    In my opinion, Skyblock really sucks right now. It doesn't have a lot of the cool features the old Skyblock had, and I have a few very doable suggestions that will definitely improve the current Skyblock.

    1. Allow /setwarp to VIP+

    /setwarp was a very important command. It had very many uses to it. People used it to set their warp for their shop- and a lot of people like me had these creative warp names for their shop. (example: mine was /warp shopsicles, combining shop and my username, hopsicles). We can't really do that anymore other than giving the description to the [Welcome] sign. It's not really the same though.

    I also used it for my own personal reasons. My island was HUGE, and it was hard to get into some of the buildings/areas without a warp I set. We had a warp for the main island, our storage room, the lower level with all the farms, inside of mob grinders, and much more. Now, we can only set ONE warp. And if we havea shop then it already takes up the spot. We really do need /setwarp in Skyblock.

    2. Enable hoppers?

    This is seriously confusing to me why this is even a problem. Hoppers are so crucial- any automated farm needs them. And now we have to make the regular farms? It was so cool to make these awesome redstone creations that all I needed to do was press a button and it farmed all my crops for me. All I had to do was replant. And now we can't have that? It doesn't make sense. Someone told me it messes with plugins, but that doesn't make sense either because it's literally just another Minecraft block. That'd be like saying cobblestone messes with plugins..

    3. Give more of an incentive to make your own physical shop

    Like I said before, shops were so cool to have. I loved checking out what other people did with their shops, everybody had one. Now that there's /shop, there's not much of a need for shops anymore. And it really stinks. The sell feature on /shop should definitely be removed. And the buy prices should be raised greatly so it's only a last resort (similar to how the spawn shop was on old skyblock).

    I used to spend so much time farming resources to put in my shop. I spent hours making things like pumpkin pies, cakes, and other random items just to restock my shop. People always came back to it because they knew I was great at restocking. And seeing that shops aren't the popular thing anymore really saddens me. I've been looking through my old threads featuring my island, and I was just thinking how much more fun I had then.





    I hope you agree with my suggestions, and hopefully they'll be added to Skyblock.

    We need to enable villagers and golems and add grass/dirt/sand to the /shop (but not sellable).

    I agree with all of these ideas. I feel like the current Skyblock is more of just grinding and selling to make your way to the top, which gets boring after a while. I think with grass, dirt, sand, and other island materials in the shop, people would want to make an actual island, which takes longer and is a lot more fun than grinding all day.

    Oh, yes!
    I never played skyblock before reset. That'd be cool though!

    Isn't this not allowed? I get there's still donor perks but I'm sure why

    I don't really see how it gives the donor an advantage

    I agree with all of this, especially with allowing players to set warps. :)

    It's not against the EULA because technically VIP+ donor ranks can make warps for non donors so there is no unfair advantage.

    I've asked about having hoppers enabled and there are apparently still ways for individuals to duplicate items with them.

    ask yourself how they had them before the reset then?
    we desperately need hoppers. it may be because of the nether but im pretty sure everyone can live without the nether because pigmen still come through portals if they are large enough.


    also kits. cyp said ages ago he was getting a 'plugin made' that would allow everyone to have their kits back - which clearly hasnt happened


    no /setwarp. i like /is warp (but i feel like it should only be active if the player is online or it is automatically deleted after 7d of inactivity - bc the pages are flooded).
    /setwarp was just abused with pages and pages of stuff like
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FaNTASYISCOOL!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FANTASYISCOOL!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FANTASY IS COOL!
    and once you delete your island/reset they aren't active anymore.

    This is a suggestion thread not a place to complain about what the owners aren't doing.
    Please stay on topic and try to keep the side conversations to a minimum.
