To /shop or not to /shop

Recommended Posts

I'm not planning on having a /shop anymore since their are now traders and player made shops with the vending machines. However, its open for discussion if we should have one or not, but if so it will most likely have a limited inventory. I'm open for any suggestions and thoughts about the /shop command.

it could be nice in a pinch to be able to get ammo or food, but there's also an element of survival to the game that having an easy button kind of takes away from. with the new traders system i think players can manage. i vote nay on shop commands. but don't take away my /gimme. it's like xmas for me. except instead of socks i get water and bears!

I think a limited shop wouldn't be a bad thing, though at the moment I'm still debating on what those limited items may be. Perhaps schematics at high prices?

I do agree with farts on /gimme though. I like the random nature of it, and whether I get water, a bear, or a spotlight, it has added an additional bit of flavor.

I think shop should be limited to certain hard-to-find items; calipers, tool and die sets being an example. I can rarely find a Working Stiffs or anywhere else that isn't constantly raided.

I also like /gimme. You don't always get something good with it, so I'm for that bit.

A15 economy system is quite well and I can buy some rare thing(nailgun,aguer)

But now a day 2h real life refresh makes me crazy...

Hope later on the "/"commands return we can spawn some trader in the spawn place and lessen the goods refresh time(50mins a game day maybe) will be best...

I am not a big fan of /shop it makes the game too easy to get food / ammo -- I kind of like how people have to actually play the game as it was intended as a "survival" game. I do agree that the /gimme command is enjoyable for the roulette of getting a bear or zombie. And as you can't do a /gimme every 30 mins or so it'll force more people to play. :)

I would like to see /shop to go.  Stock up on coins and buy my items at my machines! :)

I also enjoy random /gimmie id love to slay a bear!

I was setting up the /gimme command and it appears that our server manager program over at Envul.com, has removed the bears option from their gimme list. That seemed to be a popular feature, having a bear randomly spawn next you. :S

Having that said, should we still have a /gimme command?

Used to be able to buy ammo too on the server store... Traders don't have it :/ And it's a pain in the butt just trying to gather enough Nitrate to make gunpowder and then to make bullets it costs 3x gunpowder per round. In A14.7 the hardest thing to obtain was brass, but in A15 it's Nitrate. Meanwhile I have a few thousand zcoins and nothing to spend them on... no more ammo ...no more Bacon and Eggs ...No more store!
