Hey everyone!

For the last few months, we've been working on creating a second game to add to Fru Land, and that is Skyblock! Fru will be playing and recording on Skyblock, so make sure you're on to have a chance to be featured in his videos!

ā° Release

We're aiming to launch Skyblock next Saturday at 3:00 PM EST, which you can convert to your timezone by clicking this link.

In Discord, we'll be alerting players close to release, and will let you know if there are any updates or news regarding the launch, so make sure you're in Discord!

šŸļø What is Skyblock?

For those who don't know what Skyblock is, it's a game where users will start on an island in the void, and attempt to grow it outwards, and earn access to new materials.

On Fru Land, we've added a bunch of other content to make sure that gameplay is as fun and exciting as possible. You'll notice a lot of the features from Survival are available on Skyblock, as well as a bunch of new content.

Starter Templates
When you start your island, you'll be able to select between two types: Survival Island and Void/Classic Island. It doesn't matter which you choose, but one is in the void and the other is in the water.

The Survival Island template for starting your island!

Robots
Introducing Robots! Robots will be able to complete various automated tasks on your island, such as mining blocks, killing mobs, and farming crops. You can get Robots through Vote Crates, completing objectives, and leveling up your island.

Normal Robot with Farming mode activated

Robots can be upgraded using in-game money, which speeds up the speed of the Robot, and will increase its efficiency. Alternatively, you can use a Golden Module on the Robot to change its colour to a shiny gold, increase the speeds, have better efficiency, and automatically sell inventory contents!

You must replace the batteries of your Robots once they are depleted. You can get batteries from the same places as Robots.

Island Levels
There are six different categories of Island Level: Farming, Mining, Butchery, Forestry, Fishing and Alchemy.

You will be able to upgrade your Island Level simply by playing, with things like mining, brewing potions, fishing, breaking blocks, harvesting/planting crops, and more counting towards your Island Level.

As you increase your Island Level, you'll earn access to place and sell new blocks, get better blocks in your Cobble Gen, and unlock new crops and ores. You'll also receive rewards and prizes in your Island Rewards menu.

Custom Crops and Custom Ores
As mentioned above, you can unlock access to new Custom Ores and Custom Crops through leveling up your island.

The crops you can unlock are as follows:

  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Chilli
  • Corn
  • Raspberries
  • Pineapple
Example of a Tomato plant and item

You can plant these crops on your island, and grow/sell them like an ordinary crop!

Additionally, we've made it so that ores can automatically spawn in your island's Cobblestone Generator! As you level up your island, more ores will start to spawn in the generator, and you can mine and sell these for money!

The custom ores you can unlock are as follows:

  • Bronze
  • Tin
  • Platinum
  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
In order: Bronze, Tin, Platinum, Rubuy and Sapphire. Contains mineral block, ore block, and the ingot/gem

Dungeons
Dungeons will be activated when donation trains are reached, and all players will be able to participate in them for a chance to win rare and exclusive rewards!

You'll be able to battle between either the Strawberry Boss or the Pineapple Boss, with both bosses giving rare rewards to all players who deal damage to it. There are a variety of other mobs and challenges in the Dungeons, so be careful!

Sell Chests and Sell Wands
Sell Chests will automatically sell all items that flow into it, meaning that you can create automatic farms that require very little manual input. You can obtain Sell Chests through crates, our store, and from island level rewards.

Sell Wands are similar, and are an item that you can click on a chest with to automatically sell its contents. You can obtain these from crates, island level rewards, and by completing objectives.

Custom Enchantments
There are a variety of Custom Enchantments that you can unlock by enchanting books. To put these on your items, you can visit the Blacksmith in spawn.

The Blacksmith NPC

There is a chance for your enchantment to fail, which can be seen in the lore of the enchantment book. If the enchantment fails, the book will disappear, and you will lose the experience required to enchant the item.

Other Features
There's a list of other content the server will have, most of which is similar to Survival, but with a few tweaks to make it fit the gameplay.

  • Cosmetics
  • Auction House
  • Economy (This is similar to Survival, but is modified to ensure things are fair, such as bamboo being heavily nerfed)
  • Crates
  • Objectives/Quests
  • Spawn Parkour
  • Chest Shops
  • PVP Arena (There are two sides, one has Keep Inventory and the other does not)

šŸ›’ Ranks

There will be new ranks on Skyblock, with the names of these being as follows:

  • Bee šŸ
  • Turtle šŸ¢
  • Llama šŸ¦™
  • Panda šŸ¼
  • Enderman šŸ”®

If you have ranks on Survival, they will not transfer to Skyblock, but don't worry, because some of these features (and some more awesome new content) will be coming to Survival in the near future.

šŸ  Spawn

Skyblock has an all-new Spawn! This is where you'll first be when you login, and where various important aspects of the server (such as crates, the arena, the blacksmith, and the robot vendor) will be located!

šŸŽ® How do I play Skyblock?

When you join Fru Land, you'll be prompted with the below menu. On this, you can click between Skyblock or Survival.

This menu will be live on Saturday when Skyblock is online!
