The Comeback, but at a cost

DONATE HERE: http://usercp.breakpointservers.com/donate

So as you may or may not know, Somepotato and I have been working on bringing back the Garry's Mod servers and are nearing a closed beta. After a lot of discussing on why we had to shutdown, we have come up with some changes that should give us much more sustainability.

Our old server was 100% dedicated which gave us free control to do whatever we wanted with it. This came at a great cost at around $140 a month. For over a year and a half we were able to keep up with the bill, but it got to the point where almost all the regulars had VIP and we were receiving little to no donations. Once a player had VIP, they had no incentive to ever donate again which, in the longrun, hurt us greatly.

After much discussing we came up with a new donation system that would be monthly. Now before you freak out we have added a little twist to it. It's 100% customizable.

Here's how the new donation system would work.

A required $1 starter fee
The $1 will grant you active VIP for the month. This gives you the golden star and the Top hat.

You will then be able to chose from many other VIP perks that cost between $0.25 and $1.00. Now remember, you don't have to get every single perk, you can pick and choose what you want.

Currently our pricing chart looks something like this..

Note: This is not final and is subject to change.

So for example, if you wanted to donate for VIP and only wanted the voting power, you would only have to donate $1.50 for that month! If you wanted everything, you would have to donate $8.50, which is $1.50 cheaper than the previous $10 donation for permanent VIP.

After your month period you would be reverted to Inactive VIP where you will have a silver star next to your name, but all of your perks will be gone.

Originally we wanted to wait to bring this information public, but Somepotato and I thought it would be best to get an opinion before we go live with it. We tried to give each perk a fair price for what it does for you and hope it is balanced to everyone's liking.

So what does everyone think of the theme? Me and somepotato have made a lot of modifications to it.

I even made sure things look good on an iPad.

We are no longer a Garry's Mod community
Posted by: Bkacjios - 09-01-2013 02:24 PM - Replies (33)

As you may or may not know, we are shutting down our Garry's Mod community. This means that we will no longer host Garry's Mod servers. This is mainly because most of the staff here are no longer fond of Garry's Mod and have moved to other games, along with the fact that the server costs were pretty expensive.

Jetsurf decided to get a really cheap VPS that will allow us to continue hosting these forums and mumble. Mumble has already been switch over to our new server and as you can see, I'm still working on the forums. I figured since that we're no longer a Garry's Mod community, I might as well make the forums as general as possible. I have also switched to a much better forum software that is really easy to mod and make changes to, so everything here is currently subject to change. Because of this, I figured I would just start the forums fresh and clean, mainly because this is new software so porting the old forums posts and users would just be too much of a hassle.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to post them here.

Thanks,
- The Breakpoint Staff
