The server's migration is now complete. This update doesn't change the hardware category we were running on, but was required by my host to move to a more advanced control panel.
The server's IP address has changed! It is now:
Those who keep direct links to the map will have to update them, as it is now located over at 188.8.131.52:8123. The map is currently regenerating and will be fully available later in the day.
The previous IP address will keep working for now to display to connecting players a message inviting them to move to the new address. It will be taken down in a few weeks; as such, please don't wait too long before making the jump!
Please note that the chatroom connection is broken until further notice. I will update this post once it's back in working order.
UPDATE: The chatroom is back in working order!
Sphenicus has released today a variant of the Creeper's Lab resource pack. This new edition, dubbed Notato, features a lighter and quieter rain than the standard version. The current, primary download remains unchanged.
If you're interested in this feature, get the Notato edition from the same download page!
Thanks to AshaLina's effort, the Creeper's Lab is now present on Instagram! Be sure to send her screenshots of the server and yours builds to be posted there, and follow the account to be posted on future updates!
As a reminder, we're also on Tumblr among others. Tag the appropriate posts with "#creeper's lab", and I'll happily reblog them for all to see!
The server is two years old as of today! I'd like to take this time to thank all the past and current players for making the Creeper's Lab the popular place it is today!
In the past year, we've had one giveaway, two successful contests, the introduction of Events Nights and its many attractions, and more! Several surprises are also in store for the coming months, so keep an eye on this spot for future announcements.
Window to the past
As we're going through a major reorganization of Central and its surrounding areas, remember that the place used to be more much empty and surrounded by wild nature!
Once again, thank you for playing with us, and here's again to many more years of minecrafting!
I'd like to remind new and old players alike that Saturday nights are Events Night! Starting at 9pm Eastern time and lasting several hours, this special period features several attractions that can be enjoyed by yourself or as part of a group! To make things easier, there are a number of teleporters enabled all around the map for quick travel. Also, and only during those periods, no items or experience will be lost when dying. This makes it much easier to organize PvP matches!
The activities available include PvP arenas, parkour, mazes, racetracks, roller coasters, chess and more! For a full list, please see the list of attractions. The page has been updated with the latest additions, including Avoid the Rainbow and the SpiderDome. Please note that the former, by Septina, has been moved to Victoria. Windgrabah now also features a teleportation point.
Recently added by iKatze is the Unforgiveable Labyrinth. Found southwest of Central and reachable through it's own teleport, this event is a challenging maze where you aim to find your way to the end while finding hidden bones. Prizes are awarded to those who make it through. Perfect for those still in the Halloween mood, or wanting to try something different!
