Many of you have asked for it, and its finally here. Full 1.12 support has come to SkyRealms! Read on to find out more about what this means and what new features it brings.

New Blocks
1.11 and 1.12 brought a lot of great new blocks to Minecraft, and now you can use all of them in SkyRealms! From Shulker boxes (temporarily disabled due to some crash issues, will be fixed soon!), to observers, to the brand new types of clay! 1.12 is truly a builders dream update with all the amazing new blocks and colors.

New Mobs
While you won't be able to acquire all these mobs quite yet, you will soon be able to have tons of new mobs to befriend and fight! Parrots, polar bears, shulkers, and new villager types are coming to a SkyRealms near you very soon!

Supported Versions
While we now fully support 1.12, you can STILL connect using 1.10 or 1.11, though some features may not work fully. For example, if you connect in 1.10, blocks from 1.11 and 1.12 will show as a 1.10 block instead. You'll still be able to fully play SkyRealms, but for the best experience we recommend using 1.12.

Full Changelog
- Full 1.11 and 1.12 content support
- Added various 1.11 and 1.12 blocks to the shop
- Temporarily disabled Shulker boxes
- Made renaming keys bannable, like spawners
- Nerfed snowstorm enchant
- Fixed various /realm claim issues​

A few weeks ago we added the Nether, but what is the Nether without the Wither for you to take on?

The Wither is now here for you to fight! Grab 4 soulsand and 3 wither skulls and head to the Nether with your friends and your good gear and prepare for a challenge. The SkyRealms Wither is stronger, and harder to kill than usual and it will require teamwork to take down.

When you manage to kill the Wither there will be a chance for it to drop a nether star, an item you can sell or craft into a beacon!

Note: Withers can only be spawned below Y 105. This is to keep the players joining above safe utill they decide to go into the depths of the underground.

The Wither can only be built and fought in the Nether, so be prepared to deal with other angry mobs such as pigmen who will do everything they can to prevent you from being victorious.

On top of adding the Wither, we've increased the difficulty overall. Zombie pigmen are now automatically aggressive. So while there isn't PvP in the Nether, you should still expect a challenge!

Hey everyone, we've got a great update for you all today, all about fighting epic bosses for epic loot! Read on for more information.

Are normal mobs and their loot just not cutting it for you? Are you looking for a bigger challenge to take on with friends in exchange for a chance at greater loot?

To activate a boss fight you need a boss spawn egg, which can be purchased from our store HERE. Once you have a boss egg, head to the arena at spawn (Found straight ahead from the spawn point, beyond the warzone drop), gather your friends with the best armor and weapons you've got and spawn the boss!

[​IMG]

Be warned those, boss fights are hard, and will require your best gear, and your best friends in order to take it down. At the moment we have one boss, the Iron Golem King, and he will not die easily!

If you manage to take him out, you will be rewarded with lots of loot, including pieces of the exclusive Golem armor and weapons. The summoner of the boss is always guaranteed loot, and the 5 players who do the most damage to the boss during the fight will also receive loot.

Keep an eye out for more future bosses for you to fight and good luck to everyone taking on the Golem King!

Full Changelog
- Added boss fights
- Added Golem King Boss Egg to store
- Added boss fight arena to spawns
- Disabled ender pearls for non realm members
- Fixed various typos
- Disabled TnT in Nether
- Fixed Crate Master not always working
- /fly now prevented if combat tagged​

Daily Tournaments
Daily Tournaments offer a new way to challenge yourself daily and earn legendary rewards! Just like daily challenges, there will be three new tournaments each day. Each tournament will task you with something different, from looting chests, to killing mobs, to mining certain blocks.

[​IMG]

Tournaments can be accessed from the /challenge menu by clicking on the iron sword. At the end of each day, the top 3 players in each tournament will receive rewards! Good luck to everyone participating in each tournament!

First Place - 2 Legendary Keys
Second Place - 1 Legendary Key
Third Place - 5 Epic Keys

Full Changelog
- Added Daily Tournaments
- Various fixes/improvements for the Nether
- /fly disabled when combat tagged
- Fixed server restarts not always happening at correct times
- Fixed being unable to accept multiple teleport invites/requests

Hey everyone! We've got some major updates and balance changes for SkyRealms for you all today. Read on to learn more about the Nether, enchant balances, legendary keys and more!

The Nether
The nether is a classic Minecraft realm, and now you can visit it in SkyRealms! Simply construct a nether portal and hop in, just as you'd expect. This will take you to a custom world where you'll be able to adventure, mine, kill mobs and more!

Nether2.png

When you spawn into the Nether, you'll spawn high up with an elytra, allowing you to fly down to a spot of your choice in the world. Once you land the elytra will be removed and any armor you had on restored. Inventories do transfer, so anything you obtain in the Nether can be brought back to your realm!

PvP is disabled (for now, let us know if you think this should change!), so your only fear will be the pigmen, blazes and other monsters that inhabit the world. If you're fast you'll even be able to mine a blaze spawner before other players get to them! The nether will reset periodically, so don't get too attached to the world.

Enchant Balances
Based on extensive feedback from all of you, we've balanced and fixed a huge number of enchants to make PvP more fun, fair and balanced! You can find a full list of the changes below.

Lighting - increased damage
Weakness - increased duration and level of weakness
Pickpocket - lowered chance and amount of stolen money
Wolfpack - increased chance
Disarmour - lowered chance
Disarm - lowered chance
Bleed - slightly lowered chance, lowered damage
Heavy Hand - decreased damage multiplier
Life Steal - lowered health steal amounts
Snare - slightly lowered duration
Ignite - fixed, no longer 100% chance
Larger Fireball - lowered damage
Blast Off - lowered velocity
Valor - lowered duration
Enlightened - lowered duration, slightly lowered healing amount
Saturation...

Hey everyone,

We've got some fun updates for you this week. Read on to find out more info on sponsored realms and name tags!

Sponsored Realms
Top realms is a great way for your realm to get more attention and more visitors (and more visitors means more sales in your shops!), but it can sometimes be hard to get those top slots for visibility. Fear not, using in game money you can now purchase a sponsored realm slot for a week and get all the extra attention you've always wanted!
[​IMG]

The top row of 9 realms are the sponsored slots. If a slot is available it will show as an emerald. Simply click an emerald to purchase that slot for a week. First come, first serve!

Name Tags
Name tags are here and let you get that extra flair to show off to your friends! There are currently 12 name tags for you to unlock, and they can be obtained in three different ways.

Store - Baller, <3, Champion, Trustworthy (get them HERE!)

Epic Keys - Annoying, Architect, Brewmaster

Legendary Keys (coming soon!) - Tough, Headhunter, Fancy, Firey, Chilly

To access the list of name tags, simply type /nametag.
[​IMG]

When you have a name tag selected it will show next to your name above your head (and in tablist!), as shown here by the wonderful PatP.

In order to continue to give you ways to customize your realm, we've added two new realm themes (Nether and Wild West) to the store. Give your realm some extra flair by buying one HERE!

New Chest Shops
We've created a better chest shop system, which means many of the issues with the previous system are fixed. You will no longer have to reset your shops after every server restart!

To create a chest shop, place a sign on a chest with the following info
Code:
[Shop]
1 (The amount of the item you want to buy/sell)
1 (The price)
sell/buy
Then click the shop with the item you wish to buy/sell through it. You're now good to go!

User Preferences
You can now control four different settings via the /pref command. It will open a GUI like the one shown below and allow you to toggle payments, teleport requests, messages and hiding players at spawn.

Players will automatically be visible if you leave spawn and enter the warzone.
