Initially, ruined portals had been really half destroyed and toppled over, however from an onboarding perspective I needed to alter it so that they retained their form to show gamers what a portal appeared like. Cracked obsidian was the perfect resolution – retains the portal form, however makes a few of it cracked for gamers to “restore”.
Whereas the respawn anchor was being developed, nevertheless, I remembered the traditional crying obsidian that by no means made it in – a block that was meant to set your spawn level. So I assumed why not convey these concepts collectively: cracked obsidian grew to become crying obsidian, and it may be used to craft the respawn anchor. Win win!
