    Gameplay Shift

    The goal of this reset is to provide a new gameplay experience for all players and those competing for Island Top. We have made necessary changes and balances to increase player engagement/activity and steer away from AFK grinding. The changelog below explains the new changes! With these changes, we hope to have longer maps (3-4 months)

    Island Top Value Changes
    Block values have been revisited and updated.

    • View the Top Value Blocks with /is values
      • [​IMG]
    • Non-Valued blocks have been removed
    • Beacons value increased (no longer craftable)
    • End portal frames added
    • Infinity Stones added
    • Obsidian added
      • Blazes will now drop obsidian
    Island Challenges
    The SkyBlock Island Challenges system has been completely redone. Previously challenges were solo based and provided no real benefits. For this reset, SkyBlock Challenges or Island Challenges will play a big role in helping your island get to the top and encourage teamwork.
    • Type /challenges to see the daily challenges.
      • [​IMG]
      • There are 5 challenges that will reset/rotate- every day!
      • Each challenge completed will reward you with 1 Island Point
    • Complete challenges with your Island Team to earn Island Points
      • Spend Island Points in the new /island shop
      • Spend Island Points on upgrading your island /island upgrade
    Island Points Shop
    After earning Island Points from challenges completed, you can spend them on perks for yourself or your Island!
    • Use /is shop to open the Island Shop GUI
      • [​IMG]
    Purchase boosters, boss mobs, pickaxes, spawners, is top blocks and more!

    Island Upgrades Revamp
    Island Upgrades will now require cash and Island Points

    • [​IMG]
    • Reduced default Island size to 100x100
      • Increased expansion/island size upgrade levels - /is upgrade
    • New upgrade - Waterless Crops
      • This allows you to grow crops in your Island without water
    Lava Fishing
    At spawn you will find a Lava Pond where you can cast your fishing rod to earn epic rewards!
    • [​IMG]
    Once you start fishing, you will see your reward bounce, that means its time to reel in the fishing line to claim your prize!

    Hero Pets
    These are new Pets you can find in the shop, crates, boss mobs, lava fishing etc that provide you epic boosts when in your HOTBAR.
    • [​IMG]
    There are currently 3 Hero Pets to unlock! Each pet can be leveled up by various tasks.
    • Slayer Pet
      • Chance to kill multiple merged/stacked mobs at once
      • Max Level: 10
      • How to level up: Kill mobs
      • How to obtain: Found in Crates, Supply Crates, Boss Mobs, Mob Coin /Shop
    • EXP Pet
      • Chance to receive more exp while mining/killing mobs
      • Max Level: 10
      • How to level up: Grind for exp
      • How to obtain: Found in Crates, Supply Crates, Boss Mobs, Mob Coin /Shop
    • Fisherman Pet
      • Increase chances of winning rewards when Lava Fishing
      • Max Level: 10
      • How to level up: Use a fishing rod at /warp fishing
      • How to obtain: Lava fishing at /warp fishing
    To activate and level up Hero Pets, simply have it placed in your HOTBAR. You can have multiple Hero Pets in your HOTBAR to make the most of their abilities.

    Harvester Chest Removed
    This is a much needed change to restore the engagement of SkyBlock and begin a chapter of new features that steer away from AFK grinding and more towards grinding with your Island Team.

    Harvester Chests have been replaced with:

    • Chunkloaders
    • New Spawner types
    • Sell Hoe Upgrades
    New Chunkloader Minion
    A new minion has been added to replace Harvester Chests. Chunkloader minions will load 9 chunks (3x3 chunk radius) when placed. This is very useful for farming and grinding.
    • [​IMG]
    • The Chunkloader minion has 2 skins
      • [​IMG] [​IMG]
    You can find minions from crates, lava fishing, boss mobs, /is shop , mobcoin shop/spinner and more!

    Economy Changes
    The economy will constantly be monitored and updated to stabalize the server economy. Here are the reset eco changes:
    • Harvester chests removed
    • Ghast spawners removed completey
    • Added endermite spawners to replace Ghast spawners
      • Endermites will be like silverfish, but they drop diamonds
    • Blaze price increased
      • This is because they are valuable and will drop obsidian (higher than emerald in /is top)
    • Obsidian can no longer be bought from /shop
    • Increased Sell Hoe price
    Sell Hoe Revamp
    You can now upgrade your Sell Hoes! Just type /upgrade while holding the Sell Hoe.
    • [​IMG]
    There are 2 enchants that you can apply to Sell Hoes with the upgrade menu:
    • Farmer (Max Level: 100) - Increases the chance/amount of crops per yield
    • Harvester (Max Level: 1) - Harvests a 3x3 area
    The cost to upgrade your sell hoe is the amount of crops harvested/stored by the sell tool which can be found in the lore!
    • [​IMG]
    You cannot apply regular custom enchants on sell hoes or enchant relics.

    New Ingame Ranks
    We have added 2 new ingame ranks to upgrade to - /ranks
    • View ranks with /ranks - Rank up with /rankup
      • [​IMG]
    • #24 - Defender - $30,000,000
      • Create [Sell All] signs
      • Heal - heal yourself
      • More coming soon (suggest down below)
    • #25 - Valiant - $40,000,000
      • Unlimited set homes - /sethome (name)
      • Top Rank SB Tag - /tag
      • More coming soon (suggest down below)
    Rank #23 Eternal now has /ext (stop/cancel any burn damage) instead of /heal

    Captchas
    In order to prevent bots, AFK abuse and suspicious activity we have decided to add captcha maps for various tasks.
    • [​IMG]
    These will be maps that will pop up randomly when mining, killing mobs and breaking sugarcane that you will have to solve. Failure to do so will alert our monitoring systems and kick you from the server.

    KoTH Event
    We've have added a KoTH (King of the hill) event/minigame to /warp pvp
    • [​IMG]
    Use /koth to see koth information, winning a Koth will reward you with the 3 KOTH Crates.
    • [​IMG]
    Use /koth schedule to see when koths are scheduled.

    General Changes and Fixes
    • New spawn build added
    • The portal at spawn will now create an island for new players and teleport players to their Island
    • NPC skins updated
    • Pouches added to /crates

    This changelog has definitely made up from our last reset, and a lot of these changes are such a big step towards making activity important on Skyblock. Just a few things I'd probably add/change

    • Island points shop should rotate daily if it doesn't already.
    • As an alternative to beacons, each infinity stone can grant some status effect to all island members on the island. Having all of the infinity stones can not only give you all the status effects from those stones but also give them an additional amount of island levels (if that's even possible. Or even give them a super-duper rare block or item they can place to give them more island levels). And possibly change the color of their island leader on /is top and /is warps to gold or something (completely cosmetic and would show that the island has all infinity stones). This would make these infinity stones unique and not just be some ordinary island level block (though that's probably its original purpose)
    • Pets should be disabled in /warp pvp. This will make certain pets from seeming overpowered (mainly the feeder and healer pets)
    Looking quite forward to this reset

    Not really. This update is better than the ones we have been having lately which just made AFK more and more worth it

    Can't AFK either anymore. There is now a captcha for mining blocks in ore generators and killing blazes (pots dont work either).

    Also, it's true that players may not have enough time to grind and stuff but that's kind of the point. AFKing would still give some income but not as much as those who come on every day and are actively playing the server. It's more fair that way

    I miss the harvester chests. They were nice at least. But I see the issue with the farm working full time when a chunk loader is used.
