I have a radical suggestion for shops.
14 days ago
Don't have individual shops.
Instead, create ONE marketplace...or one marketplace on each server that feeds into ONE Wilder Marketplace.
Allow players to put items up on the market for sale. Ranks can have different numbers of items for sale. No chests to hold the items. You bring an item/stack/shulker of something, create a sale listing for it, the item is taken from you and listed on the market.
One list for everyone to search through.
No 256 character limit on shop desc
You can pull an item off the market at any time
Could also be merged with an Auction functionality. Or do an Auction House separate.
Players can search ONE market list, find the items they want, buy them, and go back to their base.
The more I think about this, the more I think this is it's own suggestion. I'm going to create a separate post for this.
