Things

(Experimental v0.7)

Welcome to the wonderful world of things!
__________________________________________________________

What is a thing?
2ANDZnD.png -These scissors are a thing.

...That's all you have to know...

but if you want to get technical...

Things are virtual objects belonging to your TBG account.
Things are freely transferable between accounts.
Things are represented by a small image.

Things do not have a value.
Things do not have a purpose.
That is unless you give them one.

__________________________________________________________

Giving Things
To give another user one of your things just make a post here explaining who you want to give what (and maybe why you are giving it to them). I will then transfer the thing to that user's vault.

Trading Things
Fill out this form to trade things with another user:

Trading with: [user's name]
Offering: [what you want to give them]
Requesting: [what you want them to give you]

If that user accepts I will transfer the things between vaults.
__________________________________________________________

Vaults
A vault is a post I make where I keep track of your things. When you sign up for a vault I will link it here.

Secondary Vaults
Users are allowed to open up to 2 secondary vaults (for now).
Secondary vaults can be used for whatever you want, such as businesses or collections.
Things can be freely transferred between your vaults.
Secondary vaults can be named whatever you want, just tell me the name when you want to open one.
__________________________________________________________

Thing Functions
Official Thing Functions can be found below this post, but here are some links anyways.

Thing Factory
Recycling Center
Thingland Center of Entrepreneurship*

*Go here to make your own (unofficial) Thing Function.
__________________________________________________________

Signing up

What if I told you that you could have a thing of your very own?
Sign up today to receive a free thing and a vault to store your things in.
(just say "sign up" or something to sign up or something)
__________________________________________________________


This TBG is constantly changing. More features to things will be revealed soon.

Re: Things

Thing Factory

You can only use the factory once per day.

Want to make your own things? Then this is the place to be.
Just fill out this form and we will make it in our factory!

Name of thing:
Image of thing: (will be resized if it's too large)
Description of thing: (optional)

After you make a thing it will go directly to your vault.

Mass producing things
Yeah, one thing is nice, but what if you wanted two? ten? a hundred?
Mass producing allows you to produce a large quantity of the same thing.
Here is the form for mass producing things:

Name of thing:
Image of thing: (will be resized if it's too large)
Description of thing: (optional)
Amount of things produced: (min 2, max 10000)

You can only mass produce something once per day.

Thing Transformation
Fill out this to transform a thing into something new:

Current thing:
Name of new thing:
Image of new thing: (will be resized if it's too large)
Explanation of transformation: (optional)

A more versatile way of transforming things will come later.

Again, you can only use one of these actions per day.

Re: Things

Recycling Center

Give us things you don't want anymore and we will use them to make more things in our factory.
If you see something here that you like you can take it for free.
You can take a maximum of 5 things from the recycling center per day.
You can give an unlimited amount of things to the recycling center each day.
Please note that after a while your thing will rust.

Recycled Things
LWRVQjQ.png Rusted Thing (x9,918,900)*
NwQPN9Q.png Golden Candy Cane (x9994)

*this number is not guaranteed to be accurate

Incinerator
The incinerator can convert any thing directly into a rusted thing.
You can use it on a maximum of 10000 things per day.
Use it at your own risk.

Re: Things

Thingland Center of Entrepreneurship

Come here if you would like to open a business!
Examples of a businesses include shops, banks, etc.

How to make a business:
Just make your own file in the Game Files subforum explaining your business and how to use it and I will link it here.

Thing transfers made via a thing business will be made with the help of business reports. Business reports must be posted into the main topic (here) by the owner of the business in order for a transaction to officially happen.

Here is an example:

Bob opens hot dog store
John trades a rock for a hot dog
Sarah trades a lamp for 3 hot dogs
Bob posts the following business report

Bob's Hot Dog Store Business Report
John buys a hot dog with a rock
Sarah buys 3 hot dogs with a lamp

redgreenandblue transfers the items between vaults
Everyone is happy

(essentially I just need you to tell me what to do so I know what things to transfer)

It is important to note that businesses can only transfer things between vaults, not create new ones.

All Thing Businesses:
Thing Thrift Store

Re: Things

I want a vanilla ice cream cone, no sprinkles, chocolate coating, or fancy cone as my thing.

Question: Is there a benefit to making only 1 thing instead of mass producing?

Also, ideally, a single thing would be better in some cases because of supply and demand.
I have no idea where this economy is going to go though.
