Because the spuds must be protected and cherished, of course.
The Humble Potato committee is inviting you to a PvP tournament at a newly created area just for this purpose! This Sunday, at 6 pm Eastern time (4 pm Mountain time), head to the End of Time, PvP & Battles section. Go down a floor and enter the door for succulemon's arena!
Don't come with any equipment: kits will be provided to all participants. The top winner gets a cash prize of $5.00 CAD and a shulker full of potatoes, so make sure you don't miss out!
To help prepare the tournament's structure, please get in touch with @succulem0n on Discord!
See you then!
Thanks to Twixxi, we now have an additional in-game tool for public use!
If you make your way to Central, in the Commercial District, you will find the Super Loom.
This is an automated building that allows you to add patterns to your banners without having to craft an actual loom block. Just bring your banners, your dyes, and hit the buttons to create your own designs!
This could be of special interest to our Bedrock players, as the actual loom crafting table hasn't been implemented yet. Java players can still appreciate the convenience, though. Plus, this structure also lets you go over Minecraft's base limit of 6 layers on banners, so you can try to make some more elaborate designs if you wish!
Go give it a try!
The server versions have been updated tonight, with your usual bug fixes and improvements.
Java players, you will now be required to use 1.16.4 to access the survival servers. Yes, Optifine has been updated.
Bedrock players, you will need the latest version on your platform, which should be 1.16.100 as of this writing. If you haven't been auto-updated yet, go check on that!
Another rotation around the Sun has been completed, and the Creeper's Lab is now nine years old! Thank you everyone for helping this place grow more and more, and proving it has some serious staying power. A lot has happened in the past year, too:
- Updates to 1.15 and 1.16.
- New building contests.
- Four new uses for Merit Points were introduced.
- The forums received a major upgrade in looks and usability.
- A hardware upgrade was done to better handle multiple players.
- We now welcome Bedrock players on all servers.
- The addition of merchandise of all kinds. Shirts! Mugs! Notebooks! Pillows!
- TNT Tag just made its return.
Busy year, and there's always more to come as the train of ideas never slows down!
You know that maps can be generated in-game to look at an area around you. Have you ever wondered how much of the world has been mapped this way?
Well, wonder no more. I've recently found a tool able to generate a composite of all the in-game maps generated, so have a look at Laurasia's current status!
This works by compiling all the in-game maps that have been created, using the best resolution whenever possible. You can see that some players have been very methodical in exploring their entire area and it's shown here in full detail. Other spots like Central don't have any recently refreshed data, so parts appear as they did a few years ago! Meanwhile, more distant locations only appear as a rough blur of vegetation and water.
I've set this display to update itself every 24 hours, so if you want to go explore and showcase your area, you can!
This month also marks the second anniversary of our monthly email newsletter! The newsletter is a good way to stay informed of the major happenings, past and upcoming, even if you don't have the time to drop by to visit us.
Starting this month, I'm introducing a new section where I recall the history of one of our worlds; perfect for those interested in a look back at how things were. This issue focuses on the expansion of Central over time; you can read the current issue here.
If you're interested in more, make sure to subscribe so you don't miss any issue! From now on, it will also be reposted on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds, yet I still suggest subscribing so you don't miss out.
I like to include a visual in these anniversary posts, but rather than have yet another look at Central, here's an interesting angle at our newest world Superia, centered on the spawn area of Styx!
Here's to many more years!

Good work, all!
Have you missed our re-introduction of TNT Tag last weekend and would like to try it out? Or you enjoyed the last event and would like more of it? Well, you're invited to come back for more boom booms this upcoming Saturday at 9pm, Eastern time, right at the beginning of Events Night! We'll continue as long as they're a crowd present.
The problems we had last time have been fixed, so the rounds should go smoothly... as smooth as something chaotic like TNT Tag can go, anyway! The game remains available in the lobby at all times should you want to play.
So join us next Saturday for some exploding fun!
Java Edition players, the servers now support 1.16.4. I recommend that you update to the new version when you get the chance; 1.16.3 will also be accepted for a while still.
This game version includes new features to ignore anyone of your choosing in-game. Please note, should you choose to ignore staff for any reason, that will not be a valid excuse for anything. Consequences will be dealt with as before.
Since our Halloween event launched last night, is set to last a week, and you're likely busy with that, there will be no change done in Kenorland today. Keep that anarchy going!
A new challenge might or might not be introduced later in the month, depending of the situation. Feel free to make suggestions if there's something you'd like to see make a return, or have an idea for something new!
While Seasonal is focused on Halloween celebrations, the Hunter's Lodge eyes Thanksgiving! This month's challenges will feature Jack Torrance's Red Rum, with a bonus of pilgrims and turkeys making a mess somewhere. Gather your team from Seasonal and go raid the Lodge to clean that up, the more the better!
Welcome, ghouls, ghosts and other demons to our special Halloween event.
First things first, while this has already concluded, it's now back as a permanent feature: TNT Tag makes its grand return at last! This minigame, available directly from the lobby, challenges you and others to play tag in a designated arena. Some players are It, with a block of TNT on their heads. If you're wearing one, make sure to tag someone else quickly, because when the countdown reaches zero, that TNT blows up and you're eliminated! The game proceeds in rounds until only one player is left standing. Much like Parkour and PvP, this is now available at all times.
Bedrock players, the heads aren't currently visible, making it difficult to find who needs to be tagged. This is expected to get fixed as the compatibility level increases.
Our second event starts now and will last a week. Make your way to Laurasia's Central, at the TransHub, near Grand Central Station. There, you can access the Seasonal server on a special map. Your goal: the Horsemen crave destruction and have recruited YOU to help tear this new location apart! Due to the high targets, you're highly encouraged to work in teams of up to three players.
Here's the content of the guide provided to you in this event, holding more information.
This book contains a list of the Destruction Objectives for the event, as well the Horseman Point values each team can earn for the objectives. Each team member will receive the listed amount for each objective finished at the end of the event!
The ending Horseman Point prizes can be used with various traders around science; a warp to a special gathering of these traders is available via the TransHub in central, for easy viewing!
The Collection Platform is located beneath the spawn hub at the world's center. Label an area with (up to) the 3 team member's usernames, and setup chests to hold each objective. Only items on the designated team's platform will count for prizes.
Several mild Challenge Mobs will be roaming the world, noted by their visible name. Defeat these mobs to claim their equipment for your own! Careful though, what they carry on them cannot be found anywhere else!
Some areas around the world may be protected, these locations all mostly contain prizes to earn via puzzles or in hiding places. If it looks out of place or is a rare item, take a swing at it!
Lost your way? Use the provided Compass on the Lodestone at the spawn hub to always find your way back!
Once the event ends, the event world will be inv synced with the main survival worlds; everything obtained is yours to keep! Make sure you empty your inventory and Ender Chest before your final visit!
10,000 Dirt - 2 Horseman Points
3000 each of andesite, granite, and diorite - 2 Horseman Points
64 Diamonds - 5 Horseman Points
64 Iron Blocks - 2 Horseman Points
64 Coal Blocks - 2 Horseman Points
192 Enderpearls - 2 Horseman Points
192 Bones - 2 Horseman Points
192 String - 2 Horseman Points
3 Creeper heads - 4 Horseman Points
1000 each of Oak, Birch, Jungle, Spruce, Acacia, and Dark Oak logs - 2 Horseman Points
To recap, you want to gather the materials listed above, within the week, and return them close to the spawn point. Once the week is over, scores will be tallied, Horseman Points awarded, and you will be able to bring the gathered goodies back to the regular survival world. Teams up to three are recommended for this.
Of note for people also gathering Horseman Points through other means, new trades have been added at Frank's!
