Had the same problem just now, though on an iPad. I died and came back floating in space, with nothing but stars around. I saw a smudge of something while looking around and decided to try to move towards it. Turns out it was the ground and I had spawned way above it. When I splattered I spawned again with the same result. It looked like the usual spawn point, just way too high. Falling time was maybe three minutes.
Did a bit of testing with a new world to see if the problem was repeatable. It was, but not always. I respawned as usual the first time, but when I tried again I spawned way up high. Third time was normal again, which prompted me to try my original world. On entering I spawned more or less on my bed, which is not the usual spawn point, but otherwise as normal. I even found my stuff from where I originally died...and as killed again while collecting it. this latest time I spawned way up high again. Waiting to hit the ground so I can try (again) to collect my stuff.
TL;DR is you occasionally spawn high above the world.
Having..."tested" another time or three, some sort of input is required. Mostly I've been facing down and "moving forward." Sometimes I'll spin the camera while doing so. Whatever the required input clouds will eventually appear and then gravity takes over.
So completely without intending too, I left my phone on running Minecraft... when I came back to it my guy was on the ground dead. Yeahhhh! (Weird to be wanting this). After I respawned, I was at my usual spawn point. So I guess just leave it on and wait for the poor guy to fall like Bonmorane said, it could be a long fall.
Can someone help me! So I drowned and now when I try to respawn , after i click respawn it freezes. I tried leaving my ipad on for like about an hour, nothing happened.does anyone have a simlilar issue? The picture shows after i clicked respawn it freezes.
It's a terrible release. After running for a few hours, suddenly every time I turned my character the thing would just freeze and crash to the ipad desktop. I had to recreate the world. Then when I died, I ended up in the clouds every respawn. This needs to be fixed quickly.
Minecraft Pocket Edition - Kindle Fire HDX - Survival Mode - I am building a 5 story "house" on top of a mountain. While I was out gathering goodies for more building, I died, respawned and rather than being in my bed (previously used), I am now up in the air. I am not falling falling and therefore can not wait to die for a new respawn. My husband did come into my world and for him everything looked fine, although all my gear that I was carrying is now gone as I could not go back and get it. I do not want to start all over. Is there a stuck command or a respawn command that can free my character?
KILL MYSELF HOW? I am in limbo in the sky. I am not falling. I am standing in the air- so high that I cannot see the ground. There are no monsters in the air. Is there a suicide method? I have nothing in my inventory, as I died, So, HOW can I kill myself to respawn in my bed. I am not falling so waiting DID NOTHING. I HAVE TRIED THAT.
I have even tried to switch files, as well as uninstall reinstall. At this point, I think I am going to have to find a zlib program to try and reset the value to default myself.
I have also tried switching files , uninstalling and reinstalling, next step is to try and find a zlib program to try and change the location of my alt back to default.
Although it may not look like you are falling... you are. It didn't look like I was falling either. It may take a very long time for you to come down but just let it sit there and disable locking on your device so it stays on. Eventually you will come down.
