Good news, everyone!
Thanks to the Forestry plugin, we now have a mail order system in place for some of the rare/unobtainable items out there, including obsidian totems and various end-of-line bee princesses. All items cost emeralds and can be ordered by sending a letter to the trade station with the appropriate payment.
Coming Soon: Maintained Village for trading to testificates, warp nexus at spawn, property protection (MyTown)(In testing), donor dimension (In testing).
Currently available stations are:
- Totem – 1 Obsidian Totem for 1 Emerald
- Knowledge – 3 Knowledge Fragments for 1 Emerald
- Forest – 1 Forest Princess for 2 Emeralds
- Meadow – 1 Meadows Princess for 2 Emeralds
- Edenic – 1 Edenic Princess for 4 Emeralds
- Imperial – 1 Imperial Princess for 5 Emeralds
To order items through the mail, you’re going to need to do a little starter beekeeping (shameless plug: The FTB wiki has a decent intro to beekeeping in their Getting Started guide). Once you have some propolis and honey drops, you’ll need to make a mailbox and the associated items for sending mail (letters and stamps) (note: it costs 1n to send a letter, and an additional 1n for each attached item).
Armed with these basic items for sending mail (mailbox, letters, stamps) it’s time to send an order…
Right-click with the blank letter in your hand to open up the letter writing interface.
With the interface open, click on the letter icon (it should say player when your mouse cursor is over it) to change over to the Trade Station letter interface.
Put in the name of the trade station in the top text box and attach the necessary emeralds and postage (don’t worry, the interface will remind you how many emeralds you need). Right-click on your mailbox with the filled out letter in your hand and you should receive your purchase nearly immediately!
Hey, look… pretty pictures at the bottom!
