Guide to Signs

SentinelCraft Sign Guide

Hi everyone!

In this guide, we will be teaching you how to make your own player-shops using signs.

Tutorial Video



Sell Signs

At our /shop, you will notice that there are [Buy] and [Sell] signs. These signs are exclusive to /shop and cannot be made by players. These signs are important, because they are a good way to sell your items to make money. However, not all items can be sold at /shop or even our other economy plugin /auctionhouse.

Our /shop allows you to sell several items for quick money. But not all items can be sold here.


Selling Items with Trade Signs

The most common type of player-shop is selling to other players using trade signs. This can be done either with in-game currency or with other items. Here's how you would setup one of these signs.

LINE 1:

On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.

LINE 2:

On this line, you will need to type in your asking price. Your asking price can either be in the form of in-game currency or other items. In example 1, I want to set my asking price at $100. To do this you will need to type in $100. In the second example, I want to set my asking price at 1 Diamond. Typing in 1 Diamond will set your asking price at 1 Diamond. You will also see that there is an additional colon the second line. There is no need to type this in as once you finish the sign, it will automatically appear. This tells you how much money is in the sign once someone has bought your items. This can be retrieved by right-clicking the sign.

LINE 3:

This line is arguably the trickiest line to type in. It may seem intimidating on the surface, but it's much simpler than it seems. On this line you will need to type in the amount of items per transaction you are selling, as well as the supply of items you want in the sign. The way you would type this sign would be: <Amount per transaction><item name>: <supply>. In this example, I want to sell an amount of 64 stone blocks with 320 blocks (5 stacks) stored inside the sign. It's important that when typing in the item you want to sell, that you have the correct item names or ItemDB for the sign. To check this, you can type in /itemdb while holding the item in your hand. This will give you a list of correct names to put on the sign.

LINE 4:

You will leave this line blank and press Done! Below are your finished products.

In the first sign, I am selling 64 stone for $100 with 320 blocks in stock. In the second sign, I am selling 64 stone for 1 Diamond with 320 blocks in stock.


If your new found shop does well and you run out of blocks in the sign, you can add more into the sign by adding the item in to your hotbar. You CANNOT add items into the sign from your inventory, it must be in the hotbar.


Buying Items with Trade Signs

You can also buy items from player using trade signs. This is an effective way to receive items you need while you're offline. This is how you setup one of these signs.

LINE 1:

On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.

LINE 2:

This line is essentially inverted from sell sign. You will need to type in the correct ItemDB for the item you are buying. In this example below, I will be buying 1 gold block. Like the sell signs, an additional colon will appear in this example, but you don't need to type this in. The colon will indicate the amount of items that have been sold to you. To retrieve these items, you can right click on the sign.

gblock is one of many correct itemdb's for gold blocks.

LINE 3:

For this line, you will need to type in the amount that you want to buy the item for as well as the money you want store in the sign. This is proper format: <Amount per transaction:Amount of money stored in the sign>. In this example, I want to set my buying price at $1000 and I want to store $7000 into the sign. Once the sign is created, the money will be directly taken from your account. It's important to supply enough money into the sign, because once all of the money stored is gone, money CANNOT be reloaded into the sign. This will force you to make a brand new sign.

LINE 4:

Once again, you leave this line empty. Here's your finished product!

In this sign, I am buying 1 gold block for $1000 each, with $7000 stored into the sign.


Selling EXP with Trade Signs

With Trade signs, you can also sell your own EXP to other players! It's important to know how much EXP you have before you sell it. You can check your EXP levels by doing the /exp command. Once you know how many levels you have, you can move forward with selling your exp.

LINE 1:

On the first line, you will need to type in [Trade]. This is all you need to do on the first line.

LINE 2:

This line will be the asking price you want to sell your exp for. This is exact same scenario as if you were selling items to other players.

LINE 3:

On this line, you will need to type in the amount of exp you want to sell as well as the amount you want to supply in the sign. To do this it's <Amount per transaction> exp:<Amount supplied>. In this example, I want to sell 1,395 EXP per transaction with 1,395 EXP stored into the sign.

1395 EXP is common with these signs, as it equates to 30 EXP levels.

LINE 4:

As always, leave this empty. Here is the finished product!

In this sign, I am selling 1395 EXP for $100 each, with 1395 EXP stored into the sign.


The important thing to note is once you make this sign, you CANNOT reload the sign with more exp. You must make a brand new sign if you wish to reload more EXP.


Disposal Signs

With signs, you can craft your own [Disposal] signs. These signs allow you to dispose of any unwanted items. To make this, all you have to do is type [Disposal] on the first line of the sign and press Done. To use the sign, you can right click on the sign and it will allow you to place items within it. Once you close out of the sign, the items left in the sign will be disposed.
