  1. Alias chest would allow you to access a chest in your storage room from another chest in the same residence. By placing a sign on the original chest, then placing another sign on the destination chest, you would have access to the same contents everywhere. Think of it like Dropbox, but for Minecraft. Let me know what you think!

  2. I just don't want to spend 100000+ rupeesv expanding my vaults, my alts can't access them, it's just a pricey process.
  3. Vault vochers. kill momentus. Vote for EMC etc. the not need to cost money.

  4. I like the idea, but like dufne said.. /vault.
    No need for something else, vault vouchers are not that hard to get.

  5. This is actually an interesting idea. We're actually releasing something like this for shops soon as a premium item called "Remote Shop Signs" that lets you bind a sign to a chest at a different location.

    this would be the same concept, but open inventory instead of shopping.

    As sam mentioned, alts can not access your vault, so there is some benefit here. Shop Managers might have a "re-supply" room that they could refill their stock in the shop area of their residence w/o going back and forth.

    I've added it as http://track.emc.gs/issue/EMC-1227

    But we will likely do it as a premium item too (note: that doesn't mean supporters only - it would be an item free players can buy from other players), and could be given out at drop parties and voting bonus rewards etc.

    We haven't released the shop sign one yet because got to figure out all ways one might obtain them.

  6. If this is to be released, would I be able to hopper items into chest A, and hopper them out of chest B?

    And, about the premium shop signs. By premium, do you mean that you have to pay to set the sign up? I know you mention that something could be dropped at parties for the "Alias chest" idea, but it seems like for a shop, having to use vouchers would be a bit restrictive.
  7. I love this idea, can't wait to see it finished!
  8. No, the OP mentioned aliasing the chest, but we won't do it like that. It'll be a sign that on right click, acts as if you right clicked the chest instead.

    As for the shop signs, its a special new sign:
    Best Minecraft Servers
  9. This is a pretty cool idea. It would make a difference in malls and multiple res. Sounds awesome! :)
  10. This really does sound cool in a way so +1
  11. 1 thing what about duping? it could easily be done with this method like the mope bug where 2 people take the item at the some time
  12. You wouldn't have access to the chest, just purchase from it with the premium shop sign.
  13. i am talking about the op not the shop sign thing (tho that seems really cool)
