YouTubers
Here we go! We teased this in the reset announcement but we can officially give you the details!

Please join me in welcoming:
Who will be joining our very own Woofless and TBNRFrags!

These guys aren't strangers to Minecraft by any means, and they're absolutely stoked be able to join you all to start their own CosmicSky journey!

The YouTubers will be going head to head with each other, and YOU!! Who will reign supreme?

Which YouTuber will dominate? Check /yt top to see how they are stacking up!




NEW /is list
We've completely revamped /is list, meaning it has more functionality and use!
Hosting public grinders? Got a crazy Casino? As long as you have 1 player physically located on your island your /is warp will now show in /is warp list!
  • /is list is now directly linked to your /is warp
  • Islands are listed in order of highest /is rating first




Pre-defined Island Tags
Additionally, you will be able to add pre-defined Island Tags to your /is warp listing!

Select which features you want to advertise:
  • Farming
  • Mining
  • Slaying
  • Casino
  • Roleplaying
  • PvP
You will be able to take these pre-defined category tags and use them as filters in the /is warp list!

Simply decide on which category you'd like to see - say, Casinos!
  • The /is warps menu will filter all the results by those that have the Casino tag
  • You'll be provided with a list of every island that has given themselves the Casino tag.
  • This allows you to better decide which island you'd like to visit!
Setting the filters
Type /is tags. A GUI will appear and you will be able to choose which category to assign to your /is warp.
  • You can have multiple categories assigned to your island
  • To change the categories shown, simply repeat the above steps!

Island Rating
Come across a fantastic island or think a Casino is rigged? Let everyone know with Island Ratings



Island ratings are a new and fun way to show people how much they've enjoyed (or not!) your island! Just visit someone's island and run /is rate and choose a rating between 1 and 10!
Some things to note about island rating:
  • You must be a minimum of /is level 2 to rate islands
  • You need to be stood on the island to /is rate it
  • You can rate an island between 1 and 10
  • The island rating shows on /is list
  • You are able to change your /is rate score once every 24hours
  • The islands will appear in order of highest rating first on the /is list



Player Portals
Whoooosh, an exciting new way to bring players to your island- this is a physical /is warp!



Player Portal Basics
  • To summon a player portal, you need to have an /is warp set
    • To do this, type /is setwarp where you'd like players to spawn in!
  • You are able to summon Player Portals on islands UNLESS
    • A permission block is placed to block
      • Specific people added to the permission block
      • Everyone, except Island members if the Public Region pane is selected
  • Any portal you place will automatically connect players to your /is warp
  • There will be a hologram above the portal which displays
    • The warp location: e.g LDram's /is warp
    • The current /is rating
    • A custom description that you can set when you summon the portal
      • /is portal <description>
  • You can use /toggle to prevent yourself from being teleported by Player Portals
    • Just toggle the "Toggle Player Portal Travel" pane off

Portal Cooldowns
  • Placed portals will remain active for 60 seconds
  • You can only place 1 portal every 120 seconds
Player Portal Placement Locations
  • At /spawn, excluding the immediate spawn-in location
  • On other players islands
  • On your own island


Island Upgrades
So you've got your Island, but you want more out of it? Island upgrades are here to give you that extra clout compared to others!

Some important things to remember

  • Only Owners and Co-leaders of islands are able to purchase /is upgrades
  • There is no way to remove /is upgrades once they are purchased

Farming Quotas
We've taken a good hard look at the way that /is farming has progressed throughout Map #1, and some serious changes have been made.



Firstly, we've reorganised the order of the crops in /is farming has been changed to correctly represent the ease at which crops are able to be farmed.
/is farming level 1 = Wheat
/is farming level 2 = Potato
/is farming level 3 = Carrot
/is farming level 4 = Sugar Cane
/is farming level 5 = Beet Root
/is farming level 6 = Nether Wart
/is farming level 7 = Melon
/is farming level 8 = Pumpkin
/is farming level 9 = Chorus Fruit
The amount of crops needed to unlock the next tier has also been adjusted.
  • Wheat
  • Potato
    • 100 Wheat Grown
  • Carrot
    • 2500 Potatoes Grown
    • Carrot Recipe
  • Sugar Cane
    • 15,000 Carrots Grown
    • Sugar Cane Recipe
  • Beet Root
    • 75,000 Sugar Cane Grown
    • Beet Root recipe
  • Nether Warts
    • 100,000 Beet Root Grown
    • Nether Wart Recipe
  • Melons
    • 250,000 Nether Wart Grown
    • Melon Recipe
  • Pumpkins
    • 5,000,000 Melons Grown
    • Pumpkin Recipe
  • Chorus Fruit
    • 7,500,000 Pumpkins Grown
    • Chorus Fruit Recipe

In addition, we also now have /is farming quotas.

Essentially these are goals that you want to be aiming towards to get the most efficiency out of your /is farming!
  • Quotas are per day
  • Once you've reached your quota for the day, you'll be notified in chat to say you've achieved your goal!
  • For every day you hit your farming quota for each crop, you'll increase the goal to aim for the next day by 5%
    • So if you have a quota of 500 wheat per day, and reach that, the next day your goal is to farm 525 wheat
  • If you reach your goal for all of your unlocked crops, you'll increase the goal for the next day by 10%!
  • Wheat
    • 250
  • Potato
    • 5000
  • Carrot
    • 10,000
  • Sugar Cane
    • 15,000
  • Beet Root
    • 20,000
  • Nether Warts
    • 50,000
  • Melons
    • 250,000
  • Pumpkins
    • 500,000
  • Chorus Fruit
    • 1000

Farming Limit Increasers
You are able to have a chance to increase the daily quota temporarily by killing Adventure mobs of the appropriate tier for each crop.


  • The Adventure mobs have a chance to drop a Farming Limit Increaser
  • Right-click this token to choose which crop you'd like to redeem it on
  • Each token you apply will increase your daily quota of the chosen crop quota of that tier by X% (dependent on the value of the increaser)
    • For example:
      • So if you are at 15,000/15,000 sugar cane grown, head into the Lost Wasteland Adventure
      • Kill mobs in that Adventure until the Farming Limit Increaser II drops as loot
      • Go back to the Island you want to redeem it on
  • You must redeem the token on the island that you would like it to take effect
  • The tokens are able to be dropped when you die - so be careful in the adventures!
  • The tokens are able to be traded and sold on the /ah
  • There is a max redemption of up to an additional 100% per day
Abandoned Ruins
  • Wheat
  • Potato
  • Carrot
Lost Wasteland
  • Sugar Cane
  • Beet Root
  • Nether Warts
Demonic Realm
  • Melons
  • Pumpkins
  • Chorus Fruit

Inventory Pets
Ever wanted to have bonuses AND a cute little friend to accompany you? Inventory Pets are cute little companions that you carry about with you. Not only do they walk your journey with you, but they also provide you with some cool buffs/effects that you can use.

This week we're introducing our first Inventory Pet - the Loot Llama!



The Loot Llama
When you right-click this little dude in your hand, he'll give you a random piece of Adventure loot appropriate to his level.
  • The Loot Llama has a 24-hour cooldown
  • Each time you use the pet to redeem your daily loot, your pet will gain 100 XP
  • When it has gained enough XP, it will level up
  • The Loot Llama has 3 total levels
    • Each level of the Loot Llama represents each tier of Adventure
      • If your pet is level 1, you'll receive loot relative to the Abandoned Ruins
      • If your pet is level 2, you'll receive loot relative to the Lost Wastelands
      • If your pet is level 3, you'll receive loot relative to the Demonic Realm




Heroic Adventures
The next level in Adventures!

We have Adventures, but we're going to be introducing the next level- Heroic Adventures! These will be harder, but the rewards reflect this as the loot is a LOT better!

There is some important information to know about Heroic Adventures:
  • Elites will spawn more readily in Heroic Adventures
  • You will not be able to join non-heroic Adventures once you've unlocked the Heroic version
More details will be available in due course!


NEW /is top
Island Top has had a full revamp to reward you for all your hard work and effort!

You'll now see that /is top is now sorted a little differently, and in order of priority of:
  • Island Level
  • 100% Spawner value, plus Island Profit in the last 24 hours
    • Island profit is calculated by the value of all the farming and mobs drops that spawned on the island in the last 24 hours.
    • The more you hit your goals, the higher your Island Profit will be!



NEW Economy Changes
After a lot of discussions and deliberating, scouring of the suggestion forums and reading your messages in in-game chat, we've had a pretty hefty overhaul of all things economy based.

Adventure Loot Tweaks
  • Each day the map progresses, the amount of money and EXP that can be found in the Adventure chests increases accordingly.
    • The value of the money notes and EXP bottles that are found in all of the three non-heroic Adventures have been buffed significantly.

/is skill Island Level requirements
To assist in the balance of the map progress overall, we have implemented /is level goals for the next levels of /is skills - fishing, mining and slayer.

The amount of money you now make from selling and the cost of observers will prove almost impossible or atleast way more costly to build any type of auto farms on sky...

GG can't wait, 2 hours 4 minutes to go!

For science, when are auto mining bots available to place on your island? I couldn't see them in the spoiler information.

I look forward to seeing all of you guys on the map #2 release in 2 hours and 4 minutes ^-^
