    Not all your portals connect to your first one - just explore a bit more with them. Portals get created on the nearest dry ground within a certain distance of the proper origin, on both the Nether and main world sides.

    Really, it doesn't look that way. As I said, I've created the first portal in my 'base', and the second one very far away from it. For the first one, a portal appeared in the Nether, but not for the second one. For some reason, the second one led to the same portal as the first one. Seems like no new portal was created in the Nether.

    Just make a god damned portal in the nether yourself. It'll link to the closest portal in the nether so just make and activate one.

    posted a message on Easy way to travel up high quickly
    What I would suggest instead of using the search function when posting about something, look it up in the wiki. It's a lot easier and you are going to more quickly find whether something is common knowledge or not.
    For example you are going to post about boats making you rise quickly right?
    Just do a quick check of http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Boat
    On this page you can see
    Due to a bug, a Boat will rocket vertically when it hits a waterfall. This can be used to the player's advantage, such as by using the elevator to reach a high place that mobs cannot. A video demonstration of this bug can be seen here

    which would tell you that people are already aware of this happening.

    Does minecraft support input from those devices?
    I ask because I really hate using WASD


    What's wrong with WASD?

    Not directly, but most of them come with software to remap them to keys.

    I find it very uncomfortable

    No, actually... He did luck out. He built the portal in a spot where it was actually safe in the nether. So it didn't have to move the portal to find a safe area. Therefor, when he teleported back it didn't make a new portal to accommodate the safe area in the nether.


    Not true. This has since been fixed with the mentioned update.


    It has not been fixed. I have built three portals in the same world, they all link to the same portal in the nether and i only go out into the first portal I made.

    Just because you don't have problems doesn't mean that it's working perfectly

    Hence why i posted on page 4 of this thread viewtopic.php?f=1016&t=71970&start=90

    Granted, no new unbuilt portals spawn now from what i have seen, but there are still problems with portals and the Nether.
    I have explained what he has done to "fix" it. When you first teleport into a nether portal the real world portal you teleported from becomes the the portal you will always be teleported back to. If other portals teleport you to that same portal in the nether that portal will still link back to the first one when you use that portal. At the moment the best procedure is to create a portal in the nether in the direction of the portal in the real world that you want to erect and activate it, then go back to the real world via the same portal you entered from. Then build the portal in the real world where you want it and when you activate and enter it it should link to the portal you made in the nether.

    Portals in the nether now automatically link back to the FIRST portal that teleported you to that portal. I think this can be reset via ghasts/tnt turning the nether portal off though

    posted a message on Portal "Fix" is worse then before
    I wouldn't mind portals spawning in a lava lake or inside netherstone(with it replacing the blocks it spawns on obviously).
    If the first happens you would then know to just build it either higher up or lower. Just test the portal out with an empty inventory the first time you go through it. If the second happens you can just dig your way out. This whole "needs to spawn in a safe location" thing is fairly unnecessary and causes worse problems than occasionally having a lava lake portal in my opinion and I hope Notch comes to that same conclusion.

    Heck I made my shelter out of netherstone. All you need is for them to not see you so even fragile material can work.

    Ghasts will fire at you through walls even if they haven't seen you, I've had them blow through a wall I hadn't even been on the other side of.

    Uranium isn't a bad idea, because correct me if im wrong, but uranium rods emit a faint glow do they not?

    They emit a lot of radiation and yeah some of it is in the visible spectrum.
