Batugus Labs is a large underground complex filled with many redstone, craftbook and other types of generators, farms and contraptions. It also has many secret pathways and rooms. Most of the generators in the labs are also public but if you are unsure of one ask Anna. Beware of traps as there are a few of those too :)
Most of the tunnels in the labs are connected to a Dome which have a pathway out to a tunnel or generator on each side. Inside each Dome there is normally a beacon that will give speed to make it easier to get around.
Creation of the Batugus Labs
The Batugus Labs first started when making a mass auto potion brewer after Anna_28 and Pieapple42 had made two others before and wanted to make a even better one.
After making the potion brewer Anna and Pie decided to build more useful generators and farms in the same area and connect them with long maze like tunnels. This was also a great spot to build it as it was under under their first big build Batugus ("under under" because it is under the ground under Batugus, as Batugus is in the sky and the labs are underground).
Things Inside the Labs
- Auto/Mass Potion Brewer (note: has a on/off switch).
- Item Destroyer (put items in the chest and watch them burn), this was one of the first things built here as the amount of cobble from digging the tunnels was filling up too many chests.
- Small mushroom room. A tiny room filled with a few mushrooms and mycelium.
- Villager Trading Hall. This is basically just a wall of a room with a bunch of villagers in it, it is hardly ever used as there isn't much use for emeralds.
- Auto/Mass Item Smelt/Cooker. A small room with chests to place fuel and items to cook, it then puts these items spread out into multiple furnaces to cook them extra fast.
- Zombie Grinder (likely to be removed or relocated). This is just a small and simple zombie xp grinder which is about 1/4 and turns on when someone gets too close so it most likely going to be moved somewhere else.
- Semi-Auto Flower/Seed Farm. (note: needs bonemeal) This farm is used by standing on the pressure plate in front of it then holding down rightclick with bonemeal on the grass, yellow and red flowers (because of biome) get collected with seeds in a chest in the wall.
- Spawner Room. A room with a single spawner in it that can be set to spawn mobs on grass (normally set to mushroomcows).
- werdnaz's flying mushroomcow room. A locked room which has flying mushroomcows in it made by werdnaz.
- Auto Cooked Steak and Leather generator.
- Magic Diamond Block. This block is very very magical, some even say it can teleport or transport you somewhere amazing.

- Full Enchanting Room. A enchanting table with enough bookshelves around it to get level 30 enchants.
- Cooked Chicken Generator. Using only vanilla redstone to power it, it has chickens that lay eggs and then shoot them out to be used and create baby chickens that get cooked after growing up. Currently has a bug which makes it shoot egg items out the hallway behind it.
- Iron Generator. A chest connected to a hopper line that goes up to the surface and collects iron from the single iron farm above.
- Music Room. A room where all the unused and extra music discs get sorted into, also has a switch that turns music on/off.
- Bedroom. This is a room, with beds in it. Also has two normal chests and a enderchest to put things in. It is a good idea to set your spawn here in case you die.
- Wither Cage. Currently has no real wither in it, but it once had a real wither inside it. The wither kept breaking out though as they can break blocks. After 6 Withers breaking out and even blowing up the cooked chicken generator the wither was replaced by a fake wither made of blocks.

- Player head hall. This is a very long hallway with mostly donated heads (the players were asked nicely and agreed to donate their head). Above each head is a sign saying who it belongs to. Each head is on a normal or mossy cobblestone wall, mossy means staff or important player. The player who the head belonged to also has their favorite block under the cobblestone wall.

- Tour Room. A room with stained glass walls that allows people in the Tour to view Batugus Labs.

Exit/Entrance Portal. This portal is what takes you from the nether back to the overworld the way you came in. It is located in the middle of a hallway.
- Skull Grinder V1. This is the first version of the skull grinder, it goes a reasonable speed and uses only a few spawners. It is not the safest grinder though, if you stand in the corners you may get hurt by the skeletons. This grinder can be used for xp, coal, arrows, bones or stone swords.
- Skull Grinder V2. This is the second version of the skull grinder, much faster and safer with a better and large item sorting and storing system. To spawn the skeletons stand up by the exit portal. The sorting sustem still overflows with stone swords and bones, and sometimes items go into the wrong chests.
- Skull Grinder V3. (Not complete or ready for use), This is the third version of the Skull Grinder which is not completed yet. The main improvement is the item sorting and storage size, which will be much bigger and better than V2.
- Item Destroyer. Another item destroyer, this one is mainly used for stone swords and bones from the skull grinders to empty the chests of unwanted items.
- Milk/Soup/Steak/Leather Farm. This is a small room in a wall where mushroom cows spawn so you can collect milk (to cure any poison if a skeleton somehow hits you) or get steak and leather by killing the cows which respawn.
- Full Enchanting Room. Pretty normal enchanting room with bookshelves to get up to level 30 enchants.
- Anvil Wall. Small pillar in a wall with anvils in it, if the bottom one breaks the one above falls down to replace it.
- StrangeOne101's Tree Farm. This Tree farm is mainly built for speed and is currently incomplete. It is going to use the bones from the second skull grinder to bonemeal saplings, then it collects the wood and leaves off the tree. The leaves are moved and replaced in a piston leaf crusher which quickly turns the leaves into saplings to be replanted.
- Safe Wither Killer. This uses the bedrock in the roof of the nether to push the wither into a spot where it can't break anything. Please ask before using this as it requires placing blocks and could go wrong and blow things up.
- StrangeOne101's Large Tree Farm. This Tree farm is up by the third wither skull grinder, it is much larger than the other tree farm.
- Ice Path to Fort Zeranel. This is a path made by Anna and Zomon which goes straight to Fort Zeranel ( Zomon333's Place). You can use the ice path to get there or from there to the labs very quickly by running and jumping down it.
- Ladder to the Nether Highway System.. A ladder going up through the nether to below the roof where the Nether Highway System is. The connection can be found on the north tunnel near the very start.
