You may have tried out skyblock before and found yourself having a hard time getting enough materials and expanding your island. Gathering Materials: -Build a cobble generator TIP: if your cobble generator set-up fails horribly and you end up with a obsidian. Don't panic. You can right click the obsidian with an empty bucket to get back a lava bucket. -Expand the island to fill the area below the tree with cobble so that it will catch all the saplings that drop from the leaves. -Make sure you get as much dirt as possible for farming later. TIP: If you fall off your island, quickly type in /is to teleport back to your island so that you will not lose your items. Chances are that you will die, however, your items will be there when you re-spawn. TIP: If you use /challenges, a window will pop up and if you complete those challenges you can get new materials!! Expanding your Island: -Expand your island in a square or rectangle sort of fashion -Do not expand your island using dirt (you will see why later) -Use cobble for now -Once it's pretty wide, continue expanding by building walls around the perimeter. Now you can add levels to your island. -Once you're done with the walls, build an external platform for a tree farm. make about 10 tree slots. Dirt blocks should be placed at least 4 blocks away from the nearest dirt block. -Now you should get enough wood to continue expanding with planks instead. It will now be more efficient than cobblestone. TIP: If you need some extra materials, try /is warps to go to some skyblock shops that use meebles rather than SB Coins. TIP: Using stone bricks instead of cobblestone will get your /is level higher faster. Thanks for reading! Happy Skyblocking!
