News
Due to a hardware failure, Skyblock is currently under maintenance.


Edit: Skyblock is down while under maintenance. If you were on Skyblock before it went down, you will NOT be able to connect to the server right now. This is beyond my control. I will remove any posts or comments complaining about not being able to connect. Continued attempts to post said comments will result in a BAN. Continuously moderating the website to remove spam is only slowing down my progress with working on Skyblock.

Edit 2: I've gotten a lot of work done, just need to thoroughly test some of the fixes. Some data WILL be lost, though I can't say how much or who it will affect. It's 2 AM here now and I'm falling asleep writing code, which is probably not a good thing, lol. I'll pick up first thing tomorrow.
[Admin] Silexfox a heh that would explain a few things on why i can get on ^_^ I'll keep watching here for updates ...

Hey!

So I've been quite busy lately working on Skyblock. As I mentioned before, I'm working on a new plugin to replace the old one. This is still something I'm working on and it will take some time, but in the meantime I've added some new things:

New Nether!
I've regenerated the Nether with a custom world generator. It is now 100x cooler. There are multiple biomes, the bedrock ceiling has been removed, there's a lot of different objects like glowstone forests, nether temples, nether houses, fountains, portals, and even rare wither temples. I think the Nether is a much more fun place to be now. =)

Perks!
Players who complete the Skylord challenge will receive the Skylord rank. This is not new. What is new is that I've added prestige levels. If you decide to reset your island and complete the challenges again, completing the Skylord challenge again will earn you a prestige level. Your prestige level is displayed next to your "Skylord" title. Right now prestige levels will earn you new starter islands. You'll earn each of the starter islands from VIP to Nukenin, which is prestige levels 1 to 9.

You can view a list of available starter islands with "/setisland". Clicking on any island name in the list that comes up will teleport you to the island example so you can see what it looks like. Of course, the starter island only applies when you start/restart your island. Change the island with "/setisland <island>"

You can view a list of available titles with "/title". Change your title with "/title <title>"

Genin+ donators can now set a texture pack for their island. The command is "/texturepack <url>", where "<url>" is a URL of a direct download ".zip" file. The texture pack will only work if the file is a valid ".zip" texture pack file. A direct download is a URL that does NOT take you to a download page. For example:
This will take you to a download page and is NOT a valid URL: "https://www.dropbox.com/s/lzmzr3hwgi7ugf0/Soartex_Fanver_Lite.zip?dl=0"
This will NOT take you to a download page and IS a valid URL:
"https://www.dropbox.com/s/lzmzr3hwgi7ugf0/Soartex_Fanver_Lite.zip?dl=1"
As you can probably see, you can turn a dropbox URL into a valid URL simply by changing the "dl=0" to "dl=1" at the end of the URL.
If your URL is too long, try changing it's file-name to something shorter. In the above example, I could change "Soartex_Fanver_Lite.zip" to "SFL.zip" before I upload it to DropBox and the URL would be much shorter.
Texture packs will be displayed to all players on your island who have accepted the server's resource pack popup. I highly recommend accepting the popup as I have future features planned for texture/resource packs.

Referrals!
You can now earn 1 diamond, 1 emerald, and $100 by referring a player to the server! Simply tell the player to run the command "/referredby <YourUsername>" when they join. You'll each receive the rewards. =)

Fixes!
Auto-fisher should work again
Auto-tools shouldn't break on server restarts
TPA effects have been re-added
Challenges are automatically reset when you reset your island. Because of this, I've removed the "/resetchallenges" command.
Voting rewards now check for space in your inventory. If your inventory doesn't have enough space to hold the reward, the reward is dropped on the ground at your location.

Plus a ton of back-end work to improve server performance, fix bugs, and prep new future features! =D

theodoros_1234 The nether isn't that fun because the wither skeletons are owning me. :/
Some updates on the Skyblock lag.

LDeman and I believe we've traced the source of the lag to a hardware problem. The server is now running a new CPU and the lag appears to be gone. If you were experiencing lag in Skyblock previously, please try connecting now. Let me know in the comments if you're still getting timed-out or the server seems unresponsive.

Also, many players were experiencing considerable FPS lag at Spawn. We believe the issue is related to glass panes and have replaced them with glass blocks. We noticed an immediate improvement. Please let me know if you're still experiencing FPS lag in Spawn. =)
Sonic13Boom Hey, this hasn't got anything to do with lag, but i want to reset my challenges, how do i do that?? thanks (ign sonic13b ...
[VIP] xXBakerCatXx im still having a tiny tiny tiny bit of lag
Cheese_Commander That's great! Now we don't have to experience lag!
Many of you have probably noticed the severe lag in Skyblock lately. I've been working on tracking down the source of the lag, as it wasn't apparent in any way. There were no errors and nothing suspicious in the server timings. Eventually, I ended up disabling plugins one at a time until I noticed a difference. In doing so, I believe I've found the cause of the lag and have removed it. For now, I've also disabled some other features that need to be worked on, such as teleporting effects, the drop party chest, and some minor things you probably won't notice missing.

Also, to clarify on the EULA/donating issue: I have a lot of things done to make the server EULA-compliant. There's very little left that needs to be changed. However, I'm not going to apply the changes right away. Mojang seems to have no interest in enforcing the EULA any more than they have in the past. This means that leaving the donation system as it is now essentially doesn't change anything. If we receive notice from Mojang that we need to change our donation system or if I personally feel it needs to be changed, then I will apply the changes. At that point, many donator benefits will be obtainable through two methods: Playtime and voting. This ensures that previous donators keep their benefits. However, future donators will not be able to donate for the same benefits, but instead will receive cosmetic benefits, such as pets, disguises, hats, particles effects, sound effects, etc. Certain things will be available to purchase in the donation shop, such as experience boosts, potion effects, money boosts, etc. that will affect the entire server when one player purchases the item. For now, however, nothing will change.

In other news, it seems the developer of the Skyblock plugin we use, "Ultimate Skyblock", has removed the plugin from its dev page. This means there will be no more updates or bug fixes to the plugin unless the author decides to re-upload it. In the meantime, I am putting a lot of time and effort into creating a custom "PandaCraft Skyblock" plugin. The plugin will be much faster, have less bugs, more features, and be custom tailored to my needs. It is, however, a complicated plugin that will take some time.

Sadly, I have had a lot of things to do outside the realm of the computer lately. Being summer, there's been a lot of family events I'm expected to attend, local festivities, and randomly helping out family members with odd jobs. This has been eating up a lot of my time, so my time on the server and making YouTube videos has suffered from it. For YouTube, I've found recording simple let's plays, such as "Unturned", has been quick and easy, allowing me to upload more videos. On the server, however, I've only been able to fix minor bugs lately. If you're curious about my lack of presence lately, this is why. I'll continue to work as much as I can when I can, so no worries. =)

Lastly, I have plans to add some physical objects to the donation shop soon. These will be things you can buy and receive in the mail, such as PandaCraft merchandise, affiliate products like the NoScope glasses, and something "secret" that I'm working on this week. =P

That's all for now, thanks for reading! =D
