    This is a informational post explaining the functionality of the AP system and listing the prices of all available effects/colors.

    As you may, or may not know, all* our servers use a activity-rewarding-system called 'Activity Points'.
    We try to reward people who are actively playing and coming back to our servers with several buy-able or auto-unlocking benefits.

    * Will be explained later

    1.) How does it work?

    You'll get points for actively playing on our Servers, to be more exact, you get one point for each:

    10 minutes played on the server
    10 kills made
    10 assists

    If the player count is below or equal 50%, a bonus will activate, from which you get thrice the amount of points (so 3 instead of 1).

    2.) What are the benefits?
    Unusual Hat Effects (150 - 480/1500** points)
    Paint your Hat (25 points each)
    God mode on round end (auto-unlocks if you have >= 1500 points)
    Team balance Immunity (auto-unlocks if you have >= 3000 points)
    Reserved Slots (auto-unlocks if you have >= 6500 points)

    ** for Flying Bits

    3.) Which servers use the system?
    All ourservers use the system, except:
    - Both Idle servers (achievement_idle)
    - Trade/Idle
    - Achievement/Idle
    Those only have a "light" Version of the plugin, which means you won't earn any points, but you can still do purchases.

    4.) Unusual Effects & Colors Pricelist
    All colors are 25 points.
    Effects:
    Nuts & Bolts, Green/Purple Confetti, Massed Flies - 150

    Bubbling, TF2 Logo - 160
    Steaming, Smoking - 170

    Circling Peace Sign - 180
    Oribiting Fire, Oribiting Planets - 190

    Power Surge, Overclocked - 200
    Electrostatic - 210
    Blizzardy Storm, Stormy Storm - 220
    Memory Leak, Phosphorous, Kill-a-Watt - 230
    Sulphurous, Searing Plasma, Terror-Watt, Frostbite - 240
    Eerie Orbiting Fire, Aces High, Dead Presidents, Bonzo The All-Gwaning - 250
    Vivid Plasma, Cloud 9 - 260
    Cauldron Bubbles, Miami Nights, The Ooze, Electric Hat Protector, Magnetic Hat Protector, Voltaic Hat Protector - 270
    Misty Skull, Disco Beat Down, Arcana, Stare From Beyond, Ghastly Ghosts Jr, Haunted Phantasm Jr - 280
    Haunted Ghosts - 290
    Circling Heart, Spellbound, Amaranthine, Molten Mallard, Morning Glory, Death at Dusk - 300

    Green Black Hole - 310
    Flaming Lantern, Chroptera Venenata - 320
    Knife Storm - 330
    Green Energy - 340
    Purple Energy, Poisoned Shadows, Abduction, Atomic, Subatomic, Galactic Codex, Ancient Codex - 350
    Time Warp, Hellfire, Darkblaze - 360
    Stormy 13th hour - 370
    Sunbeams, Something Burning This Way Comes, Demonflame - 380
    Scorching Flames, Roboactive, Nebula - 400
    Anti-Freeze - 410
    Harvest Moon - 420
    Burning Flames - 440
    Cloudy Moon - 450
    It's a Secret to everybody - 480

    Community Sparkle - 1000
    Flying Bits - 1500

    5.) Commands
    !ap or /ap (silent) to see your current amount of points
    !benefits or /benefits to buy/equip effects/colors & see how many points you need for the next auto-unlockable

    If you have found any bug or glitch within the system, please report back on this Thread!

    Before people start saying the effects don't work, you have to either respawn (kill yourself) or switch between another class and back. Maybe add it to the chat message like you did with the original unusuals plugin?

    You are not a Donor, and the AP System is disabled on Ach/Idle.

    Great job there =D Thanks! And btw, once you bought the Effects/Paints do they last forever or do they disappear once you leave the server (this is probably a dumb question but whatever)?

    Hello, I think the point shop is glitched or something

    Unusual Hat Effects (150 - 480/1500** Points)
    Paint your Hat (25 Points each)
    God mode on round end (auto-unlocks if you have >= 1500 Points)
    Team balance Immunity (auto-unlocks if you have >= 3000 Points)
    Reserved Slots (auto-unlocks if you have >= 6500 Points)

    Here you can see, that you need like 6500 points for a reserved slot, etc.
    In-game it's 1500 points for everything. That mean's If I pay 1500 points for a reserved slot in-game, I get it. Everything is 1500 points, so it will be really easy to get all of them. I think this is a glitch in the pointshop.
    This is what pops up ingame:

    Unusual Hat Effects (150 - 480/1500** Points)
    Paint your Hat (25 Points each)
    God mode on round end (auto-unlocks if you have >= 1500 Points)
    Team balance Immunity (auto-unlocks if you have >= 30 Points)
    Reserved Slots (auto-unlocks if you have >= 1500 Points)

    Really weird.

    Have you tried to use the reserved slots? And I luv my connection, it shows the serverts, but can't ever connect to them, so I have to use "Connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxxxx".

    And Downy, n0name always screws. Either you or up

    The reserved slot system clearly states that you have to use the console to connect to the server, an example for trade >Console Connect 176.9.0.44:27015. It will then connect you and let you join if you have the perk.

    Ehm well, I think I got a problem out here. I just bought "Burning Flames" Unusual with APs, and I tried to attach the effect to the hat I was wearing. Well, nothing changed, I still had my normal hat. The server I was on is Hightower one. Just wanted to know if there's something wrong with me or the server :3

    You have to change class in order to apply the effect.
