Chest Shops​

Hello all,

Thanks to long-time community member & friend, @ianfreakingb , we are able to introduce a custom Chest Shop experience to MCATLAS (internally known as DukesMart).

Please let us know if you encounter any issues with this new Chest Shop system.

How to Create a Chest Shop​

Creating your Chest Shop is easy. Follow these steps:
  1. Place a chest for your Chest Shop
  2. ***Lock your chest with a [Private] sign***
  3. Place another sign above or on the chest
  4. On the first line of the sign, type in "[buy]" (case-insensitive, without quotes).
  5. On the third line of the sign, type in the format "x for $y", where x is the quantity and yis the price.
    • For example, "5 for $8" means five of the item for $8
  6. If the sign is formatted correctly, the first line will turn purple, a white ? appears on the second line, and your username will appear on the fourth line in dark blue
  7. Next, place the item you want to sell in your hand.
  8. With item in hand, right-click on your newly created sign.
  9. The white ? on the second line will now read the name of your item. If your item has a custom name, such as a written book, it will display that instead.
  10. Place all items to sell in the chest below.
  11. Done!
*A [buy] sign does not lock your chest. Use a [private] sign to ensure people cannot open your Chest Shop chest!

How to Buy from a Chest Shop​

  1. Find a shop to buy from.
  2. Right-click on the [buy] sign. Right-clicking once does not buy an item -- it shows information about the shop
  3. You will see the message "Shop selected" in chat, and a scoreboard display to the right of your screen.
  4. Carefully review the item, attributes, pricing, etc. listed in the display.
  5. Right-click the sign again to complete your purchase.
    • Make sure you have enough money (gold) in your inventory as well as free space for the item!
  6. Continue to right-click the sign to make additional purchases.

Other Commands​

  1. /shop - Base command. Run this in-game to see a full list of all commands.
  2. /shop balance - View your ledger balance*
  3. /shop top - View top ten highest-earning players on the server.
  4. /shop withdraw - Withdraws all money from your ledger*
  5. /shop withdraw <amount> - Withdraws a specified amount of money from your ledger*
*Each Chest Shop owner has a "ledger" which is a type of bank account for shop income. Shop income does not get placed in the Chest Shop chest. We do not allow using Chest Shop ledgers for mass storage of gold ingots. Chest Shop ledgers will expire after 45 days of being inactive on the server.

Limitations​

  1. Shulker Boxes containing items may not be sold. Empty Shulker Boxes, however, are allowed to be sold.
  2. For technical reasons, dyed leather armor will not display the color name
  3. While you may set your prices at any value, the maximum possible price is $2304 (max stacks in every inventory slot)
  4. Currently, you may not set the quantity of an item greater than that item's maximum stack (Eg. a dirt block's maximum stack is 64.) DukesMart will correct any invalid quantity automatically.

Examples​

For in-game examples, visit the developer's Town: Xinjiang
