This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Compatible with 1.38 up to 1.67

As requested, I added a feature to buy gems/metals in quantity. Sorry it took me months to implement this, I was kinda busy Translations are still welcome.

This is a small chest to make life easier for all you RGM collectors out there When you buy it from the catalog, it'd come with a few random rocks/gems/metals stocked in its inventory (you can now turn off this feature in the tuning xml). Note that for these randomly generated RGM, you'll have to take them out and collect them before you can send them to be smelt/cut since they're not set as collected.

With this object, you can buy gems and metals (prices are now tunable too):

Single piece:
-Large : §850
-Regular : §500
-Uncut : §350
-Random : §750

-Large : §850
-Regular : §500
-Unsmelted/Ore : §350
-Random : §750

Gem Set
-Large : §10,000
-Regular : §5,000

Complete Set:
-Large : §500,000
-Regular : §200,000
-Uncut : §20,000

-Large : §100,000
-Regular : §15,000
-Unsmelted/Ore : §10,000

All gems and metals are available regardless of required location, provided you have the required EPs installed.

Available in Decorative/Misc for §500.

Available gem cuts:
-Emerald Cut
-Oval Cut
-Pear Cut
-Plumbbob Cut
-Marquis Cut
-Crystal Ball Cut
-Brilliant Cut
-Heart-Shaped Cut
-Polished Split Cut
-Star Cut
-Spire Cut
-Skull Cut
-Sculptor's Egg Cut
-Gem Dust Cut
-Sun Cut
-Moon Cut

Compatibility: 1.38 and up.

Also, I read some comments saying that if you buy a complete set only to sell them back for a profit, it takes so long to sell them all since you have to sell them one by one. Therefore I made this mod to aid it

Merry Christmas!
