    I'm making a fairly large castle on rising right now (rebuilding and finishing it from when i first started it on archive last year- click here).
    I have a fun idea which I wanted to incorporate into it:

    I want to make it into a
    vault town.
    On the surface, it'll be the large castle with the intimidating face but underneath i want to make multiple 50x50 sized vaults- similar to this one that I've build for Chundi in the past (Click this - Previous_Work>Ice_Dragon_Vault).

    Each vault will contain a minimum 416 D-Chests (Likely more) worth of space.
    That's about 22464 stacks of items.
    Once purchased, it is the users forever (User can sell to other players).
    Town will contain roughly a max of 8 vaults.
    Each vault will be its own plot- ensuring that no other person can open the chests. (Save your /locks)
    Each will be sold at around 200k 350k- maybe more (Yeah I want it to be expensive haha).
    Might need to ban item frames from being placed to prevent lag?

    Sheer size of item capacity.
    Possibility to make profit by selling it in the future.
    Guaranteed security even after years of inactivity.

    This is a prebuild- user will not be able to change any blocks within the vault.
    Fairly expensive.
    Will need to set a home in the vault.


    What I need from you...
    Do you think this is a good idea?
    How much should each vault cost?
    Should this be restricted to Mayor+?
    Any thoughts/opinions in general?

    Should I hold a little opening party and the first customer gets it half off?
    Any other benefits/negatives to be added to the list?

    Do you think this is a good idea? I think it is a great idea. It allows an idea for security with users who may go offline for 6 months or longer.
    How much should each vault cost? I think vaults should start at a minimum of $250,000 ECD.
    Should this be restricted to Mayor+? No. This disables your opportunities for future business.
    Any thoughts/opinions in general? I think this is a neat idea that can only expand further.
    Should I hold a little opening party and the first customer gets it half off? No.

    Update:
    Now that I have towncontrol++, I am able to prevent anyone other than the owner themselves from entering the vault- one further level of protection.

    Do you think this is a good idea? Yes. The build is amazing and it's a great idea.
    How much should each vault cost? I'd pay around $50,000 any more and it's out of reach for me
    Should this be restricted to Mayor+? Nah, the price point restricts it enough.
    Any thoughts/opinions in general? I'm not sure your claims of permanent protection can be backed up in practice. You'd need a policy that there are to be three active town owners at all times. That way, if one goes offline for more than a month, the first vault purchaser becomes an owner and so on. Otherwise the town could get Tycoon'd and stripped for precious contents by the new owner.
    Should I hold a little opening party and the first customer gets it half off? I like the idea of a competition for discounts. Makes it more of a sport.
    Any other benefits/negatives to be added to the list? A potential negative is that you'd have to use a sethome or navigate miles of hallway to get to your vault. The place looks huge!

    Awesome! Thanks for the input :)
    The more info I get, the better I can make the place haha.

    You make some pretty good points there! I have an idea of some people i'd be willing to put down as "owners", I don't think placing customers in charge of the town is a great idea so ill probably place some trusted members of the server in if they want it. I don't think I've ever been inactive for more than 3 months on the server and it takes 6 months for even the possibility of a tycoon to take it, but its always good to have backups.

    I want to make this area leaning towards the "exclusive" side- allowing the vaults to hold a large amount of value- similar to colebex's farm perms back in archive (Im not sure if i spelt that right).
    It seems the general consensus is to have a small competition/welcoming party to open the build- I wonder what i could do.

    Thanks to everyone whose commented! I'm always looking for more input haha

    Thanks to the amazing Mission001 and Ladyvamptress, Grimoire will now have 3 active owners at all time preventing any tycoons from snatching away the loot.
    Please keep in mind, all queries about the town are to be directed towards me! LadyV and Mission are only here for security and won’t be able to answer any questions or add/remove members from future plots :)



    I’m always looking for feedback! Be sure to leave your thoughts on how to make this better

    a vault town wont work since the 1.14.4 update on the server says there is a chance you will lose everything in your chests but I like castles and I can help build it

    Thanks for the input!
    The castle probably wont be ready until after the update (im estimating the castle will take about a month to finish) so there isnt any worry of that. Also, the probability of losing items is luckly extremely low!

    Thanks for the offer! I intend to solo build the fortress but gladly accept any and all criticism :)
