We are over 72 hours into the release of CosmicSky and so far it has been a blast! We really appreciate all of the feedback you guys are giving. The developers have been diligently working to smash those bugs you guys have been reporting, they've also added some additional features as well! Here are some of the changes that have taken place within the last 72 hours.
Updates and New Features!
We've heard your suggestions and implemented the ability to see a breakdown of Island wealth. Whenever you hover over an island on /is top it will show you the breakdown, so you can see what exactly those top islands are spending their hard earned cash on!
What an adventure it's been, so many bugs, so many exploits, such amazing feedback! We appreciate everyone's feedback and the effort the community as a whole has put in, however, as I'm sure many of you knew, behind the scenes we Admins have been keeping a tally on bug reports wanting to make sure to extend a special thank you to those who:
Followed procedure and made Bug Reports using Support Tickets
Gave concise feedback and detailed information
Went above and beyond to make sure to try to test EVERYTHING possible
Reported bugs and exploits in a timely manner
And I'm thrilled to announce the final tally is in:
Beta has officially come to an end and I just wanted to take time to give a huge shoutout to all of the Beta Testers and the Staff who made it possible. Beta was a huge success and we appreciate all the hard work and feedback you guys gave!
We've put a recap video together showing off just some of our favorite features and islands!
Special thanks to @Majorblake for his work on the video!
Shoutout to the developers, especially @iFamasssxD for putting in so many hours! I cannot wait to see everyone at the full release on Friday at 2 PM CST.

CosmicSky's Closed Beta is almost upon us, and we have the final pre-beta community update to share with you all! First of all, a reminder of when Closed Beta is launching tomorrow:
Closed Beta Launch Date/Time: January 18th, 2019 at 2pm CST
Closed Beta Testers, keep your eyes open for a sticky post being made in the new hidden "Closed Beta Tester" forum section later today/early tomorrow with final instructions.
Next, we will be holding some last-minute giveaways here on the forums and on our official @CosmicSkyblock twitter account. So if you haven't managed to win access yet, or perhaps you have some friends that want to join your island tomorrow, be sure to keep your eyes open!
It's been a while since our last community update! We've been busy busy BUSY finalizing gameplay mechanics and preparing for our highly anticipated Closed Beta phase! Some of you may have noticed some innocuous tweets from @Woofless yesterday as the Closed Alpha is fully underway!
We are also happy to announce that CosmicSky is planning to support the following client versions:
1.7 - 1.13.X
That's right! You will be able to play CosmicSky on the official Cosmic Client! HOWEVER, it ishighly recommended that you play on version 1.12 or above in order to get the full experience. Players on lower versions will not be able to interact with or use new blocks, items, weapons, shields, etc! We have ensured that combat is the same irregardless of what client version you are playing on -- it will all feel like the 1.8 combat you know and love!
