Solved Help With Currency/Shop System

Post by DeafDragon12 June 2nd 2024, 7:25 pm

I'll admit i'm not very good at developing systems but I had a general idea of what to do. I wanted to develop a currency and shop system. This shop system would be used to get items that would go into their trunk/inventory (to which I'd like to also develop so players have a place that stores items they buy in a shop or items given to them from other players).

This is the shop I'd like to establish, or at least the general look with the Name of the item, the item image, the description, the prices (as per the currency system) and the add/subtract items to when you buy the items in the shop.

I'd like to do a currency system in where I can use harry potter currencies- Galleons, Sickles and Knuts. Knuts are your lowest currency, sickles in between and galleons the top. It takes 29 knuts to become a sickle and 17 sickles to become a galleon. I'd like to have them to the next type of currency the moment it hits (29 for knuts and 17 for sickles) the last number. The currency would be used in the shop system and with a donation if anyone wants to donate money. I say this because I saw you could give people points in the admin panel and I'm wanting to use that for house points instead.


I've seen that people try to use stuff like VBulletin and such, but I don't want to use it. I saw this in my search for similar topics and I like it, I don't know if and how it'd work.

I am using a PHPBB3 board, site link: https://saudaderpg.forumotion.com/. I'm more than happy to use a html webpage as part of the admin panel. The only problem is, I'm not sure exactly what it is I'm doing as I've never really made a shop to be honest. I'd love to make one for a pet shop (magical menagerie), ingredients shop (apothecary shop), book store (flourish and blotts). I don't know how I'd get the codes to function correction and fire away and function correctly.

Good morning!

I want to clarify - do you want to display one currency in the product card instead of three depending on the number of coins the user has?

No, I haven't, I'll do that, I just posted because I've (1) never done this before) and (2) I have hesitations when I've never done it before 😂

Honestly, having three up might be straight forward and easier to identify so I'll say three.

Sorry for double posting, but I've done that.

An alternative that I could do based on that thread but don't really want to do is a thread.

With points system, you can make one currency that will automatically decrease if you buy something in the shop. The functionality of the forums does not provide for the creation of different types of points.

Besides, where should the items a user buys go? Unfortunately, you can't achieve automatism here either and will have to manually add the item to the user (if we're talking about fixing purchases in the profile field).

You can create a separate field in the user profile for each currency - then there will be no automatism. That is, the user will have to write somewhere that he wants to buy a certain product for such a currency. A moderator/administrator (forum staff who can edit user profiles) comes in. This person removes a certain amount of ‘money’ from the profile field and adds the desired item to the user.

More information about user profile fields:
- Personalized Profile fields / Warning System
- Edit profiles fields browsing through the members profiles

I don't really want to add more profile fields, so perhaps I'll use the points and figure out something else for House Points.

When it comes to pets, I'll have the pets displayed in a thread with the cost then instructions as to how to obtain it, and they can do an rp (short) of obtaining it or reply to the post saying they want it, and we'd withdraw from the admin panel.
