This guide will show you how to set up your own shop.
Create a ChestShop with Buy & Sell
If I want to sell 64 (1 stack) of cobblestones for $64 and buy them for $32 then I'll create a sign in front or top or bottom of the chest that would contain the cobblestone items to follow the format:
so to sell 64 cobblestones for $64 and buying them for $32, I would do this:
You can also replace Cobblestone with ? and it will auto-fill for you based on what's inside the chest. Your chest must include something for this to happen or it will not update the sign.
Create a ChestShop with ONLY Buy or Sell
To sell 64 cobblestones for $64 with no options for players to sell them to you, do this:
As you notice the : 32 S part is missing. That's how you only enable the buy part. You can do the same for sell only by just displaying 32 S instead.
Here's some examples of how you can link up the sign to the chest in different ways:
LWC is an auto-locking plugin that provides protection to your chests/furnaces/etc to prevent unauthorized access to your items.
Chests/Furnaces/etc are auto-lockable in Survival/Creative/Skyblock gamemodes by simply placing down it. For example:
To lock a Chest/Furnace/etc, simply run /lock and right-click on the block you want to apply lock to:
To unlock a Chest/Furnace/etc you own, simply run /unlock and right-click on the block you want to remove the lock from:
To turn your Chest/Furnace/etc to a public-lock for others to access without destroying your block, simply run /cpublic and right-click on block to apply the change to:
To give someone access to your Chest/Furnace/etc, simply run /cmodify <player> and right-click on block to apply the change to. For example, if I want to give ilovethem access to my chest, I simply do /cmodify ilovethem and right-click on my chest. Here's a pic to show what it'll look like:
If I want to remove ilovethem from my chest I simply add minus symbol (-) to the left of the player's name: /cmodify -ilovethem and right-click on chest to apply the change. Here's a pic of what it'll look like:
This will guide you the basics on how to use WorldEdit commands. There are a tons of commands to manipulate the blocks in Minecraft,
but that will take me years to develop all of the guides for it so I will only give you the basics and you can figure out the rest.
Here's a link to a good one to start with: https://minecraft-worldedit.fandom.com/wiki/Worldedit_Commands
Making Selections (First step before running any WorldEdit commands that require selections) :
To make a selection, you have two options. You can either use a Wood Axe to make the selections (left click for one point, right click for other point) or run //pos1 & //pos2 to make the selections at your location when you run the command at.
For example, I want to make the selection to change a square/rectangle area into glowstone so I would use a Wood Axe to make the selections. Doing the left-click with Wood Axe will show the following message:
and the right-click will show this instead:
Congrats, now you have made the selections. Continue to the next part where you run a command to make changes to the selection!
There are a lot of options that you can apply to pretty much any W/E commands. Since there's quite a bit out there, I will only cover two basic concepts:
To set one block type, simply use the block type as the pattern. Example: //set glowstone
To set a random pattern of two different blocks, simply do: //set 50%glowstone,50%stone This means it will apply 50% glowstone and 50% stone to equal to 100%. Now there has been reports that you don't need to equal it up to 100% so you may have to mess it around to fit your liking.
This will set all of the blocks in a region to whichever pattern you selected. To give an example, I will run the following command:
to turn this:
//replace <from_block> <to_pattern>
This command will replace the following block(s) into different block(s). Here's an example of how it works:
Running //replace glowstone stone will turn this:
This command will generate the walls with the following pattern you provide in the selection you made. Since this was done with only one layer, only one block-height of walls will be shown. However, if you increase one of the selections up a few more blocks, the //walls command will generate the walls at that height specified by the selection.
Running //walls stone will turn this:
This command will generate the pattern you provide at the center of the 2 selections you made. This is ideal if you're trying to get the center of a region to build something in. If the X/Y coords are even, it will show as 2 blocks in center. If it's in odd value, it'll show as one block instead.
Running //center iron_block will turn this:
//sphere <pattern> <radius#>
This command will generate a sphere based on the radius you give at your location.
Running //sphere glowstone 10 will make this:
//hsphere <pattern> <radius#>
This command will generate a hollow sphere based on the radius you give at your location.
Running //hsphere glowstone 10 will make this (this is me being inside the hollow sphere):
//cyl <pattern> <radius#> <height#>
This command will generate a cylinder based on radius and height you give at your location.
Running //cyl glowstone 5 5 will make this:
//hcyl <pattern> <radius#> <height#>
This command will generate a hollow cylinder based on radius and height you give at your location.
Running //hcyl glowstone 5 5 will make this:

c. Legal Responsibility
In the event of any legal complaints against your content, you will be responsible for resolving these issues. Your content will be hidden from the public until if and when any complaints are resolved.
Chaotic United is not responsible for any lost revenue as a result of any legal issues.
Section II - Premium File Submission Guidelines
By submitting any file as PREMIUM on our download center, you agree to also abide by the following guidelines:
a. Account Balance
Your account balance may take up to 14 days to withdrawal to your payment method. It will rarely take this long, however as money continues to circulate around Chaotic United, we cannot guarantee that any given user's account balance is in the specific account at any given time. As such, all withdrawals are manually confirmed. Normally, this will take no longer than a day. But in the event of being unable to transfer funds, it may take time. We will always strive to get funds transferred as quickly as possible. If you have not recieved your funds after 14 days, please create a support ticket.
In the event that you are suspended from being able to submit premium files, your account balance will be delivered to your desired payment.
b. File Uploads
Files must be uploaded directly to the CU website, you cannot host them on a 3rd-party website. This is to ensure that people who purchase files don't find themselves without a download link later on down the road.
Reservation of Rights
Chaotic United reserves the right to remove any file for any reason. In addition, Chaotic United reserves the right to alter, modify, or update these terms without notice. If you disagree with these terms, you may contact a staff member for questions or concerns. If you ultimately do not agree to these terms, you will not be allowed to submit any files to our download center.
If you are interested in uploading premium files to the CU website, you are encouraged to read over this info first.
As part of our new expansion efforts, we have introduced a content platform element to CU. You can upload all sorts of content. Starting with Minecraft content, and expanding over time, it is set to allow users to easily share their content with the community. Additionally, especially talented users may submit their files as Premium. What this means is that their files can be made as paid resources, and share it with the community. There are some things you should know before you get going, and most relevant info can be found here. Additional questions should be directed at haloman30.
Uploading a Premium Resource
The process is incredibly simple and hands-off. You create your build/world/design/other premium content, and get it tuned up nicely. You may then upload your file to our Downloads system. Then, you will upload some screenshots. After that, you will enter some information about the file. Lastly, you may choose either Free or Paid. By clicking 'Paid', you mark the file as a Premium resource. You should ONLY upload Premium resources under the appropriate 'Premium' category. All free files should be under the normal categories. And that's it! When people buy your item, it will be linked to your account as Credit that can be withdrawn at your leisure. Alternatively, you may leave it on your account as a stockpile/savings. It's all up to you!
We rarely will remove content from the Premium listings. Horrible content that is being offered up as Premium, or content that may be decent but not worthy of payment will be downvoted by the community itself - and just won't make money. If content violates any community rules, or contains any extreme nudity or contains pornographic content, it will be made unavailable to the community. We love dirty jokes as much as you do, but we aren't a porn site. There are more than enough of those for you to enjoy elsewhere on the internet.
Withdrawing Your Earnings
When someone buys your Premium resource, the money goes into your Account Credit. You can withdraw the money to your PayPal account at any time. Withdrawals will need to be approved and as such you will not receive them immediately. This is simply for us to make sure the money exists for us to pay you. We don't want to deal with negative PayPal balances on our end - you understand. This usually shouldn't take too long, unless you attempt to withdraw in later hours where our Admins are not available. It will rarely take any more than a day, but the general rule is don't plan on having the money at the exact moment you press the button, just for safety.
Chaotic United will collect 15% of all Premium file revenue to go towards server costs, website feature upgrades, server upgrades, and so on. Additionally, a 0.60 USD (60 cents) transaction fee will be taken out. The rest of the money is yours.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why can't I get 100% of the profits? You didn't make any of my content, I did! >:^( A: Correct. We did not develop your content. However, we do host the website that you have uploaded the file to, and that host isn't free. Besides, we are very generous with only taking 15% of the profits. Some sites demand 20% or even 30% - which is just absurd.
Q: What if I create a build of a super sexy lady but I don't show any nudity? A: This is fully permitted, but I don't know if anyone will be willing to buy it. Those kinds of builds are more of a screenshot piece. You're more than welcome to try, though.
Q: If I upload a file, do CU staff members get to download it for free? A: Managers, Administrators, and Owners can download your file without needing to pay. Moderators and below must pay, however.
Q: If I upload something such as a SkyWars or SurvivalGames arena, will CU use it? A: If we find interest in your build, we will generally inform you about it. We will never use your builds for free without your permission. You may allow us to use them free of charge, but otherwise you will receive a payment for the build before we use it.
Q: Why can't I get my withdrawal immediately? A: As we mentioned before, we want to ensure we can actually pay you first. If we can't pay you for whatever reason (ex: the money in CU's PayPal was used on server bills), then we will need to transfer money into it beforehand. Don't worry - you will never not have your account credit. If need be, CU will pay you out of pocket.
Q: What if my content is commentary on a sensitive topic, such as racism, sexism, etc? A: Commentary or not, if your content is deemed overly offensive, it will be removed. Otherwise, anyone could make racist content and just say "oh, its just commentary so its fine :D". Just because it's commentary, doesn't mean it can just bypass the rules. Ultimately, we are the judges in these cases.
Q: Can my content promote another community or website? A: You can ask us first, however in most cases it is not allowed. Exceptions would be any content relating to Nuclear District, Hurricane Craft, Elaztek Studios, United AlyCraft, and any other members or partners of the Chaotic United Network. You can find a list of those names here.
