Shop Chests Have Arrived!

This is something that several players have asked for
and I'm pleased to say it's now ready!

Here's what you'll want to know...

  • Shop chests are managed using a single command, /shops
  • Shop Chests do not replace Essentials [trade] signs, you can only have a certain number of Shop Chests in total (as large numbers can cause lag).
  • Unlike [trade] signs you can easy sell items with lore/data values, like potions.
  • Players of any rank can buy from or sell to Shop Chests.
  • Only players of Citizen rank or above can create Shop Chests.
  • Limits increase with rank, up to a maximum of 32, details are on the Ranks page.
  • Setting either the Buy or Sell price to 0 allows to disable that option (it even gets removed from the hologram).
  • The holograms above Shop Chests are only visible up to 4 blocks away, the floating item is visible up to 16 blocks away. 
With player warps making it easier to set up public shops I hope players will find these a useful way of promoting special items or offers as well as making shops look more interesting.


Down For Maintenance

As the server was quiet I've taken it down for maintenance as follows:
  • Full backup.
  • Update 4 plugins to latest version (minor bug fixes) and test.
This shouldn't take more than 45 minutes, as always I'll update here when done.

Update: 11:35 - All done, players can now connect as normal!
