Up for the challenge to survive on a small skyblock island alone or with friends? In this article, we reveal the server IP address for the home of skyblock!
What is Minecraft Skyblock?
In Minecraft skyblock, you start on a tiny island in the sky with limited resources, only given a few necessity items. The aim is to survive and expand your island into your own aspirations.
How to join a Minecraft Skyblock server?
There are many skyblock servers out there to choose from. We have selected this specific server because they were the founders of skyblock and therefore, they predominantly focus on this game mode. They provide skywars too but skyblock is their main game.
Follow what over 4 million players have done since 2012 and watch the short YouTube video below to find out the server IP address to this skyblock server:
The server is compatible on version 1.19 after Minecraft just made strides into 1.19 only a couple weeks ago.
Many more benefits come with this server which include custom island settings, visiting other islands, inviting friends and more.
Custom island settings allow you to modify certain aspects of your island such as the type of biome and weather
How to start skyblock?
When you join the skyblock server, type /newisland to get started. This command may differentiate for other servers than the one we showcased in the video. If at any point you wish to restart, type /newisland replace and then /newisland yes. This will delete all your current island progress, so be sure you want to restart!
Best Minecraft Skyblock Tips
On the skyblock server we recommended, you get given about an 80 dirt block island which is pretty small as that results to not even a 6×6 platform. You are also given a tree and a chest. Within the chest are a few necessity items. You must not neglect any of the items given as they all become important.
Making a wooden pickaxe. Don’t mine the whole tree just yet, just enough to craft yourself a wooden pickaxe. You then want to make a cobblestone generator. The island is very small at first so we need to expand before we make any farms.
How to make a cobblestone generator in Minecraft
In a straight line, mine 1 dirt block, leave 1 block, mine 2 blocks deep then mine 1 block. Remember to collect your dirt blocks as you have limited resources!
Then place the bucket of lava inside the 1 block hole. And the ice on the other side on top of the 1 block you mined, not the two. Then break the ice so it flows down. Break another dirt block next to the only dirt block left so you have a place to stand. Mine the replacing dirt block and it will generate a cobblestone block. Mine this with your pickaxe and there you practically have unlimited cobblestone!
Using your cobblestone, expand the island around the tree. Mine the tree then collect the saplings. It is important you expand the island enough so the saplings do not drop off. Replant the saplings and repeat the process each time the tree fully grows.
The next step is to create an infinite water pool. Mine a 2×2 square 1 block deep. Ensure there is a floor supporting underneath. Just for temporary, pick up the water from the cobblestone generator as you will need 2 sources of water. Place the remaining ice block in one corner of the 2×2 square and then the bucket of water in the opposite corner. Break the ice and that will create you your infinite water source. You can then replace the water for the cobblestone generator.
We now need to prioritize food! You are given 1 melon and a melon seed so let’s make a melon farm.
Almost 2 years ago, I created a tutorial on how to make a melon farm in Minecraft. The same concept applies. Just decrease the size as obviously you don’t have as much room in skyblock.
Creating a mob farm. Mobs can be an important aspect to gain key items such as ores, enchants, armor etc from what they can drop. Some servers do not allow mobs to spawn and instead offer a /warp to an area to grind mob drops. A tutorial on how to make a mob farm in Minecraft is coming soon on our website so stay tuned for that!
These types of farms require a lot of space so you best get mining that infinite cobblestone generator!
Once you have some fundamentals to your islands, you are free to expand, design and build whatever you wish!
Frequently Asked Skyblock Questions
These are some common questions that skyblock players are searching.
How to play Skyblock with a friend
On the server IP we showcased above, the island leader should type /coop invite [name]
How to join a Modded Skyblock server
Modded skyblock servers or OP skyblock servers can defeat the purpose of skyblock. That is my opinion as it becomes so much easier to survive and expand your island.
But if you are interested in modded skyblock servers, here is a Minecraft modded skyblock server IP: sm.opblocks.com
How to join a 1 Block Skyblock Server
A 1 block skyblock server is a lot different to the standard, traditional skyblock servers. In this type of skyblock mode, you start on 1 singular block. You can jump to other singular blocks that are located within jumping distance of each other. So you will need your parkour skills to come in handy!
