As i think most of us know, as of now the only way to get more residences it by buying gold or diamond "status". I think it would be really cool if regular players where allowed to earn 1 res by purchasing them with empire credits, or from being on the server x number of hours. I also think, to be fair to people who have gold or diamond, if gold and diamond can each earn one more res. Of course you could only earn one res, if you could earn as many as you wanted, that would be crazy.This would also help with the amount of unclaimed reses. At the moment smp6 has 15 unclaimed reses, and many more that the people have been off for weeks. The newly claimed residences could also help make the live map look much happier.
