    What do you want to happen: so for the spawn shop I think maybe a place to sell iron and gold as well.

    Why should it happen: it will help the newer players of the civ community gain income and create towns and nations of their own.

    What will this bring to the server: with the possible creation of more towns and nations easier it can maybe increase a boost in players as the more players=more people invited to a great server with great economy which can lead to more towns and nations which lead to a more populated server

    Who is it for: the community and to maybe get more players into the server as alot of people ask about how to make money and it's mainly just diamonds and it's a hassle for new players

    No thanks, money has always been in high demand and should stay that way. It's a great challenge for both minor and major nations to balance between money or diamonds for gear, and since iron is completely useless, it'd ruin a big part of the economy on the server if you could just trade it in for money.
    The economy is better off being purely diamonds exchanged.

    Also big kudos to the team for making the server less vote dependent, meaning the point I just made has become even more important to the server.

    1 diamond = $250
    7 voting sites * $200 = $1400
    $5600 (1 nation + 1 town cost) - $1400 = $4200
    $4200/$250 = 16.8

    You need to vote once and then mine 17 diamonds to get a town and nation going as a new, solo player. The cost is not very high.

    Iron and gold can both be directly farmed. There is no way to directly farm diamonds.

    Adding iron and gold would make money massively easier to pool and accumulate for the established powers (as they would have iron and gold farms), which would further solidify their grasp on power by making it easier to wage war on smaller powers, and making it harder for smaller powers to wage war on them. Part of the idea behind the war costs being increased is to make it harder for established nations to attack newer nations without any good reason, and implementing this suggestion would work in the opposite of that interest.

    Iron and gold will likely not be added to the shop for this reason.
