6.11.3 Shop Cache
Shop Caches are directly linked to the way Crafter Shelves work. When a pattern is bought from a crafter shelf, commodities are used up automatically from the cache to produce the finished product. If there is inadequate resources available in the cache, then the pattern is unable to be produced. Plants are excluded from the cache and can not be stored within. Syntax: ------------ SHOP CACHE SHOP INCACHE [ALL|<QTY>] <commodity> SHOP OUTCACHE [<QTY>] <commodity>
