Creepers in Nether Blowing up Upon my Arrival

    Is anyone else having this issue? Every once in a while (happened 3 times now) when I go to the Nether, there is a creeper waiting inside the nether right at my portal who proceeds to blow up right when I enter. The first time it killed me, and subsequent times I've been able to jetpack away just enough to barely survive with one heart, but it turns off my portal. I'm worried about getting stuck in the nether one of these days if I don't happen to have flint and steel with my when I enter.

    I was always under the impression that overworld mobs don't spawn in the nether and can't travel through portals. Is this normal now to Minecraft and I just missed it? Or is this possibly an addition to one of the mods? I've tried lighting up the area around both my overworld nether portal and the nether nether portal. Nothing has worked so far. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    BTW, I'm running the latest version of Mindcrack pack.

    Ok, thanks. Guess I'll just have to try and travel with a few cats and hope my reflexes are quick enough.

    or you could put some torches and fences/walls around the portal to keep mobs from wandering in. :p

    Yes just make it so no mobs get near your portal. Since the Neither is an unloaded chunk any thing that goes in can not go anywhere and will wait right at the portal for you. No way to be fast enough because they will most likely blow up before you even done loading into the neither.

    Yeah, I had the area lit up like crazy, but apparently that hadn't been working. I imagine the creepers were still wandering in from somewhere, so I just decided to surround my portal in glass. Seems to be working thus far. Thanks for you help guys.

    Once I travelled to the nether and blew up on arrival. I never saw what caused it and I never found my stuff again either. Weird.

    Very ninja, since I'd only just created the portal. How one got through without already blowing up is beyond me.

    Transdimensional Space Ninja Creeper.

    I hear his power level is over 9000.

    By the way, I love those little things, they keep the ghast population down.

    Anyway, a creeper has got nothing on an angry zombie on the other side of your portal. One of those guys will proceed to rape you with your own weapon over and over again.

    I'm keeping my portal off nowadays. Thank you RP.

    Funny story.

    So I was in plain old MC working on setting up a nice looking Portal room/base on the neither side of things when as you might all have done before I mistakenly smack a pig man and his crew jump in and murder my face.

    Oh well not to bad I'll just re arm and head back to kick some piggy butt.

    But wait whats this I'm getting my face murdered already?

    Thats right folks I had slept next to the portal since I was working and one of the pig men got knocked into or wondered through the portal while I was re spawning.

    So yeah 12 deaths later .... yeah I got spawn camped by pig men.

    Of course! I'd forgotten about those because I haven't seen myself in game. But it appears that one saw me. Thanks for solving this mystery!
