    You can't specify custom amounts for admins with the plugin, it's the same amount for all players.

    Admins donate their time and patience to deal with your typical whiny kids on servers, just give it.

    And 700 isnt anything. If you just dont use them.

    I currently have roughly 1800 points, and that's without using any for months. You get them really fast.

    So, we have mostly agreed that we want karts and the only problem left to discuss really is prices. Well darkregen pointed out that you get points really quickly, if this is the case then we need to decide how long you have to play to be given such an awesome ability. Should they have to play for a few months? Or should it be a few weeks? If we have a low point costs many people would have the karts but is that good or bad? If we have it that you nee, say, a months worth of points then not many people would have it and again, is that good or bad? My personal opinion is that the /kart command should be fairly expensive as it is a permanent unlock. Maybe, 2 months worth of points? Surely we should reward those who have stuck with fog for a while, give them something that they can show off about, something to say "I played for a while on these servers, look what I can do" So in conclusion, I believe we need the activity points variation to be about 1000-1500 points. Or, we could take a different approach, rather than buying the ability, we could make it a low price but you can only use it once. So maybe 500 points and you can use it as long as you want, but as soon as you stop using it you have to pay to get back in?

    I've not really read the thread fully, but if you're talking about it only being on fun map like trade/idle and the likes, you can't even earn points in Achievement/Trade.

    500 Per use is ridiculous...

    Just a suggestion, I don't really know how quickly you earn points so I just put 500 cuz it sounded right.

    It is only quick to grind point on certain servers. Some servers it is harder on, so make it around 500 to compensate. I have only gotten around 300 in the past 3-4 months because I haven't played on ones that are easier to farm points on. You have to think any of our players might want it and to some 500 is expensive.

    I think Donators and Admins should have access to the command with admins being able to toggle it for other players.

    I can see where he is coming from for mariokart where if the admin could suddenly toggle it for everyone and start a massive bumperkart race with dirty tricks.

    Admins shouldn't be able to give it to other people. I have a few reasons as to why not:
    1) Surely karting should be a reward for donating/being an admin, not just given to the friends of admins etc.
    2) As spartan says, imagine Mario kart an admin does /kart @ all... a lot of people go to Mario kart to kill each other and It would probably cause many people to leave.
    3) It's more effort for n0:name to give admins the ability to pass it on rather than having the same command for donators+admins.

    I am just waiting for a stable kart plugin to be made, all currently existing ones have either sound issues or critical exploits.
    The command will be restricted to donors and people with 750+ AP only.

    I know you have limited time, but would it not be possible for you to get the version with the least bugs, and try to fix it? Or would this be out of the question?
