A Nether Portal is a type of portal that spawns in another dimension. In the Overworld, a portal spawns in an area roughly equivalent to its coordinates, while in the Nether, it spawns in an area roughly eight times larger. The dimensions of the two worlds are different, and terrain can affect where a portal spawns.
The first step to making a Nether portal is to gather materials. First, you will need lava and water. Lava will turn into obsidian after a few minutes. If you don’t have either of these two materials, you can use lava to create one.
Once you have obsidian and some flint, you can begin mining. First, gather about 10 or 14 obsidian blocks and fill in the space in the middle. Be careful not to fill in the corners with obsidian or you will have a nether portal that is too small for you. Afterward, use a diamond pickaxe to mine the obsidian. Once you have collected enough, it’s time to light the obsidian portal with Flint and Steel. The portal is best if it’s four blocks wide and five blocks tall, although larger portals are possible.
To light your Nether Portal, you must have a fire starter. You can use an iron ingot or a flint if you have a good enough supply of it. You’ll also need a pickaxe to mine cobblestone. It’s better to use iron than diamond for this because it’s less flammable.
Once you’ve gathered your materials, it’s time to craft your Nether Portal. This process can vary from world seed to world seed. After crafting the Nether Portal, make sure you prepare weapons and food for the Nether. Once the portal is ready, you’ll be able to enter the Nether world.
To create a Nether Portal, you’ll need iron or steel ingots. These are the most durable blocks, and are able to withstand the most punishment. You can also make an obsidian portal by combining flint with steel. When you place these two materials in a diagonal formation, they will glow purple when activated. This portal will be able to teleport you to the Nether in four seconds on average. You can also abort the teleportation process by stepping out of the portal. When this process is completed, a return portal will be created in the Nether where you originally entered.
You can build a Nether Portal in a few ways. One of them involves mining obsidian. This element is one of the hardest to break, and a diamond pickaxe is the only way to break it. However, there are shortcuts to obtain the obsidian.
Fire is also a common source to light Nether Portals. You can light them with a fire by placing flammable blocks in front of them. Fireballs from Ghasts and Blazes can also light up the portal.
