    Hey!

    I'm known on Hellblock as the Lavagod ($100 donor) ImTube. So I'm gonna explain to you how to start on Hellblock and how to achieve some things.

    You get your island with doing /newisland, like on Skyblock. However, this is how your island will look like this. (Picture in the spoiler)
    Except you don't have glass on it nor signs.

    So, when you get that your island contains soulsand, a glowtree, 1 chest, 2 lava sources (sometimes one but can be fixed, I'll tell you on later!) 4 dirt and sometime 1 grass. The chest contains 1 bucket, 2 bones, 1 sapling, 1 netherwart and 1 of each mushrooms.

    So I'll tell you what to do to get started (how to get some netherrack to walk on).

    1. You get rid of the glowtree to get some space to grow a tree.
    2. You pick up the dirt from the 2nd layer of the island. I warn you, watch out for the lava.
    3. You place a sapling on the dirt and use the bones to get bonemeal.
    4. Grow the tree.
    5. Chop down for wood. (Now you can make a crafting bench, signs and a wooden pickaxe)
    6. Make the netherrack generator. (Picture in the spoiler)
    7. You mine the netherrack to expand your island.

    And there you have a simple way to start.

    Then I've done a little FAQ.

    Q. How do I get water?
    A. There is no water.

    Q. How do you get netherbricks?
    A. You smelt netherrack for that.

    Q. How do I get cobble?
    A. You vote, either type in game '/vote' or in your browser type 'vote.hellblock.net'

    Q. How do I get quartz?
    A. /warp trade, the 2nd floor, there's a villager that sells.

    Q. How do I get armor?
    A. You can make armor using rotten flesh, glowstone, quartz and netherstar armour. You would craft it like you would craft normal armor.

    Q. I had only one lava source, how can I make a generator now?
    A. The trick behind this is following, you make an infinite lava source. It can only be done here because, well, Hellblock has only one way to get lava and it's via getting an island. (Unless you have a source) so that's why it will not work on .Net or .Org. (Picture in the spoiler, custom plugin)

    Q. How do I get more bones?
    A. Either you do /kit bone (works every 2h) or then you go to /warp mob, the right tower of Netherbricks has wither skeletons in it.

    Q. How do I get food?
    A. You can get food by 1) Starting a mushroom farm for mushroom stew 2) You make a farm, with potatoes and others 3) Ask a Lavagod to spawn some mobs, e.g. pig, cow.

    Q. Now how do I get carrots, potatoes and food like that?
    A. Mostly can be achieved at /ma j or killing zombies at /warp mob, however, some can be bought at /warp trade.

    Q. How do I make tools?
    A. See, Hellblock is special, instead of using cobble we have a plugin that gives you the chance to make nether tools, bones as sticks and netherrack, glowstone, quartz or netherstar as material.

    Q. How do I get netherstars?
    A. Either you play the mob arena (known as /ma j) to level 2o, get real lucky in a vote or buy from other players.

    How do you do a farm? Well, it's like on Skyblock, but the water is replaced with lava. So you use a hoe on the dirt, plant the food (melon seed, pumpkin seed, potato or carrot) and then you just let it grow. (And this is because a custom plugin)

    For other tips/hints, ask players while online. If you're online while no-one else is, go ahead and ask here. The signs at /spawn tells you the default things.

    Things that are illegal to trade:
    Soulsand
    Bucket
    Dirt
    Water (also illegal to own)

    Remember to check IGN's thread for Advanced netherrack generator.
    HELLBLOCK: Advanced Netherrack Generator (Custom Design & Tutorial) | Skyblock Forums

    I made this of a request by my friend, vfuvegvfga.

    There is the donation ranks which are following.

    Netherknight $10
    Magmamaster $25
    Firelord $50
    Lavagod $100


    So any questions about Hellblock? Ask away, I'll be happy to answer every question.

    Regards,
    ImTubeless

    Also, you might want to add in that the unlimited lava sources only work because of a custom plugin. Also might want to explain that farming uses lava instead of water, also because of a plugin.

    You're a mod, you couldn't add it yourself? -.- xD
    I don't speak English like 10/10, so typos are common in these situations :p I'll fix this.
    Alright, I'll add this.

    It's 49 blocks from your bedrock in each direction. Good thing you've asked ^^

    Netherknights don't get spawners. :p
    Also add what items you get from kits and what the actual command is.
    Ex:Netherknights receive a kit called /kit donor1. The kit gives you 4 stacks of netherrack, 6 iron, and a stack of redstone. You also get a cool blue Netherknight prefix beside your username. :p
