How does the underside End Portal glitch work?



  • So according to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gg_2iNE1Fo , you can actually locate an End City rather easily, before even fighting the Ender Dragon.

    The video suggests standing underneath the Portal, then using a piston to push you (the player), which causes you to trigger the Portal, but instead of sending you to the central island with the End Dragon, it will instead send you to the "relative coordinates" (Slow Falling and Ender Pearls advised) of an End City.

    Can anyone explain how exactly this works? That is, the functionality of the underside of the End Portal, as opposed to the topside; and what determines the End City chosen? I.e. is it only one particular End City? or is there something about the End City that determines the link?



  • That glitch will send you to the "relative coordinates" in The End, you have no clue that you will find an End City.

    But, we know that:

    • Outer End Islands are found 1000 blocks away from the central island
    • https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/End_City are generated only in chunks numbered 0-8 +- a multiple of 20

    So it's technically possible to deduce an End City location.

    (But I can't answer why this actually works.)
