How to Make a Portal to the Nether
To make a Nether portal, you will need the following:
1. Diamond Pickaxe
2. Iron Ingot
Use the Diamond pickaxe to mine 16 blocks of Obsidian. (Note this may take a little bit of time since Obsidian is very durable)
Place the 16 Obsidian blocks in a STANDING rectangle shape that is 4 blocks wide and 5 blocks tall.
Now that you have your standing, empty rectangle of Obsidian blocks, craft the Iron Ingot you have with the piece of flint you have as well and make Flint and Steel.
And finally, ignite the inside of your Obsidian rectangle with your Flint and Steel and wollah! You have a Nether Portal and the Nether Portal achievement. To go to the Nether, you must stand inside the rectangle for atleast 5 to 7 seconds.
Please Rate. I hope you enjoy your new portal.
