Welcome to the Creeper's Lab! We have multiple Minecraft servers and an active community, mostly focused on playing Survival mode. We now support both Java Edition and Bedrock Edition! We also have special games, events and contests. If you're not already playing with us, 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!
Minecraft Java Edition 1.16.5 has been released today to fix some critical server issues. It happens to be compatible to .4, so you can move to it whenever you want! The potential problems are already fixed through our network, so we're good to go.
I'm introducing today a small feature to help you navigate the various worlds: the
Used as-is, this displays your current position along with the cardinal direction you're looking at. You can also use
/pos on to have a display that auto-updates as you move around; it will fade out after a few seconds of staying put. To completely turn it off, use
This is available for both Java and Bedrock players and is a lighter alternative to the full debug screen, some client mods or Bedrock-only settings. Give it a try!
It's early in the month, but some tuning to Race Away has been done!
The in-game positions display will now feature the progression of the runners in increments of 500 metres, so everyone can get a better idea on how things are going. On death, temporarily, the top position of that runner will be used instead. The network-wide chat announcements remain at 5000 metres increments.
The amount of hostile mobs that spawn has been lowered by 25% as the large number was actually causing lag both locally and server-side. Make no mistake, this still isn't a walk in the park!
Nature is angry.
You've plundered the land, grinded resources, all to empower yourself and hopefully earn a few points. Did you ever consider the consequences of such efforts, though...?
This month's challenge in Kenorland is Race Away! You start at 0, 0, with no equipment, and you must reach the highest X coordinate in the month by running East. Flee away from 2020, from these troubles, and run, run East, as far as you can!
There are no horses and no Nether to provide shortcuts. Dying sends you allllllll the way back to the beginning, so be careful! You can only move on the Z axis between -500 and 500.
All runners will earn Merit Points based on the amount of participants. Let's say that 10 people enter this month: whoever comes up first will earn 10 points, the second place 9, the third place 8, and so on. If there are 15 entrants, the first place will get 15 points, second 14, etc.
But remember: nature is angry.
Last month's Grindatron saw quite a bit of activity from many people! Here is the final tally of the amount of targets reached by each player.
All of your points have been assigned; you can see them in your profile or with a
The raid bosses at the Hunter's Lodge are now set on a twelve months schedule to ensure a proper rotation. To open up the new year, John Madden and Bagel Man are waiting to be picked on. Plus, I hear that Jack Torrance and Redrum are still somewhere in there. Build up a group, or go at it solo, and raid these bosses to get their precious drops!
Additionally, all event items from the raid bosses were recently updated and improved. If you haven't done so yet, make sure you go to the basement of the post office, at the Creeper Citadel, to trade the old versions for the new ones!
It's time for our last event of the year, right on New Year's Eve. Take it over, Coneva!
It's been a long year, hasn't it? Most of us stuck at home, with nowhere to go-- except into a game.. or two... or more. XD
And most definitely Minecraft was among them, offering adventure and travel right from our seats.
Creeper's Lab welcomed the integration of Bedrock into our Java servers, expanding our player base with a lot of new faces. In spite of the gridlock that the real world around us became, our beloved server became more active than ever.
So what could be better to welcome our newest players, and reconnect with old friends, than with a classic Creeper's Lab game night?!
New Year's Eve, starting 8 pm, (EST), join us for a special events night!
We will kick off the evening with several rounds of TNT Tag, where the winner will receive a special in-game award to show off back at their home base. Following this, feel free to join us in several special arena challenges and games, where the only loss will be the fun if you miss it. (There might even be some bonuses if you do participate.)
We will wrap up the event with a return to Townshend where, as our longtime players know, the boardwalk is loaded with 'larger than life' board games and activities!
Keep Inventory will be turned on in Laurasia for the event, and turned off when everyone goes to bed XD.
So grab your favorite beverage and come play with us for a fun filled Night to help us ring in the New Year!
See you in game!
The issue where you could respawn in the wrong location in various worlds has been fixed. To make sure that your position is set properly, it's important that you try to sleep in a bed across all servers that you're active on, at least once!
In recent versions of the game, your spawn is set whenever you try to sleep in a bed, even during daytime. Furthermore, to get phantoms to leave you alone, you only need to rest in a bed until the screen fully dims out - you don't need to skip the night entirely!
It's been a long year for everyone, even for the jolly guy in red at the North Pole. Santa is getting ready to distribute his gifts, but he needs your help to make that happens on time! Kimonellos has planned out something to help you do just that.
That's the starting point of this event, which is entirely located on the Seasonal server, accessible from Central. From there, you need to complete a quest in three parts.
Mobs are roaming the forest surrounding the starting village. You need to venture out there to kill mobs and gather their drops. Two types of mobs are present, dropping various types of parts.
Bring the drops you have gathered to Santa's workshop, where you can trade them in to obtain gifts prepared by the elves. This is also where you can eventually cash-in your rewards.
You can then bring these gifts back to the village and place them... under the Christmas trees, of course! Please insert one gift at a time to avoid overloading the trees. Once this is completed, you will obtain Christmas Points, which can be redeemed back at Santa's workshop. Getting enough Christmas Points might even get you some rare Merit Vouchers!
You can do this set of trades as much as you want to gather more Christmas Points and/or rewards, so you can try this for a few minutes only or play for several hours. Try to collect the whole set!
Note that you can use your regular inventory in seasonal then bring the rewards back to the survival servers, so pack in a shulker box or two to move items around! Head to Central's TransHub, right next to the train station and TARDIS in Central, to access the seasonal server.
This event begins NOW and will end on Christmas Day. Help Santa when you get the chance!
After all the votes have been tallied, a clear winner has emerged, and our wiki now has its name: Creeperpedia!
As a reminder, the wiki can be accessed and edited by anyone: login using your Discord account and go! Everyone is welcomed to contribute to make this resource as complete as it can be. Plus, you can use the
/wiki command in-game to run searches whenever you need to look something up.
We're having another month with plenty to keep you busy!
This Saturday, the 19th, right as Event Night starts, Kimonellos invites you for a Christmas-themed event that will run for an entire week. You get to do something different, then earn rewards for your efforts at the end! The full details will be posted as the event begins, make sure to be there!
Furthermore, with the likely cancellation of many New Year's Eve parties, Coneva has cooked up something to have some low-risk, high-energy fun. Get in-game at 8pm Eastern time on the 31st in order to participate; the teleporters network will be enabled for this special occasion! A reminder will be posted a few days before.
In Kenorland, Grindatron is still ongoing. There are no losers in this, only winners as every single point you earn is yours to keep, so be sure to enter! Starting on day 1, day 15 or day 30 only changes the amount of points you can possibly earn, as there is no catch-up to do.
Our Bedrock support is ever improving! Some of you have already noticed that placed heads now have their proper appearances, players can see their own skins and movement is more reliable overall. There is still some work to be done, of course, so you can look forward to further updates!
After taking in name suggestions for the past week, it's time to move on to the vote!
You can order the names available from your most favorite to least. The winning name will be unveiled in about a week from now!
