I have noticed that nether gets reset every month. Why?

 

The player base right now would suggest the nether be reset every 3 months. I haven't seen any depletion of quarts or glowstone (which can be obtained in the witch farm easy), so why not only reset every 3 months - and sooner on demand.

 

I think this might encourage people to build stuff in the nether. Not just farms, but maybe a nice portal house, some rails and maybe something larger.

 

I know that I mentioned in an earlier post, that I didn't want to build in the nether, but that was in the permanent nether. I don't have plans for a huge nether castle. A reset nether that lasts 2-3 months would be more interesting for me, and having a bit more time with it would make me build something there.

 

Am i the only one interested in a nether that resets less often?

for me the availability of glow stone would be the reason.  

Where is the witch farm - and does it really provide glowstone at the same rate as a trip to a freshly reset nether would?

I would like the longer interval, maybe even 6 months. 3 months is a good compromise.

The witch farm is just south of the north portal, and it's very fast. I have no measurements of how fast it makes glowstone, but you can just stand afk at the top, and it will make lots.

I'll try to make a 1 hour test to see how much it makes of the different drops soon.

It's not that we should have the nether resets carved in stone at 3 months, just a planned reset every 3 month, or sooner if people want it.

I agree with spacing out the nether resets

This is what the witch farm gave me in about 1 hour:

 

5½ stacks of Glowstone dust

5½ stacks of glass bottles

11½ stacks of sticks

5½ stacks of spider eyes

5½ stacks of gunpowder

5½ stacks of sugar

5½ stacks of redstone dust.

Have to agree that the witch farm does an awesome job.
