  1. Greetings and salutations to all! As you most likely know, I'm 72Volt, and I'm currently working on a unique wild outpost.

    However, as a backup, I want to create and operate a simple business. It will involve selling Stone Bricks (and maybe Wood and Smooth Stone) in bulk, by claiming a residence on SMP4 and turning it into a huge Stone Brick Factory, made up of a few cobblestone generators (edit: have now decided to get suppliers of cobble instead), a huuuuuge tree farm for smelting fuel, a furnace room and of course the shop/storage room itself.

    I plan to price my produce at the most competitive prices in the Empire, and through specialising in these few raw materials I hope I'll be extremely successful.

    Current Status: Tree farm has been set up, thanks to Cheesatarian for providing saplings and bonemeal. Current goal is to find a supplier of cobblestone, generators are slow.

  2. Glad to see this post 72Volt. Let me know when you are operational and I'll stop by with a couple rupees to spend. :)
  3. Will do ^_^
  4. I wouldnt do smp7, as that is a mainly wild server from what i have seen. And i have heard that smp3 is pretty barren. I would go for smp4, since there are huge shops there, if you price it right, you can steal their large market of the specified materials.
  5. I might do that, it's currently in the lead by a vote :)
  6. That's what I like to see. :)

  7. Hmmmmm, I don't think I like this talk of stealing our large market of the specified materials. I may have to start playing shop keep again. 10101 ftw

  9. Now this sounds like a plan. Start small and grow, as all real life business does. Let's be real, you start out at the top - you've got no where to go!

    Kind of like those folks that peak in High School. Look at them now....

  10. Sorry, it's called capitalism, it's the purest form of economic Darwinism :)
    But hey, speaking of Darwinism, it is not the strongest or smartest party that survives, it is the one most able to adapt. Apply this to your business, if I'm taking the target audience for your products, adapt by finding a gap in the market :)
  11. Wait when did you add smp2 to the list? You could be my neighbor ;P
  12. Im sorry but trying to 'steal' SMP4's Market is going to be really hard, 9139, 9000 and 9256 are all massive (9139 mainly being stock ;)) And all competing and I own 9139 and have made people shut down shops or go cheaper than me to buy them out to sell for more.
  13. Looks like we have a challenger!

  14. Snapshot 1:
    Trees have been planted. Wanted to make a cobble generator, but decided against it due to its crippling lack of speed.
