New Skyblock Core
Since Skyblock Season 2, we have been running the same Skyblock Core which has served us pretty well. However, it has many problems including an imperfect Island TOP calculation system and many other things annoying for us to moderate the server.
At the beginning of Season 5, we had one of our developers work on a fully-custom 1.16 Competitive Skyblock Core. Unlike any other, this one is the only one like this in existence and will not be found anywhere (as it is based off 1.8 competitive skyblock server cores). It is constructed using a library used on Factions Servers to ensure it has top-notch code and is lag free. Myself and @Terminated have made numerous revisions, tweaks and converted all of GreekSB's custom plugins which depended on our old Core to our new core. After dozens of hours we have implemented every core feature across to ensure this brings the smoothest gameplay possible.
Unfortunately, a few features were lost in this migration (block count menu per-island and crop growth multipliers) - We decided not to add these back to make the experience more enjoyable through secrecy of people's methods and to stop the Cactus Growth Rate from breaking.
Upgradeable Harvester Hoes and Axes have been added to Skyblock Greek as a replacement for our current system to allow for our new Sugarcane economy to be as simple as possible. After mining a certain amount of sugar cane, melon or pumpkin you have an option to then upgrade your tool for some money.
These will be obtainable through a number of ways, including:
Boosters have been added to Blaze Skyblock! Currently, you can get Boosters for EXP, Money and Tokens (Personal, Global and Island based) allowing for a slight increase in how much you get on each sale / kill (etc).
Want to view what boosters are active? Type /boosters on Skyblock at any time and it will show your Global, Personal and Island Boosters for each of the three types listed above.
We have changed out our previous Chat Race plugin for a brand-new and much more stable experience which directly integrates with our new core. This has two major benefits over our previous system:
/reaction time --> See when the next reaction will be happening
/reaction top --> See the player who has the most reactions on the server
This Reactions plugin also allows us to give out a plethora of new rewards, including Island Worth in the future.
Player Vault Overhaul
We have also changed out our PV system on the server for a new experience which also integrates with our core. This PlayerVaults system is almost the same as our old one - however - It now has a gui to see all your PVs! Type /pv to see all your PVs, and the size of each one.
This also allows for us to have PlayerVaults as "pages", making it quicker and eaiser to look through all your vaults.
We have made a number of changes to Skyblock Season 7s Economy. Here is a link to an updated Eco Sheet for all players to view. Any edits done between now and the release will also be noted here:
