Thank you for joining us on the VoldaCraft Server!]]>
GPS, Temperature sensor, Some sort of Carbon PPM sensor, Light Sensor, Altitude Sensor, and Pressure Sensor. I’ll likely add more, this is all that comes to me for now.
If you’re interested in the Weather Balloon project, it would be helpful if you donated! You wouldn’t believe the costs of launching a balloon!]]>
1. Aperture Science
A creative world with plots, permissions to switch between creative and survival, sticks shoot portals, blue wool makes you jump, orange wool makes you run fast, basically, the details are here: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/portalstick/pages/elements/
2. Survival Anti-Grief World
We’ve had complaints of people getting raided griefed, or both. I think a lot of us just want to play peacefully. I am considering adding a second world, where griefing isn’t allowed, pvping isn’t allowed, factions are only peaceful, and lockette would be there. Lockette would also be removed from the normal world. The inventories would be seperate.
Tell me what you guys think, and contact me if you want to build your own version of Aperture!]]>
Well, 2 days ago, our power went out for about an hour and a half. About 4 hours later, I awoke and turned on the server, but I forgot to open Minecraft, so I had to wait for 6 hours before I got back from school to run it.
Then, sometime last night, the server rebooted itself to perform a disk check. And it’s been at 51% since I started writing this post -_-
Hopefully, when I get back from school, it will be done and I’ll turn the server back on.
Update: 20 minutes later, just hit 52%]]>
I’m still thinking about whether or not I should do this, so there is no guarantee.
I’m considering launching a space probe! It will not actually be going to space, but it could get close! Depending on which balloon I use, I could get up to about 32 miles, or within the stratosphere.
I’m going to try to pay for it with money donated for that specific cause. This is in case it lands in the ocean or a lake, or something goes wrong. It shouldn’t be too much of a misfortune if it dies.
It will be controlled from my house, via a wireless connection to my arduino uno, which will be the main controller for the sensors.
The point at which I get stuck is being able to send bits and bytes to and from the arduino. Standard wifi will not work (after all, 32 miles up!)
The following sensors will be put on:
- Barometer $20
- Thermometer $5
- Accelerometer $30
- GPS $40
- 1-5 cameras
Post in the comments if you have any ideas for more sensors!]]>
You may or may not have heard of hosting companies. Well, We’ve launched our own, for $10/gb/month, with a free MySQL database and a 40GB hard drive!
I already have a few (very) satisfied clients!
Thanks to everyone who has signed up!

I had to bring the server offline! Why? Because Minecraft 1.4.6 came out, breaking all my plugins! The server will be up very soon, as I’ve updated the major plugins, other than permissionsEx and Multiverse.
I tried to ignore the bugs and keep the server online, but as soon as I discovered that people could get creative items into the survival world, I stopped the server and waited for the update of my plugins.
Did you have a good Christmas?]]>
I am currently hosting for a single person, he brings in the money I need to invest in more servers. He is glad that I’m his host!
I’ve also decided to make a change to the plan I offered. A mysql database will be provided, free of charge!
So, the current plan is $10 per month per gigabyte of RAM, with a free mysql database. You can set up as many slots as you want, but you may notice lag if (for instance) you allow 300 slots on 1gb of RAM. Company shares may be available soon, I haven’t decided on that yet.
I will be creating a page (a button on the menu up there ^) for VoldaHost.
