    Good evening,

    After a long period of planning and working, we're finally prepared to release our newest update to Skyblock!

    New features include:
    • A market with 36 rentable shops, with enough space to sell pretty much anything
    • Double the challenges, with spooky new rewards
    • A new custom Nether island
    • A PvP arena below the spawn
    • 4 new custom starter islands
    • A complete reset, to give some fairness for all the new features
    • Some things for you to discover!

    This huge update will take place on Saturday, July 15th. Prior to that, at 5:00 PM EST on Monday, July 10th, the Skyblock server will become whitelisted for testing until release, which means the current map will be removed this Monday.


    Alongside our Skyblock release is a brand new Hub, built by the Ruinscraft Build Team! The build team has been hard at work to create new fantastic things for the server, such as new builds around Plots spawn, Skyblock builds, this brand new hub, and so much more. Just look at this sick preview of our new hub:

    Looking forward to the release! Make sure to join us at https://plug.dj/ruinscraft for the release party.

    Will players be able to rent out spaces on their islands as well? Will shop stay the same?

    Nice! I love the spawn.

    How much money is it to rent a shop?

    Renting their spaces out on their own islands? Not really sure if that is practical

    We're organizing shop a bit better so you don't have to go to a million different warps to get a couple different items. Some new items may or may not be added.

    It'll be enough so that not everyone can immediately rent out all the shops, but with a bit of playtime it won't be very difficult to pay for the rent.

    Exciting! Can't wait for the new features, and the Build Team is doing an amazing job both with the new Hub and Skyblock. Looking forward to the update!

    This sounds great! I'm really curious to how the nether is going to turn out. An overhaul to the shop system is needed for sure so I can't wait to see that, personally, I'm looking for a more conventional shop system where you don't have to go to a million different warps, as you said. I'm so excited, I'll start playing again! Also, I'm really down for the reset, it'll provide a fairer chance for everyone and it'll hopefully bring more players to the skyblock server. Overall, can't wait, I think it's gonna be very fun.

    Not many have played for at least a month or two, as we said an update was coming soon -- many like @_Kaasblokje_ said that they were waiting for the update

    Skyblock had pretty good numbers before that
