1.15.2 Nether Portal Effect Screen

  1. Hey, I’m trying to figure out how to play the effect a player would normally see when entering a nether portal to a player.

    From what I’ve found/read the only way that you could achieve this effect is to spawn a portal by the player and remove it a few seconds later all whilst stopping them entry from the nether.

    Is there any other ways of doing this? Maybe with packets?
     
  2. My guess would be spawn a client-side block that being a portal and have it following them where ever they move for 2 - 3 seconds and then destroy the block, if possible; try to mask or hide the block or disguise as air never dealt with packets.
     
  3. Cant you add the potion effect confusion to a player for a few seconds? If that's what you mean
     
  4. I could, but it won't have the purple screen screen animation you'd normally get.
     
  5. I believe the portal effect is fully client-sided and cannot be created by any plugins.
