    • The island level values for vines, ice, and cobblestone have been changed to zero
      • Previously, players were able to gain tens of thousands of levels with very little effort, simply by growing vines, pouring lava and water to make giant cobble pyramids, or changing their island to an ice biome and pouring layers of water to turn into ice overnight
      • This led to a large number of complaints from other players who felt they were being unfairly denied a chance to be on the top 20 islands list because several slots were occupied by islands with large quantities of these naturally occurring blocks
      • We previously set a limit on the number of these types of blocks that could count towards the island level, but it turns out the cap was being ignored due to a bug
      • The island leveling routine will need to be rewritten to fix this issue and several other bugs, but in the meantime, setting the value of these blocks to zero addresses the majority of players' complaints regarding island levels

    Again Leee thanks! It was unfair that some island *cough* that are on the leaderboard had huge amount of cobble just from using lava and water also crossing into others islands borders which annoyed me.

    Was probably only a few thousands, but the bug allowed it to surpass that and give additional levels

    So how often does island level update? When you type the command? If so, I'm not touching that ever again :D
