1.15.x
Our servers now support 1.15.x! Not only that, but Blocktopia is now updated to 1.15.2! You can join the lobby with any version ranging from 1.12-1.15, but please keep in mind you must be in 1.15 to join any of our servers that are 1.15. This is also to prepare for our new SMP.

Coronavirus & Effects on Staff
I figured I should also put a little update regarding COVID-19 and our community staff and whats going on. I hope everyone is staying safe during these times and are making sure to follow recommended guidelines by the CDC. If you don't want to do it for yourself, think of your older family members and friends.

Luckily, mostly everything where I am situated is fine and from what I know the rest of the staff team is safe and healthy also. I actually have a lot more time on my hands now due to my job being shut down - so expect a few things to be updated and maintained throughout while I have a lot more free time on my hands. I'm looking at upgrading the lobby and possibly working on the other servers.

Donations
Found some spare change in your couch and are feeling generous? Donate to us to ensure our servers stay up! We also have a Patreon page where you can donate however much you want monthly, and gain a Discord donor rank if it's over $5/m: check it out here! https://www.patreon.com/escaperestart

Blocktopia has also implemented its first wave of Donor Rewards in-game! Make sure to link your account and hop on the server to check it out.

Changes to Community News
From now on, if a server doesn't have any news it will no longer be included in that month's news. I am doing this to streamline our news more and make it easier to showcase things that are actually happening rather than just displaying everything where it may get lost. If you have any other suggestions to improve the news, let me know! I really want to start monthly news again, and I need to stick to it.

I also made a new banner šŸ˜Ž

Minecraft / Discord Account Link
Register your forum account and get a [Member] rank in the Lobby.
If you are a donor, you will get the [Donor] rank in Lobby & Create, and if you link your discord you will get the Donor role in our discord!

Donor features as said above are planned, so make sure to link up if you haven't already!

Bugs
Bugs are sadly hard to avoid - especially when going up two major versions. If you find any bugs on Blocktopia, make sure to report them on our phabrictor here. If you need help understanding Phabricator, you can read this helpful post by SirC here!

Welcome to Simple SMP, no bullshit, straight up SMP. Read more on this post @

The server is currently really near end development, and you should expect to see a lot more news soon! I really hope this refreshing take on SMP will help everyone enjoy the current times with everything going on.

If you want to help out on the project, feel free to contact Hex! I know there are a lot of staff already, but even if you just have ideas or want to pitch in without having staffing responsibilities - its all helpful.

You can take a survey here https://forms.gle/jpXNjbh7nDftidPv5 which will also help me :)​
