Economy Update (v. 2.0.1)
We're starting with version number 2.0.1 in this update due to the fact our economy has changed drastically since 1.14.4. So the previous changes are considered to be part of 2.0, this is now 2.0.1. To read these patch notes effectively, they are set up with the buy price first, and the sell price second, and finally given a reason for the change.
Buy Price / Sell Price -> New Buy Price / New Sell Price
Reason for Change
The overall purpose of the economic changes is to raise the viability of foods and craftable items that require extra steps in order to sell. Currently, both the Mining and Farming meta-games consist of getting as many raw materials as fast as you can and sell them in bulk. We also included a couple of items that need more farms that require more effort to set up properly.
9 / 3 -> 9 / 5
Pumpkin Pie requires three different farms in order to make them properly. This should make them more fair to sell.
30 / 15 -> 8 / 3
Apples are easy to farm via villagers so this evens out with the current emerald price.
8 / (13) -> 20 / 15
Beetroot Soup now is based on the prices of its recipe.
Mushroom Stew can be exploited by donors to make infinite money.
2 / 1 -> 4 / 2
Cookie requires two different farms in order to make them properly. This should make them more fair to sell.
25 / 12 -> 18 / 12
The buy value of cake, assuming the milk cost nothing once you get the iron buckets, has the buy price of 16. Since it’s a hassle to make, we’re making it 18. The previous buy price did not reflect this.
12 / 6 -> 12 / 8
Bread is the most expensive food due to wheat being costly, so raising the selling price should promote the selling of bread instead of wheat itself.
16 / 4 -> 16 / 6
Iron Ingots were previously reduced due to the usage of neverending Iron Golem farms at 0, 0. This is no longer the case so we are reverting this change.
144 / 36 -> 144 / 54
The sell price for iron ingots is raised, therefore the block form of iron should too.
MOB EGG SHOP
Dolphin Mob Egg:
5,000 / X
Highly requested mob to be added to the shop.
Parrot Mob Egg:
3,000 / X
Parrots are uncommon in the current world seed we're using.
Turtle Mob Egg:
5,000 / X
Turtles are not too common but are farmable so they should be a bit costly to start a farm.
Cat Mob Egg:
2,000 / X
Cats are common in villages so they should be cheaper than Ocelots.
Fox Mob Egg:
2,500 / X
Foxes are common, however, Arctic Foxes are uncommon. The price should reflect that.
4 / 2 -> 2 / 1
Oxeye Daisies are not rarer than the other flowers anymore.
Leather Horse Armor:
X / (28)
Leather Horse Armor can be crafted with seven leather pieces. This matches that sell price.
Iron Horse Armor:
X / (42) -> X / 200
Iron Horse Armor can only be found in chests and fishing, so the price should be above seven iron ingots.
Gold Horse Armor:
X / (84) -> X / 350
Gold Horse Armor can only be found in chests and fishing, so the price should be above seven gold ingots.
Diamond Horse Armor:
X / (280) -> X / 500
Diamond Horse Armor can only be found in chests and fishing, so the price should be above seven diamonds.
MOB DROP SHOP
200 / 80
Scutes can only be obtained by breeding turtles which is a slow process. This price should be fair to breeders.
150 / 0 -> 150 / 15
Rabbit’s Feet has a 20% drop rate. This makes it rarer to obtain than other drops so the price should reflect that.
