    Other threads created for skyblock suggestions have been very helpful, coming up with things such as new challenge ideas. Now we are asking for more suggestions; this time we would like anything you believe could improve Skyblock. e.g Enhancing PVP experience, drop parties or other features (somehow).

    These ideas can be anything you believe will improve Skyblock for most/everyone making it more enjoyable.

    NOTE: If you would like to suggest a challenge, please suggest them here: https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/new-challenges-on-skyblock-we-need-your-help.66878/

    -Option 1: I would love to come down a little store prices such as grass.

    5 grass for 40 or 45 points.

    -Option 2: Would be super good a command to get heads of users and so collect them.

    -Option 3: Command to auction and buy things with the points you have each user.

    -Option 4: This I like. That if we vote for the server, and give us keys to redeem for random items, but not very chetados that then loses the joke SkyBlock. Items like, spawn of animals, customized heads, golden apples, or swords.

    -Option 5: to deactivate the pvp when someone wants to visit my island or when visiting someone fence.

    -Option 6: Improve the trading box area, safer and more beautiful.

    -Option 7: add many more things in store if no fence to put the option 4. But please do not change the design of the store, which previously had this much better.

    -Option 8: reduce lag.

    Please publish SkyBlock fast as I would like to play before they enter school. I enter the 2 February.

    Thank you. Luck.

    I forgot this option , and it is important and I think it is deserved .

    If reset the islands , at least give us 3,000 points since I spend a lot of points for buying a lot of land , trees, iron etc ... and my island was 500-550 level .

    Islands would most likely be reset as we are recoding the plugin.

    So I think it would be fair that when we get to 3000 points SkyBlock to give us back some of what we lost .

    3,000 points seems like too much especially because if a player played SkyBlock a few times they would get 3,000 points which would be a bit unfair.

    I must say that my floor in my island was pure grass and I spent many points.
    So far they would give us , ¿ 20 points ? wait, 3 points ?

    Unfair.

    We most likely will lower the prices for the first couple of days but nothing has been confirmed yet :p

    Maybe there should be a place where you can do something with all the things you got , like a place where you can pvp or something.

    Its just a suggestion :).

    Skyblock is being completely revamped so everything will be new, therefore I can assure you that the shop will be better. (I hope :p)

    1) Discount on all items in the store for the first few days or so, to allow users to race ahead of the competition and acquire items that they may have lost due to the reset. It'll be nice to see say a 10% off discount for the first week or so, seeing as it'll encourage everybody to start early :)

    2) The last Skyblock map's spawn had a marketplace, and yet there was no life there. The place felt more dead than a 500 year old tortoise. Perhaps add NPC's behind each market tent, all in which sell different things? (i.e. fishing rods, flint and steel, dirt and grass). I reckon that having these kinds of items sold by an NPC will make the spawn feel more 'alive' whilst simultaneously providing incentive for people to go there.

    3) Now for my big suggestion..

    Higher-leveled spawns that provide higher-leveled content

    The nether, since release, has been a complicated mess with a tiny box hut for a spawn.. boring! Perhaps only by completing most of the medium challenges, you can gain access to the nether, as well as access to the command /netherspawn, and it'll be a re-skin of the main spawn but with upgraded content (i.e. as previously mentioned, there could be a marketplace, however rather than an NPC selling dirt, they could sell mycellium, or rather than selling a fishing rod, they could sell an unbreaking enchanted rod). There will be numerous ways to leave the open-world spawn, and venture into the nether as usual, where you can discover a randomly-generated world as tradition.

    Similarly, the command /endspawn could be unlocked upon completing all expert challenges, and in this spawn we could see a more dangerous approach, with PvP being enabled in some areas of the spawn, endermen roaming freely and of course, another upgrade to the marketplace (i.e. rather than mycellium, an NPC could sell podzol, or a LotS fishing rod), all within a re-skin of the main spawn.

    I know that this suggesting may not be the best explained (tbh I rushed it because I forgot to make it yesterday), but if you would like a more in-depth description of the idea that I had in mind, just say so and I'll work on an essay describing all of the potential features that a system like this may have.

    I agree with your suggestions. The spawn is the first thing a new player sees. The first impression is the most important one. So spawn should be super impressive. Same goes for the nether. That is what skyblock needs most in my opinion.
