harrismcc Builder Application

Post  harrismcc on Thu Jul 04, 2013 4:34 pm

Hello, lets just get the basic info out of the way first:

username: harrismcc
age: if you need it, ask
started mc: beta 1.2
previous experiance: I am a server owner so I have build a TON of buildings, some of my best are my mansion, the world trade center, and a huge apartment building.

Now we can get to my plan, I am a bit of a math nerd and i have created a formula.

As everyone has probably noticed, the server shop is… lacking. I would like to build a large, new server shop. I would like a supermarket theme and it to have most blocks, and essential items. I can use a formula i have created to judge the prices ( Price of 1 dirt x rarity level (out of 100*) = price)
I think that the server would benefit from this project, and it can help new members get started. I have started on basic sketched plans but i would not like to relice them.

Anyway, if you accept this application or not, i think the server would benefit from a better store.

*The rarity is based on appearances in nature in a 500x500 block square. Items not found in nature are priced based on items used to craft them.

Yes this is PRECISELY what should be going on here on the server. The spawn shop was made intentionally sucky to encourage players like yourself to create your own shops and grow the economy much like it's grown in real life. I think that a player-made superstore would really, like you said, assist players in getting what they need while saving them time and money.

However, superstores (such as walmart) can easily turn a florishing and diverse economy into a monopolized tyranny by making it impossible for other businesses to compete. 

Bottom line is, you have my vote but because of the size of this proposed store, it will be monitored to make sure other people can still conduct business. Also, because it is a store, I can't really give you creative to build it. However, I can give you a large plot of protected land which will allow you to build without and disturbances.

The reason I built all of the different shops at spawn was because I didn't want there to be a main shop that everyone bought stuff in creative from.  These shops are open for people to use provided they keep them stocked.  Anyone can put signs there and....we also have a wonderful farmer's market that Pika built if you just want to sell a few items.

While I agree that the server shop is a bit sucky I think that is the point for people to create their own private shops. If a large superstore would be created it would indefinitely shift the economy and put alot of smaller shops out of business. I agree with Ender that a protected store would be great but I could not imagine it being stocked by creative abilities. I voted No to the original Server Supplied Superstore but an alternative idea could be proposed.

Here is my suggestion: If this were to be stocked by the players from the server, thus creating a centralized community store where each person would have their own stall and prices for the items they want to sell that would be a reasonable build. I would think creative abilities could be granted to build the skeleton of the store but the individuals would have to supply their own items to sell.

I would like this to be the alternative plan.
