Welcome Visitor!

This is Dull Dusks! A Survival Skyblock map with tons of custom structures and terrain. Can you survive without trees? Because you are not getting them in this map!
The map is currently work in progress, so do not ask for a download. A list of current and pending features can be found below!

The map is based on completing quests. You receive a book at the beginning of your journey. In this book is a small explanation and description of the quest. On the second page you will find the actual quest itself, together with some functional buttons.

Every quest book comes with a different kind of task. These are the possible options:
  • Detection task: A task where the player has to have a certain amount of a specific item in their inventory
  • Consume taks: A task where the player has to hand in a certain amount of a specific item
  • Crafting task: A task where the player has to craft a certain amount of a specific item
  • Visiting task: A task where the player has to visit a specific location in the overworld
  • Nether Visit task: A task where the player has to visit a specific location in the nether

When you complete a quest, there are multiple things you can receive as a bonus:
  • Item Reward: the player receives an item, block or tool. This bonus is in every quest, and every quest has a set reward.
  • Reward Bag: when thrown, this bag will randomly give you an item. It might be useful, it might not be. This reward is received with some quests
  • World upgrade reward: An upgrade only received when you complete a quest line, other than the first quest line. It can upgrade for example the random tick speed, to make your crops grow faster!

Quest Lines:
All quests are devided over multiple quest lines, which include 10 quests in total:
  • Main Quest Line - Teaches you the basics of skyblock and opens up new quest lines - Complete
  • Hoarding Quest Line - Once you complete a quest line, a special, extra hard quest is given
  • Explorer Quest Line - Shows you the other parts of the empty world
  • Monster Quest Line - Lets you hunt down all those pesky mobs
  • Technology Quest Line - Teaches you how to create awesome machines to make your life easy
  • Weaponry Quest Line - Forge new metals and gems and make awesome cool gear with it in this line - Complete
  • Botany Quest Line - Grow Awesome new Crops - Complete
  • Alchemy Quest Line - Pending - Go to town with new and existing potions

Some features can be gotten already though One-Commands. The list is below:

Statistics and Progression:
  • Total Amount of Quests planned: 66
  • Total Amount of Quest Lines Planned: 6
  • Total Amount of Quests Complete: 52
  • Total Amount of Quest Lines Complete: 3

Forum and Guide
I have also set up a website which explains every little detail about how some of the modules work, and how to obtain everything you need. Also further information about the map is on that website. The website is not done yet, but it will be done when the map releases.

Update #9 - Map almost ready for alpha/beta testing : by Rsdg 08/23/2016 8:42:14 amAug 23rd, 2016

As the title states, the map is almost done. Introduction to the map has been done using 8 models and voice sounds. A lot of other sounds have been added to replace modified minecraft default sounds.

A system for book recovery is being worked on. This will make sure you dont lose quest books if you died in the void or lost them. This also means that there needs to be a system that clears books of quests you have completed as you can have multiple and put the second in a chest to preserve them. This system is already working.

All quests are almost done, putting the completion percentage at 85%
