How to Make a Ender Portal

DemoTech, one of our demo tool vendors, provides a demo-building tool referred to as a “portal”. I want to show you how you can use this tool to create your own large-scale demos rather than settle for the static, traditional demos that DemoTech offers.


In Creative mode, the player can construct an end portal by placing 12 end portal blocks in a ring enclosing an open 3×3 square and placing an eye of ender in each one. In order to activate, the end portal frames must be oriented correctly; the front face of each portal must be pointed inward toward the 3×3 portal area. This can be achieved by the player standing in the center of the portal area and rotating to place the frames in a ring around them.

End portals are found within the portal room of a stronghold, hanging horizontally over a pool of lava, with a staircase leading up to the portal. A silverfish spawner sits in the staircase. Each individual end portal frame block has a 10% chance of containing an eye of ender, as determined by the world seed. This means there is a one in 1 trillion chance for all 12 end portal frames to contain an eye of ender, activating the portal upon initial generation. The frame has the highest probability of generating with only one eye of ender (37.7%), with probabilities dropping to 28.2% for zero, 23.0% for two, 8.52% for three, 2.13% for four, and a total of 0.433% for five or more. Because of the massive amount of possible seeds, over 8 million seeds in Java Edition that generate portals with 12 eyes of ender are known. (Source: minecraft.fandom.com)


Activating the end portal destroys any blocks located in the center 3×3 square, including bedrock or another end portal frame. It destroys fluids, although if the source block is not also removed, then it immediately flows back through. If an end portal is generated on a spawner, the fire particles remain. The destruction of the blocks does not make any sound, and applicable blocks do not drop as resources (except for the top part of a door and the extended part of a vertical piston, which both destroy the whole object and drop them as resources). Events sometimes triggered by block destruction fail to occur; TNT simply disappears without detonating, and infested blocks fail to spawn a silverfish. However, containers still drop their contents. Mobs (except for the wither and ender dragon) enter the portal similarly to the player. If the player rides a minecart into an active end portal, the player enters the End only after exiting the minecart.

The first thing you need to do is create the frame for the End Portal from 12 end portal frames. Add three end portal frames to build one side of the portal and turn to the right side to add three additional end portal frames for the other side of the portal. Also make sure that the tabs in green which you find on top of end portal frames are facing the inside portion of the portal. (Source: www.republicworld.com)
