How do I make a shop???
Listen up because I'm honestly tired of teaching this to people. To make a shop (probably in Diagon or Knockturn Alley) you need to use the aTrade system. Some find this difficult. It may be, but only until you get the hang of it. To make this you need 2 chests, 1 redstone dust, 1 sign, the amount of money you plan on charging people, and the item(s) you plan to sell. For this basic tutorial we'll be selling a diamond for 2 sickles.
Place one of your chests. This is where we will be putting the 2 sickles. (Once the shop is properly set up this is where the money will go when someone uses your shop.)
Then you place your other chest. This is where you put the diamond for sale. (You put 1 and then once the shop is properly set up we will add more. With books it's recomended that you use "Copy of Original")
Then you place the sign. The first line NEEDS to say [aTrade]. The second, third, and fourth line can say whatever you want it to. I usually Put the item name in the middle two and the price on the fourth.
Now comes the fun part. You hold the redstone dust and left click the first chest. It should look something like this:
Now do the same with the second chest:
Now do the same with the sign:
Now you can add more diamonds to the second chest. The shop should now run smoothly. If the [aTrade] ever turns red like so:
Check to make sure that the item(s) are stocked. That's usually the problem. If you have any questions you can ask me if I'm avaliable. Enjoy your new shop!!!
