After thinking for a bit, while farming in WoW, something came to me and i had to ask here.
How would I create Downloadable Content or "Expansions" that are only available to play after paying say, a one time fee of like $5 or something, nothing outrageous like $40 as Blizzard does, just some extra stuff for players who pay for it. This includes raised level caps, access to new questing area's, ect. but are only accessible to the players who purchase the Expansion. What are some ways that i could achieve this goal? I'd appreciate more detailed answers rather than "You can use Paypal for billing." Common Sense, Arbitrary, and stupid comments like that, are a big pet peeve >.>
Also to be clear, i mean this for a game that's well written and WORTH the money, not just your generic BS rpg that sits on the hub most of the time, created by newbs trying to show off skills that they don't have to begin with :P Sorry if i sound hateful, but if you're creating an RPG and are not going to put 110% effort into it, just don't bother...
PS: I'm aware that not very many games would fit into this category, I just want idea's on how to set something like this up, weather connected with a great game or not...
