Economy.exe has stopped working.
Economy is struggling. The consumers want building materials more than they want actual currency like emeralds and diamonds. Gems lose value since the mall’s shops are so few and so often out of stock. I don’t want to exaggerate this problem but it exists, and to have a thriving player economy we need more suppliers to meet the demand of certain resources like wood and enchanting books. With the few amount of players we have this becomes a problem we as a server have to face. It’s sad to see such a beautiful mall only have a few shops on the first floor with the second and third floor being almost entirely empty.
The same could be said for the entire server in general. So much work is put in to better the server, but so few play on it. Personally I haven’t seen there be more than around 15 players on the servers at once, and even then there are some people that are afk.
The economy’s collapse is harming ambitious players and turning them away from the server. This is an issue that needs to be resolved. Having more people join the server is a possible solution, as it would provide more possible suppliers. Other than that I leave this to you, the reader.
