    Hey everyone,

    It’s been a while since we’ve had a major announcement like this happen, which we’ll get into in this thread.

    So to begin, we’d like to thank you all for hanging on while we’ve been working behind the scenes on the future of the network. There will be more on that in a separate post coming tomorrow, but until then, let’s get into the main thing!

    That’s right, it’s happening. Skyblock will be finally resetting after having arguably the longest lifespan in recent time for the server, along with easily the most requests for a reset we’ve seen in a long time. We’ve got a lot to cover, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Upon reset, the following will not be transferred:
    - Inventories
    - Ender Chests
    - Player Vaults
    - All worlds and builds
    - McMMO levels
    - In-game currency
    - In-game ranks

    As usual, the following will be transferred:
    - Paid donor ranks
    - Paid donor commands
    Note: if you have any issues with purchases, please make a Purchase Support Ticket.

    Major Changes
    Name
    As part of our long-term strategy, Skyblock will now be known as “Skyblock Ultra”. While this won’t have that much of an effect right now, this will play a much bigger role in the future with Skyblock as a whole. More on this when the time comes.

    Economy
    A vital change that was made previously was the addition of dirt and sand to the market. As part of our plan to give more of a challenge to the server, these two blocks will no longer be in the market, and will instead go back to being a rarity.

    Regular building blocks will also receive a buff in their worth on an island, while ore blocks will remain as they are in order to incentivise actual building of regular islands over entire islands being made of diamond or emerald blocks.

    Challenges will now contain more themed versions in order to encourage general playings, such as making foods, crafting blocks and fishing.

    Both wood and regular farming will also be receiving a buff in order to compete with AFK mining, which will also be receiving a nerf coming into the reset. While this won’t eliminate it, nor do we 100% want to remove it, we want to emphasize actual playing over AFK mining, while still being able to partake in it.

    We plan on making spawners rarer this reset with the hope that there will be more of a challenge in both obtaining and collecting certain types. More will be explained on this in the Mob Spawners section.

    Parkour
    Since its inception on Skyblock all the way back in its simple form from 2016, parkour has evolved into a staple point of the server, slowly evolving as each reset has come about. This reset is no different. Not only have we remade it from the ground up, we now have leaderboards for every course! On top of this, we won’t be limited to only 2 checkpoints per course, and each course will be able to have its own unique rewards for first-time and repeat completions.

    Fishing
    We’ve seen players ask for fishing to have more of a purpose and be a larger part of our servers for a while now. We’re happy to be able to add the new Fishing Lake, an area in spawn that allows you to earn increasingly powerful rewards for fishing. Not only do you gain better rewards, but you can also now increase your level based on your amount of fishing, and the amount of successful catches. The higher your level, the better your rewards!

    Mob Spawners
    Mob Spawners will be receiving some of the biggest changes going into the reset. Firstly, you will no longer be able to change spawners to any random mob. Instead, you will need to collect souls in the form of Peaceful and Corrupt Souls. To gain either of these, you must kill passive and aggressive mobs respectively. With these souls, you can then purchase a Peaceful or Harmful Mob Gems.

    Peaceful Mob Gems allow you to purchase a peaceful mob’s soul gem which can be used in crafting that mob type’s spawner. This is the same for Harmful Mob Gems, except you must kill harmful mobs.

    The last ingredient you need to craft a spawner is a Life Essence. To get these, you can purchase them with Mob Coins, which are obtained through killing any mob.

    In order to craft a working mob spawner, you must have the following:
    1x <mob> Mob Gem
    1x Mob Spawner
    1x Life Essence​

    In the Black Market, you will also be able to purchase empty mob spawners that cannot be placed in order to craft any kind of mob spawner.

    Crates
    For nearly 2 years, Skyblock has used airdrop flares. While they were a great addition at the time, they’ve since become a major issue when it comes to fixing problems with it due to our lack of devs. In order to combat this, we’ve taken the approach that we’ve already taken on OP Factions and Prison by switching flares out for crate keys.

    On top of moving to crates, we’re also introducing the new Ultra crate which will be a tier above the Neme crate. Not only will the Ultra crate contain better items, but it’ll also contain brand new Rank Upgrade tokens! More on those in the Rank Upgrades section.

    Alongside the new crate, we’re also introducing a monthly crate that contains a wide variety of items, whether that be new tag packs, money pouches, an assortment of OP items and much more! You’ll be able to get up to 9 items in this crate, as well as a guaranteed 10th highest tier item. As the name suggests, these crates will change as each month comes about, and depending on the month, the crate may also be themed after the major holiday during that month (December would be Christmas-themed etc).

    Titan
    From its release, Titan has been incredibly successful, but it, unfortunately, was victim to some major issues revolving around the delivery of the periodic rewards (flares, OP items and drop parties) where people would sometimes simply not receive them. To combat this, we have created a new system that will take its place in the form of our brand new rank redemption system. This has already been on the server for a while now (/rankredeem) to redeem the money for your rank each reset. Now, you’ll be able to redeem your rank money, Titan flares, Titan Drop Parties and random OP items. The benefit to this system is that once they have been added to your account on the purchase, there is no reliance on the store to work as they will be handled by the server instead.

    Rank Upgrades
    As the name suggests, Rank Upgrades allow you to upgrade your rank to the next one above it. Not only will this give you the next rank, but it’ll also work with our store, meaning if you wanted to further upgrade your rank, it’ll be treated as if you purchased the upgrade as you’d expect it to! These rank upgrades will typically be available, but not limited to, certain crate types and monthly crates.

    Store
    For years, the store has remained relatively untouched in terms of prices. We understand that certain packages may not be worth their current price. With this reset, we’ve gone through each and every package and updated its price to reflect what we believe to be a fairer price all round, while also allowing us to reduce the sale to a more realistic amount. This change will allow us to have better sales going into holidays while also not being ridiculously high when it’s not a holiday.

    Please note that these prices are still subject to change based off of your feedback, and we are more than open to what you believe would be better priced for any of these packages.

    Server
    While we’ve made several major changes, we’ve also made some minor additions and changes to Skyblock, some of which we’ll show below.

    - Added /anvil
    - You can now see who is trying to buy from your empty chest shop and where
    - Added island borders that you can toggle on or off (certain ranks can change the colour)
    - Titan keys will drop on the ground if your inventory is full
    - Upgrade crystals can no longer be placed
    - Added /nickrestore (restores your nickname to your previous one)
    - You can now toggle rankup messages (/togglerankup)
    - /heal will no longer toggle permanent night vision
    - You can now make villagers private in /is settings
    - Fly will no longer bug out when teleporting between spawn and island world
    - Fly will no longer be disabled when you log out over the void
    - Kill messages will no longer show up if you have them disabled (it'd only not show if the attacker had them disabled)

    By no means is this list all the changes that have been made. After release, there will be a full list of all the additions and changes we have made to the server.

    Rewards

    All members of the top 3 islands with the highest levels will be receiving their tag upon reset, which will be calculated when the server comes down one final time, and the winners will be announced in the follow-up thread containing all the statistics of the season.

    Going into next reset, we’re going to be offering not only the tags for the top 3 island levels, but we’re also going to be offering gift card rewards too!

    #1 - <1st place> (level): $100 Gift Card
    #2 - <2nd place> (level): $50 Gift Card
    #3 - <3rd place> (level): $25 Gift Card
    #4 - <4th place> (level): Runner-up
    #5 - <5th place> (level): Runner-up​

    For the first time, we’re also going to be rewarding the top 3 players to have the highest balance at the end of the season!

    #1 - <1st place> (balance): $100 Gift Card
    #2 - <2nd place> (balance): $50 Gift Card
    #3 - <3rd place> (balance): $25 Gift Card
    #4 - <4th place> (balance): Runner-up
    #5 - <5th place> (balance): Runner-up​

    On reset, anybody that has purchased anything from our store from October 19th onwards will receive their items back within 2 hours of the reset happening (3 weeks rather than 2).

    Once again, thank you all for bearing with us during this time. We understand it has been far too long between this reset and the last. With the upcoming major announcement, this will no longer be the case as you will understand once you see it.

    Skyblock will be resetting on Friday, November 9th! The server will go down at 12PM EST and will remain down for 3 hours until 3PM EST (8PM GMT) where the server will be brought back online for you all to enjoy.

    Thanks for reading, we hope to see you there,
