    Content Update 1
    Hey everyone!
    I'm very excited to announce the release of Content Update 1 for Skybounds! This is one of many Friday updates that we'll be releasing, and I'm very happy to introduce you to our new features.

    Let's summarize what's new...


    [​IMG]
    More Room for Players
    We've expanded slots for free players by 25, bringing our total up to 275. We plan for MUCH more expansion in the future, but as we're still in beta, we want to keep growth limited. Thank you all for the support and we hope to have space for EVERYONE in the coming weeks. :)

    [​IMG]
    More Challenges
    More campaign and daily challenges have been added to the mix. We'll be happy to compliment these additional challenges with more Level Up rewards coming next week as well.

    Introducing: Orb of Flights
    An Orb of Flight grants all visitors and members of your island the ability to fly for the time stated on the orb. Currently the only way to receive this item is from our new /kit flight kit, but we plan to make this unlockable in other means in the future as well.

    [​IMG]
    New Kits!
    New kits have been added to our shop!
    • /kit Flight - Includes an Orb of Flight that grants island fly power for 1 hour. Usable every 24 hours.
    • /kit Wool, /kit Glass, and /kit Clay - For the builders on the server. Each usable every 48 hours.
    • /kit Summoner - Includes a handful of mob spawner eggs.
    You can grab these new kits from our shop.

    [​IMG]
    Various New Commands
    New commands have been implemented to improve the general experience for our players and moderators. Some include...
    • /report - Flag a cheater for our mods to review
    • /toggles - Change settings on the fly. This menu will be expanded as we introduce new features
    • /help - Shows a list of available commands, as well as links to our site and shop
    Balances and Crafting Changes
    Various economy prices have been adjusted and crafting recipes disabled or changed. Most significant being Hoppers now are made from Iron Blocks instead of Iron Ingots. Returning soon.

    Other Misc. Changes
    • Chat channels can be hidden. Use /c <channel> hide|unhide
    • An AFK kicker keeps slots open for players wanting to play
    • God Apples can no longer be crafted
    • Redstone is limited per chunk to help fight lag
    • Pistons can no longer push liquid (use dispensers!)
    • Many many many more optmizations and backend changes
    As always, please report bugs you find and let us know what you think. :) Keep up to date with the forums every Friday as we introduce new features and content.

    We love the feedback we're seeing so far, and a big thanks to all of our donors for supporting the project.

    ~ Skybounds Team

    Yay for the farms!

    One small typo "275 players" should be 225 players!

    This is all cool and what not but what about the players who can't join because they can't donate?

    What's wrong?
    Play on minecraft 1.8+
    Go on multiplayer
    Direct connect or add server
    ip : skybounds.com
    or
    ip:play.skybound.com
    sometime you may not connect in the first try but try 3-4 times and you should get in , unless you're having a hard time getting on the server due to the server being full!

    its because the server is full and people keep spamming to request to join so its really hard to get on. ive spent like 40 mins trying to get on and i still can. Its fine though. Id rather have to server not get to full and lag.
