Simple SMP Teaser / Info Thread

  • 8

Welcome to Simple SMP
After working through a pandemic and going through some weird patches of times, we are finally excited to announce the release of Simple SMP.

Simple SMP is not your average vanilla Minecraft server, but it strives to keep the core values of it in mind - so that players do get refreshing, new experiences, but also get to play the Minecraft they all know and love. We didn't want to set out and make a store, or a huge lorebook, and throw players in expecting them to read everything and understand every bit of the world - this time we set out to create a space where players can build up, work together, and create their own stories and lore of the world.

Here are some features you can look forward to on release. Keep in mind that some more topics may be explained better / more in-depth in their respective threads on the SimpleSMP Forum which will be releasing shortly also...

Welcome to EscapeRestart's New Lobby!

I have been silently working on something behind the scenes for quite some time and I'm finally ready to release it! New secrets, features, challenges, ways to pass time, & more are coming in this update. There are also of course - a ton of bug fixes! Here are some highlights of the new lobby. We have been using our current lobby for a long time now, and I figured it'd be a nice breath of fresh air to release something new to join to.

Bedrock Integration

We are testing a new proxy that allows users who are on bedrock editions (Windows 10, Switch, Mobile, Xbox, & PS4) to join our servers. Please keep in mind this is experimental, and anyone who joins with their bedrock clients may experience some glitches.

What this means is that bedrock users can fully enjoy our servers, and it can also open up our servers to a lot more people.
If you are curious about trying this out, all you...​

Minecraft One Block Skyblock

Welcome to a new and exciting take on Skyblock!

People were asking around in the discord for an event, so I decided to quickly start up a server so people have something to play while I'm still working on SimpleSMP.

If you don't know what One Block Skyblock is, go ahead and check out the video linked below for some more details on it.

Now, all that I ask is for everyone to follow our community rules, including not being a dick. If you break any of these rules, you will be banned just like any server.
Also, keep in mind this will be shutdown once SimpleSMP is released.

There is only one island, and this doesn't work on spigot servers so that isn't possible to setup - you all have to work together ;)

The server is on 1.15.2, you can join by entering in your servers :)​

Buzzin' into 1.15!

Hello everyone! I know a lot of people are home due to the coronavirus, and I'm one of those people also - so I have been putting some time into the servers so everyone has something nice and fresh to look forward too during these times. Let's jump right into whats new in this new update for Blocktopia 😄

Ditching FAWE

FAWE was buggy. We had constant problems with it, there was always a new glitch waiting around the corner that would somehow limit a user in some way. I've finally decided to do away with FAWE and replace with with Async World-Edit. It...​

Coming Soon: Simple SMP - A New Simplistic Take (+ More Surprises!)

Welcome to Simple SMP

I'm proud to finally announce the next iteration of EscapeRestart's SMP Server, one that doesn't follow any of our past servers, keeps it simple, but unique & fun.

The goal of this server is simple (heh), I saw how much the users of EscapeRestart enjoyed the Temp SMP I ran a while back. People regularly played it despite it being fairly barebones, and in my eyes, it was a pretty good server and held up well for only being temporary. I saw a lot of players talking about how much they enjoyed the server, so I decided to take a stab at something a little more feature-filled, but still stuck to the point of Minecraft. I also have some exciting news to announce on top of this...

Collaboration with r/LilPeep Discord

Admittedly, EscapeRestarts player base isn't as big as it used to be. I have been aware of this for quite a while, but luckily we still have dedicated players (especially on our...​

Hello everyone!

I'd first like to start off with saying I do apologize for the lack of communication of the forums recently. I was getting adjusted to a lot of new things in life (college, moving in with my gf, work). I popped by on the discord every once in a while to give a few updates but completely forgot to make a few quick posts on the forums and that is completely my fault and I do apologize for that. I hope everyone understands :)

Now, I wouldn't make a post like this without bringing in some other news!

First off, There is going to be a FTB Infinity Evolved Event going live on Thursday, November 14th @ 2 PM EST! It will be a very basic server, so just make sure to follow our community guidelines and the rules posted in spawn. I will make a bigger post soon with details about the server, how to obtain the modpack, and more. Hope to see everyone there.

Second, the Temporary SMP I launched a while ago was pretty popular among the community. I seen a ton of people enjoy...

Enemy on Board - Alpha Keys for the Community

Hey everyone! I have some exciting news :) My friends over at r/gmod and I have been playing a new indie game called Enemy On Board. They recently just launched into Closed Alpha and are inviting EscapeRestart to join!

Enemy On Board is an online, multiplayer game of deception combined with fast paced action combat in space! Six players wake up on a spaceship, but two are secretly body-snatching aliens. The humans have to work fast to uncover who the aliens are and kill them before the two aliens deceive and slaughter the rest of the ship. Their community has been growing really fast and the devs are always looking for good players to come and test out their game and give them feedback.

My friends working on Enemy On Board gave us a special code escaperestart. By going to their website, signing up for the alpha at ~ and using the special code in the Referral Code section, they will be...​

EscapeRestart Social Media Team Applications

  • 0
Hello! I want to breathe new life into our Social Media - but I need help with that as its hard to manage it all by myself on top of all the other things I deal with. I've decided that creating a team to manage our social media would be the best route in attempting to do this without putting too much strain on one person.

I'd also like to say that from now on, anything in #showcase on discord or showoff on the forums can be displayed on our social media! If you have something cool you've bee working on (doesn't even have to be related to Minecraft!) and want it to be shown off on our social media, just let me know (or the team members when applications close)

It's not a seriously intensive task, and splitting it up in between people will help out a lot.

Some Responsibilities Include:

Managing Social Media Pages
Uploading Content
Updating Info on Social Media Pages
Collaborating with other Team Members
Interacting with users on Social Media
Following Trends and Using...​

As we near the release date of the 26th, i figured I'd make an update post to make sure players are all expecting the release and are prepared :)

I am super excited, along with all my staff, to finally release Blocktopia to the community and for players to experience a entirely new creative server. It's also sweet that we are releasing during the week of our 10 year celebration! 🎉

I will make an official release post near the date, so look for that!

Event EscapeRestart - 10 Year Anniversary

EscapeRestart - 10 Year Anniversary

On June 1st 2009, Minecraft first gained multiplayer as part of Classic build 0.0.15a_01. Almost 2 months later, on July 24th, TheOne’s opened up business for the first time - a pioneer of custom Minecraft server software. 10 years on, a couple of name changes and many Minecraft versions later, we stand here today as EscapeRestart.

If you’d like to learn more about our long and storied history, visit Notme’s post here. In the meantime: thank you. To all our staff, helpers, developers, and especially users - we don’t have a community without you. We are one of the oldest Minecraft communities still in existence, and that is a testament to the strength of the community and the character of the people within it.

Onto the festivities! We’ve got 5 events lined up...

A brief hello for a great cause.

Hi everyone. As you are all aware of the unfortunate news, Jack (SalientGorilla) passed away a little over three weeks ago after his long fought battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma.

Before he went I told him that I’ll be doing a 5K run for cancer to gain awareness about Ewing’s Sarcoma, which is a cancer that affects the bone and soft tissue’s surrounding it and typically affects teens from the age of 10 through till 20 as it inherently affects young people.

Unfortunately only 50% of people with Ewing’s Sarcoma live upto 5 years, and while it is a rare cancer and highly treatable now, it is aggressive and incurable when it spreads.

I appreciate that in recent years I’ve not had a good impact on the community, but a lot has changed and I want to do Jack proud.

I have set up a donation page that has so far garnered £160 of the £500 goal, as this money will go to a charity chosen by Jack when the race has been completed! Any donations would be forever appreciated, and if you can’t...
