Sign up for Streetmix+ (beta)
Streetmix is an ad-free, spyware-free, and free-to-use platform that makes street design available to anyone in the world, and you can help us keep it that way! When you sign up for Streetmix+, a membership-based monthly subscription, you can help support our hosting costs and ongoing development. In return, members also get exclusive access to new and improved features in Streetmix!
Streetmix+ is in early beta. We are still experimenting and building out the infrastructure to make membership seamless and easy to join. Please pardon our dust and we thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks!
Here’s some of the features that are currently available to Streetmix+ members, with more to come!
- Rename street segments
- Change environmental backgrounds
- Export images without watermark
- Export images at print-ready resolutions
- New segments: double decker bus, microvan, and autonomous shuttles
- Unlimited streets (Technically, everyone does have unlimited streets already, but this creates some data storage problems on our end, so we need to start setting caps. We’ll do this in a fair way. Stay tuned for more.)
- Coming soon: Member-only Discord community
Streetmix+ members will also be able to help us prioritize future features to come!
You can sign up for Streetmix+ membership through multiple platforms:
OpenCollective is a platform where individuals can support open source projects such as Streetmix. Both monthly and yearly memberships are available. We prefer OpenCollective because funds received through this platform can be used by Streetmix immediately, compared to other support platforms.
Streetmix+ membership does not activate immediately (this is something we’re working on!). If the e-mail address you have at OpenCollective matches the one you use to log into Streetmix, we will be able to activate Streetmix+ within one week. We process membership activations on Mondays.
If you do not use e-mail login, or you used a different e-mail address on OpenCollective, we will reach out to you to ask for Streetmix account information. For fastest results, you can e-mail us proactively with a copy of your payment receipt and your username on Streetmix. Please note that if you sign up using a guest account or an organization account on OpenCollective, we will not be provided with your contact information, so you must e-mail us first. To claim an already-created guest account, you can follow these instructions.
Organization accounts are a specific account type on the OpenCollective platform, not an account type on Streetmix. Streetmix+ features will still be assigned to an individual account on Streetmix. If you subscribe with an organization, please reach out to us with that individual’s Streetmix account details.
If you have previously been an OpenCollective contributor, we can credit your account for an equivalent amount of time. Please contact us at email@example.com with the information above.
Patreon is a great option for members that are already supporting other artists or creators on Patreon.
Streetmix+ membership does not activate immediately (this is something we’re working on!). If the e-mail address you have at Patreon matches the one you use to log into Streetmix, we will be able to activate Streetmix+ within one week. We process membership activations on Mondays. If your e-mail address is not found in Streetmix, we will reach out to you on Patreon to ask what Streetmix account you would like to be upgraded to Streetmix+. If you do not hear from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have discontinued memberships through GitHub Sponsors due to low usage. We thank our users who have supported us through GitHub during this beta testing phase.
Coil support is discontinued. Coil shut down its products on March 15, 2023. We encourage all Coil users to migrate to OpenCollective or Patreon.
Confirming your membership
When your Streetmix+ membership is active, you’ll see an icon beside your user account name, like this:
If you have trouble accessing Streetmix+ features, here are some troubleshooting tips.
If you have signed up for a Streetmix+ membership but have not been contacted about activating it, please e-mail us at email@example.com. This may happen for the following reasons:
- You have been a contributor since before August 2022. We are slowly reaching out to existing contributors to set up access.
- You may have signed up for OpenCollective using a guest account. Unfortunately we have no way of contacting people with guest accounts. In order to verify that you are subscribing, please set up an OpenCollective account.
- Please allow up to one week if you have recently signed up. We appreciate the patience!
