Subj: Curio Market and Curio QOL updates

Hi everybody,

In order to facilitate and centralise the trading of curios, the
curiomarket has been developed. Its purpose is to offer a unified
ingame platform for buy and sell orders. As part of this a series of
quality of life changes have also been made to existing curio commands,
with a few extra new ones that hopefully will mean players will feel
more positive about curios.

New syntax:
CURIOMARKET SHOW <BUY|SELL> [ALL|SET|PIECE] [<pattern>]
CURIOMARKET SHOW <BUY|SELL> FULFILLABLE
CURIOMARKET ADD <BUY|SELL> <SET|PIECE> <id> FOR <amount|id>
<SET|PIECE|GOLD|CREDITS>
CURIOMARKET ADD SELL <SET|PIECE> <id> FOR ANY
CURIOMARKET FULFIL <order> WITH <amount|id> <SET|PIECE|GOLD|CREDITS>
CURIOMARKET REMOVE <order>
CURIOMARKET REVIEW <BUY|SELL>
CURIOMARKET WATCH <BUY|SELL> <SET|PIECE> <id>
CURIOMARKET WATCH REMOVE <id>
CURIOMARKET WATCH LIST <BUY|SELL>
CURIOMARKET COMPLETE <partial> FOR <amount> <GOLD|CREDITS> [CONFIRM]
CURIOMARKET VIEW <COLLECTIONS|SETS|PIECES> [<pattern>]
CURIOMARKET VIEW <COLLECTION|SET> <id>

Players can now buy or sell curio pieces or completed sets for another
piece, another set, credits or gold. It is possible to complete an order
at any time, without the need for the other party to be online or
present. Both parties will receive a message, even when offline, with
the details of the completed order. Orders will come with a fee of 500
gold for a piece and 5000 gold for a set upon listing, this is both a
convenience tax and a way to deter flooding the market. With the ANY
keyword the cost goes to the completing party, as the offering party
doesn't know what they will get.

In order to help players discover what curios are available, the
CURIOMARKET VIEW commands offer access to an always up-to-date database
of all collections, sets and pieces.

As a note, the COMPLETE will only place up buy orders, not fulfill any
existing sell orders.

A watch functionality was also implemented to make it easy to keep an
eye out for offers that are of interest to you.

New and adjusted syntax:
CURIO LIST [ALL|COMPLETE|PARTIAL(S)|PIECE(S)] [<pattern>]
CURIO LIST [SET|COLLECTION] <name>
CURIO SUMMARY [<collection>]
CURIO TRADE <COMPLETE|PIECE> <curio> TO <person> FOR <amount|id>
<COMPLETE|PIECE|GOLD|CREDITS>
CURIO COMPLETE <curio>
CURIO RUB <ALL|PIECE> <curio>
CURIO RUB <INCLUDE|EXCLUDE> <curio>

The old CURIOS commands have been removed and turned into CURIO LIST.
You can now search all list types for patterns, or use the SET and
COLLECTION lists.

Mass rubbing now possible without using a script, with of course the
possibility to skip over certain pieces should you wish to hang on to
them. You will still get the output for everything, as some players want
to keep seeing that. Note that if you hold on to a lot of pieces you
will get a lot of output!

Direct trading has been merged with the old transfer command into one
command. You will still need to ask the other party for the id of the
piece or complete set.

A great help should be the COMPLETE command, which allows you to target
a piece or existing partial and combine it with what you have in your
inventory.

And finally the summary is there to give you a roster type overview of
what pieces you are holding. If pieces are a part of a partial they will
be counted but marked with an asterisk. Helpful to let you see what you
might want to make orders for, or trade with others.

For further information we'd like to refer you to HELP CURIOMARKET and
HELP CURIOS.

    First: This is a great update. Curios just became way less of a pain.

    Second: Is listing a single curio counted as a piece or a set for the fee?
    Any sufficiently advanced pun is indistinguishable from comedy.

    Piece = 1 piece
    Set = 1 rare and 9 common pieces
    Collection = 4 sets

    People keep misusing the terms.

    I hope we get a chance to sell and buy complete collections as packs soon, I already ideaed it.

    I'm curious about some things too:

    It's really not possible to basically place something like this on the curiomarket: I want piece x and I would offer piece a or b or c in return ... ? (Just making sure. I'm still not entirely convinced that it isn't just me being a dolt here.. )

    Also when does CURIO POWERS ever show anything at all? Apparently the stuff the sileni collection does is not a 'special power'. So what is?

    Thankies!

    CURIO POWERS only magic item, damage resistance, damage enhancement and travel curios.

    CURIOMARKET ADD BUY PIECE <virtualid> FOR <pieceid> PIECE

    (You can get the virtualid with CURIOMARKET VIEW)

    There is no 'or' sadly, your best bet is to list all three as buy orders for the same virtualid and delist them when one is finished.

    So, what's the command if I just want to post my whole list of curio pieces for whatever people want to offer for them, only taking random other pieces? 


    Edit: in other words, I want to be able to log into a character, input a single command, and offer all the single pieces on the curiomarket for any other random piece. Can I do that? 
    If I'm not good enough for Lusternia, then it is no longer good enough for me.

    @Ianir I have gone from really disliking curios to enjoying them. This is a really nice QoL upgrade, thank you (and anyone who helped)!

    You can do it per-piece (CURIOMARKET ADD SELL PIECE <id> FOR ANY), but not all at once. That's... a situation we never actually thought of, and due to it being fairly unlikely (and extremely easy to trigger or do with a regex s/r), not one we're likely to support.

    I second the thank you / appreciation on this.  I know this was a team project, so to the people involved in putting it together, thank you!  This makes playing with curios so, so much better.

    This is awesome, kudos to everyone involved!

    Some low priority things which I think would be nice when you CURIOMARKET SHOW BUY:
    1) differentiate between "piece" and "rare"
    2) change the layout a little bit on the "Request" portion - it would be nice to break up the "set" line and the piece name. Currently, due to the length of the names of some pieces, the set is completely hidden. 
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,821 Transcendent
    PS I'm told that this is still a "living" project, it's definitely not done.  I know there are still a few other QoL improvements coming to it, so don't be afraid to make suggestions!

    Being able to post complete curios to sell /browse complete curios to buy really makes this curiomarket great.

    Also, since the market's gone up I am down 99 credits.  And have completed 16 curio sets that were sitting around as partials.

    CURIOMARKET COMPLETE <partial> FOR <amount> <GOLD|CREDITS> [CONFIRM



    What exactly does this do? Watch out for the pieces your partial needs and try to finish it based on your offered price?

  • LeradLerad Member Posts: 2,403 Transcendent
    Checks the partial you specified, and puts up a buy request for every missing piece in that partial. Each request put up will be going for the same price - the one you specify with this command.

  • VivetVivet , of Cows and Crystals Member Posts: 2,194 Transcendent
    The new commands are all rather confusing, but even going along slowly bit by bit it's a refreshing change.

    PSA: Don't create a trigger to mass put your curio pieces up for sale without first putting aside the gold you don't want to spend into a pack or something.

    I've idea'd this but I'd like to put it here as well just in case (it really bugs me and I'm still not used to ideas actually being read, please don't hit me):

    The SELL syntax for the curiomarket is inconsistent thus leading me to always typo it. If you wish to place a sell order you have to type "piece 123" for the piece you wish to sell and " 123 piece" for the one you wish in return. It would be enourmously helpful if it was always the same order of piece+id or id+piece but not both in one simple syntax. Thank you!

    EDIT: Okay, so looking at the syntax again I guess it makes sense if you're trading for gold or credits. If it was possible to drop the 1st 'piece' from 'curiomarket add sell piece 123 for 123 piece' that would be helpful though (since each thing has it's own ID I don't see atm how the 'piece' is needed there to differ between complete or piece for sale). But if that's not possible / wanted I guess I'll just have to live with it. :/

    That aside THANK YOU for the market! :)

    Theoretically (I haven't tried it but it was suggested) if you sell a piece for "any" other piece, the gold cost for listing should end up being paid by the buyer, specifically to allow people to do exactly what you're trying to accomplish.

    Yeah, for context, I was listing my rares for sale for a few credits. I won't take "any" for them - I'd rather get something of slight value. I will list non rares for any, sure. But my trigger to list my rares bankrupted me, pretty much.

    Gold sink success!
    To me you're forever the kick runner from 3 years ago, the guy who does domoths when no one is online and whines that he's got no competition, and the guy that use to only turn up to fights when the numbers favoured him.
  • ShaddusShaddus His Imperial Altness Outside your window.Member Posts: 7,652 Transcendent
    I just went through and made a trigger that sells all my singles for x amount, and all my rares for slightly higher. Profit!
    If I'm not good enough for Lusternia, then it is no longer good enough for me.
  • ShaddusShaddus His Imperial Altness Outside your window.Member Posts: 7,652 Transcendent
    Would it be possible to add something like CURIOMARKET SELLING to see a list of everything you've posted for sale or trade?

    Again, theoretically, listing a rare piece for "any" should only accept a different rare.  Have not tested but that was part of the request for the "any" command when it was suggested.

    No questions right now, I just want to say that this thing is brilliant. Thank you so much. 
  • CiaranCiaran Member Posts: 771 Mythical
    It really is a great feature.  It's also a great way to introduce another gold sink.

    Good job all around :)

    Definitely liking the new system.  Finally finished a Red Heart curio after holding on to a partial for longer than I care to remember.
