    IMPORTANT Purchaseable Servers

    Discussion in 'Garry's Mod' started by x, Jan 1, 2017.

    A while back we suggested the idea of allowing players to purchase a server to rent.
    Well today we are releasing the first purchasable server.
    Here are the features:
    • Every player will generate 2 point (per round) to the server bank.
    • You basically have full control of the server with the exception of file transfers.
    • You may make your own ranks and sell them if you wish to do so.
    • Enable chattags/scoreboard tags (for supported gamemodes)
    • Able to set adverts and enable your own MOTD
    • Ability to change the server name
    • Etc...(you will be superadmin of the server, think full server control without file transfers)
    Commands:
    • !balance (Displays the current server balance, ONLY for the server owner)
    • !donate <amount> (Donate points towards the server bank)
    • !buy (Purchase the server for 5,000, this will give you a message if it's the server is currently being leased)
    • Type !upanel to open the menu where you can change map,change the server name or restart the server (right click the name of the server and make it persistent if you wish to have it persist)
    • !menu (for administrative commands,for owners and or any staff)
    The server is up for lease for 30 days at a time. If the server is currently not under lease you will be able to type !buy in chat to purchase a 30 day lease. The current price tag is 10,000 REGULAR points per month to keep the server, this may or may not go up as time goes on. After 30 days has passed the system will first check if there are 10,000 points within the server bank, if there is indeed 10,000 points within the server bank it will remove that amount and add another 30 days to the lease automatically. Otherwise the server will default and ownership,server balance, ranks and some other things will reset.

    If you are interested in purchasing the server head over to one of the following servers:
    192.223.24.58:27015

    If you require assistance please PM me on the forum. If there are any errors or bugs please PM me.

    I just checked everyone's points and there's only one person who can purchase the server.

    Here's a dumb question, can we go into debt and pay interest back?

    You could borrow from someone else, we do not loan points.

    You can make ranks(unlimited access to who gets what and immunities), Add a motd (on top of the one we have), access to server logs, and some other stuff the administration gives.

    I'd like to but first I would have to convert my premium points but before that I would have to get my pointshop fixed fucking again and hope I don't lose my golden crate but even before that I'd have to get my trashy pc back from the repair company.
    In short, gmod and life hates me.
    Also I still don't have a start a conversation button for some reason.

    It says I don't have permission to view this page but I'd still have to get my pc back anyway for the "repair".

    Well if you don't try to get players on, you obviously won't make bank.
    In fact if you SOMEHOW make it as popular has our current servers, you'll be rolling in around x3-4 times your investment a month.
    As i stated in a previous post, you could sell ranks (such as your version of premium without the perks of pointshop) to people to remake the points you invested.

    We are giving the owner full control of what they want their server to look like, so yes you can set it up but we will NOT be adding it to our donation system. You can simply charge people and manually add them to a premium rank YOU made for points or premium points. Adding a premium rank will most likely be monthly thus wouldn't be fair for users to purchase something that will expire after a month.

    Question.

    If we bought the server for a month(giving us owner rank for it for that month) then will that mean that we lose our current position on the server we are actually staff on? Will we lose it temporary while we are owner for this server? Or will we keep it?
