    Update: The deadline has been changed from the 5th, to the 3rd of February.

    Hey, Skyblockers!

    We will be hosting a competition where we will select multiple winners. The challenge is to create a simple island for the new skyblock server. The island will be available when the server opens as a starter island. Make sure the island is relatively small and not overpowered. You may build the island anywhere as long as you can provide a schematic for it (see directions here). If you build it on mineverse.com creative, we can obtain the schematic ourselves.

    Be creative and make it original. We encourage you to use different blocks, shapes, etc. Do not make the island out of rare things such as diamond blocks, ores, beacons, etc. Make sure you keep the chest empty.

    Please be aware if you submit an island to the competition, we have the right to edit it and make changes to what we deem would be appropriate for the new server.

    Each winner will receive a prize of $30 in the form of a coupon for the new or old server -- it’s up to you. Your island will also be featured.

    Please submit your entries in this thread. Make sure the pictures/video is high quality. Only respond below if you have a question or you are submitting an entry.

    Format:
    In-game Name:
    Island Name:
    Screenshots/Video:


    The competition ends Saturday, February 3, 2018.

    Good luck!

    Do you want it to be themed like the current islands we already have?

    The islands can be any form you wish. Grass and dirt are highly recommended to be on the island, but do not go overboard on it. You can experiment with different blocks. If your island is good, but we think it lacks some needed features, we will edit. As of now, we would like everyone to use their imagination!

    Can I get my donor on a new account on the new server because I’m locked out of my old one.

    You can use your $30 coupon on any account you wish. Make sure you put the account you want in the IGN place or specify when you submit your island. If you want a rank transfer, you'll have to message CypriotMerks.

    [Architect] So... I could always go with this and a nice landscaped garden surrounding it:


    Note: I still have my design files and it fits a 200x200 setting

    I'm afraid it will not be coming out within the next two weeks.

    It is supposed to be a starter island and not overpowered. Fairly small and simple is the way to go!

    Benji is correct. You do not need to provide a schematic if you build it on the mineverse.com creative server.

    Cool to see this happening! I actually made a desert themed skyblock just in case anything like this would ever happen. :) I’ll post the screenshot tomorrow morning.

    Hi i was wondering if i buy an item in the skyblock shop and do not receive it will I be refunded? If not that would seem kind of illegal especially if I’d have tons of proof (its a question)

    Yes, that's it!

    I don't think you will be refunded... it is a donation after all. If you do not reveive what you've payed for, please contact a manager or CypriotMerks to receive it.

    We've decided to not make a block limit. If it's too big, I will try to alert you, or we will edit it if you win.
