obsidian permit!
« on: 2014 03 30, 15:52:43 »
i want 2 stacks of obsidian from inside of an end pillar for future nether portals and enderchests. i can replace the doorway with obsidian when i go out for it to look the same, or we could hollow it out and make it pretty and everything, but for now i am will replace the door way so everything is the same except for inside

I think it would be better to just gather some lava in the nether or deep underground and make obsidian from that. If you pour water over lava and dig in from the sides you can get most of the obsidian relatively fast and safely. Could that work instead?

i guess i could take it from the nether, but that takes longer as i have to make buckets and take from lava spot and then go to overworld and then place in mold and then pour water and then start mining.

Water works in the nether now correct?
But yes, in the nether lava flows fast so you probably can't just use the method I suggested. I do that in underground lava rivers in the overworld.

If you want to hollow out the obsidian pillars, I'm ok with it.
