Hi gang!You probably know the drill; you visit a slightly unfamiliar SMP server and you wonder what shops might be present here.. Of course you could simply do what a lot of us do: /v +shop, or /v +mall, but unfortunately that doesn't always work out too good. Try using those commands to find a shop which buys products from players for example. And that's not even including those residences which have a shop tag, yet no shop.Well, following an example set by SMP4 you can now use the same command on SMP2 which may help you find your way around./v +directoryIntroducing the SMP2 shopping directory:Please note: this is all work in progress right now. We're still busy building but I just had to show off a bit, even if it is a bit prematurely How does it work?We categorized the shops and put up an overview at the residence entrance. This is all work in progress, but right now our categories are as follows:MallsShould be obvious enough: big shops which have a large variety of items.Buying shopsWill only list shops which are buying items from the players.Animal shopsLooking for a cute bunny or a ferocious wolf? This is the area to go for.Horse shopsApparently horses aren't animals, but noble creatures which everyone needs So we added a separate category for these.I know, I know: your shop isn't a mall, doesn't buy items, and also has no animals. Not to worry, it willbe listed in our directory sooner or later. As said; we're still very busy working out the categories.So now that you found a category which you're interested in all you need to do is follow the coloured wool:At the end you'll find a message board which contains a (brief) overview of the shop and a teleport sign leading to it.Credit where credit's due...Special thanks goes out to:KaliaLlama who maintains a /v +directory on SMP4, which gave us the idea.SMP5's woolmart (/v +woolmart on SMP5); a very good place to get coloured wool. Run by Kyzoy and NZScruffy.Apologies for not adding you guys straight away, it was kind of late here and I know several locations from mind, but not always the people behind it.All the people from SMP2, they inspired this idea..... more news coming up soon!
