Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make money?
You can make money by selling DoD currency Emeralds by right clicking with them to "use" them. These can be obtained from Parkour,
 Dungeons, Challenges, and other activities on the Server.
Parkour gives you money when looting the chest at the end as well.
When you kill mobs that are in Dungeons you get money.
When you Vote, and get a key for the Voting Crate at spawn, you have a chance to receive money and other items.
You can sell items to players by hand privately, use /auc, /shop, or set up SignShops on your island.
Sell items to the server using /sell.
You earn money by completing Challenges.
You can earn more money from Challenges, a neat title, and access to a special Member+ area by applying for Member+.

How do I invite someone to my island?
"/is invite (name)" then that person has to "/is accept"
WARNING: When you create, leave, join, or reset an island, your inventory is cleared!

How big are the islands?
The island size is 247x247. There is a 1-block gap between islands.

Can you add things to the spawn shop so I can sell items to spawn?
No. This would unbalance the economy that we have. There are plenty of ways to make money. See the above question.
For more info on this question with an explanation, click HERE

How do you get Seeds?
Bonemeal a Grass Block, then punch the grass that grows. You can get Bones from Skeletons that spawn on your island, or in Dungeons. Or you can buy the Bones/Bonemeal/Seeds from other players.

Does fire spread?
Nope! Fire spread is turned off.

My vote didn't work! What happened?
You most likely did not complete it correctly. Make sure you solve the captcha correctly. Make sure you put your name in EXACTLY as it is in game. For example, my name is FaliniFyreheart NOT falinifyreheart. Make sure you click the Vote button. Did you get a confirmation page?

I didn't get my vote rewards!
Make sure you use the "/claim all" command. This is in place so you can receive the tokens on the server of your choice.
You can spend tokens in the "/tokenstore" or "/ts" which includes fly time, special tools, weapons, keys for the Voting Crate at Spawn, and player heads! You can see what you can get in the crate by left clicking it.

How do I get more Dirt?
You can get more Dirt by buying it at the spawn shop at "/warp shop" ... You can earn more Dirt by doing Challenges and Parkour. Some give Dirt as a reward! There is also a chance to get Dirt/Grass by Voting and getting Voting Crate Keys to use at Spawn. Some player shops have Dirt for sale as well.

How do I go to the Nether?
The Medium challenge "Adept Builder" on the 2nd line gives you the Obsidian you need to make a Nether Portal! Or you can buy Obsidian from players.

Can I get to The End?
Yes! One of the last Skyblocks Challenges on page one gives you the materials needed to travel to The End.

How do I increase my island level?
It's simple - build! Some blocks are worth more than others. Stone Bricks are worth more than Cobblestone. Ore blocks are valuable, such as Emerald Blocks and Diamond Blocks. You'll figure it out! Tip: Variety is the spice of life!

How do I craft this item?
"/erecipe (name)" to see how to craft it! For example, "/erecipe repeater"
You can also check the Minecraft Wiki. For a link to it while in-game, type /wiki

How do I get animals on my island?
You can earn Spawn Eggs by completing Challenges, doing the Archer Dungeon, trading at Member+ Island. You can also buy/trade for them from players. Sometimes there are special events or parkour that may give spawn eggs!
You could also change your island biome and make a fitting area for animals to spawn. (Grass + Light)

How do I activate my MCMMO skill?
Hold the correct tool (or empty hand for Unarmed) and Shift+Right click to activate your skill.

I died, can I have my stuff back?
I'm sorry, but if you died, you died. That's just part of Minecraft. We don't have KeepInventory on for a reason. This is Skyblocks and it is meant to be a challenge. However, if you died because of a glitch or bug in the system, please let a staff member know about it or submit a ticket with what happened, what time it happened, including your timezone!

Can you make a public mine or experience grinder?
The public mine would take away from the feel of Skyblocks. Players can make Cobblestone and Stone generators. You can get all kinds of ores from completing Challenges, and doing the Parkour and Dungeons. Players can also make their own experience grinders. Make a mob farm, but don't make the fall fatal. Just enough so they'll live but be hurt!

Can you sell spawners? Can you let us earn spawners?
No. More info HERE

What mods are allowed?
Check out this thread for information on this.

Can I have a nickname?
If you purchase the Grass Rank from the Donation Store, you will have access to "/nick" with colors, along with some other cool perks!

What do the donor ranks get?
You can click "Donation Store" on the top bar and click on the picture of each rank to see what you will get. You can also check out the donor rank guide here. When you buy a rank, you get all the previous rank's benefits as well!

How do I make a SignShop?
Check out this page for more info.
To link to a picture of this in-game use http://tinyurl.com/dodsignshoptut

SignShop Help
Place the chest you will have your shop items in. Put in the items and quantity you want to buy/sell for each time someone clicks.

Sign:
[buy] or [sell]
Description line
Description line
$(price)


Anything can go in the description lines.
Use a Redstone Dust to left click the chest, then the sign. This will link them.

For example, if you wanted to sell 16 Carrots for $25, put 16 Carrots in the chest. Make your shop sign like this:

[buy]
16 Carrots
for:
$25


Redstone in hand, left click the chest then the sign. Now that it's linked, you can stock the rest of your chest.

When you left click on someone else's SignShop sign, it will tell you what you're buying/selling, how many, and for how much. When you right click, you will buy/sell.

How do I summon MCMMO pets?
Hold 10 of the item required, and Shift+Left Click the ground.
10 Raw Fish for a Cat, 10 Bones for a Wolf, 10 Apples for a Horse.

Will the block values be made public? Will you make a post on it?
No. You'll figure it out as you go along :)

How do you get Heads?
You have a rare chance to get them from usual Minecraft mechanics. A wither skeleton has a 2.5% chance of dropping a wither skeleton skull when killed by the player or tamed wolf. Skeleton, wither skeleton, zombie, and creeper heads are dropped by the respective mob if it dies due to a charged creeper's explosion.
You can get them from the Slayer title in /perks and from special events! You can also get them by killing mobs in general, or in dungeons!

What is Island Rank?
Your rank on the island top leaderboards. "/istop"

How do you get to the other Island Top pages?
"/is top 2" "/is top 3" etc.

Can I glitch to the top of the Nether?
You could, but you will get teleported away as soon as you go up there. This is to prevent abuse.

Is there a way to prevent a specific mob from despawning?
There sure is! Name a Name Tag and use it on the mob you don't want to disappear.
Note: Renaming a Spawn Egg does NOT work!

Could I have a birthday party? :D
You sure can! Make sure to post your birthday HERE and we will try to have a party on your special day!

I got my username changed and I can't do anything on my island! What do I do?
Send in a /ticket, including your old and new username!

Newbie Guide - WIP
Considering making an in-game place with this information and visual guides. A new /newbie area perhaps. For now, keeping this information here.

/vote for /fly time on your island
247x247 island region size
If you accidentally turn your Lava into Obsidian, use your Bucket to get your Lava back easily!
Once you come across a Magma Block, you can use that for your Cobble Gen instead of Lava. This is safer and prevents Cobble loss! You can also put a Hopper and Chest below where the Cobble forms to catch the blocks as you mine them.
Keep your island well lit to prevent getting killed by mobs. Have a dark platform for mob spawning.
To begin, a cobble gen and a small tree farm will help you expand.
Using slabs instead of full blocks will double how much you are able to expand! This is useful early on. You can also build the slabs on the bottom half of the block so mobs won't spawn.
Make a platform of your entire area at a low Y level (Y1 or 0.5 if you can). This will prevent you from losing items and falling into the void. This will also grant a huge boost to your island level.
Use "/vs toggle" to enable or disable the void saving teleport. If it is enabled, if you fall into the void you will be teleported to a safe spot, but you will have 1 Hunger left.
2x2 trees provides more Wood.
Use Logs to make Charcoal for Fuel
MCMMO's Treefeller is very useful for chopping down trees! Shift + Right Click with an Axe in your hand, then chop the bottom log of a tree.
Melons and Pumpkins need 2 Dirt: One for the seed stalk, and one for the Melon or Pumpkin block itself.
Sand and Dirt make Sugarcane grow the same, so use whatever is easier for you to get. It is recommended to save Sand for Cactus and Glass.
Play with a friend - Teamwork is faster, more fun, and more productive.
Keep the bare necessities in your inventory when going around your island. This way in case you die and lose things, it won't be as bad.
If you find yourself falling off your island and can't fly in time, or have no /fly time, type "/ih" to quickly return to your island home! Then at least your items will be safe on the floor of your /ih.
Crop farms will help you complete Challenges, and keep your hunger bar full! You can also "/sell" some crops for $Skybucks.
Upgrade your Cobble generator when you can, or even make a Stone gen!
There is a free Member+ rank you can obtain! Doing /mp in-game will show you more info and give you a link to the forum post. Member+ gives you a custom Tag, +5% money from challenges, a bonus token when using your /dailybonus, access to /is trust, and /mpisland, a special area with free loot and trades!


/perks, biomes, tpa, light eater, island warp, etc.
Mob farm tips - mob cap limits, link to basic mob farm..
Parkour and Dungeons for fun and loot for more materials, money, exp.
SF tips? Composter, Saw Mill, Androids, Armor, Other items like Infused Magnet..
