Today we have changed three small (yet big) things that I decided to just bundle into a single post.
The first new thing is an additional 3 donation ranks for those who love money. While the actual new ranks are not different in what they can do, they do, however, come with some extra dough. The three ranks "Donator (+extra money)", "Donator+ (+extra money)" and "VIP (+extra money)" give, as their titles already give away, more money in addition to the money that the rank would already give. This is great for those who simply need more money to go with their ranks.
The second change is that we now allow Swedish crowns (SEK/KR) as a payment next to our current USD ($) payment currency. We added this for two reasons: Most of our current players are Swedish and it makes it much more practical to pay in SEK for them and the second reason is that it actually saves a little bit of money for the donator. Paying dollars with crowns means that the crowns has to be converted to USD which costs a tiny bit of money. But now that we allow crowns, that won't be a thing anymore.
Another good thing that I almost forgot to mention is that the prices are actually lower than before. The rise of value of the USD had changed the price a little. E.g. $30 isn’t 200kr any more like it used to be, now 200kr is only about $24.30. So we adjusted that now so that the prices are correct again, and cheaper.
The last thing we changed doesn't have anything to do with donations. It has to do with us having blocked fire, lava and water in survival for a long time. The main reason we originally decided to block it was to prevent griefing. But we do understand that it can be quite annoying not being able to use those items so we have decided to try and allow them again in the hope it will work out good this time. The items are however still blacklisted in creative for obvious reasons and only [Trusted] players are currently allowed to use them.
