What are UTCredits?
UTCredits are a new "Currency" added in UnknownTekkit v5 that are earned in-game through things such as voting, and can be used in the donation store.
How much are UTCredits worth?
It depends on what you're wanting to buy with them. For misc. donation items such as in-game money or claimblocks, 1 UTCredit is worth $0.02, or 50 UTCredits are worth $1.00. For ranks and rank upgrades, 1 UTCredit is worth $0.01, or 100 UTCredits are worth $1.00.
Why did we choose to do this?
Because we value ranks higher than we do things such as in-game money or claimblocks. If we made it easy to get high ranked donation ranks without spending anything, there'd be no reason for anyone to donate, which would bring the end of UnknownTekkit rather quickly as we rely on donations to pay for our expenses. (Server hosting, website plan, advertising, etc..)
We're planning on bringing more ways to earn UTCredits in the future, as well as more misc. items that you can purchase in the donation store. (Items possible, including some that cannot be found or made in-game.)
NOTE: You MUST register on Enjin, join the website, and add your Minecraft character to your Enjin account to receive UTCredits! If you do not do this, you will not be able to receive UTCredits!
How do vote streaks work?
Every day that you vote, your rewards are increased by 20% of the base amount. Base rewards are 1 Diamond, 4 Steak, $250, 75 Claim Blocks, and 2 UTCredits (Per Vote). There are additional rewards that are unlocked by holding a longer voting streaks. For voting two days in a row, you'll unlock Energy Condensers as a reward as well as receiving a 20% boost to other rewards. For voting 5 days in a row, you'd recieve 2x the rewards, so 2 Diamonds, 8 Steak, 1 Energy Condenser, $500, 150 Claim Blocks, and 4 UTCredits (Per Vote), and the increase continues on in the same pattern as your streak gets longer!
