It’s a long way down when you spawn in the void of the sky, Skyring is a Skyblock inspired map with several differences that make it quite an entertaining minecraft survival challenge. One must be careful when taking advantage of the apparent convenience that is the water elevator, for drowning is the least of your worries.
As the sun sets on your first day on the small island in the sky, the fire in the creeper’s eyes seems to grow higher, inviting you into its dangerous belly.
Exploration is quickly rewarded in this survival map, so don’t be shy to tear down every structure you see. There are no rules in this map because you’ll be hard pressed to even play the thing. This a flat pack, clip together multi fuel cooking stove for the solo or lightweight outdoors enthusiast, 100% designed and manufactured in the UK.
Following the success of The Honey Stove and The Hive, many enthusiasts have asked for a simpler smaller solo cooking solution which incorporates the same multi-fuel features and flexibility. The fluted shape encourages a more intense burn from any heat source, yet provides reliable stability for the standard range of small cook pots and military shaped mugs up to 10-12 cm in diameter.
It also means that it also provides a pot support as well as windshield for most variations of pop can meths (denatured alcohol) burners. Simplicity is the key and it has been tested throughout winter, to ensure it can be assembled quickly in the cold.
With just the four panels, the standard Trangia burner will locate into the upper slot and the door locks tight.
Finally, just three panels linked together can act as a basic windshield and pot support, should you ever require it. Your Pocket Stove package consists of a fire door, a rear panel, 2 x side panels, a base plate and a hinged storage tin.
Holding the rear panel in your hand with the prongs facing upwards, slide on the two side panels either side. Assemble as above however place the square base into the lower horizontal slot taking care to ensure the rear of the base plate is correctly placed centrally in the rear panel. Assemble as above, however instead of using the square plate, just place the Trangia burner into either of the horizontal slots. The Pocket Stove is manufactured using .7mm Stainless Steel which is considerably stronger than it looks. The design is exceedingly efficient at reflecting heat inwards and upwards whilst at the same time allowing the correct amount of air draw for the different cookers or fuel used. To start any fire you require tinder, which will catch the spark from a flint and steel, or other igniting tool. These are made by splitting a finger thick stick into quarters and running a sharp knife along the edge to ‘curl’ the dry core into fine slithers.
Cotton wool dipped in Vaseline is very efficient as is the commercially available Hammaro Tinder Card.

The stoves works more efficiently with small pieces of dried wood no thicker than a pencil.??Thicker pieces take longer to ignite and are more cumbersome to collect and break. Don’t overfill the base plate with fuel before lighting, as good combustion requires good airflow. We’ve found using a small piece of Hammaro Tinder CardTM will ignite instantly from a flint and steel, and accelerates the lighting of dried kindle. Once the fire is established and there is a good ‘heat’ at the base, add the thicker fuel on a regular basis, to maintain the desired cooking heat. NB: Remember modern artificial fabrics used in jackets, trousers, sleeping bags and tents ignite very easily. So where possible, try to ensure you place the stove over bare earth, sand, stone or use a protective matting or foil.
On a stone or sandy beach, you may not need the ash tray at all, however always consider your environment and please dispose of the fine ash with appropriate and responsible care.
Please allow enough ventilation around the stove and ensure that all the component parts are cool before packing. The efficient use of a small amount of organic matter is much more eco-friendly than the more convenient commercial fuels, such as petroleum based derivatives and natural gas (LPG). The idea that the magnesium doesn’t ignite in its block form, but only when shaved into fine pieces is absolutely brilliant (the magnesium shavings provide a flame source of 2,982°C). The advantage this type of device has over traditional standalone firesteels is that it has a source of tinder attached to it. A recent collaboration between two well known brands in the fields of bushcraft and survival has produced a knife that will appeal to a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts. Mora of Sweden have been producing low cost, high quality knives which can be found in the hands of most bushcraft practitioners.
Next up we have Light My Fire, another Swedish company whose products can be found in the kits of many survivalists, most notably their famous firesteels. The newest FireSteel from LMF is a welcome improvement over the previous model in terms of design. One spawns at the very top of the concentric sky rings, with one block of water which serves as a four pronged elevator through the various biomes available on the skyring ,a bed and trees growing up from below on four sides. There is a desert ring, a jungle ring, a forest ring, a snow ring, you get the general idea. The innards of the creeper are a dangerous place to be sure, but there are rewards for those who valiantly persist in their mission despite the many dangers. Where islands once flourished now mere blocks are considered sufficient basis for a survival map.
The appeal of SkyGrid comes in making sense out of chaos, of turning a jumbled mass of elements into something coherent. While the 550 cord and it’s internal strands can sure come in handy in a survival emergency once unravelled and gutted, they don’t offer anything but cordage.

Experimentation will indicate the best location for you heat source, either on the square plate, or placed on the ground with the four connected panels placed over the top. Place the square base into the top horizontal slot taking care to ensure the rear of the base plate is rotated correctly and placed centrally in the rear panel. Small dry pieces of wood, which will burn with a greater heat and light the thicker dry fuel. Always look for air-dried wood caught in tree branches, as these catch and burn much more effectively. We would always advise you to light any fire in a well-ventilated area, with a good throughput of air, such as under a tarp. Having a readily available source of dry tinder in a survival situation can be a lifesaver.
When a brand is praised by Canadian bushcraft legend Mors Kochanski, you know it’s worth checking out. Although I preferred the ability to grasp the old all metal scraper as dictated by my own dexterity, the bulb heads on the new versions are relatively ergonomic. If you lost your main whistle, or relied on this one alone, a whistle is by far more effective than shouting in terms of sound and effort. There is even a farm ring, where the very small space has been engineered to hold an ark number of important animals.
But be sure not to approach the Nether Tower before you have crafted yourself sufficient protections – for the mobs that lurk in that fire proof structure will singe you to an inch of your digital life.
Seth Bling’s SkyGrid survival map takes the theme to its possibly illogical conclusion by placing random environmental blocks in a grid. In more than one way, playing SkyGrid is akin to handling the universe in the moments after the Big Bang.
Whether your enjoy it or not, SkyGrid has already claimed its place among minecraft survival map classics. However, the new Flint and Steel Survival Bracelet from Kryptek incorporates fire making tools into the clasp. However the same burner will also locate into the lower slot offering two heat settings depending on your needs.
The other irritant of this otherwise fantastic device is the necessity of a sharp blade or some type of robust scraper to shave the magnesium block (the block of magnesium is quite hard). So, you don’t just get a bracelet with a unique look but also both fire making and cordage to deal with extreme situations. Scraping magnesium shavings off the main block can be time consuming and frustrating if you don’t have the right technique.
