Nether Hub & Setting Up Nether Portal
On all Multiplayer Minecraft Servers you will need to learn these simple steps. Nether Portals are often easily accidentally connected with other players' portals. This can cause panic, headaches, and a lot of lost time. To avoid this, you need simply follow these steps to properly set up your portal.
All portals need to follow these steps. If your portal is not set up properly it will be destroyed by staff.
Step One: Build a Portal
- Build your portal in the Overworld
- Light it with flint & steel
- DO NOT walk into the portal
- Make sure no other mobs can walk into the portal
You should not go into the portal because it will generate "naturally" on the Nether side. This is what we want to avoid happening.
Step Two: Write Down Your Overworld Coords
You can use the command /getpos and write down your X, Y, and Z coordinates. The most important coords you will need are the X & Z.
Step Three: Go to Spawn & Into the Nether Hub
Navigate to the train station and go into the Nether Hub. You need to decide white Nether Room (NESW Rooms) is the closest to your Overworld Portal. Do not connect your tunnel to the public nether exit, that is not considered a personal station.
Step Four: Calculate your Nether Coords
Locations in the Nether correlate to Overworld coordinates, but horizontal Overworld distances are scaled down by a ration of 8:1 for travel in the Nether. Therefore, traveling one block in the Nether means traveling eight blocks in the Overworld.
Therefore, you need to convert your step one coords into Nether coords by visiting this website and plugging the coords into the Overworld section.
Once you have your Nether Coords, this is where you're going to tunnel to in the Nether to build your Nether Side Portal.
Step Five: Dig to the Coords & Make a Portal
Make a tunnel to the Nether Coords and then build another portal. Light your portal and walk through!
If you did this correctly, you should be at your Overworld Portal once more!
