It’s been a while since the last update for the trading post mod. Today I’m releasing a new version that implements a transaction log, trading of potions and similar items with effects and Alignment offers for the server market.
The effects of all items, including preperations, potions and cocktails should now be preserved when trading them through the guild trading post. For server market offers, the GM can activate them and configure the magnitutde through the UI when setting up the offer.
All items with effects now have an icon with a tooltip showing their effects list. *Note that this is imported from the default item_effects.xml file. If you made changes to this file on your server, the trading UI won’t display them correctly and show the default values instead.
The server market (Sell To Crown, Server Sales) now support Alignment offers. Players can buy or sell Alignment for coins if such offers are set up by the GM/Admins. The guild trading tab does not support this type of transaction however.
You can also set player alignment limits in the Administration tab to allow buying and selling alignment within a defined range only.
Sometimes, item transactions fail and cause players to lose items. There’s a number of reasons for this. It could be players leaving the trading posts during a transaction, dropping items, merging or splitting item stacks, incomptaibility with other mods, technical difficulties, bugs in the mod or in the game. In earlier versions this was almost impossible to track for GMs, as failed trades weren’t logged.
The new transaction log in the Admin tab keeps track of every single item transaction that the mod attempts and reports success or failure. I hope this is useful for Admins to trace back any issue that a player may report.

Download and unpack the new server mod v1.5. Overwrite the old files. You may backup and re-use the old config.cs since this file didn’t change. Then restart the server.
If any issues occur after the update, please report them in the forums. Don’t forget to attach a server logfile and a precise description (or screenshot) of the issue. Thank you.
