The SMP server I play on just updated to Minecraft 1.6.6. We were all really excited about the Nether.

However no matter how many portals we make, when you leave the Nether and comeback to the real world, you end my house (my safe of all places). These portals are not close to each other, but they still connect.

It has become so common for people to exit through my house that I had to give directions.

How can we fix this?

    Does it run Bukkit or is it a vanilla install? If Bukkit, which build # is it running?

  • @Thomas: It does run Bukkit, I'm not sure what build. I'll check with my admin.

  • @Thomas: It runs Craftbukkit version git-Bukkit-0.0.0-823-gb9d0b04-b860jnks (MC: 1.66) if that makes any sense.

    You can fix that easy. It's "you're", not "your".

Most likely you need to take the time to properly align the portals in both worlds. It takes some effort, but if you exactly align your portals everything seems to work correctly on the SMP server I regularly play on.

From the Minecraft wiki.

To setup pairs of portals properly so that they reliably travel to each other, it is best to build both portals manually. Build at desired location X,Y,Z in the Normal World. Then travel to the Nether World. And then dig your way to X/8, Y, Z/8, and build a portal there.
