    Minigame: Skyblock

    Description of the map:


    Volcanic Islands features 1 island with a center point volcano, along with very key details similar to real life.
    This is what each block means:
    Stone, Stone Brick Stairs: Volcano Structure
    Granite: Lava, dried.
    Black Wool: Volcanic Ash
    Coarse Dirt: Messy Terrain

    This is NOT to player scale.

    The other island, which I call "Serenidad" features a smaller volcano and some mountains.

    What needs to be in the chest for this Skyblock map specifically:
    - All regular equipment found on default island
    - Prismarine items (sea feature, similar to what's found on End)
    - Granite (32x)
    - Emeralds (2x)

    Screenshots:

    Looks kinda plain, maybe if the volcano was more dramatic; adding some netherrack or something else along those lines would make it look great.

    There also seems to be a lot of water. I think there should be less water and more lava & obsidian/cobblestone.

    The island also kind of looks like a complete circle. This may just be the screenshots, but try to make it a little diverse.

    I do infact like the chest items though. They may be changed if it's accepted. I think some basic ores should also be in there other than emeralds. Maybe 1-2 diamonds, 4 gold, 8 iron, and 16 coal? Not sure

    Good luck though!

    It's actually not a sphere/cylinder. Since I hand made it, I avoided making it "perfect".

    With the plain aspect, I agree. It's plain, but it's a Skyblock map. I tried making it "equal" to the current maps, but I like the suggestion!

    What is the weird part about it. It helps Ex a lot if you give details/suggestions on things to work on

    I can remove the smaller island and just make a big main one or something like that.

    I feel like the main reason people buy skyblock islands is to farm materials... but this island doesn't really give you anything you can't just buy in bulk for cheap at the store. I get it would have aquamarine in the chest, but you might as well make an aquamarine themed island so people can just farm aquamarine items off the terrain instead.

    I can put a rare material inside of the volcano, but I have no clue what it could be.

    Looks really good to me, but that may be my lack of building skills. Hope this gets accepted!

    I'd suggest adding possibly a lava fall going down the mountain, and leaving an empty bucket in the chest rather than a lava bucket! Otherwise, nice map!

    I think an Acacia tree would like really nice on this type of map. And adding some coal(if that's not to op?)
    /a lot more sand and red sand. But otherwise it looks cool.

    I agree with these three suggestions, and I would like to add a suggestion of adding cobwebs as smoke from the volcano as cobwebs are typically a rare and difficult to harvest building block.

    It's not erupting. 5 string isn't really going to change anything.

    The point is, is that no one is going to buy a non-erupting volcano island. People want details (ex. My previous suggestions including lava, obsidian, and other things).

    The more details you put into the map, the better chance of acceptance. I'm not going to lie, the map kind of looks like a small hill with some water around it. If the title wasn't named "Volcano" I would've never knew this was a valcano.

    Not string. Anyone can get string from spiders. Cobwebs, on the other hand, cannot be crafted or obtained anywhere else normally (unless I'm being dumb and they're in the skyblock shop)

    Edit: Just checked; cobwebs are not in the skyblock shop. The only two islands that have cobweb already are the Nether and End islands.
