The Vending Machine is an unsplicable non-solid foreground block which was added on the sixth day of Player Appreciation Week 2015.


Putting a stack of items inside the machine and setting a price for it in World Locks will allow players to purchase the item. Diamond Locks are also accepted by Vending Machines as payment.

When a machine runs out of stock, it will show an "OUT OF ORDER" message, which renders it unusable by everybody except the owner of the world.


  • The Vending Machine has been a prominent scamming method. Several precautions have been added to ensure players won't get scammed, such as:
    • When a player changes the price of a Vending Machine, they will shout out the price of the item.
    • The default number of items one can buy is made to be zero.
    • Smaller images of the sold goods are added to Vending Machines to prevent misreading.
    • A trade confirmation screen has been added.
    • One needs to be directly in front of a Vending Machine to be able to purchase its items.
    • One cannot purchase anything from a Vending Machine placed in a locked area made public.
    • One cannot break a Vending Machine placed in a public locked area either.
    • The maximum limit of items which can be put inside a Vending Machine is set as 5,199.
    • Only the owner of the world can manipulate the price of the world's Vending Machines.
    • The Vending Machine needs to be emptied first before it can be smashed.
    • The Vending Machine requires 15 seconds to "warm up" when an item is placed inside.
  • The feature to add the "OUT OF ORDER" sign and the World Lock icon onto a Vending Machine was added on Player Appreciation Week 2017.
  • The feature to display the sold item or a warning sign on a Vending Machine was added on Player Appreciation Week 2018.
  • If a player does not have enough World Locks to afford the items in a Vending Machine, a message will be displayed, saying: "You can't afford that many!"
  • If a player tries to buy more items than available, a message will be displayed, saying: "There aren't enough available to fulfill your order!"
  • If a player tries to buy a negative amount of items from a Vending Machine, a message will be displayed, saying: "NEGATIVE, DOES NOT COMPUTE"
  • If a player sets the price as negative or more than 20,000 World Locks (200 Diamond Locks), a message will be displayed, saying: "Well, that's a silly price."
  • Attempting to break a Vending Machine with items inside it will display the message: "Empty the machine before smashing it!"
  • If a player tries to place a stack of locks inside a Vending Machine, a message will be displayed, saying: "No, no, no!"
  • If a player tries to place a fish in a Vending Machine, a message will be displayed, saying: "Fish would rot in a Vending Machine."
  • The Vending Machine can be upgraded to a DigiVend Machine for 4,000 Gems.
  • As of Player Appreciation Week 2020 Day 4, the Vending Machine now gives a confirmation dialog before upgrading to a DigiVend Machine.
