    Here are a few ideas i've been kicking around for weeks now and I'm going to show you how they work in the best way I can.

    CubeCraftGames Lottery
    This would work similar like most lotteries nowadays, you can buy a lottery ticket at the hub and it would give you a random number between 2 certain numbers, those numbers being 0 and 13,000 probably. a ticket would cost, let's say 100 points. you can only buy one.

    At the end of the month, it tallies up the points.
    Ticket Purchases x 100 = Total Points given away
    then it Picks a random number between 0 and 13,000 and voila. Whoever has that number gets the winnings. How much would you win? a lot.

    Well first of all I can't predict how many people would actually buy a ticket so let's just make a possible situation, the max amount of people allowed on the server is 12,000, so let's say that 6000 people bought a ticket.
    6000 x 100 = 600,000 Points, that's just HALF.
    but the odds of winning are 1/6000

    Note: Doing these to RANKS only would be against the eula I'm afraid.

    Multipliers
    I was thinking of personal multipliers that only apply to you and nobody else, as such you can't sell these specific ones for real life cash, so make these really expensive for some other form of currency, not vanity points or normal points, perhaps you could win these in the lottery or in competitions.

    Buying Maps
    All new maps that gets released could be purchased for points, this could be a cool idea, not all the new maps but maybe just one, it would add an extra use for points and it'd be interesting to see how people respond.

    Plots
    Buying extra plots would be a good addition to spending points.
    You get a max amount of plots to buy and they'd be really expensive, because we can't have lots of players going around with many plots and it'd be a bit hard on the creative server.

    Any questions would be great.

    I like the lottery idea.

    I don't like the idea of point multipliers for singular people, just buy one or wait for somebody else to.

    I don't understand the buying maps idea.

    And I guess the plot idea could work.

    I like it :) Doesn't add anything big to the server, but gives you a reason to log into it everyday :)

    Lottery: Nice idea.
    Multipliers: Could be cool.
    Buying Maps: Eh... whats the point of this? It would just be annoying, as maps get full quickly anyway.. it would fill up the board.

    I love the Lottery too, well done :p I also Like the Multipliers one, but buying maps could really just cause some trouble I think, and some people might bomplain with useless reasons
