Trade Signs

Postby Marc » Sun Mar 04, 2018 10:23 pm

Hey

Based on this suggestion, trading items are now possible through a sign. Making the signs are fairly simple, but take a bit of understanding.

These signs can be used to trade money for something, however its suggested that you use chestshop for that as they both do the same thing. The major purpose of enabling trade signs is to trade items for items. Only drawback is the fact that you cannot do it with custom items unfortunately. Shouldn't be an issue though. :P

No chests are required to make the sign.

In order to make the signs you can follow this template:

#FIRST LINE - [Trade]
#SECOND LINE - [AMOUNT][ITEM] <----------------------------- THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO GAIN FROM THE PLAYER
#THIRD LINE - [AMOUNT][ITEM]:[STOCK] <--------------------------- THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO GIVE TO THE PLAYER

*** IF CORRECT - TRADE SIGN WILL LIGHT UP BLUE AND NAME WILL DISPLAY ON FOURTH LINE ***


EXAMPLE:
Image

In this case, I am giving away 10 cobble for 10 dirt. The colon next to the cobble represents how much is inside the virtual chest that doesn't exist. In this case I inserted 10 cobble in there right now. If I bring more cobble and right click while holding it, that number will increase, thus increasing your stock.

Now the :0 next to the dirt sign for example represents the amount players have given you. In this case, nobody sold me any dirt yet, therefore nothing has been traded. However, if someone does trade with me, that number will increase. Simply right clicking the sign while having spots in your inventory will give you the items that someone traded with you.

Item-Ids:
Item names can be fairly long, however you can use the command /itemdb while holding the item to get a list of shorter names that will work for the items you want to trade. You can also use ids, but it doesn't seem to set the name automatically like chestshop so using /itemdb may be beneficial to you in order for players to see what items you are trading.

EXAMPLE:

Otherwise you must go to that sign to restock and collect the items you have traded.

Please let me know here if you have any concerns and I'll try to assist!

Can you take a screenshot while you are making the sign and post it here :D? Having a little trouble formating the sign it seems... :(

So, this is for trading dirt and netherrack.

[trade]
1 dirt
1 netherrack:1
(will auto fill in after)

When creating the sign, do you need to put in the stock number?

It shows the same as if it was on the sign now. In my case, I needed to make sure that I had at least 10 cobblestone in my inventory since I filled in 10 in the stock (:10). Also you want to omit the ":0" where the dirt is as it will do it automatically.

I tried to put 0 for it, but it seems to require a number more than 0 to get it started on the line for what you want to give away; (I'm assuming to ensure its not emptied at first). If you find another way to omit that, then sure.

You put a number for stock. Don't write the word stock :P. If an item-id is too long use /itemdb while holding the item you want to sell, and it will give you shorter names you can use.
