Short of writing my own gold system, is there a way to increase Dota's maximum gold cap?
If not (which I suspect is the case), is there any clever way someone's thought of, of doing it differently :)?
Nope, just rewrite it, including UI.

You can always do the "lumber" method (like in EBF), it's usually not as efficient as gold but it gives the game unique aspect.

Alright, thank you. I think I might have just been a little hopeful.
I'll share what I was thinking: Keep Dota's gold, but add a manager of sorts to handle the overflow (store in another var), thereby keeping most Dota implementation, but still allowing you to have 'more' of it. Just make sure nothing costs more than 99,999 gold though...
