Guide Skyblock Official Guide


Skyblock Official Guide:

Hello and welcome to the Official Snapcraft Skyblock Guide. Within this guide you will find everything you could ever want to know about Skyblock. Hopefully this will answer any of your questions. Learn about the variety of awesome features and how to use them to enhance your own gameplay!

What is Skyblock?
Skyblock is a survival based gamemode, in which you are given a small island surrounded by nothing but empty void! The aim of the Gamemode is to become /is top, by creating farms, mining blocks, making money, and grinding mobs. You can expand your island by blocks from a cobblestone generator, or from /shop.

Do not worry if you fall into the void, you will be teleported back to your island home, or /spawn if you’re visiting another player!

Getting Started:
When you first join the server, do /is create which will give you the option for 4 starter islands to choose from! Read the description and click to make your choice.

You will be greeted by a pleasant fox who will be there to look after you, as long as you look after them! 🦊
The best way to start is do /vote, and using these keys /warp crates to get money and other unique items! Next, create a cobblestone generator in-order to gain blocks and ores. Use these to expand your island, get better tools/armours or sell in /shop to make some money!
Watch this video on how to make a simple cobblestone generator! :lavabucket:

Island Panel and Useful Island Commands:
To view for your re-vamped island panel, do /is. You can find so many new and exciting features here! Click the Spoiler below to view what each of them does!

Teleport to Island:
Teleports back to your island’s home. Do /sethome to change this! You can also do /is go to get back to your island quickly!

Island Upgrades:
We have added some new upgrades to experiment with on /is upgrades. These upgrades can mean the difference between being the top island and one that does not even make the top 10. They are crucial to success, despite perhaps not looking like much on face value. In-order to get the island shards to purchase these upgrades, you need to complete /is missions. The missions are split into two:
Daily missions: Which are updated every 24 hours, and can be completed only once during this time. Hover over the gold horse armour to see what mission needs to be completed.
Levelled missions: These missions will remain the same, but get increasingly harder as you level them up. Once again, hover over the Diamond horse armour to see what mission you need to complete to get the shards to spend on /is upgrades!
HINT: Being able to spawn mobs may make all the difference as the meta is suited to grinding and kill mobs!

Island Level:
Levelling up your island will allow you to stand out from the crowd! You can levelup your island by completing missions in /is missions. You can hover the icon in /is to see: the following information: Your Island Level, XP needed to Levelup and total XP.

Island Settings:
This menu has a lot of customisable options on! You can change what permissions you allow people on your island, and also guests! Be careful that you do not allow visitors or those that you do not trust to have access to vital permissions, like break and place blocks.
Island Bank: Keep your precious money hidden from other players and also your island friends! Or so you do not spend it on /cf! Store money inside the island bank to keep it safe. All transactions made to/from the bank are logged so the leader and admins on the island can view what has been added and taken. This can be accessed also with /island permissions.

Island Warps:
Need some inspiration from other players? Or just nosey? Use this feature to teleport to the island of other players on the server! The player must have set up a visit to their island, so you're welcome to go anywhere! You can see: Owner of Island, the Worth, and Level. Alternatively, you can do /is visit <name> to quickly go to an island. This can be accessed also with /island warps.

Island Top:
More information about this can be found in the section below.

Island Spawners:
Forgot how many spawners you have, or where you placed them? This GUI will tell you all of it! Forgot how many spawners you have, or where you placed them? This GUI will tell you all of it! This can be accessed also with /island spawners.

Island Logs:
Concerned that a trusted member has been doing something they shouldnt? This Island Log tab tells you everything you could ever want to know! If you’re looking for a specific action, click the comparator and sort through which type of log you’re specifically looking for. This can be accessed also with /island logs

Island Vault:
In-order to get access to a vault, you must get the upgrade from /is upgrades called ‘Island Vaults’. You can use this vault to store powerful items in a secure location, where only your island members can access. This can be accessed also with /island vault

Your Island:
This option will allow you easily view who is added onto your island. You can see what role they have, and when they were last online too. By clicking on their head you can easily: kick, promote, or demote the member too.

Island Help:
Looking for a command that you just cannot find anywhere? This will bring up every available /island command we have on the server! They will also be listed in a Spoiler below on this guide so that you can have some explanation on its usage.

Reset Island:
Clicking this option will PERMANENTLY DELETE your island, (after a further warning message). If you choose to do this, we cannot restore your island in anyway, and it will be deleted from our systems. Please exercise caution when using this command and think beforehand.

Island Top:
Island Top is the main way to climb to the top of the server, and hold the most power! This season, we calculate the top island by how much ‘Worth’ an island has. You gain island worth from placing rare ore blocks, like emerald and diamond on your island. As well as having mob spawners! The more expensive the spawner in /shop, the more Island Worth you will get! Each time you place down a spawner you will get a notification in chat about how much worth your island has increased by.

Every so often the /is top leaderboard will update, so keep an eye out on your place! Mine your way to the top by having the most amount of blocks stacked on your island, or the greatest number of mob spawners stacked!

Tokens and Custom Enchants:
We have some exceptional custom enchants to improve your Skyblock Experience! These enchants can be viewed by the /enchanter command. Explore the array of enchants we have available for tools and armour on Snapcraft! Make sure to read all the descriptions, and ask in the chat to see what the community believes to be the most valuable one!
You can acquire tokens by doing /enchantertrade, and exchanging XP or Money for the specified number of tokens. You can also purchase them from our STORE. We will be adding more ways to acquire tokens soon!

Trading, Selling Items and Methods to Make Money:
Selling and trading is the main way to rise to the top on Skyblock. Trade/sell items, money, XP with other players, or sell your items to the in-game shop for the specified price. Click the spoiler below to view all the ways you can become rich!

We have introduced a new chestshop system on Snapcraft! Simply type [shop] on the top row of a sign to begin! Place this sign on the front of a chest, and then right click the sign open and setup your shop.
Make sure you set the sell and buy price correctly. You can choose the item you want to sell or buy, and how much. The red bar along the top is the perfect indicator to see the amount of stock your shop has!
Type /playershops to see items that players are selling at their own playershops! Choose whatever category you are shopping for! You can then use the advertisement star to get your shop out into the community for others to find!

Auction House:
The Auction House is a place where you can sell individual items rather than selling in bulk as done with a chest shop. To list an item on the Auction House, simply do /ah sell <Amount> whilst holding that item. To view the auction house and the items being sold, you use the command /ah.

The number of items you are allowed to list at one time depends on your rank. To list an item, you use the command /is sell <Price>. You can then choose to either put the item up to sell just for that specified price or to allow bidding. To simply sell, run the command click the diamond. The item in your hand for others to purchase for 24 hours. Alternatively, click the emerald to allow players to bid on your item. The minimum bid will be the <Price>. After that, the sale will expire, and you can retrieve the item by doing /ah expired.

/Shop and Sell Wands:
The in-game shop has received a brand new look this season. The meta has also changed completely, allowing for a new experience on Skyblock. Look through the /shop to see what you can sell, and then work on some farms based around what is a good seller! Right click on the item you wish to sell, and then select the amount. Or click on the enderchest which will sell all of the items in your inventory.
If you have farmable items within a chest, you can use a sellwand to instantly sell the contents at the price of the /shop. Sell wands can be obtained through the crates at spawn, /playerlevel or the /goldshop! There is no way to repair your sell wands, and each will have a different amount of uses, depending on where you acquired it from.

Envoys are chests that spawn into the PvP Arena at /warp pvp which, when clicked grant Epic loot to the recipient! You will get a 30 seconds warning in chat before the event starts. You can get: armour, netherite blocks and mob spawners to boost your island value.
If you warp to the PvP Arena you can see when the next envoy event will take place! Watch your back!

Playerlevel and playtimerewards:
More information on both these new features can be found below!

Voting and Crates
Voting is a great way to earn quick, and most importantly FREE rewards! Type /vote in-game, or visit this page to cast your vote on the server. You will be rewarded with a Vote Key which is virtual. To redeem, simply go to /warp crates, right click the vote crate, and then click the ‘Use Virtual Key’ option in the middle. You can let the epic new animation play to see your reward as it appears! Or see what you missed! You now get Snapcraft Gold for FREE by voting for our server. More information on this change can be found on our Discord under the #Announcements section.

We have re-worked our crates, adding brand new items and removing those that are less favourable for our players. We have: Vote Crate, Common Crate, Rare Crate, Legendary Crate, and Rainbow Crate.

Common Crate
Common keys can be obtained through /playerlevel, playtimerewards, /transfer, vote parties and the online STORE. Preview the rewards by left clicking the crate at /warp crates!

Rare Crate
Rare keys can be obtained through /playerlevel, playtimerewards, /goldshop and the online STORE. Preview the rewards by left clicking the crate at /warp crates!

Legendary Crate
The second best key on the server! Legendary keys can be obtained through /playerlevel, playtimerewards, /goldshop and the online STORE. Preview the rewards by left clicking the crate at /warp crates!

Rainbow Crate
The brand new crate on Snapcraft! This crate has some fantastic rewards to boost your gameplay experience. Get spawners, permanent ranks, or the new Infinite Chest to store as many items as you can earn! The Rainbow Key can only be obtained through /goldshop. Preview all the rewards by left clicking the crate at /warp crates!

Playerlevel and Playtimerewards:
These two new features are for the grinders of Skyblock! They are new features for Snapcraft and will be present in our other gamemodes upon reset too!

Player Levels are simple, you complete tasks to level up, and you can showcase your progress in the chat. Access this by /playerlevel.
Want extra rewards for levelling up? Why not purchase the Premium Pass from /goldshop?! With this pass, players will be able to claim extra rewards for every level they complete. Additionally, every few levels will grant players a new level colour and some Snapcraft Gold back!

When you stay online for a certain amount of time, you become eligible to claim Playtime Rewards. Simply use the command ‘/playtimerewards’ to see what rewards are available to you. Rewards may include rare equipment, in-game currency, or custom cosmetic items. You can claim your rewards on a regular basis, such as every hour or every day. You are able to AFK on the server for the time to count towards these challenges, so why not AFK some spawners overnight whilst completing the time required for the next level?!

Online Store/Snapcraft Gold:
Our Online Store still has a variety of ranks, items and perks for our players to choose from. Thank you for all your purchases, we would not be able to have Snapcraft, and continue its development without all of you.

We have also introduced a new currency to Snapcraft, which will be present in all gamemodes upon reset. This is Snapcraft Gold! This unique currency will be available on all servers to make in-game purchases on things such as: tags, crates, McMMO, Enchant Tokens and so much more! You can buy Snapcraft Gold from our Store. This currency is global across the Network, so choose carefully what to spend it on!

Infinite Chest Token, (iChest):
Introducing the newest way to store your items- The iChest! This iChest allows you store an infinite amount of items within! Simply sell the items with the click of your mouse for the /shop price. Purchasing this will give you an iChest Token. You can check if you have a token by typing /ichest.

Once you have a token, get a normal Minecraft Chest, and a sign. Place the sign on the back of the chest and type [ichest] on the top row of the sign. Like this. Once your chest is placed, it will bring collect all of that type of item in 16x255x16 radius from the chest, and also a cool GUI! You can watch this video to see what it looks like, and how easy it is! Simply click the glass panes and select the item you would like to add to the iChest to collect automatically. Click on the item to sell it automatically. There is a 4 hour cooldown before you can sell a different item. You will be able to upgrade this later to reduce the time.

Want to move your iChest? Click into the placed iChest, and then click the Barrier Block at the bottom right corner to safely return the Token to your collection. You can check it was successful by doing /ichest and making sure you have 1 token available. Repeat the process above to place down a new one!

Mob Coins:
We are excited to announce the addition of a new feature to our Minecraft server: mobcoins. From now on, every time you kill a hostile mob, you will earn mobcoins. These virtual coins can be used to purchase a variety of items and rewards at our new transfer shop. Type /transfer to explore the unique rewards that this shop offers. You can get minions, class vouchers, kit vouchers, spawner cases and much more!

The shop will be updated regularly with new items and rewards. You can use the clock at the top of the GUI shop to view when the rewards will be refreshed! So grab your swords and start earning mobcoins!

Mob Heads and Spawner Shop:
Players will have to unlock spawners before they can purchase them from /shop. To unlock each spawner, you will need to collect mob heads through mob kills. The heads can then be used to unlock the next spawner in the upgrade chain. Killing a blaze has a chance to drop a blaze head for example.

You need a certain amount of mob heads before being able to progress to the next spawner rank. To view how many you need, you can do /rankup and it will tell you in chat! Right click on a head to redeem it, and it will be added to /heads. They must be stored in here to /rankup.

Mob heads can also be traded for mobcoins! 10 mob heads is equal to 1 mobcoin. To make this trade, open up the /heads GUI. You can either: left click to trade, shift left click to sell heads, or click the ‘sell all’ cauldron at the bottom middle of the menu. This will exchange all heads in storage for mobcoins.

Additional Commands/Features:
Here is a list of extra features that deserve to be mentioned but did not quite make it into their own category!

McMMO is still part of the game, but with a fresh new update! We have updated to the latest version, including updated styling, menus, and messaging. This will provide players with a completely new look, while still retaining the features that players have come to love.
Players will have the opportunity to enjoy new and improved experiences while still being able to enjoy the features that they are familiar with.

To send a package, simply type "/maildelivery" followed by the player's name, and an inventory will pop up where you can drop your items into. The delivery man will then make sure that all your items are carefully packaged and delivered to your friend in one small package. If you change your mind or want to cancel the delivery, simply click the "Cancel" button.
To pick up your deliveries, type "/deliveries" or visit the Delivery Man at spawn. He will take care of all your incoming packages until you are ready to claim them.

With our new leaderboard system, you'll be able to view your exact position on every leaderboard, whether it's in spawn or the newly introduced leaderboards. This means that you'll be able to see your rank and how far you are from the next level or achievement. Whether it's your Skyblock level, your PvP kills, you'll be able to keep track of your progress in real-time.
You can do /warp leaderboards to view how you shape up against the rest of the server! Keep grinding for #1 on all leaderboards!

Thank you for taking the time to read this guide, we hope it helped! Everytime we add new content this guide will be updated and a #changelog will be made on our Discord.
