I am developing a new market called Rock Candy. It is different to other markets for one reason: there are no protectors. It is already shaping up to look good. What I need now are players to take it to the next level!
To do the market justice, you have to visit it, but in the meantime, here are a few pictures:
The world is essentially two tunnels that rise up beneath a huge ocean. Branching out occassionally from the main tunnels are small caves that are public areas or will be player owned. The ocean surface is dotted with many small islands, also to be player owned. There are underwater caves and a forest in development. In the future, more caves will be developed to create a large, natural looking world where many players have their input.Is it finished?
The branching tunnels are complete and he island positions are set. The ocean is half full, with 200 waterbombs of water so far. Roughly another 200 water bombs are needed to complete the ocean. So far, 29 player plots have been set. More on them later.
ADVERTISEMENT: I am buying 200 more waterbombs for the world. If you sell even one, please try to find me!No pros... How does that work?
The world is set to public protected. That means that only I and carefully selected admin players can place things. This is for several reasons:
1. There will be no random land wasted.
2. No ugly spawners dotted about.
3. No karma gathered from mining spam.
4. All builds will match.
5. No having to fly around awkward, pointless builds.
And more importantly as its a market:
6. No land sale scams.
7. No placed pro scams.
8. No accidental placing of rares.So how do players build?
First, the player chooses a set plot of land for building. They then either tell me how hey would like to decorate it, or they build a replica in another world for me to copy. Where possible I will place my own rares. The player can give their own rares for placement if they wish. The player retains the right to remove their items at any time, forfitting the land and their one-time payment. How much is land?
Land costs as much or as little as you'd like. A standard payment will be 1 waterbomb. If you don't have waterbombs, I accept wood, quartz and sand. Again, the amount is up to you. 1 wood is enough. Just don't expect me to be happy!How big are the plots?
Plots are intentionally small and limited to one pet player. Using 2 accounts is not allowed. If you do, you will be plagued with guilt for deceiving me. The average plot size is roughly 2 micros. These are not areas to put every rare you own. They are areas to advertise you and/or what you sell. If you think about it, shops are pointless. You place items then instead of selling, keep asking players to come and see what you have. If you do finally find someone to buy from you, you then have to go to your shop, pick up the item, then trade it. With this world, as most of the rares in your shop are mine, you are free to carry the real things in your inventory for selling.Plot types
There are five plot types at present:
Spawn plots: about the size of 2 micros, these plots are off the main corridors. They are in a premium location and will get a lot of traffic passing by.
+location, location, location
-only 3 plots and two have already gone!
Near the top right, there are two towers, each holding 5 rooms. The player can choose one room for their plot. Each tower is fitted with a plaque for quick tp'ing.
+You have neighbours!
-You have neighbours?
There are 6 private plots accessible only through diamond teleporter. These are submerged rooms entirely surrounded by water. You can even add your own scuba point if you wish! They are secluded so chat remains private. They can be locked if you wish to prevent intruders.
There are 10 islands. Each is about 2 micros wide. The big plus point is that height isn't an issue (within reason) and so you can make the most of the space given.
+ open air
- no direct tp. Involves a little flying.
There are several large plots that are for sale if you so wish. Each has its own plaque for tp'ing. These are currently set as public areas but my final intention is to lease them out to keep them fresh. Due to their size and importance, you must be a well-known active player for me to consider selling you one. The price will be different and require a good donation to the world (ideally in waterbomb form, but not necessarily).Lease?
Every plot is sold for a one-time low payment. This is renewed FREE yearly just by you saying you want to continue. If you wish to stop using your land, it will be returned to me freely and any rares you placed will be returned to you.
I reserve the right to ban players from the world for repeated bad language, harrassment or otherwise illegal activity. Confirmed scammers will also be banned from the world. Note: Just having someone call you a scammer in chat doesn't warrant a banning. I'd need to see significant proof first; either directly or from one of my admins.
For anyone interested in buying land (buy now before the world is fully opened!), or wants to sell me waterbombs, head to Rock Candy now to see what it's all about.
