Working Nether Reactor!

Before the time the nether portal introduced in 0.12.0 and even before Pocket Edition becoming Bedrock, there was only one way that allowed you to obtain nether resources and other miscellaneous items; a Nether Reactor. It’s been over 3 years since we’d see any sign of it until today.

When entering the world, you’ll be greeted to a box filled with command block contraptions. When pressing the button on the box, you will retrieve the necessary items to create the nether reactor core.

With the diamond and iron, you can throw them both down onto the floor and create a Nether Reactor Core. 

With this Nether Reactor Core, you’d be able to create the Nether Reactor that looks like this

To activate it, simply go right up against it, look directly at the yellow in the Nether Reactor Core and [Mobile] Tap it [Win 10] right click it to activate it. Just like the real thing, it spawns items such as glowstone and quartz while challenging you with a horde of pigmen.

This lasts for 45 seconds before deactivating and setting the time to night, just like the real thing.

When going outside, you can see the nether spire isn’t looking so “spirally” per say. I will probably update it later on to make it more accurate to the actual thing if I have enough time but the functionalities of the actual Nether Reactor works.

If you see anything wrong, don’t hesitate to let me know through twitter @sir_catto

    What do I do? I tried doing this yesterday and it doesnโ€™t work I really wanna do the nether reactor core one last time what should I do? Please help

  8. Ender_Playz says:

    Why is there no mediafire download?!?!

  9. Djani69 says:

    Please help this is not working anymore for me. It used to work perfectly for me, but now it just doesn’t. I can craft and built exactly right, but no matter how much I click, how straight at it I look, it just doesn’t wanna start. I am (I think) a good distance away from the machine so that it stays loaded and doesn’t get destroyed. I am on 1.11.4 btw and before you ask, your End Reactor works perfectly for me. What is going on? Did updating the game break it? I’m gonna give 3 stars because of this problem, but if it started working again, I’d gladly increase my rating.

    • Sir Chaton says:

      You said it was a good distance away to not break it so im going to assume you were over 60 blocks away from the contraption which caused it to unload. That though is my bad for not adding a ticking area at the contraption but it will be updated to be more compact, accurate, and hopefully more flexible.

    I’d say you need tocheck out the old reaxtor a bit more…if i remember correctly back in my day the core produced an overflow of obsidian….

  11. pifase says:

    It doesn’t work. ๐Ÿ™

  12. Joseph says:

    What? How did you get nether reactor and obsidian into the inventory? Like how is it in the creative tools like I search it up itโ€™s there but I do it on my world but it doesnโ€™t work

    • Sir Chaton says:

      I put a glowing obsidian texture on obsidian and I put the nether reactor core texture on redstone ore so it isnt the real thing but its a very close recreation of it

  13. MCPE Beta 1.12 says:

    This Nether Reactor Map is still in work in progress! Hopefully Version 2 is next

    • Sir Chaton says:

      Yes it still is a work in progress. In the future (dont know how soon or far in the future) I will update it to resemble the actual nether spire and have the pigmen use similar behaviors as in the past

    Can you please make it work on Pocket edition pleaseeeeee

  21. MultiRautix says:

    Just a small note for the creator, the nether reactors were removed in the alpha for 0.12.0 for the Windows 10 version, but for the mainstream, or the pocket edition, it was removed in 0.12.1, as 0.12.0 was never released farther than the beta for the pocket versions.

    I remember this I missed it really Thank you

  23. Anonymous says:

    I think its better if this was a addon instead of a world. Anyways, this was a good redstone work๐Ÿ‘

    • Sir Chaton says:

      I would of prefered it to be an addon too but detection wouldnt work as well without a proper set up :\ hopefully in the future when commands get more advanced it might become a full function pack ๐Ÿ˜€
