I'm trying to find a way to change the ownership of machines in creative mode "Trade-o-mat, especially" so that I may use them after I change the game-mode back to survival. My intent is to create a hardware store inside the game that I may purchase items from. "I don't play this game multiplayer" I,m sure there is a command for it in the console but I,m having trouble finding it.
Trade-O-Mats can be configured only by the player that placed them, or any players which are OP. OP players can also set the stock to be endless for something like an admin shop. There isn't a way to change the owner once it's placed (but it can be broken by the owner/an OP and replaced by anyone).
Here's a trick that might work.
Launch the game off-line with a name other than your IGN. Then place all those trade-o-mats under that name.
Then, when you quit the game and launch it on your own IGN again, they should appear as someone elses ToMs.
