Welcome to the Creeper's Lab! We have multiple Minecraft servers and an active community, mostly focused on playing Survival mode. We also have special games, events and contests! If you're not already playing with us, please don't hesitate to join. Newcomers welcome!
You don't need to register to quickly join and look around our main survival server, but you will need to in order to play. Register today!
Ahh, Minecraft Classic. Many of you never experienced it, but it's the point in Minecraft's lifetime where the game really started to get noticed and reported on. The game received a lot of improvements since then and is quite different, but how about we look back at what used to be the hottest game to try?
Introducing the June 2018 seasonal contest: Minecraft Classic! I've created a simulated copy of the old mode within the seasonal server. This includes the following limitations:
- The world is limited to 256 x 256 x 64 blocks only
- Playable in creative mode
- A limited list of materials is available
What you build is up to you! Pixel art was especially popular in that era, but any type of build is accepted, at any size, as long as it uses a reasonable amount of room so that other players also have room to grow.
This is the last event of the current cycle of Merit Points, along with the June UHC challenge. Score points now; the winners of the past year will be announced after this, along with an updated points system!
A map is available for your convenience.
As indicated above, you'll be building in creative mode, with the full ability of flight. You can only build up to y=63, so be sure not to cross that threshold. You can pick your materials from the creative menu, but keep in mind that only the following will be available:
- Wooden Planks
- Leaves (Oak)
- Stone Slabs
- Moss Stone
- Saplings (Oak)
- Flowers (Red and Yellow)
- Mushrooms (Brown and Red)
- Wool (all 16 colors)
- Ores (Iron, Coal and Gold)
- Iron block
- Gold block
The space is limited, so you might need to get close to other players. Still, please leave at least 3 blocks between entries. Also, place a sign on your entry so we know it's yours. You can make multiple builds, but only one will be judged - please mark it as your selected one on a sign if you've got multiples.
This contest takes place on the Seasonal server, which is accessible through Laurasia's TransHub in Central. There is no exit portal (buttons didn't exist in Classic!), so remember that you can /lobby out at any time to head back to a different world.
The top three entries as selected by the contest judges will consist of the following amount of Merit Points:
- First place: 50
- Second place: 30
- Third place: 15
This is your last chance to score points before winners are announced, and there are multiple prizes on the line, so be sure to participate! There are physical and digital goodies to be won! As this happens in creative mode, you don't even need to gather any supplies. As always, you can see your current position on the leaderboard.
Interested in judging for this? Please get in touch with me!
This contest will end on the 30 June, at 23:59 Eastern Time. That gives you three weeks to realize your best ideas!
A few weeks ago, you were asked to vote on the Lemuria contest entries that were built by the judges of said contest. Three entries were eligible, with these final results...
Doctacosa (hi!) got the first place, while both MediaKlepto and MineshaftBob ended up tied for second place. The Bobs each won an increase of $5 on their Patreon pledging values, provided by Sora, while my own prize is still being worked on. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote, and congrats to everyone involved!
If you're looking forward to a new building contest, I might have some news for you very soon, so keep an eye on this space!
I'm going to take some time next Sunday, the 27th, to upgrade the dedicated server's operating system to the latest version. I'm planning to start the process in the morning. This is something that'll take a few hours if everything goes right, or a day or two if problems happen (hopefully not!). During that time, many items will be offline, including but not limited to:
- The Minecraft servers
- The Starbound server
- The Discord - IRC chat bridge
- Some of the subdomains (like the server maps)
The Discord server will remain available during this operation and I'll be around to keep you informed. I'll also use this opportunity to perform more in-depth backups than usual to ensure that we can quickly get back on our feet if anything goes wrong down the line!
The points for last month's challenge map have been awarded to everyone who visited it. I hope you had enjoyed your visit!
This month, we are going back to UHC. A new world has been introduced, low in size but high in challenge! As always, PvP is enabled, and you can earn 5 Merit Points for reaching each of these targets:
- Crafting a bookshelf
- Crafting an enchantment table
- Access the Nether
- Pick up a blaze rod
If you attempt this or not is up to you, but a visit should at least be in order!
For various reasons, some large regions have been claimed over time: big cities, natural reserves, large building projects, etc. To help new and old players alike to identify these regions and avoid trying to build when it's not possible, they have now been flagged on the map. You can hide these markers by using the layers button at the left and unchecking the "Regions" option if you so wish.
If you can think of other areas that should be identified, please reply to this news post or contact me directly and I'll take care of it.
I've also taken this opportunity to clearly identify the main rail lines of the overworld, especially the four cardinal ones. You can make them appear by checking the "Rails" layer option.
On an unrelated note, I've made some changes yesterday to the players list seen in-game, which you usually bring up by holding the Tab key. That list will now display the players across the network instead of only being focused on the location you are on. Players marked in white are on the same server as you, while those in grey are somewhere else!
It's been awhile, so I figure it's time to see if I can kill.... Er... Entertain the lot of you.
This Saturday, April 21st, at 10pm est, I am inviting everyone to Skelebrony Nether Fortress. This has been my private hunting grounds for a long time, and for one night only, I'm letting people in. However, it costs a diamond at the door.
For the event, there's a few rule changes. I'm sure you'll notice it right away, so we'll keep it mum. Some stated rules will be, no looting swords, no unfair advantages. The aim is to collect wither skulls, whoever manages the most in the time, gets the stash of payment diamonds. Then everyone can take a turn in the Wither Lounge "cashing" in your skulls for precious stars. You will be directed where to go before the event.
Afterwards, if there's still participants that want to, some nether spleef at the Coldstone Crematorium can take place, or other activities in the area.
At long last, here are the results for last year's Lemuria building contest!
Each entry in Minetropolis, Halfway and West Halfway has been judged according to the initial set of criterias. Then, each player's scores were totalled to know how many points they earned in total. Visibly unfinished entries weren't counted. From there, we know who came out on top!
Without further wait, the final scores!!
Congratulations to all! This means that Primagen, axe_y and Coneva have each earned a prize. Here's what they win, from the original news post:
Each person in the top 3 can choose either a $50 amazon giftcard, a 3D printed statue of their minecraft skin, or an additional minecraft account, in addition to the below merit points:
--1st Place: Choice of one of the above prizes, and 50 merit points
--2nd Place: Choice of one of the above prizes, and 30 merit points
--3rd Place: Choice of one of the above prizes, and 15 merit points
The fourth place, held by Lacar, also wins a little something in-game! Sora will get in touch for you to claim your prize. The full list of entries and comments can be viewed on their individual pages: Minetropolis, Halfway and West Halfway.
And that's not all!
Three of the judges have also made entries set to be ranked separately. Please vote for your favorite! These final results will be published in a week or so.
All three locations have several building lots available still, and you're welcomed to claim one or several to create something of your own. The goal is to eventually fill in all available spots!
We hope that you enjoyed this large-scaled event and will join us on the next ones!
The April challenge is now live! This time around, I've pulled something from the archives: you get to explore a world that was only available for a single day, two years ago, but this time with a full month ahead of you to dive in deeper... or get higher?
This is a free month: you don't need to hit any specific targets, just entering the world will be enough to score 5 Merit Points. That gives you all the latitude to have fun exploring this world and make what you can of it. You'll find it in the lobby, as usual.
The points for last month's parkour challenge have also been attributed. Congratulations to axe_y, who was the only one to actually make it all the way through!
Looking for the long-awaited results of the Minetropolis contest, or to be on the receiving end of some SCIENCE? Well, you're in luck, as Sora's got news on both fronts!
It's just about time for another -WTF is Sora doing now-.
"Hey Sora where's the contest resuuuuuuults?"
Hush your facessssss, judging just completed. Point compiling is nearly done, and we'll have results and winners posted on April 4th, so tune in Wednesday ya vultures.
But that's not why we're heeeeere.
I'm inviting everyone to a special 'Science' edition of Spider Dome, and you're all my guinea pigs.
Yes, you should be afraid.
There's a few new events in the works, and a couple of them involve... well, science.
And what better way to test science than on all of you!
It's not just all for my amusement, however, and there will be rewards to be gained from what you can.. collect.
Stop on by Spiderdome this Saturday at 10pm EST for a... Party? Party.
Need a break from trying to conquer this month's Kenorland challenge? Maybe that gave you a taste for more parkour?
Well, you're in luck! We now have two extra courses thanks to Coneva and SorathePumpking. Both have been tested and are awaiting your presence! You'll find these in the Games section of the lobby, under Parkour. We now have a total of 8 courses for you to enjoy.
You'd like to design a course of our own? Make your way to Central, enter the "Game Dev" teleporter in the TransHub, and claim an available area! You are free to build what you want in creative mode to be potentially included in the lobby later on.
