I apologize if this has been asked before, but I am having two issues. Both concern minecraft, but one is more an xbox one issue.
Okay for the minecraft question, Has anyone been able to find an end portal in their strongholds? I have created 2 maps and checked the tutorial map as well and none of these maps seem to have an end portal. I get into the stronghold and continue to use eye of enders and they all seem to come to areas that are detroyed in the strong like a ravine break etc. I never had this problem before the update.
The more important question, Has anyone else had problems getting into a friends online world and or talking to them in chat? My friend and I both have open NAT's and one time last week we were able to play on each others world for about 3 minutes. Then it said connection to the server lost. We also have been having issues talking in chat where it works sometimes and not others. Its very annoying since one of the main reasons I got the xbox one was so we could talk to each other and play minecrat together. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The End Portal is for sure a tough thing to find. ( I haven't found mine either yet ) with that being said I do remember reading something about the ender pearls taking you to the closest stronghold not necessarily where your end portal is. Best thing I could tell you is to mount up and go to each map and throw some pearls out.
I haven't tried to join anyone's world yet so I can't help you there.
The eye of ender takes you to a stronghold. It won't necessarily take you to the end portal itself. You have to look around the Stronghold for a bit if it indeed has an end portal. Took me a while today when recording a seed video to find the portal itself. You'll find it eventually. Just keep looking!
Okay well what about my other more serious problem? I can't seem to ever play on my friends map. We both have open Nat's and I have talked to xbox support twice. A good part of the reason why I bought the XBOX One was so that we could play minecraft together.
No it was not a 360 game transferred. I havent had a chance to join any other peoples maps. I am going to look into my router more. The strange thing is that I sometimes can get on his map, but not for very long. I would say under 3 minutes.
Erm as the xbox worlds all have a stronghold they will generate an end portal BUT if you have a ravine running through your stronghold that may be your issue as the ravines generate after the stronghold and can destroy the portal if they generate through them
I've been lucky lately and found the end portal by accident on two different maps that I had only played on a little each. Both situations were similar. I found a nice ravine, and decided to go down to the bottom to explore. On the first one, I looked up, and saw bookcases, which I desperately needed. So, I went up, broke down a bunch, then started exploring the attached dungeon, and came upon a silverfish spawner and the end portal. On the most recent one, the world I've just begun playing, I went down in a ravine because I saw abandoned mineshaft stuff. I poked around, found the big library, got books, and rails from the mineshaft, then stumbled upon the end portal. From now on, I'm just looking to explore deep ravines. I feel like I can almost count on finding them that way, now! lol
