    Just wanted to make sure everyone saw what I posted on the Steam group (Which everyone should join!).
    So that means Luley and I can't start our faction now? Bugger.

    Well, we do need one more faction, but it must be open and generally friendly. We are just trying to balance things out.

    So my killing days are over. Still probably won't be cool with Ironhelm but Skaal I can chill with. The
    Academy, I wants.

    Do I have any regrets? Oh no. :)

    Let the records show I offered 20 diamonds to Apcrag that were illegally stolen via bitch-assedness, and he turned it down. Let the records show that though my run was not without issues, I still was infamous, and added a new element to the server. Now I guess I just ease my way into the Academy, and start learning.



    Rate me hearts.

    Hmm, people should mine more iron, or we have to raise the price of iron from 10iron=1 gold to 5 iron=1gold.

    We need to construct those trade posts to kickstart our economy. Or maybe someone should build a Wall Street near the bank

    The problem with that currency system is that money can be used for something other than currency: tools. That's why something like iConomy works: Money can only be used for buying things.

    I recommend using something like gold. You can mine it, but it's useless, for the most part.

    Also, as admins, we need to have some sort of incentive to get money. For example, sell certain things that only can be bought with gold. Land or some sort of thing that only can be bought with gold makes gold valuable.

    I'm struggling to think of things that admins could sell with gold to kick-start the economy. Maybe to start a faction you must have an amount of gold? Or have to pay a certain amount to the admins to use certain functions of factions? I can't think of much.

    Also, you could use something like cocoa beans that are extremely hard to come by to sell. Admins give them out to people, and you can't get them anywhere else (aside from the occasional dungeon).\

    Yeah, but people should prefer gold when buying/selling.
    Iron is forsmall payments.

    I'd be fine with using just gold as a currency. There is a plugin (Might be iconomy) that lets payers make chests into stores by putting a sign above it. This way we could have a big market district that you can go to buy things with gold.

    Also can you guys add Minecart Mania? It is really balanced and would make building railways and stations 100 times easier. It also makes station work seamlessly. There is no placing carts, just push a button. At the end of the line you are auto ejected if an iron block is underneath the track and the cart goes into a chest for the next rider.

    Heres a list of what it does. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Mods/Minecart_Mania!

    Now, stocks are a possible option. With Bank, soon fluctuations in the value of materials will soon be extremely visible. With that, stocks will be possible to add.

    Osku and I were having a debate about if stocks should be a physical substance, or a value in the bank's database.

    The former would be easier to trade and be as safe as the stockholder is willing to invest the time and resources in protecting. Also, other people could sell and trade it outside of the bank. Also, we may open up possibilities to get a sort of "license" to sell and operate stock, as in letting you get a certain item to use as a stock for your business.

    The latter is extremely safe but harder to trade and protect. It's impossible to steal a number from a database, but that also makes stocks a bit boring, as someone cannot attempt to steal them from a base.

    Just rate "Winner" for physical stocks, or "Zing" for non-physical stocks. Vote "Disagree" if you think that stocks aren't really needed at this point in the economy.

    I don't think e should add stocks yet.
    We should gain more player base for that.

    Also physical stock is exploitable:

    Osku's Steel co.'has 10 stocks and and stock's price is 25 gold.
    And Luley's Robing&Stealing co. has 10 stocks too, but price is only 1 gold.
    So owners of Lyleys Robbing&Stealing could pretent that they own Osku's Steel co's stocks.
    Also it makes difficult to pay dividends.
    So each company must have unique item (we could make a plugin)
    Or we could use Bank's database , which makes trading bit harder.

    Edited:

    Also people!
    Organize more and get jobs!

    ive been reading the recent post and have seen the struggles with the economy. but there is one thing i don't see: anything to buy! that's what the money is used for right? so people need to create What exactly? businesses need to b created so we can get money flowing throughout the age of mines server. ex:a mining business or a mercenary business, or even a building business. as for the money:
    1 iron =1$
    1 gold =5$
    1 coca bean =10$
    1 obsidian =25$
    1 diamond = 50$
    the money scale i planned out is just an idea but when i look at it it doesn't seem like a good idea.
    but it does add more of a variety in money types. i based off the hardest to material to get with a reasonable amount of value. (in my opinion)

    what would be good for now is to have have and guideline of value of materials to stable out the economy a little then have a trial of different money systems until we find one that works for us.
