    Time and again, server after server, I run into the same problem with wood, that problem when you want 1 type of wood, but your in a biome that seems almost inescapable, and when you find a new biome, it is either Desert or Ocean? Yeah, me too.

    What Does It Do?
    Basically, it takes up to a stack (whatever is in your hands) of a wood item, and you decide what type of wood to change it into with the cost of 1-3 XP levels.

    The foremost point is that when your in a biome that is wood-specific, and you want a different type of wood, you are SCREWED, you need to travel through 3 biomes though many nights just to get the wood that looks right on your castle pillars, which is boring. Offering every type of wood to make a convenience.

    This would be very unique and a cool thing for the server :D

    This would be awesome, but I don't know if something like this is possible without a very complex array of command blocks.

    I have 6 full chests, 1 for each wood types. It was easy, just a diamond axe and a long walk. Also saplings + bonemeal gets lots of wood too.

    It would not need a very complex array however at this point we would need to either 1) Abolish and existing shop 2) Redesign the layout of the shops to accommodate a new shop. That shouldn't be too big of an issue since I don't think anyone on the server currently uses the Iron shop so it could be repurposed.

    We'd need 1 button that cleared a stack of wood from the player's inventory (I would not support exchanging oak since it's just too easy to farm) hooked up to comparators that will assign a +1 score to the wood objective. I do not know how much exp we would want to charge for an exchange but if it was 3exp lvls then the cost per bundle of wood from the wood shop would be 3 lvls and 1woodscore which would prevent just farming out wood since you could only ever buy as many stacks of wood as you have surrendered in the past.

    It's definitely doable- the only real question is How far is too far for the exp shops? The exp shops on this server is very useful however it was never our desire to make things too easy on the player. The prices in the shop are set fairly high and the items are limited because we've always believed adventuring, mining, and trading should be the backbone of the server economy. In fact the shops were originally made for 1 reason: blaze rods. Nearly 2 years ago the nether on this server had been stripped bare of spawners in a 50k radius. It took me 2 weeks to find someone willing to trade me 1rod for 1diamond and every other new player was having the same issue with being unable to start brewing because there simply were no nether wart or blaze rods located anywhere a newer player would reasonably be able to find them. Over time more and more things were added to the shops players could use but almost everything in there are things that if needed by a player would/could take an insane amount of time to find like saddles, nametags, stacks of dyes or simply could not be gotten like pig spawners, creeper heads, or rabbit spawn eggs.
    All types of wood can be accessed by walking for less than an hour after using /spawn. I'm actually pretty sure that every biome in MC exists within 2k of spawn in this server including ice spike, mesa, and mooshroom (mega taiga is the only one I can not think of specifically being within 2k but taigas have the same trees). Unlike most of the items in the shop if you do not have the wood you want it is because you haven't gone looking for it. In my experience you can usually harvest all of a wood type you would ever need by waiting til a bunch of people are online and asking 'Who has a home at a dark forest I can use?' or whatever biome it may be since many of us vets and high level donors collect biomes specifically for harvesting the materials specific to them.

    It only takes a sapling to make your own forest

    Whats he said^. This isn't a creative server anymore so go find trees, or ask for a trade.
    @InfiniteCorners his posts are to long and complicated. IC dumb it down xD I would like to see the shops Iron redone though. Would be cool.
