Shops/Stores and information

Post by acsempronio on 5/20/2011, 10:17 pm

There seems to be some disconnect as to what shops are allowed.

1. I've heard "1 item per store"
2. I've heard "shops selling similar items"

1. This makes no sense and goes against economical logic. Given the number of items and number of people who want shops... there will be a lot of things that simply will NEVER BE SOLD.

2. this seems to be more in the spirit of the idea of "no MegaMart." I have conisdered the following:

Haberdasher: wool and dyes (also lapis)
Building Materials: Any block that is a building block. otherwise...
StoneMAson: only stone-related materials and their raw materials (no planks or wood)
Miller: all wood items and planks
Smith: all metals, gems (inc. redstone, and not lapis) and tools and weapons
Grocer: All food and food-related items
General Store: all items not fitting in any above category

I really need an admin input on this one, because I am going to be planning my main street soon.

What you wrote as your suggestion is the general idea, stores are only allowed to sell items that naturally make sense together. For example, a bakery would naturally sell cake, bread, wheat, cookies, and a carpenter shop or whatever could sell logs, planks, saplings, axes.

At least this is my understanding of it, hope it helped.

It's enough to confirm what I already thought...

Some of the plebs thought a store would sell just ONE item only.

I told them that was ridiculous.

"Any player may sell items at any price they wish, as long as the buyer agrees to the price, and the items are not spawned with /item or /kit. The items must be gathered legitimately. Be warned, however, that a set price exists for some rare/unobtainable items, and that players may just buy these items from staff if you try and sell them at a higher price.

a. Players will not be allowed to own stores that sell more than one kind of item at a time. Players will not be able to own more than one store at a time. The limit to the amount of people that are allowed to own the same store is currently: 2. This number may be subject to change at anytime.
The only exceptions to this rule is if you're selling items that are really close to each other, such as: A bakery can sell cake, bread, wheat.
A tool store that sells pickaxes, swords, axes, hoes. A armour store that sells Platebodys, Legs, ect.
(This means no more Mega-Mart, O-Warehouse, or any other stores like these.)"

Quoted right out of the server rules, I suggest everyone go read them.

Ding Ding Ding - the bells and lightbulbs just went off in my head.

So we're banning the idea of the mega-mart as in it sells everything but...specialty shops sounds like an awesome idea in which case if we're going to do something like that then it would be up to the staff to set the rules to similar items that qualify the various specialty shops.

I.e.
Smith shop - armors and weapons no ore.
Bakery - wheat - bread - meat - etc. etc.
Furniture store - wooden stairs - cobble stairs signs - paintings bookshelfs.
Ore distributor - someone who sells all ores.
Home Depot - someone who sells all building materials - wood - cobble - stone - sandstone - glass etc. etc.
Frabrics shop - dyes - wool - dyed wool.
and the list could go on to include a specialty shop for all the odd and ends stuff tool shop - etc etc.
