BIG CHANGES ARE COMING

 BIG CHANGES ARE COMING...

       Hello CraftRealms. I know it's been a very long time since I been here but I wanted to skip all the boring sad stories and get to some news and plans for the future of this server and community. 

       A few days ago the server almost shut down because I can no longer afford the current Server Box. An old friend of mine contacted me and offered to give me a second chance to keep this server and community alive. We are now economically secured for a little while and the only thing I have to focus on is the servers and the community. This is why I am making this post. The staff and I had a chat and here are some of the plans I would like to share.

1. The biggest thing is that we are making the move from Cracked to Premium. We feel like, given the fact that Minecraft is over 10 years old now, most players that are really dedicated to the game have already bought a copy. This is a move I been wanting to make for a very long time. Given the fact that our community is much smaller now, it makes a lot more sense to make this switch now. We talked with the staff and if there is a dedicated player that has been on CR for a long time and still does not have Premium MC account we will all chip in and get that person an account. 

2. We are going to remove some of the servers that are empty all the time. This way we save money on hosting by getting a smaller machine. There should still be NO lag so do not get concerned with that.

3. I have removed the shop for now as we are not sure what will remain the same or change.

There are a lot more changes planned but we are not ready to share yet. I know that most of you will love the new updates, but we also know that some of you might not like some of these changes. As humans, we hate change because it puts us in a new unfamiliar environment, but I ask you to give it a chance and stay with an open mind. Know that all the changes are done with the intent to grow the community and also help people who are already here have a better time.

Thank you for reading. Stay tuned for more updates to come :)

SkyBlock Update Changelog

Reneqxde OPVoterFakeOwnerEliteUnited Paws posted Sep 1, 18

Admin Notes
▪ Server has been reset, this was needed in order for me to implement certain changes as they would have altered major aspects of the server. If I had altered plugins and continued the server to run it'd become unbalanced for new players as existing players would have a head start with earning money and island levels. Some plugins were also removed which would mean certain things would be rendered useless, for example the custom enchantments on armour and tools.

Server Join Book
▪ An information book has been added to a players join inventory which details basic commands if a player needs any help with finding/using certain commands.

SkyBlock Plugin
▪ 6 starter islands have been added to allow for more choice - these islands vary in difficulty so choose wisely.
▪ 250 block points is now worth 1 island level instead of 100 per level.
▪ Mineral blocks no longer make a major contribution to your overall island level. As a result grinding to be the top island takes more time and requires you to build up your island instead of just placing mineral blocks on your island. This is subject to change at anytime.
▪ The /island top command now opens a nicer looking gui and you can also view more information about a specific island such as the spawners they have.

Hoppers
▪ Hoppers can only be bought and not crafted.
▪ There will be a limit of 300 hoppers per island.

Hunger
▪ Hunger has been slowed down to around 2x slower than normal to allow players to focus more on playing instead of having to eat all the time.

Nether
▪ The nether will now change seeds each time the server restarts - this is to minimise the use of /sethomes to save the location of a good fortress.

Spawners
▪ The ability to upgrade spawners has been removed - it may return if I decide it needs to be added.

Menus
▪ Menus have been slightly tweaked - there's also a new custom menu for the island panel.

SkyBlock Top 10
▪ Added a hologram to display the top 10 islands on the server.

Shops
▪ Sell prices for some ores have been reduced by 50%.
▪ Poppiers have been removed - refer to IronGolems section of the changelog.
▪ A new shop has been added that sells decorative heads - there are thousands to choose from so you're spoilt for choice.

Crates
▪ Added CratesReloaded!
▪ There are 3 crates - Tier I, Tier II and Tier III. View them at /warp crates.
▪ Keys are currently only given/earned in your weekly kits.

Kits
▪ Kits have been buffed and as such have become weekly kits instead of daily kits. You can still only claim the member kit and your donor ranks kit!
▪ Weekly Kit that contains crate keys has been added
▪ Each kit receives 1 key for each of the three crates found at /warp crate.

Mine
▪ Mine is now purely for mining - no wood, glass, grass or other stone family blocks.
▪ Percentage rates of mineral ores and blocks has been reduced slightly.

SilkSpawners
▪ All players now have the ability to place and silk spawners.
▪ You will also be unable to break spawners using a pickaxe without silk touch.
▪ Spawners will be placed directly into your inventory upon breaking them.

Experience
▪ You can now convert your earned EXP into bottle form using the command /xpbottle <amount>.
▪ There is a cooldown between uses - donators have a shorter cooldown than members who recieve the default cooldown time.

Money
▪ You can now convert your earned $$$ into a banknote using the /withdraw command. You can also use the /deposit command if you've traded or bought banknotes from another player.

Bonus Experience
▪ If you are near a spawner it will grant you some bonus experience - the radius is around 40 blocks or so.

IronGolems
▪ Iron Golems will no longer drop poppies, they will only drop iron upon being killed.

Custom Enchantments
▪ 80+ Enchantments
▪ Protection Crystal
▪ Black/White Scrolls​
▪ Destroy/Success Rate​
▪ Enchantment Limiter​
▪ Magical Dust​
▪ Tinkerer​
▪ Blacksmith​
▪ Lost Books​
▪ 9 tiers of enchantment books

Ore Generator
▪ Regular players and donators can all obtain the same blocks from the ore generator.
▪ Some ranks have slightly better % rates.
▪ Member & Bronze have Tier 1, Silver and Gold have Tier 2, Elite and FakeOwner have Tier 3.

Donater Effects
▪ Wings
▪ Block Trails
▪ Rain Trails
