One of the most thrilling aspects of playing Minecraft is discovering the Nether. The nether is completely different from the overworld as it introduces new mobs, blocks, and a totally separate feel to the world. With this seemingly endless world type, exploration is limitless. Although the nether is an infinite world type, many server owners will want to reset it as after players have explored it too much, you will start finding constantly explored fortresses, valuable blocks mined, and many player-built bases.
Once the Nether has been over-explored, players generally will get bored of it. For this reason, server owners may want to reset the Nether to allow the players a refreshed experience.
Another reason that a server owner may want to reset is for nether updates, such as the 1.16 Minecraft update. If you host with Apex, you can easily reset your nether with a single click button on our game panel. We will walk you through exactly how to do that! We will also be walking you through how you can reset the nether manually.
Please note that this only works for Minecraft Java Edition and not Bedrock Edition.
Manually resetting the Nether
The instructions below are assuming you are running Vanilla Minecraft. If you are running Craftbukkit, Spigot, or Paper your nether folder may be placed in the main directory. The name will be the “Yourworldname_nether”. You can select and delete that folder to reset your nether.
The Nether didn’t reset after deleting the folder
If you have deleted the DIM-1 folder and the nether is the same, it is likely that you removed a nether folder from the wrong world or that you are running Spigot, Bukkit, or Paper. Firstly, check the world name you have set in the world field and make sure that it is the same as the world you were modifying. Also, remember that if you are running Spigot, Bukkit, or Paper you delete the “worldname_nether” folder and not the “DIM-1”.
