Hello fellow Savage Games players, you may have a question in mind for our staff team and we will work with you in order to help you in any way we can, but first, here are some Frequently Asked Questions. Q1) How do I log on to the server? To log onto the server, begin by logging into your MineCraft account and clicking the ‘PLAY’ button. Next, click on the ‘Multiplayer’ button on the main MineCraft page. From here click the ‘Add Server’ button and enter the Server Address as ‘play.skybounds.com’ and click ‘Done’. Finally click on the SkyBounds server in your server list and click on ‘Join Server'. Spoiler: How To Log Into The Server - Screenshot Q2) Why can I not post a thread on the forums?

All appeals must be dealt with on the forums, and done so here. The staff member that issued the punishment normally deals with the appeal, however, a Senior Moderator or an Admin may assist you in your appeal if need be. Spoiler: How To Appeal Your Ban/Mute - Screenshot Q4) Where can I apply for staff? We are always looking for new dedicated staff members, and are happy to see new players apply. If you believe you are capable in becoming staff you can apply here, in your application, be as honest and detailed as you can be. Bear in mind you are applying for a server specific position. If you apply for staff on The First Islands you will be a staff member, however your main world will be The First Islands. Spoiler: How To Apply For Staff - Screenshot Q5) Where can I report a player who has broken the rules? All reports are either dealt with in-game or on the forums. If you see a rule breaker in-game please use the /report command. All staff on that island are notified of the report, although any reports in Money Wars alerts all staff on any server. If for some reason a staff member is not online or we need a screenshot / video for your report (For example a hacker or scammer) please upload the proof here, describing the incident in as much detail as you can. Spoiler: How To Report A Player - Screenshot Q6) How do I join one of the SkyBounds Islands and Money Wars? After you have joined our main hub you can progress on to any of the SkyBounds islands by right clicking the compass in your hotbar, from this menu you can choose wether you want to play on the new islands or BETA islands. If you wish to play the new islands simply click on one of the blocks on the menu, if you wish to play on the BETA islands then click on the lower right block, and choose one of the following islands. If you wish to play Money Wars, right click on the compass, and choose the golden ingot in the top right hand corner. Spoiler: How To Join Our Servers - Screenshot Q7) It says 'Kicked whilst connecting to [island name] Premium Reserved Slots'. How do I get past this? You must remember that SkyBounds is still in BETA mode, therefore we have a cap on the amount of players each server can hold. The server caps for The First Islands and Magic is currently 300, whilst the rest of the islands are only 275. We upgrade these slots when we can but as for now, if you cannot join a server as it is full, all you have to do it simply buy a rank [Ultra, Legend or Savage] from here. This will enable you to join any island mostly whenever you wish. There are an additional 50 slots onto of the non ranked slots, meaning for example The First Islands cap for non donors is 300, however, an additional 50 players with ranks can join the server. With a rank you should be able to join 24/7. Q8) How do I create a new island and travel there on SkyBounds? To create a new island type ‘/is new’ in chat. This will generate a new island for you, to teleport to your island type in chat ‘/is go [username]’ Spoiler: How To Create A New Island - Screenshot Q9) How do I join my friends island? If you wish to join your friends island you need to receive an invite from them, they can do this by using the ‘/is invite [username]’ command. Once you receive an invitation, it will show in chat that you have been invited to an island which you can click on in chat to accept the invitation. If you miss this in chat, you can type ‘/is go' which will open a GUI in which you can accept an invitation. To accept it this way, click on the book at the top right hand corner and then on the grass/gold block (Blocks depends on wether the island is premium or not) to accept the invitation. Spoiler: How To Join Your Friend's Island - Screenshots Q10) How do I get a premium island? To unlock the premium island you must purchase a rank from our Buycraft here. The current ranks are; Ultra, Legend and Savage. Once you buy one of these ranks you will not have to reset your island, the boarder will automatically increase to a 400x400 area. Spoiler: Ranks - Screenshot Q11) How do I level up? Levelling up is achieved by completing challenges, both campaign and daily. To access your challenges use the command ‘/challenges’ or ‘/ch’. The XP bottle shows your current level and progress towards your next level up. Beneath this, you have your campaign challenges (On the left) and daily challenges (On the right). You unlock a new campaign challenge after completing your last one, these are designed to help you create a better island and familiarise you with our server. The daily challenges reset every 24hours wether you have completed them or not, if you have completed them you can, however, purchase another three daily challenges in exchange for stars. Spoiler: How To Level Up - Screenshots Q12) How do I enchant and disenchant? You cannot enchant until you have reached player level 10 and completed the enchantment quests. Once you have reached level 10 you can then craft an enchantment table and start your enchanting quests. We have customised the enchant table GUI so you can now disenchant items alongside enchanting. To enchant an item, place the item you wish to enchant and the enchanted book in the enchantment table GUI and click on the enchantment table in the GUI. To disenchant an item, place the item in the enchantment table and click on the red stained glass. From here choose which enchant you wish to take off the item and then choose one of the wools. The light green wool provides the best chances to disenchant, therefore would be optimal to choose this.

Q14) How do I sell to the vendors in the market? To use the market please refer to here. This link will re-direct you to a thread with a video showing you how to sell items in the market. Q15) How do I get a vault? In order to get a vault you must speak to the ‘Banker’ vendor in the market. After you speak with him he will give you five quests that you must complete in order to get a vault and sell iron/gold/diamond/emerald blocks to him. Once you complete the challenges you can then access the vault with the different vaults which are located in each outpost and at spawn. (Savage rank has access to /vault in any safe zone) You can purchase a vault in the vault’s GUI by clicking on the ender chest, bear in mind you can only purchase one vault every five days.

Spoiler: How To Purchase From The Store - Screenshots Q19) When I try to checkout, the PayPal button does not work. If this problem occurs, one reason may be that you have a chargeback rate of over 10%. If so, you cannot purchase anything from the Buycraft in the future as it blocks all purchases for your account. If you have this problem and have never charged back there are a few options you can try. Close your web browser down and re-open it. Delete your web history and cookies and try again.
