If you see a creeper while walking outside today, don't worry:it's Halloween! It won't blow up! Or at least, it shouldn't...
For those in the festive mood, you can now visit the Haunted House! From Central, take the overworld train line to Victoria, then follow the indications. The house will be expanded with more horrific content once we've moved over to 1.4!
We now have two more operators on the Creeper's Lab!
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who applied for the positions. I received more feedback than I expected, and it's great to see that so many of you care enough about the community to help make it better!
Of course, I couldn't promote everyone, which means that Anonymous_SoFar and Kusorai have been appointed as server ops! Congratulations to the both of you!
Here we go again!
Unless a major bug is found soon, Minecraft will be updated to 1.4 this Thursday. However, wait before upgrading if you want to keep playing with us! The server software will probably take hours, days or even a few weeks to be updated, and 1.4 clients won't be able to connect until that happens. Keep an eye on this space for future updates!
To keep on growing over time and to assist the player base, I'm looking for one or two server ops to join the current staff.
The tasks of each op involve helping new players find their way around, answer questions from everyone, enforce the rules and settle conflicts.
It should go without saying that only people currently registered on the server will be considered. If you're interested, please send a private message to me, Dr. Cossack, through the forums. You have a bit over a week from now to contact me before I make the final selection!
I'm happy to report that, after several months of work, the Transoceanic Line has been completed! This railway, over 22 kilometers long, links Central to Port Townshend through the overworld. I personally timed the travel duration to 57 minutes, making this by far the longest rideable rail on the server!
With a total of 6 stops between the two cities, this is obviously not the fastest way to travel, but it's definitely the most original one! For those looking to move quickly, on business or otherwise, the Nether path is only 6 minutes and a half long.
Themed stops are available for visiting along the way. Some people, myself included, are also planning to create sprite artwork to add to the scenery. Here are screenshots of all the stations currently available - click on them to see more details!
Joining our fearless YouTube crew is none other than resident op WindRider739! He contributed his first clip, featuring the town of Port Townshend, two days ago and is planning to do special features from time to time.
