GoldStd 1.2.2

A different economy plugin

GoldStd implements an economy plugin based on Gold Ingots (by default) as the currency. This allows to add game mechanics to the game without artificial commands or other artificial constructs.

You can then pay people without using the chat console. Also, you may lose all your money if you get killed. Players can stash their gold on Chests, but they would need to guard them (just like in real life), etc. You can see how much money you have directly in the inventory window, etc.

The chat console commands are there for convenience but are not needed for regular gameplay:

  • pay $$
    By default when you tap on another player, only 1 gold ingot get transferred. This command can be used to facilitate larger transactions. If you use this command the next tap will transfer the desired amount in one go.
  • balance
    If you are rich enough, your money will be in multiple stacks. This commands will add the stacks for you.
  • shopkeep
    This command is used to manage shop keepers. Sub-commands:
    • /shopkeep spawn [player] [shop]
      • player - Shop keepr will be spawn where this player is located.
      • shop - shop definition from configuration file.
GoldStd supports three types of signs.
