Hello Blockdrop!

It's that time again! A new update is upon us!

This time it is on the Skyblock server. But, not just any Skyblock update. This is without a doubt the biggest update ever to happen to Skyblock. We have added daring new systems like completely removing the whole spawner/mob economy!

I will start with the most impressive new part; The Shop. This is likely the most advanced shop on any server that is out right now. We know a balanced economy is a vital part of keeping a good server working well, so we have integrated neural networks and machine learning to constantly update retail prices for every item in the shop based off its popularity and demand. This means you'll see prices change in the shop (as the neural network learns more, prices will fluctuate at first and then stabilise as time progresses). I am so excited to see this working in the Skyblock server with everyone using it and I think that you will love it as much as we do!

As you read earlier, the economy has also changed. We have switched to a farming economy and integrated a unique recipe system to ensure that gameplay is tiered and progressive. You must unlock specific recipes in a specific order to advance your island to each new level and gain more selling power as a result!

We have so many other features that I am sure you will find fun and amazing and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of this massive update.

As always, if anyone finds any bugs, glitches or exploits, and if you have any suggestions then, please don't be shy, and send me a DM on the forums.

Thanks for reading and more importantly, Thanks for being a part of Blockdrop.


Hello Blockdrop.

I suspect some of you may have seen mini games vanish and be wondering what happened.

As many of you may know, mini games is a game mode that requires constant updating in order to stay relevant. People get easily bored of small arcade games. I think this is different to the normal game modes that people like to get invested in and spend a long time building a base/house etc and getting fully involved in the economy.

My thinking behind this is that by removing the mini games that not many players use, I am free to focus a lot more time on the main 5 game modes that a lot more people use all of the time. I think this is important and I think that this is the best way for me to spend my time in a way that will positively effect the most players.

This means that from now on, updates and bug fixes to the main 5 game modes can be much faster. It also means that we can work on making the games more cross compatible with things like making a good anticheat becoming easier now that we only have make it work on a specific few game modes.

All in all, (unless you are 1 of the very few people who only played the arcade) this decision will be an extremely positive one for you as a player and will help keep the server up to date, fun and interesting.

Thanks for reading.

Hello Blockdrop!

As the people who have been here a while will know, I always think of this server as a community server. I think of myself more of a care-taker than the owner and I think of it as my job to make sure that the server runs how the general Blockdrop community would like it.

I have noticed a few people commenting on the anti-cheat and it not doing what its meant to do, so I decided to take action! I have done the following things:

  • - Ban lengths extended (1 Week, 2 Weeks & 1 Month)
  • - Watchdog now ip bans instead of normal bans
  • - Staff will be given extra powers to take care of hackers
  • - It will become an offence to use a VPN

We will also be soon adding anti-vpn software that will auto ban people who use a vpn instantly. This is to stop people ban evading.

I hope that this is the crack down on hackers that everyone was hoping for. I think we will soon be one of the least hack-friendly servers.

Also: Some may have noticed that City Prisons has now been removed from the selector. The reason for this was that it is not a popular server. We have a lot of new people joining Blockdrop and we want to show them just how vibrant and fun Blockdrop is by letting them join our good game modes. For this reason, City Prison is removed from the selector as it generally gets less than 5 people online.

Obviously we care about the community and the people who already have made progress on there. We would never just delete a game mode and leave everyone with losses so you can still access City Prison by going to the normal Prison game mode and doing /cityprison
