Players: 1+


Everybody gets sick and tired of vanilla Minecraft eventually. What is there to do after you’ve beaten the ender dragon a thousand times? Well, Skygrid is certainly an option! Skygrid is a gametype that spawns you on a single block, with random blocks spawning individually every four blocks. Surprisingly, there’s actually a lot to this gametype, and Apex Hosting offers everything it comes with available in just a few clicks! Whether all you want to do is jump from block to block, find chests and loot, or just load the game and tab out of Minecraft to do something else, Apex Minecraft Hosting has got you covered! Simply follow this guide and you’ll be up and running with a Skygrid Minecraft server!

Getting Started

  1. Head over to your Apex server panel, and make sure to stop your server.
  2. Reset all of your server files. In your panel, click on Reset Server Files in the bottom left of the server column. It’ll ask you to confirm a few times, so just confirm.
  3. In the JAR File list select “Skygrid 1.16.3 (Premade)”.
  4. On the popup, select Change version.
  5. Select “Use Included World”.
  6. Restart the server when it asks, and you’ll be able to connect with version 1.16.3!

Here at Apex Hosting, the installation of the SkyGrid game type is as easy as selecting the game type from the drop-down bar on your Multicraft Control panel! Once you’ve selected it simply restart your server and you’ll be good to go and ready to play Skyblock

When you first join the server you will spawn at the main spawn witch has a shop and some info on the game mode. You can setup treasure/vote creates here if you like. you can return here at any time using /spawn.

The admin challenge panel can be accessed by using /acid challenges or /bsbadmin challenges. There are 5 Challenge levels with 10 challenges in each . You can add or remove challenges in the admin menu. Challenges can give any reward (Items, Money, Permissions)

Starting Zone: Players will be taken somewhere random on the grid when they use /sg they can return here at any time with /sg you can go in all 3 worlds (Overword, Nether & End)

Shop: There is a shop set up in the skyGrid world for players to use to help them get extra resources not found out in the wild. You can edit the items and prices by simply editing the sign.
