    As @Edgar's guide unfortunately has gone outdated, I'm writing a new one for everybody that has interest in playing on our Voltz 2.0 / Project Phoenix server. In this guide I will refer to this modpack as 'Project Phoenix', to simplify things. What is Voltz 2.0 / Project Phoenix? Project Phoenix is Oblivion Networks' custom modpack. It is a improved, and much more updated version of our most popular server; Voltz. The modpack comes pre-configured with our server in server list, so you can quickly, and easily join the fun! How do I play/install Voltz 2.0 / Project Phoenix? Please follow the instructions below. You will need to have the Technic Launcher installed already. Step 1. Download the files here. Step 2. Locate the files you just downloaded. If you're on Windows, you will likely find the files under your 'Downloads' folder. Step 3. We now need to install any modpack, so we can replace the files with the files for Project Phoenix. Open the Technic Launcher and log in. Click on the 'Modpacks' tab, and type in the name of any random modpack in the searchbar. It does not matter what pack you install. Step 4. Press and hold the 'Windows' key on your keyboard, together with the 'R' key. A little window should now pop up, called 'Run'. Type '%appdata%' in it (without the quotation marks). Press 'ENTER' on your keyboard, or click on 'OK'. Step 5. You should now be looking at a long list of folders. Open the '.technic' folder, followed by the 'modpacks' folder. You now get a list of folders with the modpacks you've installed on the Technic Launcher. Step 6. Open the folder of the modpack you just installed in step 3. Delete all it's content, so that it's an empty folder. Step 7. Open 'volts-updated-20.zip', the file that you downloaded in step 1. You may need a program like WinRAR to extract the files. Step 8. Drag the contents of 'volts-updated-20.zip' to your modpack folder. And that's it! IMPORTANT NOTICE: You can now launch Project Phoenix by selecting- and launching the modpack that you chose. When you press 'Launch', it will ask you if you want to update the modpack. Always choose for NO. Forgot/deleted the IP? voltz2.oblivion-networks.com Still can't quite figure it out? Feel free to join our Discord, where staff is ready to assist you! I hope this helped. See you in-game! Kind regards, ~Isa

    +============================================================+ What Server are you applying for? Voltz 2.0 What is your In-Game Name? Phoenix_561 What is your TeamSpeak Name? SamTucker Nickname on the server is Phoenix Discord Name: Phoenix#1183 What is your time zone? GMT When are you available? I am usually available after school (5 pm) and on weekends. I am usually on my computer either playing Voltz, chatting to other members or doing homework. I enjoy playing on this server and playing on this modpack, so I dedicate all my hours I have in the day towards it. On weekends, I usually end up playing until 2-3am, and if needed I could be awoken by a spam of messages on my phone. What time can you dedicate to the server on weekdays and weekends? Weekdays - 5pm - 10/11 pm Weekends - 10 am - 11 pm / 12 am What is your In-Game Rank? Sergeant (19/20 hrs) When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? (Answer in depth) I started to play Minecraft at the age of 8, this was vanilla Minecraft and I enjoyed learning the base game, but I lost interest in the normal game, as I surpassed my friends, and ended up helping them, and teaching them the game. This then lead to me discovering the technic launcher at the age of 11, I instantly fell in love with the mods that the Voltz modpack provided and quickly began to teach myself the basics of the game, after being bored of staying in the single-player mode, so I moved onto multiplayer. I started by playing on the Voltz server on the iDreams network, I enjoyed playing weeks of the game, and this ended up in me obtaining the lowest of the staff hierarchy. I was then unable to pursue higher levels of trust, responsibility, and staff, as the server was shut down. After that, I left the game and forgot my previous login, so I created the new account Phoenix_561, as soon as I gained the account, I instantly installed my old favourite modpack, and started to recover the knowledge that I gained from playing the modpack so extensively. What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? / Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfill? I have only ever applied for one staff role, and this was stated in the second paragraph in the question above. The official name of the role was 'Chat Mod', and this involved me helping others, being new or experienced, talking to people on the Teamspeak server, filtering and moderating the chat, welcoming new players and maintaining a respectable view of the server from a user standpoint. Although this role did not entail building opportunities, I used to love to build structures and I enjoyed making something look amazing, and I would love to relearn the skills and be offered to continue. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? (Answer in depth) The reason why I want to become a Helper is mainly because I view the other Helpers as inspiring people, who help others that need it and help ones that are new to the server, these people are approachable, easy to talk to, and gives a simple explanation to something that may seem difficult, and I believe that I possess these key areas to becoming a Helper. Who are you? My name is Sam, I'm a Year 10 student that enjoys the Voltz modpack and the Oblivion Network. I am a competitive swimmer and play tennis every so often. Decided to buy Minecraft again, as I am sick and tired of the lack of games worth playing on steam, and I feel like this is the only game I truly liked and couldn't look forward to playing. Doing GCSE's next year, so I'm trying to spend this year having fun and not stressing about exams ;). What is your Age? 14 What are your strengths and weaknesses? Strengths : I feel like I'm easy to talk to and approachable I can be trusted and am very responsible If there is a time limit on a task, I always complete these without a problem (unless I have a personal issue) I like to see people grow and develop as players, and people I like engaging in discussion with anyone I accept people's views and don't try to change their beliefs and overall view on a subject Weaknesses: Last time I was a staff member, I agree that I followed the guidelines too religiously, but near the end I believed that I solved this issue With a lot of homework, I might be unable to physically help people in the game but could either talk to them on discord or Teamspeak, whilst doing my work. Playing games for extended periods of time affects me negatively most of the time, this is usually resulting in a slowed typing speed, slower talking and sometimes a lack of focus. Can sometimes become stressed after a long day of school (and my school makes it extra stressful), I can sometimes not be on as long as I normally could. +============================================================+

" - "Yes I can" does not answer this question What is your In Game Rank? (/ar check rank and donator rank if applicable) - "Basic" is not a rank. Furthermore please refer to the template where it says that you must have 12 Hours of in-game time ALL answers are short and not sufficiently detailed "What experiences do you have moderating a community or game?" - Either you have misinterpreted this question, or your answer does not make sense If you refer to the template you'll see that the minimum age is 14 You may re-apply when you have turned 14 and the above flaws have been corrected PS; Please don't double post your application

    What Server are you applying for? Im applying for Voltz 2.0 What is your In-Game Name? Terret0816 What is your Discord Name and ID? Boing#0470 What is your time zone? Where are you from? EST and I am from the USA. When are you available? I am available most of the day and play late into the night on the weekends. School and stuff like that can sometimes be a minor inconvenience but overall, most of the time. What time can you dedicate to the server on weekdays and weekends I usually come online straight after school at 3 pm and then normally play up to 10 or 11 pm, whereas on the weekends I play from around 1-2pm until anywhere between 1-5am depending on how busy I've been in the week. I can always be reached via discord on my phone though and am normally able to jump on if im needed. What is your In-Game Rank? (/ar check rank and donator rank if applicable) As of now I've played for 1 Day 6 hours and am a stoneguard. The servers still pretty new and I've been playing since I saw the message in announcements and on Voltz 1.0 I have 11 days and 7 hours of playtime. I've also bought infinite homes on both servers, platinum on voltz1 and /nick on voltz2.0. When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? I first started playing Minecraft way back in 2010/2011 when a friend let me share his account to play singleplayer on. I played it pretty much every day on a laptop and sometimes a pc for several hours. I actually got to a point where I would play for so long the screen gave me headaches which lead to some pretty unhealthy habits. Eventually after a few years though I figured out how to install modded Minecraft packs by watching youtubers play the games. the first pack I downloaded was Voltz because that was the playlist of videos I was watching at that time. I only played on singleplayer and messed around by importing mod files from other packs I had installed. About 2 years ago now though I bought a new PC and around March time I realized I'd completely forgotten about modded Minecraft and immediately started back on Voltz. I re-learned all the mods and eventually got bored of the pack mainly because of the lack of mods. So I went and played a network that had a load of different modpacks and progressed through each individual modpack until I had completed them all. at this point I had over 500 hours played and I got bored again so decided to come back and revisit Voltz and came back to oblivion networks. I played through the pack again but this time (around October) I decided id apply for staff and managed to get accepted as a helper. After some time though I'd been hospitalized for about a week or two and didn't get much chance to go on the internet and my phone got completely destroyed so I couldn't get the word across to the discord resulting in me getting demoted and that was probably the last time I've played Minecraft. I went to console for a fairly long time up until about a week ago when I decided (yet again) id come back and try out this new modpack that had been announced in the discord. Which brings us up to now. What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? (Answer in depth) Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfill? I've been given a few chatmod/moderator roles on vanilla Minecraft servers back when I used to play vanilla before I came to modded. My job was to basically moderate player behavior, to engage with the community to keep it active and every now and then I'd have to start an intervention when two players claim something happened to them that the other player did and it was my job to calm them down and find an agreement that satisfied both players. Last October I also had a helper role on Oblivion-Networks but I went into more detail about that and how it ended in the paragraph above. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? (Answer in depth) Please answer thoroughly I want to be a helper because it enables me to help the community a lot easier, for example when people ask for help and I attempt to offer help I often get rejected as they thought I'd note their coordinates down and kill them or something along those lines. Whereas if I have the helper rank people know that I'm trustable and I they know that im there to help them. I think I should also be a helper because it allows me to help players when other staff are not online because I'm UK timezone which there is often a lack of in terms of staffing across all servers and networks in general. My easily approachable character means that people won't hesitate to ask questions or strike up a conversation with me. I also have a large amount of knowledge across pretty much all mods and know all about voltz1 and the mods in voltz2. This means that I am aware of glitches that could stop something from working hence meaning I could help players who experience this. However, if the staff team disagrees with this and believes that I will slow the team down or have a negative impact on the team I completely understand and respect that decision. Who are you? Give us a little information on yourself My name is Max and I thoroughly enjoy mechanics and engineering, as well as computing, however, I'm not as well self-educated in computing as id like to be. I love cars and understanding how each piece comes together and works with each other to make a working car. And I intend to go into a games-design course once I finish school and then hopefully get a career as a games designer or an engineer. Whenever I'm not playing with mechanics or fixing bikes/cars etc. I'm inside on my pc playing games. I do often go and hang around with friends and stuff more than I make it sound. What is your Age? I'm 15 turning 16 in December. What are your strengths and weaknesses? This is nothing to do with what mods/plugins you know and don't know or how good of a builder you are. We are asking what intellectual attributes you have and if you have any flaws in your personality (trust me, we all do) - you can list them via bullet points or write a paragraph or two My strengths could include: I try to be as social as I can. I've been told I have an easily-approachable, friendly character. I tend to dedicate a lot of time to something I really enjoy. If something interests me, I'm keen to learn more about that topic. I've followed the rules too closely before and feel as if I've improved myself now. Some of my flaws could also include: I can develop bad habits from time to time. I stress too much over little things. Occasionally my social anxiety likes to kick in and limit me. I focus too much on things that aren't important. Additional Information (optional) I really do look forward to getting accepted if you do agree and decide that I'd be a good fit for the staff team. However I fully accept and respect your final decision and will work harder to improve myself.
