A special version of the classic minecraft vanilla skyblock experience!
Start on an island in the newest version of minecraft (1.16.1) and showcase your knowlegde of minecraft mechanics.

Different to other skyblock maps, the only things you'll get here is a tree, some dirt, water and a single lava bucket. There're no other items or islands.
It is possible to get nearly all items, present in minecraft, with the help of different minecraft mechanics.

With the introduction of piglin trading in the 1.16 this mechanics got expanded even more.

Nevertheless, there're still some items which aren't obtainable in skyblock. That's why I added custom advancements, which will reward you with some useful items in rare cases. Besides that, there're also some custom crafting recipes (-> media gallery) and custom mob drops, which allow you to get certain items.

With that being said, enjoy your hardcore technical skyblock experience.

Is your minecraft knowledge good enough to complete all advancements and challenges? We'll see!

Have fun!

Hello people!

I'm trying to get bamboos, but without any results for like a couple hours straight.
It has to be done at jungle, right?

https://imgur.com/a/PCguxhG

Found a couple name tags, 4 ench.books, 6 e.books, 7 e.fishing rods, bumch of fish and random junk (glass bottles, bones, lily pads etc), but no any bamboos.

I've played this map little bit earlier on 1.16.pre4/5, I was able to get bamboo there, but I lost that save because of my stupidity.
Sorry about my horrible english.


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

Edit:
After few more name tags and one book with 5 enchants.... finally fished one bamboo.

Hi, been enjoying your map so far as the standard survival ones kind of bored me.

I've been trying to get to the end, but was blocked by the world border as shown below >>> the eye kept pathfinding inside there and there's no way in (the border stretches for miles)



Initially i thought that defeating a ghast in the overworld would 'create' or 'spawn' out an end portal frame for me to enter, but... nothing appeared. Then I thought the title of that achievement probably made sense: maybe you edited the game files so that the portal is 'uniquely' activated not by inserting EOE, but by completing that difficult ghastly task.

Are there any tips to progress ahead? Or am I... bugged?

Don't need to use the eyes, the portal frame is at east , not far from the island.

Yes you're right, I thought the advancement would 'unlock' the end portal initially, but it still remained 'disabled' though... hence I thought stronghold was my last to-go solution for this..

img of the still-disabled end frame east of world spawn point>>


img of advancement alrdy cleared>>


At this point, I'm hoping that I wouldn't need to 're-download' and 're-play' the entire game, it's basically almost completed just lacking me clearing ender as well as having access to diamonds/elytra/netherite armor

If you guys have some tips on how you managed to open up your portal, it would help me greatly on this...

I don't really know why it isn't working for you... I just tested it and it worked just fine. However, I'd simply recommend you to fill the portal with a command (/fill x y z minecraft:end_portal) to be able to go to the nether

Command 'fill/setblock' will not work for the blocks belongs to chunks that not loaded yet, I guess that's the reason.

Hi,

no, it is the skyblock map

you can find such world plain maps at certain key points like (e.g near the woodlands mansion, or near the witch hut) - you can imagine my strenuous effort, in a desperate search of a solution to reach the End (as well as all the EOE burnt out from doing this, needing to keep farming the annoying blazes), slabbing all the way from x0 z0 until reaching world borders...

Versions:
-Minecraft: 1.16-pre7
-Hardcore Technical Skyblock V.1.15

Issues:
1. I am not getting any more animal spawns except chickens. I have white sheep from original spawns and chickens spawn sporadically. I have a 6x8 grass platform.

2. I am not able to get any brown mushrooms to spawn. I have created a closed in 8x8x2 in the swamp biome with a light level of 0 and 11 (using only glowstone).

3. I cannot advance in Farming (pumpkin, wheat, sea pickle, sugar cane, kelp, melon, and mushroom) due to having no emeralds.
3-a. I cannot get emeralds because I cannot turn a zombie villager into a villager without a splash potion of weakness.
3-b. I cannot make a splash potion of weakness without a fermented spider eye.
3-c. I cannot make a fermented spider eye without a brown mushroom.
3-d. LOOP #2

-Has anyone gotten a brown mushroom to get this chain going?

For the passive mobs spawning, the caps of passive mobs are pretty low, so if can't move your sheep and cows far enough away from the spawn area, and the only way to make spawning new ones possible, is to kill the old ones.

Well..I don't think you can get a mushroom from a swamp surface that easily...The spawn rate is very low.
You have to break the emerald-villager loop in a more efficient way, tha Witcher! LoL.
That's a how I did it. You might want to build a tricky dark spawn house to have a witch to spawn, then trap her into a tight place to get it done.
You need a lot golden apples,cuz witches in Hard diff, hit really hard, and it could take you some die dryings.
And you need to have your HP lower than 4 hearts, within less than 3 blocks away from the witch, then you have a 1/4 chance, to get a weakness splash potion hit, or 3/4 chance to get a instant damage potion right on your face (mostly a instant kill lol).

Can you elaborate on the Witcher please? I have searched a bunch, but none point towards an achievement.

Also, I have moved my game to creative single player, murdered every living thing in my world, made 2 8x8 grass platforms ~100 blocks apart and I have nothing spawning whatsoever.

Inside my spawn house, notice the stone slabs and trapdoors, need to get mobs spawn only in the narrow lines with line-of-sight blocked, also the baby zombies should not escape:
Inside my spawn house, notice the stone slabs and trapdoors, need to get mobs spawn only in the narrow lines with line-of-sight blocked, also the baby zombies should not escape:

And once you're lucky enough...
A witch is there, then light up the house, and clear other mobs, name tag the witch, then...

This kind of trap is where the witchs or zombie villagers to go:
note that trapdoor can flip down... I think you can figure out how to use this trap..
That boat is actually for witchs only, you don't really need it for a zombie villager:
fit!

This is the moment:
there are still something to do, to make sure zombie can't see you but the witch can, you know what that mean

Got it, the weakness to player, also to the zombie villager behind, and thats it.

For Animals...I think there is something buggy in the version of 1.16-pre-8, I've just tried in a new skyblock world, filled an 128x128 grass platform, and all I got is 5 pigs and 4 sheep... thats way too lower than before. But it WAS easy to get a lot of animals spawn before, even at a very high Y level or a very small platform.(in my world, its a 9x9 area at Y=64 )

I'll post some screenshots for your questions, might be easier to get things explained.

OK, so playing on 1.16-pre2 and all seems good. I do have a some questions though...

1. What is the drop rate for the lava buckets on the wither skeletons? (I have killed 556 and no lava drops)
1-a. Can the wither skeletons drop lava buckets after the achievement is earned?

2. Are the animal spawn rates modified? (I am not getting any cows or pigs whatsoever)

3. What is the fishing rate for an enchanted book? (3374 fish caught, 40 ink sacks, 60 water bottles, 75 Lilly Pads, 289 Leather, 121 Leather boots, 32 bowls, 6 bamboo, ~1k string, ~1k bones...~ Total Items Fished = ~6k)

4. Bees seem to leave the nest pretty quickly and go down to level 0 (or it looks that way as they are way down below under the area the nest spawned); is this normal or should more bees spawn?


Side Comment for the Players: I thought I would be clever and break through some bedrock in the nether to get some brown mushrooms, but the joke was on me, there is no nether roof! (I went a bit over 1k blocks up)...WHOMP WHOMP

1. Wither skeletons don't drop lava buckets at all. It's the Wither who drops these!

2. Animals will spawn naturally, preferable in plains biomes. However there needs to be a grass platform for them to spawn. I don't know if you already obtained grass.

3. Fishing mechanics were changed in the 1.16 also including special requirements for you to be able to obtain rare loot such as books. I'd recommend you watching a video on that.

4.Yeah unfortunately that's normal. I'd reccomend you building a cage for them.

1. Derp, I should have caught that.
1-a. Will it drop each time?

2. I have a 5x6 grass platform (which is how I got sheep and chickens).

3 & 4. Will do, thank you.


Side Note: I'm running on 1.16-pre3 and all is good so far.

A really good map, I'm playing this map in 20w22a since few days ago. I've explored every dims in creative mode, and here are some problems I've found in my game:
1) I can't find any Guardian spawning around and inside the Ocean monument, I've tried to fill up all the air blocks in the ocean biomes around it (also filled up the air under the monument), but no guardians at all. Idk if this is supposed to be, or some buggy thing happened to the game since the version mismatch?

2) No Endcity generated, I've explored a whole area of about 5k X 5k blocks finished almost 5 pieces of level 4 map, no endcity found, so...i'm pretty sure there is no endcity at all in my game lol..

3) some advancements are still buggy but nothing critical so far.

Thanks for your reply. I didn't really have time the past days to work on this map. But I'll try to fix these errors in the next weeks to come.

If you, however have any idea on how to fix the problem with the ocean monument, let me know.

Wandering traders only spawn if there's enough possible spawning area for them. If you have just one small area they won't spawn as you're too close to them. Maybe try to expand on your island/Platform.

You can also create an infinite water source with only one source by bonemealing to create seagrass. Seagrass will convert flowing water into a sourceblock, just like kelp does. There are many configurations to accomplish this, but the easiest is to duplicate your water source. To do this create a 1x2 trench, that is 2 blocks deep, place a block at one end so that it is only 1 deep at that end. Place your water source at the 1 deep end so that it flows down into the hole. Now bonemeal the bottom of the 2 deep hole until the grass is 2 high. Break the grass and you should be left with 2 water sources. from that you can make your infinite water source in any of the traditional configurations.

Glad you succeeded. It's not a well known game mechanic, so most people don't know about it. The other way to get water is to use cauldrons, and wait for it to rain, but this is a very slow process.
