    Dear CubeCraft staff,

    Could the price of certain items please be reduced in the server? Because the prices are way too high compared to sell prices and the amount of points you get when you vote (mostly the votes don't even work!).

    The prices are high to inspire you to work hard and earn whatever it is you're buying. Obviously diamonds cost a ton because A. they're unobtainable otherwise and B. they're the best material in the game. If these items were cheap, everyone would have everything and the economy would be in the toilet. I recommend farming a ton of trees and selling the saplings. They're worth a pretty good amount and it'll also get you a ton of wood for crafting, building, and smelting.

    But then make it so that we can sell all or multiple saplings at a time, I have got a gigantic treefarm on my island and I have stacks of saplings, but I have to sell them one by one.

    Preach it, brother. They made it that way for a little while but changed it. I'm not really sure why they did, considering it made so many people happy. Maybe they'll change it back in the future?

    Also the staff have no control over prices (I assume.) The owners are the ones who control that kind of thing. If you want a certain person to respond to a message or thread, you should tag them like this

    It was to avoid people from farming an insane amount of useless items and selling them all in bulk, so they would get tons of points too easily, which would have thrown the economy in the toilet, as you say.

    Warning: The following scenario contains a lot of math, which may damage ones brain. Please ignore the following scenario if allergic to math, or are as intelligent as a chicken.
    Scenario: Someone such as myself, with a 100x100 tree farm, which is only half done, does a 90 minute woodcutting run. They get a total of 6 stacks of saplings, and 38 stacks of wood. (True scenario) saplings sell for 8 points per piece, or 512 points per stack. 512 x 6 = 3,072 points from the saplings alone. Wood is 2 points per log, or 128 points per stack. 128 x 38 = 4,864 points. Add them together, you have an insane total of 7,936 points per 90 minutes, which is the equivalent of 39 diamonds. The hardest and most tedious part is selling them, which takes almost as long as getting the wood and saplings, which will result in about 2,666 points per hour. That's a lot of points, and can get you a total of 13 diamonds per hour! Disregard the time it takes to sell it all, and you have about 26 diamonds per hour. This is double what you would get if selling items individually. Still with me? Great. Almost there now. Why items shouldn't be sold in bulk is because, as stated already, disregarding the time it takes to sell all the items, you get the points twice as fast. This would make diamonds half as valuable as they would be if items were to be sold in bulk. Well done to those who stayed with me in that little math class, hopefully you're still alive c:

    I think halo has a point; you can definitely farm a butt-ton of points by selling stuff to the skyblock server. This idea may seem a little wonky, but why not have an item-based economy just for Skyblock so that people can sell all the junk they want in one click, but the "points" earned in Skyblock and only be spent in Skyblock. Another server I'm staff on uses sponges as a currency to sell custom items such as firework-bows and speed boots via custom villagers, so this method definitely works. It'd just be a lot of work and might not be ideal for compatibility with the current economy. Just an idea I had in literally 2 seconds.

    After you said "100x100 tree farm" i was like nope nope nope nope nope. Im getting on the express lane to Nopeville where i can go Burger Nope and get a Big Nope. After that ill take all my math notes from school and burn them in a gigantic fire. THEN ill go onto skyblock and rethink what i've done.
