Grindatron balance updates

Posted by Doctacosa on December 13, 2017 at 22:29 [Link]

The December seasonal event, the Grindatron, has been going since the beginning of the month and many people seem to be enjoying it so far. Based on the feedback gathered from the community, I've done the following balance changes:

- The Weakness effect applied when you run out of energy is now lower, giving you a chance of breaking boats and minecarts.
- The energy spent travelling using vehicles (minecarts, boats, horses) has been halved.
- Building now has an energy cost, set to a third of digging.
- Bonus: the current target will be more visible when you join the server.

If you haven't been there yet, now's the time! Remember that there are new targets every 4 hours until the end of the month, giving you plenty of opportunities to score points.

Newsletter registration

Posted by Doctacosa on December 12, 2017 at 23:36 [Link]

I've already posted about this last month, but it's possible that some of you missed it as it was bundled with some other announcements, so here's a reminder!

We're considering launching an e-mail newsletter, likely on a monthly basis, to keep current and past players updated on what's new, what's going on and what's coming up. This would include coverage of ongoing events and contests, a recap on recent happenings, exclusive content, giveaways and more. It could be the best way to avoid missing on some fun!

Interested? Please submit your e-mail address today so you won't miss out of the first communication when it happens!

Christmas cards, 2017 edition!

Posted by Doctacosa on December 5, 2017 at 23:31 [Link]

Many of you have already asked, and it's now time: the Christmas cards are back!!




For those new to this, every year I send out a holidays card in the mail directly to you, featuring a scene from the server, and its free! All you need to do is submit your physical mailing address, wait, and you'll get one around the holidays!

You have two ways to claim yours: in Laurasia, visit the Seasonal Park (in Central, North, using the Residential Line) and find the giant mailbox represented above. Get a book, write your name and address, submit it, and you're done! Alternatively, if you don't want to go in-game, you can use this special page tied to the forums.

I clear the list of submitted addresses every year, so if you want one, please submit your address anew - I didn't keep it! I also have limited quantities of the cards from 2014 to 2016 still available. If you want one because you don't have it or lost your copy, don't hesitate to specify a year when you put your address in.

Event: the GRINDATRON!

Posted by Doctacosa on December 3, 2017 at 21:08 [Link]

It's time for December's seasonal event! This time, your persistence, your might, your will to conquer will be tested to their limits in...

THE GRINDATRON!




The challenges

The Grindatron offers you a brand new world, where specific targets must be reached. These consist of a specific block or item that must be found or acquired somehow, and brought back to the enderchest standing at the middle of the world, at coordinates 0,0. One or multiple copies of the same item might be required, this'll be displayed when you login as well as the beginning of each time period. If you need a reminder of the current target, you can enter /target at any time.

When you're ready, drop the item(s) that are part of the current target in the enderchest, in a single stack. If you're correct, the items will disappear and you'll get a confirmation. Be careful: any and all objects placed in the enderchest at that time will be removed, including those that are not related to the current target!


The interface

Here's a look at what your average screen will look like:




Top: energy remaining and progression of the current cycle
Right: score of all connected players
Middle bottom: the current target


The cycles

Each day is separated in blocks of four hours; each of these blocks of time is a cycle. A different target will be made available by cycle, that is every four hours.

To give you a challenge and balance out the play time of each player, an energy concept is introduced. Always visible at the top of your screen, the energy level will decrease as you make actions. Moving and mining will be two especially draining activities, while any death carries a heavy penalty. Once you're out of energy, your overall power will decrease: you will no longer be able to break most blocks, your movements will be slow, and your attacks will be weaker. Don't get caught by surprise, and keep an eye on that gauge! Your energy gets fully refilled at the end of every cycle, so that you can be ready for the next challenge.

You can earn a connection bonus item for each consecutive day that you visit the Grindatron. Visiting multiple days in a row will give you better bonuses! For the sake of this game mode, a "day" is defined as a 24 hours period according to Eastern Time. For example, you could connect at 23:55 on a given day, disconnect, come back 10 minutes later at 00:05, and that would could as two consecutive daily visits. Likewise, these two times are on different cycles as they're based on midnight.


The location

A new world with a separate inventory has been generated for this. You'll find this new place right in the lobby, where UHC would usually sit, as it'll replace the UHC world for the month of December. Enderchests are disabled as these are used to validate the targets; the rest of the gameplay matches what you're used to in the survival worlds.


The reward

Each successfully completed target over the duration of the month will give you a Merit Point! The score that you can see get to your name in-game corresponds to what you've earned so far, so come back often to score more!


The duration

This begins NOW and will run until the end of December at least; it might get extended by a few days up to the end of the holidays, depending of the interest.


Note that, since this is a very new concept for us, there will likely be adjustments over the month. Keep an eye on this space for any further information!

Enjoy!

New image gallery, plus a nomination!

Posted by Doctacosa on November 21, 2017 at 22:43 [Link]

Some of you are already familiar with the renders that I've been generating of various locations around the servers. At the same time, you might not want to go through 9 pages of forum discussion just to find a specific image that you liked.

To make these, and more, readily available, I'm launching tonight a new images gallery. You can easily browse everything being made available so far, and any new additions will appear over there as well. There's a handy download button under each image, so you can grab them for your own use, set them as wallpapers or whatever you wish. Please go check it out!

A new Gallery option has been added to the main navigation menu of the website to link to this.

Additionally, I'm happy to announce that xray275 has been granted the player rank of Media! He's graciously offered to create new visuals to accompany news posts, events, or for promoting the Creeper's Lab. He's already created four scenes that you can view in his new gallery.

Welcome aboard, xray!

2 Years in Miranda

Posted by Masterlink on November 14, 2017 at 14:38 [Link]

Salutations Netizens of Miranda,

Tomorrow, November 15th marks yet another yearly anniversary for Miranda. Two years have gone by, so I think it's time to get some more community interactive things going.

I'm calling for contractors to build attractions, games, and PvP arenas in Miranda! We need something to get everyone together and interacting with each other. As a bit of celebration for this anniversary and to entice players to get building: Starting tomorrow, the 15th, the flight shrine at spawn will be ENABLED until the end of November. For new players as a reminder, the flight shrine is stationed at the northwest of spawn and is normally active during Contractor's Evening on Wednesdays at 6PM EST. This grants flight until you disconnect or the end of the night.

Players that decide to build during this time and inform me of their intended build/function, will also gain the Contractor rank, and with it access to Ouroboros, the creative planning server. This will help those who choose to plan out their build better without requiring single player, etc. After choosing your destination and beginning your build, contact Unknown_Entity for nether connections.

I will also be taking submissions for the start of the overworld rail system, similar to what you've seen in Laurasia and Rodinia. You can build smaller mockups in Ouroboros and present your ideas as well. Whoever is chosen to build the main rail station, upon completion, will be rewarded a game or DLC on Steam up to $10. Teams are allowed as well, and thusly will be awarded the same to each builder. You will only be required to design and build the main building, providing sufficient endpoints, and the possibility to be expanded. You are not required to run any actual rails.

This may seem like a cop-out to get others to do the work, but I want to involve the community. So instead of designing and building it myself, I want the builds to come from the players. Alongside the request for arenas, games, and attractions, I ask players build around spawn, or make other cities. Shape the world as you all see fit.

There's plenty of areas to spread out and develop the world, so please take this opportunity to get your creativeness going and build something spectacular.

Sixth anniversary!

Posted by Doctacosa on November 11, 2017 at 19:45 [Link]

Remember, remember, the 11th of November, for this happens to be the sixth anniversary of the Creeper's Lab!

The last year has once again been full of changes and surprises, especially as we kicked off with a week of celebrations for the fifth anniversary; I know many of you enjoyed this. Most notably, the following happened in the past twelve months:

- Takao, a modded Pixelmon server, was launched for all Pokémon trainers. It was later retired after a takedown action against the mod itself.
- New contests, like the Ice Castles, boats and the long-lasting Lemuria one.
- An overworld rail network redesign for improved travel, with some lines now going directly through portals.
- Major chat upgrades, including the launch of our popular Discord server.
- The introduction of the Race Away challenge and the madness that followed.

I have plenty of ideas in mind on what to do still, and I hope you'll all be here with us to see that come to fruition. I'd like to extend my special thanks to the Patreon backers, who are helping to make some of these changes possible! In exchange, they've been given access to some exclusive features like the ability to set their own custom titles in-game!

Thanks for being here, no matter if you joined last week, last year, or at the very beginning!




We're considering launching an e-mail newsletter, likely on a monthly basis, to keep current and past players updated on what's new, what's going on and what's coming up. This would include coverage of ongoing events and contests, a recap on recent happenings, exclusive content, giveaways and more. It could be the best way to avoid missing on some fun!

Interested? Please submit your e-mail address today so you won't miss out of the first communication when it happens!




To wrap this up, I've generated a new render of Central as it appeared at the beginning of this month. Put it side-to-side with a view of February 2012, and you can see the progress that has been made! The bottom picture is an overlay of the two, highlighting how much has changed in the meantime.

Event: Crawling back to the Spider Dome!

Posted by Doctacosa on November 10, 2017 at 0:01 [Link]

Hear ye, hear ye!

All combatants, young and old, men and women, novice or experimented, are summoned to the Spider Dome! A recent outbreak of monsters has been discovered there, and we need all capable hands to repel these foes before they can threaten the citizens!

The battles will begin this Saturday, at 10pm Eastern time. Bring yourself, your friends, your weapons and armor, and prove to everyone in a show of glory that you are the best at what you do!

---

For those not in the know, the Spider Dome is a battle location where waves of mobs are spawned in and you fight them... or die trying! It's a fun way to see some unusual mob attack patterns, and you get to keep any item drops that you can secure! Things usually have a light tone, and being good at fighting isn't a requirement at all! You're invited to come around to participate or just watch!

Pumpkin potions event results!

Posted by Doctacosa on November 1, 2017 at 0:43 [Link]

Wizards and witches have worked around the clock near their prized cauldrons to brew, gather and hand over large amounts of mystical bottles. Only four people decided to engage in the contest, but the amount of bottles generated will be able to keep a alchemist's lab fully stocked for a long time!

Here are the final scores and the winning prizes!

First place: axe_y with 46,080 points - 30 Merit Points + Pumpkin Carver
Second place: Coneva with 36,405 points - 20 Merit Points + Pumpkin Splitter
Third place: GingeKoda with 20,980 points - 10 Merit Points + Pumpkin Spoon
Honorable mention: Doctacosa with 205 points - Pumpkin Candle

Congrats to all winners, and see you all at the next event!

Halloween updates!

Posted by Doctacosa on October 31, 2017 at 21:35 [Link]

Happy Halloween, everyone! Enjoy your treats... or your tricks!




Out of sequence to line up with this day, I've posted the latest showcase video on YouTube, which is fittingly about Horseman's Hollow. Give it a watch when you have the chance!

If you haven't been keeping up to date with the showcase series, you can find the entire series in this playlist. A new one is usually posted every Saturday, at the start of Events Night.




As several builders have been active in the past few days, Sora has decided to extend the Lemuria building contest until this Friday, at the end of the day. That gives you a bit more time to polish your constructs or quickly add one or two new entries. Now, get moving!
