Sneak peek – upcoming skyblock features

I don’t often mention things before they’re deployed on the server. However, a lot of great things are cooking. It’s time you have a sneak peek on several major milestones…

Completely revamped island system — work in progress, about 50% done

  • Changing island ownership
  • Island lock-down to prevent non-members from even entering your protected space, including through flying and warping there
  • Expanding your island beyond the initial 100 x 100
  • Island l….s
  • Tied into the above, island wide b…s

These last 2 items will completely change the way you play skyblock. I pretty much guarantee you’ll love it.

Completely revamped challenges system — coding not started yet

  • Having not gathering challenges like make 20 cobble, but complex stuff like make and activate a nether portal, kill xx spiders, make a brewing stand and brew 20 health potions, and so on. Including tiered challenges, or quest chains if you will, where completing a challenge will make the next one available.
  • Player l….s, gained from completing harder challenges and – to a smaller degree – by day to day activities you enjoy doing
  • The above will tie in and form the base for 2 major features of the new island system

Player p..s and m….s will be coming to skyblock in the near future.

Mining operations

Enjoy 🙂

      Yes. When you’ll be able to lock down your island, it includes anyone arriving there via your warp. It’s like placing it in maintenance mode, or making it fully private.

      No, I mean some players asked if they can transfer ownership of their island to someone else. Like you’re the owner of your island, and you add someone to it. Later you want to move on, and say join another island. As island owner, you cannot do that currently but will be able to in the future.

        That’s a great new feature! So it will be possible to create islands for other players who don’t want to do the very start of skyblock with creating a cobble gen and expanding or even to build farms and amazing houses on it and sell the whole island to someone who does want to take it over.

    What is with the l….s things.

    Next the challenges system looks cool time but the last to things didn’t make sense to me.

    Also the last two things on the first list (the coming server changes) doesn’t make sense to me aswell because of all the … things.

      I don’t want to reveal too much, too soon. So these words are not completely revealed. Try and figure it out 🙂

        I have figured it out!

        We’re going to have island wide impracticabilities…our skies will fill with ice blocks and chickens with drop 40 feathers each.

        We’ll also have island wide bake sales ^.^

    just one question though…Will you be able to turn off the island block on your island so people can come to a shop or are shops going to be moved to a spot in spawn or what?

      If you decide to lock the island, nobody except the island members (and moderators) can get to it. This includes player shops or warps. It wouldn’t make it much of a lockdown if people would still be able to get to your island now, would it? 🙂

    oKay so he is going to expand the Island level and boundaries 🙂 Unwanted players will be locked away from your Island 😛

    Oh, I know, you will be able to move your island location to wherever you want!!! I.E snow biome or swamp 😛

    So for the island ownership change thing is that saying that if I am not the owner of an island (I am a member of the island) but I would like to become the owner and the current owner doesn’t mind if I become the owner can we switch places? As in I am the owner now and he’s just a member. Will that be possible?

      It’s not possible to have 2 biomes in the same place. However it is possible to have like half island in a swamp biome and the other half in tundra.

        So we are going to be able to change the biome? Cause right now I am in the swamp biome, but I want to be in tundra cause I love snow

            K thx… If we change where the island is, would our island like glitch and despawn or something?

          Now that the SG server is nearly ready, my focus will be back on Skyblock to finish a lot of new features I had planned for a while.

      Highly unlikely. It will be possible to increase your island size, but two separate ones, I’m not sure.

      Very close. As in the first version should be ready in a day or two, but not with all the new features. Then, once bugs have been squashed, I’ll add the remaining features.
