    Neptune Dimension - Season 18
    Release: 9TH of May at 1PM EST


    Hello Astronauts,

    For this upcoming season we did a full revamp of the economy and really brought the grinding back to Neptune.

    Here is a list of all of the features we've added for Season 18.

    New Server appearance

    For season 18 we've brought in an incredible new space-themed spawn.

    Minion Changes
    To kick off this season's massive economy revamp we are introducing one of our biggest new features, the minion limit. Every island this season will only be allowed a maximum of 10 farmer minions. Along with this, the prices of farmer minions have changed in the token shop to be more expensive ultimately making farming cane more of a better option.

    Voting Changes
    One of the biggest changes to this season is voting. Midway through the previous season of Neptune we decided to allow voting on alts, however for this upcoming season you will no longer be able to vote on alt accounts. Upon voting you will now only receive 3,000 tokens per vote instead of the old 5,000.


    Island Size Changes
    For this upcoming season of Neptune the maximum island size will be changed to 10 members maximum.

    Shard Shop
    For this season of Neptune, we've added a COMPLETE fresh cycle of items to the shard shop! These new items inside of the shard shop will give new uses for shards and make them worth holding onto!


    Cavern Revamp

    When Neptune first released in season 17 the cavern was too OP, then was heavily nerfed midseason. This obviously caused very bad feedback from the community. For this upcoming season of Neptune, we have ensured that the cavern is at a much more stable position and won't hurt the economy, while still being worth grinding for.

    Token Changes

    For this season of Neptune, we've done quite a few changes with tokens. When mining sugarcane you will now receive up to 30 tokens instead of 20. Another new change with tokens is whilst mining (more specifically inside of the mining realm) you can receive upwards of 300 tokens per ore you mine!

    Map Kit Changes

    One of the core issues with the economy on Neptune is the excessive amount of map kits that all of the active players have. The management team made the hard decision to remove ALL old vouchers from the map kits and only leave the vouchers inside of the map18 and map17 GKIT. From this season and on, the only way to obtain map gkits will be through the store to ensure that the economy doesn't become inflated from them again.

    Printer Mode

    For this season of Neptune, we are finally ready to announce that we will be releasing Printer Mode! Printer mode will put you into creative mode allowing you to print much more efficiently! Along with this, more blocks will be available to be used to allow you to build incredible structures! Along with this, we've added support for Badlion printer!

    Armor Changes

    It was made aware to the management team that diamond armor breaks extremely fast compared to suits (unbreakable). For this upcoming season, we've made armor break about 5x as slow as it was previously. This will allow PVPING with regular armor sets much more practical and balanced.

    Generator Changes

    For this upcoming season of Neptune, we've done quite a few changes to generators. Here are the following changes we've done to generators;


      • Made shard generators cost less to upgrade
      • Made shard generators give more shards faster​
    Cane top Rewards

    For this season of Neptune, we've added Cane top rewards. Whoever mines the most sugarcane throughout the map of Neptune will receive $10 PayPal & $10 BuyCraft. You can check canetop by doing /stats in-game!


    What are IS-TOP prizes?
    The payouts for this season will be the following:
    1. $125 Paypal & $25 Buycraft WEEKLY
    2. $40 Buycraft WEEKLY
    3. $25 Buycraft WEEKLY



    I hope everyone is excited about this upcoming season for Neptune. Here is the basic information needed to help make sure you are ready for release!
    SOTW: May 9TH at 1 PM EST
    90% off sale on the server release
    Thanks, UniverseMC Management Team

    most likely wont be playing because skyblock is boring and im already playing mars but theres a couple questionable changes like:

    what if you paid for a map kit only because it had the vouchers?
    will shard shop break like 2 days into the map and not rotate like usual? will it still look ugly?
    did /sell hand and selling quartz finally get fixed?
    also wtf is up with payouts? no paypal for 2nd and 3rd? definitely wont be playing because of this.

    You need to split payouts 1-3 but other than that looks like the best season I have seen in a while. Also in the meeting someone mentioned a CApTcHa to catch scripting. Will you be adding it to this season?

    Yes, I will get this done. Thanks for mentioning this


    This won't be allowed, and if someone is ever caught doing this the punishment would be immense.

    Hey Anonymous, thanks for finally listening to our suggestions for once. A few questions and notes.

    1. With armor now breaking 5x as slow, does this mean that suits are obsolete? I'm not sure if its a bug, but suits don't take normal durability damage, however thorns will snap the suit armor very quickly. If this is a bug, will it be fixed for SOTW?

    2. Why are cane payouts so low? Judging by the changes made to Season 18, It feels that scane and mining will be main eco. If suger cane is something that you have to grind out hard, why not pay more for it? It just feels that 10$ doesn't do it justice the amount of work you have to put in.

    3. With Map Gkits, for Season 19, will you still be able to use Map17 gkit? Or will they be changed to only the current and 1 past season?

    4. On Voting changes, why are they now giving shards instead of tokens? I feel like this nerf on top of the 5000 to 3000 nerf makes voting practically useless.

    5. With Shards becoming less useless, is the shop going to have actual good items in it? Last season the shard shop was pretty useless, as 10-15k shards for spawners was way too much, and this was the only good item you could buy.

    6. How much are farmers costing now? 400k tokens was a good balanced price, making them hard to get but not impossible. I feel that a large jump in price will make these very hard to obtain, and could force them into obsoleteness.

    1. Suits are already obselete, it takes two hits from a Strength II Sharp 8 to kill a suit
    2. Payouts used to be higher ($250 paypal for #1), Anon doesn't have enough money to do $25 cane top anymore
    3. You can still use old map Gkits but they were nerfed heavily
    4. It's a typo, voting gives 3K tokens not shards
    5. the point is to make farmers near unobtainable

    1. Even with armor breaking 5x as slow, it still will eventually break so suits will still be used.

    2. Cane payouts are low for this first season while we make sure people are liking this eco, if it goes good it'll be upped

    3. You'll be able to use all kits, but the vouchers (ctf,alien invasion,ext) are removed from them

    4. It's tokens, not shards from voting just made a tpo

    5. Yes, shard shop will have better items in it now

    6. Farmer minions are 600k, we want the economy to go back to the old days where people have to farm to win, not an automated minion war if that makes sense.

    1. Suits got buffed ;)
    2. Read above
    3. Thanks for the clarification.
    4. Got that
    5. Farmers shouldn't be near unobtainable... They should still be obtainable. I admit, last season we had 60+ farmer minions... a bit op, but I still think that they should be somewhat achievable. (Read above)
