    So I'm not trying to take your business or anything, but I noticed that you are VERY experienced in the world of resource mining. I have an alt who is ready to take on the job, and he was just wondering how to go about things. You seem to always go out of stock (xD), and I was wondering what you specifically mine for. You must be VERY busy. I just want to know hours of time, what you mine, and after that, I do have vends that I can use. THANKS!

      If he's ignoring you, he probably can't see this either. He might see my comment if I'm not ignored, but I'm not sure since the post should be invisible, and you can't show a comment without it's source on here

      So, you can see in my emporium/shop thread what I mine for...ores, marble, oil, gems, blocks, tree trunks, berries, rubber, cotton are the primary things...and my pricing which is a bit low, I'm told (but it also allows others who want to resell to buy from my store too).

      I mostly mine in Arctic Mines (for oil), Mountain Mines (best for ores, IMO), and Desert (for sand). I have bush farms set up for picking berries, rubber, and cotton, but I find that immensely boring compared to finding ores in mines. If you read through the shop thread, you can even see how the shop grew...I started just mining ores and with three vends. A kind player gave me a boost by allowing me to sell them some dirt, I think, so I could buy my first three vends from the cubit store (I was a few 100c short and I didn't trust other players yet in game as I had only been playing for a few weeks).

      I started my little shop by selling stone, iron and coal. As I made money for more vends, I included gold and silver ores. As I made more, I added oil. As I made enough for even more vends, I included gems and marble (just white and blue, as I rarely mined in Forests to get black marble). All this was done with my starter realm. There are so many builders in this game that ores are always in demand. Apparently oil is a big deal right now too. Gems are a fluctuating commodity as is Marble. Tree trunks are always in high demand also, but are a pain to mine, IMO.

      The nice thing with the new Community Store set up by SuperXtreme is you can rent from a trusted set of folks - SuperXtreme and WhimisicalFirefly to have a great vending location, if you don't want to do it in your personal realm.

      I personally enjoy mining for ores, marble and oil as there is technique and discovery involved (unlike the bushes which is just mindless picking). Any blocks that I sell are just because I have a lot of them from doing the mining of the ores. Per blocks, sand is in highest demand...and surprisingly dirt sells pretty well also. Sometimes water sells, but right now snow and ice are selling well (they all look to be a bit seasonal).

      The key though to always being out of stock in the shop is to have reasonable prices, and trying to be consistent with refilling. When I started out, I was refilling multiple times a day. But now I typically only refill about once a week, as I have a lot of stuff going on in RL. When I first started out, I was playing the game way too many hours a day, so I was mining almost constantly and had a lot of inventory.

      Also, only load a few stacks in the vends at a time. I found if I loaded 8 stacks, they'd all be purchased at once, and I'd be out of inventory/stock. I started only loading up to 4 stacks max (and typically only 1 or 2) and that helped me to build up some inventory for when I couldn't mine daily, but still wanted to refill my vends regularly.

      That was a really long and detailed messaged but I loved it. I thank you Beachy for helping supply builders and allowing them to focus on building :)!

      Tysm! I have a berry farm, and was thinking of selling ice/snow. Perhaps oil would be a good idea as well, especially because of all the crafting recipes Kew wants to come out with. Thanks!

      BTW, I just took dyes out of my store, as I'm having a hard time doing berries AND dyes. Dyes sell pretty well (I was only selling red, blue, yellow, green and black), but I'm really low on berries right now. If you like picking berries, that's a great shop to have as there is always demand from various builders and crafters. Berries, I personally feel, are better to sell than just dyes so people can decide if they want to use them for potions/solutions or dyes. Here's the link to my shop thread so you can see the prices (and you can even see in an old post from varien my old prices)... http://forums2.cubiccastles.com/index.php?p=/discussion/13326/b3achys-mini-emporium-specializing-in-various-resources-blocks-including-deep-forest-items/p1 -- We need a lot more resource shops in game for the builders, IMO.

      As I always tell folks, it's a nice consistent income. You aren't going to make a lot at once, but over time, it's very profitable (especially if you keep your shop restocked daily).

      I forgot to mention...it's a personal preference, but I like to try to have about 2x what I'm stocking in the store in my back room personal inventory so I have at least two restocks before needing to mine. Anything less than 2x, and I know I need to be out there mining for more inventory. (I'm running really low right now because I've been building more than mining, and I've got a huge project planned soon too).

      Oh per how much I mine...usually I try to mine a couple hours a day, when I was on regularly. If you know what you are stocking, you just focus on mining for those things or the items you need to build up inventory/stock.

      Oh, yea, and if you like harvesting berries...you also might want to make some of the pies and stuff...Firefly sells a lot of food at her store. She's got much better prices than I do, so if you chose to sell food like the berry cakes/pies, check out her prices.

      I was selling pies for like 20c at my friend's shop. I enjoy baking :3
