    Island Top Values
    Unvaluable blocks have been removed from /is topvalues.
    New items have been added to /is topvalues to introduce new strategies for grinding!

    • [​IMG]
    You can no longer BUY blocks in the /is topvalues menu from the /shop
    • Mineral blocks can be obtained through mining and converting them to blocks with a block wand (you will no longer be able to buy them from /shop)
    • Obsidian can be obtained by breaking sugar cane - /achievements
    • Prismarine can be obtained by converting the drops from guardian spawners with a block wand
    • Haybales can be obtained by farming and converting wheat with a block wand
    • Sponges can be obtained through 3 challenges in /challenges

    Challenges Overhaul
    The challenges menu has been cleaned out of challenges that served no purpose.
    New Challenges have been added to encourage farming and give you /is top blocks.

    • [​IMG]
    The challenges have been split to 3 levels: Easy, Medium, Hard

    New Achievements
    The achivements system has been revamped. View all achievements available with /ach
    New achievements have been added, and old/useless achievements have been removed

    • [​IMG]
    The achievements system will continue to grow over time with more ahievements weekly!

    Drill Picakaxes
    This enchant/item has been controversial on skyblock. We will be trying something different for the reset. The item/pickaxe been removd from crates and the store.

    There are 2 ways to obtain Drill pickaxes:

    • Breaking 500,000 sugar cane
    • Killing 50,000 Blazes
    This will definately change in the future but it is a good start to promote farming and manual grinding. Track your progress with /achievements. The Drill Pickaxe will also now take 50% durability of the extra blocks it breaks.

    Economy
    The following items have been changed:
    • Removed ability to buy minerals and mineral blocks
    • Obsidian generator removed
    • Prismarine crystal generator removed
    • Carrot, Potato, Wheat, Sugarcane, Cactus and Netherstalk is no longer buyable. You will find them in your starter chest
    • Sell value of farming items increased (carrot, potato, wheat, sugarcane, cactus and netherstalk)
    • Reduced guardian spawner price
    • Increased blaze spawners to match iron golem price
    • Spawner changing cost for blaze and iron golem spawners is 90% of /shop price
    • Sell value of blaze rod increased
    • Increased blaze and iron golem heads sell value in /merchant
    • Reduced item generator prices in /shop by 50%
    SkyBlock Changes
    • Added /is showchunk or /is sc - This allows you to see an outline of the chunk you are in.
    • Added /is banlist or /is bans - This allows you to view a list of players banned from your island
    • Trusted members can now break armorstands
    • The Hurting Monsters toggle in /is settings has been fixed.
    • Challenges will no longer reset if you reset your island
    • Buffed starter items in the starter chest to help with the new economy/game strategy
    • Fixed default spawner cap per island being 5 spawners, it is now 100 spawners

    Could you specify how many months of Payouts itll be? im guessing 2 or 3 but planning on what to do and when to do it involves a lot on future planning and knowing when the map ends for good is a big part of that.

    Interesting change log. Only question though about the Drill Picks...

    For the 50k Blaze kills, would the Stack Slayer work or just by manual killing?

    I'm sad about reset, I was just starting to add events on my island. I think that the reset should be a little bit further apart.
