  1. So I am currently on a boat, going towards a distant continent. And I came across this...thing. I saw no other buildings or signs of life. Any ideas on why this was there?

  2. New 1.3 chunk? In 1.3 there are randomely spawning nether portals.

  3. When people build a portal in the Nether, they have to come out somewhere in the Wilderness.
  4. This was in the pre-loaded area, so it is 1.2.5.
  5. Someone build it, and removed all evidence of other buildings but that portal.
  6. I built that JK

  7. Nope, someone simply built a portal in the nether, and MC saw there was an ocean where it needed to place the portal so it makes it hovering in the air.

    MC essentially makes a 18 obsidian block nether portal if its floating in the air.
