Basic Information[edit | edit source]

The Haunted Gravestone is a decorative item the size of one block that can be inscribed with glowing white letters (by default, can be colored though as on any other Sign).

This stony sign board with grass stalks around the bottom will accept up to 35 characters, but can also display Creativerse icons (sprites) and a few smileys. It cannot be wired.

Even though the letters on this gravestone glow in the dark, this glow does not illuminate the surrounding and such won't hinder Creatures or Treasure Chests from spawning nearby.

This sign was implemented to Creativerse with the "Haunted Nights" update R35 on October 13th 2016 for the seasonal Halloween event 2016 that lasted until November 11th 2016.

It returned for the first Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign that lasted from October 18th 2017 to November 15th 2017, and again for the second Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign from October 24th 2018 until November 14th 2018.

How to obtain[edit | edit source]

Haunted Gravestones can only be obtained during Halloween event-times that last for ca. one month around Halloween from October to November. The according rare crafting recipe and also already crafted Haunted Gravestones can be traded from Pumpkirus that only spawn during the seasonal Halloween event during the night.

Haunted Gravestones cannot be found in any randomly spawning common Treasure Chests and cannot be obtained from any Creatures.

During the second Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign that started on October 24th 2018 and ended on November 14th 2018, 1 already crafted Haunted Gravestone each could be bought for 15 Pumpkiru Candy from randomly spawning Pumpkirus (NPCs) at night on the surface of any Creativerse game world.

Haunted Gravestones can be crafted in the crafting menu too (to be opened by pressing "q" as the default key), but only after the according rare crafting Recipe for these Halloween-themed decorative signs has been obtained and then learnt - usually by buying it from any of the Pumpkirus during the Halloween event month for 100 Pumpkiru Candy.

Around Halloween, Pumpkirus - The Great Pumpkirus and (more rarely) Pumpkiru Jr.s - will spawn here and there on the surface of Creativerse game worlds within a certain proximity around player characters. More of them will spawn when players travel across the landscape. A compass symbol looking like a pumpkin indicates whenever one or more Pumpkirus are not far away; and the symbol will get larger when the Pumpkiru gets closer.

You can "activate" any of the Pumpkirus by clicking your right mouse button while pointing your cursor at these NPCs. Both Pumpkirus will then "sell" crafted Haunted Gravestones to you if you select their icons in the "Decorative sign" TAB in their trading window (click on the scroll icon at the top of the window).

Pumpkiru Candy can be obtained by fighting Ghost Creatures during Halloween event-times and by successfully completing Idol Events. These events can be initiated by placing Haunted Idols (or Infused Haunted Idols or Unleashed Haunted Idols) into the game world.

Haunted Idols can be obtained from daily Login Chests and Ghost Creatures during Halloween event-times. Infused Haunted Idols are then obtainable as a reward for successfully completing tier 1 Idol Events initiated by common Haunted Idols. Unleashed Haunted Idols in return are obtainable as a reward for successfully completing tier 2 Idol Events initiated by Infused Haunted Idols.

While Haunted Idols are no longer a content of daily login reward chests outside the Halloween event-month, all Idols that were obtained during that time and Idols are obtained throughout the rest of the year will initiate Idol Events like usual.

Additionally, Idols of all kinds can be bought as part of block kits for Blueprints made by players that can be found in the Creativerse Steam signs&actualsort=mostrecent&p=1 workshop.

Any Pumpkiru Candy that can be collected from the Ghost Loot Bags and Haunted Ghost Treasure reward chests can then only be traded for Halloween-themed decorative signs, seasonal Costumes and rare seasonal Recipes from the Pumpkirus that will usually only spawn during the Halloween event Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign though.

If you have not participated in the Halloween event, you can ask players who have learnt the Recipe for these Halloween-themed decorative signs to come craft them for you on your game world after supplying them with the necessary crafting ingredients. You cannot obtain seasonal rare Recipes like this Halloween specific one through Adventures.

The option to buy these seasonal decorative signs and/or their rare crafting Recipe ingame will most likely return around Halloween 2019.

Since Haunted Gravestones are placeable, they can alternatively be bought as part of building kits for any customizable Blueprint with Coins, which in return are purchasable for real money via Steam Wallet in the ingame Store. You can use Blueprints that you have captured yourself with Capture Blocks, as well as Blueprints that were made by other players and that you have subscribed to in the Steam Creativerse workshop, or Blueprints that you have customized with Haunted Gravestones.

To buy a building kit, either select the according Blueprint or activate a cornerstone that has been placed into the game world (and has optionally been customized). Check the content of the block kit first by clicking on the description "Built with xxx Blocks" before you'll click on the green price tag button below "Get kit and build now".

How to unlock the crafting recipe[edit | edit source]

As said, the rare crafting Recipe for this decorative sign can be traded from any of the Pumpkirus that will only spawn during Halloween event-times (or perhaps additional occasions if Playful sees fit and will announce so on social media and on the official forums).

Pumpkirus will sell the rare Recipe for Haunted Gravestones to you for 100 Pumpkiru Candy if you select the Recipe page that can be found in the "Recipes" TAB of the trading window (click on the scroll icon at the top of the window).

You can buy more than one Recipe page for Haunted Gravestones, but you will only need and be able to learn the rare Recipe once in order to add it to your Crafting Menu permanently for all game worlds. All surplus Recipe pages can be stored and later on given to other players for them to learn (the Recipe page will disappear when learning it).

In order to permanently add the rare crafting recipe to your crafting menu after you've found it, this recipe has to be learnt by right-clicking on it in your inventory/bag or dragging it with the left mouse-button over your player character model on the right side of the inventory.

The recipe will then stay be available in your crafting menu on all Creativerse game worlds like all other rare crafting Recipes, even on worlds where the "Pro" option "world bound recipes" ("fresh start") is enabled, while you could not transfer decorative signs like Recipe pages to other game worlds.

You can still obtain the rare Recipe for Haunted Gravestones from fellow Creativerse players if they have any surplus Haunted Gravestones Recipe pages stored on their game world and are willing to give it to you (the Recipe will be consumed when learning it).

How to craft[edit | edit source]

To craft 1 Haunted Gravestone in your Crafting Menu (default key "Q") after obtaining and learning the according rare Recipe, you'll need:

How to use[edit | edit source]

In order to use Haunted Gravestones, they need to be placed into the game world. Then, the Haunted Gravestones can be inscribed by interacting with them ("f" as the default key or right-click). Since these Signs are not wirable, no Wiring Tool is required in order to inscribe them, different from Arc Signs that can display 10K characters.

Haunted Gravestones can be fully rotated into all directions by pressing and holding R and then pointing the mouse cursor at the Obelisk and moving the mouse while holding the left mouse button.

The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by tapping "r" while looking at an already rotated object or block; then all items of the same stack in the selected quickslot will automatically be facing the same direction when being placed.

These inscribable objects can be picked up without requiring a Power Cell (except on game worlds and/or player claims or within Adventures where your permission ranking is too low for that).

Inscribing Haunted Gravestones[edit | edit source]

Right-click on a Haunted Gravestone in the game world or activate it by typing "f" (as the default key) in order to write a note or message (maximum length 35 characters).

Please note that the width on these stony Signs is rather narrow, and the bottom line (or image) might be cut off when being half-hidden behind the grass that is attached to the bottom of the Gravestone.

After clicking the "Accept"-button, this message will then be displayed in ALL capital letters in white color by default (which can be changed with a command though). Non-transparent letters are usually well visible in the dark with a bright glow.

In order to select hex color codes, you can use websites like https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp to choose custom colors and copy their hex codes from the top of the page into your Haunted Gravestone ingame.

In principle, you can use most commands of rich text (like explained here: http://digitalnativestudios.com/textmeshpro/docs/rich-text/ ), but not all of them.

Compatible commands will not influence the character limit (35 characters max. for common signs), but incompatible commands might extend the character limit.

For best results, it's recommended to write any line of commands into a text file or text field outgame, copy it (with Strg-C) and paste it into the game sign (with Strg-V).

You cannot use Alt-codes on Haunted Gravestones.

Please note that especially the fonts are still a work in progress and can be prone to future changes. Other rich text commands might change too, and more sprites are regularly added to the game.

How to display ingame icons and emoticons[edit | edit source]

As for ingame icons; please refer to the article Arc Sign for images of all currently available sprites and their index IDs. They can be added by using the command <sprite="icons_00" index=[any number 0 to 977]> and <sprite="icons_01" index=[any number from 0 to 325]>. 325 is just the current maximum sprite number as of June 15th 2019. More ingame sprites are usually added to the game with each patch.

You can alternatively enter the ingame names/variables of icons instead of their index numbers if you like. You can search for these variables by icon selection in Entuland's Sprite Creator: http://entuland.com/creatisprites/.

The default size of sprites will usually be really small on this Sign though, so you'll have to add a <size=x.xx> command to enlarge the size.

This, however, will displace the sprites downwards, so you'll also need to add a <voffset=x.xx> command to push the image up. (Negative numbers will push the image down.)

For example: <voffset=2.0><size=5><sprite="icons_00" index=102> will display the image of three Holiday Giftboxes in a properly visible size and alignment on Haunted Gravestones.

Please note that <offset> and <zoffset> cannot be used on small signs like Haunted Gravestones, but only on Arc Signs, the same as with the {PlayerName} command.

Permission Settings[edit | edit source]

You can change the Permission settings for each Sign by clicking on the padlock icon that can be accessed in the top right corner over the window that opens when you activate the Sign.

By that you can define individual authorizations to control who will be allowed to access this Sign and to change its message.

Available world permission-settings are: "just me", "world owner/admins", "world mods", "builders" or "everyone".

On player claims the available settings are "just me", "claim admins", "claim interact only", "claim builders" and "everyone".

Since update R40 on March 29th 2017, all object permissions are now set to "builders" (and "claim builders" when on claims) by default when being placed. So only players with builder rights/permission rank either on your game-world or on your claim (claim permission ranks override world permission ranks) can access your Signs.

But you can set them to "just me" if you want to, so they will only be accessible (and removable) by you and players with the same or higher ranks than you on the respective player claim or game world.

If your Haunted Gravestones are set to "visitor", everyone can access them and can even take them away.

History[edit | edit source]

In 2016, Haunted Gravestones could be obtained from Ghost Pigsies, Ghost Leafies, Ghost Rocksters, Ghost Chizzards or Ghost Mirus during Halloween event times when killing them.

These non-aggressive Ghost Creatures only spawn in complete darkness at (ingame)night (starting a little later than 10:43 PM) during seasonal events like Haunted Nights or Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign and flee from player characters without defending themselves. All Ghosts except for Ghost Mirus spawn on the surface of any Creativerse game world, while Ghost Mirus make rare appearances in caves, mainly on the Stalactite layer.

All Ghost Creatures can be spawned on a Mob Spawner too, but in that case these non-tameable creatures won't drop anything at all when being killed, except for the stuff that players themselves have provided to the inventory of the Mob Spawner for the first creature to spawn.

Mob Spawners are machines that are not intended to let you collect infinite animal loot, but instead are designed to be used in Adventures or the like in order to create challenges for other players.

In 2017, the Pumpkirus did not offer each Halloween-themed item, seasonal recipe and costumes individually.

Instead, animated placeable Pumpkin Treasure chests, Royal Pumpkin Treasure chests and Pumpkiru's King Treasure chests with random Halloween-themed content could be obtained from the Pumpkirus during the first Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign event from October 18th 2017 to November 15th 2017.

In 2017, already crafted Haunted Gravestones could be found in Pumpkin Treasure chests, Royal Pumpkin Treasure chests and Pumpkiru's King Treasure chests that could only be traded for Pumpkiru Candy from any of the Pumpkirus that appeared during the first Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign event from October 18th 2017 to November 15th 2017.

The rare crafting Recipe for Haunted Gravestones could only be found in Royal Pumpkin Treasure chests or Pumpkiru's King Treasure chests by chance.

Pumpkiru Candy could occasionally be collected from naturally spawning Ghost Creatures when killing them during event times in the night - not all Ghost Creatures dropped Ghost Loot bags in 2017 though, many simply vanished without leaving anything.

In 2017, Pumpkiru Candy could already be collected in good amounts from the Haunted Ghost Treasure reward chests that appeared after successfully completing Idol Events, but the Candy was also contained in unlockable bundles of the Pumpkiru's Community Candy Campaign.

Only few Pumpkirus offered Pumpkiru's King Treasure chests in 2017, but it was worth the time to search for such Pumpkirus, since Pumpkiru's King Treasure chests were the only type of chests with guaranteed Halloween-themed crafting Recipes inside of them, while Royal Pumpkin Treasures only had a chance of containing one of these seasonal recipes.

Some chests with Pumpkiru Candy inside could also be obtained by claiming the Community "thief rewards" from the Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign during Halloween 2017.

From October 18th 2017 to November 15th 2017, the Creativerse player community unlocked several rare crafting recipes simply by successfully completing fighting events. Every victory of each player was counted and the total was displayed on a slider on the main game screen as well as ingame when opening the inventory/bag. Whenever a certain number was reached, another one of three rewards was unlocked.

To claim these rewards, you had to be present during Pumpkiru's Community Candy Campaign 2017 and click on one or more of the unlocked pumpkin icons on the slider - either in the bottom right corner of the main screen before entering a game world or on the slider that showed ingame on top of the screen when opening the inventory.

Then you could claim the according reward bundle on any game world of your choice from your inventory and take the reward bundles from the storage container that looked like a stack of wooden crates when placing them into the game world. You cannot claim any Pumpkiru's Community Candy Campaign rewards anymore after the Halloween-event 2017 has ended.
