    2 things that stick out to me are:

    1) too many steps to buy or sell something.

    If it was possible to make it one step (i.e. /shop sell dirt 20.0) it would be easier for folks to pick up. I know the sub categories make it difficult to do in one line and it may not be possible to make it one command instead of 2.

    2) the help section doesn't explain it well.

    Washington explained it by giving an example for each command. (i.e. he said "to sell an item you type /shop sell item amount" "then you must type /shop select subcategorynumber" "that's the number left of the description".


    Not sure what the best way to phrase the /help for things, but it just made more since when he explained it.

    Ill give an example of why it's necessary to have two steps. What if I have two "dirt" in the shop. One that is just a regular dirt block, and one that gives you 2 blocks of dirt rather than 1. How do I decide which one to give you when you type /shop buy dirt?

    Yeah I get it and that's why I said that it may not be possible in one line. It's not a big deal to do it in 2 lines, once you understand the commands. I think the big hurdle most are having is the /help for shop isn't explaining it well. I think maybe a short "tutorial" that could be linked in the /shop help could be very useful.

    This will be helpful to many. Should be the first line in the /help. :)

    Someone got rid of the shop page so now we do not know what we can buy and sell besides for doing /shop list, and that takes awhile.

    I just noticed this too. With the improved in game shop, the web based dynamic price list seems more valuable than ever. Particularly if it were to be updated depicting the various [D:value] options.

    This makes me a sad goblin.

    I've been meaning to ask this. When TimCraft updated to 1.4.6 Tims said
    So the reason there are no clans is because Simpleclans2 breaks the /shop. Now my question is, does the new shop plugin fix that? If it does not then why can't purely make the shop plugin get around clans, since he did create the shop plugin? I realize that Tims also said "The second we're able to install it, we will," so obviously if SimpleClans2 did work then it would already be installed, it's just that I've been wondering why it hasn't been now that we have a new /shop.

    It isn't on there because nobody has gotten around to it. Not because my rewrite doesn't work with it.

    I suppose that is good news, so can we have a set date for when someone will have time to install clans?

    Just a random fact I pulled from the shop database: The shop is currently serving ~950 transactions/day.

    No idea, I don't give a shit about clans, so I'm not about to go put it on.

    I still don't get the new shop at all. I don't even know how to buy something. I liked it better when it was just
    /shop buy (item) (amount).

    It is /shop buy <item> <amount>, type in /shop buy gold 10 and it'll give you a list of items with the "gold" in the name, and then you type /shop select <index> where <index> is the number that appears beside the item you want in the list that you see. What's so difficult about that?
