So I had an idea for an SMP that would be an very interesting concept that had been running around in my head for a while. i call it the Money SMP (or something along those lines)
The main idea is that our “main protagonist” used to live somewhere and they were pretty spoiled and did whatever they want. And based around the CC’s skin that something could be anything, I’ll use my characters skin as an example that they like to make things cause they’re kind of an engineer but only to help himself. and somehow someway they end up wrecking or destroying a large part of the place they were living in and end up getting kicked out, again for example my charecter would have ended up building something that could have exploded in the wrong area or something. but for whoever the person is the reason could be entirely different they just need to have destroyed a lot of stuff in the process And to come back to the place they need to pay back the place they now used to live in. but instead of thinking it’ll be a small amount they find out it will cost them a very large sum of money (The idea in my head was 500,000,000 but the price could be even higher it just has to be a large amount of money that would normally be impossible to pay back.
The protagonist should be for lack of a better term, not that good of a person, they’re lazy, they’re arrogant, they’ve been spoiled all their life so they dont have certain experience with stuff they dont wanna pay the money back but are only doing so they can live in the area again. They aren’t C! dream levels of bad but they have no intention of doing things the hard or honorable way. so they decide to open an SMP with the intention of “Helping people” (Really they’re just scamming people out of their money) And after the first person shows up and somehow they end up helping them unintentionally more and more people come to the server.
Now the protagonist has not intention of properly helping people and wants to spend as little money or recourses as possible so they try to do the bare minimum of what they other people want and also care more for finding money then anything else (Like non lore streams where they’re just mining is still technically lore cause they’re finding resources). But over time as the character slowly grows as a person and learns more about themselves and the characters around them they could give a little bit on money and resources to other people and actually puts effort into the help they were asked to do (and go back to old jobs and tries again).
As i was thinking about it i realized that there would absolutely be a ton of math potentially involved. Cause the protagonist wants to keep track of how much money they have, (the Streamer could have a little thing off to the side that tracks how far they are to that goal maybe) and there would need to be a way to put a cost on items like diamonds and emeralds, So the SMP would definitely have to be run with a lot of math skills who can do quick math on the fly (One of the main reasons i dont think i could do this SMP.
As for the server itself in terms of looks i think it doesnt really matter that much i think? like obviously the jobs that the protagonist is being asked to do will be completed as quickly as possible and look terrible. like say one of the other characters wanted help with their house roof the protagonist would just find random stuff in their inventory or laying around and just place it on the roof and say its completed. so for a period of time while the protagonist is still kind of a dick certain parts of the smp will look worse then others.
This is as much as ive thought up of so far but feel free to message me if you have questions that i could answer or if you wanna take the idea!
