[Surv] Skyblock

    Quote from Lilo&Stitch

    Right, sorry I should have been more specific, I mean towards the sunrise (East?), and yes I did use large platforms (I had them already built). I used extra grass for the testing purposes, I had 128 blocks. I tested each of the five platforms (one around the bedrock and four jutting off from it) for 10 minecraft days each. I stayed 24 blocks away from the test platform on each occasion. The 128 blocks of grass was divided into four areas of grass in each quadrant of the large platforms. Only the platform heading towards the sunrise spawned any animals. I use vanilla minecraft except for the too many items mod.

    I don't know if it is a peculiarity to 1.9.5 or I was just unlucky, someone else would need to run a similar test to confirm or deny it. I have some time tonight so I might re run the test and see what happens :smile.gif:

    Edit: I'll take screenies this time too!

    Ah I see hah (I assumed towards the east but wasn't sure :tongue.gif:). Have fun rerunning the tests, would be interesting if they did end up on the same platform

    I tried it and it is very fun, you should try it in multiplayer!
    Also if my post helped to answer your question, or if you found it funny. (Click the (+) Box!)

    Re-running now :smile.gif: With exactly 80 blocks of grass on each platform this time :smile.gif: And all four platforms running simultaneously. So far I have two chickens spawned on one platform, but its only day 2. I'm also remaining on a tower in the centre so as not to reload any chunks unfairly. (It's not very exciting just standing there :tongue.gif:)

    It is nice to know that animals do spawn in 1.9.5 though :smile.gif:

    1.9.5 Animal spawn test results:

    Four platforms starting 24 blocks from the bedrock block, one platform in each direction. Each platform is 9x9 containing 80 blocks of grass and the centre block is cobblestone. Each platform is identical and throughout the testing period I did not move from a central pillar. The test ran for 2 hours.


    Yellow block: One cow, two sheep, four chickens, one pig.


    Red block: Four pigs.


    Blue block: One sheep.


    Green block: Three pigs and one sheep.


    Conclusion
    Animal spawning has been fixed in 1.9.5 and given enough time you should be able to spawn animals on any patch of grass in your skyblock world. Make sure your block of grass is as large as you can make it (you can always rip up the grass later) and well lit.

    hi, awesome map having lots of fun with it. just thort adding 4 dimonds and another 3 blocks of lava into the map would be intresting, as it would open up new chalenges like: enchanting table, and lava baced chalenges (theres an infinit lava trick like water that uses 4 bits of lava) you could also then have a infint water sorce in neather. just a few idears any way thanks it was cool :tongue.gif:

    PLEASE READ THESE VERSIONS ARE NOT THE SAME AS THE ONES POSTED ABOVE!
    The challenges, are not available in these previous versions. Some people have requested the 1st versions that were made in minecraft beta 1.7.3, so I posted them here.

    Previous SkyBlock 1.0
    Download Previous 1.0

    Previous SkyBlock 1.1
    Land Mass increased.
    Download Previous 1.1

    Note: Removing the block that you spawned on, and not placing a block back, (So if there is no block on your spawn point) then dieing may spawn you elsewhere as it is too small to pick a spawn close by, so it spawns you on the mainland, and it will be impossible to get back, Be careful! (This is fixed for the versions that are above this spoiler.)

    Instructions on how to install the map and if you are having trouble downloading the map:

    Place what version you downloaded in the saves folder, to reach your saves folder follow the instructions below.

    Windows:
    %appdata%\.minecraft\saves

    Windows XP/Vista:
    %appdata%\.minecraft\saves

    Windows 7:
    C:\Users\*YourName*\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves

    Mac:
    Users/*YourName*/Library/Application Support/Minecraft/Saves

    Linux:
    Go to view options
    Check the 'show hidden folders' box
    Go to your home directory
    Open '.minecraft'
    Open
    'Saves'

    Are you having issue's downloading the map?

    You might click download in mediafire and it will just refresh the page, and not let you download or just show the “processing download request” instead of providing an option to download. This occurs because mediafire is prohibiting some countries from downloading at a certain time. You can easily solve this by deleting your browser cookies.

    Google Chrome Users: Click on the Customize button -> Option -> Under the hood -> Clear browsing history -> Make sure Delete Cookies and other site data is checked -> Click Clear browsing data

    Internet Explorer Users: Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Delete… -> select only Cookies -> Delete

    Mozilla Firefox Users: Go to Tools -> Options -> Privacy tab -> Show cookies -> Scroll down and look for mediafire cookies folder and delete it

    If you are using other browsers, Just find a way to delete the cookies.

    Thank you TheJupiterSailfish for the first series of SkyBlock!
    Check out his channel for part 2,3, etc. (He is playing an old version of 1.1 that was made in 1.7.3)
