Buying & Selling goods

You can trade goods through our very own virtual shop. It is not physically located somewhere, you use it with commands. The shop does NOT allow you to simply sell to or buy from a system in unlimited quantities. If you want to sell something, you offer it on the market at a price, and wait until someone buys it. Or you request something for a price and wait until someone sells it to you. So you use the commands

  • /offer for goods to sell that others can then /buy, or you can
  • /request goods you’d like others to /sell to you.

Everything offered and requested in the shop is stored under an ID. In order to sell & buy, you need to know that shop-id. You can find that out by either looking for a specific user’s offered or requested items or find a specific item and then picking from the list of users that offer/request that item.

Do not place overpriced stuff into the shop such as dirt blocks for 10k. The shop is for trading, not for free storage. I will reset your account balance, and if you continue to abuse the system, eventually ban you.

Here is a quick intro about the most basic commands thanks to colossal921:

Here is a flowchart that explains all the 4 different processes:

Commands Reference:

Please use the following commands to access the shop from in-game. Offers and requests are broadcast to all players in-game, but purchases and sales (i.e., completing a transaction) notifies only the players involved.

  • {ro} – In this place specify r, req, or request for requests, and o, off, or offer for offers.
    If nothing is specified, the command assumes offer
  • <…> – Arguments in angled brackets are required for the command to run.
  • […] – Arguments in square brackets are optional.

Offer items for sale in the shop

/offer Search your inventory for the item currently in your hand, and sell all of them at existing price. This only works if you have an existing offer for the item.
/offer [price] As above, but specify a price.
/offer [price] [amount] Sell only [amount] in the shop.
/offer … silent … Specify “silent” as any argument to offer to suppress the sales announcement. Useful when posting large amounts so as not to spam everyone.
/offer … check … Specify “check” as any argument to show what this command would do without actually performing any action. Useful for “checking” your arguments are correct.
/depotoffer <depot-id> Get the item from your deposit with depot-id, and sell all of them at existing price. This only works if you have an existing offer for the item. This works from worlds with inventory restrictions.
/depotoffer <depot-id> [price] As above, but specify a price.
/depotoffer <depot-id> [price] [amount] Sell only [amount] in the shop.
The silent and check options work the same with /depotoffer as with /offer
Price Changes: If you want to change the price of an offer, all you need to do it offer one more item of the same type and add the price to it. The existing offer in the shop will change the price accordingly

Buy offered items from the shop

/buy <shop-id> Use /find to find the <shop-id> first (NOT the Item ID). If you do not specify an amount, it will attempt to purchase all available.
The <shop-id> is the offer number in the shop listing
/buy <shop-id> <amount> Buy <amount> from the shop
/buy … check … Specify “check” as any argument to show what this command would do without actually performing any action. Useful for “checking” your arguments are correct.
