  1. So it is apparent that tps is a large issue on the voltz servers, it is bothersome to players and has turned away some new players. A big potential cause for high tps is chunk loading via anchor upgrades inside digital miners. There are, or at least could be developed, plugins for chunk loading. So players can use that instead of anchor upgrades, which can a banned item. Perhaps the plugin could have maintenance cost for players that increases with the number of chunks loaded. In addition to this, you could perhaps make the plugin remove the chunk loading after an inactivity period. I know such plugins already exist on modded servers however I am not sure of the public availability of them. This would greatly reduce the number of chunks loaded and somewhat scale the number of chunks loaded to the number of active players instead of all both active and inactive players. Lemme know if you have any further questions. Kind regards,
  2. This isn't a big issue but it's been there for awhile. The coal shop sign buys redstone and the redstone shop sign buys coal. voltz 1.12.2

  4. What Server are you applying for? Voltz 1.12.2 What is your In-Game Name? nathanexe What is your Discord Name and ID? Jackal#8990 What is your time zone? Where are you from? Australian Eastern Daylight Time (GMT+11) Tasmania, Australia When are you available? At the moment I can dedicate at least the evenings (6-10 pm) to the server as well as a lot of unorganized time throughout the day, however as I restructure my schedule to accommodate my private studies I will be able to play from 6-7 in the evenings and I will be able to dedicate at a decent amount of time a day but I cannot say exactly when until my schedule is changed. What is your In-Game Rank? Titan, there are no /ar check commands available. [edit] After being informed about /ru check, I have 5 days, 7 hours ingame time at the time of edit. (on volts 1.12.2 specifically) When did you first start playing Minecraft? (When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz?) I started to play in early beta (beta 1.2 I think, I honestly can't remember the year) I have been playing modpacks ever since the technic pack, basically the modpack that eventually evolved into tekkit classic, I was experienced with installing mods even in beta. I have set up many voltz servers and tekkit servers with friends over the years. But I actually evolved with the modpack community so I started playing modpacks like skyfactory, ftb infinity, All the Mods, agrarian skies, project ozone, project ozone 2 and the new project ozone 3. (I recently hosted a pretty cool project ozone 2 server for friends) I eventually started playing voltz again, and a couple years later voltz 1.12.2. :) I have been playing Minecraft for probably about 10 years, modded Minecraft for about 9 years and voltz ever since yogscast made their first yt series on it. What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? I was a moderator (and eventually a manager/staff manager) in a beatboxing/rapping community (was one of the largest online beatboxing communities in the world at the time) I was a moderator for MyM (Mine your Mind) Minecraft server network that hosted many servers of various modpacks. They had very strict theft and grief rules even in unprotected areas so I definitely had a lot to do since mods actually had to investigate thefts/griefs and return items from the thief. Also, I moderated their TeamSpeak, chat, and forum. Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfil? Extending onto what I said before for MyM we had a ticket system where people post complaints in-game or on the website that gets funneled to all the staff and gets dealt with by staff. Each ticket had a rank attached to it so there was no ambiguity to who has the power to deal with the situation. Most griefs, thefts, chat-mod related stuff and general problem solving could be done by mods. I was experienced with the plugin Prism. I was a manager for BRC (beatbox-rap-community) where I eventually had the responsibility to restructure the entire staff team. I created the staff application template/ the staff application/interview system (since most of the community was on TeamSpeak), the interview scripts, a detailed handbook on all the staff positions and their responsibilities, me, the owner and another manager organized a set of staff meetings and a used a cool website for us to write stuff down on the same document during the meetings. I left BRC due to a corrupt co-owner that had an abusive relationship with the owner. I and half of the remaining staff all left. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? I really enjoy helping and talking to people, and I have gotten a little attached to this server. I really want to see this server grow and develop and it'd be amazing if I could be a part of that. When I am on I rarely see staff on and I regularly encounter new players so, in my mind, I'd like to believe that I could be an asset to the community and ultimately help this community grow while providing a positive environment. Who are you? I am Nathan, a physics and mathematics student at university. I am extremely passionate and curious about my own studies that I spend much of my time studying or tutoring. I am self-employed making a pretty decent income for a university student. I am looking to actually start programming but that won't be for a little while. In the future, I am looking to be a theoretical physicist, basically a poor researcher. For a long time, my identity for those around me was actually for my music, as I play guitar and is a fingerstyle guitarist as well. A lot has happened to me and I have encountered a lot of bad situations however I try to scale every obstacle that has gotten in my way, now I really want to help people scale these obstacles for themselves. What is your Age? 19 What are your strengths and weaknesses? For sake of time and ease of the reader, I'll answer this question in bullet points. Strengths: I am a quick and flexible learner, I pick up new skills quickly and can adapt to new situations with ease. I am friendly and love helping people out. I pride myself on honesty. I enjoy solving problems in quick efficient ways. Some things I am a slow learner at but I still end up learning them quickly because I like to work viciously hard at learning things. Weaknesses: I have a terrible memory, my memory is weird because it seems like I have a good memory for some things and terrible memory for others. Sometimes I am a bit disorganized, it's something I have been working on for a while. I am not very good at dealing with language barriers. I am a slow thinker, really strange and need a lot of elaboration. Think of it this way, I would do better on a 10 question extremely difficult test than a 100 question moderately difficult test. Extremely bad at rote learning Kind regards, This application has been edited after being posted to include ingame-time as requested. [edit2] Oh dear, uh I just stumbled upon my old application from 2 years ago and for reasons beyond my understanding, I lied about my age in it despite my age at the time being perfectly fine. That application was denied for a lack of teamspeak time. I sincerely apologize for my dishonestly at that time, I hope it does not have a detrimental effect here. I am more than capable of showing proof of my age.
  5. I am curious of where this network is heading... You still with me? Is there any plans to expand the network, perhaps to maintain more servers of different modpacks? (Like MyM) Or perhaps is there any development in the structure of the staff team, development of the website, forums, advertisement etc. What ambitions do the owner and perhaps high ranking staff have for this network,

  10. No, I was just curious. I was thinking like FTB, Skyfactory and things a long that line. I am already aware of the other modpacks as well as the RustMC, I was more interested in the eventual development.
