SERVER IP mc.yfory.cc





A dedicated server for Skyblock in the UK; featuring mini-games including; Capture the Flag, Spleef, Parkour, Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing (Free for All), and PVP Parkour. Expand your island via the server shop and rank up by completing achievements to become an Admiral.

We also have PVP-enabled Skygrid, as well as customised dungeons and dragons for Admiral players.


Skyblock UK Features:


Advanced Anti-Cheating System
Cheaters are caught and banned quickly and there are no false-positive bans. If you want to play here, uninstall those mods!

Custom Gameplay
Fishing isn't boring here, you'll get rare items usually unavailable on Skyblock servers. Our Ender Dragon is not the silly little thing you've beaten on your creative server, but a battle ready raid boss. Dungeons await Admiral players. Our survival Nether allows you to claim land - if you can defend it from the hordes of mobs.

24/7/365 - Lag Free for UK Players
Our server is up 24 hours a day, because it is a dedicated server housed in a world class data centre, not a home pc on poor broadband.

Gold Standard Economy
We use gold nuggets, an item based economy. There is a server /shop to buy from, and Lieutenant+ players can set up chest shops on their islands to sell items to Commander+ ranked players.


Auction your Epic Gear
Ensign+ to start auctions, anyone can bid. No need to donate!


Lottery
Roll-over jackpots, limited tickets, could you win a big fortune and build the castle of your dreams?


Minigames
Our parkour course is custom built, unique, and everyone agrees, one of the best they have ever tried. We also offer 2-4 player PVP parkour, 2-6 player capture the flag, 2-8 player spleef, 3-8 player team deathmatch, and 5-21 player free for all (last man standing).

Infected! : 05/18/2013 6:35:19 am5/18/13

We have a new mini-game for you to enjoy; 3 to 8 players; Infected!

In the style of Call of Duty, a small number of players start infected with a plague and must kill the survivors. The survivors must kill the infected. 3 minutes on the clock; if one or more survivors remain - those survivors win, otherwise, the infected win!

Available to all players; type /infected

Updates to Survival World : 04/11/2013 6:53:43 am4/11/13

1.0:
  • Refined code, more streamlined and more efficient.
  • You can now grow melons inside beach biomes.
  • You can now grow sugarcane inside river biomes.
  • More accurate checking to prevent underground farms.
  • Attempting to harvest melons outside of deserts and beaches is a bad idea.
  • Crops fail more accurately when planted in inappropriate biomes.
  • Potato crops have been finely tweaked, Maris Piper would be proud. Forest/swamp is now best.
  • 35% of spiders will spawn as cave spiders (you can thank D34thSkull).
  • Setting your bed in Ambrosia should no longer allow you to die in Skyblock and appear in Ambrosia.
  • Squids have a chance of dropping raw fish.
  • Bonemeal no longer works on crops, should never have worked to start with!

Survival of the Fittest : 04/06/2013 12:15:24 pm4/06/13

Survival World

Our survival world has been activated. Available for Captain+ players, or via a small donation. You can use /survival home once every two hours and /survival sethome once every four.

Survival on our server is not for carebears. It is harder than hard mode; with everything from the trees to the mobs and the world in-between having been custom coded to provide you with a truly nomadic hunter/gatherer style survival that will have you raiding and trading or starving fast.

Skygrid Activated! : 04/03/2013 8:59:28 am4/03/13

We now have PVP-enabled Skygrid for Commander+ ranked players. Players below this rank are able to donate for access to Skygrid or rank up in the usual manner by completing Skyblock achievements.

Quartz Party! : 03/28/2013 11:51:01 am3/28/13

Nether Quartz:
Quartz is in! You can buy it from the /shop.

Goldmine Re-design:We have opened the new /goldmine area, which consists of all ores, including nether quartz. You can mine a quota of ores per hour played. For each 1 hour of skyblock island play time, you gain 400 points. Points are capped at 3200. Gold ore blocks reduce your points by 100, whereas Quartz ore reduces it by 25. Once your points are 0 you will have to play more skyblock before you can mine at /goldmine again.

64! : 03/18/2013 7:15:11 am3/18/13

Slots upgraded to 64. :)

1.5: Compatibility Mode : 03/13/2013 10:46:01 am3/13/13

The server is accepting connections from 1.5 game clients!

We are running in 'compatibility mode'. That means, your 1.5 client can connect to our server, but the server operates as if it was 1.4.7, until our plugins are updated. All that means in real terms is that the 'new features' of 1.5 are unavailable, but the server will function as normal otherwise!

New Mini-Game : 03/02/2013 5:09:41 am3/02/13

We have added a new mini-game!
  • Last Man Standing aka Free for All, 5 to 21 players! /ffa


Also, As villagers are not native to skyblock, we have enabled the ability to cure zombie villagers.

Welcome to Europe! : 02/27/2013 10:58:28 am2/27/13

As our regular players know, chat is in English only. However, as we grow in numbers and want to welcome other Europeans, we have custom coded a chat channel especially for non-English chat! Regular chat must remain in English language.

You can now group chat in non-English via the /eu command.
  • Type /eu on to join the non-English chat channel, and /eu off to leave.
  • Send non-English messages with /eu [message]
Du kan nu chatta pa andra sprak an engelska via kommandot /eu.

  • Skriv /eu on for at prata i icke-engelska chatten, och /eu off for att lamna chatten.
  • Skicka icke-engelska meddelanden med /eu [meddelande]

1st Month Updates : 02/24/2013 10:38:41 am2/24/13

We have almost reached the end of our first month online, and gone from zero to hero! A huge thanks to all our regular players, and humble welcome to new ones too!
  • Upgraded from 32 to 40 slots!
  • Improved auctions to show the current highest bidder.
  • You can also switch auctions off using /auction off
  • New website has gone live! http://skyblock.yfory.cc
  • VIP donators can now use /biome to change the biome of their island.

Keep the Chat Flowing : 02/19/2013 5:35:06 am2/19/13

We have some of the coolest custom written death messages around, but sometimes when mini games are busy, regulars find it hard to chat. So we have solved that problem!

If you want to disable death messages entirely, type: /dm off
..and if you want to switch them back on; /dm on

Dungeons! : 02/17/2013 9:05:05 am2/17/13

Admiral players can now access three custom created dungeons. The dungeons can be categorised as easy, medium, and hard; they are Serpentine, Nineveh, and Hellgate. Each dungeon has it's own set of traps and treasures, and automatically resets every 3 hours.

Island Shopping : 02/12/2013 3:30:38 am2/12/13

Lieutenant+ players can now add chest shops to their island! Commander+ players can /call you to visit your island and therefore are your potential customers; you can now become a bonafide shop keeper!

To sell to a shop, left click the sign. To buy from a shop, right click the sign.

To create a shop; place a chest, and above the chest place a sign. On the sign you need to write 4 lines; the shop owner, stack size, buy and sell values, and item name or id. For example:

Notch

64

B140:S120

Bread


You can write B140 to only sell to your customers, or S120 to only buy from your customers. However, most successful shops are those that buy and sell.

Remember; Commander+ players can /call you, but only if you are online. Admiral players could also fly to your island whilst you are offline, if they know the co-ordinates.

The End - Of Boring Dragons : 02/10/2013 9:39:54 am2/10/13

We have opened The End to Admiral players, but this is not the End of vanilla minecraft. Instead, The End is a raid event that requires several Admirals to work together to defeat the dragon. Suddenly those dragon eggs become genuine trophies!

* The End is now open for Admiral players to challenge the dragon.
* New PVP minigame added! Team Deathmatch /teamdm for 3 vs. 3 and 6 vs. 6!

The Nether Update : 02/07/2013 5:59:50 am2/07/13

We have now opened the Nether, a day earlier than anticipated! The Nether is our survival world and only accessible once you have ranked up to Captain or Admiral. You can claim land and expand your claim, build and survive; but beware, the mobs are angry that you have moved in to their territory!

* The Nether is now open for Captain+ ranked players.
* The Nether is a survival world, where you can claim land and fight mobs!
* Place a chest to make your claim, use a gold shovel to expand your claim.
* Mobs are angry that the Nether is open, they will fight much harder now!

+ More work on the website, which will be fully integrated with the game!

Gotta Catch Them All! : 02/05/2013 5:48:20 am2/05/13

Gameplay improvements added for fishing, mini games and donators. Work has begun on improving Skyblock world spawn in preparation for 1.5 and opening the Nether this weekend. Fishing is the only way to get chainmail boots!

* Fishing has been enhanced! Catch more than just fish!
* Kill streaks added for PVP Parkour and Capture the Flag.
* Yet more achievements added!
* Donation package added (use /buy 4) giving /disguise in Skyblock world and [$] suffix.

+ Website progressing well. :)

PVP Parkour : 02/03/2013 6:39:03 am2/03/13

We're growing in players which is awesome, so as promised, a new mini game has been added along with some improvements to gameplay!

* Crop growth rates are much better compared to vanilla minecraft.
* More achievements added.
* Added /call for Commander+ to bring visitors to their skyblock islands.
* PVP Parkour added for 2 to 4 players; join via /parkourwar

+ Work progressing well on web access to player stats.

Hats and Fly Update : 02/02/2013 6:51:07 am2/02/13

Some new features for existing players as well as tweaks to improve gameplay. The server is doing well and our players are growing in numbers; exciting times!

* Implemented /fly for Admiral rank in Skyblock World.
* Added /hat command for Lieutenant+ players.
* Added an extra 10 achievements - more coming soon!
* New islands are automatically protected (old will need to restart for protection.)

+ Work has begun on showing /achievements via the web along with player stats.
+ Work has begun on a new mini-game.

Bug Fixes : 01/29/2013 8:01:54 pm1/29/13

* Fixes applied to /shop.
* Fixes applied to /goldmine. Now functions as intended.

* Tweaked the value of 64 cobblestone to a reasonable rate.
* Fixes applied to automated ranking system. We have our first group of Ensign players!

Extra Storage for Players : 01/29/2013 6:52:08 am1/29/13

All players start as Cadet; after 1 hour of play and completing 5 achievements, you will be automatically ranked to Ensign. Achievements are completed by actively playing; i.e. building a cobblestone generator, making a house, creating farms, etc.

* Ensign+ now have extra virtual storage via /backpack command.
* Commander+ can now upgrade to double sized storage via /backpack upgrade.

* Cobblestone to Nugget exchange rate improved to be more appropriate.

Hello Mr.yfory me and my 3 friends are joining your server and by the way sounds great but we have searched everywhere on every skyblock server to see if we could be beside eachother. We havent made islands yet so i was thinking would it be possible to ensure that we get beside eachother?we would be joining at the same time.

The system is automated; if you all log in at the same time, there is a strong likelihood that you will be positioned next to each other, however it is not guaranteed.

Hi Yfory, I was wondering if you as the admin could move islands from one place to another? Ex: Moving my island closer DaCreeper's island.

April 30, 2013, 10:59 pm

Hi Turtle,

Moving islands is not possible. If a neighbour of player XYZ is no longer active (hasn't played in more than 30 days), I could remove their island and set your island to theirs. You would lose your existing island and all items on it / associated with it.

That said, DaCreepers doesn't play much these days...

I found a spot behind KingofSock's island with no island there and I was thinking if you could move my island there that would be great, but could I just store my items at my friends island so I don't lose it.

Tell me when you could get the chance to move it and I'll begin to store things at my friends island.

Thanks, I really appreciate you doing all of the things you do for my enjoyment on this server.

hey yfory beckhamwong here,

after the 1.5 update, I cannot join the server because some website called spamhaus.org/xbl flagged my ip address as spam, and I don't want to find another server cause this one is amazing. please help me

MrYfory

March 16, 2013, 7:33 am

Hi beckham,

I sympathise, you are a nice person. You will need to contact spamhaus, or change your IP address. Most internet providers will change your IP address if you switch your internet router off for 90 minutes. If this is not possible, contact spamhaus.

This situation can only happen if your IP address was used for spamming either in a game, email, or some other form. Maybe at one point you had a virus, or maybe someone else who had that IP did. Either way, ISP or SpamHaus can solve it for you.

I have been attempting to enter their website but to no avail, it never loaded for me and yes, other sites have loaded ( google, Wikipedia, youtube). I really want to get back on the server so i will switch off my router for the whole night later and if it does not work, I really don't know what to do.

How do you rank up? cool server :D

MrYfory
Level 42
Master Dragon
February 7, 2013, 7:23 am

Ranking up is automatic; you rank up by completing achievements. All achievements are related to Skyblock (and later on in your game, Nether). Very few are related to the minigames. Minigames are there for entertainment and any one may play, but to rank up you need to actively play Skyblock.

For example; build a house, farm lots of wheat, bake cookies, etc.

It's worthwhile because once you rank up to Captain and have access to the Nether, you will need a good supply of food, weapons, etc. to keep you safe. The Nether is insanely hardcore.
