Tips and Tricks: Skyblock

Postby Lord Cuddles » 24 Feb 2013, 23:44

Cuddly Trick 1
Use cobblestone half slabs. Half slabs are a great material to use as you can place down two of them for every cobblestone block you generate, saving you time, and pickaxe resources. In addition to this, placing half slabs should prevent monsters from spawning provided that the whole floor is made out of them. (I would, however, recommend that you keep the area lit, just in case ;) )

Cuddly Trick 2
Grass > Diamonds. You will not get any more dirt whilst playing, other than through rewards, so it is essential you save it for the farms. If you want to create an animal farm, you will need to create a grassed over area. Do not cover all the grass with cobblestone! if you do this, it will quickly convert into dirt, and you will not be able to continue.

Cuddly Trick 3
Create an infinite water supply. Your possibilities vastly improve when you have water. An island with no water is doomed.

More will come when it isnt 11:42 pm :P

Mobs do spawn on half slabs now. Although they will double the amount of blocks you can place mob do spawn

only if they are upside down, monsters cant spawn on the the normal half slabs, according to the wiki. also, according to the wiki, when creepsers explode on stone slabs, they deal damage only to the one it exploded on and none of the others.
(just tested in single player :3)

You cant get grass by completing challenges though, so you should still preserve what is there, keeping at least one block of grass so it spreads =]

The first one is pretty clever. The 2nd one I just have a counter: You only need grass for sheep farms. If you want it for cows, chickens, and pigs, that's optional.

Especially the slab one. I'm using that one all the time now!

Level up your Island by leting lava drop all the to the void, and then put cobble on either side , and then put H2O. PS.. H2O not good to put next to lava sorce :)

If that's how you level up your island, you could just as easily make a huge cobble pyramid by alternately tossing lava and water lol.

Great tips!

The one about the slabs was particularly useful. I had forgotten all about using them.
