Here is a non-official FAQ thread for /skyblock. HOW DO I CREATE AN ISLAND? You can create an island by doing /newisland (aliases; /ni, /ni replace). This will then list you an option of islands available to choose from and you can select one. For a visual representation on how islands look, type in the command /warp islands. Look at the different islands, a tiny description and the design/structure. WHAT IS THE CURRENCY? The currency on /skyblock is grass blocks. Grass is used for buying, selling and exchanging (trading one item for another). HOW DO I GET GRASS BLOCKS? There are many ways to get grass blocks (survival in-game currency). Some very popular/easy ways are: /vote - click the links which directs you to voting sites, enter your IGN, complete the CAPTCHA and submit your vote. You get 1 grass block and 1 voter crate key - so with a total of 3 voting sites, you can receive up to 3 grass blocks and 3 voter crate keys. /daily - this command will reward you with 1 grass every 24 hours! For free!!! Tradeshops - create tradeshops and run a store selling in-game goods that players may want. Popular items include but are not limited to grass, sand or iron. Skychat - Skychat is a server game where there is an automated message sent. You need to use your cursor to hover over the message which either reveals a word to type or a scrambled word to unscramble and type. On /skyblock, the prize is 1 grass block. HOW DO I CREATE A CO-OP? Creating a co-op is pretty easy! Follow the steps below: Invite your friend - use the command /coop invite [minecraft username] (remove brackets and add IGN) Accept the request - ask your friend to accept the invite by doing /coop accept. Confirm the request - ask your friend to confirm the invite by doing /coop confirm. Important Note: Whoever is joining the co-op will have their inventory cleared but the island/co-op leader will keep their items. Enderchest items stays the same. HOW DO I CHECK IF A STAFF IS ONLINE? There are two ways to check this. a) Click the TAB key on your keyboard and view for the following prefixes: [Helper] - [Mod] - [Mod] - [Manager] - [Dev] - [Admin] - [Owner]. You can also enter the command /staff to view all online staff globally. Important Note: There is usually a confusion between Donor400s and Helpers. Please properly view the prefix to see if it either says Donor or Helper. For any reports, concerns or questions for staff, please ask the staff with the prefix bolded above. Our developers, administrators and server owner are frequently busy as well as our manager so please be patient. HOW DO I ADD A FRIEND? Simple! Do /friend add [minecraft username] and once they receive your request, they can do /friend accept [your minecraft username]. HOW DO I REMOVE A FRIEND? You can do /friend remove [minecraft username] and they will be removed from your friends list. HOW DO I EVEN VIEW MY FRIENDS LIST? You can type /friends and the list should be visible. If your minecraft account is linked to the Forums, you can also view it on the Friends Tab on your profile page. WHY CAN'T I GIVE OR ASK FOR DIRT AND BUCKETS? We have prohibited any form of dirt sharing, trading or selling due to the act of island farming. Island farming is the process of continuously restarting islands to collect materials (commonly dirt and buckets). Island farming is illegal and those who commence this act will be punished. We want to give a fair advantage to everyone so we've prohibited the sharing of dirt and buckets in every way. I LOST MY BUCKET, HOW DO I GET IT BACK? Try /lostandfound (alias: /lnf). This retrieves untradable items (dirt and buckets). You can also craft a bucket with 3 iron ingots. Bucket trading/sharing/selling is illegal so you cannot buy buckets from any player. Placing an obsidian block and right clicking it while holding your bucket in hand also gives you lava. This is mainly designed for failed cobble generators but works with regular obsidian as well. WHAT ARE CRATE KEYS AND HOW CAN I USE THEM? Crate keys are a server item which can be used at /warp crates. There are 5 types of keys on our server: Voter Crate Keys - from /vote, vote parties or off players. Common Crate Keys Rare Crate Keys Epic Crate Keys Legendary Crate Keys Ad Crate Keys (no longer usable or distributed from our server) You can different prizes, both good and bad, from crates. Common items include but are not limited to grass, keys, kits or cobblestone. WHAT IS A VOTE PARTY? When the server reaches a certain amount of votes (120 votes on /skyblock), a vote party starts. In the vote party, those who've voted and sometimes those who haven't receive grass and/or voter crate keys. Essentially, it's a thank you from the server for voting for them. WHAT ARE DONOR RANKS? Donor ranks are a perk given to players who've purchased them which contributes as a donation to our server. There are a total of 5 donor ranks which can be purchased on our Skyblock Shop. Donor (Donor400) is no longer sold/accessible. Skyknight - 10$ USD Skyking - 25$ USD Skylord - 50$ USD Skygod - 100$ USD Skytitan - 250$ USD Donor - 400$ USD (no longer sold) WHAT ARE KITS? Kits are a donor perk which gives server donors/ranked players a few items with a cool down. Kits are also achievable in crates but are a one time thing. The higher the rank, the more items in the kit. Skyknight - 256x Cobblestone, 64x Redstone, 6x Iron Ingots Skyking - 256x Cobblestone, 64x Redstone, 6x Iron Ingots, 10x Grass Blocks, 5x Sand, 1x Diamond Pickaxe Skylord - 256x Cobblestone, 64x Redstone, 12x Iron Ingots, 10x Grass Blocks, 10x Sand, 1x Diamond Pickaxe Skygod - 256x Cobblestone, 64x Redstone, 16x Iron Ingots, 15x Grass, 15x Sand, 1x Diamond Pickaxe, 1x Diamond Skytitan - 512x Cobblestone, 64x Redstone, 8x Iron Ingots, 15x Grass, 8x Sand, 1x Diamond Pickaxe, 3x Diamonds Important Note: Each rank has a different cooldown period for their kit, for example Skytitan has a 24 hour cooldown while Skygod has a 48 hour cooldown. HOW DO I CREATE A TRADESHOP? Tradeshops can be a bit tricky. Visiting /warp info has a tiny tutorial but follow the steps below for a detailed explanation: First Line of Sign - enter prefix [Trade] Second Line of Sign - enter quantity amount of item sold (i.e if selling 64 cobblestone, enter 64) Third Line of Sign - enter price of amount of item sold (i.e if I want to sell 64 cobblestone for 1 grass, I will enter 1) Fourth Line of Sign - enter Sell To tell your shop what to sell, hold the item you want to sell and left click the sign.
