Ok, so we want to make something with Ender Pearls.
They're droppped by Endermen, right? So, what do Endermen do exactly?
1.They are peaceful, but aggressive when looked at directly.
2.They can pick up blocks.
3.They can teleport.
Now, we need to think of the most interesting fact about them. Number 3, of course. So, we want some kind of teleportation device. Here's what I came up with:
Blank, Iron Ignot x3, Blank,
Obsidian x3, Redstone Dust x15, Obsidian x3,
Blank, Iron Ignot x3, Blank.
Screen shots coming soon, by the way. Sorry.
Now, we have a 1/4 iron block base, portal blocks on top (1 1/2), and another iron block base (2 blocks tall).
"Huh? There are no Ender Pearls to do with this, what?"
"wait a little longer."
Ender Port Engine
So, we need something to power the Ender Port. When the Ender Port is out of fuel, it is just 2 iron block bases, top and bottom.
Iron Ignot, Blank, Iron Ignot,
Iron Ignot, Redstone Dust x3, Iron Ignot,
Gold Ignot, Gold Ignot, Gold Ignot.
Now, we have something to fuel the Ender Port. You can place it right next to the Ender Port, or connect to it with Redstone Wires. Anyway, when you place the Ender Port Engine, right click it, and there's a screen displayed. Kind of like a furnace, But with fire on top, an empty space on the bottom, and a bar going up and down to the right of that. Obviously, but a Ender Pearl in the empty space, and the meter fills up with black liquid. It runs out in 25 minutes, so each Ender Pearl lasts 25 minutes. So, the Ender Port is up and running!
"So you build another one, and teleport from one to another?"
"Nope. Keep listening."
Meh, you're probably getting bored, so i'll explain this faster.
Blank, Iron Ignot, Blank,
Iron Ignot, Ender Pearl x5, Iron Ignot,
Blank, Iron Ignot, Blank.
So, you have a little capsule, like the one from Dragon Ball Z. Except, the logo is a little swirly circular portal thing. When used, you teleport to the nearest Ender Port within 435 blocks. The Ender Capsule is now empty (The swirly thing is plain black now). How do you refuel it? You can make another one, or craft something like this-
Blank, Ender Pearl x5,
Blank, Ender Capsule.
There you go. Possibly the best Ender Pearl idea! I would love suggestions, and to keep this thread alive.
I thought it would make more sense for the ender pearls to teleport you to a block you're pointing at when you right click with it. I don't mean an extremely long distance. Maybe just 20-30 block max in case a creeper decides to sneak up on you. Makes a bit more sense cause endermen can teleport
