    Hello again Crafters,

    As most of you likely already know the staff team has been working hard to develop a new spawn and rework the shops to make them compatible with the new 1.13 command structure. With all that work under way we've decided that now would be a great time to reevaluate what we're selling in the shops, and get some player input on what you'd all like to be able to buy there. What we sell in the shops hasn't been updated since 1.8 and, input or not, it's time to clear off the shelves and bring in some new inventory.

    Below you'll find a list of the different shops and the items currently being sold. Some items are popular and will remain in the shops (such as the dyes) while other shops have open slots that need filled and/or have items we'd be willing to change. The list has been color coded so you can tell which is which. Feel free to offer and suggestions you have for individual shop items or to build a whole new shops list if you'd like. We will determine pricing for the items after we decide what all we'd like to offer so don't worry about adding suggested pricing, we have that covered. Also, remember some items will not likely ever be sold in the shops: such as diamond items, end portal frames, etc. You can suggest it if you want but don't hold your breath waiting for implementation.

    Thank you all for your time, we hope to hear from you all soon.
    Happy Mining.
    CCMC Staff Team

    Honestly I don’t think anyone buys the iron armor. It might be useful for beginner players but by they time they find enough levels to be able to afford it they should already have a full set. It would make sense if it was cheaper but if I remember correctly it’s like 30 levels for an iron chest plate when you could easily find 8 iron with 2 minutes of mining. I don’t have any ideas with what to replace it with but I just think it’s something you should get rid of.
    Also plz keep the sea lanterns.

    Thanks for asking for input! A refresh of the shops will be fun.

    What I'd like to still have in the shops for sure, in order of importance (sea lanterns most important):

    -sea lanterns
    -prismarine brick
    -dark prismarine
    -all the dyes
    -creeper head
    -human head
    -blank map

    What I'd like to maybe have added, just suggestions:
    -actually having each dye available, instead of just the primary ones
    -each and every flower!
    --flower pots
    -brick blocks
    -lily pads
    -note blocks
    -magma blocks
    -soul sand
    -other mob heads (not whither skull tho)
    -perhaps some of the 1.13 stuff (coral? Conduits? Tridents? I dunno, haven't looked too much)

    The iron armor I would like to get away from unfortunately I'm not sure what we'd like to replace it with either. The Forge theme is here to stay because it's a good place to keep Bob the Blacksmith and a public anvil. Iron armor and tools seem like a natural choice but, as you said; it isn't terribly useful. So what would make it a useful shop? Would the armor be useful if it were enchanted or should we try to move to other items? This could be a good home for an Elytra or the phantom membrane used to repair them.

    I'm actually pretty surprised anyone wants the prismarine stuff to stay. So, each shop holds 7 items- that is the size they were originally designed and have been rebuilt for. I understand the masonry shop COULD have a great deal of things in it however limiting to 7 items keeps the game from becoming too easy. What if instead of keeping all that prismarine stuff we simply sold prismarine shards- letting you make the individual blocks as you need them? This is the same reason only the primary dyes are sold in the shops- you can't buy any color you want but you can make any color you want with what you buy. That's why I created the list the way I did- I want to know what's REALLY important to you. I mean: would you really want soul sand in the Masonry Shop if it meant quartz or glowstone wouldn't have a home?

    As far as heads are concerned- I may end up making a villager to live in the head shop outside the arena. I've been toying with the idea of selling the vanilla skulls, staff skulls, and/or the various MHF_ decorative skulls. This would not be difficult so I wouldn't worry too much about heads in the exp shops.

    I say Glowstone, Quartz, Bricks, and Nether Brick (like the actual brick not the block) should be added in some way.

    As for things that could be removed ; Item Frame, Painting, normal seeds, fishing rod,

    As for the Forge Shop, you can replace all the iron stuff currently there Simply with anvils, iron bars. shield, (Water/Lava) buckets maybe, or rails. They all have the iron aspect to it and I feel like they'd be good in general.

    Ok @InfiniteCorners , that makes sense.
    I guess the flowers are out... Maybe a Florist villager at the market outside the arena could be fun?

    Absolutely. I could easily see a villager selling flowers for gold ingots.

    Either buying it for levels or trading gold ingots for a fair amount of fireworks

    Can you be more specific? There are a lot of fireworks out there and whether you want them for visual display or to propel an elytra would be 2 totally different items.

    Replace the iron armor with chainmail armor since it is not craftable.

    Add gunpowder for crafting rockets, or just make the Tier 3 Rockets purchasable.

    Make all the mob heads available for purchase and maybe the MHF Heads.

    Does the Fortune X on a potato still work for massive crop farming for villager trading? That might be a fun gimmick.

    Just for humor, make a shop trade that gives 1xp bottle for 1 level of xp. :D

    Maybe make Dragons Breath available, so that players can make the special arrows.
