I'm happy to release today a brand new look for the website of the Creeper's Lab!
While the previous appearance of the website had some charm, I felt like it was overdue for a redesign, hopefully giving it a somewhat more professional appearance and a better structure. I've been slowly working on this for the past few months, leading to what you're seeing today. An additional motivation for this was to have a layout that would better support multiple servers in the future, with everything related to each one regrouped in easily noticed sections.
The information for each server is now color-coded. The Creeper's Lab, both as a website and a network, is keeping the green creeper beaker as its main logo. The survival server will adopt a new squid beaker along with a dark blue theme. The upcoming server, due to its expanded range of PvP and fighting options, will use a blaze beaker and a related orange color. These logos will appear in your Minecraft client's servers list, on each news item when viewed on the website, and in the right menu bar. That way, you can quickly identify which part of the Creeper's Lab is affected with a news update or some key information.
You can easily see a result of this in the right menu bar, where the IP address of the server is always visible along with the current server version and what versions of the Minecraft client are compatible with it. This will hopefully make it easier for new and current players to find their way around quickly.
Among some of the other changes on this new website:
- A new dropdown menu, which will work better with some web browsers.
- Links to all pages, including past contest results.
- Clarified rules with some extra information.
- And some other surprises!
As such, I invite you to click around, discover what's new, and reply to this news post with your comments! Also, be sure to report anything that might look wrong on your end. While I ran multiple tests over the last few weeks, it's possible that something escaped me! I want your feedback!
