    This week in Skybounds, we've made some tweaks to the combat leveling system & introduced new tiered rankings. A slew of new island templates have also been released!


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Combat Ranks (Highest to Lowest):
    [​IMG] Bedrock - Min Level Threshold: 7,500 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Obsidian - Min Level Threshold: 4,500 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Emerald - Min Level Threshold: 3,000 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Diamond - Min Level Threshold: 2,000 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Gold - Min Level Threshold: 1,500 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Iron - Min Level Threshold: 1,000 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Coal - Min Level Threshold: 750 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Stone - Min Level Threshold: 500 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Wood - Min Level Threshold: 250 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Grass - Min Level Threshold: 100 [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Dirt - Min Level Threshold: -1 [​IMG]


    This tiered system will help better pair similar skill-level players for combat. Players are only capable of fighting players within the same rank & one tier above or below theirs. The size/ level range of these tiers varies as you gain rank, meaning that higher ranks will offer you access to larger pools of players to fight against.

    A loss will normally result in a drop of 5 levels (unless inside a combat floor), so fight carefully to maintain the rank you want! If an opponent is two ranks lower than you, a loss will result in them gaining all the combat levels you lose. If they are two ranks higher and you lose, you will only lose slightly over half the normal combat level loss value. If they are within one rank of you, you'll lose three-fourths of the normal combat level loss value.

    New to combat? When a player is first calibrating their level they should be able to battle anyone. Forge your battle skills against others and begin your climb of the combat rank ladder!

    We hope that this new update to the system will allow the combat gameplay of Skybounds to feel more dynamic! We have many more features on the way based off of these ranks, so stay tuned!

    New Island Templates:
    These last two months have been dedicated to the members of our community, who have taken the time to build amazing island templates for everyone to enjoy. That being said, this weeks update is bringing specific members of the community, the ability to test out some fun and crazy Void Islands. Void Islands are similar to regular islands, except these islands come without any land attached. No more effort is needed when it comes to clearing out ones island! Although these Islands do not come packed with typical premium benefits, we still believe that they will be enjoyed among everyone! Here are a few of the Island Templates shown below, however, we have over 30 new templates added this week between all worlds.

    Want to grab a new Void Island Template? Simply reset your island to start over, and upon creating a new island, these selections will be presented to you on the Island Menu. Please keep in mind that although we added new Island Templates, you will still have the availability to select a Basic or Premium island if you prefer.


    Protected Bedrock Extension:
    [​IMG]

    Island Protection zones just got a lot more user friendly! A change that will be effecting all newly generated islands, is the ability to place blocks within ones protected Island spawn point above the void. Any blocks that are placed above the void and inside of ones protected region, will convert into bedrock. This will be essentially helpful to those who wish to experiment with our new Void Islands. Build a bedrock path out to your free build area, and begin to bring your Island creations to life! You will be able to place blocks anywhere below your Spawn point Y coordinates. That means no building bedrock structures above and beyond your Island spawn. Only the Owner of the island will be able to place blocks within the protected regions. This is to avoid any unnecessary bedrock being placed where the island owner may not want it. BEDROCK PLACEMENT CAN NOT BE UNDONE. Please place wisely, for the only way to clean up your island of unwanted blocks, is to reset it. Server staff will not assist you with removing bedrock that was placed accidentally.


    Island Directory:

    Islands have received an update! Players are now able to search through islands they are invited to and the public directory of islands. This means you won’t have to worry about matching an online player. To access the new directory UI simply type /island.

    what would be great would be if we would receive rewards at the end of each month depending on where we are in the ranking system. like a random ckit key if ur in the top 2 tiers and maybe some stars for the lower tiers. immortal stars would also be pretty cool to add/ skydrops
