Congrats to the winners of the Cloudy Visions event!
1st: stgclilly 2nd: JetTG 3rd: LakeTahoe
Thanks to everyone who joined in the event!
Today is the start of something special that we’re hoping to do often. I’m excited to announce a brand new Skyblock event, titled Cloudy Visions!
In Cloudy Visions, you are given 8 days to build your own fantasy Skyblock island from scratch. Think of it like constructing the most beautiful starting island that you could possibly survive on. You could edit your spawn island to make it however beautiful you want it, or you could simply build your own fantasy island. The island can be any size and shape you want, as long as it is natural and beautiful.
To create the natural beauty your island will require, you will have to collect supplies in the Skyblock manner - by completing challenges, farming materials, and buying items at the shop - making it a unique experience to collect the supplies...
For a while, we've wanted to give something more to our donators. They are the ones who keep our server up and running, and we appreciate them dearly for what they've done for us.
As a result, we've spent a significant amount of time to revamp our donation tiers. We hope you will like what we have added. New features include merging of plots, new kits, more plot customization, generation of natural biomes, and more!
We also would like to introduce our new VIP8 rank!
These new features will go into effect on Saturday, January 7th. For now, you can preorder our VIP8 rank while the sale and charity goal are still going on. This is a purely cosmetic rank (you will have the name and nothing else) until our release on January 7th.
Last year, we raised an astounding $622.50 for Toys for Tots, a charity that brings toys to children in need during the holiday season. This year, we have chosen to do another charity event for Child's Play Charity. Child's Play improves the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through video games. We commit to donating 20% of any purchases in our webstore though January 1st! Our goal is to raise $300 to be donated to Child's Play. If we can reach this goal, we will be re-launching KitPVP back to Ruinscraft!
I encourage everyone to participate or even donate on your own. Let's do some good this holiday season. As always, keep in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook.
Firstly, instead of giving away three different ranks at three different times on the same day, we will be giving away one rank at one time on three different days. These days will be December 10th, December 17th, and December 24th. However, on the 24th, we will be giving away two VIP rank upgrades, meaning that if you win this giveaway as a member, you will be upgraded to VIP 2! The times for these giveaways have been undecided at the moment.
In order to enter, you simply need to be on the Hub server during the specified time for each date. Each winner will be given a rank upgrade to VIP 1. If you already have a VIP rank, then you will be upgraded to the next rank. If you already have the maximum rank, then you may...
We are glad to announce that our new Skyblock server has been officially released. You can access the server by typing /skyblock or by using the portal in the new hub server. A thread containing the current features and commands on the Skyblock server will be posted on a separate thread.
Many different members of our staff team were involved in the making of this server, however, we would like to give a special thanks to @Concurrence for spending many hours in the development of the server, and to @Grantdrew for building the server spawn and custom island.
Over the past couple of months there have been many suggestions to add more servers to our network. I am delighted to announce that we will be honoring your requests and adding Skyblock to the Ruinscraft Network on October 31st!
Handmade by our staff team, the server will feature many of the typical Skyblock elements as well as ones totally unique to Ruinscraft. You can look forward to playing on custom islands, enjoying a balanced economy, completing challenges on your island, and so much more.
We look forward to bringing the server to all of you on October 31st. A big thanks goes out to the whole Ruinscraft staff team for making this possible!
