SkyBlock: Island Levels

RightyBird here, and today I am going to address the number one question we hear on Skyblock on a daily basis.  You all want to know – just how to make your island level get into those top levels you are seeing in /island top.  Well you too can now be a top builder with this knowledge!

Here is the deal – some blocks are worthless on your island.  Some are better.   Some are fantastic!

Island Level:  How is it calculated?:
Level = total number of all blocks in island boundary / 100.
One island level = 100 points.

Cobblestone – it only takes you so far:
First off – Cobblestone has a ‘cap’ on it, meaning any additional blocks after you have placed 10000 of those bad boys becomes pointless.  But no fret!  You can turn that cobblestone frown upside-down by smelting it into ‘stone’ (of any type).  Those you can keep placing with no penalty!  There is one other block that falls into this cap – Netherrack.  Yup – its capped even lower at just 1000.  So smelt those as well and make some Nether Brick instead!

Deaths matter!
Yup – Deaths count and have a penalty on your island.  They cost you 100 block values per death.  The good news is we cap it at 10 deaths.  So – after 10 deaths you dont have to stress as much – and keep dying – just like you have been doing. 😀

Here is an important note of Island Deaths:
Hey team leader!  Your job on the island?  Don’t Die!  It’s you!  Yup – we only count YOUR deaths.  The others on the island don’t matter.  With great power comes great responsibility.  Or some other appropriate Marvel Comics quote here. 🙂

Big Ticket blocks – the Quick-list:

All Stone = 1 (Cobblestone is capped – as noted above)
most ores are worth something – the caveat is redstone ore which is worth 0!  Build some redstone contraptions and your good though.
Iron Block = 10
Gold Block = 150
Diamond Block = 300
Beacon = 100 – Really I thought it would be more.  Nope.
