Player Shop Directory?
« on: 20 May 2017, 04:08:26 »
Been quite a while since I've been on and I have absolutely 0 knowledge on what shops even exist, let alone what might sell the things that I need. And I imagine it would be the same for any newbie who joins as well.

So, why not have some kind of player shop directory on the server? Kind of like a menu for it like the AH or the /shop. A player could pay a fee to be listed on the directory, along with a TP to their visit or their shop perhaps (perhaps the tp portion could be a higher fee to have as well). Some people have multiple possible shops, so potentially have more than one shop listing available for a person?

Along with that perhaps a way for people to list what they're selling in their shop. So like being able to pick whether you sell blocks, or ores, or farm things, or equipment/armor, etc. That would also allow a person to sort for what kind of items they're looking for.

I like this idea. Between Raiden600 and I, we've been compiling a price list, and who sells them where. It's not an expansive list, but, it's a start. I'd love to have this. I've no idea what the coding would be for it though, like, would it automatically be updated when the chests are? Or would the seller have to update it- which is part of the issue as is- some things stopped being restocked due to out of stock or not playing or out of town.

I'd help with this, if it can be figured out how to go about doing it. I'm not much for coding (unless I'm given the idea- I've done a bit with html and whatever the board stuff is before, so I'm quick with coding languages when I want to be), but, could compile the list if need be.

Weird.  I was just thinking last night about going around the different towns, compiling a list of currently active shops, and posting it to the forums.

There's just so many shops that were never updated after the chest shops update ... half the shops on the server are no longer usable, and most of those are in towns whose staff are no longer active to even remove them.  It's very disappointing looking around for something, only to find the one shop that carries it is out of date.

I've actually wondered if it'd be possible to remove at least the signs from the shops that are no longer active, if it's in the old format.

Sorry for my delay in replying to this, I thought of what could be a super simple solution to this, and that it could easily be added to the site. :P

Refer to the release post at https://www.noobscraft.com/site/server-chest-shops-search/. Plus you can now see and use the new simple feature at https://www.noobscraft.com/shops.

If this doesn't solve your issue or you think it's not quite suitable I'd love to hear of ways that things could be improved in that area.
