Heey,

Mod Philip told me it's possible to raise max cash, even with java. So i made this suggestion.

Last year Jagex told us about 1% of the players has 4B+ (And i bet they count phats as max cash instead of their street value so it's even more).

This means looking at the hiscores, over 20.000 people have more then 4b (And many more have over max cash).

All those people have problems storing their cash.

Also with partyhats being 3-8 billion we can't trade them through the G.E which makes it a lot harder to get the real prices of the items.

I suggest we update max cash to 100B to keep it future ready. (Or 10B if you think the economic impact would be too big).

Also 10B + needs a new colour, same as
1-99999
,
100k - 9999k
,
10M - 9999M
,
10B - 100B

I suggest making it light blue and displaying it like this:
10B - 100B
(And a new and longer cash sound when you put it in trade :P).

If items over max cash start at max cash they will be billions off the real prices. It will take a very long time until it has the right price in the G.E (This can be used by scammers). That's why i think Jagex should look at the last 10-100 street trades and use that as the new price.


The ninja's always look for updates that benefit many players and i think around 40.000 should be enough :P

Plz support :D

We are investigating ways to deal with max cash, however we're in the very early stages of that and changes could be a long way out.

Hey everyone,

Just spoke to a few people regarding this, and we have no immediate plans to change this. We've never felt the need to change it, the 2147m cap is something our Engine and this isn't an easy change.

Hope this helps

It is something we would like to do, but it is actually a fairly big task for engine. With our focus on banks at the moment and this not being a particularly pressing issue, it will likely sit on our backlogs for quite some time.

I want to adress a point raised by
Mod Balance
on reddit.

He wants to add a new currency. Let me explain why this is a bad idea and not needed.

- We have spirit shards. We don't need a new currency.

- We want to be able to trade items above max cash in the G.E. If you do this with a second currency. EVERY item will show 2 values. That is super confusing and will possibly create lots of new scam methods. Just imagine your tradescreen showing 2 different currency values. No thank you.

- That new currency will cause many problems. Like when every item shows 2 values. What happens if that item is over max cash and you want to check the GP price (you can't).

- Adding a new currency is more work then just raising max cash. You will have to adjust every system in game to show the 2 different currency values of every item. + extra server cost to update them daily.

Please stop lobbying for a new currency and give the people what we have been asking for for many years! Raise max cash!

The good thing about this is that you wouldn't have to add random merchers to your friend list and look for days till you actually find someone who sells for a reasonable price.

Support! Long over due. I was actually thinking about this a couple of days ago.

Another benefit of this is those users who use the companion app to trade, which is made difficult by having more than max cash (since there is no inventory).

Aside from convenience to players who hold over max cash, this also makes it easier and SAFER to trade items valued above max cash -- of which there are eight items now.

A compromise would be to make spirit shards and GP easier to exchange at their flat 25:1 rate (say - an exchange non-player character at the GEs in Varrock and Priffdinas), and crucially the ability to buy things on the GE with spirit shards. (I'm not sure, from a practical point of view, whether this would be any easier than raising the cash limit though.) Ideally a way to exchange / use both simultaneously on the companion app would be nice.

The problem with this, is that the max cash isn't a random number they picked. It is the maximum value of an integer (2^32). Ranges from -2147M to +2147M

I guess they could add a new type of currency, which you can buy for 100M and can be redeemed for 100M, this way you can have 2147M Gold coins and 2147M X 100m currencys?
(Much like players do now with spirit shards) Just a thought.

Mod Philip told me it's possible to update max cash in java. I don't want a new currency like old school has, i hate that :/
