    • Confirmed

      If you take a compass with you into the nether and back, it don't points anymore to the spawn point.
      But always to following coordinates in the world:
      x:8 y;?? z:8

      It't reproducible in any gamemode.

      The only solution I found is to close and reopen the savegame.

      If you die (kill yourself) the compass is also fixed

      it's not such a big issue but still annoying.

      When you travel to a different dimension the client receives a S07PacketRespawn packet (MCP 1.8 names). Because the client does not store all servers for the different dimensions it creates a new WorldClient and copies most of the data from the dimension before, for example if it was hardcore etc. or information contained in the respawn packet. The spawnpoint is however defaulted to the initial spawnpoint which is (8|64|8) because it is neiter contained in the respawn packet nor is it copied to the new WorldClient from the old one.

      These might be some possible ways to solve it, that come in my mind right now:

      • Adding the spawnpoint in the respawn packet. This information would be unnecessary when the player dies in the overworld, this however already happens for the difficulty, the world type and the game mode.
      • Sending a S05PacketSpawnPosition from the server when the player changes the dimension and when the player dies in a different dimension. This creates the same bug described in this report when there is latency and the player does not receive this packet.
