    Points? Or you mean coins?
    What function they serve?
    With those coins you "buy" stuff, in fact, you use them to download stuff like Simtools itself, like plugins for Simtools, downloading attachments from other people etc etc..

    You earn coins by being active on the forum, reading posts, writing them, each action has defined amount of coins to receive - well the list how you can earn coins is very big:

    - Registration: Assign points to new users.
    - Login: Assigns points for each daily login.
    - Transfer: Calculate tax and fee when a user transfer credits to other.
    - Happy Birthday: Assigns points to user which have birthday.
    - Interest: Growing the value of user's credits over time.

    - Complete/Incomplete Profile: Assigns credits when a user has 100% completed his / her profile.
    - Upload/Delete Avatar: Assigns or remove credits when a user upload/delete avatar.

    - Poll Get a Vote: Assigns credits when a user's poll get a vote.
    - Thread get Sticky/Unsticky: Assigns or remove credits when a user's thread becomes sticky/unsticky.

    - New Post: Assigns credits when a user create new post.

    - Like/Unlike a Post: Assigns or remove credits when a user like/unlike a post.
    - Post get Reported: Remove credits when a post of user get reported.

    Some of those stuff are not configured to receive coins, such as receiving coins for viewing the thread, then it will be too easy to get them.

    But basically, participate in the interesting topics, write some opinions and you will manage to get enough coins to download stuff.

    When things get hard and you gone broke, somebody would jump in with some donation :)

    Ahhh, those points :)

    It's also some kind of rewarding system, but a bit more sophisticated. You don't get them for each post, or download, etc.
    Points are awarded when a user reaches the set criteria, like post count, days registered, likes received etc..

    This point system is by default part of this forum type and here is the list of actions and points awarded:

    https://xenforo.com/community/help/trophies

    You will get this amount of points for given action, if @RaceRay didn't set them differently.

    That's the explanation for your 3 to 8 jump, you've unlocked this action:

    Keeps Coming Back - 5 points

    Hi,
    at the moment I'm trying out many stuf so i need different Plugins. I like the coin system, because the users are more active. But i have some Problems with it.
    Last month i spend 250 Coins to get the upgraded RBR Plugin. Now this month i got a cheap copy of Race 07 and want to try some hardware dashboards. Now if I want to download the plugin i have to spend 250 coins again. So is there another way instead of downloading all game plugins at once, which will be need much time or did i have to spend 250 coins for one week download time everytime i want to download a new plugin?

    At the moment i have enogh coins do download the race07 plugin, so no big problem.

    You can download more than one game plugin, what your coins purchase is time limited access to the download section.
