a small room with 2 hallways that lead to nothing. I cant find anything also I have only seen netherack no netherbrick no glowstone not even any soul sand and get this NO LAVA! It is the worst nether ever any help or suggestions?
Im pretty sure if you reset it all it does is delete what youve done just in case you need more glowstone so then you could have that back to get more so I think it doesn't actually gives you a new nether.
build a new portal away from the old one in a another part of the map. that will put you in a different location in the nether. and don't place your portal in side a mountain or deep under ground. try placeing it in a flat open area... unless you're afraid of ghast
resetting the nether only resets the nether that is it I have used this if you feel the nether is not what you like then go for it the portal will remain go to the surface save and exit and select the option the reset the nether the over world will stay the same
Obviously, your portal has taken you to a location where you are well buried in netherrack. You may even be very low down in the nether (i.e. under the level of the lava lake). I do know of a few people that have literally dug themselves out of such a situation, but it takes some persistence and more than a little luck (if you are below the lava level). The easiest/best solution while keeping everything in survival is to build another portal in your overworld a long, long, long ways from your first and see where that one lands you.
