EDIT: I have created a survey about HC for people to take. If you really want to help us out, you would take it. It should only take you a couple minutes, and it will help us get an idea about what the community wants to see. You can find the survey under Mod App in the forum tab at the top of the page or by clicking here. Note: You must be logged in to take the survey.
Things have been a bit slow lately, but that is getting ready to change. Several things are in the works for not only the server, but for the community as a whole. Since I started working on HC, the main priority was to focus on the existing HC community. All of you are great. Even those of you who do not play Minecraft anymore have come back to be with everyone in the Discord server. It is good to know that the HC community will be strong regardless of how many still play.
This first phase of the plan, as you could call it, is coming to an end. Sometime in the near future we will be releasing an all-new HC Skyblock server. My goal is to create a server that plays differently than what we have released in the past. Meaning, I don't want this to be a rehash of Survival/Sandbox in the sky. I want to take the best aspects of the last Skyblock server and flesh them out into something enjoyable for everyone. This skyblock server will have more depth to it than any previous HC skyblock server. We will release more information about this when the time is right.
The release of Skyblock will mark the beginning of the second phase of the plan. We are still supporting the existing community, and nothing is changing in that regard, but now it is time for us to start trying to bring in some new players. We will be working on several new incentives to vote to really push it. Voting for us makes us more visible to new players.
Finally, a new donation service is in the works. More details about this will be announced in the future. The aim of this new service will be to provide HC players an oppertunity to help support the server's upkeep, even if they do not have the money to buy a big donor rank.
That is all I can share with you right now. There are some other things we are looking into, as well. Do stay tuned for announcements in the future, because some of this stuff we're looking into can really breathe new life into HC.
