First of all, I’m not looking to sell staff ranks of any kind, I believe they are something that should be earnt through hard work, trustworthiness, skill to fulfil the position and like and dedication towards the community.
I’m currently working on a roleplay server using darkrp its not what you think I’m only using darkrp for the framework I really want to make it different to all the other servers out there, I don’t really have a name to describe it atm so lets call it No-bullshit rp for now. Bullshit like fearrp etc wont be a rule, I want to make darkrp fun again. We want to have minimal preset Jobs to encourage organic rp where there are structured teams which require players to work their way up. PD Cheif, Captains, Lieutenants, and you have to attend training sessions with higher ups to progress in the ranks. whilst having other less serious elements like meth cooking to help keep it fun and balanced
I have never run a gmod server before publicly before so I’m looking for suggestions on what would make good rewards for people donating to help pay towards the server costs and how much they should cost. Things I would not want to give out for donations other than staff ranks is ingame currency which I think ruins the ingame economy and overpowered donator weapons / items which make it unfair for non paying players. I’m currently looking at cosmetic items such as Car skins for around $5 and things like donator weapons that look cool / special abilities but do the same if not less damage than the free ones [again focus on cosmetic rewards]. however I’m not sure if this is a good idea.
