    Screenshots:


    Map was constructed within 6 days of building. Below are some screenshots of our build!

    IMPROVEMENTS
    -Spawn portal has been revamped!

    6.jpg
    -Cave has been widened and given a title!

    7.jpg

    -Changed pathways to be circular and added rails to prevent players from falling off!

    8.jpg

    -Spawn shop has been revamped to a series of semi-circle arcs around the center rather than one main building.

    9.jpg

    -Added extra space for special events!

    REASONING
    • Spawn portal has been revamped!
    - Spawn portal now has its own frame and path to help a player identify the portal. This was mainly for looks.
    • Cave has been widened and given a title!
    - Not really necessary, but once again to look good.
    • Changed pathways to be circular and added rails to prevent players from falling off!
    - A big problem is the players who may fall off. Rails have been added on the side to prevent this, and the island display has been made circular as it fits the skyblock theme a lot more.
    • Spawn shop has been revamped to a series of semi-circle arcs around the center rather than one main building.
    - Rather than having one building for everyone to cram in to, the new shop takes up less space and makes it harder for annoying players to block buy and sell signs, as there is more room to maneuver with.

    - Items have also been categorized.
    • Added extra space for special events!
    -This is for optional builds that the server staff may want to place here.
    EXTRAS
    • Moved from wooden to a stone-like theme.
    • Removed large trees for a clear view of the sky
    • Added guiding large block letters for navigation
    • There are 20 openings for islands on the circle which are 5 blocks wide. This should be enough as there are 19 premium islands on Skyblock, with the addition of the default island. The islands are not seen in the screenshots as they will be uploaded to the map if it gets accepted.
    • The shop is now twice as big. Since Skyblock has not been updated in a while, the shop only contains blocks from Minecraft 1.7. The old shop offers 76 items, while this new shop has space for twice that amount (152).
    • Additional screenshot links (since the maximum file count is 10 per post):

    STAFF

    Details here only apply to staff.

    World info:

    • The following game rules have been modified:
    -doDaylightCycle = false
    -doMobSpawning = false

    • The time is currently locked at 6000 ticks (12:00 PM).
    • The world has been wiped of all natural blocks, therefore there are zero blocks besides the structure given.
    • Spawn (or the center block) is at exactly coordinates X:0, Y:100, Z:0.
    • The .schematic file containing this entire spawn is roughly 6.4 million blocks (in total).

    Hmmmm, The spawn needs to be changed, but there is some parts that i dont like,
    1. That the shop is in a circle, like you need to search alot to find your item that you want to buy.
    2. The premium island path way, Its not really detailed.
    I like the rest.

    Hey! Thanks for the fast reply and feedback!

    The items have been categorized under these 4 titles:

    -General (General/Common building blocks)
    -Harvest (Crops/Seeds for planting)
    -Foods & Minerals (Food and valuables like diamonds, iron, etc.)
    -Miscellaneous (Other)

    If you can think of a block combination to make it look a lot more detailed, you can tell me :)

    It looks almost the same as the old one as I wanted to follow the wooden pathway idea of the spawn we have right now.

    Thanks for the feedback. Have a great day/night!

    Dude, dude! This looks absolutely fantastic! 100% support, I'm digging the circle shop, as it's a new thing to experience. Also loving how it just looks. Much...much cleaner than the one we have now. I said it already, but you got my support! :D

    Nice work!

    Maybe adding some water would be cool, but it's fine as it is right now.

    Skyblock has not been updated since 1.7, so the blocks in the shop are only from version 1.7 and below. The current shop we have now contains 76 items, however the arc shops as you see here have space for up to 152 items for new blocks that may be added :)

    Will add this to the post!

    You have my full support, Sirius!
    I actually really love the architecture of this build. It incorporates everything in the spawn we currently have, but adding lots more detail.
    I love the fact that:

    • It is a big area, supplying great room for the sections provided.
    • The bigger portal
    • The rails
    • The colours
    • The detail of even the smallest things
    I do have one question though.
    In our current SkyBlock spawn, we have a "Help" board, does the spawn you created have one too? If so, could you please send a screenshot of it? I would love to see it.

    Other than that, I really do hope this gets incorporated into the server!

    Thank you for the support Capsa! :)

    Of course, credit also goes to @Kryokin! While he may have been busy with his rank and all, I wouldn't have been able to do this without his help. We need more creative minds like Kryokin's in the J&H build them :D

    As for the "Help" board, it was listed in the extra screenshots area :)

    Here is the link: http://prntscr.com/bly6vt

    The signs are currently blank as there are no color codes in vanilla minecraft, and I believe the owners should work on the signs themselves!

    Have a great day/night, Capsa!

    This is beautiful. I have to say, but one thing that bothers me. Well, a few things.
    1. It looks very 'WorldEdit-ed' meaning it has no real nature. I would suggest adding one of those big trees we see on the server a lot, and a bit of colour. This looks much like a Server hub, a bit of touching would give us that Skyblock feel.
    2. I'm going to say it again, it lacks colour. Looks very dull, it could use a bit of colours and a few additions.

    However, other then those things.. I love it, it's fresh, it's original and it would look great! c:

    I love the spawn lad!

    Add this:
    Do some hand terraforming
    Hand-made trees
    Glowstone then trapdoor (placed on the walls)
    Add screenshots with shaders (i wanna see it)

    This is legit

    Sirius thanks for adding me in the credits of the building! You did a fantastic job as well as _Kono and a few others... I really hope this gets accepted! Keep building bro!

    Also... The reason it looks a little dull in the photos is because it was made in a desert biome, not a grassland biome. #BlameKono

    Oh my gosh, that is amazing! The old Skyblock spawn is starting to look quite boring, so a good old spicing up is really needed!
    Perhaps this could also return old players who have quit Skyblock due to boredom. Really love to see this on the server :)

    UPDATES
    Hey everyone! Thanks for the amazing feedback! :)

    I've noticed most of the criticism came from bad terrain formation, in that it appeared to be generated with WorldEdit. Well fear no more! I've constructed the outside of the spawn to appear more natural.

    Here are some feedback quotes:

    Improvements:

    -Improved terrain formation. The island now looks more natural with rocky edges and waterfalls! Main image is listed here and in the main post.
    -Changed biomes. In the screenshots above, this was located in a Desert biome. They have been switched to River biome. :)

    1.jpg


    -Added a large tree in replacement of the extra area.
    -Please note, I am not responsible for the creation of this tree. Special thanks to Bencom for this amazing tree. Depending on MrDeathWilliam's judgement, this tree may or may not appear in the final build.

    2.jpg
    -Fixed hub portal

    3.jpg

    -Added glowstone floors to the outer ring (premium island display)

    4.jpg

    Thanks for reading!

    If there's anything else you'd like to see changed, let me know! Remember, this spawn is our spawn. If you can envision it, we can create it!

    Have a great day/night, and I'll talk to you tomorrow!

    Sirius, this is absolutely beautiful. You, Kono and Flaming did a fantastic job building this. I'd love to see this added in Skyblock.

    Dude, Amazing Job!
    This might not look as good as it is because of the bad texture pack :P
    But I am so sure that this will be a nice change to Skyblock!
    Thanks for adding the Glowstone <3
