paying for site use?
Posted 01 September 2003 - 08:31 PM
I ask this because i'm thinking of using a pay system for resources. You pay £2 a year and you get to download as many W3D models, voxels, maps or shps as you like. This money would then go to the people who made the resource.
This is just a early thought. Suggestions are welcome.

...But if you did it I would make a crapload of resources for Generals, and all really really high quality stuff. How much USA dollars does two pounds equate to?
Its worth looking into. Maybe talk to some of the people who do that for The Sims and see how they did it.

I mean, someones got to check that the maker gets the money.
Also, people would just go elsewhere or give up. If i'd found that all the community's resource sites were pay sites, no matter how small the amount, I would never have started modding. Simply because I would have had no way of paying (i'm 15). I know how much money you put into this Detail, but I don't think there's really any way of making some of it back.

I know I keep saying this, but the Sims people did it, and its entirely possible to make Sim skins and stuff on your on, and sites like the Well Dressed Sim and the Mall of the Sims have a ton of paying subscribers.

If i realy thought i was going to make money i would buy some advertising to realy spread the word.
The Sims is a familie game where which mums site down and play, mums have no idea how to make a skin so thay buy them. mums don't play Generals.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

by the way, i'd never pay for a website's content... sure I've ordered stuff online, but there's hardly anything on a paysite that I can't find for free somewhere else. Hell I've yet to buy a game with a subscription fee... although SW Galaxies and Planetside are tempting... no matter how much it may be worth it, I've always been a pretty conservative person with my money and I'm not about to blow it just to get some stuff I could make/learn on my own.

and I dount enough people would pay for resources when they could get them for free elsewhere to bother setting the pay thing up.

BTW- Detail, great why to prove the difference between "the sims' and "generals"
