Ok guys, since the 0.5.0 update just came out, and I am sure you all know the "Nether" was released with this update, I thought I would go ahead and show you the schematics for how to create the nether reactor.

Firstly, you will need to have a good sized area to work at, and second you will need a total of 3 diamonds, 36 gold ingots, 6 iron ingots, and 14 cobblestone.

In the center of the area, you will need to place 4 gold blocks on the corners of a 3x3 area in the center of your workspace like so:


Next, fill the spaces in between the gold blocks with cobblestone like so:


On the top of the 4 gold blocks, place 4 more cobblestone:


To make the nether reactor core you will need 3 diamonds, and 6 iron:


Place your nether reactor core in the center:


Place 1 cobblestone on the top of the nether reactor core:


On the 4 sides of that, you will need to place 4 more cobblestone so it looks like a +:


Once that is done, you now have your nether reactor. To activate it, simply click on it.

When the nether reactor is activated it will spawn pigmen, and a few items such as mellons, glowstone, and other items for a short amount of time. The casing of the reactor is made of obsidian, and it is recommended you build only 1 per world.

Unfortunately, I can not post a picture to show what it looks like seeing as how I am short on materials. Missing a little gold, I have more than enough diamonds.
Anyway, I am sure someone from here can post a picture showing the nether reactor when activated. But that's the lesson for today, hope you guys enjoy the update. Good luck with your adventures!

The aftermath:

This picture was taken from over 20 blocks away:


This picture was taken less than 10 blocks away:


Please note, this was only after using 1 nether reactor. This is not something you want to do close to home.

Signs have been added, however they are currently blocked off for a future update. The reason why they have not been added just yet is because there are problems getting them to work reliably with the virtual keyboards on most mobile devices.

There is no netherrack in the game, technically. It is called Glowing Obsidian.

Correct. I was doing the schematics in creative though so that way it would be easier to show you guys.
