LIBERCRAFT

Player Shops

Player shops are a way for players to sell and buy items on the LiberCraft server.
This feature is currently very experimental, as we are trying out different ways to see what brings about the best free-market style system for our community.

Player shops are supported by a chest-shop system which allows you to safely put items in a chest without the risk of theft.

In order to create a chest-shop:
- Place down a chest
- Place a sign above the chest against a wall
- Write [shop] on the first line of the sign
- Write the name of the item(s) on the second line (you can write anything you want)
- Write the price of diamonds on the third line, and the price of iron on the fourth line
- At least one price is required, but you aren't required to give both a diamond and iron price
- The price is determined per slot. You can put different items in each slot if you want, but they will all be sold for the same price.

Players will now be able to buy items that are in this chest, as long as they have the required currency in their inventory.
Only you as an owner will be able to take items out of the chest.

Shopping Districts
Shopping districts create an opportunity for shop owners to make more profits, by gathering a lot of shops at one place.
Players will tend to visit these places the most in order to shop for items.

There is a default shopping district near spawn, which is managed by the staff team.
However, players are free to create their own shopping districts in other parts of the map, which will also be added to the warpbook.

Shopping districts other than the spawn district can have their own rules about which items are sold or how plots are distributed.
This is determined by the owner of the shopping district, but will also have to be clearly communicated to the shop owners.


Kingdoms

Kingdoms is a framework for players to form groups on the server. Different kingdoms should represent different identities of players within the community.

Kingdoms can participate and cooperate in various aspects of the LC experience. Examples are:
- Teams in minigames
- Collecting experience for skills. Kingdoms have the option to select a bonus skill which will grant their members an XP boost.
- Building a base with your kingdom
- Trade and have war with other kingdoms (WIP)


Minigames

Minigames are a method to both relax and to meet new people. Take a short break from playing survival to do something completely different with friends or new acquaintances.

Our games come in a large variety of different types. We have competitive games aimed more at PvP, such as Skywars and Murder Mystery. We also have more casual games such as Discofall or Connect 4, which have more variety in gameplay.

The competitive minigames offer a leaderboards system, which can be tied to players or kingdoms. Reaching first place in these leaderboards will grant you specific bonuses. Some casual games can also offer rewards.

Competitive Games
Skywars (tied to player leaderboard)
Skywars is a quickpaced minigame where 4-16 players fight against each other in a sky world. Each player starts on their own floating island, where they have to make their way across the void to the other islands. Most islands have chests on them with loot that you can use to gear up. The last player standing wins the game! Use your currency to unlock kits, so that you can gain a head start in this minigame!

Murder Mystery (tied to player leaderboard)
Murder Mystery is a competitive role playing minigame. One player becomes the murderer, the others are innocent. The murderer has to kill all innocents, while the innocents try to survive until the end! One innocent player is the detective, who can see the cause of death for dead players. Innocents can end the game by finding all the diamond ores hidden on the map, and bringing them to the furnace to create a diamond block. If this block gets offered, the innocents win the game!

Paintball (tied to kingdom leaderboard)
Paintball is a fastpaced shooter minigame, where kingdoms can battle against each other to gain control over the minigun! The kingdom that has the highest score on the leaderboards will be able to use /minigun to get a gun that shoots rapid fire arrows!

Casual Games
Discofall
Spleef
King of the ladder
Parkour
Archery challenge

Diminishing Returns
We have added a system that adds diminishing returns to the xp values earned in a single day. This is done in order to prevent players from excessively grinding and getting too far ahead from the more casual players. The diminishing returns are applied on all skills equally, and will be reset once every 24 hours.

How it works:
The more experience you earn on a single day, the less xp you will get from each activity. The reduction is capped at 50%, meaning you will never earn less than 50% of the default xp value. We aim to have the reduction rates set so that you will start noticing a small decrease after ~3 hours of non-stop grinding, and you should reach the cap after ~8 hours of non-stop grinding. Please help us adjust the values if you notice they are incorrect.


Build Mechanics

The build mechanics are a new set of tools that will allow you to build more easily in survival mode. They are connected to the building skill.

Tools
The build tools are as follows: pencil, blueprint, chisel. A pencil can be made by crafting a plank with a (char)coal above it. A blueprint can be made by crafting blue dye with paper. A chisel can be made by crafting a stick with a flint above it.

Usage
The pencil and blueprint are used to make selections, which can be filled with blocks or be cleared out with tools. The chisel allows you to change the rotation of blocks such as stairs, logs, or glazed terracotta.

To use the pencil:

  1. Left click a block to set the first point of your selection
  2. Right click a block to set the second point of your selection
  3. Left click the air to move your selection in that direction
  4. Right click the air to expand your selection in that direction
  5. Pressing shift while clicking the air (left + right) will invert the direction

To use the blueprint:
  1. Right click the blueprint to open the menu
  2. Pick a block to fill the selection with, or a tool to clear the selection with. Clearing a selection will yield no block drops
  3. When placing blocks, you also get to pick a shape to fill the selection with (fill, walls, outline)
  4. When clearing a selection with a tool, it will only remove the blocks this tool is able to break
