I've installed the Miner's Heaven mod for Minecraft 1.7.2 (Forge). Finally, after
methodically exploring every dungeon in the game cheating one in after methodically exploring every dungeon I could find, I managed to get my hands on a portal igniter. I placed my diamond block, lit it up and boom, I had a portal.
Stepping through the portal, no matter where in the overworld I place one, results in me landing directly in cobblestone and suffocating. I tried a hundred blocks away from where I first placed it, then a few hundred blocks away, then a few thousand blocks away, and then as far as the far lands. I keep going straight to Miner's Heaven, literally.
On me, I had:
So I tried alternating / dropping what was in my inventory (the telepebble saved me from death until the last try, when I went in my birthday suit).
Attempts to mine my way out of wherever it sent me weren't successful. It's like I was sent into the middle of a very big rock.
Is this a known glitch? Punishment for bringing in an igniter from creative mode so I could test my mod pack? Are certain things in inventory supposed to cause weird behavior (e.g. the crystal dimension removed all your stuff).
I've run out of things to try, what else can I do to get this mod to work like it's (apparently) working for everyone else?
