SquiddBot Economy
SquiddBot's economy system has been upgraded and now has many Splatoon related things. This page will show you how to use it. This page will also look better later but right now I'm lazy.

How to Use

SquiddBot has a simple data registration system. But if an error occurs, this may cause data loss. It may be recoverable. To register for the first time, run sq.balance. You can also use this to register other users, like how it was before. This is what the balance menu will look like:
You can gain currency like Power Eggs by running commands likesq.daily. You can also gain Salmons. You can gain salmons from your daily package or from using sq.salmonrun. Here's what that looks like:

Crate Smash

Crate Smash is a nice way to get some Power Eggs by typing in a phrase.
If you fail to enter the proper phrase, you will not be able to enter it again and will fail.
But if you can succeed, you can earn the rewards from the crates.
The cooldown for this command is 10 minutes, so you can keep trying if you either want to grind or are looking to succeed.

Leveling

SquiddBot also has a Leveling system. Leveling doesn't really do much right now. But it might be useful sometime in the future. You can gain EXP to level up by running economy commands. When you reach the maximum exp, you will Level Up. Every time you level up, your maximum EXP is increased by 30. You might end up noticing this. You can view your stats for Level with sq.profile. You can also mention someone at the end of the command to view their profile as well.
When you level up, you get an alert about leveling up. A level up message looks like this:

Octo Expansion Pack

The SquiddBot: Octo Expansion Pack is a pack that you can buy in the shop for 100,000 Power Eggs. It allows you to earn Octos by running sq.octo_expansion.You can gain a lot of octos. The cooldown is 1 day. This will have more uses in the future so stay tuned.
he told me the obvious facts as a tip 😳

Automatic Events

Recently, automatic events have been added to SquiddBot, meaning that certain things will be available at specific times of the year. Here is a list of a few automatic events that can happen during the year:

The Halloween Event

Every year, when October begins, the Halloween Event will begin across the bot, this will add new things such as responses for the 8ball, a new profile picture, and some new spooky currency to SquiddBot Economy. This spooky currency is called "Pumpkins" and you can retrieve them by running sq.daily and a few other economy commands. These commands are the only way of retrieving the Pumpkins and using this currency, you can buy a limited-time item once you reach 1,000 of them.

The Christmas Event

Every year, when December begins, the Christmas Event will begin! The Christmas event brings new things such as a new Profile Picture for the bot, new responses for 8ball, and a new currency to SquiddBot Economy. This currency is called "Ornaments" and you can earn ornaments through sq.daily and some other economy commands. If you earn a lot of these ornaments, you can buy a limited-time collectible in the shop.

New Data Storing System

In v2.5, we introduced a new data storing system. This is still a work in progress and may break or result in some data loss. This section will show you which commands they are and how this system works, along with answering some questions you may have.

How it works

The way we currently store our data isn't that bad, but it's messy and takes up space (and also takes a long time to find the files we are looking for) and because of this, we've decided to change it up a bit. Here's a comparison of how it looked before VS how it looks now (new storing system)
before
after
This is much cleaner, as data is stored inside a folder with your id and the files inside of it don't start with your id, making it easier to navigate. Along with this, some data will also be stored inside of a single file.

Affected Commands

As said before, not all commands that store (or read) data will use this storing method, this is to test how certain commands are affected and if this system is good enough to stay. The specific commands that this affect are:
  • Mostly all of the economy commands
  • Turf data
  • Settings
  • Team data

Q&A

Will these changes affect my data?
Maybe, it depends on if the data stores properly, or if the bot glitches and messes this up. We will move existing user data to the proper areas to prevent issues. This shouldn't look any different on your end, unless some of your values got changed.
Can I switch between the old and new storing systems?
Not yet, but I'm still thinking about it.
Will data for commands not on the list go to my new data?
Not quite yet, unfortunately. This may cause problems such as stuff you earn from economy commands not working on commands with the new update. Luckily you can use those commands Slash Command versions to get the old versions of them. This will be fixed later on with more commands using the new system until it seems functional enough to keep.

Safe Mode

Safe Mode is a toggleable setting that allows you or others users to be unrobbable by other users. Safe Mode prevents you from robbing and being robbed or giving people stuff when turned on. Safe Mode has a 24 hour cooldown before you can toggle it on or off again.
