    Skyblock/SkyGrid/Survival Reset Date

    We will be aiming to open the new servers on this upcoming Thursday night. Hopefully around 8 PM EST

    Here are some of the new features you can look forward to which will be added to what you are already familiar with. There will be tutorials at spawn for each server telling you how to use all of the new things
    • money economy and a GUI for server buy/sell shop
    • player chest shops (like bending & prison)
    • amazing brand new spawns and player shop areas created by the build team
    • 1v1 arenas created by the build team
    • mcMMO plugin and all the features that come with it
    • custom enchants over 80 new enchantments for your gear
    • upgradeable spawners to make them faster
    • upgradeable furnaces to make them faster and more fuel efficient
    • liquid tanks for liquid storage [pic]
    • synccraft plugin allowing you to upgrade hoppers and teleport items directly to chests (no more hopper chains needed)
    • survival created with epicworldgen (like bending) as well as a skylands dimension
    • skyblock each island will have a complimenting nether island, no more regular nether
    • skyblock cobble generators will have a chance of producing ores
    • automatic challenges for skyblock and skygrid
    • the skyblock plugin has tons of small neat features you will just have to see
    • survival and skygrid protection plugin has gotten a huge upgrade by me, now has a GUI as well as customizeable radius for claims
    • you might not like these, but there will be no spawners generating in the skygrid world, and hunger level will be kept on death
    regarding extra island spaces: in the new plugin it is not possible for someone to own multiple islands, however how it is set up there is a large buffer zone between islands. The size of this can be changed per island, so I will compensate those who bought extra spaces previously by reducing the buffer between them and their neighbors, giving you more space to build

    regarding loot keys: standard keys will be nerfed, ultra keys will be slightly nerfed, ultra keys will become the default vote reward, standard keys will remain as the ad reward, legendary keys will be slightly rarer but may be getting some new rewards

    Is it Askyblock? It's a good plugin, I've played it before.

    That is great, cannot really see the time :) (and here will go all my free time next month)
    Just to keep up the hype - if ever needed - 2 questions/hopes.
    1) will be finally trashed that crappy skygrid 128 blocks height limit?
    2) Are you keeping that awful askyblock score system (i.e. based on blocks placed)? Hope not, because I've played a lot of sb instances with that and it is really a game killer, with all people preferring bulk over art, just to be in the top 10 islands.

    Anyway, whatever your design choices, I believe it will be a great fresh experience, good job.

    And DO NOT DARE moving the date :)

    sorry its no to both those questions because 128 is good for skygrid and a score system isnt easily changed

    Never mind, it is really a matter of personal taste... I will cope and enjoy either case.

    Was wondering (and I mention here against my interests ) how are you going to keep together a skyblock score system based on block placing and the presence of old ranks who have some unlimited blocks ... I'm not going to abuse (do not care for score) but give it a thought

    Editing: dunno if it is possible, but maybe the score system could be tweaked to give 0 points to blocks in the unlimited list for the single player, or just do not include sponsor ranks in the ladder.
    About money economy, it is obvious for me, but maybe could go in the rules, sponsor ranks should not be allowed to market their unlimiteds, as it was in the previous rules
