Hello UniverseMC, As most of you guys know by now we have been promising a new map of SkyBlock for a little while now and we’re proud to announce we have finally finished it and we’re ready to release season 7. In this post, I will try my best to explain the new season and its new features for you guys. This season we have gone all in with new features we hope you guys will enjoy and we have listened to some of you guys’ suggestions with some of the stuff we have added. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=NEW FEATURES-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Shards (/shards) We’ve replaced tokens with shards. How do you earn shards? You can earn shards by killing mobs, crates, buycraft store or by using shard generators. What are shard generators? Shard generators generate shards. These shards are dropped in a 3-block radius around the generator itself. Where can I use shards? Entering /shard shop will open an exclusive shop. This shop rotates every third hour. In total there are two different shard shops but we're planning on adding more. Player shops (Signs) Yes, you can now create your own player shops. Player shops are free to create for everyone. There are several examples at spawn. Gifting (/gift) Players can gift others by using /gift <player>. The item you send is the item you’re holding in your own hand. You cannot gift yourself. The command has a cooldown. Only Elite and up can open gifts. There’s also a small delay between gifting players. You can open/view your gifts by using /gift menu or (/menu and enter the gifting menu) Trails (/trail) Trails are basically signals or marks of objects left behind the passage of the player. We plan on adding more detailed trails after we’ve collected some more data. Reclaim (/reclaim <rank>) With reclaims, you can get a boost start! Reclaims are only available for a week (starting from - start of the world). Typing /reclaim will open a GUI where you can select your package or type /reclaim <yourRank> to claim it. Settings (/settings) Settings lets you for an example disable gifting (elite rank or above required) or hide the scoreboard. New crate We’ve added a new crate Neptune Unique player join message You can enable a unique player join message which gets broadcasted every time you join the server (sky rank or above required). Sellwands The new sellwands are integrated with the shop plugin which means that you’d be able to sell everything that has a sell price on the shop. Villager spawners and Silverfish spawners We have added a new spawner which is the silverfish spawner, the silverfish will be dropping diamonds on death. Villagers have been removed from the shop and moved to the Shard shop and you will now only be able to get them through the shard shop. Silverfish spawners are also only obtainable through shard shop. General changes for Neptune / Skyblock: New color scheme New spawn New PvP area New name → Neptune 8 new starter islands Elite and up has access to /afk Everyone has access to /help & /skull New economy Wool- and glass shop added Boosters integrated with sellwands Boosters integrated with customdrops Silverfishes drops 1-2 diamonds on death Minions added close to end season Boosters added close to end season Hopper limit to each island. The default is 500 and it's possible to extend thru our buycraft. Player shop limit to each player. The default is 10 and it's possible to extend thru our buycraft. Temporary cooldown on /is to prevent lag. Bug fixes for Neptune / Skyblock: Fly is enabled on login.
