My name is OffTheAir, or Air, been playing on here occasionally, hopefully you've seen me around!
Just wanted to mention how great the server has been for the past couple days, I've gotten to meet a lot of cool and responsible people and have a lot of laughs. Hope everyone's having a good time, and if you ever need anything please let me know.
Our first highway has been laid! Highway 1 connects Volair to Renn and FireStone City! Many more are planned to be made in the future, as more towns start to pop up on Allimore. Come join the fun today.
Hey there Allimorians! Tech Admin Tod here with some news!
For those of you who haven't heard yet, Allimore has reset its economy and removed the Jobs plugin. From the get-go, the jobs plugin has been a sort of band-aid over the real challenge that is setting up a functioning server economy. It helped us to get the server up and going and was an interesting experiment in trying to facilitate exchange. However, in the end, it was a temporary and ultimately, flawed, solution that has fallen short of our expectations.
Prior to this reset, we had noticed that the currency had utterly lost all value since the removal of towny upkeep which itself was in a way, another band-aid over the real economic problems on the server. All trade had then occurred through the form of item bartering, most notably, through the exchange of diamonds as in the case of some of our most active users.
What this Means for you (TL;DR):
So to better enable and facilitate this diamond trade, we've removed the old and by popular decree, worthless, currency and instead opted for a diamond exchange. Now you can exchange your diamonds for server currency at the spawn and at any given point you may exchange your currency back into diamonds at an equal 1:1 rate with no tax.
This should enable players to conduct their trades in diamond without needing to carry diamonds everywhere with them. Items may now be priced at values like half that of a single diamond (Something not possible when strictly exchanging whole items.) And chestshops using the currency can now make trades using the diamond-backed currency, so diamond trades can occur between two players even when one is offline.
