Portal spawned sideways, any advice?


#1

Placed a 1x8 portal, opened it and it was side ways tried bumping and replacing the conduits same thing happened, is it because its too tall? A friend stated that 1 wide portals orientate themselves. any solution?
Thanks in advance.


#2

i removed 3blocks to go in hope ya dont mind :smile:
could not wait to go scoop it out :smile:


#3

I noticed, dont blame you. going to have to redesign it. looks strange now :3


#4

maybe you can hide a second row off conduit in the sword not sure though but it could work


#5

it used to be you could only open 1x portals in a north south position. i thought it had changed to the direction you are standing when you place and or open the portal but maybe not.


#6

Hope they fix the orientation for ye.


#7

Sorted it!! changed it to a 3x1


#8

I don’t use them because I just make a 2x3 since it is the same Oort costs… but from what I understand both portals have to face the same orientation. So like Jeff said north to south.


#9

its a bug - all 1 x whatever portals have their exits open sideways, so if you need a shape like that you just plan exit differently;
I reported that problem quite a while ago and devs said it needs to be fixed sometime in future but sure I dont expect it to be high on list of priorities

Had this Issue, and I managed to sort it out by going back to the first portal and break that one.
