Hi all,  I forgot the password for my old account, but felt like getting back into the game.  My old account was xx_chips_xx, which should be what my forum account is tied to.  I'm Chops96 now.  Could I possibly get my rank updated on survival?

Thanks.

1 million would be quite a reach. 2-4 million wouldn't be feasible. There are so many mods in this pack that are fun, but don't lead the player to money. By making the prices so high you are making the main focus in the players' mind to make money instead of have fun.

Who's going to continue working on a Dino theme park when someone else is taking advantage of all of the expensive ore possibilities around the nether.

Another problem with having people focused so much on money is the slow failure of the economy. This happened in tekkit as well. Though tekkit had the equivalent exchange mod to help speed up the deterioration of the economy, it would just happen at a slower rate here.

The server wouldn't be as full of witches fighting each other or dinosaur parks, but rather a bunch of get rich quick ideas.

I do like the idea of having to work for the rank instead of just staying online. It will inspire people to work on their own and become self sufficient, but I don't think it needs to become that much of a reach.

You didnt suggest your prices

I did a few posts above, but I've had a change of idea.

Member
Suggested Price: 10,000 EMP
Geologist
Suggested Price : 185,000 EMP
Biologist
Suggested Price 375,000 EMP
Physicist
Suggested Price: 750,000 EMP

With this rank up price list, it's based off of a proportion of money to hours played (except for ranking up to member, that's basically just a given). This still makes people work for their money, but it doesn't make it impossible for them.

I'm sure if there was some way to check out the median worth of each player, excluding manager+, you would see that it is still quite a bit away from the 750,000 EMP price.  If it is a lot closer to 750,000 EMP than I thought, you can still raise the price and change the proportion and get a nice balance between the ranks.

There are very easy ways to make a fortune on b-team, but they aren't utilized that often by players. Even when the lucrative options are made, people spend their money in other places. It's much more about having items than having money. A rich person can have 10,000 EMP, but a ton of charged energy conduits.

 I think 500,000 EMP for physicist is a pretty solid reach for the majority of players.

Also, it was a common problem on the tekkit server for someone to rank up to member then try the rank up command again and have their money taken away.  Would there be any check for the plugin to make sure you can't do that?

Happy birthday Fear! :cake:

The Hawaiian islands, Guam, and other smaller pacific islands would be cool for the bottom left. Then for the bottom right, maybe Madagascar? It's a giant island and will certainly get rid of a lot of the water!

Almost 5 years, and several servers later makes this humble beginning seem unbelievable.

Word on the street is that you can still make power flowers, the mod is just called Project E instead of Equivalent Exchange. 

And Carpenters Blocks is an awesome mod.  It should totally be added.
