Suggested additions to VIP/Donator perks.

I do not support cheaper weapons (we have a gun problem, prices were increased for a reason) neither free housing, that's too much - wealth should be gained through playing, not paying - which is why credit vehicles can't be transferred. Sure, add a "Donator Building" but make players pay for the properties/houses like any other player. 

Let's not push it P2W. 

Yeah, they could just have possibility to buy custom apartaments but they would still need to pay for it.

Custom phone numbers - I'm not very well versed in the current perks for being a VIP / Donator so if this is already a feature please disregard this comment.

Custom phone number, random weapon skins on IMPORTED weapons, a possible VIP global chat, maybe introduce wealth tax and make it so donators avoid the tax a bit?

More money making methods :

Bank heists (for big gangs, or big crews)

guns :

Various guns

 

Things like this should be available to all players.

        One of the things ive noticed while playing on ECRP is the amount of cars that are supported by Rage MP that are not added into the server. Why not make it when someone achieves the Donator rank that they are able to import 1 vehicle that is not for sale to the public, they would still need to pay in game cash for these vehilces and supers would be excluded from this obviously. Also for VIP members have a separate list of cars they can import from a VIP dealership that would take Credits to import. This would diversify the cars a little bit more in my opinion and make more cars available that could be used in RP as well as every day use. I feel that if we made the general stores and gun stores be discounted for VIP that would be a HUGE advantage they would have over normal players. I also like the idea of Donator only clothes or weapon skins. Free parking in the parking lot would be a wonderful thing but still 500$ for lifetime parking is really cheap as it is. Thank you for letting us have an opinion on this and keep up the great work!!

I feel that VIP/Donators should have a "Buddyinvite" system. In which you are able to give a friend VIP for a limited time, in a previous server they had four levels of VIP, which was Bronze, being the lowest, Silver, Gold and Platinum, Platinum being a permanent one. 

It would be given through a command such as /buddyinvite [ID] in which both users then have a cooldown on the buddyinvite, say for instance, the reciever of the invite would have to wait around a day, maybe more or less, and the person giving the invite has a similar cooldown.

Just my two cents for that one.

 

Another thing that could be added would be a VIP/Donator lounge of sorts, which you have a VIP locker that you can get certain weapons from, or maybe weapon skins in the form of the mods. Then possibly even from that same lounge you can chill out and hang with OTHER VIP's, of course it would have to be an NCZ to prevent random robberies during your chill time there.

 

Again, just my two cents on the matter, though would be cool, wouldn't expect them to be added, and I am expecting people to disagree, and some may agree.

What am seeing is people suggesting big ideas which doesn't have any match with the bleets that's why ideas should be replacing the bleets ( something to advertise ) but not discounts , skins and special vehicles. That's why I suggest that they get discounts on weazel news and a command that can be made in the block of weazel news instead of waiting for a worker there for a long time and then money will be directly taken from bank.

I like the idea of:

  • Donator only clothes
  • Donator only weapon skins
  • Gun store discounts
  • Discounted/Free parking at the parking lots
  • Being able to join two factions at once (Mechanic & Clowns for example.)
 

Now this is why I do not like any of the suggestions

  • Donator only clothes
    People will still trade them to each other, leading to a CS:GO type of system. Not necessary and useless. 
  • Donator only weapon skins
    Again, this will create a CS:GO type of system, trading skins with each other and selling them to regular players.
  • Gun store discounts
    Guns prices were just increased with the purpose to decrease the number of players with weapons and the number of pistols that people carry, they are now more valuable. Implementing this would do the opposite of the purpose of the update with increasing the gun prices.
  • Discounted/Free parking at the parking lots
    As Osborn said above, paying as little as $500 for parking a car for an unlimited amount of time is cheap. If anything, it should slightly be increased.
  • Being able to join two factions at once (Mechanic & Clowns for example.)
    People are already abusing the fact of multiple characters, making their characters join let's say LSC and then transferring every penny from your character with a job to your criminal, making it much easier to buy guns for criminals, as money is not a problem because you can just go onto your LSC character and be online for a couple of hours to earn money.

Let's not push it P2W. 

Edit:

We are removing the advertisement system (Bleet), let's replace that with a new advertisement system instead. Create advertising boards around town where VIP / Donators can create advertisements that stays for x time, players would need to walk up to the boards and type a command to browse through them. Perhaps let Donators create 2, and VIP 1. If players want their advertisement broadcasted to the entire server they should go through weasel news.

Edit 2:

The perks of VIP / Donator is already good, and with the Eclipse economy, I do not support discounts of things that are already as cheap as hell. $500 to park your car for an unlimited time at the parking lot? That's like what, 1 bus route? You even get discounted tickets & jail time which IMO is stupid, but I've grown used to it and I accept it. 

Edit 3: 

Custom Phone Numbers, 1-time change with VIP. Could even become its own shop item as well. Gives no advantage over anyone else, and is more of a convenience thing.

TL;DR - 

  • No pay 2 win features are supported by me, no more discounted prices (especially guns) and no free wealth (e.g. properties). Wealth should be gained through playing, not paying.
  • Replace the bleet system with advertising boards/billboards, add a few around Los Santos/Sandy Shores and let VIPs & Donators walk up to these boards and create stationary advertisements that stay for x time. Players would need to walk up to these boards to read the advertisements. If players want to have their advertisements broadcasted to the entire server & on discord, they have Weazel News. Perhaps let Donators have 2 advertisements active and VIPs 1. 
  • Add the ability to set a custom phone number (1-time use) when you first become VIP or Donator. This could also become its own shop item.

- Reduced in game store prices, Perhaps $1-2 off gasoline, 30% cut in general store prices, 15% cut in weapon store prices.
- Cosmetics for weapons ( gold / silver / platinum )
- VIP / Donator Clothing ( Cool clothing from GTA Online DLC's. )
- Perhaps a feature where players who have subscribed to vip for so many months in a row earn a unique vehicle that isn't available from dealerships, ( cannot be sold / traded ) - Vehicles from this thread could be used, obviously not super's but a random sports car every 3 months in a row of subscription would be a nice reward for players.

- VIP / Donator Forum / Discord Subsections
- VIP / Donators can have the ability to change their username on forums
- VIP / Donators channel in discord to have a sneak peak on upcoming updates
- VIP / Donators ability to change the color of their name on forums.
- VIP / Donators monthly in-game party, ( NCZ, Set up script to where only VIP / Donators can enter the door, Free unlimited alcohol, Live DJ. )

Pets for VIPs or maybe even Donators
I'm not sure why they were never added back to the server, I know other servers on Rage that have pets for i.e. a monthly fee of donation points, maybe that's an idea. The restriction would make it so that not everyone has a pet, reducing the impact it has on the server as well.

(Bare in mind that my two suggestions are things that I've seen in place on other communities et cetera. that I think could work on Eclipse)

Extended property inactivity
An extended time before a property (be it a house, business etc.) is deemed inactive and auctioned off. Shouldn't be too big of a difference. Maybe a week or two.

Both of these can be scripted, clothes cannot be dropped, and weapon skin only applies to the player who purchased it.

A tiered loyalty system that encourages people to maintain VIP status for long periods of time.

ex:

  • 3 months in a row - free walking style
  • 6 months in a row - free character slot
  • 12 months in a row - free house slot

Free parking pay ticket that expires when you log off. This would allow VIPs to park their car at tequila-la/bank without worry, but not leave it overnight for safe parking.

The ability to release your vehicle from the impound lot, if you have no outstanding charges/tickets, and have a valid driver's license. (without a police officer present)

Free parking in parking lots sounds fair, maybe something like no charge to sell your vehicle at a car lot (although tax would still be included.)
