    posted a message on Random Portals Spawning Returning from Nether
    Hello, I tried to use the search function but it says, "Sorry but the search system is temporarily disabled. Please search via google." I apologize if this is a duplicate question but I couldn't find quite the right answer I was looking for via google.

    I made my first nether portal a few days ago. When I returned to the normal world, I found myself in a portal with a dungeon next door instead. I heard before about how portals spawn sometimes randomly in the normal world and thought have just been there all along. Second time to the nether I returned to the normal world finding myself in a cavern. I dug myself up realized I was quite close to wear I emerged last time. I built a little base over where the portals had spawned. Tonight I went to destroy the newest portal. Tried my main portal to the nether and I emerged in the same cavern just maybe 15 meters from where the second random portal had been. I certainly didn't remember seeing it but I thought there was a chance I somehow missed it. I tried one more time to enter the normal side portal I built and this time I came out in my newest base. Now I know that one wasn't there before.

    I'm starting to think I'm fighting a losing war of just tearing nether portals down. Is there any way at all i can just use the original portal I made as both an entry and return point? I've heard that a new portal can spawn if one dies in the nether but I haven't as of yet. I also made a second portal at my original base a very long ways a way and it connects to the same place in the nether. I know that the space is much more condensed in the nether but this is about a whole morning's trip from one nether portal to the other in the normal world. Thank you in advance for any advice or thoughts.

    Y'know, you could've just get in the portal you ended up in after you left, then re-entered the portal in the Nether and it should take you back to the original one.


    I don't know why I didn't think to try that. I guess I figured it would keep spitting me out in the same place. Thanks for the tip!

    I'd been playing minecraft for a little while now but never ventured into the nether until today. I built my portal and eagerly took those first steps into the unknown to emerge into a small cavern looking area with a few blocks of glowstone nearby. I decided I should take my treasure straight home before something might happen....

    I appeared not at the portal I built on a tiny peninsula but deep down in some other place. A lavafall, a few blocks of diamond in the wall, and the moans of zombies greeted me. I was somewhere deep down beneath the earth next to a dungeon. I decided to make use of the opportunity before and looted every piece of mossy cobblestone and the contents of the chest there before making my ascent to the surface. Of course I didn't anticipate needing multiple pickaxes and well before I was even halfway to the surface I had to start digging stone by hand. It was the first time I ever felt so excited seeing that little line of grass visible from a side profile of the dirt block. The only problem then was I also hadn't anticipated needing a compass... The terrain around me was completely unfamiliar. I wasn't certain which direction to go. I wandered across a desert to a large body of water. Nothing I knew. I was perplexed though that there was a great shadow over a portion of the water. Not completely black like that one bug I'd seen with solid blocks before. No, this was like some great land mass was hovering over invisible to the eye but casting a shadow all the same. Regardless, this didn't seem like the right direction. I turned back and soon found the spot where I surfaced. I crossed a couple heavily forested hills and then saw the bridge to the little peninsula my adventure first began at.

    I'm thinking I can head back and destroy that deep underground portal and loot those diamonds. That should hopefully redirect me to the correct place next time I decide to leave the nether. I'd also like to find an answer on that shadowy water sometime.

    Anyway, I'd like to know if anyone else has had some interesting first trips into the nether.

    posted a message on Poor Cuddles the Slime
    So I found slimes for the first time today deep down in a cavern by lava falls and pools: one tiny one, two a bit larger, and one really big one. I was wanting some lava and so I killed all but the littlest. Later I got this idea to get the bouncing little ball of slime joy to follow me all the way up to my fortress. I got Cuddles about half way out of the cavern (it connects to my base) when sadly "he" disappeared. Not sure if Cuddles fell or if he just couldn't make the trip up that high without despawning. Perhaps the lesson is that slimes need to bounce free in their own natural habitat.

    Nope, they don't attack. But definitely be careful when building underwater that they don't block a breathing hole.

    posted a message on No Squid?
    The advice that helped me most was to watch for the tentacle movement. My second of two worlds is mostly covered with water. My main base is built out in the water and it surprised me how long it took me to first see them as well. This is also the world where I had death by squid. Busy building an underwater tunnel to a future sub-base and had a squid block my air hole. >< Because it kept getting stuck I made a "tank" for it with a glass bridge covering the gap. There's still a squid every time I pass by. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be the same one or because of the depth and source blocks a new one spawns often?

    posted a message on i find easy too hard
    I'm a torchaholic. In my first world I usually have to go out a way to even see an enemy anymore. My advice to people having problem starting out is like what others mentioned: multiple exits, at least a second story for a better view of the surroundings, a trench or a wall (I prefer walls for aesthetic reasons). I love having lots of windows to see out of. I started a new world recently and I ended up building on an island in the middle of what seems to be a very giant lake or a small sea. My building is well lit and I'm far enough from other land that I don't get any monsters swimming up to the one entrance. It's a peaceful short commute by boat to the mine. The only downfall I can find of building out in the water is having to go out for stuff. If anyone does this keeping an extra boat on you in case your boat breaks is a good idea.

    posted a message on The Search For Something Rare... BEGINS!! - Found
    I've been wondering if it might be some sort of rare drop or something along those lines. Another thought of mine is maybe it being connected to the egg tossing. Chickens sometime hatch so what if something rarer could hatch? It's probably a very silly thought of mine considering that you see the chickens lay them though.

    posted a message on How Big Is Your World?
    I was wondering how big others let their worlds get? I'm still very new myself. My world is currently 17.22 MB. I've been trying to hold off from exploring a bit since I've worried that it might be hard to get some new introduced items in the future. Is it a legitimate fear? Any other concerns at larger file sizes? I'm not even really sure what's big and what's small. And again I'm also just curious how far others travel.

    posted a message on Egg throwing sometimes spawning chickens
    I decided to try out the egg tossing on a pig and found that every now and then a sound is made as a new chicken appears. I'm trying to decide if I want to play around and use the rest of my eggs to see if anything else can happen.

    posted a message on New Ocean Mob Idea
    It looks like a kappa to me.

    It's a Japanese freshwater demon that's often child sized, green, has a turtle shell, and a depression on it's head that stores water. There's been many different depictions like many mythological creatures including the modern cute versions that often have yellow duckbills. If it bows and the water from it's head escapes, it can die.

    Don't add the fail 'MMORPG Pet System' into minecraft. If you do, I will die.


    it doesn't have to be that in depth. but beast mastery has been an important part of human history since like forever. we wouldn't have half the technology that we do now if it hadn't of started there. its only natural for this game to take a couple steps in that direction.


    Dogs for hunting, protection and herding. Cats for controlling plague and rodents. Horses, camels, mules, oxen and even elephants for riding and pulling supplies. Goats, cows and camels for milk. Sheep and llama for clothing. Pigeons for delivering messages. So many more animals have played their part. Of course I would say agriculture was the most important invention for humanity. But a steady supply of animals from animal husbandry was certainly very important as well. But anyway, I don't want to stray from the topic too much which I think I probably did.

    I am all for having animals specific to biomes added. I'd actually been meaning to make a post about it. I don't know about penguins dropping fish though. For them to drop a fish wouldn't they have to regurgitate it? Even if it's virtual, I just don't think so. Pet could be cute but I don't think every animal would have to have a use. Maybe there can be something just to add to the environment?
