So here's what's going on.
I'm going to be calling my portal at home HP (Home portal) for short, and the portal that takes me back to the overworld NP (Nether portal)
Today I was testing out the HP I just built to see what part of the nether it would take me to, and it all checks out pretty good. When I stepped through the NP to take me back to the overworld it took me to the other side of the island I was building on instead of taking me back to HP. (I will call this other portal OP) I destroyed the OP and went back home to enter the HP again to see if it would happen again. Going through the NP back to the overworld, I was spawned in the exact same spot the OP was located in and it spawned the OP again. So truly I have two questions;
- why is this happening?
- how can I make the NP take me back to the HP instead of the OP?
Additional information that may or may not be of use:
- I play bedrock on a PS5
- no additional portals were ever build in the nether, only the one NP
- HP is located in a room I made inside a mountain, a fair distance above what I'd call "ground level"
