We have set up a location for Shoptown, the coords are listed in discord.
The idea is for each person , that wants to, to build a shop and sell stuff. For example, last shop I had, I sold netherbricks, red netherbricks, mossy cobble, mossy stone, and End stone. I had chests full of stacks of those items, and a sign saying 1 diamond per stack. When someone bought a stack, they'd just replace a stack with 1 diamond. Used the honor system, and never had any issues, was fun!
This message was from before the mapwipe, but we will again be doing another Shoptown, once the map progresses.
Original forum post might be a couple weeks old, but we are still recruiting/rebuilding our playerbase, if you want a good solid server with a nice community, to spend you survival , (mostly vanilla), minecraft time, please give us a try! You just might finally find a server that is good for you!
When choosing items to sell in your shop, please try to choose items that no one else is selling, at least till Shoptown really gets going, that way we have a nice variety of things to buy in Shoptown and makes it more useful
Just an update regarding upgrading server...1.16 snapshot 20w07 is still too unstable to put on server : bugs with villagers not saving, among other gamebreaking issues. Seems they are making fast progress, shouldn't be too long till it is stable!
We tried out the datapack Dynamic Saplings, removed it, was more of a pain than it was worth. Easier to just pick up saplings and plant them yourself, instead of having them randomly plant themselves and then have to cut down more trees than you intended
