    As an FYI, here is the list of perks and the commands to access them.

    Forum perks:
    These are things you get in the forums as a supporter:
    • A bold name
    • Can set a custom user title
    • Access to our top-secret anything goes VIP forum
    • Your name in our list of supporters
    • Extra PM inbox space
    • Our Thanks!


    Garrysmod perks:
    • 50% discount in the pointshop
    • Reserved slot access on Murder servers
    TF2 Classic perks:

    • Reserved slot access

    TF2 perks:


    In addition to the below perks, as a supporter you may also make bookings for a temporary TF2 server you can use to lobby, scrim, pug, or whatever! (This is functional, but some aspects may still be under development ;) )

    EASY WAY:
    type (or bind to a key) sm_admin in the console. Select the 'Supporter perks' option, and pick your poison.

    HARD WAY:
    Commands go in console, or in chat text if prefixed by a !

    • End of round immunity (Not configurable)
    • Reserved Slots so you can get in when the server is full (not configurable). Note there are 2 slots above the 24 player max (for total of 26/24 players), and other players will NOT be kicked for reserved slots... so the server will remain "full" for non-supporters until the player count drops below the maximum again.
    • Custom chat color and tag (Not configurable):
      [Supporter] TeamColor Name: ChatText Blah Blah Blah
    • Autobalance/swap immunity (Not configurable)
    • Access to !radio: Use the commands radio, or sm_radio to access. Turn off via sm_radiooff.
    • Change player colour: sm_colorme <color>, use sm_colorize_colors for a list of available colours.
    • IRC-style /me option for chat: sm_me <message>
    • Ability to play as MvM Robots - See note below. (equip or mm)
    • Prop menu access on our PropHunt server (propmenu)
    • Choose your boss for Saxton Hale/Freak Fortress 2 (ff2boss)
    • Team Preference Selection (sm_preference <red/blu/clear>)
    • Buddy system for scrambles (sm_addbuddy)
    • Custom sprite for supporters during round end (use 'togglesprite' in console to toggle display):
      --If disabled, it will persist either until you die or until the setup/end of round is over.
      --If enabled, it won't appear until you die or the next setup/end of round starts.
    Note: For MvM, robots, there are a few things to note:
    1. Some items may cause weird glitches, since they're made for default models.
    2. Playing as spy, disguising appears to work only to the extent that you become an enemy-coloured robot.

    You become a supporter when you purchase one of our subscription packages - either the $4/mo or $40/yr -> note the $25 one-time does NOT grant supporter perks (http://www.vaultf4.com/link-forums/support-vault-f4.34/)

    This will automatically take your steam account info from the forums (you _did_ integrate your forum account with steam, right? ;) ) and then feed it to Sourcebans which manages our in-server supporter perks.

    Hope that helps :)

    We'd certainly appreciate it if you did, of course, but we understand not everyone is in a position to donate. :)

    The ingame chat says type "!supporter" to open the supporter menu. I spent a good 20 minutes trying it out and nothing, then found this. Damn you! (also, fix it)

    Weird, the bind should work for the chat trigger. I'll have to look into this. :/
    Probably got lunched during the steampipe update.

    Update: I've deployed the fixed plugin, !supporter command should take effect next time each server changes maps. If not, I'll have to manually force through a reload. :)
