Plans for a more interactive Twitch Channel w/bot commands


#1

So I’m working on adding a bit more substance to my twitch channel. I’m currently setting up a rank and currency system. (The currency is called Cow Pies, or CP for short) So far here are the ranks and the methods of currency and what I plan to do with the currency.

Ranks and Titles:

0 - 249 Points = Stray
250 - 499 = Calf
500 - 999 = Livestock
1,000 - 1,499 = Oxen
1,500 - 2,499 = Cow
2,500 - 4,999 = Bull
5,000+ = Battle Cattle

Point Breakdown:

  • You currently earn 50 points for following.
  • You earn 50 points if you conduct a ‘raid’ on my channel with your channel’s population.
  • Hosting me you get 10
  • Every 15 minutes you get 4 points by watching me live. You get an extra 1 point on top of that (For a total of 5) if you are active and chatting. So this equates to 16-20 points per hour during live streams.
  • Every 60 minutes when I am offline you get 4 points just for being in that channel. Basically leaving the tab open when I’m offline.

Some of the things I intend to do with my currency include:

  • Playing sound effects when I stream (Such as trombone womp womp) when I fail, or kool aid’s “Oh Yeah” for something awesome.
  • Spending a large amount (Maybe around 1k, not sure) to suggest a game for me to play during my alternate game days.
  • Betting on matches
  • Purchasing raffle tickets (So you can have more tickets to try and win with, though there is a cap, I don’t want to scare non regulars from participating)
  • Fling ‘poo’ at other players. This will give a funny message and the recipient will retain 25% (Or so) of the poo that was flung. This allows newcomers to be pelted with ‘poo’ when they join the ‘Herd’ for a quick boost in rank/points.
  • I also intend to have double/triple poo days for extra special streams.

I’m wondering if you guys have any comments/suggestions/tweaks. My goal is to try and get some more interaction in my channel with those that wish to use this currency system.

I absolutely love it. Except I have a question and a thought. My question is how do we earn the CP? Then my thought is can’t people idle points by leaving the tab open?


#3

I don’t mind people leaving a tab open. It helps viewership anyway. I was thinking about awarding more points for people being active, like 3 points every 15 mins instead of 4 and a +2 bonus instead of +1 for being active. So a 40% increase on points for being active, but I’m not completely sold on that just yet.


#4

Oh I thought those were for the Rank system. Ah well I still love it.

Do followers already earn those 50 points?


#5

I’m not too sure tbh. If not I can manually add them as needed.


#6

I’ll be honest, I didn’t know that any of this was possible and I am kinda blown away! :cow:


#7

I’m already finding a few limitations (Mostly the flinging poo at a specific person, instead you can have a ‘poo’ fight in which it’s random who lives and gets rewards) But the rest just needs a bit of tweaking :slight_smile:


#8

It’s insane that all of that can be tracked and programmed. Or maybe not, I am a total noob when it comes to twitch.


#9

It’s actually very similar to the Evolve randomizer I made. It’s basically a glorified spreadsheet that is updated in real time and can spit out things with macros/commands.


#10

Suddenly it all makes sense.


#11

insane, complex, amazing, interesting, and excitable that’s how that makes me feel. Maybe a clap too


#12

Wait, so people can’t just unfollow and follow again? Or does your score reset when you unfollow?


#13

It only counts once. I’ve already had people who previously follow me try to do that.
