    Based on Wug's announcement, adept and above are able to make trade signs, for those who are interested in opening their own shop to sell stuff, here's a guide to teach you how to make a simple one, and stuff:D

    Materials needed:
    1xSign
    Whatever you want to sell

    Format for sign:
    FIRST LINE: [Trade]
    SECOND LINE: Price of whatever you want to sell, example: $10
    THIRD LINE: [Amt] [BlockID/Name]:[Amount of the item in your inventory], example: 10 Feather:52
    LAST LINE: Nothing.

    It would look something like this:
    2015-03-30_23.17.18.png
    As seen from my picture above, you can see that I am trying to sell my feathers, at $10 for 10, and I have 52 feathers in my hot bar, which is the total amount of feathers I have. If you made a correct sign, the [Trade] at the top would turn blue, and you can see your name at the last line of the sign, on the other hand, an incorrect sign will turn the [Trade] at the top red, and an error message would pop out at the bottom.

    Correct:
    2015-03-30_23.17.24.png
    Wrong:
    2015-03-30_23.23.27.png
    For the third line, the amount at the end may vary, as long as the number is not larger than the amount of the item you want to sell in your inventory. For example, you have only 100 diamonds in your inventory, the most you can do is [1 diamond:100], and cannot be [1 diamond:120].

    Restocking:
    Simply right click the sign with the item you are selling in your hand.

    Collecting money:
    Simply right click the sign with a empty hand.

    Have fun playing with those trade signs :D, there are also other methods to make it but this is the easiest and the only way known to me to make the sign, try google it :p.

    I apologize for necro-bumping this thread, but I do believe that certain information should be added in regarding Trade signs. I also did not want to create another thread for this because it falls under the same category as this thread. Hopefully, the TS can help by updating the first post with the following details.

    Firstly, I observe that most, if not all, players create Trade signs to sell items, it should be noted that Trade signs are named as such because they work both ways, i.e players can make use of the signs not only to Sell items, but also to Buy items.

    This can be achieved simply by swapping the two lines and making some minor adjustments. Below are simple examples to demonstrate the uses.

    Trade Signs.png
    In the Trade sign on the lower Left, we can see the usual "Selling" Trade sign setup where in this case, I am selling pumpkins for $100 per 64 pumpkins, and I am selling a total of 128 pumpkins, which means whoever comes round to "Buy" from this Trade sign can "Buy" a maximum of 2 times, since 128/64 = 2. This, is what we always see.

    However, in the Trade sign on the lower Right, we have a "Buying" Trade sign setup. In this setup, the Trade sign becomes a "Buying" Trade sign because the Trade sign now gives out $100 for every 64 pumpkins received. As for the number beside the "$100", that is the total amount of money the creator deposited into the sign for "Buying" the pumpkins, which in this case is $1000, which in turn means that this sign will only "Buy" pumpkins a maximum of $1000/$100 = 10 times.

    To wrap it up, when you wish to "Sell" an item, you would do this:
    Trade Sign (Sell).png
    And if you wish to "Buy" an item, you would do this:
    Trade Sign (Buy).png
    I hope my explanations were clear enough. If in doubt, just seek clarification. Thank you!

    Cheers,
    Ernest

    All Trade Signs refund you your deposited money and any items will be placed back into your inventory. If your inventory does not have enough space, the Trade Sign will NOT break, but it will try to return you as many items as possible. The rest of the items remain in the Trade Sign.

    The only way to retrieve items from "Selling" Trade Signs is by breaking the sign itself.

    Cheers,
    Ernest
