A Simple Economy

There are so many servers out there that have a horrible economy system. Don't be like them!

I made this chart after being frustrated with a specific server that always had a way to exploit their economy to make money. I now use it on my popular server Cobalt (server.cobalt-mc.com).

This simple chart shows the prices to buy and sell most items. Use logic to figure out the rest (ex: stone is $x, so stonebrick is also $x). When making a shop, it's always nice to include a way to buy/sell one item at a time, and also to sell 64 items at a time. I find that the Essentials [Buy] and [Sell] signs look good and work well with our economy. See a live demo at our server, Cobalt.

(The selling prices are always half that of the buying prices. Example: a log is $4 to buy, so it would be $2 to sell. Trust me on this one! It works better than anything else!

You can download this PDF and use it however you like. I do ask, however, that if you put this page on your own site (for staff, players, etc.) that you give credit to "joshwenke" or "Cobalt". Thanks!

If you would like prices for any other items, feel free to send me a PM.

Give a diamond if this was helpful! If you're even feeling generous, favorite this post! Thanks!

Nice I'm sure that this will help a LOT of servers because some big servers have a hard to manage economy system so it makes the whole server hard to manage. Diamond for you *hands a diamond to josh*

This was targeted towards newer servers, but servers that have an established economy might not need this.
