    Survival

    - Version 1.13.1 is here for Survival!
    - The world has been reset so we can all enjoy all the new content that was introduced with the Aquatic Update! The new world has plenty of water on it so everyone can experience the fun.
    - Donor and Timed ranks are retained but all other things have been reset
    - At this time you must use the 1.13.1 client to connect to the survival server.
    - 1.13.1 is still considered experimental, so don't be surprised if bugs are ran into
    - I put in many, many hours to perform this upgrade and to keep the play experience as close as possible to the old survival server. With that said, I'm sure there are things I missed and will get on as soon as I become aware of them.

    Skyblock and OP Skyblock
    You can now have your very own minion mining for you.
    More details over in our tutorials section.


    Tree Assist has been installed. No more will cutting down trees be a tedious task! Just chop the bottom log of any tree and watch it fall. You still gain MCMMO xp and are still able to use the MCMMO Tree Feller ability.

    Skyblock
    The command /ifly has been added. This will toggle island fly for those that have gained it with the Timed Rank A. In order for the toggle to take effect the command will also send you to spawn. Once you get back to your island the toggle will be in effect.

    Compressed blocks have been implemented on Skyblock, OP Skyblock, and Survival. This allows players to compress blocks which should save on storage.

    Blocks that can be compressed:

    • logs
    • planks
    • gravel
    • sand
    • stone (all variants)
    • cobblestone
    • soulsand
    • netherrack
    • dirt
    Survival
    Since the last update post we have added the ability to toggle your PVP status in game.
    • /pvp on, /pvp off, /pvp toggle
    Armor stand editor was also added

    Skyblock and OP Skyblock
    Added the ability to make clay using gravel and water. There are three ways to do this
    • Place a gravel block and run water over it to create a clay block
    • Throw a gravel block into running water to create 4 clay balls
    • Craft a clay block with a water bucket and gravel

    The new Skyblock server has opened. This server can be accessed with /sb or using the portal at /hub. With this server opening, the skyblock server we all know and love will, going forward, be known as the OP Skyblock server.

    With this in mind the commands to reach various servers has changed to the following:

    • OP Skyblock - /opsb
    • Skyblock - /sb
    • Survival - /survival
    • Hub - /hub

    Skybock (new)
    This server is to provide a more challenging skyblock experience for players. A lot of the 'perks' that exist on the OP Skyblock server are gone (MCMMO bonus, high rate oregens, etc)
    • A new island to start on
    • Creeper griefing is on
    • Oregen rates are very low and limited
      • 5 levels depending on island level
    • Nether islands enabled! Each player has their own Nether space
      • Consists of 4 islands. Spawn island and 3 other islands with appropriate mob spawners on them
    • Access to The End is gained by completing the Mason island challenge
    • Votes are shared across the skyblock servers
    • Donor ranks/perks apply to both skyblock servers (perks vary between servers)
    • The shop has been revamped to help regulate the economy
    • No /god, /fly, /repair, /enchant to add to the challenge
    • Island fly can be gained at the top timed rank
    This is a new server, so some bugs/issues may arise. Please use the /ticket command to report anything and we'll get on it as soon as we can.
    We reserve the right to make changes seen fit to keep the game/economy balanced.

    OP Skyblock
    You asked for it and we implemented it. Builder Wands are here. They can be crafted with a diamond and 2 blaze rods. Recipe is (starting from lower left hand corner and up diagonally) diamond, blaze rod, blaze rod)

    This is a new plugin and may contain bugs. If the bugs are big enough, we may temporarily disable this until a fix comes out.

    To use the wand you need to have a layer/base of blocks already placed. Then with the wand in your hand, point to the blocks and particles will form showing where the next set of blocks from your inventory will be placed. It's hard to explain but feel free to play around with it.

    The builder wands start with 130 durability (uses). Once consumed another wand will need to be crafted.
