    Ctrl + F5 on entropiasales.com to see updates. I was caching the site so it loads faster, but it's not great if we keep updating so often! I removed caching in this and future versions.

    While adding some items:

    -There is no category for pets. I added them in misc tools now.
    - I have to add (M) or (F) to armors.
    -When not logged in, I cannot look for my added items. It only shows items from one shop.

    Keep up the good work.

    @Spawn. Nope lol. No pets yet, but I can add that category.

    I think you have the old version. Make sure to press Ctrl + F5 to refresh the cache. I thought it would be good for a speed upgrade, but now lots of ppl have random versions locked in lol.

    It should show items from both shops. (I had to delete some listings when migrating databases)

    Added a roadmap to main post so you'll get an idea of what's coming next.

    We are planning on adding an optional premium feature where entropians are hired to update your shop or part of your shop for you from a special account on a regular basis. There would be a monthly fee for this.


    p.s. Thanks LeeLoom for always updating and giving feedback

    Edit: My computer got corrupted... had to backup and then reinstall everything. In the process.

    What kind of map you are talking about? Like those in IRL malls where it's only mall interior map? etc.

    For tracking accuracy of listings, it's currently up to the shop owners and a reporting system will be built to flag outdated stuff. If we track it manually... it sounds like it would be too much work for too little gain tbh :\. Currently my suggestion to shop owners is update it everytime you stock up, and most of the time they just change MU & Amount once for each type of item. Makes life easy!

    A shop/item directory outside of EU for EU is fine, I don't think there's any issue with that.


    p.s. New updates will be comming soon. I'm atm moving the database to a more modern one.
    Yes, basically just like those in IRL malls where it is only a Map of the malls interior. It will be a map of the Planet with a list selection of all the Major Shop Plazas such of booth market areas or malls and dots on the map showing the location of the shops that you can hover over and select/view which booth or shop your interested in looking over and it will only show you the name of the shop/ the owner/ and known sales history of the shop and what its specs were when sold.
    I was considering doing shop advertising opportunities where players could have their items listed under their shop indicator on the shop and/or more for like 10ped a month. Though, I have not been doing a lot of thought processing on the map because I am doing real life work and working on other projects, but it seems like a simple process.

    As for hiring or having myself go around and keep track of shops stock and sales histories, that does seem like a huge hassle and I may just narrow it down to verifying the location of ShopKeepers once a week.
    I like your report system idea because it would be important to know if there is a new owner/new shops specs/ or if a shopkeeper is no longer available or becomes available somewhere else....

    I would cut some slack on some shops though for minor free advertising,
    but I like your idea where the shop owners update the stock themselves. Such as if you were to use an excel spreadsheet with Google Cloud or something where the shop owners could record and track their shops sales and it would be directly connected with, for example, my map or your stock inventory... Then that would be pretty great.

    BY THE WAY, I own F.O.M.A. Shop #53 and am trying to... buy them all :P Slowly, but hopefully surely.

    There isn't much of anything in my shop at the moment, I apologize for that, There is a picture on my profile here on the forums though of my Chistmas setup for the shop though. I am going to try and have a fancy decoration sales setup for everyone season/holiday, and next chance I get for a big deposit, I am going to start having seasonal clothing.
    I am on Arkadia at the moment and won't be back to Calypso for about a month or two. So, the shop is going to stay fairly bland for awhile.

    3. Very few shop owners are willing to update their stocks on a regular basis...
    i love and use your project, but i also saw this coming.
    because i know Entropians are as lazy as i am. once i fumbled half an hour to get my items into the list, i knew how time consuming it is and now i hesitate to to it over and over again.

    therefore i suggested you to implement a simple copy and paste "My Items"-list read out in the feedback PM i once sent you.

    maybe now it is the right time to reconsider implementing it


    thank you for sticking with this project, it is a great help for all of us!

    Can you send me an example of the kind of maps you've created so far? I'd like to see it! Yeah, hiring is a bit of a hassle, but the thought was if we just update key info (owner, shop theme, top 5 products in a store) it might help.

    Oh lol yeah, if you have lots of different random items it would take awhile.

    The challenge is definitely making it easier to track shop data as well as get listings that are up to date. Something less consuming for the shop owners (at this stage anyways).

    Your My Items idea didn't resonate with me because people would have to selectively copy their items and then manually put in the mu for each one (because the list only contains tt, amount and name). I didn't see that as making the process easier. However, if ppl like to run pure shop owner avas, then that's a different story. Just fully copy my items!

    What if adding prices are optional?

    Then Stock only needs to be updated when your stock changes?
