Hi there community! Today, I'm going to post a new version of Aikar's How to make money on EMC. Here is the original: Click hereHere are five simple steps to getting your shop started out, no matter which day you join. 1.Start a farm, you can have pumpkin farms, melon farms, wheat farms, etc. These farms can help you get rupees, by selling them to someone that also buys items. Here's what the sign would look like if someone was buying. 2.Head out to the public utilities on various smps. There are a few very big ones on SMP8, open to the public. Here is a link:Click Here3.Once you've been to the farms, bring your stuff back to your home smp, and go to your res. Set up a [Shop] Sign in a clean and nice looking room. Remember, the quality of the shop can change a player's mind from buying. (Overboard)(Can be visited at 11078) 4. Add a res tag to your shop. Be sure to add the tag Shop, and also a unique tag that you think is cool. Code: /res tag add Shop5.Keep expanding your shop, and also putting more and more stuff in. But be sure, to keep all items in stock. "There isn't enough space in chest!" means that the chest is full, and the buy price may be too high, or that shop owner may have a lot of the item."You don't have enough items to sell!" You've either sold all of the things you've had or you didn't actually have any of this stuff, but the shop buys the item!TIP: Visit several player shops and check buy prices. Ask people which shops buy items! Remember, you can go to other smps Some shops have several chests for an item, each with different buy/sell prices. Some shops have redstone lamps or redstone torches showing which chest are not empty.You can decide what to farm based on shops and prices.Wood / logs is almost alwas a good choice, wood sells well. Obsidian is another good choice if you know how to mine it efficiently and in a safe manner.Items that require skill and patience to obtain will get you much more money per invested time.Buy good tolls (like enchanted pick / axe, beacon / iron pyramid) to farm / collect efficiently. Claim the promo (Duh). Use Code: /promo (promoname)Wait a few months*Put the item up for auction in the auction section of the forums.*TIP: If you put the item up for auction immediately, it won't be worth as much. If you need quick rupees, you don't have to wait for an auction to start. Just sell it to some buyers. Promotional ItemsCustom Mob Drops (Blizz nose, Momentus' toothpick, etc.)Items from staff-hosted Drop Parties & Events! Fun ways to get rupees:Partake in staff hosted events. You may even get some cool items, which you can trade in for a lot of tokens/rupeesParticipate in forums giveaways and player giveaways in-game. These are always fun to participate in.Ways that may get you banned for getting rupeesRip new people offGo into the wild and grief someone's base, then sell all the stuff you obtained*Go into town chat and beg for money***Definitely permanent ban, no doubt about that, except on very rare occasions**You probably won't get money for this.Other ways:Kill custom mobs, then use the tokens to buy the /tbuy object. Then, sell the /tbuy object for money.Kill custom mobs, then take the custom mob drops and sell those for moneyVoting! vote.emc.gs Items of popular demand:Enchanted booksGod pvp armorOres/minerals/gemsEnchanted toolsStuff from the ocean monumentsHorse armorHigh speed horses (Speed 130+)Supporter vouchersPromosQuartz and GlowstoneStaff headsWoodStoneGood shops to sell your stuff to:15145:SMP7 (NutriciousBudha)11372:SMP5 (Shavingfoam)2000:SMP1 (ToddV)18721:SMP9 (MrColt45)12221:SMP6 (M4ster_M1ner) 16870:SMP8 (Sgt_Pepper4)Any of the Azoundrias. 200010331 1514518721 Another way to get money is to do jobs... but some jobs the employer doesn't have to be there! By jobs, I don't mean join a company, or dig for someone, or whatever, but here's what I mean. Some places now have a "jobs area." At this jobs area, owners will pay you to do things, such as craft sugarcane into paper, shear wool, etc. Places to find jobs:Smp2: 3470 (Poofasaurus) (Sheep shearing, transform sugarcane into paper, transform melon blocks into slices.)Utopia: 5555- Go from hub to directory, then find 'Job Opportunities' section.
