    Hey Arcadians!

    We are very excited to announce the official release of SkyBlock Season 7! Just like the KitPvP reset, we have listened to all of the community's feedback and came up with what we think will be the best season of SkyBlock yet. Let's get right into the news!

    [​IMG]

    What happens during a reset?

    A server reset is when player statistics are cleared to make way for a new season, where everyone can start again and progress together. We reset servers after they've been running for a long time, we do this as it gives newer players a chance to catch up with already existing players, and for existing players to have a fresh start after being burnt out from previous seasons. As well as this it allows the development team to introduce new updates, changes and fixes altogether.

    What do you lose in a reset?

    Progress is reset, this means:
    Your island progression and builds
    Your money balance
    Your kills and deaths
    Your mcmmo
    Your EXP and gems
    Your enderchests, PVs and inventories
    Your ranks, titles, and purchased kits are kept.

    If you have any questions on what is kept or lost and you don't see it on this list, feel free to ask a staff member!

    New Spawn and Island Designs

    As we always do for resets, we have a new spawn for you guys to enjoy! Not only do we have a new spawn for you to explore and have fun on, but we also have new islands for you to build, level up and play on!

    [​IMG]

    We have also designed some new island designs for you to pick and chose when starting up your island. If you have any other island suggestions then feel free to make a suggestion here.

    New Shop Additions and Changes

    Secret Blocks - Donor Shop

    The secret blocks section consists of blocks that aren’t officially in Minecraft, but can be used through WorldEdit and such. For example, 6 sided logs, smooth slabs, mushroom blocks. Purchase secret blocks with /secret or /scb.

    Perks Master

    Ever wanted to not lose any hunger or have someone else sort your chest for you? Well, now you can buy a perk from the Perks section in /shop! This new addition allows you to buy perks from spawn ranging from prices of 7.5mil to 50mil. You can also now buy these perks on the store ( http://store.arcadianmc.com/ ) too.


    [​IMG]


    Donor Shop Changes
    • Removed ores and ore blocks
    • Removed gapples
    • Removed lily pads
    • Removed tripwire
    • Moved brick and hardened clay to building blocks
    • Moved cobweb to random blocks
    • Moved wither skull to random blocks
    • Moved guardian spawner to spawners

    Other Shop Changes
    • Added a redstone section
    • Various changes to buy/sell prices

    Spawn NPC Changes
    • Blacksmith has been merged with the Gem Merchant, so renaming is now an option in the gem menu.
    • Head hunter has been combined with the Bounty NPC.
      • Click the emerald at the top to see a list of all bounties
      • Players drop two heads when killed, a bounty head (if they have a bounty) and the normal head hunting head.
      • Place these heads into the bounty GUI to claim your head hunting reward and bounty rewards at the same time!

    Stacked Spawners

    To make the use of spawners that little easier, we have added a completely new spawner type called stacked spawners. All information about them is listed below.

    • This new system is named “stacked spawners” to differentiate them from their older sibling, the forged spawners. Forged spawners still exist and can still be obtained from crates.
    • Stacked spawners are a much easier way to stack and upgrade spawners, and offer you a lot more control over your spawners.
    • Simply right-click a normal spawner while holding another spawner of the same type - for instance a cow spawner. You now have a stacked spawner, which you can right-click to bring up the upgrades and info menu for.
    • You can upgrade the following aspects of your stacked spawners:
      • Spawner Limit - increases the amount of spawners you can stack
      • Spawn Rate - increases how fast the mobs spawn
      • Spawn Count - increases how many mobs spawn
      • Drop Count - increases the drop multiplier
      • Filtered Drops - decreases the amount of unwanted drops
    • You can upgrade the spawners by using tokens, which will be obtained the same way you do on prison - via the gem merchant.

    Gambling Games

    One of the beloved things added to the KitPvP reset was some gambling games so keep up with your gambling habits, we have added some new gambling games to SkyBlock too.
    • Coinflips
      • The same as KitPvP (/coinflip).
    • Raffle
      • Every 2 hours there is a raffle. Players buy raffle tickets for $10,000 per and after thirty minutes a lucky person wins the entire pool! No GUI, but you can enter using /rf join and /rf gives you some more information about the raffle.
    • Rock Paper Scissors
      • Play your friend in a game of rock-paper-scissors!
      • Winner wins the bet. In the case of a tie, both players get their money back.
      • Use /rps or /rockpaperscisors to play.

    [​IMG]

    • Lottery
      • The same as KitPvP (/lottery).
    [​IMG]

    General Changes

    Multi-Page ArcHoppers
    • ArcHoppers now have three pages - which gives you 3x54 slots of space!
    • ArcHoppers now move 2 stacks of items every 5 seconds
    [​IMG]


    Welcome Message
    This message will show how many people have logged in every time a new player joins for the first time. Just like on Prison.


    Auction House Changes
    Thank you to @FireFall312 for suggesting the idea to show the items that you sold during your time offline or in /afk. You can check out his suggestion here.


    Crates
    Added a dragon egg to uncommon crates and up (lowest percent chance of getting it in the uncommon crate but slightly higher chance in other crates), as well as other various changes.


    Commands
    To make your crafting life easier we have added a new command called /make which simplifies crafting different items as a perk for the SkyLord rank. This idea was suggested by @greekmythguy, so keep the suggestions comin'!

    [​IMG]


    Buycraft Items
    • Unbreakable Shovel ($19.99)
      • Same concept as unbreakable pickaxes but with a diamond shovel.
      • Efficiency V and Unbreaking infinity.
    [​IMG]


    Island Info
    The command /is info [name] or /is info pops up a handy GUI displaying information about your island or other player’s islands. It displays information about your island such as:
    • How many [x] island level blocks (iron, emerald, etc).
    • How many [x] spawners.
    • How much [x] cactus.
    [​IMG]


    Spawner Progression

    Spawners are now organized in tiers. Instead of being able to buy any spawners you want immediately, you will have to unlock them with mob heads from the previous tier. For example, SkyLords need three pig, cow, sheep or chicken heads to unlock zombie/cave spider/spider spawners. There is a 4% chance of a mob head dropping when you kill a mob.

    If a player hasn’t unlocked a specific tier of spawner then they can’t mine the spawner on that level. You will also be charged a 20% fee to place spawners that you don’t have unlocked.

    Daily Reward Streaks
    You can now gain better prizes when claiming your daily reward if you claim them on a daily basis. As soon as you stop or forget to claim your daily rewards then your streak will be lost - and you will have to start over again! So keep up the streak for some juicy rewards!

    [​IMG]


    Challenges
    When challenges were implemented to Prison you guys loved them so we have now added some new ones to SkyBlock! Check out the new challenges you can try and complete as shown below.
