    Last night I was doing modreqs, and saw one asking how to make a chest shop. The way I would do this back when I was a moderator, is send them the link of a wonderful chest shop tutorial that I believe.... Sneekers created. (May be wrong. I kind of forgot)

    I then wondered, do we have a tutorial on this? I looked through the forums, and found none. So here is one.

    I am not very experienced with chest shops, so if I got anything wrong, please correct me in the replies, and I'll edit this.


    Chest Shops

    There are a couple things required of you before you can have chest shop. I'll list them below.

    -You must be in a town
    -You must have a plot in said town
    -That plot must be set as a shop by an assistant or mayor. Command: /plot set shop

    Now comes the tricky part. After you get a plot, place a chest against a wall, and place a sign directly above it.

    It should look like this.

    After you have done this, you will need to fill out the sign in this order:

    [​IMG]

    So in the end, your sign above your chest should look like this.

    [​IMG]

    What this means is that I, LR_Davius am selling one stone, for 10 meebles. If you created the shop correctly, you should receive this message:
    [​IMG]

    Now this is going to get really tricky. You can also have a sell option on a chest shop where a player can sell things to you! You would need to format it like this.

    [​IMG]

    What this means is that I am selling stone for 10 meebles a piece. However, if someone would like to sell stone to me, they can, and I will automatically purchase it for 5 meebles a piece through the chest shop.


    Now that we've seen how to create a chest shop, let's look at how to buy/sell from it.

    This is me, on my brothers account, at the same shop.

    I went up to the shop, and right clicked to purchase one stone from... Myself...

    [​IMG]

    Notice the auto message "You bought 1 Stone from LR_Davius." The stone went directly into my inventory.

    Since I set up the shop to sell as well, I left clicked on the shop, and sold back what I had purchased, losing 5 meebles because of the price.

    [​IMG]

    Notice again, "You sold 1 stone to LR_Davius for 5 meebles."

    The stone went out of my inventory and into the chest.

    Things to remember about chest shops:
    -You stock the shop by putting items into the chest
    -Meebles are added to your account even when you are offline
    -Meebles are deducted from your account even when you are offline
    -Items that people sell to you will be added into the chest
    -If your shop is out of stock you won't be able to sell anything

    I believe I have adressed all the important things to know about chest shops. Again if I missed something, please include it in the replies so I can edit my post accordingly.

    Does anyone know the potion IDs? If you do, could you put them here?

    Thanks,

    Can you just use Item ID's from minecraft. Like 17.2 instead of Birchwood?
