Retainer idea. #257
An idea I kind of had. Wouldn't be the easiest to execute. But a way to create a player made shopkeep. Have an NPC you can setup and give items to, and enable you to mark the items to be sold by the NPC for a certain price. Could set it up so that the NPC's are actually secretly chests.. Or that they have to have a chest under them or near them to grab the items from.
Could also set it up so that the retainers have a wallet of their own, and that you can deposit money into them and offer to buy things from other players for a price as well.
It might not be able to get the entire idea working smoothly.. items being sold overflowing the chest, and several other things could go wrong just looking at the base for the idea. But this idea could also lead into player owned shops and stalls around spawn or in certain areas. People opening up stores in their towns and giving people more options for buying and selling items and things. Could perhaps also even enable these NPC's to sell pokemon for the player too.
Could also have it so that the NPC's are sort of linked to the person who creates them and that you could place 2 or 3 them in different areas as well to sell and buy the same things from a few areas.. There's a lot to play with for the idea. But I think it would actually stand to help the entire Pixelmon Mod as a whole to have something like this added.
There are shop sign mods that used to be a big thing long ago, but I feel like this would be more professional and could help give a nice interface for the shop and get rid of 50 different chests for selling things and let us just have one NPC that can sell all our stuff. This would also give several players more to do and enable players to keep selling/buying things even while they're not online. Plus my favorite thing would be the implication of giving people more to build for their towns and spawns and such..
