Some changes are coming to the economy of UrbanMC. Firstly, we're updating the server market. Most blocks' prices are going to double to encourage player markets to expand into the building industry. Grindable resources' sell prices are decreasing to varying degrees. As well, some new items are being added: Bank Teller will sell you Notch Apples for 100 000 Gold. Bank Teller will sell you Totems of Undying for 60 000 Gold. Bank Teller will sell you Elytra for 80 000 Gold. Swim shop will sell you Tridents for 40 000 Gold. None of these items may be sold back to their respective shopkeepers. These prices may be adjusted over time. When an item is purchased at the bank teller, the cost will be withdrawn directly from your bank account. Shop changes will roll out early next week. We are increasing town upkeep cost. Today it's 5 gold per plot. After tax collection on Monday, we'll be increasing it to 7. A week later, it will increase to 10. While this is a steep increase, the majority of towns should have no issue paying upkeep for the week if they vote a couple times. It's being staggered to allow for towns to decide how to afford the increase and perhaps build up a reserve. On the nation level, the peaceful cost is going up to 1500 on Monday and 2000 a week later. Outpost prices are being increased from 5 000 Gold to 15 000 Gold. Upset about taxes? Go to war! War loot is being drastically increased, from 5 000 Gold to 30 000, and from 10 townblocks to 30. As of this moment, none of these changes have been implemented, but given their nature we deemed that it would be beneficial to provide some notice. As always, please let any staff member know if you have any questions or concerns.
