    basically this is to allow those with ranks + no ranks to be allowed more /sethomes without having to purchase a rank or delete homes as a rank up is no longer possible, for example, me, being a supreme I can have up to 50 /sethomes, which I have used up, and with EULA I can no longer purchase legend, which means I am practically being 'forced' to having to delete a sethome that I have, so if we could be able to buy sethomes with spare meebles we have it would be great for the cit's (who we all know have 1 sethome that sometimes they don't even have!) and those who need that spare sethome or a few, I really think this would help the people who cannot afford a rank or would just like to stay a citizen, as they are new and don't really know the gist of meep, and it would help people with supreme/legend, in which we have a command that gives us a list of what sethomes we are able to purchase, whether it be +1 - an extra 50 sethomes. which would help people stay, as 1 sethome for a cit can be really annoying for those who venture around wild a lot and they don't have /back also

    I like the idea of this. The only concern with that is that in this form it takes away value from those who already have ranks. However, this could be counteracted by having a cap for each rank. Say, a citizen can purchase only a few homes, while a Legend could purchase dozens. Just for the Meeble drain value, I see the price being many thousands of Meebles. I'd suggest making each sethome an additional 100k, meaning it is still better to get the rank, but not limiting for those who already have the rank.

    Why donate when you can buy homes?
    -1, 50 is PLENTY of homes for the highest current rank.

    Of course, us cits should get 200 homes because citizen is literally the best rank.

    Anyway, vex has 50 homes already, but yeah lets add more homes how do you even remember which ones which?

    Anyway, I am good with all of my 5 homes so I think you just need to learn how to delete stuff, like Hillary did with her emails

    Why would we remove one of the few perks remaining that make donating attractive?

    because, I would personally like to have more homes than i have, and I wasn't saying remove the one thing that donators have, by simply giving different ranks more or less homes to purchase, for instance, citizens can only get a further 5/10 sethomes. meaning in order to get more they will have to donate

    An additional 5- 10 homes means even less donations to premium and exclusive. And trust me, we NEED what we can get.
    I find I dont actually use most of my homes. Go through them and dekete ones you dont use.

    A combination of caps per rank and high prices per home can still make buying a new rank desirable.
    Perhaps an increasing price per home? Eg. first home costs 20k, then the next is 50k and then 100k, etc.
    I would definitely buy one or two more homes with this system.
    +1

    Also, on the issue of rank desirability, I really think that all ranks need a lot more desirable perks or maybe a decrease in price. If I were to buy Elite right now, in my eyes it would just be a donation to the server as I don't really get much in terms of in game perks out of my $40.

    I think this would be a really good idea because when a citizen 1st joins they generally go exploring and will want alot of homes, but not want to spend $10+ on a server they just joined. When citizens have maxed out their homes they would most likely understand the ins and out of meepcraft and would be more likely willing to spend money on a server because they understand it.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if that would work as well, because I like the idea of having a set price for every home, for every rank.
    I think that's balanced enough.
    If we lower the price of ranks, it then makes those who bought it at the old price feel like they had been cheated even more.
    The way I see it, it does not remove any perks, but instead increases that. Sethomes were one of the few bonuses any rank could keep, so adding the ability to purchase even more is like giving them an even bigger advantage, so long as they are willing to play enough to earn the money. Therefore, you are enouraging higher ranks to play more by unlocking additional bonuses for their rank.
    Indeed, we do need those, which is why we need to encourage players to play the game more. We can't get any possible donors if citizens all get bored and leave. The longer we can keep players on the server, the higher the probability is of purchasing a rank.

    If this were to happen, 20k is way too low. Since it's going to be a permanent rank, it should at least cost 150k

    Of course, my examples were just to show how it would work.
    In terms of actual price, I think that the first one or two should be cheaper to buy, so the first home might be around 100k and then periodically increase by 20k+.

    We shouldn't be making homes cheaper. What we are intending to do is making more homes available for people in need, so they should pay at least as much as they would for a rank.

    Im using prem as the example because I have prem (I have it, but I am a citizen btw)

    Prem -> $20 -> 500k~600k
    4 new homes (5 homes - 1 from cit)

    600k/4=150k

    That's what I think to be the right price

    this seems like a really good idea. Would remove some meebs from economy and basically make the game a bit more playable for the lower ranks, which entices them eventually to support the server as they enjoy it more and play more often.

    On the basis of that yeah 20k would be a little too short considering its a permanent price to have to keep a sethome, if we do have this idea on being imported i think that a high price should be good, and if we were to buy more the price would be significantly higher over time, and with the issue of less donators we could have that the homes be higher priced for them, or that they can only have a set amount of homes available to purchase for them

    +1 If it can add an incentive to spend meebles without becoming a huge detriment to donations, which realistically would only happen if the price to buy additional homes was set very low with no capacity to fill.
