Make plat as really rare drop
This way people who can't afford membership would be able to get plat too. Maybe 1% of killed lawyer cats should drop plat instead of gold.
Sorry guys! I have to charge for plat so I can pay the rent. That way I can keep working on the project and keep providing updates with new features, content, and bug fixes. Thank you for your understanding :)
Since the ZOO was made, even 0.1% is too much, maybe 0.000001%.
Good luck in killing A HUNDRED MILLION lawyer cats!
not even nessessary to make it a drop. just decide on a value of platinum in terms of gold. make everything that is purchased with platinum, have an equivalent price in gold.
If i were trying to set a price, i'd get the metrics on how long it takes an average player to get in game gold, and compare that with the average hourly wage of a teenager. In other words, the average minimum wage in the civilized world. compare that to the real world cost of the platinum in the game, and you have the approximate gold/platinum value. make it so platinum is a slightly better deal, so people will still spend real money on the game. and the rest can still get what they need out of the game, given enough time spent on it.
1% would still be too high of a drop rate, considering the spawn rate of lawyer cats. And you don't want people who did pay to feel jiped, also the game needs people to buy plat so it can STAY free for everyone else.
Maybe 0.1% chance... so that out of (aromatically) every 1,000 you kill you get 1 plat
1% chance would be a drop out of every 100 (Aromatically) which would be much too high.
