Are you using nether portals a lot in your Minecraft world? This tool will help you with placing your nether portals in the correct places so that they correctly link. This Nether Calculator for Minecraft will convert Overworld coördinates to their corresponding Nether coordinates. This is done by dividing your coördinates by 8 (except for the Y-coördinate). These Nether Coordinates will tell you where to put your portal in the Nether so they will be linked up correctly.
You can calculate nether coordinates by dividing your overworld X and Z coordinates by 8. Your Y coordinate will stay the same. The Nether Portal Calculator will do the calculating for you so you will always have the correct coordinates. Check the instructions for the linking process.
For the x and z axis, you need to divide the overworld coordinates with eight. The y axis stays the same in the nether. If you calculate this you find out that (700, 700, 700) is at (87, 700, 87) in the nether.
In Minecraft, it can often be quite tiring to cover great distances in the overworld. By linking up portals, you can shorten your travel time significantly, because travelling 1 block in the Nether is equal to travelling 8 blocks in the overworld. This is really useful for having a quick way to get to your villages, strongholds and creations around your world. Follow the instructions above to know more about how you can link up your portals.
The purpose of this tool is to convert coordinates in Minecraft to Nether coordinates, and the other way around. It will also give you clear instructions on how to use these coördinates to link up portals in Minecraft. I created this tool because I found converting coördinates using a regular calculator inconvenient and because I found it hard to find the right instructions for linking up portals in Minecraft.
The minimum size of a nether portal is 4x5. The maximum size is 23x23. These sizes both include the border of the structure. You can build a nether portal in any size between these two sizes, as long as the shape is a rectangle.
