I want to ask what the community thinks the direction Eclipse should take when it comes to actual monetization.
Paid Plugins will work the same in both cases, we will ask 10% or 30% of the money plugin authors make and put it toward the site.
Paid Engine with Paid Plugins
- The Gold Edition
of Eclipse Worlds will be a perk of Gold Member
. This will have benefits that will build up over time. It will cost $20, a one time fee.
- We will add a Silver Member l
ater on, similar to Nin Online where you can earn the benefits by being a veteran of the community that contributes to it such as referring people or making tutorials on the site.
Donation Goals with Paid Plugins
- We ask a set amount of money and put 50% or more of it into the project, the other 50% goes to the site costs.
- **Donators **will be able to download the **Gold Edition **of Eclipse Worlds. Gold Members that already exist, will be moved to Donator group. Gold Member group will be disbanded.
As a side note, members that are outstanding will get these benefits in both such as Member of the Month. We also will be experimenting with Donation Goals to see how well it works out, we want Eclipse to be the center of 2D ORPGs and something that is taken seriously.
