New Release Skyblock 3.0

Join us on play.planetbeacon.com
SkyBlock has been reset today, well about two times today, let's find out what changed...

Everything! Prices are up, islands are different and we have a new spawn. It kind of reminds me of our old SkyBlock, about 1 1/2 years ago. The spawn was modeled off of the old one, the islands are kind of like the original and prices are very much alike. Our old Kits are back, too!

You can grab them by donating @ store.planetbeacon.com. We really appreciate donations. :shame:

A massive thankyou to the fellow staff members for working their butts off to get this going, it was a real team effort. We shouldn't have a reset for a year or so, so make sure you get in and get going, you want to hit the ground running.

Any questions, feedback or complaints can be posted in a reply or a PM to myself, Dan or PodgieBear (Stacker).

Thanks for reading and have fun playing!

Lockie

P.S. We are working on other servers right now, too! Check for threads in the forum for ways on helping us create a server that everyone wants to play.

Questions & Answers:

Q: Where is my island????
A: We have to have resets every once in a while. Skyblock has only every had a few resets in it's very long 2 year life. We don't expect to have another reset until the end of this year.

Q: Why is _____ so EXPENSIVE?
A: Shop prices have been adjusted to attempt to make the game much more entertaining and in some ways slightly harder. Building an island shouldn't be possible overnight!

Q: My rankkkkkkk???????
A: Ranks should be just how you left them. If for some reason you don't have your rank which you purchased, please PM @D4nie3

Q: Can I have my money back????...
Hi guys,

As most of you know PlanetBeacon has experienced many ddos attacks throughout this weekend. We have recently patched these issues and ddos should no longer be a problem.
New Release /linkaccount

Hi everyone, a new command has been introduced to PlanetBeacon.

Questions will be answered below:

Q. What does this do?
A. This feature currently will only display your Minecraft username/head beside all of your posts. In the future we plan to provide much more forum integration, and this will be necessary to do that.

Q. What do I need to do?
A. First off, you must have a forum account. Go to our Minecraft server and type /linkaccount. In chat you will see a button to click. Once you click the button it should open a URL. Click confirm on our website and you're done!

First of all I would like to say Welcome to 2015! It's going to be our best year yet :)

In light of problems that we faced about two hours ago, we have now introduced new rules regarding bans/mutes. This is to prevent backlash from people saying that they were banned incorrectly, etc. Even though, in my heart, I trust the staff and back up all their decisions, these new measures must be made so you guys can trust us too. They are as follows:
  • Staff now must screenshot/record evidence to support any bans/mutes they give out. Screenshots of hacking or NCP (No Cheat Plus, how hacking preventer) alerts will not be accepted
  • Staff must hold evidence for two weeks so the appealer has adequate time to post an appeal and to request proof.
  • Appealer must not rage/rant in the shoutbox about bans.
  • Appealer must not get upset if they post an appeal after two weeks and there isn't any evidence - your ban will most likely stay if this happens.
Thanks everyone for your understanding. This new rules will become active now so we can prevent any more conflict asap.
Hey guys, so I've made a few changes to staff and I thought I would make a thread.

@Stacker13 was upgraded to Admin from Mod
@DJ_Awesome9321 was promoted to Helper
@OffTheAir will soon be a helper.
@TrinityRaider is currently a "?". He was demoted to Mod, but seems to of left.
@HarryVsDiamonds was upgraded from Helper to Mod

Factions is back from over a year ago, and its here to stay!

A couple of days ago (might be even a week) we re-released factions. Now I'm writing a thread to inform you of everything. Factions is a server based on building a base with your "faction" (group) and raiding other peoples bases in hope to become the richest, most powerful faction on the server. Basically its a whole lot of fun and not hard to get into at these early stages.

To start off, our staff team is basically staying the same on Factions. Dan is still the owner, I (LockAus) am one of the three admins along with EmuRider and Firefal(?), Trinity is back down to moderator following some abuse from him.

Secondly we have made donator ranks for factions. These donations keep PlanetBeacon alive. Recently we nearly had to close PlanetBeacon due to the poor donation rates. The ranks are as follows: Warrior, Boss, Executive, President. You can buy those here along with ranks for other servers.

Thirdly I would like to note that we are not running 1.8 as it isn't stable for now. We are planning to update before Christmas. Thanks to all the people who have donated to us over the course of the years we have been running, without you we wouldn't be here today. Also thanks to the kind people who hop on the server and have fun, it really makes us push our selves to produce better content for you.

Thanks for reading,
Lockie
