Merchant Villages has many things to it and the spawn can seem a bit daunting at first. Here's a guide I've made for new players or anyone who'd like to read it. Hit "Show" on the spoilers to see an image of the description.
Let's start with the central area!
Please read the board before you leave.
If you take a left, you'll be able to find the custom recipe station, you can even craft spawn eggs!
Further left of the center area is the weather station where you can control the weather and time of day.
Straight ahead from the center area is the bank! (You can also get there by typing /warp bank).
We use Emeralds as currency ($).
Punch to sell, Right click to buy.
Next up are the main shops!
These are directly north of the center area but you can also get there by typing /warp shops.
Here there are player chest shops to the right and admin shops, as well as more player shops, to the left.
There are eight admin shopkeepers directly to the left and the green one sells some more spawn eggs!
There's also a secret admin shopkeeper that sells overpowered tools that can be further enchanted for "OP Tools"!
In the player shops area there's an enchantment table and there's also a hidden area under the large tree that sometimes contains more player shops.
There's also a shopkeeper here that can help you get decoheads, (Heads that look like decorations, such as fruit).
A huge part of the server is the mall!
Here, players can rent out little "mallshops" weekly (you can extend the rent) and make shops inside the area.
To get there, the easiest way is to just type /warp mall.
To rent a shop, just go into an empty area, right click the sign and click rent.
We also have a museum if you're interested. It's probably more interesting than you'd expect because we have map art there. You can ask Father to give you a copy of the map art if you'd like in exchange for art credits (which you get by voting), you can also request your own pictures.
To get there, just type /warp museum. There is also /warp artgallery and /warp Ikea with more paintings and art.
If you're new to Craftbook, check out /warp craftbook.
It will explain the basics of it and trust me, it's a very useful plugin.
Things like ranged chest collectors, auto planters and more are possible.
We also have the Mob Arena plugin if you're interested!
We have two arenas but one is a much harder with better rewards.
It's free and you pick between 1 of 15 classes to play as.
To join, just type /ma j [arena name].
That should cover most of the important stuff, check out this this thread as well by Father. It has the rest of the important stuff that you'll need to know on the server.
Watch out for giants in loot world /rtp loot.
