    The Admin team is about to start working on our SkyBlock server!

    While we're in the process of developing the server, is there anything you guys would like for the server to have?

    We're going for a simple set-up, but we're also hoping we can make it fun enough where players can enjoy it as much as they enjoy CraftBlock.

    Feel free to suggest anything from plugins, plugins we should use that's on CraftBlock, and if you're into SkyBlock, tell us what you think makes a SB server fun, and what shouldn't we do!

    We'll have the server ready in hopefully a few weeks.

    A plugin you should try to find is a:
    • Challenge plugin:
      These would bring well, some challenge to the Skyblock server. Like "Make 20 Cookies" and reward for that could be like 2 Redstone Dust or two Iron Ore.
    Also, a player could donate about 2-5 dollars to the Skyblock server to get a prefix and a warp to their island (with anti-grief on)

    Slimefun would be wild on SkyBlock, but I don't know if it is a good idea. But please make the max people per island like 20 or something high so you can have all your friends on one island and not having to worry about someone not being able to join.

    Sky factory is something that can be pulled off really well, it uses SlimeFun and you just start with a tree and some dirt. I have the IP of a server if any staff want to message me for it to check out how it works, make sure to turn of levels for SF unlocks! :D

    I played the old sky block a decent amount. One of my favorite things was the auto ranking system. It felt as if I always had something to do. There was a bit of down time though when I had to reach 24 hours playtime. We also had a greenhouse/biomes plugin that helped with progression and more things to do. We also had a challenge plugin that was tied to auto rank fairly well. Although Holly broke the challenges too often attempting to make new challenges. I don't believe the old system had a player cap on islands. You had your own island and you were allowed to invite people onto your island and give them specific permissions on that island. We also had a scoring system and leaderboards that allowed teams. Honestly the old system had almost everything asked for in this thread it just lacked longevity and died off after awhile I guess.

    Okay so I used to play skyblock every day when I got home from school. My favorite feature from all of it overall is the Minion skyblock.

    How about giving the higher donator ranks fly on there? Also spawner would be kewl, But make it hard for people to get, like 4% in crates or pay irl money for one. Also make it where the donator ranks can only mine the spawners and pick them up. :p:D

    You should be able to add unlimited amount of people to your islands, and the more peoplr you had could determine how big you could make your island or how many challenges you complete, so there is some sort of growing process. Also ranks should be based on time played.

    How about when making a cobble gen, extra ores can spawn, but you need extra ranks. e.g.

    Rank 1: Cobble
    Rank 2: Cobble, Coal
    Rank 3 Cobble, Coal, Iron
    etc.
