How to create a Nether portal in Minecraft

The Nether is the infernal dimension of Minecraft characterized by a desert biome, dark and with rivers of magma. There are only aggressive creatures, whose sole purpose is to give the player a hard time.

This dimension is useful for the player, as it is possible to obtain unique resources, otherwise impossible to find in the world of Minecraft. To deal with it, however, it is necessary to equip yourself well with armor, weapons and food to heal.

To access this dimension you need to create the Nether portal: the latter is built using obsidian blocks, which are obtained by cooling the magma by means of water. The obsidian thus obtained must then be collected using a diamond pickaxe.

The arrangement of the obsidian blocks for the Nether portal reaction is as follows: Place four obsidian blocks on the ground. Once this is done, starting from the ends, raise the portal structure with three obsidian blocks on each side and then close the frame, placing a horizontal line with four other obsidian units over it.

If you have followed the procedure that I have indicated in the previous lines to the letter, you will have built the Nether portal, which you will have to activate, however, to access the dimension to which it is connected. To do this, use a flintlock, which you will need to trigger on the obsidian frame, in order to activate the internal area of ​​the portal. Position yourself inside it, to travel to the Nether and start this new challenge.

If you want to know more about the Nether and how to build the gateway to it, I suggest you read my guide on how to make the Nether portal.

How to create an End portal on Minecraft

The End is a dimension of Minecraft that represents a challenge for the player with a considerable degree of difficulty. This dimension, in fact, consists of an island suspended in the void protected by a dragon.

Defeating the dragon allows you to access the numerous distant islands arranged in a circle around the central one, in which there is the City of the End, a place full of treasures, including the Elitre, a set of wings to fly on Minecraft.

To access this dimension, it is necessary to activate the portal of the End, using the Eyes of Ender, which are obtained from the processing of the Ender Pearls and the Dust of Blaze.

The Pearl of Ender is obtained by defeating an Enderman or as a treasure present in the trunks of the Mansion or underground Fortresses; you can also exchange them for emeralds at a healing NPC in villages.

The Dust of Blaze, on the other hand, is a material derived from the Rod of Blaze: the latter can be found by defeating the Blaze creatures found in the Nether.

In Survival mode, the portal cannot be built, but it can be found inside the underground Fortresses. I have explained to you how to find one in this guide of mine. In the Creative mode, however, it is possible to build the portal: now I’ll explain how.

To build an End Portal, you need the End Portal Frame blocks, which you can find by typing the term frame, in the text box found on the Inventory Search tab. You will need to use 12 units of these blocks, arranging them in a 5 × 5 area. Then place three of these blocks on each side, without placing any at the corners.

I recommend that you build by placing your avatar in the center of the area, as the blocks must be placed all facing the center. Then rotate the camera by placing the blocks around you, in the way I explained to you in the lines above.

Once this is done, to activate the portal, place the Eyes of Ender on each frame block of the End portal. When you have placed the last item, the portal will open, showing you a dark-colored area inside it: you simply have to jump into it and wait a few moments to be teleported to the End.

How to create a portal to Heaven in Minecraft

On Minecraft, through the use of a specific mod, it is possible to access a new dimension, called Paradise or Aether. The mod in question, called The Aether II, can be downloaded for free from the portal, in the Minecraft section. Then reach the link I just provided and press the Download latest file button, to download the JAR  file of the mod.

Now that you’ve downloaded the Minecraft mod, you’ll need to enable it in-game through Minecraft Forge, a free third-party add-on content management tool. Then reach its official website and press the Windows Installer button to download the EXE file, or use the side section to download the version of  Minecraft Forge compatible with your version of Minecraft.

Currently, The Aether II mod is compatible with Minecraft Forge for Minecraft version 1.12.2. However, I recommend that you visit the download page of the mod on CurseForge and check the game version with which it is compatible, by viewing the number indicated in the Game version column.

Now that you’ve downloaded the file .exe of Minecraft Forge, double-click on it and press OK to install. Once this is done, go to C: \ Users \ [name] \ AppData \ Roaming \ .minecraft with Windows File Explorer and access the mods folder. If you don’t find it, create it manually.

At this point, all you have to do is place the previously downloaded JAR file inside the mods folder. We’re almost there: start Minecraft, press the ▲ icon located next to the Play button  and choose the Forge profile. Then hit the Play button to start Minecraft with mod support.

If you have followed the procedures indicated in the previous paragraphs to the letter, you will be able to play The Aether II mod, accessing the dimension of Paradise. To create the gateway, you’ll need to use a workbench, placing four stone blocks and four units of iron ingots. Doing so will create an object called Aether Portal.

What you need to do is equip this item on a quick slot and place it on the ground. Once this is done, interact on it to be teleported inside a castle, in which there will be a portal to access the dimension of Heaven.

This new dimension is a world unto itself, with unique creatures and new items and resources. It represents an additional challenge to the classic world of Minecraft, through which it is possible to embark on new adventures.

How to create a portal in Minecraft

In Minecraft you can only create the Nether portal and the one for the End. It is not possible to create other portals, if not thanks to the use of mods. I remind you that to install one you will have to use, in most cases, Minecraft Forge. Mods can be searched through the database, in the Minecraft section.

Among the mods available for Minecraft, one of those that allow you to create teleportation portals from one place to another is Portal Room. After installing the mod in question, following the same procedure that I indicated in this chapter of the tutorial, start Minecraft and create a new game world.

Done that. to build a portal, you must first create the Teleportation Stick, a magic wand that lets you convert any block in a teleportation portal to the portals Room ( Portal Room ). To create this wand, via a workbench, use an obsidian unit, an Ender pearl and a diamond.

At this point, equip your wand and, to convert a block into a portal, right-click on the block while holding down the Shift key on your keyboard. After performing this action, release the Shift key and interact with the right mouse button on the block.

You will be immediately transported to a new dimension called the Portal Room, where all the portals you create from time to time will be present. The more portals you create, the bigger this room will get. To return to the world of Minecraft, you will need to interact on one of the blocks in the room.
