Economy Signs

The economy signs are now enabled, player creatable signs are as follows:


Putting [Balance] on the top line of a sign will allow players to right-click it to check their balance.


Player Trading Signs are somewhat more complicated because of all the options available, you can find a basic guide and link to a video tutorial on these in the 'Vote & Earn Money' section of the site.

The [Trade] signs do not need to be on a chest, they can store their own inventory!

You can use these in Stores at the Player Mall but please remember to keep at least 2 Trade-O-Mats stocked, mainly for players who do not wish to participate in the economy.

Admin signs will also be introduced soon giving you other entirely new ways to use your money, but this might take a few days to fully implement, in the meantime start saving!


Votifier Enabled!

I've finally managed to get a Votifier listener working properly so it is now enabled for the following sites:

Planet Minecraft

Minecraft Server List

Tekkit Server List

You can find more details on the new 'Vote & Earn Money' section for more details and some other ways to earn in game money!

Economy Poll Results

The poll has now closed and 77% of you voted to enable Essentials economy!

It's a pretty clear cut result so over the coming days I'll gradually introduce new features and uses for the economy, for starters though I've enabled the following commands and added them to the 'Commands' section:

/bal or /money- check your balance.
/pay <player> <amount>- pays <player> the <amount> specified.

The following is available for players of Member rank or above only:

/baltop - list the players with the top (highest) balances.

I've also added an 'overdraft facility' of $10,000 for VIP players as an extra perk!

All players have been given a $500 starter balance and new players will also be given this amount when they join!
