I am currently in the process of building a server mall where things will be available for purchase using the iConomy dollars once the mall is finished! This might replace the current system of /shopbuy.
We are now 48 hours into our server, yes we started building everything 48 hours and this is how far we have gotten, no cheats! Everything on the server has to be mined or bought through iConomy.
Here is a quick screenshot of our help center that we are building, this is a sort of airport terminal where all the new players will spawn and there are lots of signs with different commands and rules for the server making it easy for new players to get started!
