Hello everyone,

The time has come, Season 3 of Cowboys VS. Indians is right around the corner. This realm will be our very first Skyblock Turbo season with a fast pace experience. We have focused on a different feel from our other Skyblock realms, with a economy that is a big grind. Each player will start with a Island Mine on release and can be upgraded by right-clicking the bedrock. You can find different sized mines in our Monthly Crates on the store, no new crates will be released mid-season every package will be on the store on SOTW.
In total, we will be having $800 in prizes. Each island and player will be required to set a PayPal using /is setpaypal <email> and /skill setpaypal <email>. This is used to automatically pay out the top islands and players each week.

Change Log
Every map we push to add new content bringing a different experience each and every time.

New Spawn
We have continued to build off the current spawn with several new changes including more interaction with NPCS and players, and a brand new warp.

Lost Island
We have been wanting to release this for awhile now! This season we are introducing The Skill World (The Lost Island). This is an entirely separate world you can warp to where you can, chop down trees, fish, mine through caves, farm crops, and explore new islands among this world.

This world will be mainly for levelling up your skills. In the world you receive double skill experience to make it worth your time to go! There will be an island surrounded by water and other small islands, where you can place down a boat and travel to other islands leaving it a never endless experience.

We plan on adding much more to this Skill World and expanding each and every season.

Inventory Pets
We have a variety of different pets and can be viewed in-game typing /pets. Most of the pets were useless last season and not worth levelling up, with a variety of new pets! Pets can be levelled up in many ways simple as right-clicking, mining blocks, and much more!

The new pets are as follows:
Miner Pet
  • Chance to gain pickaxe energy while mining and once your pet levels up to 200, your pickaxe becomes unbreakable
Cactus Pet
  • When activated your armour acts as thorns for a short period of time
Cowboy Pet
  • Lasso nearby enemies for a short period of time
Island Mine
As stated on the top of the forums post, every player starts with a island mine. Once placed on your island you are able to add island members to it (/im). View your island mines' inventory by right-clicking the bedrock of the mine. You can view your island mine upgrades, view your ore storage, and pickaxe upgrades.

Note: Larger islands mines can be found in monthly crates on SOTW. All monthly crates will be shown on the store on release, no other crates will be released mid-season.

Chestsell and Condense Signs
We have decided to continue on using these types of signs, but always open for ideas on other ways to sell mob drops.

A chestsell is a perk that when a sign placed on a chest and when you click it you can sell all items into shop instantly. To create a chestsell sign you type [chestsell] on a sign and it's created! We have also implemented many commands for the owner of the signs to add your island members. To view more information type /chestsell in-game on release.

A condense sign is basically as stated, a sign is placed on a chest when you click it the items inside will condense into blocks so for example if there are 9 iron ingots and you click the sign those ingots will turn into 1 iron block. To create a condense sign you type [condense] on a sign and it's created!

Skills Update
We really focused a lot of time on skills this map. We have made it so when you gain experience it'll show the amount of experience gained for that specific skills above your hotbar. We have also introduced /skills top system. When you type /skills top you can view the top players for all the skills or a specific skill. To view the top players of a specific skill type /skills top <skill> and to view the list the top players for all the skills combined, type /skill top all.

Upgradable Spawners
We have made only a couple of spawners upgradable, since mining is the main economy. The main focus of spawners is for grinding gems and experience. You can upgrade spawners for different drop types that sell for more.

We have made many balance changing revolving around our outpost and their multipliers. The multipliers are now balanced not giving too big of a advantage, but worth your time to capture. We have also made it so only one island can capture an outpost at a time to give other islands a fair chance of capping different outposts for island boosts.

The outposts boosts are listed below:
  • x2.0 Experience Multiplier
  • 10% off Enchanter Purchases
  • x0.2 Money Multiplier
  • Access to Outpost Shop
  • x2.0 Spawn Rate Multiplier
  • 10% off all Spawners Upgrades

Miscellaneous Changes
We are constantly working on fixing bugs and tweaking economy for each map, mentioned below are some of the changes we have made:

  • Useless pets have been removed
  • You can now warp to a town that is located on top of a hill at spawn where secret NPCS can be spotted
  • You can only capture one outpost at a time per island
  • Island homes resetting on reboot has been fixed
  • We have limited island size to 12 (you can add alts through /is alts command)
  • Rank reclaims have been improved and fixed so you receive what Buycraft states
  • Vote Party has been decreased to 150 votes needed
We can't wait for you all to try this new type of Skyblock with our new turbo styled map. We will be constantly updating this type of Skyblock each and every season introducing new features to enhance the game play.
