I’ve got some nice updates for you Bumfuzzlers that I know you’re going to like! Money, Robbery, pick pocketing and all types of drama unfolding! Read on!
On Modtopia, I’ve had economics setup for a few weeks now, but hadn’t gotten around to putting them to good use. Now, you’ll start to see it getting used in various ways. Let’s review how you earn money before I talk about how you’ll use it.
- Automatically get $5 for 10 minutes of gameplay
- You’ll get $1 for breaking each barrel
- You get $200 on first joining the server
I foresee changes in the future, but it’s a starting point. So how do you use the dough?
At the skin shop, you can trade $50 for Tokens and then you can use those tokens to buy skins and set default skins for your items. The later is really cool. Setting the default skin will ensure every time you craft an item, that’s the skin it’ll get. You can access the Skin Shop by typing /skin shop
I’m wondering if the tokens should be worth $25 instead. Let’s see. Give me feedback!
We now have a store on the server where you can use economics to buy various items! Simply type /s and you’ll gain access to a list of items from clothes to food to weapons. Items will be worth 1 to 6 Reward Points.
I’ve even added a couple of Skin Perk items (only the AKs so far), so you can buy a 2x damage Assault Rifle for instance. I’ll add more Skin Perks for all items in the coming days as I have time. I may even expand this to allow you to buy commands, kits and other items, plus even selling items you have for cold hard cash! 🙂
To purchase, you’ll first have to exchange coins for Reward Points. It’s easy to do. Just click on the Exchange tab and exchange one way or the other depending on what you want to do.
Save your pennies if you want to get those nice shiny goodies 🙂
Now that we have a need for money, we’ll also have the ability to rob each other! I can’t imagine another way to play Rust right? You’ll have the following chances to rob other players:
- 25% chance of stealing items
- 50% chance of stealing money
- 50% chance of stealing reward points
So how do you steal?
- Kill a player
- Attack a player
- Pick-pocket a player (USE key)
Who can do this?
- From Welcome level to Level 9, players have robbery protection
- From Level 1, players have 50% chance to steal on kill
- From Level 2, players have 50% chance on attack
- From Level 5, players can pick-pocket with USE key
This should make for some interesting game play indeed 🙂 Now there’s more reason to kill your neighbors!
VIPs were given the ability to check the ownership on items. This can be very helpful in knowing who is building next to you and also who you’re about to raid. Players can simply type /prod to get information about the owner of the item or building.
Please enjoy Bumfuzzlers! I will update you all when I expand on these features! Please give me feedback about cost and usage so I can improve upon it! Good luck out there 🙂
