Selecting stone and wood in /shop
« on: 14 Jul 2016, 18:22:49 »
Ok, so, less than 24 hrs ago, /shop was updated. Personally, I really enjoy the change to it, but I feel like there can be something more there.

In /shop, all stones get sold through "Any Stone". That includes andesite, granite and diorite. But, what if you go mining and you do NOT want e.g. granite and diorite, but you want andesite to use as decor? To then sell off the granite and diorite, you then must keep the andesite out from your inventory when you sell to the "all stones", which is a bit of a hassle.
So, why not do it like this:
In the previous iteration of shop, there was also a form of "any stone" in there. But, there you had to right-click, and then sell the stones off from there, selling one kind of stone at a time. What we can do in the current version of /shop, is to add a new "any stone", where you can choose which stones you want to sell. Right-click the "any stone" in how much you want to sell, then another tab opens up where there would be 7 categories: Stone, diorite, andesite, granite, and then the polished version of andesite, diorite and granite as a tab each.
Another example where this can be a problem (not as big though) is "any Wood log" and "any new Wood log". Same thing can be added as 2 new tabs, with every log in that category that is listed.

I do understand that the reason that the "any stone" and "any wood" is there to make it faster, and I'm sure that most people mining/woodcutting would just avoid these woods. But, there are rare cases where it can annoy people.

And the rare case of which adam speaks would be me.   :P

The interface is vastly easier to use overall, don't get me wrong, but I do miss the ability to more clearly specify what I'm selling.  I can see that adam's suggestion might not be feasible because it would require additional coding, but surely the plugin allows the list of sellable items to be tailored?  Maybe an extra page, or more categories, or something?

Unless it's just me, and this is a problem no one else has, in which case don't mind me.   :D

'A bit of a hassle' it literally takes 2 seconds to hold Q and drop the blocks from your inventory lol

Great idea, I've now changed how the /shop works for Stone and Logs, it will now open another menu which will allow you to again just sell all generally or to specifically pick which type you want:





I hope this is what you wanted, if not I'd appreciate any other feedback :).

I suggested in game, but I'll add here for the record. I'd like to see lapis added. Also someone else suggested the addition of the various kinds of fish. Also, a "sell all" button to immediately sell all sellable items in your inventory would be very nice.  Thank you, Lawrence.

Also suggesting because I can here.

Perhaps Prismarine Shard and Prismarine Crystal to be added to the shop in some form? You always end up with a surplus when you're grinding your weapon skills and I've had the Prismarine blocks for months trying to sell them.

The stuff just accumulates until you're throwing it away as it is.

Lapis Lazuli can now be sold under the 'Rares/Ores' category. And you can now sell all types of raw fish and select specific ones too if you want to. The sell literally everything possible option is a nice idea and something I'll definitely consider working on in the future.

Added Prismarine Shards and Crystals to the 'Misc' section.





Wool is also now able to be specifically picked.





If anyone else has any feedback for other items they think are common and they would like to be able to sell please just suggest them.
