Villager Skyblock

It’s skyblock… but with a twist!

Trade with villagers (and the wandering trader) to unlock resources!

BUT… There’s only one villager, and you can’t let him out or start a farm; only replace him with another.


You have lots of emeralds… but what happens when they run out?
Buy enough resources to start a farm for a sustainable source of emeralds.
This map will really test your knowledge of renewable vs nonrenewable resources!

Skyblock is a game where your goal is to survive for as long as possible with extremely limited resources. In this version, you get a starting chest, a replaceable villager, a replaceable wandering trader and not much else. The rest is up to you! What will you be able to do?

Chest Contents:

  • Lava Bucket x1
  • Block of Iron x64
  • Obsidian x10
  • Block of Emerald x64
Annd… that’s it!

In the true spirit of skyblock, the map is small, but your goal (of course) is to expand and see how far you can get! Unfortunately, you cannot get to the end yet, but it might just be in a future update…


  • Gamemode survival or adventure (but I’m not sure why you would want to do adventure).
  • It’s okay to turn keep inventory on, but just know that it’s a harder challenge with it off.
    Mob Griefing on.
  • Command blocks must be enabled.

Stuck? Here’s some tips to get you started:

  • You can get a fish bucket from either a fisherman villager or the wandering trader to make a cobblestone generator.
  • You can get podzol (which can be placed down and rebroken into dirt) from the wandering trader.
  • You can get saplings (for wood) from the wandering trader.
  • You can get food from a farmer or a butcher villager.
  • There is a very rare chance that the wandering trader will sell bone meal. You can get up to 48 bone meal this way.
  • By using village and pillage mechanics, you might just be able to control what villager spawns to trade with 😉

Is the map too easy? Here are some ideas for challenges to make the map harder:

  • Limited Emeralds: Start off with only 1 stack of emeralds (throw the rest away)
  • Hardcore Mode: Set difficulty to hard. If you die, it’s game over.
  • No Keep Inventory: Set gamerule keepinventory to false. (Or, you can turn it off in the world settings)

Good luck!

    Why the animal dont spawning

  3. Ender_Playz says:

    I forgot how much I suck at Skyblock, so I used an anvil to rename the lava the “I give up” Lava. And that was the end of that.

  4. Conner says:

    How can i get grass and is it possible?

  5. T says:

    Is it possible to have animals to spawn without having grass ?

    • Animals can spawn without grass. Try making a large cobblestone platform that is at least 16×16 (the larger the better). Then, make sure you aren’t too close to the platform. Mobs will not spawn if there is not a large enough area for them to spawn in.

        I’ve made a pretty large platform so far and have tons of hostile mobs spawning, but not a single animal yet. Also, why are there 10 obsidian blocks if there’s no way to obtain flint? I don’t want to give up on this yet, but if no animals spawn and there’s no way to get to the nether, its not gonna be as fun.

  6. YourBoi says:

    Hello I usually download without the support. Then click the link for support, then wait a bit.
    Just because this map is really awesome.

    • Thanks so much for supporting! We appreciate it. We have a new map coming for you guys soon! 😉

      • Felicia Gjerde says:

        Can we even go in the nether? There is the 10 Obsidian in the chest but there is no flint. How do we even get flint? Really love this world. I just started it today. Wanted something different than just running around, building homes and exploring.

      • Ethan says:

        I love this map it’s so asome let me know if you make more please!

  7. Yuichiro10 says:

    Nice you can just give yourself 12 end portal frames if you want to go to the end.

    • Snipesgames32 says:

      I love this map i downloaded it today and already have a giant wheat and sugar cane farm. i downloaded with support too

    • Stay tuned, access to the end might be coming in a future update. It’s a bit tricky to implement because we don’t want to just put the end portal in plain sight on the island. We’ll see what we can do.
