You're playing through the science areas, collecting items, storing them carefully, but you have a creeping thought in your mind: "Did I skip something by mistake?" Thanks to StTheo, we now have a solution for all the collectors out there! As you might know, you can visit the Cavern of Science, under the Creeper Citadel, to see the full list of items that can be obtained.

New feature: coordinates display
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 9 January 2021 at 23:00
I'm introducing today a small feature to help you navigate the various worlds: the /pos command! 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 /pos off. This is available for both Java and Bedrock players and is a lighter alternative to the full debug screen, some c ...

Race Away updates
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 3 January 2021 at 23:07
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 bo ...

Race Away! 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 s ...

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 ...

Spawn fixes and how to use beds
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 23 December 2020 at 17:27
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 ...

Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 3 November 2020 at 4:30
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.
