How to make a signshop on BlockHermit


Step 1. You start with placing a chest anywhere you want. This can be in a newtown stall that is assigned to you, in your base or someplace else. Just make sure it’s on claimed land so nobody can grief it.
Then you go and place a sign in the place where you want to sell or your goodies. Again; you can place that in your newtown stall or in your build. this time just make sure people can see and get to the sign.

Step 2. Write the sign like this:

[Buy]                                                                      for example:     {Buy}
item name                                                                                    Torches
number of items                                                                               16
price                                                                                                10

You can change [] with <>, () or {} as long as you use brackets. It also doesn’t matter if you use capitals or not.

Step 3. Put the item you wish to sell in the amount you want to sell it in the shop chest. In the case of the example you need to place in 16 torches.

Step 4. Take a piece of redstone and left click (attack/destroy button) the chest. Then you go to your shop sign and left click the sign and the {Buy} mark should turn blue.


The device sign works allmost the same with the difference that you need to replace {buy} with {Device} and you have to link the sign to a lever that operates a door, farm, …
You also don’t need to write down an amount so you can leave the third row empty.
Keep in mind that the device sign only activates the lever for about 10 seconds, so make sure not to place the device sign too far away from what it’s operating.


Note 1: you do not need to place the sign upon or on the side of the chest, you can have both in seperate areas.
Note 2. If your stock ran out and you placed in new items, simply left click the shopsign to update it.
Note 3: the {Sell} shop works in exactly the same way. Again you have to use the amount of items in the chest as you tell on the sign before you link them up.
Note 4: if you wanna buy items from other people using the {sell} sign but you don’t want too many; fill all but 1 slot with a basic item, like a torch, AFTER you link your chest to the shop sign. If you do this you can only buy 1 stack of the item you want to buy.
