    Finally, SkyMetro is here! We’re really excited to open the server and see players enjoying the unique and highly custom features we’ve been working on for the past few months. To celebrate the release of the server the launch sale is now on, meaning there is 20% off all store purchases! You also receive a super rare launch badge upon making a purchase, don’t miss out!

    SkyMetro has two main currencies, the main one being the dollar. Dollars can be obtained by selling items, the best way to get started earning some dollars is to create a cobblestone generator and sell the ores/cobblestone you receive from it. The second currency is Cryptos, these are obtained in a physical form from computers if you set your computer's purpose to Generate Cryptos. In order to spend these Cryptos they must be converted into Crypto Shards, this can be done within the bank if you talk to the trader. The Crypto to Crypto Shard conversion rate can also be found in the bank. So you may be thinking, what can Crypto Shards be spent on? Currently your Crypto Shards can be used to further upgrade your computer, meaning you’ll receive more Cryptos, Blueprints and Ores.

    Computers are one of the many highly custom features SkyMetro offers, they can be obtained in the starter chest on your island and one can be placed per person. In a nutshell, computers can be used to obtain Cryptos, Blueprints and Ores. These are awarded upon your computer cracking patterns while you're on the server. These patterns are cracked by cores within your computer, you can have a total of 8 cores in your computer and each one can be upgraded to improve the Speed, Processes and Security. Upgrading the speed allows patterns to be cracked faster meaning you’ll receive more rewards. Improving the processes means multiple parts of the pattern will be cracked at the same time, once again meaning it’ll be cracked faster. Finally the security upgrade reduces the chance of trojans occurring, trojans cause the pattern to become corrupt and because of that a trojan item will be outputted. Trojans don’t stack in your computer's storage, so they can consume a large amount of your valuable storage space. Your computer also has storage bays, this is where your award goes once a pattern has been cracked. You start with one storage bay but more can be unlocked.Cores can be unloaded and loaded into your computer, meaning they can be exchanged between players. Highly upgraded cores can be obtained here.

    Robots are used to simplify common tasks and much more! Upon purchasing your robot you receive a Robot Flare, this can be placed on your island to spawn in the robot. You then right click the robot to access the Robot Manager, here you can set your robots mode. There are many robot modes such as Chunk Loading, Farming, Mining, Mob Grinding/Attack and Roaming. So your robots can be used to complete a variety of tasks, ranging from mining at your cobblestone generator to following you around the spawn. To improve each mode Robot Microchips can be used, they can be purchased here and once you have one right click your robot with it and it’ll proceed through the tiers. The basic robot is an Apollo Robot, but that can be upgraded to Triton, then to Atlas and the final tier is Spectre. Your robot can also be personalised, you can change your robot's name and unlock colours/styles for the name in crates or here on our store. Outfits are also available for robots, C-3PO, Stormtrooper, Iron Man and Bender are some of the many outfits available. These are obtained through crates.

    SkyMetro has a level system, you proceed through the levels by obtaining XP. This can be received by mining ores, killing players, fishing and much more! But the main way to obtain XP is by completing challenges. Players will start by having access to 16 Beginner challenges, once these are complete you’ll have access to another 150+ These are all of different difficulties ranging from easy to impossible, the higher difficulty challenges give you more XP upon completion. Badges are also obtained from challenges as well as here if you want rare YouTuber ones or letter badges, these can be pinned on your profile. You can view another player's profile by either clicking their name in the chat when they type a message, or by using the /profile <name> command. Not only can you showcase your badges you can also use profiles to view someones balance, see what level someone is or view the players warps.

    This is SkyMetro’s version of enchanting, the tinkerer can be found at the spawn so talk to him if you want to enchant an item or browse of wide range of custom enchants. Blueprints are effectively our version of an enchanted book, as mentioned previously Blueprints are obtained from computers. Each blueprint has an enchant assigned to it, a level and a quality. Blueprints of a low quality stand a chance of breaking when being applied to an item, however blueprints with the same enchant can be merged to improve the quality. Once a blueprint has been applied to an item it’ll be sent to the pending actions section, where it’ll take some time to be applied to the tool/armour. Donors have access to significantly reduced tinker time, consider purchasing a rank here to benefit from this.

    The PvP arena can be accessed with the /warp PvP command. If you're looking to make a more exciting entrance then take to the skies with your elytra, eye up your target and swoop down for a surprise attack. Although SkyMetro supports all versions, the PvP mechanics have been tweaked to be just like 1.8. PvP isn’t just about killing other players on SkyMetro, it’s also a great way of obtaining rare ores. Make your way to the bottom of a large green beacon and mine away at the ores at the bottom.

    We hope you enjoy the many features on offer at SkyMetro. We’ve covered the essentials in this post but there is also much more to discover and play around with in-game! Over the coming few days we’ll be focusing on our existing features and making sure everything works as intended. Then we’ll proceed with implementing new features, currently our main priority is improving PvP by making the terrain more enjoying and adding crate drops + much more! We’ll then commence work on some awesome new features like Apartments and the Marketplace. We also now have a Discord. This is an area where you can talk to your friends, make new ones and interact with the community. We expect you all to follow the rules on the Discord too so it remains a peaceful place for all ages.
    Join us at https://discord.gg/xDSZy8N! Hopefully you found this post useful and we look forward to seeing you on the server
