Our explorers have discovered a new, never-before-seen area of Skybounds. This new area has magic, essence, and strange energy flowing throughout it. We're pleased to invite the bravest adventurers to explore and uncover our new world: Welcome to The Magic Islands The Magic Islands is our first ever server expansion to help handle the demand we've been receiving from our community! Let's get right into this update. :) The Skybounds Hub - The new center of our server. When connecting to Skybounds from now on, you'll be routed through the Hub. This area will be the central point for all Skybounds servers in the future. To join The First Islands, click the first item in your hot bar. All of your stuff is still there, and won't be going anywhere. Those that want to explore the new world can do so by clicking The Magic Islands. More slots for More Players With our new hub system, it'll be easier for us to expand to accommodate more players. Each of our Skybounds servers has 300 slots for players, plus an extra 200 for our hub as a waiting lobby. A New Warzone to Explore With a new server comes a brand new warzone to explore. Over 30 new islands, 4 new outposts, and hundreds of chests and ores to discover. FAQ What data transfers between servers? Just ranks. Kits, islands, Stars, and other unlockables are otherwise per-server. If you join The Magic Islands you'll be experiencing the server just as a new player would. What happens to my island and player data then? Nothing! If you've been playing Skybounds up until now, all your data is on The First Islands. You can explore the new server without losing anything. Can I transfer my data between servers? This isn't something we offer right now. Your data (with the exception of your rank) is server locked. I got banned on Skybounds before this update, can I join The Magic Islands? Nope. Bans (and mutes) sync across all of our servers. Any other questions? Just ask us!
