Should we keep the current store system, or change to another?

  2. Change it so players can directly purchase from the NPC's, but have the basket option on the side.

    Hey everyone!

    Hopefully you've been enjoying SkyMetro over the past few days. Thank you for your patience and incredible support while we've been fixing bugs.

    I figured I'd make this post to (1) update you all on what's been done, (2) what we are working on, and (3) get your opinion on something.

    Recent Fixes & Additions
    - Computer placement was fixed, you now use the /computer command.
    - The Crypto drop-rate was increased significantly.
    - Computer upgrades are now stored when you break it and load again upon it being placed.
    - You can now safely trade with other players, use the /trade command.
    - All the challenges are working correctly now.
    - Changes have been made to PvP .
    - Minor bugs related to enchants have been fixed.
    - Dupe Bounty program.

    What are we working on?
    - Within the next couple of days we'll be releasing a Crypto Store, here you'll be able to purchase various custom items with your Crypto Shards.
    - ChestShops are one of the items that'll be available within the Crypto Store. ChestShops on SkyMetro will allow you to have multiple items for sale per chest as well as more storage than a regular chest would offer. This is definitely something to look forward to.
    - We're aware the economy needs some attention, because of this we're going to be releasing a slightly modified version of the current economy.
    - Item repairing will be live on the server very soon! It'll be part of the tinkerer and you'll exchange Crypto Shards for durability on your weapon.
    - City challenges will soon be a thing! We'll state a challenge and the cities will fight to win it. For example we might say the city that makes the most money within a week receives a reward.
    - We'll be adding a trust section to /computer, this allows you to trust other members to interact with your machine.
    - Keypads will soon be part of SkyMetro, these allow you to protect a chest with a password.

    Your Opinion
    We plan on improving the in-game store very soon - we'll be making it so everything is purchased/sold in the quantity of one. But we'd also like to ask you all a question:

    Would you like us to work upon simplifying the current store system? So, keeping the basket feature but having it instantly create one when you enter the store, as well as many other simplifications. Either that or we make the baskets optional, so you can walk straight into the store and make direct purchases from the NPCs. If you could leave a vote on the poll attached to this thread, that'd be amazing!

    These updates seem great, and I can't wait to see them implemented in the future. The current shop system is very original, and I love it, but something more simple would be nice to see. Can't wait you all online enjoying the updates!

    Ranks already have /shop, which teleports them to the shop, and this would make it too easy for them and too hard for non-donors, in my opinion. They'd have the luxury of not using the shop.

    Awesome updates! I'm just a little worried that crypto shards are getting pushed just a little to much? Ik they will be used for markets, fixing things and apartments but... now a shop. Be careful on this because one bad move could ruin they economy.

    i wouldnt mind a faster way to sell your items maby like donators can get a /sell hand command or a sign to put on your chest to sell everything in it or something along that line........

    I would personally like to see what is in the donator kits before buying it. Many players buy the rank for the kit, but without knowing what's in the kit, it's pretty unknown to the player that wants to buy a rank before coming on the server.
