Contest: going to spaaaaace!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on September 21, 2014 at 16:02 [Link]

It's that time again: a building contest!

Leave behind cities, caves, rails, mountains, even creepers: this time, we're going to SPACE! We're breaking away from the standard medieval / pseudo-modern style of Minecraft to focus on the modern or future, realistic or with a sci-fi twist.

What you decide to build is up to you, although it obviously has to be space-themed. Will you do a spaceship? A space station? An asteroid? Even a mini-planet? That's up to you to decide!





* RULES *

The contest entries must stay within the confines of a single, 50x50 lot. You own the entire height of said lot, and can use the reference bedrock blocks to find their exact borders. This time around, you can not build on the borders themselves. What use you make of the space available is up to you: you do NOT need to fill it up. Outer space consists of a lot of emptiness, and so can your entry. Besides, several potential designs will need a lot of length, but possibly much less depth. The walkways are situated on a single level, but space isn't set on a flat plane: you can build higher or lower!

You are free to work in teams should you desire. In that case, you can either work together on the same lot or each take adjacent lots and merge them together. You can also build more than one entry if you feel like it, although only one will be judged for the contest. If you build on more than one location, please clearly mark which one is your entry.

Due to the possibly larger building scale involved, you have FOUR WEEKS to complete your entry. The contest begins now and ends on October 18th at 23:59, Eastern time.

Pick a lot, place your name on it, and start building! Be creative!


* PRIZES *

All good contests need fitting prizes. Here is what is available this time around!

First place: $20 Amazon.com giftcard or $20 US bill (your choice)
Second place: horse owner and breeder kit
Third place: one super bow + stack of arrows, courtesy of Squid's Cove
Random person: surprise participation prize!

The judging criterias will be how well the theme was respected (space setting), the originality of your idea, and the proper use of the various materials. Strict penalties will apply if your construction spills outside of your lot.


* BUILDING DETAILS *

Due to the special nature of this theme, a new world permanently set to night time is now available. To get the proper view in this world, Amasia, it is highly recommended that you turn off the display of clouds. You can reach this new place from Central's TransHub, which will lead you directly to the site of the contest.


Some leaf platforms have been added to make your life easier while building, but they will be removed after the deadline. Since those were temporarily spawned in, please don't keep them or incorporate them in your builds. You can ask me or any op to remove them if unwanted, or if you're done. The bedrock corners will be removed at the same time. The dirt pathways are also temporary and in the process of being replaced with something more appropriate for the setting.

To save yourself from falling into the void of space and losing all your items, keepInventory is permanently set to true: dying for any reason will not cause you to lose your items!

If someone who is NOT planning to participate is interested in being a judge, please contact me before the end of the contest.

Good luck!

Withers Pleasure Lounge results

Posted by Dr. Cossack on September 21, 2014 at 1:10 [Link]

Many brave fighters stepped up for last Saturday's fights! 13 people decided to face Withers on one-on-one battles while the crowd cheered them on. Not everyone was set to win, however...

Among the participants, DaBestGamer_01, DrCossack and UnknownEntity634 used their skills and left the arena victorious, each holding a precious Nether Star. On the other hand, ADeadlyFish, Andromedea1, FigsNewton, Katame, Mikey_el16, MagicMarker101, nikkehammerfist, Sphenicus, starfyredragon and tranxalive fought bravely but fell prey to the monsters. They still scored a consolation prize of 5 iron blocks. Once this carnage was over, many stayed for a mix of PvP and rounds of monster fighting.

The Wither Lounge has now been added as a permanent part of the End of Time network, making it available for later Events Nights!

Once again, thanks to everyone for participating, and to Skreelink for creating and running these events!

Microsoft purchases Mojang, and we keep on going!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on September 15, 2014 at 18:10 [Link]

The rumor that's been growing and growing in the past several days turned out to be true: Microsoft is purchasing Mojang, makers of Minecraft, for $USD 2,500,000,000. Official statements: Mojang, Notch (mirror), Microsoft, press release.

The Minecraft development team, including Jeb, is still there. Only Notch, Carl and Jakob (co-founders and company heads) have left, so this won't have any impact on the game on the short term. Now, of course, what does this mean for the game and the Creeper's Lab?

First and foremost, the MC team is still there. They'll keep on working on new game versions. Microsoft representatives have said that they intend to keep the game available (and continue to work) for other platforms as well, and I see no reason to believe otherwise: a large potion of the Minecraft profits come for the console and mobile versions.

Of course, down the line, things will change in a way or another. There have been other transitions before, many of them causing apprehension:
- Mojang's creation as a business ("Notch is going corporate!")
- Jeb taking over as lead developer ("Will he do the right thing?")
- The release of Minecraft 1.0 ("Will the updates soon stop?")
- Notch stepping away from the game ("We're doomed!")
- Microsoft purchasing Mojang (cue current comments)

My point is, things have been (mostly) fine overall, and I believe that this latest step will follow in the same way once the dust has settled.

I'm relatively hopeful that this will help the game grow even more over time. Microsoft can add support for even more platforms, ensure that the game remains compatible with future Windows versions (one of the largest markets), and their games division has traditionally been good at ensuring long-term support. At worst, Microsoft will let the game stagnate and the current versions will remain available. The community itself is so active, and has pushed the game in so many directions, that Minecraft will never really die.

As for the Creeper's Lab? We're here, the server is running, an update to 1.8 will happen when ready, I have plans for growth and we'll see from there, as usual. I'm not planning any changes in light of these news, and I'm looking forward to more years of mining and crafting! :-) Speaking of the 1.8 update, those looking for more information on that might want to check my recent forum post.

And hey, some people are having fun with this situation.

Long live Minecraft!

Event: Withers Pleasure Lounge

Posted by Dr. Cossack on September 10, 2014 at 23:57 [Link]

There are two kinds of people: those who fear for their lives, and those who rise to the challenges thrown their way. If you are part of the latter group, Skreelink is back with more Wither madness. The goal, this time: a 1 vs 1 battle, player vs wither, in a new arena. No matter who wins, you get a prize!

This event will happen next week, September the 20th, on Events Night. Make sure that you find your way to the arena before 10pm, Eastern Time! A direct access will be available from the End of Time, in the PvP & Battles category.

The full visitor's guide and write-up follow!

---

{Wither's Pleasure Lounge}
{Visitor's guide and invitation Brochure}


Salutations Miners,

Now, it seems that sometimes... During that hard mining and fending off monsters... That a miner could get tired of it all and need some relaxation. Maybe after a particularly rough day, you come home to be greeted by an empty house, the furnace empty so you have to eat your fish cold, sushi-style without the fixings. Just once, maybe it'd be nice to spend an evening with someone who can appreciate you for all the work you do?

Well, then today you might be pleasantly surprised! Why you ask?

In the Grand Opening of the Wither's Pleasure Lounge, we're giving away free one-night passes to spend with some of the best, most talented escorts we have to offer! So drop the pickaxe and shovel, take the nearest rail out to the balmy soulsand beaches of The Nether and swing by for a night of bliss.

The Lounge can be found at the corner of love and desire, parked in the middle of the famed Lurking Skree Nether Fortress. Take the Eastern Line from Nether Central for three stations, a swing by the Room of Devine Transportation and find the proper rail from there. Optionally, take the nearest TARDIS or Time Gate, our Experts are always available to help you along the way, give us a ring!

So, what's the catch you ask? There is none! Everyone that shows gets the best night we can offer, but first come first serve, get here quick.

When you arrive, your name goes in the queue and seated until you are called. Afterwards, you will be engrossed in a night of dancing, feasting, and a chance for quality time with the most talented Lady Withers we have, unless you prefer the manly Stud Withers, we cater to both. Just you and her, going rounds and having the night of your life, don't imagine it, drop by and EXPERIENCE the fun!

Now, our facility does have some rules (Although not many, you naughty miners ;) )

1: Please respect the privacy of the other patrons, no need to ruin their night of fun. (No naysaying, they don't know the glass is two-way, shh)
2: It's Mano-A-Mano, just you and the professional you are engaging with.
3: Clothing optional, want just simple iron? Fancy expensive gold and diamonds? ...Maybe you're into a little leather? Your choice! Can't say your partner will be wearing much though... ;)
4: Mmm 'toys' We'll leave that up to you as well, anything you think you might need to make the night the best it can be.
5: Friends? Leave 'em at home, although if you DO choose to bring someone, it's between you two who gets the rewards of the night.
6: Doors. Yep, they're locked from the outside! We want to make sure you get the privacy you deserve so no ins or outs after you're served.

What do you get out of this? Well, lemme just do a little checking of our assets...

1: Your partner, if you do your job and make them happy as well (I know they work here, but they deserve it right?) might reward you, keep this as a momento of your night!

2: Feeling a bit unsatisfied? We're sorry your night didn't go as expected, we try our best but things happen.. Take five blocks of the finest iron and our sincerest appology.

Afterwards, the floor will be open to all visitors to release their frustrations out on each other! Patrons will be expected to clean up their messes, however.


The shorter version:

I've built a new PvP arena (The Wither's Pleasure Lounge, or Wither Lounge), and in celebration I am giving opening night visitors a one-on-one chance at a wither. There are no rules, bring what you think you'll need. You can request help from a friend, and if they accept, they forfeit their chance at one-on-one and it's between you two who gets the nether star. All of the withers are legit, so they count for the achievement and you keep the spoils. I'm just saving you the hours of laboring to collect skulls.

You only get one shot at it, so if you fail, you get the consolation prize for trying of five iron blocks.

After everyone has had a go at a wither, the arena will be opened for PvP fights, the twist being that mob-spawns ARE allowed in the arena. Adds a little danger, player or pigman? Careful who you poke! Although I do NOT expect many things to spawn, as the caged in arena limits spawn-area size around the player (as I recall 16 block radius). As such, I'm going to allow DrCossack to run SpiderDome-ish spawns and stuff WHILE the players PvP. So keep your eyes peeled on players AND mobs.

Do note this was built in my nether fortress, and as such I implore you not to try to wander around and tear anything down, such as quartz and glowstone, without my permission.

If you need help getting there, finding your way to the arena, or getting home, simply ask. I will be glad to guide you through the place, albeit it's very simple.

Upcoming 1.8 release, server status

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 31, 2014 at 15:25 [Link]

It's been a while since I've made a news post adressing the status of the server. Since I'm back in action, now seems like a good time!


Server updated to 1.7.10

The server has been updated today to Minecraft 1.7.10. This should eliminate the annoying block lag that some of you have been suffering from in the past few weeks, along with player skins being lost ("I'm Steve!") when you died or moved through portals. Some other bug fixes are included as well. Please let me know if any other issues show up.


1.8 is being released soon

Mojang currently plans to release version 1.8 on September 2. As usual, the server will take some time to be ready for an upgrade, so please stay with us on 1.7.10 in the meantime!

To do that, in the game's launcher, click the "Edit Profile" button then make sure that the "Use version" field is set to "release 1.7.10" (or any version between 1.7.6 and 1.7.10). Hit the save button, and you'll be good!


Bukkit troubles

Some of you have heard of troubles related to the Bukkit project, which is the base of the server software that we currently use. The current situation will leave us with a working 1.8 version, so the upcoming update will happen as usual. The path beyond that is currently unclear, but that's for me to worry about. Just keep on playing and having fun, and I'll ensure that things keep on working in the future!


Second server status

Still in the planning stages is a second server for the Creeper's Lab, in Survival mode (sorry, Creative fans!), using mods. While this has been taking more time than expected, several steps related to this have been taking in the past months, including the new website layout and some plugin updates. I don't want to rush the process, as I want to take the time to do it right. I've got several good ideas that I'm looking to implement. More details will be posted once things are set in stone!


More coming later

Always. :-) Thanks for playing with us!

Wither Ball results!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 30, 2014 at 23:47 [Link]

The increased challenge of the Wither Ball got the best of our participants: no one survived the onslaught! As this was a last-man standing competition, we got the following winners:

First place: SerenityBlack
Second place: tranxalive
Third place: BossMasterLink


After everyone died, the doors were reopened and everyone got to rush in until all five withers were truly dead and gone. Regular Spider Dome activities then followed!

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this event a success, and of course to Skreelink for running it!

Event: Wither Ball!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 29, 2014 at 13:48 [Link]

Carnage! Mayhem! Prizes! This all sounds good, right?

Skreelink has decided to ready up a sequel to last month's Wither Waltz. Once again, the basic goal is to enter a fight with multiple contestants and withers, and try to leave victorious. Higher challenge, more valuable prizes, and everyone who enters gets to keep something!

This will happen this Saturday, during Events Night. The doors will be locked at 10pm Eastern Time, so be sure to get to the Spider Dome beforehand. If too few participants show up, the event will be postponed. Here are the full details!

---

Hello and welcome mortals!

You've been invited to a Wither's Ball... Now some of you were around during the waltz, now's the time for some real fun.

As you know, the Waltz involved everyone being locked in the Spider Dome with two withers, this event will be similar but with a couple of changed things, since it seemed to go a bit fast last time.

Rules:

1: Melee weapons will be provided, leave your smite swords at home, you have friends.
2: Armor will be provided, some players can't afford shiny Protection IV diamond armors.

The above two are to keep things even between players.

3: Personal bows ARE allowed, they'll only save you 'til the withers drop the floor anyway.
4: Potions ARE ALLOWED this time. You provide your own.
5: Please do not attempt to harm other players.
6: If you die, you cannot return to the arena, please head up to the observation deck.
7: No hiding in corners to let others die, jump in there and fight.
8: You must die, Cthulhu demands it.

Now that wasn't so hard, was it? Now lets talk about some prizes~

1st place: Same as last time, Nether star + iron for pyramid NEW? + diamond block
2nd place: A regular chest full of iron blocks
3rd place: 2 emerald blocks
Participation: Keeping provided special weapon and armor

Winner can decide on trading with second place if they desire the iron more.

This is run as a last-man-standing, and as such, if all the withers are killed with survivors, the Spider Dome will remained locked and regular insanity provided by DrCossack will ensue until everyone is murdered lovingly to dictate rank, no tying for second place this time!

Since there is a short notice for this event, although playes have been jittery since the first one for another, I'm sure word of mouth will get participants quickly!

HOWEVER! In the event that low participation happens, the event will be postponed to allow longer exposure in the news thread... but you guys want carnage now, don't you? So get out there and tell all your MC buddies about it and extend the special invitation to the Wither Ball!

Botanical Garden Contest results!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 7, 2014 at 22:54 [Link]

19 players entered the botanical garden contest, 3 have come out with a victory and prizes! Our two judges, Anonymous_SoFar and Dr. Cossack, have visited the gardens and given a note from 0 to 10 to each entry based on how well the botanical garden theme was followed and the overall quality of the work. Without further wait...

THE RESULTS!

First place: MagicMarker101 - enchanted diamond sword for Wither kills
Second place: HimochiKouen and MediaKlepto - potions geared toward PvP + Dr. Cossack head
Third place: cmzangetsu93 - two enderchests!

The full list of entries, along with comments from the two judges, can be found on the results page! Some of you might notice that the scores averages tend to be lower this time around. Part of that is explained by the fact that the judges felt that many entries, while interesting, didn't fit very well with the botanical garden theme. Many would be more appropriate for a city park, most likely!


I'd like to thank everyone who entered! This was a first attempt at smaller scale contests, with smaller building lots and prizes, yet the community has jumped at the opportunity. With that much interest, you can look forward to more contests in the future!

Survey: our use of social media networks

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 3, 2014 at 23:37 [Link]

The Creeper's Lab is available on various social networks. We're currently on
Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitch, Twitter and YouTube. Those various channels are all used differently. Some keep the members aware of ongoing server news, others share screenshots and stories, while a few have a focus on recruiting new players by making them aware that we exist.

Another option to keep in touch is through our forums. The community uses it to share news, discus ongoing server changes, offer suggestions, ask questions, and more. It's also a casual place to talk about everything and nothing, even things unrelated to Minecraft.

To help me understand what you expect out of social media and the forums, I've put together a short, 10 questions survey. This will only take you a minute or two to answer, but will give me a better idea of what you want and how we can make the best possible use of each channel.

Take the survey now!

If you have additional points to make that aren't covered in the survey, you can either reply to this news post or contact me directly.

Thank you for answering!

Wither Waltz results!

Posted by Dr. Cossack on August 3, 2014 at 1:50 [Link]

The name Wither is enough to send a chill down the spine of many players, yet several brave warriors came in tonight to fight TWO of these at the same time! The team worked quickly, felling the two withers in a few short minutes and only had three casualties!

2FortToothKickin, DrCossack, HimochiKouen, iKatze, nikkehammerfist, starfyredragon and UnknownEntity634 all survived and won the second place prize: a diamond block! frogdreck1 managed to land the killing blow, earning the first place prize: a Nether Star and enough iron blocks for a fully powered beacon pyramid. Congrats, everyone!

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this event a success, and thanks to Skreelink for running it!
