Having played other SMPs in the past as well as GC(for the past 2 days) I often grow weary of the town shop. Often, prices set there are hardly competitive, a stark contrast to servers with personal shops. I suggest that GC provides players the ability to set shops, perhaps through a Helper/"License". This License should also allow players to set public warp points that are permissible. Through these public warp points made available on command(/shop list), players would then be able to travel to a secure shop set up by the owner, and purchase/sell/trade at that location. The location should also have chest shops that allow for an economy available even when the owner is offline. Here are some possible questions I foresee being asked: 1. What if people start trolling with warps that lead to death? Ans: Helpers are available to moderate the warp points and warp points can only be set upon approval of a helper. OR A general market to set chest shops is constructed around spawn. 2.What if the owner suddenly quits GC with no aforementioned notice? Ans: The warp point would then be less popular and slowly die down. OR The general market resets every 1 day for example. 3. What if owners set an absurd price? Ans: As a free economy, people would simply avoid that place in future. 4.Why should we(the admins) actually bother with this? Ans: For reasons that are obvious; an economy with this suggestion would be brimming with player-player interactions. The shops also allow others to contribute in other ways like setting shops/farms/mob generators. Instead of playing as the typical "PVP-er" or "Builder" or "Miner" types. 5.Why does the /Trade function not suffice? Ans: The Trade function requires both parties to be online and aware of each other's conditions. In lieu of the hectic server in GC, there is hardly any time/space to discuss such conditions. With the proposed introduction of chest shops, players need not bother with such mundane tasks. They can either accept the conditions or leave. The chest shops also allow for multiple simultaneous dealings with other clients and overall, result in greater spending.
