AotBT Single player Nether Portals fail to ignite

Recommended Posts

I've been playing AotBT for awhile and it's chock full of delicious fun...but I can't get nether portals to ignite. I have tried:

 

  • building normal portals (fail)
  • building enhanced portals (by cheating. fail)
  • resetting the mod pack (fail)
  • starting a new world just to get a working nether portal (fail)
  • deleting every version of meta.inf in any related .jar I can find (fail)
  • pulling my hair out (ow. fail)

So far? Luck is not mine. Is it AotBT? Is it something to do with MC 1.6.4 I am overlooking? Where should I be looking to find the solution to this problem?

 

Any ideas/help/solutions/guidance/emotional support is appreciated.

 

thx.

Are you sure you built the correct shape of a portal?

and btw there are 2 kinds of flint and steel are you sure you used the right one? (normal one for normal portals)

Because maybe you built it wrong or used the wrong tool idk.

and i think that chiseled obsidian doesnt work with portals.(it might not be right)

 

Thats all i got in mind. Maybe try the steps again (that you wrote in your post, even the "putting my hair off"! :P might work like magic)

For the first, non-enhanced portal I built (horizontal x vertical):

 

  • 5x5

  • 5x6

  • 6x5
  • 4x5

and then I tried those and other configurations using the portal modifier and controller blocks.  I tried both flint & steel variations on all types. Sigh.

 

As to Obsidian type, the Chisel mod replaces vanilla MC Block 49 with its own variant obsidian--does that mean that obsidian won't work? I don't think that can be right.

 

I'm going to try some other portal shape variations. I'll probably leave what little hair I have alone, though.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

This shape isn't working with a normal flint and steel?  It still should with most types of obsidian (not sure about snakebody/snakehead as they're a little special I'd have to test, but the rest should be fine).

██ = Obsidian Block
░░ = Air
▓▓ = The Ground

   <- - 4B- ->
░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░
░░ ██ ██ ██ ██ ░░ ^
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ |
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ 5B
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ |
░░ ██ ██ ██ ██ ░░ v
▓▓ ▓▓ ▓▓ ▓▓ ▓▓ ▓▓

If you're using an enhanced portal then any shape is fine but it's not for visiting places for the first time - you need dimensional upgrades on every portal and a network set the same on both ends (so you need the other end to exist first) before you can make them, and you need a special flint and steel (its the yellowish version).

 

Do you have a picture?

Doh! That worked.

 

I had been making the portal too big, apparently, and had been building it on a "stand". I started MC in 1.7x, which is more forgiving when it comes to Nether Portal design, I guess.

 

Here's what screwed me up, I think:

O=Obsidian

S=Stone

G=Ground

                           OOOOO

                           O        O

                           O        O

                           O        O

                           OOOOO

                              SSS

                    GGGGGGGGGG

 

Thanks!

Ha, yeah - it's been modified to be a lot more tolerant of shape now, so that'll be it.

 

There is a little leeway and you can have it on a stand, the only blocks that are actually important are these obsidian blocks, I just wanted to make sure you had the shape right first;

██ = Obsidian Block
░░ = Air
▓▓ = The Ground (not featured in this diagram)

   <- - 4B- ->
░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░
░░ ░░ ██ ██ ░░ ░░ ^
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ |
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ 5B
░░ ██ ░░ ░░ ██ ░░ |
░░ ░░ ██ ██ ░░ ░░ v
░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░ ░░

Glad you got it sorted :)
