This Creativerse Wikia is aiming to grow into an encyclopedia about the content of the game Creativerse.
The articles in here are first of all intended to provide explanations and facts about the gameplay, so that as many questions as possible about Creativerse will be answered that players might have before starting and/or while playing the game.
Like all Wikis in general this Creativerse Wikia too is all about being informational. It is in no way about looking stylish, and it must not be deprived of useful information in order to become "concise", which has already been a problem before. Facts about the game Creativerse that do not concern the gameplay itself might be added later.

Who is in charge of this Wiki? Edit
The developers of Creativerse (Playful) are NOT participating in this Wiki in any way!
So please understand that any comments, suggestions, bug reports or complaints that you place anywhere here in the Creativerse Wikia will not be read nor ever answered by the developers of the game.
This Creativerse Wikia was created by Neonfrog, a Creativerse player, in 2014 until he went inactive around September 2014. In January 2016 Eveaustria, another player of Creativerse, became admin & bureaucrat and added more than 800 articles, continuing with the same simple Wiki design of the very first articles. Other Creativerse players have helped out too, have created articles about new stuff that recent updates had added to the game, have filled in more information and/or have corrected lacking orthography.
This Wikia is public, so everyone can help out and update, correct or add useful information to all articles freely!
Just please note that deleting useful information and/or images that others have contributed is considered vandalism and can lead to a ban of your account within this Wiki, just like adding spam or insults is.
Want to contribute? Edit
Currently large updating processes are still in progress, as can be seen in detail in the article To Do. If you were so kind to take your time to contribute updates, corrections or suitable additions to the Wikia, then thank you very much! If you also wish to re-organize things in here, then you can of course become an admin too.
Please note that you cannot become an admin as long as you have not contributed updates to articles, suitable information, images from the game or additional articles about Creativerse yet. As an admin you should also be willing to undo vandalism (mainly spam) and attempt to reply something helpful to player comments in this Wiki.
Wiki design and re-design Edit
Right now it is not recommended to re-design articles at all, since tempering with outdated articles is a waste of time and the ongoing updates might redo your changes soon. If you should aim to set a "better" standard for the look or structure of articles for this Wiki, then please refer to the article Wiki Design Suggestions.
In general please keep in mind that the Creativerse Wikia is all about information, not about looking stylish.
Since the game Creativerse attracts a young audience and the same types of questions have been asked over and over again, the articles in this Wiki tend to be extensive. This is intended and must not be "cleaned up"! It is not wrong for a Wiki to include "surplus" details to save users the trouble of browsing through many more additional articles to find out about everything there is to know about a topic (because they often simply don't even bother at all and instead prefer to repeat the same questions in the comment section).
The Wiki also tries to preserve some older facts and images as well, because fans might find it interesting, and returning Early Access players will want to be informed about the many changes that the game has underwent since the last time they have played it.
Official FAQs about the game Creativerse as of 2016 by Playful (devs) Edit
Getting Started in Creativerse Edit
Goals Before Your First Night
- Place your Touchstone.
- Build a shelter to protect yourself from hostile creatures.
- Place torches to cast light and prevent enemies from spawning near you.
- Build a processor and start refining materials.
- Craft a Stone Mining Cell (updated) to collect rocks and unlock additional recipes.
- If you find a recipe in the wild, you'll need to activate it to use it. To do this, click and drag it from your inventory over to your character's avatar.
- Many items can only be crafted by collecting materials from a variety of biomes. It's worth venturing out into the world and collecting as much as possible -- you never know when something will come in handy!
How you spend your time in Creativerse is entirely up to you. You can...
- Explore. Climb the highest peaks or plunge the furthest depths of the catacombs -- there's always something interesting just around the corner...
- Gather. Scour the land for resources and valuable minerals.
- Fight. Seek out and battle ferocious monsters and collect the rare items they drop.
- Cultivate. Work the land by planting seeds, cooking food and taming pets.
- Create. Build your dream house. No -- build your dream town. It's up to you!
At the heart of it all is Creativerse's system of crafting recipes, where you'll unlock powerful tools, weapons and building materials that will empower you to take full control of your world.
Official FAQs for Creativerse as of May 26th 2017 by Playful (devs) Edit
What makes Creativerse different from similar sandbox games?
Free to play Edit
Creativerse is and always will be free to play. The game monetizes bonus content, but the core elements of the game are available to all players.
Built in multiplayer Edit
Easily connect and play with anyone — all hosting is managed by Playful. Play privately with friends in your own world or join a public world and meet some new friends. Start your own custom public world and build your own community; further tailor it with admin tools and land claims.
A beautiful, unique sandbox Edit
High quality textures, dynamic lighting/shadows, and animations across a dozen surface biomes create a rich, vibrant world to explore. Subterranean biomes offer unique environmental challenges, a variety of creatures, and increasingly rarer treasure, making the journey below full of twists and turns. A cast of colorful critters, a customizable avatar tool and more than 400 unique blocks and items further enhances the experience.
Next-level tools Edit
A mountain of materials, tools and customization options let you shape not just your own world, but your own stories within that world. Advanced tools include machines and wireless circuitry, blueprints with step-by-step building instructions, block rotation, a world map, simple recipe-based crafting, teleporters, and more.
Built for sharing Edit
Our publishable adventure system puts your creations at the fingertips of millions of players across the globe. Create your own adventures and mini-games with custom checkpoints, dialogues, creature spawning, and block manipulation — tell your story. Bring people directly into your adventures by posting links to them online.
Why did you make Creativerse free to play? Edit
Because we believe it is the best way to get our game into the hands of the widest audience possible. However, we do have to pay the bills somehow and that means micro transactions. We’re still experimenting with monetization and will likely try new things down the road. That said, we’re not interested in aggressive pay-to-play mechanics or making players feel forced to make a purchase. In general we will strive for fairness and for keeping the core game experience free for all players.
What features are coming in the future? Edit
From the beginning, our goal for Creativerse was to make the ultimate sandbox game. During early access we worked on defining and building the core game experience. After our official launch (on May 8, 2017), we’re going to push further into realizing our original vision for the game. In the future, you can expect us to add more creative tools and improve existing ones, more options for customizing your world, creations, and adventures, and more ways to share those creations with the world and enjoy other players’ creations. We’ll also be continually polishing the overall experience and squashing bugs along the way.
Do you have plans to bring the game to other platforms? Edit
We're very interested in bringing Creativerse to other platforms so more of your friends can join you in the game. However, this is still a long term goal.
Are there plans to add an offline mode? Edit
At this time we’re not planning to support offline play. Our focus is on providing effortless multiplayer for everyone with no server setup required.
How can I get my ideas for the game to you? Edit
