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.)​

It's Eurovision time!

Another year has passed, and the world's greatest song contest is about to return, this year in Kiev, Ukraine, with the semi-finals being held tomorrow. To celebrate the contest that gave us Verka Serduchka and the singing grannies, we've just decided in #lounge that we're going to hold a Eurovision-themed music night on Discord!

It will take place on Tuesday 9th May (tomorrow, at the time of this being posted) at 6pm GMT, an hour before the semi-final starts. We'll be playing the good, the bad, and the hilarious, so please come if you have the chance. We'll be in #music when the event starts.

See you there!

To clarify, this isn't very serious, but it is rather funny nonetheless.
Event TNT Wars
At the beginning of this month, I announced my intention of bringing back Classic TNT Wars in premium as an event. The server is now fully complete, and will be opened on Saturday 13th May at 7:00PM GMT, 1 hour before the meeting. The server will be accessible through the regular server lobby.​


Here's an awesome trailer for the server made by GOODYSMOODY - big shoutout to him!

Release Date: 29 April, 9PM GMT (After the meeting)
Server IP: lobby.escaperestart.com:25568

After a few days of the poll, the clear winner became apparent so work was started, we did a bit of testing and building and it looks like we're good to release.

I'd like to thank Zel, Freaky, Arelic and all the admins that helped. I hope you all have a great time on the server!​

It's been a fun past few months running and managing DarkRP for ER, but sadly, it is time to shut it down. DarkRP started to stagnate shortly after release, and with most of the staff being super busy at the most inconvenient of times (including myself), the server pretty much died out and sat here with no purpose.

With that, Hoog and Myself have agreed that it needs to be shutdown. We don't want to dedicate any more resources to it, because of how far deep in the hole it is - and in reality, once your playerbase turns to none on a gmod server, the server will most likely sit there for eternity only getting a few random players every few weeks.

Thank you all who have participated in the beta, that helped out staffing, or just generally played and enjoyed the server. We wouldn't have made it this far without you, and I appreciate all of you :-). This server wouldn't have been anything without this community behind it. The server is already closed and will have no closing event due to lack of interest in the recent times. The forums will be put into archives shortly also. If you ever need anything from the server, just shoot Hoog or myself a PM, as we have backups of the server.

With that, I assure you that I still (and a few others) have a few plans up their sleeves still, so stay tuned in the future!
