    SkyBlock Delta
    Greetings Everyone,

    When we launched SkyBlock Infinity almost a year ago, we expected for it to stay relatively small and stable. Shockingly, SB Infinity took off, with around half the network traffic going to SkyBlock every single day. One problem with this, however, was that the two servers weren't able to handle that many players at the time, hence the lag issues (Though we've tracked most of them down, and a few more updates are pending to fix the rest). This summer, we plan to go all-out on advertisements for MineSuperior. As you may have noticed recently, the average playerbase has grown tremendously over the past few weeks, and we still expect it to grow. With this comes a need for sufficient space for players, hence the upcoming release of SkyBlock Delta.

    Now, you may be wondering, "What exactly is SkyBlock Delta?" To answer your question, it's essentially both SkyBlock Alpha and Omega, but will be featuring new optimizations (To provide a smoother gameplay), as well as our new Pantheon 2.0 system, which will be introduced bit-by-bit. I know beforehand, with the original post, I told that there would be Bosses added soon, and this is the server that it will debut on, though we need to get the final kinks on our end out of the way first. Along with providing the additional 125 slots needed to satisfy the recent player growth, we will also be releasing with a beta version of Minions 2.0, something that a lot of you SkyBlock players have been anticipating for a while (@Mnealia I'm looking at you here). @mpolder and I have been working tirelessly to plan out and develop each new feature for the Pantheon 2.0 system, and we can't wait to show you all what we have in store. As for Alpha and Omega, we have plans to update the Minions plugin to v2.0, but we cannot include the other plugins, as they're dependent on the entire Pantheon 2.0 system, which would have needed to be included from the start to work.

    SkyBlock Delta will be releasing this Friday at 5:00 PM EST, so be sure to be there to get a head start compared to all your friends.

    For anyone interested in viewing the Minions 2.0 Changes, here you go:

    New Upgrade System:
    Auto-Feeding: Minions feed themselves from food in their inventory.
    Auto-EXP: Allows minions to automagically collect Experience.
    Auto-Smelting: Auto smelts any items collected by the minion. (Toggleable)
    Auto-Sell: Auto sells any items collected by the minion. (Toggleable)
    Speed: Speed at which a minion can use their abilities.
    Food Usage: Decrease the amount of food used per ability use.
    Fortune: Increase the amount of drops received.
    Inventory Space: Increase the amount of inventory rows available.
    Range: Increase the range of the ability.
    Naming: Rename minions to whichever name you want.

    General Changes:
    - Removed the general stats screen, as all information is visible in the upgrade screen now.
    - Removed puns. May be introducted in a later date if requested. ;)
    - Removed the ability for minions to dab on them haters. (Not even kidding, they literally could dab).
    - Minion speed decreases 50% once food reaches 0. (Instead of a flat rate)
    - Minions now have a visual hunger bar above their head.
    - Implemented a Sell-All button on the UI to sell all items in the inventory at once.
    NOTE: Ignores unsellable items and food (for auto feeding).
    - Any minions will now be active whenever there is a user within render distance.
    NOTE: Does not have to be an island member.

    Already clarified it in the Discord, but the Pantheon system is the set of plugins that @mpolder and I designed and developed ourselves. Version 2.0 brings new features, more optimizations, and a complete overhaul of our backend infrastructure to the server, and allows us to integrate more and more plugins using an API we developed.

    I feel like each skyblock server should be themed, like medieval themed (the donor ranks, spawn etc) as it's more interesting than the current names. A feature that I would like to see changed is the scoreboard to the right. Right now the scoreboard has too much unnecessary information and I think it would look nicer if it looked like the following: your rank, money, players online and votes for drop party. Also chat is very cluttered as it is currently, I think the island level next to your name should be taken out. Lastly, I think as a donor perk each rank gets a queue priority and the higher the rank, the faster you get in. The queue priority doesn't kick players out of the server if it's full. Basically, if the server is full and a handful of people are trying to join it, the person with the highest rank will be put first.

    Am I the only one that thinks KitPvP factions and prison are completely ignored? Despite constant issues (yes I know the staff are busy alot of the time).

    @bleach OMG YES! Kit and Prison needs to be eye pealing. They keep working on skyblock when there already is two servers and work on prison which needs a reset and kit something more special since kit and prison is so bland.
