Player Shop Plots


What are Player Shop Plots?

 

This is a completely custom-coded and unique feature here at Symbiplex, the function for players to rent their own Plots in spawn. Much like in our Creative server where plots can be given to players, in Survival you can have custom-sized plots in different areas. We have 2 types of plots, World edit plots, and custom area plots. World Edit plots are uniquely within the Symbiennice (custom shopping hall or cloth hall). Custom Plots can be seen while walking around marked in Blackstone Slabs.

Custom Area Shop plots ^

 

Each plot has a unique and different price which comprises elements such as the number of blocks in the plot, distance from spawn, and any multiplier applied due to the “uniqueness” of the location. Plots typically closer to higher-traffic areas will cost more than plots further away. An example of this is the Symbienicce Plots near the Crates area are more expensive than those in the middle or at the ends of the Hall, furthest away from the doorways.

Plots can be rented for Symbit currency and are automatically taken from your balance. If you do not pay, you will lose your plot and all of the items within it, including items and signs.

Within your plot, it is for you to decide what you do, you can build a cute detailed shop or you can build a huge skyscraper to get noticed, it is totally up to you. You use these areas to sell items, by using Trading signs and in the future our custom shopping plugin.


Obtaining a Player Shop Plot

 

Obtaining a plot is easy! It is simple as running the following command:

/shopplot list

From here you can cycle through and view the plot you want to buy. Once you have walked around spawn and found a location you want, the plot will be marked with a sign that will match up with the name within the /shopplot list GUI. Once in here select the plot and check if it is available (empty map = available  / complete map = unavailable).

Click on the plot and press the green button:

Chat will pop up and ask you to confirm. Please type confirm into chat and the plot is yours! You can now do anything you want with your plot to sell your items to players.


Shop list gui

 

Within the plot GUI there are a number of features to explain to help you in your understanding of the plugin:

 

 

O – Maps – Here you will see the plots in the form of maps. (empty map = available  / complete map = unavailable)

O – Hopper – Allows you to filter between all plots, available plots, and unavailable plots

O – Barrier – Exits the menu

O – Book – Shows your owned plots

O – Arrows – Allows you to cycle through the pages and go back to previous pages.

 

The Plot Screen

 

Within the plot screen there are a number of features we want to explain!

 

O – Grass Block – this displays information for the plot (relating to the one you select) like the below:

 

O – Compass – This allows you to teleport to the plot if you want to go to a specific shop to purchase an item, right-clicking allows you to change the amount of time to teleport to the plot for.

O – TNT – This allows you to clear the plot, and this resets the plot to default. Obviously, you can only clear your own plot!


Other Features

 

Cancel plot

 

To cancel your plot, load up /shopplot list, find your plot, and the usual green button will change to red.

Press this, it will then ask if you want to confirm your deletion.


To rename your plot

 

To rename your plot so it displays within the Shopplot list with its new name, go to /shopplot list, and find your plot. From there click on the grass block to display the info, your screen will look like this:

 

This will pop up a chat message and it will allow you to rename your plot!

 

within /shopplot list you will see your shop name in the GUI.

 


To display information about the plot you are standing in

 

Simply run the command /shopplot info when you are standing in a plot and this will display the information of the plot


Plot Visibility

 

This allows you to toggle the display of your plot in the Shopplot GUi, this is useful when you want to do a “black-market” shop and hide from your fellow members or when your shop is not ready for release. Run the command/shopplot list, and find your plot. From there click on the grass block to display the info, your screen will look like this:

 


 

Server Economy


Symbits

Our server currency is called Symbits and we use the symbol ₿ to denote this currency. Symbits are a unique currency that derives from the popular Cypto currency; Bitcoin with our own unique twist with the name. This currency is shared across all of the servers that utilise the economy features.

This wiki page will talk through the basic commands as well as some of the more complicated features. Note anything player economy related is within its own wiki page. This will include information about custom player shops, the auction house and others.


Essentials Economy Commands

Useful Commands

O – /bal or  /balance – check your balance. Subcommands can be /bal top to display the top players within your server. This feature is usually shared across leaderboards stored around different servers.

O – /pay <player name> <amount> – pays the given player the given amount from your balance. This is important if players ask to be paid in /bal when you trade with them!

O -/sell hand – This sells the item in your selected hand based upon the costs that are shown within /shop (more on that later)

O -/sell <item> <amount> – This sells the item in your selected item based upon the costs and the number you selected that are shown within /shop

O -/sell all – This sells all the items that can be solved in your inventory based upon the costs that are shown within /shop


/Shop

To access the server shop you can run the command /shop or find the NPCs that are at spawn for this feature. Each sub-server may have different variants and different prices depending on the needs of each server. For example, RPG will have custom items and Symbisky will have its prices altered to suit Skyblock play styles.

You will see the following GUI:

Each of the blocks there is a category of items. On this page, the following also help you in navigating to other parts of the server:

O –The Paper opens the /info menu, which we know is the most important menu of all on each server!

O –On the servers that this allows the Sunflower will take you to the Casino menu, which allows you to gamble all of your earnt money for special prices. This will only be available on some servers (eg. not RPG)

O –The left-most Arrow takes you to the Auction House

O –The right-most Arrow takes you to the Website – What you are reading now!!

O –The barrier block will close this GUI and allow you to go back to what you were doing

 

Starting from each inventory from left to right we have:

O – Commands + Keys

O – Most recent server update items (these will merge into other categories when the update has passed)

O – Blocks

O – Wood

O – Valuables

O – Adventure

O – Banners

O – Heads (permission required)

O – Redstone

O – Honey

O – Mob Drops

O – Decoration

O – Color Blocks

O – Transportation

O – Trims

O – Spawners (Symbisky only, hence why the shop picture is different for this server!)


How to buy/sell items

Each item within the sub-inventories will display a price such as the below:

The buying price will always be more expensive than the selling price with some items having a better return than others. This is for our players to find out what the best items are to farm to get the most money possible.

Left-clicking this will take you to the buy screen

The Buy screen

Once on the buy screen you are given a number of options to purchase the items. You have the left side glass, the right side glass, and the bottom side glass.

Not all items will be able to be increased as you can only buy one at a time, for an example would be a tool or a command where you can not buy more than one at a time.

The menu will look something like this:

The left side will allow you to do the following:

O – Red Stained Glass Pane – Set to One (reset how much you want to buy to one of the item)

O – Orange Stained Glass Pane – Remove 10 (reduce the quantity you will buy by 10)

O – Yellow Stained Glass Pane –  Remove 1 (reduce the quantity you will buy by 1)

 

The right side will allow you to do the following:

O – Yellow Stained Glass Pane – Add 1 Item (adds 10 items to the amount you will buy)

O – Lime Stained Glass Pane –  Add 10 Items (adds 10 items to the amount you will buy)

O – Green Stained Glass Pane –  Set to 64 (set the total limit you will buy to 64)

 

Once happy you will use the Red or Green Stained Grass Pane to:

O – Red – Go back (do not buy eg cancel)

O – Green to Buy the item

 

You will then receive the item or a message to say it was unsuccessful.

The Sell Screen

Much like the buy screen, this is set up in the same way as the above. Alternatively, you can use the command systems above to sell the items you choose if this is easier for you.

The Sell all command

Much like the name implies click with your middle mouse button to sell all the items in your inventory of that type.


Commands + Keys

This can vary from server to server dependent on the features that we offer and areas that we will see. For Survival we see the following:

This server allows you to purchase claim blocks, and the different tiers of keys, including the global cosmetic and pet keys. It will also allow you to access /heads which is also the heads inventory that you couldn’t access without the right permissions.

Lastly, this allows you to redeem your Mob Hunting coin drops that you get from killing mobs.

The Diamond takes you to /ranks

RPG’s additional features include broomstick upgrades.

Symbisky’s additional features include spawner keys.
