    Congrats to the winners of the Cloudy Visions event!

    1st: stgclilly
    2nd: JetTG
    3rd: LakeTahoe

    Thanks to everyone who joined in the event!

    --------

    Hey guys,

    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 necessary to make a natural, beautiful island.

    This challenge will last from Saturday, January 28th to Sunday, February 5th, giving you 8 days to perfect your custom island. Anyone who joins beginning Jan. 28th will be entered into the contest. You do not have to reset your island to join the contest, you can build your fantasy island with your other builds. Rewards will only go towards one person - if multiple people construct one island, the island owner will receive credit. You can only build or help build a single island. If someone constructs multiple islands for their friends, or cheats in any way, they will be disqualified. Winners will be announced in the afternoon Sunday!

    1st place rewards:
    1 Nether Star
    $25,000 ingame money
    $25 store credit

    2nd place rewards:
    $15,000 ingame money
    $15 store credit

    3rd place rewards:
    $8,000 ingame money
    $10 store credit

    Good luck, and let your cloudy visions become reality!

    You can build it anywhere you want on your existing island, or if you still have your old island, you can edit it however you want =)

    Do we get to claim another island to do this, or do we continue it on our own?

    You can construct a new island with your existing builds if you'd like.

    Entirely from scratch, from your own resources - you must build the island on Skyblock, in your island area. You can also edit your own starting island to make a custom-looking one.

    You just have to join the Skyblock server to be entered into the contest.

    The owner of the island receives credit for whatever island is created. If you help someone create their island, you can't create your own - you can only build or help build 1 island.

    So if I was the only person that built the "fake island" Ghasty would get all rewards?

    Will the results be released on the forums?
    Can you win if you're not on the server at the time?
    Do you look at every single island, or do we need to tell you to look at ours? And if the latter, what time will you be reviewing the islands?
