  3. Once you have joined a town, find an empty plot, and type /plot claim - this is now your land to build your home on

You can learn more about Towny, and see all the commands here.

Economy

The VectronGaming economy is based around iron, as it's the only item that you can sell directly to the server for money. All other items can be sold in player made shops using the ChestShop plugin.

To sell your iron (you must be a Member):

Visit the server spawn with /spawn

  1. Turn around and walk to the far wall with the sign labeled [SELL]
  2. Hold the iron you wish to sell, and right click the sign (repeat until satisfied)

To create a Chest Shop:

1. Place a chest on the ground
2. Place a sign 1 block away from the chest (for example, above it)
3. On the sign, write:

First line will be filled by the plugin automatically
Price line is a combination of buy and sell prices. You need to have a price indicator (like 'B' - price that will apply to items BOUGHT by PLAYERS - or 'S' - the SELL price) near the price - the prices are separated by a colon (:)
Some of the possible price combinations: "B 5:5 S", "B 5", "S free" You can find out the name of the item you're holding by doing /iteminfo
For Example:
   
A person can buy 64 diamonds for 10 dollars and sell them back for 5 dollars from AcrobotPL

McMMO

VectronGaming uses McMMO to provide a fun, RPG style gameplay. Nearly every action in Minecraft gives you experience points for a skill. After collecting enough experience points, you level up, which awards you special abilities such as avoiding fall damage, or mining faster, etc. 

To view the player level scoreboard, type /mctop
