What is Skyblock?

Imagine waking up in a Minecraft world on a floating island with just one tree and a chest with some utensils.

You look down and see nothing but emptiness. You look around, other floating islands catch your eye.

This is Skyblock.

Skyblock is a map that consists of many small floating islands with only a limited amount of basic resources. Your goal is to finish all the given challenges and become a Skyblock Master. In order to achieve that you have to use your whole Minecraft knowledge and the provided resources from the other islands. By progressing through the advancements you will unlock more challenges, resources and map areas.

Why 'Revamp'?

Skyblock has been existing for nearly a decade now. While this indeed underlines the uniqueness of this map, Minecraft has gone through tremendous changes and improvements over the years. This revamp should do the old Skyblock Map justice and provide the same experience as the original version used to do.

While staying true to what Skyblock has always been about, our map features many, if not almost all of the latest improvements like the custom advancements and datapack system, new islands with new content and updated challenges across all three dimensions.

What's new?

Glad you asked.
Here's a list of some of the new content this map has to offer:
  • 270 advancements, including almost all of the classic Skyblock challenges
  • Over 10 new islands in all 3 dimensions
  • Some of them feature new biomes
  • Two vanilla bossfights
  • Progressing system using the worldborder
  • Synchronized advancements for multiplayer
  • Failsave system to prevent softlocks
  • Slight gameplay changes for balancing reasons
...and much more! Go ahead and find out yourself!

Important information

  1. Currently the map works in 1.16.1 only! Other versions are work in progress and will be uploaded soon.
  2. The map is using command blocks. Vanilla servers are recommended in order for them to work correctly. Don't forget to enable them on your server!
  3. Disable spawn protection on your server.
  4. You have to be an operator on your server to be able to run the setup functions.
  5. We recommend maximizing your render distance, if your performance allows it.
  6. Some challenges require deep knowledge into Minecraft, as the map intentionally does not offer many hints. We do not recommend playing this map if you are new to the game.
  7. Any changes in gameplay are enclosed in the text file provided in the download. (recipes and loot tables)
  8. We would appreciate you for crediting us, if you play this map in a video!
  9. In case you find any bugs or exploits, feel free to message us.

  • Fixed a bug where you could not obtain Nether Quartz and Crimson Nylium via bartering
    copy and paste the new 'datapacks' folder inside your world folder (overwrite the old one) to fix this if you downloaded the map prior to that date!
  • Fixed a bug where the End Portal would not appear
    type '/function nether:endportal' near to where the end portal should appear to fix this if you downloaded the map prior to that date!

I have a question, how can I expand the barrier?

The barrier will be expanded by progressing through the advancements. You can always look at the advancements by pressing the shortcut key (depending on your controls) or by pressing Esc -> Advancements.

The purple advancements are the key advancements, all of which have to be completed to progress and expand the barrier. Each of the first 3 stages has its own advancement tree with some of them being purple, these are the ones you should focus on. To be able to access the End you will have to visit every island and complete all the advancements though, even the white ones.

Thank you! The challenges are all implemented in the advancements, which represent the overall progression of the player. Most of the og challenges are worked into the respective categories (Craft 10 fences for example would be in the Crafting category here)

Thank you for your feedback! The goal of this map was to implement the latest features while keeping up the old Skyblock's flair in any of the islands. That's why we deliberately refrained from pasting structures into the world, like DrTrog did in his map. It actually has been our motivation to create this map in the first place because noone else seemed to have done it before and the one by DrTrog was, in our view, too much of a difference to the original Skyblock. But as for all, tastes differ, and so they do here.

Thanks for your compliment, we are sure DrTrog worked out an astonishing map nonetheless, although we did not play it yet. The download and view numbers surely prove his effort :)
