Welcome to Bedrock players!, Update by Doctacosa

Today, I'm extremely happy to announce the next big step for the Creeper's Lab: Minecraft Bedrock Edition support!

The two main versions of Minecraft, Java and Bedrock, have been aiming for feature parity for some time now. While we're not quite there yet, the two are getting close enough where it's getting realistic for both sets of players to meet each other online at last. This means that players of Bedrock Edition on both Windows 10 and mobile can now jump in with us! Unfortunately, console players can't access community servers due to restrictions imposed by the various manufacturers.

For the first phase of this integration, Bedrock players can now access the lobby, plus the PvP and parkour minigames. If all goes well, the access will be extended soon to the survival servers.

You've got a copy of the game on Windows 10 or mobile, and want to jump in with us? Point your client to play.creeperslab.net (on the default Bedrock port, 19132) and get started today!

To prepare yourself for the full access, you'll want to get whitelisted. If you already have a forum profile, go to edit your Networks and add your Xbox Live Gamertag in the appropriate field. Save, and that's it - you're done! If not, consider registering to access the full set of features!

There are a few important points to note:

  • Everyone's gameplay runs on Java. On mismatches like different recipes, the Java version is used.
  • Bedrock player names are prefixed with a tilde, like ~Doctacosa. Spaces are replaced with underscores.
  • For now, access is restricted to the lobby, PvP and parkour games.
  • Java players can't see the skin of Bedrock players.

Existing players, have fun trying this out. New Bedrock players, welcome! If you notice something not working as you'd expect, please let the staff know!

This is neat! But since my account on Bedrock is separate from Java, does this mean my Bedrock version will need to be added to all my perms?

Yes, unfortunately there's no shortcut for this as they are fully separate accounts.
