Donations (INFO)
« on: August 22, 2009, 04:50:05 PM »
I've recently opened paypal donations so that in-case you feel generous you can donate to The Ice Cave.

Donating will keep me motivated to keep running The Ice Cave and help ease up the monthly fee. Keep in mind that running the website and servers cost a lot of money, a lot of my free time goes towards keeping The Ice Cave running and improving upon existing assets.

I in no way want to rip you off your hard earned cash, so I try to justify the prices as much as possible. Since I'm a strongly against players having noticeable advantages over other players, all of the benefits you can get as a donater are merely cosmetic or provide you some small advantages like Reserved Slots.

Of course you are always welcome to donate more then the amounts seen below, once donated please post in this topic to tell me what you want in exchange (if anything).

The prices are as following:

€ 5,00 Premium

Gives you access to the reserved slots for 1 month.
Allows you to have a custom join message and sound.
Allows you to have a custom disconnect message and sound.
You will receive all the future rewards that are yet to come.
My eternal gratitude


€ 2,00 Reserved Slot Access

Grants you access to reserved slot for 1 month.




Additional fee's

€ 1,00 to change your join or disconnect sound, both at the same time will cost € 1,50 (Donate for anything else and it will be for free, aka donate  € 2,00 for reserved slot access and I will do your sounds along with it, IF requested at the same day.)
A pay what you want system to keep your join/disconnect perks after 3 months. In short, your join/disconnect sound will last 3 months after every donation no matter how little/much you've donated. This will serve as a pruning system to disable sounds of inactive members from being transferred to the client.


How do reserved slots work.


Currently reserved slots work over all of our source servers.
Reserved slots will allow you to join the server even though its full by opening your console and entering "connect server.theicecave.net:possible port"
In the case of the TTT server, only connect server.theicecave.net is needed. You can bind it like this:
bind f12 "connect server.theicecave.net"

Reserved slots are extremely useful if you want to bypass the cue and instantly join the server.



How does the connect sound/message work.


For the connect message you simply need to post in this topic what message you would like to see upon connecting to the server.
For example you could have "Have no fear NedStar is here"

For the join sound you can pick any wav/mp3 file and select up to a maximum of 20 seconds from that, disconnect sound up to a maximum of 15 sec. Alternatively you could tell me what part you want ripped from a youtube movie or any other public downloadable source.

Update.

I believe you now actually hear the join sound yourself. At least the last couple of times I've joined I did.
The only time you might not hear it is when another sound is triggered. If for example 2 people join at the same time, one sound will beat the other. Or if a round restarts as this resets all sound.

Also added disconnect message and sound. Unsure about the guidelines of this but probably the same as connect.

Hiya, donated a mere 6 euros but I'd rather donate something than nothing at all. Premium content will do me nicely, with a bit of you are a pirate as an intro & outro
:>

Thanks a bunch, Sheep.

Heeeey Ned :D

Didn't realise I couldn't upload MP3 files so I hope they're ok like that. Obviously they're too long too but yeah, the first 20 seconds of each is fine.

Also for messages:
