AlexINF suggested a while ago setting up a Patreon to help fund the server. Here's some ideas on how that could be implemented:
- Daily Plat: Each day you login, you can use a Patreon stone. The stone will check your plat level, and if it's less than 5p, it will increase it to 5p.
- Extra Plat: Each consecutive day you login and use the Patreon stone, the daily plat level will be increased by 1, to a maximum of 10p. Missing a day would reset it back to 5p.
- This would allow you to buy one or two plat items each day you login. Unused plat would not accumulate (you can't use the system to have more than 10p at any given time).
- Daily Plat & Extra Plat (see above)
- 9BitMMO access
That's obviously a ton of value, so there might be some economy effects. However, given how few people buy plat, I think the number of users who sign up for it would be fairly limited. This system might only be used by one or two players, but would allow them to replenish plat trading shops.
So I'm curious what people's thoughts are on this system, if the reward tier levels and rewards sound right, and if there's one or two players who would want to sign up for it. At this point, it's just a rough idea.
