Altis Contributors

After discussing with a couple of staff members, and talking to multiple people in-game I have spent some time creating this "company" named Altis Contributors. Essentially what this is, is a platform for people with maybe a bit more money, which they might not need and donate it to people who are in much more need, for example a player who is trying to do runs with a boxer truck, we could help together upgrade this to a Tempest, or  HEMMT. There is no set amount for people to donate, you can donate anything from 100k + and of course you do not have to donate, it is simply your choice. After filling out the form and donating, I will contact you to collect the amount of money  you have donated and buy what is fitting for the individual I come across, each person we find will most likely have different needs. If someone needs a truck, I will escort to the truck shop.

Form to donate: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeHH8pND248mZ7gdwLQT4AOrmthzqBo4QlxziTh3lh36rUc_A/viewform

Thank you all for reading, and will hopefully talk to you all in the near future!

I've taken time with @CaptainAmerica creating documents, I wouldn't get very far even if I wanted to pocket the money...

As good as it sounds, I think it won't last very long. People will donate in the beginning, but within a few weeks people will stop donating, and maybe a few big donators remain. But we could always give it a try and see.

Amazing! I will contact you soon to collect it, and to add to the point of it not lasting, even if that is the case, I am sure we can still help a decent amount of people!

Loving the idea, BUT, one of the main memories I have from this server is the hobo days, that hard grind from truck boxer to Tempest, all those times getting robbed and finally earning the tempest. I feel like this would take away from that in a sense as they'd in a way, be *given* the new truck.

Other than that, good idea.

They can reject the offer if they really want to! Not like I'm gonna force them! Having said that, I think the majority of people would enjoy a little gift!

Honestly, I would've accepted the gift as a hobo, but that's the thing, they won't realise they missed the greatest part of the climb from hobo to rebel until they realise they have actually missed that whole point.

 

Free money is free money, everyone* will accept it.

Just from the donations we have received so far, we have managed to help 3 people with new trucks... I would consider that successful!

It's an insult to players that made it through without any help.

How is it an insult? Not one person who has come across this so far, has considered this an "insult". I am simply helping people I have found that need help, not forcing them. As a matter of fact, I was a player myself who made it with no hope, did iron runs to advance rebel, If someone else came up with this idea I wouldn't find it "insulting" at all.

I like your idea. But instead of helping them by giving a truck, you could rather protect them doing their run. 

1. They have the Tempest

2. Doing Copper

3. Get robbed at Mine/proccesser/trader/road

4. Back on track without anything.

That's what I just did! Found a guy, gave him money for a truck, and protected a run.

Nice idea! I've also filled in the form.

I do suggest that you only handout cash during the sale event, that way you can make more use of the money.

Also, sugar is way more safe than copper.

Thank you! It will go to good use, and also good idea. Will keep it in mind!

Rofl at this comment. I forgot making money as a hobo was definitely a very traumatic experience. Get a grip mate.
