    What

    I suggest that once the servers are reset the custom smelting for skyblock (not sure if it's on grid/survival or not) is changed from cobble -> stone -> sand -> glass to:
    1. Cobble
    2. Stone
    3. Smooth Stone (the block being added to creative inventory in 1.13 and then survival in 1.14 by smelting normal stone)
    4. Gravel
    5. Sand
    6. Glass

    Why

    Firstly, adding in the smoothstone step will futureproof any contraptions made as it means that once we update to 1.14 the smelting stays the same.
    Secondly, it's a cool block with a nice texture and I think it should be made available in 1.13 as well as 1.14 when it becomes available normally.
    Finally, gravel will become much easier to obtain to craft concrete, as growing the trees in the nether is a big pain because the glowstone takes a long time to mine.

    Positive

    - Server will be futureproofed
    - Extra blocks for us to use
    - Easier method to get concrete (just includes lots of smelting rather than trees in nether)

    Negative

    Getting glass from cobble will now use 5 coal rather than 3, however this may cause an increase in price which will be good for the economy.

    How

    However the custom recipes are currently implemented from stone to sand, I'm sure there's a way to edit that to add in some extra steps.

    if that is the way you would smelt in vanilla 1.14, i'd say yes. However i never saw the reason for smelting stone into sand. You could say it's to make it easier to get, but then why don't we have easier recipes for every block? if smelting smooth stone in 1.14 turns into gravel, i'll jump on board, otherwise, no.

    I think the process should be a little shorter. Maybe cobble, stone, gravel, sand?

    The whole point of this is to add the new (old?) Smooth Stone block into the mix. Gravel was just something I thought could be added.

    Oh ok then +1 this would be cool to mix in a new 1.13 block. But do you know for older versions what block it’s replaced with?

    It has existed in the game for a while, just not been available to get, definitely since at least 1.7 or maybe further behind.

    Challenges can only be repeated x amount of times.

    Members don’t have access to /materials. They need a way to get sand

    smoothstone will automatically be from smelting stone in 1.13
