Revision as of 09:33, 17 September 2014

Techworld has a central collection of player-owned shops located at our very own server mall, Spawn Mall. Spawn Mall has 36 available shops spread over two floors and has been freshly redesigned for the latest map reset on August, 8, 2014. Come here to buy, sell, or even trade items for other items. You can also come here to sell your currency ingots to the server's Currency Exchange.

Spawn Mall at a glance

Spawn Mall is at the heart of the server capitol, Spawn and is one of the first places that investigating guests come to explore. Because of this, we keep the mall looking neat and presentable. The shops inside are of high quality and offer to sell and buy many items.

The command, /spawn will bring you to the center of spawn, directly above the mall. From here, you go down the staircases on either side onto a flat platform area. From here you can walk down into the mall from two different staircases. Above each staircase is heads of the recent donors, honoring their donation.

The first area you will come across as you exit the staircase is the main foyer. Under the staircase to the first floor of the mall is another staircase to the second and lower level of mall shops. There are four main wings of shops; the North Wing, South Wing, East Wing and West Wing. At the end of each of these wings are tunnels that run under Downtown Spawn to places such as the Spleef Arena. Each shop is owned and maintained by a player or players in-game, and each shop uses the plugin "ShowCaseStandalone" to access player credits and give or receive the items in the shop inventory. (For more information on ShowCaseStandalone, feel free to type "/scs help". The command "/econ" is also useful here when you want to know how many credits you have available).

The Server Shop

The server shop is a shop full of showcases run by the admins that allow for the purchase of items that are not normally available in the world for crafting, such as pink slime to create the drill pre-charger. The Admin shop is one of the first corner shops on the top floor.

The Currency Exchange

The Currency Exchange allows players to sell currency ingots here for credits each, this is a decent way to earn money. Please be aware however, that many players may be happy to pay more for your ingots. The currency ores are listed as follows:

  • Prometheum Ingot: 5 cr
  • Vyroxeres Ingot: 5 cr
  • Quicksilver Ingot: 10 cr


Player Owned Shops

You can utilize the spawn mall in two different ways. You can buy a shop for a flat rate, or, you can rent a shop for a monthly fee. In either case, a post must be made on the forums in the Mall Shop Thread **INSERT LINK HERE**. You must also comply to the rules of the spawn mall at all times. Any violation of these rules can result in loss of your shop, without refund, or a ban from the server if the staff sees fit.

Anything left in the shop will be removed and nothing will be refunded to the former owner of the shop. As this is a larger sum of money due at once, you do not have to worry about having the money ready each month to pay rent.
