releaseDebug chests no longer spawn, preventing Nether portal items from being obtained this way.

Appearances[]

Java Edition Alpha
v1.2.0previewNether portal items have an unstable item model which changes depending on blocks which are targeted or in loaded chunks. It uses this model in inventories, when held in first or third person view or as a dropped item.
Nether Portal (inventory) (NESW) JE1.png Initially the Nether portal item would appear as a full cube like many other blocks, but targeting an existing portal block would cause the item to morph into its shape: Nether Portal (inventory) (NS) JE1.png Nether Portal (inventory) (EW) JE1.png
Having an existing nether portal block within loaded chunks also appears to influence the shape of the nether portal item. For example, if no existing blocks are loaded, the item may appear in its full cube state, but loading a chunk containing an north-south oriented nether portal will result in the item automatically becoming north-south.
