    If it gets better, it will automatically resemble the old one. I'm not saying it should be the same.

    The 5x thing has nothing to do with the reset btw, this thread was made 2 weeks ago.

    I feel bad about having to destroy someone's beloved work, but just out of curiosity, let me ask this:

    The current "season" has been going for 1.5 years now. I just visited your island and can see the amazing builds you did, but surely you must be running out of stuff to do now? Imagine we never reset and were still on 5 servers, would you have built all these new things in the past 1.5 years? A reset is like a push to start doing stuff again. "It's about the journey not the destination." I think in retrospect a reset is a good thing for the "old" players too.

    ============================

    *flashback to last survival reset*
    Couple players FUMING that they demand /old server. After 1 week literally 0 players. We secretly remove the server and no one noticed.

    I built my island up enough to give me the money needed to build for others on their islands I don't ask them for money to build.
    Its like Skyblock+Creative in many ways. For a builder its HEAVEN

    I have an endless build-ability in helping others. Is is not just my island but all the others builds I have helped with I would like to see saved.

    And as you said not enough played survival to keep it alive.

    Skyblock has a fair following abet not like the olds days when I'd see 1500 players and lagg was very bad at times but we played because it was J&H. I did look at other servers but none had the "this is HOME" feel of J&H.

    Big THANKS for giving us the downloads as I do run around in them every few days getting XYZ for those that have asked me to find their
    old islands. One warning for others playing with the downloads set to 1.8 and turnoff fire LOL
    Skyblock 1 is big when unpacked 75.6 GB :eek: the rest not even near that:grin:

    You are a skyblock expert I love your builds. And you are very kind. You help people and inspire people. I hope you don't quit skyblock after the reset :)

    With the reset and download could you set the spawn point in the download to SPAWN and do /gamerule doFireTick false.
    That would save some players that don't know how to edit the .dat files from just falling over and over again :frown: and having
    islands on fire.:cool:

    There is an editor for Windows and Mac's to do that. I use a hex editor but thats my goto tool for the
    last 20 odd years in playing with non text files.

    That is a fair point Jerry, a reset is a push to do new things, but really only because now you are now forced to. If someone wants to make a new island, they can always do /is reset or a few blocks of tnt always works if you only want to remove part of the island. Trust me, I always have some new ideas for if Skyblock does reset again for my main island or what I can do on my 3 other islands. But it's just general laziness that I haven't actually started any of these projects. It's got nothing to do with Skyblock at all, rather how interested I am in other games.

    I think keeping the interest in Skyblock has to come from some kind of reward system for good islands. After the 6 keys from the challenges, there is literally nothing reward-wise that you get. Nothing from having a good island or anything like that.

    If a reset were to happen, I think you and Harry should not make payouts for highest island level, but instead have a place to submit your island on the forums for you to decide who has the best island and win the payout based on your choice. Maybe start the first one after a month and do x amount afterwards to keep the intensity there to actually *build instead of farm.*

    So you're saying that the only way we'll know if Skyblock is better is if it resembles the old one? You're being a bit hypocritical here by saying this, just an fyi.

    Island level can be given according to different techniques. We shouldn't get a level just by putting diamond blocks. For example, a special block can be added for the level. We may have to do the main tasks of skyblock to get this special block. This is just an example, there can be many creative methods like this. People don't need to ruin their islands for level.

    That seems like it would just hinder people who want to build out of that block, which would also mean it just complicates the situation a lot more. I'm pretty sure I suggested somewhere to make island level out of spawner's (Like Factions does with their balance) as well as blocks.
    Specifically with your last line, that's exactly what the different payout system (if there will be one for Skyblock) would fix.

    You know very well that this is definitely not what I mean. This has nothing to do with hypocrisy. After all, those who were doing the old skyblock were already these people. I don't judge them with something they can't do. They have already done this before. Of course, all it takes to be good is not to go back but this is the shortest and easiest way.

    It means that people struggle with their creativity, not with what they put in the randomly. Nothing has to be very complicated, what I am saying can be done very simply. I have no idea about the faction system on this server but as far as i experience people don't play for fun. I may have said something wrong what I'm saying is exactly what I see. I'm sorry if I said something wrong.

    I understand your point- thank you for explaining it further. I get you're trying to make a work around of giving people more reason to play, but I just don't see it working all to well.

    Fistrly thank you for your kind reply. Yes, it may not be successful, but I think we do not have much to lose. I don't want people's efforts to be wasted but I think this is a risk that should be taken for a better quality and good game pleasure like before. We don't have a chance to know what will happen, but good things will happen at least i believe this. What I say may sound selfish, it happened when I made the wrong sentence many times but I definitely don't think against the server.

    Wait, so what will be improved/added?
    My answer to if I want a SkyBlock reset relies on that

    We know it will change but we do not know how it will change yet. We need to wait for a return from the owners to find out. @ItsJerry @ItsHarry

    Yeah I also think so. If nothing new will be added there's no need to reset it because the same things will happen again and again.

    So why are you resetting everything in your server except for skyblock? Then don't reset prison or faction or other things. We know what it means reset. Don't try to explain to us. We already got one in the past. Please stop making "senseless" comments here. Builds are easy to do. My island is in /is top 5 and I really don't care if my whole island going to get f***** up. The only thing you have to do is just delete worlds, delete the config and reset the player's money. I really don't care about anything because the reset will make everything better.

    The other gamemodes get reset because they make money off of players buying things every reset. Have you ever seen how much the chat floods with buy messages on a factions reset? Those gamemodes get reset because once you get to the top, there is literally nothing to do. Not resetting those gamemodes would near certainly doom the server.
