This post serves as a resource for those applying for a staff position at Gridcraft. This post will provide advice on how to write a detailed application along with answering some frequently asked
This guide will teach you everything you need to know about Oneblock on Gridcraft!
What is Oneblock?
OneBlock is a Survival Minecraft map, where you are stranded in the void on top of a single block. Players are challenged to live and build using only the resources provided from the infinite block. You can mine the same block over and over, and it gives you basic materials that, overtime, become better and better! You go through certain phases, and the infinite block slowly upgrades to better blocks, chests and new mobs! The object of the map is to expand your block into a thriving island.
Once you are connected to the OneBlock server, you will load into the /spawn area. From there, you can head straight into the portal ahead of you to start your OneBlock journey. After loading into your island, you will notice you are standing on….one block! Well, actually two, there is bedrock under the block you load onto. From here you will mine that block, which increases the Broken counter on the scoreboard to the right, as well as increasing the progress bar at the bottom of your screen. The rest of your journey is up to you from here.
Using /is or /island while on your island will display the Island help page (seen below) that lists the commands.

Gridbits is our brand new credits system used to purchase/trade anything on our store and our server. This includes ranks, cosmetics, items, loot boxes, bundles and much more! Theres a daily shop of cosmetics and goods (which rotate) and the other categories are fixed and do not rotate.
For Oneblock, Gridbits will be used for purchasing on Oneblock cosmetic items, crates, air drops and tags, however as we continue to expand Gridbits system, more features for Gridbits such as global cosmetics, achievement system, boosters, and and loot boxes will come along the way!
Purchase Gridbits at store.gridcraft.net/category/gridbits
The Sparks Cave
Have what it takes to battle the ferocious mobs down in the daunting cavern?
The Sparks Cave has 5 levels that increase in difficulty as you venture deeper into the caves: Be weary traveler… once you enter The Sparks Cave, you CAN NOT LEAVE unless you make your way to the exit portal near the entrance (Fly is also DISABLED in these grounds). IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you set foot into these treacherous caves PVP is ENABLED and ANY ITEMS LOST UPON DEATH WILL NOT BE RETURNED TO YOU. You CAN NOT leave the caves while in combat (There will be a 30 second timer on your screen indicating how long you have to wait), and if you quit the game while in combat, YOU WILL DIE!
Entrance to the Sparks Cave.
This is a safezone, inside of safezones, you cannot be hurt by mobs or players.
This is the exit portal, this is the only way to leave the Sparks Cave.
When starting out your adventure, the Undead Miners greet you with welcoming er- lethal arms while trying to kill you…
This is the first level you will face, the easiest out of the five. The Undead Miners weld pickaxes and iron helmets. The levels range from 1-25, getting harder with each increasing level. This level also holds the portal, which is the only way to escape to freedom! You can mine goodies such as Iron and Coal as well as Sparks between 5-25.
While the fellas look cute and fluffy, they will kill you on the spot when you step foot in their territory. The Den is the second level you will encounter. From here, the level becomes more difficult than the last. These critters range from level 1 up to 25, with the difficulty getting hard. The Frozen Critters deal more damage and are a little faster at catching you. You can find Iron and Gold ores here, as well as sparks ranging from 20-45. Who knew such adorable critters could be so deadly?!
Once you get past the critters, a beautiful water fountain awaits you! Er- as well as drowned miners littering the grounds… These drowned miners range from level 1 up to 45, with it becoming very hard to fight against these foes. If needed you can seek solitude with the bartender, as well as some other gifts for visiting him! Lapis and Redstone litter the ground, with mobs holding 20-75. When you are done with your mini vacation with your foes, the warm hell awaits next!
These beauts are no joke, they can pack a punch while avoiding the fiery pits below you! The Demented Beasts can range from level 1-45, becoming increasingly difficult as you traverse the lands. Quartz and Netherite Gold ores can be found here, as well as sparks ranging 70-105 for your efforts. Herding these beasts can be such a chore, but stepping foot into the End looms upon you.
Larva of the End
Here it is, the final level. This won’t be an easy feat to accomplish for a young one, as these Ender Larva give a heck of a fight. While they range from level 1- level 25, they are extremely hard to defeat, the hardest of them all. While dodging those little fellas you can find Diamond and Emerald ores here, while obtaining sparks between 100 - 135. You have done it, you completed the caves! Or did you?...
Each level rewards you with Sparks each time you kill a mob; the deeper you go the more Sparks you get. Be careful traveler, if you die you lose your stuff (Fly is also disabled in these grounds)!
The Random Shop contains items that rotate every six hours with different… you guessed it... random items! During that period, you can buy or sell as many of those items as you want! You can access the shop with /shop or /randomshop!
The Auction House
With Oneblock comes a new auction house system! You can now set a BIN (Buy It Now) price and a Bidding price with specific increments for the bid! You can list an item on the auction house by equipping the item in your hand. Then use the command
Ex. /ah sell 50000 20000 200 24
You can view all items on the Auction House by using the command /ah.
To buy an item at the BIN price, simply right click on the item!
To bid on an item left click on the item.
Sparks are a brand new virtual currency exclusive to Oneblock! You can obtain Sparks through fighting the dangerous creatures of The Sparks Caves underneath the Oneblock spawn! Collecting Sparks has its benefits! You can use them to purchase unique items that may not be obtainable elsewhere! Sparks can be purchased from the Sparks Merchant by using /sparks shop! The Sparks shop contains two different kinds of items, standard and rare items. Standard items change every 24 hours. Rare items change every 3 days.
Airdrops are drops that can be won from crates, redeemed from rank kits, or purchased using Gridbits . They can only be called inside the Oneblock cave system and take 15 seconds to drop in. Inside the airdrops are kits that you can take. Be aware, players can kill you in the caves and can steal your airdrops!
With Oneblock comes a brand new Custom Enchantments system!
There are not 1… not 2… but 3 brand new tiers for Custom Enchants!
You can access enchantments with /enchants menu as well as accessing more information about each enchantment with /enchantsindex
Tier 1 (400 exp) - Tier 1 Books have a higher chance of getting a lower level custom enchantment book such as a level 1 or 2, but if you are lucky enough, you might get the highest tier of an enchantment!
Tier 2 (1400 exp) - Tier 2 Books have a higher chance of getting a middle level of a custom enchant book, you can still get lower or higher level custom enchantment books.
