A Nether Reactor is something that when activated will give you loads of random stuff such as gold dust for glow stone, gold bars, random food, plants and paintings and loads more.
The core can be re used but the rest cannot, unless you quickly save the gold by using your diamond pick axe. The rest will turn into obsidian which you can mine.
First of all, you need to create a nether reactor CORE! I will probably create a guide on that to help you. Also, you need to mine some gold with an IRON Pickaxe and turn it into FOUR gold blocks.
Place the four gold blocks like this
Next place the cobblestone like this (that's my brother he was helping me make it so I could take screenshots)
Now place the nether reactor core in the centre and place the cobblestone around it like this.
Finally, place the remaining cobblestone in a sort of cross shape at the top.
This is what it looks like when it's active.
This is what it looks like when you have collected everything inside the little nether 'cave' aha.
Dig a square in the middle (with a diamond pickaxe) and collect the nether reactor core.
Step outside and admire the night sky hehe ;).
If you want to you can mine the nether bricks and build stuff out of it. This is some of the stuff I collected.
All from ONE nether reactor.
Admire the sunrise! ;) Very bad screenshot
My brother and I did this multiple times and gathered 1000s of nether blocks! :D
