    We now have a brand new horse market where you can buy and sell the best horses in the land! Type /horsemarket to access the market. You can see the speed, max health and jump height on the nametags of each horse as well as test ride each horse you're interested in. All the horse-related commands can be accessed with /horse.

    We also have a cleaner, new front page. Note that this is just a first revision and it's by no means complete. Things like inbox message counts, members online, as well as various server/player stats, Portal integration and such will be added over the coming weeks.

    Btarb24 created the horse plugin mentioned above (as well as doing a number of other fixes to server plugins). You can keep up with his development related updates in the Developer blog forum. Also thanks to BarryX15 for creating the new horse stalls/test ride track.

    Titles have returned to the thread view and forum view pages thanks to the awesome troubleshooting efforts of smcallah!

    Yay! horses! :D As always, please let me know if you run into any problems with the plugin. :)

    Big thanks to Barry for building the horse market and the test track for us!

    EDIT (so it's near top of thread):

    Punch the horses to get more info. Also do "/horse" to get a list of commands and their descriptions.

    Selling limits:
    • Everyone can sell up to one horse at a time.
    • Level 1 merchants can sell two horses.
    • Level 2 merchants can sell three horses at once.
    Cost to sell: 10% fee when horse is sold

    30 days on market: Once a horse is added to the market it cannot be removed by the seller. It will expire and be mailed back to you after 30 days if not sold.

    Delivery: When you buy a horse you can have it delivered anytime and anywhere. Just do /horse claim. It will send you one horse at a time, so do the command multiple times if you have multiple horses pending delivery

    Test rides: anyone can test ride any horse that's currently for sale. Punch the horse to get its id. Then do /horse ride <ID>. You cannot access your inventory

    Interesting... I love how btarb acts like it's a surprise to him when he coded the plugin xD
    Note: Do we get a mail when our horses sell? If not, that would be a cool idea.

    It worked when i simulated it in my test environment. Time shall tell if it truly works or not :p But anyway, all market horses are saved in the database, so if something goes wrong because of a bug in the plugin then we can fix it without losing the horse.

    Currently there is no fee if your horse doesn't sell. There are only 20 stalls, but an infinite number can be for sale at any time. Each time the server restarts it clears all stalls and randomly fills them again. If we end up with >20 horses for sale then you can see the stats of the extra ones by doing /horse list. You can also do sorting like so:

    /horse list speed = lists all horses in order by speed
    /horse list jump = order by jump
    /horse list health = health order

    and if there's multiple pages then you can do /horse list speed 2 = shows 2nd page of horses listed by speed.

    Can this take place online too? Like in portal there can be Buy/Sell: Auction, Horsemarket. Some people may not have access to the game, but have access to the site. Just an idea!

    It's set up in a way that it can. Though, we don't have a web page created to show it yet.

    This is awesome! Now getting a horse is so much simpler! Did this "/horseclaim" thing work beforehand or is this new?
