Build contest: An underwater base!

Posted by Doctacosa on 13 September 2021 at 21:46 [Link]

It's time for a new building contest, with a fresh concept! StTheo invites you to build none other than an underwater base, made out of multiple interconnected modules.

The top three winners can win 50, 30 and 15 Merit Points respectively.

The contest starts today and will last three weeks, thus ending on Monday, 4 October. Get in early to showcase your creativity!

Here's StTheo with the full details and rules.


Background

The barely functional remains of an underwater base have been discovered near the town of Haven. In an effort to study it, researchers have decided to enlist builders to expand it into a functional research colony.

This is heavily inspired by the game "Subnautica".

Location

The town of Haven lies in the far north, accessible on both the overworld and nether sides from Sanctum. On the nether side, travel from the "StTheo" stop and use the door marked with a "Haven" sign.

The town is a work in progress and a literal shell of its former self, but does have a stocked general store (housing the nether portal) you are free to use with lots of supplies for building projects.

The contest area itself is south of Haven, out of Haven's rail station. I've set up armor stands guiding the way to the contest area and signs at the actual tracks.

Judging

Builds will be judged 50/50 on aesthetics vs functionality, but only if the module does not put the base at risk. Functionality will be judged leniently - a glass dome and a single chair has relaxation benefits, if that's what the module for.

Multiple modules per builder are allowed, but the builder must clearly mark whichever one they want judged.

No build will be judged if the "required" modules are not complete.

The Rules

Modules

The base will be made out of modules. Modules must fit in one or two of the pre-determined plots.

The base will start out with a few hallways to build off of, but afterwards it will be up to the colonists how to expand it.

  • You can (and may need to) build modules off of other modules.
  • When building modules, claim a plot immediately with a sign so that other builders aren't taken by surprise.

Required Modules

There must be at least one of each of these modules before the base can be considered complete and judging can begin.

  • Storeroom: Just needs 6 or more containers (double chest counts as 2) for storing building materials and tools.
  • Dormitory: At least 4 beds (in one dormitory or across several) for visitors and those living in the base without their own room.
  • Common Area: Just needs a few chairs and/or anything people might need for de-stressing.
  • Food Production: Needs food storage and a furnace or smoker.
  • Infirmary: Needs a source of water (without directly breaching the hull), a brewing stand, one or more chairs, and one or more beds.

Safety

Your module must not put the base in danger.

  • Hull must be made of sensible blocks: solid, non porous, non-organic.
    • I'll try to be lenient about this: cobblestone would be ok, wood and sponges would not.
    • You can have non-hull blocks on the inside or outside of the hull.
  • Glass is acceptable for the hull (and might look nice).
  • Doors between modules are recommended, iron or piston doors are required for module pressurization.
    • Modules with direct access to the ocean must be pressurized.
    • Piston doors are acceptable and look cooler. They also take up more space, and traditional redstone doesn't really handle well underwater.

Event: Chicking!

Posted by Doctacosa on 9 September 2021 at 21:47 [Link]

Chickens, chickens everywhere! They're out of control! Can you help gathering and sorting them out?

Join us this Saturday, at 10pm Eastern time, for a few rounds of Chicking! In this game, chickens float down from the sky, and four competing players must use fishing poles to gather them on their side of the arena. This mayhem can get frantic very quickly!

The amount of rounds will be determined based on the amount of participants; the event should last around an hour. The top three winners will earn the following:

  • First Place: 10 Merit Points. 2 Merit Vouchers.
  • Second Place: 5 Merit Points. 1 Merit Vouchers.
  • Third Place: 3 Merit Points.

I hear a rumor that a surprise will also happen in the same night, so be sure to join us for some fun!

Monthly challenges update: September 2021

Posted by Doctacosa on 1 September 2021 at 22:26 [Link]

Kenorland: Breaking Bed, take 2!

After all that grinding last month, it would be nice to have a chance to rest, wouldn't it?

This month's challenge is a return of Breaking Bed, under a different formula, with the same goal: find and/or craft each bed color, then break it. Each differently colored bed broken is worth one Merit Point, for a possible total of 16.

To the opposite of the previous run, there are no bed superbosses, so that's one thing you don't need to worry about. There could be something else in all that dirt, though...

Science

Gothmog and his minions are trying to steal the Declaration of Independence so I must steal it first! Stop the Balrog and Nicolas Cage from stealing the Declaration of Independence! Beware of the BEEEEEES!

All Horsemen Quests have also been updated. See the Horseman Points Guide for an in-depth look at the quests, points, and how to cash them in!

Guilds

As with every new month, the guilds have new targets. You have until the end of this month to complete them and claim your tokens!

New apprentices, you start in Laurasia's Guild in Central, then gather points to work your way up to Rodinia, Superia, then Gondwana. Everyone else, all four guildhalls are now available to you, should you have unlocked the access.

Once you have been granted the rank of Master, you can obtain Council Tokens from the Master Guilds in Gondwana. These can be traded for special rewards back at the Council Chamber, at the Creeper Citadel. Each guild on each world also has its own range of rewards, so browse through to find what catches your eye!

If you need details on any of these, the wiki page about the Monthly Challenges is updated as soon as each of these is ready at the beginning of the month!

Sponsored events in September - run your own!

Posted by Doctacosa on 28 August 2021 at 15:37 [Link]

Some of you might not be aware that you can run your own events - you don't need to wait for one to be announced, you can take the initiative! These can be PvP, minigames, Carnival runs, races and more. And we've got something to sweeten the deal for you.

For all of September, anyone who chooses to run their own event will see the rewards doubled - that's free Merit Points and Vouchers for you! Plus, courtesy of the Horseman of Death, you will also receive bonus Horsemen Points! If you need a reminder on what these can be good for, I invite you to read the wiki's page on our virtual currencies.

But, "How do I run an event?", you might be asking yourself? It's easy, since we've got templates ready to go!

  1. Look through the set of templates and pick one that interests you.
  2. Go post on the forums with the date, time and event type that you want to run.
  3. Once confirmed, it will be posted on the website's calendar, in the news, plus in our Steam group to notify its followers.

That's it! There are four weekends in September, and you can pick any time of your choosing. Multiple events can happen during the same weekend if there's enough interest, as long as they don't overlap each other.

Note that building contests follow different guidelines.

Questions? Get in touch, we'll be happy to answer them!

Lobby refresh!

Posted by Doctacosa on 26 August 2021 at 19:24 [Link]

The familiar lobby that you use to move between worlds has received a full overhaul! Gone is the stone box of waterfalls, in is a more varied landscape waiting to be explored! All world entry points have remained in their locations, so you get the advantages of an updated scenery without the confusion of having to find your way around.

On first join, players will automatically get two books: one describing the various wings of the lobby, the other offering a summary of our Survival worlds. These will hopefully be useful to newcomers as they learn what we have to offer.

Have fun exploring!

Tasmantis shutting down in a week

Posted by Doctacosa on 23 August 2021 at 22:12 [Link]

I hope everyone enjoyed their experience of exploring and mining the new materials added in 1.17! With the interest level in Tasmantis calming down, it's time to retire it. This will happen on Monday next week; this gives you a full week left to go gather any materials you want from there!

Introducing The Sandbox!

Posted by Doctacosa on 22 August 2021 at 19:06 [Link]

A special message from Groovy!


Ever want a creative world where you can go to test a redstone contraption? Check out a block color palette? Build without worrying about gathering resources? That's what the Sandbox is for. The Sandbox is a new affiliate server hosted by GroovyBanana and can be found in the lobby in the affiliates section. This new server is available to members of trusted rank or higher and the same rules of Creeper's Lab apply there, the big ones being no griefing and keep your chat clean. With this server being restricted to trusted or above, I expect there will be no problems.

This world will be unlike other worlds here on Creeper's Lab, the big thing being that the world will most likely be reset at semi regular intervals. I really don't have any idea how often this will happen, it will depend greatly on how much the server is used. Warning will be given before anything is deleted and if you have a build that you really don't want to lose, chances are arrangements will be able to be made so that you don't lose the build. Another thing of note, this is a flat world. One rule that it is different from Creeper's Lab, if you want to access the nether roof, go for it.

I hope the community finds this useful! I know I hop onto a creative world on a regular basis and I always missed having the server chat or the ability to easily invite someone to take a look at something. If you have any questions, comments or feedback feel free to reach out to me in game or on Discord.

Thanks, GroovyBanana
