Gamocosm is FOSS. Gamocosm doesn't accept payment, no ads, and no tracking user data. I pay for all the development and production costs out of my pocket. I do this because I want to make something useful. I'll accept donations later if costs start being an issue. I intend to keep everything as transparent as possible.
The source code is on GitHub. Feel free to fork and send a pull request!
Gamocosm sets up your server. Digital Ocean provides a bare, vanilla server, so you/Gamocosm needs to install and configure it to be a ready, secure Minecraft server. If you're interested, check this wiki page for more info on the setup.
Secondly, Digital Ocean continues charging you when you just stop a server, because its resources are still allocated. When you stop a server on Gamocosm, it snapshots (backs up), and destroys your server. When you restart a server, Gamocosm recreates it from the snapshot. This way, you only pay when the server is in use.
/home/mcuser/. Sometimes this is shortened as a tilda (
~). Minecraft is installed in
~/minecraft/backups/. However, it is recommended that you download backups (e.g. via FTP) from time to time, and keep your own local backups
Gamocosm works with a lot of infrastructure behind the scenes; a lot can go wrong that is and isn't Gamocosm's fault (we're working hard to iron out our bugs!). Autoshutdown is an especially tricky feature, and we can't guarantee that all cases are covered - especially when thing's outside Gamocosm's control go wrong. As much as feasible has been tested, but you shouldn't rely on it to shutdown your server before a month long hiatus, for example. On the other hand, if you play daily and check your email (for when Gamocosm tries to notify you that something went wrong), it's not really a problem if your server doesn't shut down one day.
Why did we introduce this experimental feature? Because it has been requested the most! :P We - or more accurately I xD - don't have the manpower to test and push an enterprise-grade feature like this. The only way I can polish it is with user feedback and support.
