Po8 is MCNSA’s home-grown economy plugin! Many of you may remember it fondly from a while back. While the concept is the same, the way it works is quite different.
[spoiler title=’1. Get Registered.’ collapse_link=’true’]
a. In game type `/po8 register` This is also what you will do if you forget your password and need to reset it.
You will receive a link just like this:
b. Click that link, Set your password.
[spoiler title=’2. Get some Po8 credit!’ collapse_link=’true’]
a. Place a chest, or use an existing empty one.
b. Stick some diamonds in there.
c. Use the command `/po8 deposit` (or `/po8 d` for short)
d. Left click the chest – You’ll get a “Deposit successful!” message.
e. Hop back to the web interface, and click “View your Po8 inventory!”
f. Click the diamonds in your inventory, and the item info screen will show you the buy price and sell price per diamond. I’m going to sell my 16 diamonds to the shop, and the shop will pay me 11,942.44 Po8 for them.
Now I have some credit!
[spoiler title=’3. Auction some stuff!’ collapse_link=’true’]
a. Send some stuff to the P08 shop by putting it in a chest, and using the command `/po8 deposit`
I can even send my slightly damaged enchanted diamond sword! Don’t fear, if you’ve sent something you didn’t mean to you can get it back by using the command `/po8 withdraw` and click that chest again.
b. From the inventory screen, click Auctions -> Create Auction
c. I’m going to auction my sword, and a stack of stone, because who wouldn’t want them both? I’ve chosen a starting price of 5000 – that’s the minimum it will sell for, and put in an optional buyout price. If someone hits that buyout price, they immediately win the auction. I’ve also chosen a duration of one hour. You can have it last up to 7 days. Your auction is summarized at the bottom.
d. If all is the way you want it, click Create Auction. You can see how it’s going by clicking Auctions -> My Auctions
[spoiler title=’4. Bid on an auction!’ collapse_link=’true’]
a. Go to Auctions -> Search Auctions
b. I’ve left the keywords blank, and clicked submit. This shows me all the auctions available.
c. Looks like Megleris is selling some cobblestone super cheap! And I just so happen to need some. so I’ll bid. Click the auction you want.
d. He’s set the buyout price at 32 Po8, and I want to be sure I get it, so I’m going to bid 32.
All the cobble belong to me!
6. Get your stuff into the game!
a. This part is easy. Get a chest with enough empty space in it to fit your Po8 inventory. If there isn’t enough room in a single chest that’s fine too! You can withdraw multiple times into different chests until your Po8 inventory is empty.
b. Use the command `/po8 withdraw` and left click that chest!
b. I’ve now got the items I didn’t auction, plus the cobblestone that I won from Megleris!
You can send Po8 to other players just by knowing their in game name, from your inventory screen.
Po8 will send you messages if something happens on the site relating to your account. You can check it by using the command `/po8 messages view|clear`
You can check your balance in game any time with the command `/po8 balance`
