List of Various Plugin Mechanics

Here we will have a list of the way things work in game that are a bit different than what you may be used to. At some point this may be migrated to a wiki styled page, but for now it will be this thread. We will create a reply for each individual plugin, and this main post will serve as the index.

SkyBlock Mechanics:

Most if not all of this information can be found at /warp tutorial


Nether terraforming: Nether terraforming is the act of breaking blocks in the nether and them having a percentage chance to spawn more blocks. The tool that you use changes the chance of terraforming. Which tool is best will be up to you to find out :). This can be used to gather large amounts of certain blocks.
The following blocks can be terraformed:

  • sand
  • red sand
  • nether rack
  • soul sand
  • glowstone
  • nether quartz ore
  • gravel
Slime spawning: Slimes spawn exactly as they would in vanilla Minecraft. They either spawn at below level 40 regardless of light level in a slime chunk or between 50 and 70 in a swamp biome with less than light level 7. To see if you have any slime chunks, you can stand on your island and type /slime. To see what chunk you are currently at, type /chunk. If you do not have any slime chunks (the chance is low but still there), you unlock the slime biome via the Coveter rank up challenge.

Mob Spawning: Passive and aggressive mobs should spawn like they do in vanilla Minecraft. Please not that there are some exceptions to spawning. Examples of those exceptions are wither skeletons, blazes, guardians, etc. Mobs can also be spawned via mob spawners. Some spawners still need to meet certain requirements to spawn the mobs. If you are having trouble with a specific spawner, either ask for help in game or try to find the answer online. The spawner plugin we use is EpicSpawners.

Nether Mobs: Wither skeletons and blazes do not have a natural way of spawning if there is not a nether fortress. So the creator of uSkyBlock added a mechanic to allow the mobs to spawn. In order to get wither skeletons and blazes to spawn, you simply need to build a nether brick platform in the nether.

Guardians Spawning: Guardians have 2 ways of spawning. The first is spawning via a spawner. The second way is they will spawn in ocean or deep ocean biomes in water covered by a layer of prismarine bricks.


Island PVP: Island pvp can be enabled via /ispvp <enable/disable> and can be check with /ispvp status. If you teleport to somebodies island that has pvp enabled, it will inform you in chat and give you 5 seconds of invulnerability. PVP status can only be changed every 5 minutes.

BackPacks

Back packs are a "virtual storage" designed to give you up to 6 extra rows of storage. There are a total of 6 upgrades as well as unlocking the base backpack. Please note that unless you have the magic upgrade, you will drop the items in your backpack upon death.

Base BackPack: Aquired through voting 1 time

BackPack Upgrade 1/5:
Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Vote Crate


BackPack Upgrade 2/5: Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Lucky Crate

BackPack Upgrade 3/5: Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Iron Crate

BackPack Upgrade 4/5: Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Gold Crate

BackPack Upgrade 5/5: Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Diamond Crate

BackPack Magic Upgrade: Aquired as a Legendary reward in the Emerald Crate

Each upgrade simply add 1 row (9 slots) to your backpack. You do not need to have 1/5 to use 2/5. For instance, if you have upgrade 2/5 and have voted to get the base backpack, you will have 2 rows. Unlocking more upgrades will simply add more rows.

Player Shops

We strongly support player shops and the economy revolving around such. For this reason, we have created bulletin boards in spawn. To get to the bulletin boards, use /warp shops.
The bulletin boards have a few rules. They are as followed:

  • Boards are not to be used for trash talking or insulting others
  • All boards must follow the server rules. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • Server related content only. No advertising content out of the server.
  • All signs must be in English
The boards are meant to be used to direct people to your shop on your island. Make sure you have a sign informing them how to get to your island (ensure your warp is open as well). You can also advertise activities your island has to offer people. The boards are not restricted to only shop islands. If you want to advertise something such as public spawners on your island, that is perfectly acceptable.
