Incorrect. I was going to implement it, but the way I made the shop made it impossible. I don't really feel like explaining, but it's to do with max stock, restocking and starting stock.

I did however recieve a good idea from trel, where the item's price will go up by what you choose everytime it reaches 0. Urg, but then I just thought of another problem with that... back to the drawing board.

yes there is, you can remove and add items via ACP if you look on the main shop page, you'll see a space to type a username, type the user's name, and click the button, and you can edit their items.

However, you can't edit their special effect things (hint hint Zarath)


i tried that but there is no space to type it in.. did you update it just now? oh yeah.. all the sudden i keep getting that i couldn't obtain shop items. what's up with that? i haven't done anything.

hmm, so then in the special shop, what is the titles ability thing for? Simply to display the rank corresponding to what I set it to already?

Unless you're talking about something else, you can already do that. It's one of the text effects. Just buy a glow color in the special shop :)

at the moment, yes. I'm thinking you'll have to buy the ability before you can buy a custom title and/or change someone elses title.

yeah i like the changing user titles better than the item part of it.. that would be cool if you could buy an avatar or something. or say all signatures are disabled and you can buy your signature or something.. just feeding you ideas. :)

Ah ok, thanks for clearing that up. It get it now. :)

Also, I have some more ideas. Besides not just being able to set maximum amounts of each item that each person can buy, can there also be a set maximum total number of items bought from one store?
I want this because for the store case, I want to have one where I basically have a mercenary guild or something, where people can be hired. However, I want to limit the amount of total mercenaries each person can hire, and then limit the amount for each, so that each individual "item"/person can only be hired once.

Also, this is going to be kinda weird, and I guess probably more trouble than it's worth, but I want to sell or at least rent some real estate :P
There can be another special shop created to sell different sort of title deeds and licenses. There can be such that after you create a private forum, you can create a title deed and set it to the permission so that whoever owns it becomes the mod of a particular hidden, private forum. Then another type will just be a license or something, so that if it is bought, it can be used to gain entrance into that forum. However, licenses would become availible only after the title deed for that forum has been bought. A potential home owner should be sure though that he has enough money to buy the licenses too, or he might have some unwanted guests. Then when the barter/trade system is in play, he can give out those licenses to friends or something. :D

Okay, Im confused now after reading all the previous posts. When a user buys for say a custom title in my shop, is there any way to automate this or do i have to keep track of what they buy, then i set it for em manually?

Unless I am mistaken, you cannot actually buy a custom title yet. You simply make it so that a person can have a rank displayed, whether a generic set or a special rank. At least that's how I understood it, but I didn't want to use it for my board. When it's activated, nobody's ranks are displayed until they pay the fee and then it automatically is displayed for that one person.

You cannot change anyone else's anything yet unless you are admin.
Right now, you can make it so that someone pays before he can have his or her signature displayed.
