Welcome to Blocktopia!

The Create Staff are proud to present the new iteration of our Creative Server, Blocktopia!

It's been a long journey of configuring, setting up, transferring worlds and ranks, and many other things but we've overcome it all and introduced a slew of new features with it!

Join now @ lobby.escaperestart.com

You can view the full feature list down at the bottom of the page!

New Worlds & Spawns


New Plugins & Features


Regarding Old Plots
Old plots are still on Blocktopia and are 100% accessible on the server! We do want to get rid of the worlds at some point and upload them instead to relieve some stress on our hard drive though. If you are interested in staff transferring your plot into the new plot worlds, just shoot one of us a PM, or leave a comment below quoting this...​

Blocktopia

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!

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...

Create Updates & Stability Improvements
“We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” -Bob Ross

In my efforts to update create right out of work and just getting done with the forums, I made a little mistake and erm updated Create to 1.13.2! It's a pretty funny story but I won't bore you with the admin details. This update does mean you can now use 1.13.2 items on Create, along with stability and performance!
(You can join on 1.12.2 but you will not render 1.13.2 content correctly)

There may be bugs though, because some plugins had be to be replace or are developmental builds.If you encounter any, feel free to report them on our bug tracker here.

I will also note that instead of opting to keep the server closed for ~2-3 days rendering chunks on 1.13.2, i will let players do it themselves. Realize this does mean there may sometimes be some TPS drops, but no crashes like before...​

What can Phabricator do for you?

It's great to see that everyone's flocked to join our new bug tracker which I so nicely set up for the community-

Wait, what? Ah. I don't think it's been given a good introduction - let me do the honours.

This is Phabricator, our new bug tracking platform. You may remember we used to use "Mantis" to track bugs before replacing it with subforums, but we wanted something a bit more powerful (and Mantis broke). To put it into perspective, this is the same system used by Wikipedia, Uber and Facebook. Here's a little rundown on how to use it.


Logging in
You will be navigated to log in automatically if the system needs you to. However, if you want to view your dashboard for example, the login button's at the top.
