    Skyblock and Dirtblock have been updated to Minecraft 1.10.2!

    You must use a Minecraft 1.10.2 client to play on Skyblock and Dirtblock.

    What has changed?

    The permissions have been fixed:
    • You can once again make other island members the leader of the island.
    • Invites work again.
    • You can now view the island info and island level for any island.
    • VIPs can have 8 island members again.
    The tiers of challenges have been renamed.

    The blaze rod and ghast tear purchase signs at spawn have been removed. These items will now be awarded in challenges.

    The netherportal challenge has been updated and now additionally rewards 4 blaze rods.
    The pearlcollector challenge has been updated and now rewards chorus flowers and end stone.
    The expertbuilder challenge has been renamed to craftybuilder.
    The skylord/dirtlord challenge has been renamed to expertbuilder/dirtexpert.
    The glassmaker challenge description has been updated to note the glass blocks are required.

    The challenge descriptions have all been updated to show the exact rewards you will get instead of '???'.

    You can now create challenge signs to aid you in completing challenges.

    Let's take the cactusfarmer challenge as an example. Place down a chest and put a bunch of cactus in it. Get a sign, hold shift, and place the sign on the chest. Fill out the first and second lines of the sign exactly like this:

    Then press done. If you did it right, the text on the sign will change to state the challenge and description. Then simply right click the sign to complete the challenge! This is a great way to do a challenge like melonfarmer, pumpkinfarmer, or cactusfarmer multiple times in a row without spamming challenge commands in your chat or trying to click the challenge icon over and over. The sign will even work on chests fed by hoppers!

    You can now trust players to build on your island without inviting them or requiring that they join your island.

    If you need help creating a cobblestone generator or just want someone to help you build an awesome new house, you can now use /island trust <player> to give them permissions to build on your island. If you no longer want a trusted player to build on your island, use /island untrust <player>.

    There are new challenges!

    There are 27 new challenges to complete, spread across three new tiers. I am not going to spoil the new challenges, so you will have to get into Skyblock/Dirtblock and find out for yourselves what they are!

    Many of the new challenges are references. See if you can figure out all of them!

    I would like to extend a very special thank you to @LifeLearner and @hamsrus1 for assisting me in figuring out all the challenge requirements and rewards, and of course for the rest of the moderator team on their input in this endeavor as well. I have been brainstorming and wanting to add these challenges since September, 2015! I'm so glad the day has finally arrived!

    If you notice any bugs with the new challenges, please be honest and do not keep items that you didn't earn fairly. Report them to me via PM (not in bug reports) and I will fix them ASAP. Thank you, and I hope you enjoy the updated Skyblock and Dirtblock!

    Wow I know being able to build on other people's islands has been requested for a while. Okay well will the new challenges that give you new items but are old challenges be reset to give you like the first reward when you complete it?
    I can't wait to get on thanks a ton c0w, Life, and Hams and everyone else who contributed.

    I am trying to complete the challenge changemyfate I have the required items in my inventory but it won't work. It says: "You are the following items short: 3 Potion of Strength 3 Potion of Regeneration 3 Potion of Healing". It does however seem to register the cauldron.

    And thanks @c0wg0d for taking the time to code all those new challenges for us!

    I found another bug. After putting the Polar Bear Spawn Egg in a chest it turns into an egg that just says "Spawn" but it doesn't spawn anything. Tig said it did that in here inventory so idk if it has anything to do with the chest.

    Let me note that the sign will only work if placed on the front of a chest. not the sides or back.

    Not everyone is as old - old - old - old - old - old as you are trubuhl-maker!

    Whoops... did I say that with my outside voice?:oops:

    (FYI Skyblock citizens.. trubuhl keeps asking c0w to reset Skyblock. We might need to band together and permanently shun him to Dirtblock...)
