    i just played on a mg server where every minute u play there u get a credit. after racking up tons of points, u can type !store and have access to a shopmenu which allows u to purchase various things such as trails, skins, hats, etc. The objects aren't cheap but that's the whole point, set them to 15000pts and ppl will play all the time. I usually cant get into that server becuase its always maxed out at 40 ppl. I say give the admins their choice of one object for free, so regular players can witness how cool they can become -_-

    i like the idea but i have a feeling theres some technical reason we couldn't do it.

    And yeah, I agree that sounds pretty cool. Or if you survive a round, or make a kill during a round, or do any of a number of things, you get points as well. I think that'd be badass. If you know of the script or can get them to pass it our way, that would be great. Also, can you PM me the ip of this server? I wanna try it out. :razz:

    i mean on the server that i played on, it worked fine. no lag or anything. I think if we could get a hold of that script it would work fine.

    No trails, never put trails in in this fashion, ever. EVER EVER EVER.

    But hats and skins? I'm on board.

    Fuck hats.

    Trails yes.

    Skins yes.

    Seems this would make far more sense in a DR server but you'd have to modify how points are tallied.

    It is a good idea. Currently working on other projects but I'll look into this possibility when I tie them up.

    No trails though, it may seem like a dandy idea with 20 people on the server, but double that and it's laggy as a motherfucker. not to mention ugly as shit.

    I don't see why a feature like this wouldn't be added to all the servers :biggrin: , not just the MG.

    only thing I'm worried about is this taking away from the value of donator... if players know they can just PLAY to obtain skins and shit then why pay for donator? Sure they can't get certain shit like reserve slots but other than that skins are a big part of why players even want donator... then again if this helps retain higher player counts... it could attract more admins, so eh.

    Well how about you have "premium upgrades" that only donators and admin (or even tiers between the two) have access to purchase, thus there is even further incentive to pay. Kinda like fly for fun.

    That's why we don't give everything to the public, allow donators to earn more.

    i think the hats is a good idea, I'm not sure if there's a hatmod for css, i know there's one for gmod (basically identical). Reserve skins and stuff for donators and admins. Sassilization (gmod community) has this kind of hat thing on there server and it works very similar to what was suggested here, except you have to WIN to get points.

    Well leave sknis for donators and leave trails out if you do, it ruins it.

    There seems to be quite a lot of support for this. I think this idea may do quite nicely for the new DeathRun (and possibly CSS:grin:M) servers we will be putting up soon as well. Not just for MG.

    Will donating also get you points?

    Donators could earn points at an increased rate perhaps.

    Trails would work if you made them cheap and only last a round at a time metinks.
