    Dirtblock is now live!

    [​IMG]

    It appears that the creation of Skyblock on the Sandlot server caused an imbalance in the Universe. There was far too much sky, and not enough dirt... and now the Universe has corrected it. Trubuhl was the first one to stumble into this. His account is here:



    So it turns out that Dirtblock is just like Skyblock - only with dirt! It's like Skyblock turned inside-out. It is a different kind of challenge. Players start in a small chamber in a huge chunk of dirt floating in the sky, and must use the few resources they are given to survive and thrive. There are lots of “challenges” which can be completed, and each challenge gives rewards which can assist you in improving your dirtblock island and carving out your own little paradise.

    A couple of things you should know:

    You must be on the latest version of Minecraft to join Dirtblock.

    WHITELISTING IS NO LONGER REQUIRED TO ENTER DIRTBLOCK
    . Just use the sign in the lobby way up the stairs next to Skyblock.

    Finally, if you get claustrophobic just dig straight in any direction and after a bit you'll break outside.

    Have fun!

    Yay I'm enjoying it thanks Trubs!
    So I was thinking you know those signs on the highway sometimes where it says one more drink CAN hurt.
    I have started to think "One more dirt block CAN hurt" ;)

    It is a separate world. You will have 2 islands: sky & dirt.

    A moderater has to whitelist you for dirt block separately.

    Ask a mod in-game to whitelist you. Right now it's to prevent too many people creating an island at once and crashing the server. The server has to create 1.6million blocks for each island so it causes a certain amount of lag.

    Thanks @trubuhl and @c0wg0d for making Dirtblock happen. It presents it's own unique set of challenges. Particularly Creepers doing damage. . . . I keep blowing myself and my spawner up! :creeper::creeper::creeper::creeper::creeper::46::46::46::46:
