Raining here, it’s been a while
Since the last blog post, there have been some big changes. The biggest of all these changes is a brand new penguin model!
Here are some images if you aren’t caught up.
Above you can see three different actions with the new model, sitting, dancing and waving. In the sitting image, you can see behind me the Nightclub, decorated as a barn for the Western party. It’s been going on for some time now, but if you have not picked up the Polka-Dot Bandanna at the town, you should do so soon!
Above you can see the new Snow and Sports catalog! There are some great new items in there, so make sure to check it out.
In other news, the Patreon for CP3D has recently had an overhaul. There are now three base ranks. Rookie (one dollar a month) gets you donor access to the Discord and grants you a special pin. Gary (five dollars a month) is the same as the Rookie rank, except donor backgrounds are included with it. The last rank, Rory (ten dollars a month) comes with the same rewards as the previous, except with the added BIG bonus of being able to test updates early (including minigames!)
Keep in mind that some of these things may be tweaked soon, but if you want to donate, do so here: https://www.patreon.com/CP3D
Discord: https://discord.gg/Faq4EGd (You must be 13 or older to use Discord)
Well, that about wraps up this blog post! Be sure to be active around the island, as some big updates will be coming soon… including a brand new minigame!
Until then, waddle on!
It’s been a few weeks since the Summer party has ended, and penguins are starting to miss it already. If you’re starting to feel nostalgic, reading these Summer party reviews might help!
Let’s see what penguins had to say –
Jingle, “I logged on for the first time ever right in the middle of the Summer Party ^_^ I love this game and can’t wait to see what is in store as time goes on. I love everything about it, from the iconic original aesthetic to the goofy objects like palm trees and curvy buildings brought to life. They even made the entire octopus at the dojo :’) I love you guys”
The Summer party would be a great starting party for any penguin. Four free items, grand decor, relaxing vibes, simply making a great starter.
Cid, “The summer party introduced warm weather, awesome throw-back items and nostalgic leisurely tunes, and of course the first ever newspaper. We’re off to a great start, especially with the growing community. The scattered surf-boards were awesome and filled the place out a bit more. The item hunt was challenging, but a blast. I was consumed by the party and forgot there was no pin to search for!”
The Summery party was a grand milestone for Club Penguin 3D! With more refined parties and newspapers, it’s only a glimpse of what the future will bring to the game. Pins will make it in one day!
Speaking of parties and newspapers, the next paper will be coming alongside the next hot party.
There’s not another question this time, so stay tuned for the next blog to leave your review! The next Reviewed By You blog will come shortly after the next.
On Club Penguin Island, summer has taken full-swing! With many rooms decorated for the summer, and many fun free items, there is a lot to do during the Summer party. If you have not come on for the party yet, you should do so now!
There are four free items in total that you can collect. One of them is a hidden item! Also, be on the look out for any potential mascots!
Also, the first newspaper was released! To check out the Penguin Times, just log on and click the newspaper button on the top left of the screen. Get reading!
Another update includes a new way how some furniture items work. Some items, for example, the cactus, can be set on top of other items. Make sure not to set a cactus on a chair, unless you want someone to get poked!
There were many bug fixes in the summer update. Your penguin colour, for example, is now represented in Bean Counters.

We will be having our first ‘Reviewed By You’ post soon. We want to feature your reviews! What do we want you to review? The Summer Party, of course! Comment on this blog post how you feel about the Summer Party and have a chance of being featured on the next blog.
Thanks for reading, penguins!
As some of you might know, the game was updated earlier today. There were several bug fixes, however more notable additions include a brand new map, a new Better Igloos catalog, a revamped igloo storage system and some big room updates. Let’s dive in.
To start, the Snow Forts/Ice Rink had a big overhaul.
The Ski Village was also updated, although far less significantly. The room has shrunk a bit.
The Better Igloo catalog for June was also released. This is the first igloo catalog since January! You can expect more frequent Better Igloo catalogs from now on. Also, there are indeed secrets in this catalog.
There is now a more advanced furniture inventory in the game. It is much less cluttered than the previous and easier to use.
For full notes on version 22.214.171.124, you can look below.
-Better Igloos Catalog (June)
-Reworked igloo storage system
-Ski hill room model size reduced
-10k party removed
-Entering/Exiting igloo edit mode now toggles other UI elements for more visibility
-Updated Snow fort/Ice rink room
-Diffuse shader applied to penguin colors
-Players can not click click to unequip certain items from the player image
-E+0 not making sad face emote
-Exclamation emote not working
-See catalogs through loading screen
-White line on island view from iceberg
Thanks for reading!
P.S. – You can fit inside the recycle bin 😉
I am happy to announce that Club Penguin 3D has reached its first big user milestone; 10,000 activated penguins! This means that there are at least 10,000 accounts that can be used to play CP3D. There are close to 6,000 accounts that are not yet activated, which means they cannot be used to play Club Penguin 3D. In order to activate an account, you must use an activation code given by e-mail.
(If you have not yet received an activation e-mail, visit https://account.cp3d.org/activate.php)
This also leads to another big announcement; We are throwing a mini-event for the milestone! You can expect to be able to update your game very soon.
You may be wondering where you can find the event, and what it brings. The event is only in one room (hence it being called a ‘mini-event’) but it will bring multiple items. The 10,000 penguin event will take place at the Ski Hill.
Be sure to come online quick for the event, since it will be soon gone after the weekend!
Also be on the lookout for some new content on the Club Penguin 3D channel! There might be a new video celebrating the milestone, as well as a stream. That’s all that you need to be caught up on for the past week.
Thanks for reading the first blog in a long time, penguins!
We appreciate everyone’s continued patience as we work diligently to sort out gameplay issues and work on developing some exciting new features. With that in mind, the team is pleased to announce the next major version of Club Penguin 3D.
-Newly modeled Pizza Parlor interior
-Newly modeled Pizza Parlor building
-Improvements to the existing Pet Shop interior
-New mini-game: Ice Fishing
-Furniture system is officially introduced
-Furniture catalog is deployed with 13 different furniture items to choose from
-Updated map (new option: welcome room)
-Players can jump while sitting
-Remove furnishing in the sport shop by the window
-Coffee shop polygon count decimated
-Adjustments to gift shop to reduce lagging
-Signing into the game while previously walking a puffle causes issues on the playercard system
-Error with restart text in Bean Counters
Our latest build of the game is undergoing private testing for any potential issues that may impact the gameplay. Provided nothing major is reported, you can all expect the game to return this Wednesday (January 30).
A teaser video showcasing some of the newest features can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/JTEHJlLCYiw
-Puffles are unable to follow the player around in the igloo and a few select rooms. I am unable to diagnose the issue at this time.
-A furniture limit of 10 is being universally set for each furniture item. This limit will be gradually adjusted as we evaluate the performance furniture items will have on player’s computers.
-At this time, furniture states will not be available. What are furniture states? Taking the refrigerator as an example, in Club Penguin, you could press the Up/Down keys to toggle whether the fridge was open or closed. This kind of functionality is not yet supported in CP3D, but it will be in the future.
For more information on the database breach, and our game’s roadmap, please see this document.
Registrations and logins are available again here (https://account.cp3d.org/). As a reminder, these pages were taken down because they were exploited to steal almost every user’s information. The issue that allowed this to happen has been fixed, and we will be actively monitoring all of the logs as our time permits. During our downtime, I’ve observed subsequent attempts (all of which have failed) to undermine our server’s security. Do not attempt to do this. I am carefully monitoring these kinds of cases and permanently banning every one I see.
Your passwords have always been securely hashed in our database. We do not store them in plain text. Although the likelihood of your password being cracked is highly unlikely, you are still recommended to change your password. Avoid using the same password on more than one website, especially with your email address.
I have changed the structure of the activation keys. All users who did not activate their account must request another one here: https://account.cp3d.org/activate.php. The activation code in your email will no longer work.
Upcoming changes in Version 126.96.36.199
– Halloween decorations reverted (except for ski village)
– New Room: Ski Lodge
– Login sequencing improved for security
The game itself will still be under maintenance mode pending completion of the next update (188.8.131.52).
Most other in-game features will remain unchanged. The target release for 184.108.40.206 is late this week. The Christmas party is planned later this month in a separate update (220.127.116.11).
Good day friends!
Since early 2017, Club Penguin 3D (CP3D) has been a project intended to recreate your favorite childhood experience in 3D. In recent months, our team has been hard at work and made significant progress to make that a reality.
Today, we’re officially announcing the start of something new. Starting next month in October, we will be rolling out CP3D in three phases. Please pay careful attention to the following.
Phase 1 (Closed Beta): Closed Beta will start on October 10th, and will only be available to select users. Any other user would only be allowed to test with the consensus of staff members.
Phase 2 (Open Beta): Open Beta will start on October 17th, and will be available to all users. Registration will also be made public at this time.
During open and closed beta, it is expected that all users will report all technical issues such as crashing or freezing to a developer for review. Other reported issues may be determined to be trivial and thus delayed as they’re not considered a priority.
Phase 3 (Final Release): Beta testing will end on October 23rd and access to the servers will be suspended. Access will resume on October 24th at 5 PM EST to mark the official launch of CP3D to the world. A beta testing party will immediately take place until Friday to commemorate the end of the beta testing period. This will be the only time in our history users may obtain the beta hat. Be sure you’re registered, and come out to celebrate the official launching of CP3D!
A special event will take place on launch day at 6 PM EST. All online users will automatically be summoned to a special room to truly celebrate the start of something new.
The Halloween party will take place shortly after the end of the beta testing party.
- Although the team is hard at work, we’re often limited by our time commitments irl. Therefore, it is important to remember that not every feature in CP on its official launch may be available on CP3D’s official launch. We are working as best as we can to finalize all existing features already in the game and to work on developing the missing ones.
- We currently do not have a list of unavailable features as we are still too far out from release. We will announce ahead of time any features that may not make it into final release.
We appreciate your continued support and hope you are as excited as we are!
-CP3D Development Team
