Currently emeralds sell for 20 in the government shop. People who run large farming operations usually hire workers and pay them about 30-60 krunas per stack of melons/pumpkins and resell the stack for about x2 the amount to emerald traders who have villagers. If a player has a villager with proper trades then he is converting a stack of melons/pumpkins for about 7-8 emeralds which is 170 krunas. Now let's say the farm owner isn't hiring and he harvests/converts his own crops then he is making 170 himself. Workers - 40 per stack Farm Owner (middleman) - 40 per stack Emerald Trader (Converts crops to emeralds via villager) - 90 per stack Total amount - 170 Krunas for one stack of melons/pumpkins I am suggesting we nerf the emerald shop to purchase 1 emerald for 5 krunas which will result in the economy being extremely balanced compared to how it currently works. Completely removing the emerald shop is not a good idea as it is a fun mechanic I and others enjoy. The government shop buys melons/pumpkins for 16 per stack and if they emerald trade they will only be making slightly more money due to it requiring more dedication which I feel is fair. Workers - 20 per stack Farmer Owner (Middleman) - Is forced to either harvest himself or convert his own emeralds because the shop buys crops for 16 per stack Emerald Trader - 20 per stack Total amount - 40 Krunas for one stack of melons/pumpkins SUGGESTION - CHANGE THE EMERALD SHOP TO PURCHASE 1 EMERALD FOR 5 KRUNAS INSTEAD OF 20 KRUNAS.
