  1. As @Edgar's guide unfortunately has gone outdated, I'm writing a new one for everybody that has interest in playing on our Voltz 2.0 / Project Phoenix server.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
  2. I'm afraid there is not, unless you logged off there most recently. We can check where you logged off, but we can't check where your last home was set. Did you maybe not accidentally take a screenshot of your coordinates? Did you maybe tell them to a friend on Discord? What about waypoints? Friends? Alts? You may also ty to use /back. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. Kind regards, ~Isa
  3. What Server are you applying for? Oblivion Voltz 2.0. What is your In Game Name? KvbUnited, IsaNova, and my nickname on Voltz 1.0 is IsaTheFloofyCat. What is your TeamSpeak Name? ~Isa Nova (KvbUnited). But since the TeamSpeak is down, my Discord ID is; ~Isa Nova (KvbUnited)#5708 What is your time zone? UTC +2, CEST (Central European Summer Time) When are you available? Every day, on Telegram, almost 18 hours/day. My username there is @KvbUnitedTheFloofyFelinekoHybrid. In-game, anywhere from two hours to six hours a day. I usually work in the weekends. What time can you dedicate to the server on week-days and week-ends? Almost every day, for multiple hours a day. Probably four hours/day on average, if I'm not busy working, or studying for classes. What is your In Game Rank? (/ar check rank and donator rank if applicable) My AR rank is BloodGuard. I have played for two days, eight hours, and 25 minutes as of writing this. I got another 1500+ hours (King) on Voltz 1.0. When did you first start playing Minecraft? When did you start playing modded packs and Voltz? (Answer in depth) I started playing Minecraft a couple years ago, when Tekkit (classic) was still a huge thing. I remember the old Technic launcher, the original first, and I also remember the update that brought ender chests, beacons, and the inventory makeover. I've originally bought my account to play modded Minecraft, and have sticked to doing so for 89% of all my playtime. If I had a playtime counter, it'd be in the thousands of hours. Probably passing 10.000 hours (I currently have over 1.600 alone on Oblivion Voltz 1.0). I've been staff before as well. Trial-mod, Moderator, Admin, Head-admin, ChatMod & Helper. I've also been on a specialized team in finding dupes. So I'd say, I have the staff-experience to join a team! Besides, most staff here is already familiar with me. I shouldn't have to explain that. <3 I've played more modpacks than I can keep track of. And despite playing mainly modded, I know my share of Vanilla. Less of modern Vanilla (that brought the Shulker Box and stuff), but all the mechanics, I've mastered. All information will be checked. That's fine with me. :) What experiences do you have moderating a community or game? (Answer in depth) As you can read above, I've been staff before. To be more specific, I've been a Trial-mod, Moderator, Admin, Head-admin, ChatMod & Helper. I've also been on a specialized team in finding dupes. I have been staff on this network, on this server before. I resigned by my own decision. I know how to work Trello, I know my way around the modpack, and I know my commands. To add to this, I currently staff the Voltz 1.0 server as a Moderator. Have you ever been given a staff role on a server before, and if so, what did you have to fulfill? Mostly monitoring chat for offenders, but I've also been on a specialized team for finding dupes (as mentioned before), and I've kept my eye on players looking for potential dupers/x-rayers when I was a Admin for a different server. (TPPI). I am currently a Moderator for Voltz 1.0. Why should you be a Helper? Why do you want to be a Helper? (Answer in depth) I love helping people, and recently I've been missing doing that. I don't think I 'should' be a Helper; this should be decided by the team. One of the most important things in a staff team IMO is communication and toleration, and if someone would rather not have me on their well-functioning team, then I'd rather stick to reporting players and helping players on my own account. I also know a lot about the mods used for Voltz 2.0, and about the server (network). I already oftenly answer people's questions and try to help them anyway. A staff position would allow me to mean more for these people. Who are you? Please read my introduction! What is your Age? I am over eighteen years of age. If the exact number is required, I will tell you in private. Thank you for understanding. <3 What are your strengths and weaknesses? My strengths would include: My vast knowledge on Minecraft mods My desire to help people; especially if they are feeling bad. Putting a smile on someone's face really brightens my day. My dedication to projects, and games. I tend to stick to one thing rather than switching around. (been playing Minecraft for nearly every day since the first day I bought it) My tolerance is also pretty high on criticism and (negative) comments If something interests me, I'm a fast learner. Overall I'd consider myself a nice person, but only if you are as well. I'm decent with IT I speak multiple languages Pixelart Perfectionist. No block will be off. My weaknesses would include: I'll get on a short fuse if you'll talk negatively about LGBT matters. This is serious. I can't stand it when people talk (beep) about me or my friends relating this topic. I will argue with you. And you won't be on my good list. My desire to help people. I might get too personal. I care about good people. Time. I am literally the worst when it comes to time, estimating when something is done, or being on time (for meetings). I can be stubborn. Perfectionist. May take it too far. Additional Information (optional) Thank you for your time. I hope I can join the Voltz 2.0 staff team next to my role on the Voltz 1.0 server! Kind regards, ~Isa
  4. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: EdgarP01 Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: Invalid punishment. (I did not say anything wrong, I should not have been punished for what I said.) Date of Infraction: 2018-12-03 Summary: Before the first screenshot, I said "Thank you Edgar for doing what Slim is incapable of.". I got a warning for this from EdgarP01, which was already kind of unwarranted due to the situation. Context: A player was repeatedly asking (=spam) why he was banned from the Discord, with IIISlim not giving any response whilst being active. After me personally telling him multiple times to make a forum post, I got annoyed and used two (2) swear words. Tame ones, at that. He got angry, IIISlim picked it up, and gave us both a 'warning'. Not going in on the spam, or the question of the player. Unfortunately I can't provide a screenshot of this anymore as it was too long ago, so my report is (mostly) about the latest punishment that EdgarP01 gave me; that resulted in a mute. I strongly believe a mute was unwarranted, and EdgarP01 should not have punished me. Please look at the screenshots provided, and what lead up to the eventual mute. The screenshots should further speak for themselves. Note: Please read from top to bottom. They are in chronological order that way. Evidence of Infraction: https://imgur.com/a/1S5J5bg
  5. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: mas12349 (nicknamed Cypher) Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: mas12349 warns Defuse for warned for saying "EDGAR". The warning is stated to be for overuse of caps, but Defuse only capitalized the single word. The only word he said, in that sentence. mas12349 also warns, and mutes VapeIsLife69 for, the second offense being, disrespect. This seems a bit harsh also. I provided a screenshot of this as well. Date of Infraction: 2018-11-27 Summary: The screenshots should speak for themselves. Note: Please read from bottom to top. They are in chronological order that way. Evidence of Infraction: https://imgur.com/a/Cf77WKP
  6. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: mas12349, Psychopathic_Pie (nicknamed Cypher, and President_Pie accordingly) Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: mas12349 seems to refuse to punish Psychopathic_Pie. He has gotten more 'warnings' than I can count, but mas12349 absolutely refuses to mute Psychopathic_Pie. Psychopathic_Pie continues to agitate me but keeps getting away with it. They also appear to be good friends, and seem to be basing together coincidentally. To me, and some other players, this highly seems like favoritism. Date of Infraction: 2018-11-26 Summary: The screenshots should speak for themselves. Note: Please read from bottom to top. They are in chronological order that way. Evidence of Infraction: https://imgur.com/a/g5xki73
  7. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: Psychopathic_Pie Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: Tricking people into using /suicide 'leaderboards ' yet again, even though he has been warned to not do it again before. He also admits to remembering that an Admin told him to stop doing it. Date of Infraction: 2018-11-24 Summary: The screenshots should speak for themselves. Evidence of Infraction: https://imgur.com/a/2OGztkd
  8. Death messages As of right now, no death messages, besides beheadings, are being announced. For many occasions (and bragging rights, of course) it'd be useful, and more fun, to see (some) death messages being announced. I'm suggesting to next to beheadings, also have death messages for named item kills to be enabled. Faction familiarity Enable the prefix for faction tags, or faction names. It'd be easier to see who's part of what, would bring faction familiarity to new players, and simply adds a bit more flavor to the chat. If an entire faction name would be considered too long as prefix (which would be unfortunate, but anyway), consider enabling faction tags as prefixes. I'm pretty sure that the plugin we use for factions already has built-in functionality for this. It would also involve people more with factions in general, and hopefully, would stimulate them to participate in factions the way they're meant to. Right now, seemingly, no one much really seems to use factions as anything besides a 'grouping' of players.
  9. Oxygen sealers are disabled. You cannot use them. They were disabled due to causing lag.
  10. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: SequoiaValuin Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: Illegal matrix. Date of Infraction: 2018-08-11 Summary: The screenshots should speak for themselves. This matrix was at a space station spawn with a anti-personnel module killing people that spawned there. I'm also pretty sure other players had warned them for it not being allowed, but they didn't remove it. I took out said matrix when the player logged off.

  11. Server: Oblivion Voltz Player you are reporting's IGN: Tyerex12345 Your IGN: KvbUnited & IsaNova Infraction Committed: Illegal matrix. Date of Infraction: 2018-08-08 Summary: The screenshots should speak for themselves. This matrix was overlapping (and was placed in) a region where it isn't allowed. Evidence of Infraction: https://imgur.com/a/Z8o6ieG
  12. /tprandom actually works as it was intended. It teleports you anywhere between +6000 and -6000 on any axis. That's how it was configured and that's what it does. What you're looking for instead is a change in the plugin, presumably to expand on these distances. And that's likely not happening. /tprandom locations aren't specific locations. There's no "atleast 500 blocks away from any /tprandom location". You'd want matrixes to only be allowed 7000 blocks out or further. Which seems unreasonable if you put it like that. You might not like these matrixes being on low coords but there are ways to avoid them. Or, just dump your stuff before using /tprandom. And before you comment that sometimes /tprandom spots seem to be very specific, there's certain conditions that will make the command prefer a certain spot between the set coordinates. But it's *random*! Hope this clears up some stuff for you all. Kind regards, ~Isa
  13. This is a suggestion for the Voltz server. So, everybody reading this has probably been to /warp trade at least once in their life. And if so, I think we can all agree-- it's ugly, crammed, and quite old. Sure it "get's the job done", but it doesn't match spawn or any other public space. It's outdated. It's small, and really not that pretty (no offense). Meanwhile, everything else has been getting updates. A new spawn, a new arena, new staff boards. A new shop. It feels like /warp trade is missing out on some well-deserved love, even though it's quite a popular place. So I'm suggesting we hold a build competition for a brand new /warp trade! Thank you for your time, ~Isa

    @ColossalTroller, you should probably make your own forum post here. Seperate issues, seperate posts. ~Isa

    No, it has never been done. I would assume the same way like the giveaway happened; maybe with books at /warp trade? I'm pretty sure they have all voted in favour of the map reset, yes. I actually wrote this post because I wanted to give the other side a chance. I've only once of all the times I got to vote been in favour of the map reset. And that wasn't this map. As MAHJINKA said, I'm heavily against resetting the map currently. And so is my faction, mostly. The alt-problem is fair. But considering they did the giveaway in-game, I feel like they had a way to work that out proper. +1 Thank you for your answer and your considerations. This answer, even though it might not be what I was looking for, is satisfactory. I heard that you guys were taking in account who voted, as in, active players, and former active players. This is basically just as good if not better. All I wanted is a equal chance between the choice of resetting or not, and I feel that other map-reset-votes haven't gotten that equal treatment with how many players that voted seemingly didn't even play-- or only for the first week of the reset (which doesn't help anyone). And thank you for keeping this thread open so I could type my response(s). Kind regards, ~Isa.
