Trading allows the avatar to exchange items with other players or NPC’s for rewards or items that are required to complete the objective. The trade function is a major feature of 3DHive that allows players to have a more interactive game.

How trading in 3DHive WorksEdit

In 3DHive, the trade function works in a very simplistic way. The player must have a certain amount of coins to be able to buy the item from an NPC or from another player. Each item as a set cost attached to it (The number of coins required in exchange for that item), and only if that cost is met, can the player buy the item.

Player and NPC TradingEdit

To start, you first need to allow your avatar to carry items, and determine the maximum number of coins it can carry.

After you have created your avatar, go to the settings tab.

After you have done this, you must now create the item that you would like to be traded, but remember ONLY REWARDS can be traded, that means each item that you have created must be attached to a reward trigger for it to obtain the ability to be traded.

So once you have created your item
