Introduction
Hey everyone,

Server Details
The following information is the basic server details for our upcoming reset. To see new features, keep scrolling until you see the "Features" section.

Features
Along with heavy balancing improvements, fixes and gameplay mechanic changes we have some new content this season for you all to enjoy!

NEW SPAWN!
This season we have quite possibly the best spawn that Cloud has ever seen. We told the team to go above and beyond and create a Fantasy style spawn as if you were in a separate world, and they captured that vision perfectly.

This is version 1.0 of the spawn, we had many more edits made that i'd like to save so there's still a little suprise left!



Economy Overhaul
We are completely overhauling the meta, with new economy changes to fix the current balancing issues.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to view all the balancing, reward, and gameplay changes in list format.

We will also be releasing a full economy sheet on Wednesday, October 9th.

Voting
We've significantly buffed voting rewards. In addition to the existing rewards, you will get a vote key for every site you vote on.

This season, we're adding 1 hour of /fly access for each vote. This means if you don't have the fly perk from a donor rank, you can now access this perk every day.

You can also win additional fly time, value blocks, lucky blocks and other skyblock boosting items from the vote crate key.



Island Prestige
Coming to Cloud is the all new Island Prestiges! Players can spend in-game currency to upgrade certain limitations of their island that were not currently upgradeable like Hopper Upgrades, Better Cobblestone Generator Value Blocks and Island Team Size. An islands prestige will be viewable on their is top menu.



Island Upgrades
We have removed the space coins multiplier upgrade, this comes with the change that we will be offering higher space coin drop rates for all islands, which you can spend in the newly revamped Space Coins shop!

We have changed the mob drop multiplier upgrade to go as followed, x1.1, x1.2, x1.3, x1.4, x1.5.



Island Permissions Upgrade
We’ve overhauled our island permissions system allowing Island leaders to have more control over the members of their island as well as the guests. This includes the ability to toggle flight for all guests.



Boss Summoning
Bosses will now randomly spawn in the warzone area for players to fight, free of charge. The player that defeats the boss will be treated to the same rewards as players that obtain these bosses through other means, such as Lootboxes, Crates, etc.

Boss health and damage is subject to change, however as it stands you should be able to defeat a boss on your own. To fight a boss that randomly spawns, head over to /warp pvp after a message pops up in chat.



Destroy The Core Event
A community suggested event has made its way onto Season Five. Introducing Destroy The Core!

Destroy The Core will be hosted by either staff or on a set interval (every x hours), and is an event where an obsidian block will spawn on a platform near /warp pvp. Once the event starts, there will be a hologram displayed above this obsidian block, displaying how many breaks your faction has.

The first faction to break the obsidian block 100 times will win prizes.



IS-Top Improvements
We’ve made several improvements to our island top menu. This includes faster update times as well as adding more blocks like spawners to count towards your island level. Different spawners will all have their own values and worth.



Space Coins Revamp
We’ve made several improvements to space coins including revamping the shop by adjusting current item prices and adding new items you can spend your space coins on. The special shop will pick a couple of items at random each day and discount them for the day.

We have also increased space coins drop rate for all islands by default and removed the space coins island upgrade.



Space Station
The Space Station is a feature we added the last map that was well received. We realize the rewards are not good enough for the challenges and that’s why this map we have completely revamped the loot table for Space Station, as well as several other features.



Galaxy Pass
The Galaxy Pass was a great concept, however, the challenges and rewards inside of it were not the right fit for what we intended it to be. As such, we're reworking the challenges to fit more in line with direct Skyblock gameplay, as well as making the rewards far better with more challenging subsequent missions.

As a reminder, all Galactic rank holders get the galaxy pass completely free of charge on all three of our servers.



Balancing Changes
We're making the following balancing changes to allow for a better playing experience:
  • Moved /fly to Cyclone rank
  • Increase mob coin drop rate
  • Sugar cane will no longer auto break when in crop hopper chunk.
    • We also have a raised price
  • Increased the money given from money generator to match the worth of other generator types
Rewards
By popular request we’ve decided to completely revamp all of our existing rewards, This includes:
  • Loot Fishing & Mining Has been buffed
  • A brand new Spacecoin shop with usable limited-time items has been added
  • Galaxy Pass has a whole new set of challenges and rewards
  • The Space Station has also been redone to include new challenges with better rewards
Gameplay Changes (Misc.)
We've fixed the following issues in this upcoming reset or added smaller features which weren't worth making a separate section about:
  • Island Team’s are now limited to 10 players by default
  • Fixed alien afk radius not the same size as a player radius
  • You can no longer capture outpost unless you have armor on
  • Removed all pvp inventory pets
  • Removed blocks / useless items out of the duel kits
  • You can now use your jobs on any island not just your own
  • There is now a pvp kit and potpvp kit that you can use in /duel
  • Your island level will now automatically update when you join the server
  • Your is top position will no longer be removed when you kick a user
  • Mars hoppers and aliens can no longer be cross-linked to different islands
  • Players can now permanently set their /ptime
  • Changed koth times to 4AM EST, 8AM EST
  • Carter has been banned from the game
Conclusion
We've put a lot of effort into changing the gameplay style of Cloud, we look forward to seeing you guys test it out and make for another great season!

See you soon,
Charles & Cam
