Pixelmon is back! Will you catch them all?
A while back Pixelmon was discontinued but that did not stop several other modders to continue it and now we have Pixelmon Reforged! A lot of people seemed to enjoy the latest pixelmon event, myself included, so now EscapeRestart is hosting another official pixelmon server! Made by me and Ooglie101 with help of Arelic and a few admins.

Featuring:
- Actual working auto-generated gyms
- 6 generations worth of pokemon
- Mega evolutions
- No hunger problems
- Some quality of life side mods that are server-side only and you won't have to install.
- A spawn town so beautiful Arceus might have made it
- Hopefully you!

The server should be ready for release this friday, however because 3 days is a short notice we have put a poll™ at the top to ask if you would rather have the release of pixelmon saturday or next weekend. Most popular vote wins unless people vote for never then second most popular wins.
This friday July 27th 8PM GMT has been chosen for release date and time!

IT'S HERE NOW! IP: lobby.escaperestart.com:25566

Here's some more information (including installation) incase you have any questions. Feel free to ask more though.
What versions?
Minecraft: 1.12.2
Forge: 1.12.2 - 14.23.4.2705
Pixelmon Reforged: 1.12.2-6.3.2
Pixelmon Reforged: 1.12.2-6.3.4

How do I install pixelmon reforged?
There is a page for that on the wiki: https://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Installation

The one downside of pixelmon having been taken over by another mod team is that they use some download website that is blocked by my adblocker and because of that I couldn't download the pixelmon jar myself. If this happens to you,...

(thanks to Arelic for putting the Deathrun text on my crappy image)

Hey guys,

Exciting news: we're going to be opening a second Garry's Mod server - Deathrun!

Deathrun is a gamemode where there are two teams, the Runners and the Deaths. The Runners have to complete an obstacle course of some sort with lots of different types of challenges along the way, while the Deaths press buttons to timely activate traps on the Runners to try to kill them off before they get to the end. If you get to the finish, you get to choose a minigame to play with the Deaths to try to kill them and win the round. There are loads of different maps with different courses, traps and minigames to play, and I'll be updating the server regularly.

It's a lot of fun and it can be a really chilled out gamemode that we can hopefully have a really nice time with. I used to spend many days playing this, and many evenings winding down with a few maps and some music before bed. I've had a lot of fun on Deathrun in the past, and I hope we can have some good fun with this server.

In terms of features, we have autoclaim (so once you stand in front of a button, other Deaths can't steal it from you), autohop (means you can hold down space to keep jumping automatically, this can be disabled in your settings), customaziable GUI/HUD and cross-hairs, optional third-person mode, and pointshop.

We'll also have the !jukebox, a bunch of playermodels (more than TTT) and maps, and that's all there really is to it, so expect the download to be fairly short and sweet because it'll just be playermodels.

--

We're going to be treating this server as a new permanent server in our lineup alongside TTT. If/when it gets to a point where it's far more dead than alive and people are no longer having fun with it though, we'll...

Exam season is upon us, and a lot of our staff (and probably you guys as well!) are really busy with exams. Apologies for things moving a bit slower than usual.

1.13
Due to the vast behind-the-scenes changes with Minecraft in 1.13, for those wondering, our long-term solution will most likely be a patch allowing 1.13 clients to connect to our 1.12 servers. Many plugins will have to be redeveloped for servers, meaning that there will be a longer wait than usual if servers are to update to 1.13 - if at all. -SirC

Hello!
Why hello everyone! My name is Nillbugwtw, or William. I live in the Bay Area of California and am currently in my nth year of studying Software Engineering.

What do you do for EscapeRestart?
While I’m a Community Admin, my specific role is that of Treasurer/Bill Payer/Finances Guy. I process the donations from both our Patreon and single donation page and use them to pay our web hosting and dedicated server fees for the month. This isn’t something I could do alone, but thanks to the generous donations of users like you, we’ve been able to support ourselves exclusively from community donations, and not from the admins own wallets, for a year and a half now – but more on that in a separate post. As a CA, I also consult with Hex and tnm when we make community-wide decisions or head staff changes.

Why do you staff for EscapeRestart?
When I first joined EscapeRestart Blocktopia TheOne’s in 2010, I was 15, a sophomore in high school, fresh out of Runescape, and using a lot more “u” than “you” in my chats. The next eight years sent me on a journey that found me at every rank on Zombie Survival, eventually running the server, switching over to running Create Buildbox after Classic shutdown, and ultimately to this position as a CA. I found myself maturing with each promotion, having the responsibility of managing more people and projects. While the responsibilities I’ve had in this community will never find their way onto my resumé, the experienced I gained, especially during my formative high school years, I’ve applied in team-leadership opportunities both in employment and in academics, and I’ll be forever grateful to this community for smacking the Runescape...
The 7th GameNight is upon us!
When? This Saturday of course! Here is a countdown and the time for the event and since you won't be clicking these links anyway:
Saturday, 26.05., right after the meeting as always! 20:30 UTC

Hey hey what a surprise, BoardGameOnline has won... Also the discord poll is still open, on when you think the GameNight should take place. So just vote on it, it's just one click.

Boardgame Online is a free online game with a... certain kind of humor. The aim is to be the first to reach the finish line (and not get nuked by the UN)

These are the games you may vote on
[​IMG]
HEY HEY VOTE ON THESE:

Terraria
A minecraft clone in 2D(who would even CONSIDER playing that?)
STEAM LINK (200MB)

Boardgame Online
If you enjoy suffering and bullying, this is certainly a game to play. It is probably worth mentioning that it is slightly... well, weird
It's in browser
GAME LINK

OpenLierox
It looks like worms... But it is in realtime. Based on Liero, it's a shoot-em-up. There are several possible configurations. It has to be downloaded and installed(more info to come)
GAME LINK (75MB)

Supreme Commander Forged Alliance
Because you won't get rid of these RTSs. It's regarded as a legendary RTS and still has active servers... that is if you make an account on...​

Introduction
Hello! My name is Hexical (or Bailey!), and I'm a Senior in Highschool. I also plan on attending my local college once I graduate from Highschool this month! I live in the US, specifically in Michigan which is honestly a terrible state but what can you do.
What do you do for EscapeRestart?
I'm currently a Community Admin for EscapeRestart, and my niche for the job is Community Relations / Events. I plan / run events, help users plan our CDE's, and make sure our user base is getting along as well as possible, along with ensuring our staff our getting along, making progress, and doing what they need to do. I also help make decisions, and help with the decision making progress when there is staff discussion.

I also am Create Administrator, where I'm actually doing a large revamp of Create (you can read more about it here), and am planning on doing a lot of fun things with the "new" server! Along with making the new server, im continuously updating and trying to squash as many bugs as I can on our current server, which has been working well.
Why do you staff for EscapeRestart?
Long story short, I really really enjoy this community. I, like others, have been around fairly long, and have had a lot of good memories made on this community. I can remember being 12/13 and playing on EscapeRestart (Blocktopia) constantly, and making new friends and relationships. I want to be here to help other people experience what I did, to make sure our servers are still going on and providing the area that I love so much.

This community is important to me in my life, and I enjoy being here and having a helping hand in it. It's fun (albeit stressful at some points), I've made even more great memories, and just knowing that I have a hand in helping others feel what I used to feel years ago makes me happy....​

Hello everyone!

It was brought to our attention recently that some may be confused about what roles us admins have (especially CA's) and what we do, so we decided to start making weekly posts with introductions to our admins! These posts will have details about what they do for the community, their specific roles, and if they want to even some things like like to do to pass time / as a hobby.

We hope this will clear up some confusion for some, and help users know our admins better also. We want our community to know our Admin team well, and connect with them well also - we hope these weekly posts will help that connection.

Starting tomorrow, I will post my Introduction, and then every week we will go down the line (CA's -> Admins). We will most likely have a general set of questions, and then have the admin add anything else they want to include. If you have any questions about this, feel free to leave them below and I'll answer them as best as I can!

Thank you for reading! - The Administrator Team​
