I want to donate to the cluster, how do I do that?

You have three options for donating to the cluster

  • Nitrado, which allows you to add runtime to a specific server directly
  • Paypal, which allows you to make a one-time donation or you can subscribe monthly (this can be canceled at any time).
  • Patreon, which allows you to subscribe to a specific reward tier for which you will be charged monthly (this can be canceled at any time).

Click the links above to visit the “How To” pages for each donation option, or select one of the options from the drop-down menu below “Donations” in the main navbar.

What rewards do I get for becoming a donor?

Tokens

  • $5 Boost/Donation: 2 Tokens
  • $10 Boost/Donation: 4 Tokens
  • $15 Boost/Donation: 6 Tokens
  • $20 Boost/Donation: 10 Tokens

Tokens are a form of currency that can be used to purchase the following:

  • Dino Recolors
  • Skin Sets
  • Small increases to imprinting

Dino Recolors

Tokens can be used to purchase recolors for dinos you have bred or tamed.

  • 1 recolor costs 1 token

Any recolored dino will be spayed/neutered in order to preserve the rarity of color mutations.

Skin Sets

Tokens can be used to purchase cosmetic skin sets.

  • 1 skin set costs 1 token

Imprinting

Tokens can be used to purchase imprinting on dinos you have bred or tamed

  • 10% imprinting costs 1 token

Dino Recolors

Tokens can be used to purchase recolors for dinos you have bred or tamed.

  • 1 recolor costs 1 token

Imprinting will only be done on dinos that can be naturally imprinted, and only up to 100%.

Resource Nodes

Donors have the ability to receive certain resource nodes spawned in at their base locations upon hitting certain donation milestones.

  • $5 Water Vein
  • $10 Oil Vein
  • $15 Gas Vein
  • $20 City Terminal

Each donor is limited to one of each node type, at one base location, and nodes cannot be respawned outside of the donor either leaving the map or in the event of migration.  Additionally, certain nodes can only be spawned on certain maps:

  • Water Vein: Any
  • Oil Node: Any
  • Gas Vein: Abberation/Valguero
  • City Terminal: Extinction

Cluster Store Discount

Donors who donate a minimum of $5 will receive a 10% discount in the Cluster Store

If something costs 300 of a tribute item, donors will only pay 270.

Increased Event Rewards

Donors who donate a minimum of $5 will receive a 10% increase in rewards from certain events where resources are given as rewards/prizes.

If the event rewards is 1000, donors will receive 1100.

Rewards are cumulative and will accrue each time a donation is made.

Donations are cumulative, and any amount donated will count toward acquiring tiered rewards.

I donated through Nitrado, but haven’t received my rewards, what gives?

There are two possibilities here:

  1. Soldiercide or Gamer haven’t seen your ticket
  2. You never created a ticket informing anyone you donated

In the former case, be patient and they will get to the ticket as soon as they are able.  Trust us, the admins have made them aware of the ticket.  In the latter case, you need to submit a ticket since Nitrado doesn’t inform anyone you’ve made a donation, so they have to check the boost history manually.

I just donated money through Paypal, but haven’t gotten my stuff!

Like with Nitrado, there are only two reasons why this has occurred:

  1. Sodliercide is currently buried in a textbook and simply hasn’t seen your ticket.
  2. You never submitted a ticket letting anyone know you donated through Paypal

The process is not automated, so Soldiercide has to verify the donation and then manually add your rewards and role, which would explain why you never recieved either of those things if you never submitted a ticket.  If you have submitted a ticket, Soldiercide will get those things to you as quickly as he is able.

I have an idea for a special server I’d like to fund for the cluster, will you do that?

We will administrate most any server idea you might have, but we need to be clear on a few things:

First, unless the community desires the server to become a permanent fixture on the cluster, we will not use donor funds to keep it up.  If you don’t provide funding for the server, it will more than likely shut down.

Second, we will not run creative mode, insta-everything, base-in-a-box servers.  If that’s your thing, there are plenty of those clusters going up and burning out in the server browser.  The rates for any server you want us to run must be at are below the current cluster rates.

I have my own server/cluster, can I cluster it in with yours?

We won’t add any servers to the cluster that we are not in direct control of.  If our relationship with you deteriorates, or you decide it’s a bright idea to snort a line of crystal meth one night, the community will suffer losses and we’re just not going to put these fine folks through that.
