    I have another suggestion! This is a suggestion to rework the skyblock shop so that it serves more of a purpose than to buy cheap diamonds or a bit of wood whenever you can't be bothered to cut it down yourself.
    Here is currently what the skyblock shop looks like;
    2015-01-22_15.09.44.png

    Looks very full at first, but then you realize that it's missing some very vital things, making items such as sand almost impossible to obtain in bulk without farming it from resetting your island, or without completing tough challenges, which make some of the easier challenges, such as getting 64 cactus, very difficult to a noob. Below i have some suggestions on things that could spice up the shop a little bit.

    -First of all, making the shop a physical place. It may sound silly at first, but you could have a large building at spawn with signs that you could use to purchase items from. It'll save you having to make commands like /shop 2 or /shop 3, as instead we could have /warpshop. This would be a great opportunity to add a sort of auction house, where players could put up their own signs and profit without spamming the chat with text like "selling 2 diamonds, need a stack of saplings please" because we all know that they intend to sell those saplings anyways, so why not add an actual auction house where points become the skyblock currenc, instead of hard to get items?

    -Keep the shop open. We've all had that problem; we have 1800 points at last, and we want to buy a nice, juicy diamond block. Then you realize that you have to continuously open the shop to buy 1 diamond, to then have the shop close on you. Then you have to open the shop again and again, until you give up and jump off the edge of the world, never to play skyblock again. having a button that lets you sell either 1 at a time, 32 at a time, or 64 at a time could fix this, but then the shop would still have to be stapled open to satisfy people who are trying to buy items.

    And now.. for the big wall of text;

    -Increase the price of diamonds by 100 points
    -Increase the selling price of cobblestone by 10 points
    -Decrease the price of coal from 50 points to 25
    -Add emeralds to the list of purchasable items for 150 points

    I'd be happy if only 5 things on the list get added, because the shop is currently..
    2015-01-22_15.09.44.png Not bad, just.. lacking some things. Ok, maybe a lot of things.

    that is a big list however there are some things too much to my opinion however i really like the idea of the shop being a "physical place" many other servers do that please take that into consideration

    and i think its too any items to be added and i don't think it should all be added and i dont think nether stars should be and if it would be added, 10000 points is too much.
    and if all this stuff is added it would make almost no point to challenges and other stuff and trading.

    And again another shop rework thread :p But i like this one because its really nice structured and relies on some background knowledge and not just "ADD SPAWNEGGS PLS!!!!" i really like the idea of a physical and a player shop place and i also like the idea of adding lapiz, sand, redstone, sponge, cobweb and nametags but i dont understand why they should add firework stars :D All in all i gotta say nice suggestion keep up the good work!

    Sorry but no new shop. You made a thread about Skyblock being OP as it is... this is just making it 2000000000x more op... Sorry I say no for most of it

    Looks like a crap-load of items that takes away from the concept of Skyblock. The skyblock shop is supposed to provide you with the basic survival needs to start an island off, if we added all those items, it'd be like Creative with a price. 90% of the items you listed above are able to be constructed with other items or basic things you are supplied in the starter chest. For example, potatoes, crops, etc can be planted by the seeds provided in the chest to start with. Nether rack can be collected by travelling to the Nether in /spawn. Leather can be obtained by killing cows, feathers can be obtained by killing chickens, stone tools can be created by mining, you can get fish by fishing, the list goes on and on and on. I strongly disagree with expanding the Skyblock shop with all these over-powered items, and find the basic shop to be just fine. It takes the fun and main concept away from Skyblock completely, if we were to add all those items in shop, why not just obtain a bunch of points in Skywars, etc and then just purchase all those items and create an OP island? It's quite unnecessary to have all those items in shop, if you ask me.

    Also, with the physical shop thing, we used to have a physical shop in the form of a villager, but I believe it was either lagging the server too much because people would spam click it or was buggy, therefore we got rid of it.

    Being able to purchase more than one item without having to re-click shop would be loads helpful to people, though.

    And the auction idea has been mentioned before in some way, shape, or form.. I think it's a solid idea but it needs more of a concept to it... will players have to purchase a space for a limited amount of time to sell their items? [ Ex : 2000 points for 30 mins, etc ], something like this sounds kind of complex to code, but I'm sure it can be done if the concept and idea were sorted out.

    I think the villager thing got removed because you couldnt trade normal stuff with the villagers on your island. And i think the space to sell your items should last longer like 3 days or so but then youll have to pay like 10000 points.
    And now to the shop expanding thing i think most of the blocks he listed arent op items and should be added and even if some of them are op items then just sell them for a very high price, to the argument that someone could make points on other servers and then use them to instantly make an op island on skyblocks is invalid in my opinion cause thats already possible with the shop as it is right now they can just buy unlimited amount of diamodns for example and place them on their island.
