    Skyblock Map #2
    Friday 15th June 3PM EDT / 12PM PDT / 8PM BST


    Hey everyone!

    We’re announcing our Skyblock reset today and the start of Skyblock Map #2. The current map will be ending and the new map starting on Friday 15th June at 3 PM EDT / 12PM PDT / 8PM BST.

    ISTOP
    Much like we have done with our recent Factions reset, we will be transitioning the Skyblock ISTOP rewards from one large payout at the end of the map to weekly payouts throughout the duration of the map. The top 3 islands will receive the following rewards weekly every Saturday, starting on the second Saturday after the server has been released.
    • #1: $100
    • #2: $50
    • #3: $25
    The island leader must use the command /setpaypal to set an paypal email address in order to prevent the payouts from being delayed. It is important that you do not attempt to hide your island level, as we will be silently calculating the winners.

    ISTOP Rewards
    Unfortunately as I’m sure many of you will be aware, we encountered a major exploit during this Skyblock map where the Island Bank system we added to accompany the Auto Sell Chests would give out very large amounts of money at random times to any one player. Sadly, some players took advantage of this in order to boost their island level. Due to the nature of the exploit, we were not able to accurately identify who had abused the exploit and who had not and we have therefore taken the decision to cut the PayPal rewards in half.

    Spawn
    We’ve had a new spawn built to replace the current spawn on the server. After listening to your feedback about not liking the current dropdown pvp arena, we have decided to go with a new style of pvp arena consisting of multiple islands around the spawn that are connected by a single bridge which you will be able to walk back across which you are not in combat. This should make pvp more enjoyable.

    (It’s not staying pink! Groaning had very harsh words on this matter.)

    Starter Islands
    The current starter island are being replaced with 7 new islands to accompany The Original and The Original v2. Each island is themed and features a vanilla cobblestone generator by default which will generate different ores depending on your island level.

    Custom Enchantments
    The current enchantment crystal system on the server is being replaced with our new revamped enchantment book system which we recently introduced to Factions. It will feature some of the non-combat oriented enchantments from the Factions server and also some new enchantments which will be unique to Skyblock.

    There are three tiers of enchantments available, Uncommon, Rare and Mythic. You can obtain an enchantment by successfully applying an enchantment book containing the enchantment to an item by dragging and dropping it on to the item in your inventory.

    Every enchantment book has two chances, a success rate and a destroy rate. The success rate is the chance that the book will apply to the item successfully and the destroy rate is the chance that the item will be destroyed if the enchantment fails to apply. The enchantment book will always be destroyed when attempting to enchant regardless of if the success or destroy rate is met.

    [​IMG]

    You can purchase enchantment books via the Enchanter NPC at spawn or by using the /enchanter command. This will allow you to buy generic enchantment tier books for XP that you can uncover to reveal a random enchantment in that tier. Each tier book costs a different amount of XP.

    [​IMG]

    If you want to apply a rare enchantment book to an item that has a high destroy rate but don’t want to risk your item being destroyed, you can protect your item with a White Scroll. The protection will remain until you attempt to apply an enchantment and hit the destroy rate, in which case the item will not be destroyed however the protected status will be removed. White Scrolls are available in crates and for a small fee on the server store.

    [​IMG]

    Crates
    We will be following in the footsteps of the Factions server and replacing the current crate tiers with 3 new crates: Ancient, Divine and Mystical. They all offer more valuable rewards than the old crates and each feature unique items, rather than just higher quantities of the previous crates old system like the old crate tiers.

    Pouches
    We have removed fixed amounts of Money, mcMMO and individual Spawners from the server store. You can instead now buy four different types of pouches which, depending on the type of pouch, will give you a random amount of Money, XP, mcMMO or Spawners within a minium and a maximum when redeemed. There are three tiers of each pouch available, Common, Rare and Legendary. The higher the tier, the more higher the minimum and maximum rewards you will receive.

    [​IMG]

    Jelly Legs
    We have added a new /jellylegs command which will prevent you from taking fall damage while enabled. You can purchase access to this command on the server store.

    Printer Fixes + Printer Mode
    The issues causing players to be kicked while printing a schematic with printer mode enabled due to errors related to sending too many packets we have been fixed.

    We have also added a new printer mode which you can enable with the /printer command. Printer mode will replace your inventory with a paged menu that will allow you to cycle between different items. Every time you attempt to place one of these items with printer mode enabled, you will be charged the price of that item in the shop.

    Spawner Changing
    We will be adding a highly requested feature which will allow you to change multiple spawners in your hand rather than having to change them one by one individually by looking at them.

    Spawn Fly
    All players will now have the ability to fly in the spawn area. This will be restricted to the main spawn island and you will not be able to fly in the pvp islands.

    Hopper Limits
    In order to prevent islands from building large automated mob grinders and to increase competition, we will be limiting all islands to having 500 hoppers placed at once. You will be able to upgrade this limit in bundles to 750, 1000 and 1500 on the server store.

    Content Creators
    We have a new content creator lined up to play on Skyblock after the reset. They will be announced closer to the release, however they should bring a well needed influx of new players to increase the competition for the island top prizes.

    Thanks guys, we hope to see you on the server on Friday! We will be giving out some keys during the first few hours after release :)!

    We have taken everyone's criticism into consideration and after heavy discussions, we've decided to cut the PayPal rewards in half just for last seasons winners instead of not paying them out at all. We can't track who abused the exploit but we made a commitment to the prizes and we will stand by it. Thank you, everyone, for playing Mythcraft. Next season we will be doing weekly payouts so this will never happen again!

    I have to agree with @ewk here, Calculations were done before Wobber was even "Disqualified" or caught so to speak, Was literally done the same day by Harry. And you was nowhere close to his island level. No offense intended but you wouldn't of overtaken him anyway as we did it silently so no-one knew when to place or when we'd calculate the top islands. We did the same thing for Factions to make it a fairer end of world, Without having people hide there blocks / money to place at the end of map which is what you were seemingly going to do.

    Personally I've never called you "Salty" or what not but the above point stands that it was calculated the same day we found out about Wobber not long after the video was uploaded by Sparky and even then Wobber had a higher Island level. I mean you can say something like "You screwed us you should've told us about the calc" or "it should've been a day later" etc but at the end of the day that's why the prizes have been cut. We can't clearly define who abused the bug and who didn't so we're treating the winners to a lower pool prize due to it. We didn't want to reward cheating on the network but giving out no prizes at all would be immoral in our eyes.

    @lego like groaning said, the calculations were done before i was "disqualified" as far as i was aware i was disqualified so it's a shock to me as much as it is to you.

    You can.

    We're definitely bringing it back, We just want the right plugin for the actual network / Code our own plugin.

    Best of luck.
