It's not a very well kept secret that a SMP server is currently being developed. The team has come to a crossroads and decided to reach out at the community for help. Progress hasn't been very high and we feel a detailed survey will help move things into gear.

We realise that our Legacies of Primordia didn't go so well and we are taking measures to prevent the same sort of thing from happening again. We appreciate every piece of feedback and promise to read every word. Thank you for sticking with us.

Thanks to Arelic for the banner.

Reddit - /r/EscapeRestart was recently acquired again, Jeercrul has offered to help with the CSS. The subreddit is still a large WIP, and is under-going a lot of changes atm - so it may be a bit messy. Also, we have posted a post on /r/mcservers! If you want, you should go upvote it so we can get more users. You can view the post here.

Graphics - There's a ton of new graphics coming out soon also, so be prepared for that. You will be seeing screenshots and other images with them soon....​
Hi, just a quick post.

For a while, probably too long now, we've been discussing a few changes to bans and ban appeals. This will allow us to provide banned users with a bit of consistency on how we handle their bans and therefore try to ensure everyone is treated fairly. Establishing a policy now should ensure we avoid the CAs changing policy every few months in the future. The main changes aren't too revolutionary, but here they are:
  • Permanent bans have been abolished. For all global bans, they will be replaced with bans that are appealable after at least one year. People currently on permanent global bans may appeal a year after their ban/last appeal. People currently on permanent server bans may appeal 6 months after either their last appeal if one was made, or their ban.
  • Forum-banned people have the option to evade to appeal ONLY, as well as appealing through someone else. We’d like to have made a solution where banned people could appeal through their own account, but that is currently not yet possible. When it is possible, this will no longer be required.
  • There will be a couple of things made consistent behind the scenes. If a staff member fails to respond to a ban appeal or they are no longer staff, the server staff will instead vote on the unban. With a global ban appeal, the admins will vote on the matter. A 70% majority is needed for an unban.
These changes were discussed very heavily amongst the admins, and the full "policy" is available at https://escaperestart.com/forum/help/afterappeal/. Hopefully, this should have a positive impact on the ban appeal system, providing some stability on the whole issue, and an opportunity for those currently permabanned to prove that they are good, whilst keeping...

As the name of this update suggests, the focus of it is on achievements. In total, 35 new achievements have been added.
A new tier system has also been introduced. Currently, there are 6 tiers of achievements, from 1 to 6. Tier 1 is the easiest achievements, whereas tier 6 is the most difficult to obtain. Each of the tiers has a different color, as shown below:
  • Tier 1
  • Tier 2
  • Tier 3
  • Tier 4
  • Tier 5
  • Tier 6
There is also a Miscellaneous tier for achievements which don't fit into any tier.

Lastly, the /achievements menu has been re-designed. You can toggle the menu type to show either the original style menu or the tiered menu by clicking the center block at the bottom of the menu (shown in the first picture)....

Minecraft 1.12
We have installed a patch to allow users on both 1.12 and 1.11.2 to be able to connect to our servers. We will be updating our servers over the coming weeks, however at this time we are unable to give a date as there are plugins which we require which we need to wait for to be updated.

We will notify you if/when there will be any downtime for the update. The best way to get this notification is to join our Discord server (read above).​

Update: The event is now over. Thanks for playing!

Owing to the recent success of our Pixelmon event server as we experiment with providing different Minecraft (and hopefully other game) events, we've decided to do another modpack. This time, FTB Infinity Evolved. The modpack is "the general all-purpose pack from the FTB team" - in other words, it has something for most people. See https://www.feed-the-beast.com/ for the download links.

The event will run from Friday 9th June (so we can maximise the weekend) at 8pm GMT (9pm BST, 4pm EST) - which is flexible if we feel a different time/date would be better - to whenever people stop playing it. The server IP will be lobby.escaperestart.com:25568. We hope to see you there!

(PS: Pixelmon has indeed closed, and its world download is located at lobby.escaperestart.com/Pixelmon.tar.gz. The file is about 1.58GB. Also, there's a meeting on Saturday at 8 pm GMT. You should go to it. Meetings are cool.)​
