The various servers will be gradually updated to properly support Java 1.16.3. This will have no impact on the gameplay, but you will have to use that version to continue playing. If you're still on 1.16.2, it's time to update!
Thanks to recent improvements on Patreon's platform, I'm now able to offer two new options to you!
First, something that I've been asked about a few times: annual payments instead of monthly! This way, you can prepay for an entire year, showing your support without having to worry about having another monthly bill. Plus, you're getting 8% off the total amount, which works out to a free month! New patrons, you will find this option right under the "Join" buttons. Existing backers who want to switch, please check out this help page for the details.
Second, Europeans now have the choice to pay in Euro (€) or British Pounds (£) instead of using the US Dollar ($), giving you amounts that will be more familiar without having to deal with conversion fees. Plus, by picking one of these options, you're locking in the exchange rate, ensuring that you pay a fixed amount per month rather than something that changes slightly every time. Hopefully, this is something that some of you will appreciate! To change the currency you pay in, please check these instructions.
As a reminder, backing me on Patreon helps to cover the basic server costs plus the added advertising, which is key to bring in new players and build a healthy community. Thank you for your consideration!
Expanding our support for the Bedrock platform a step further, our resource pack is now available for its players as well!
The next time you try to connect to the server, a download will be offered to enable it. If you prefer to install it manually on Windows 10 Edition, either to play here or elsewhere, you can grab it from the resource pack page!
A few things like music discs don't work at the moment, but as with everything else, compatibility is expected to improve over time.
Minecraft 1.16.3 was released today by Mojang, and all servers have been updated to support it. Java players, you can now connect using either 1.16.2 or the new 1.16.3. Bedrock players, you're already set to go!
I'm doing something new today by introducing a first: a Creeper's Lab line of merchandise!
Ever wanted a shirt, a hoodie, stickers, a mug, or something else with the logo of the Creeper's Lab? Well, now you can! There's a wide array of items and styles available, and I suggest you give it a look if you think you might be interested! Every single purchase goes to support my ongoing projects.
I've made a point of ordering various items myself in the past months to sample the quality, and I must say that I'm satisfied with everything I have received. I have standards to uphold and wouldn't go for the first, cheapest option available! Plus, on many of the clothing items like the shirts and the hoodies, you can choose the fabric color to match your own preferences.
Also worth noting for international buyers, while standard shipping fees apply, there are no additional duty fees to be expected on delivery: what you see in your shopping cart will be the final amount you pay.
One notable exception in the line-up is about the face masks. I have received a request for one, so I've put a few designs up for your consideration, but I've chosen to sell these at cost as I'm not interested in making money off a global pandemic.
As this covers the Interordi network, there is also a selection of Interordi-branded products, should you be interested in these.
I can add new designs at will, so if there's something you want but the current designs don't quite match, get in touch and maybe I can make it work!
Go browse the shop at your leisure! Once again, any item purchase helps to support the work I do, so thank you for your consideration! The holiday season is coming up in only three months, maybe you could even find a gift idea in there...?
If you have both Java and Bedrock accounts, you can now choose to link them to carry a single inventory across both. This lets you keep on playing seamlessly from anywhere, without having to add both names to your in-game permissions! If you do this, you will use your Java identity everywhere. Here's how to do this:
- From your Java account, enter
/linkaccount BEDROCK_NAME, without the tilde.
- From your Bedrock account, enter
/linkaccount JAVA_NAMEfollowed by the number provided in step 1.
- Bedrock will now disconnect. Make sure that Java is also disconnected, then you can connect using either at any time with a shared inventory and position in the network!
- If you want to break the link, enter
/unlinkaccountfrom either account.
If you want to use your two accounts separately, for example to use one for playing and one for idling, or to be active in two different locations at once, you shouldn't use account linking.
No matter which option you pick, player statistics and achievement tracking will check across both accounts automatically.
I have also used this opportunity to add a new page on the website to regroup all of the relevant Bedrock player information, you will find it in the menu under the Basics section.
You've enjoyed the new Nether, explored its new biomes and collected many precious resources. That's good. But what if you had to do it all... starting from scratch?
This month's Kenorland challenge has you facing a brand new Nether world, completely stripped of any equipment or utilities. Your goal will be to survive and make the best of the situation as possible! Rumor has it that it's entirely possible, and that the piglins can have trades that could be relevant to your ongoing survival...
This is a survival challenge, and not UHC, so you can die and resume playing right away. Likewise, PvP has been disabled for this round. Everyone who tries it will earn 5 Merit Points for their efforts
Oh, and this Nether is 256 blocks tall.
At the Hunter's Lodge, a brand new raid boss makes its premiere this month: face the new Bastion's ultimate challenge, powered up! Gather up your allies and go defeat him! Also roaming the lands is a certain someone surrounded by flying insects and holding a rare piece of paper. Will you take a stand and declare your independence from their tyranny?
Tasmantis was brought back online as a testing ground for 1.16 and Bedrock support, plus to allow people to mine the new Nether materials.
As the interest level as gone down, it's time to schedule its closure, which will happen on September 14. That gives you two more weeks to gather all the supplies you want and move them to another server. Use this time well!
