I've done some reading on old forum posts regarding crates, and their limits and the introduction of the Income Cap as well, and there seems to be plenty of systems in place to prevent people from focusing on crates and crates alone for income to the point that the daily limit seems relatively redundant at this stage.
I am inquiring on this mostly because it can be OOCly difficult to make time for crates as an income source, especially when your priority is RP. If crates are a big part of my income then I may have to choose to do crates instead of participate in random/scheduled RP as my OOC schedule demands. I imagine this would be especially impactful for people who don't utilize membership pads for pay their rent.
I think there is OOC value in granting flexibility to the player by allowing them to weigh RP over crate income more readily by changing the daily limit to a weekly limit.
I don't want to change the amount of potential income one person can make via crates only that the 'come back tomorrow message' be changed to a 'come back next week' message and being allowed to run 7 days worth crates as time allows.
I do understand that there would be cases of people doing their weeks worth of crates in one go, but that would put them out in the open for a longer period of time and more at risk to thieves or muggers, so I think it would balance itself out.
Thoughts? I am sure I am missing one important piece of this puzzle as to why the daily limit is necessary!
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
