A market place to sell plat items
Hello, I'm Trololo with a great new idea, a MP or Market Place, the MP will be a place where you can insert a plat item (no gold items) and sell it whether you are on the game or not. You can also put it plat from your account to sell on the market place. Ex. If you have 100 plat and what to sell 20 you will be able to sell the 20 by setting a price and a max. limit of plat taken out of your account of what you want to sell.
Next, the market place has a min. of 1 gold per plat to 1000 (to prevent trolls of 10000000 per plat)
Any plat item can be sold (you wont know who is selling it) and the gold will be put into the players account)
An item can be on the market for only 1 week before it is taken off.
Selling expansions will be possible with out making anyone an official in your town by buying the plat from the market.
Each and every item will be seperated into different tabs
Doors Traps Spawners etc...
I hope you like my idea sim9
I like this… basically its similar to trading, but as an automated auction house. Probably a lot of work though
Spiral Knights has a system just like this where you can set a value on units of 100 energy to buy at a certain amount of crowns. if you've never played SK, the equivalent would be you could put in 10 units of 1 plat, each unit selling for X amount of gold, while the players wanting to buy the plat would offer to buy each plat for Y amount of gold. If a player just wants to buy outright without waiting for plat sellers to move on prices, there could be an option for that. It doesn't have to be as complex as everyone makes it out to be, a simple market that allows the trade of currency without waiting around for an actual seller to be online is really all we need. Selling non-plat items seems like an unnecessary step.
It's an idea thats been done for the first time to my knowledge, with the MMO Neverwinter, you set the price and amount you want to sell/buy and it gets taken/added to the bulk of Plat on the Market (Hence no need to know who your buying from) then once the market reaches your sell/buy price the market will automatically take/deposit to the parties that are involved. Only problem of course for any market place... they can be exploited either by bug/hack and until security can get a bit better, they can be game breaking.
i love this one
It would just be better without knowing the players and it would be too overcrowded if everyone put up their 1 gold blocks
Hell, why limit it to plat? It would be kinda pointless for single items, but this'd be great for selling lots of 'normal' blocks at once.
Also, why shouldn't we see who's selling?
Only reason I can think of is to prevent people boycotting certain sellers, but I see no reason why they shouldn't.
