VIP System
« on: August 30, 2020, 11:27:11 PM »
Running OSC costs money (it takes a powerful dedicated server to make history!) so to pay the costs there is a reward system for players who make OSC a reality and are rewarded with VIP hours and there are additional rewards when contributions reach certain amounts.

Having VIP hours results in the following benefits:
Spoiler: ShowHide

  • Jetpack with '/jetpack' for convenient transport. (Can't be used in LV or when wanted and some other restrictions)
  • Clicking recover in the F2 vehicle GUI will bring the car straight to you except when wanted.
  • Wear a variety of hats and other cosmetic items with '/viphats'.
  • '/vipskin' to access skins including 5 (not skeleton) VIP skins see this which is from here
  • '/walkstyle' - Change your walk style without going to a gym
  • Faster re-spawn after dying.

Do bear in mind that players with VIP are treated the same way as normal players and if you break the rules the same punishments apply, so make sure you've read the rules.

Donator Level for if you reach the following amounts:
Spoiler: ShowHide

  • Donator Level 1: $5 USD
    Ability to repair vehicles as if you had the the mechanic job (press X, click on the car, then click repair).
    Vehicles that you repair will get 50% fuel instead of the normal 10%.
    '/hitme' command to be able to place a hit of $50,000-$500,001 on yourself with your own money and by doing so agree to give players a chance.
    '/d message' for donator chat.
    Spawn with armor, excluding when re-spawned to a turf.
  • Donator Level 2: $10 USD
    Everything listed in level 1.
    Access to the '/rt' command (rapid transport) which saves you having to go to a rapid transport marker.
  • Donator Level 3: $20 USD
    Everything listed in level 1 and 2.
    You have VIP benefits even when you have 0 VIP hours.
    Some barriers can be placed with '/barriers'.

Possible VIP transaction amounts and times you'll get:

$2 - (2000 x 1  = 2000 hours) (83 days)
$4 - ((2000 x 2) * 1.05 =  4200 hours) (175 days)
$6 - ((2000 x 3) * 1.05 =  6300 hours) (263 days)
$8 - ((2000 x 4) * 1.1 =  8800 hours) (367 days)
$10 - ((2000 x 5) * 1.1 =  11,000 hours) (417 days)
$12 - ((2000 x 6) * 1.1 =  13,200 hours) (550 days)
$14 - ((2000 x 7) * 1.15 =  16,100 hours) (671 days)
$16 - ((2000 x 8 ) * 1.15 =  18,400 hours) (767 days)
$18 - ((2000 x 9) * 1.15 =  21,600 hours) (900 days)
$20 - ((2000 x 10) * 1.2 = 24,000 hours) (1000 days)

Notice that there is also a bonus multiplier between 1 and 1.2 this is because if you send more money in 1 go, you get a bonus.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions (Read these BEFORE posting a question)
Spoiler: ShowHide

How to transfer a VIP hours?
Go in-game and press F7 to open trading interface.

Can I donate for permanent VIP?
If you have Donator level 3 then you will get VIP benefits while having no VIP hours on your account.

Does VIP time run down only when I'm online?

Can I donate any other way but with PayPal?
No, because there are no other websites that can be used to accept money easily.

What is PayPal?
PayPal is a website which allows you to transfer money online without giving away card details and such to other websites as PayPal handles the payments. It's free to register and send money, the receiver pays the fees.

PayPal isn't accepted in my country, how do I donate?
If you can't use PayPal in your country unfortunately you won't be able to donate. Sometimes new countries are supported so check their website to see.

Can I get donator level if I've made loads of small donations?
Yes, but it's better to donate more in 1 go as you get some extra VIP hours when you do.

What do I do if I donated but didn't pm Soul or Scary my account name or what I entered was wrong?
I will send an email to the address your PayPal account uses asking for the right account name. Alternatively send me a forum PM saying what your in-game account name is or send me an email (paypal tells you my email) and try to include the email address you donated from.

Is it possible to donate with my mobile phone credit?
No because so far all the sites I've been linked to that do this are all unsuitable for OSC.

I can't donate because something on the paypal website doesn't work
Make sure you've got an up-to-date web browser and or try another web browser (firefox, chrome, IE, etc)

What type of credit/debit cards does PayPal accept?
According to this paypal help article they accept: Visa / Delta / Electron / Mastercard / Eurocard / Maestro / American Express and debit/bank cards that have the Visa or Mastercard logo on them.

If I get Donator Level does it last forever?
Yes, Donator Level does not expire, unless you sell it to someone else in the F7 trading interface. It is separate to VIP hours.

Do I have to be online to be given VIP hours or Donator Level?
No. When you do login you will have a notification but also you will see your VIP hours and level in chat box on login.

Somebody claims they can't send the money directly and want to send you money then you send it to me, I even trust them, what could go wrong?
A lot can go wrong, do NOT send money on behalf of somebody else. Yes, I said do NOT send money to me that was sent from somebody else because they're probably trying to scam you.

What does having Donator Level on the forum give you?

How much of my currency is needed for x USD?
To see how much of your currency you need go onto google and in the search box enter: currency to x USD and it will tell you the current exchange rate though this may differ slightly to the one PayPal uses. So for example if I wanted to know how many EUR I needed for 50 USD enter: EUR to 50 USD or just go on a website like this:

Can I donate less than $5?

If someone donates for me but they fill in my account name when donating, will I be able to transfer the Donator Level?
Yes. If the account name entered when donating is yours that is treated as YOUR donation.

Does skin shader and car shader also count towards getting Donator Level?
Not Donator Level or tag colors.

How to get a custom vehicle or player skin? (AKA a shader)
See this topic: vehicles and skins (If the link doesn't work the shader shop is currently closed) Scary handles this system on his own, that means you can only ask him about things.

When sending money it says something like the transaction can't be completed and it doesn't say why, why?
PayPal accounts that don't have a debit or credit card linked to them may have transaction limits that for some reason they won't tell you about, they'll just give you a useless error message.

Can you tell me how much I've donated already?
Yes. Send me a forum PM asking me to check your total donations and include your account name.

Only accepting PayPal - Sorry, if I could accept other things I would. PayPal will automatically convert your currency into EUR (€)

Note: You will get extra VIP if you do 1 large transaction rather than sending loads of small ones:

5% extra for $4 and $6
10% extra for $8 $10 and $12
15% extra for $14 $16 and $18
20% extra for $20

1. Click on this link to open a list with all donating options.

2. Choose your contribution and click order

3. Click order with paypal. Login to PayPal. Click Pay now.

4. Send me a PM with you e-mail adress that's used for the paypal payment and your ingame account name.

5. Now you need to wait between 0 and 12 hours for me to activate your VIP. If you haven't received it within 12 hours you can contact me (click here to send me a forum PM).

If you want to give VIP to others you can go in-game, press F7 and put up a trade, make sure to mark the trade as private so only the player that you chose can see it in their F7 trade list.
