    About trading with other people, can you drop items on the ground in Minecraft Earth (I can't find the game on the Ipad)?

    nope, unless you try to break the block and leave it on the floor until another player pick it up

    Or if public build plates were implemented players could set offers and when other players walked by the public build plate they could trade

    I think this suggestion is a focused application of what we could do if we have interaction with other players and the real world. I think all of those concepts are supported in other suggestions, and already in development or consideration.

    I think the concept of coming together in marketplaces will just happen, like it does in all of these games and VR environments. A mall is a perfectly reasonable place for people to choose to get together to trade ... the game doesn't need to tell us where to go.

    @StarbuckDude , i think this focuses more on having an actual interface for trading so you know you can’t be scammed, instead of having to invite somebody to a build plate and then both place and collect items where you can’t be sure the other person will be honorable to the deal

    I really like the idea but rural players would not have access to this feature. For example, my closest mall is 50 miles away and cell phones do not work inside the old brick and concrete building. This idea would be wonderful if I we could tag additional locations like the general store/diner that serves as my town's local hangout. All of the small towns in my area have similar locations that could be substituted if the feature was added.

    I was thinking more of a wandering trader as well. But I think that none craftible items should be there.
    It would be cool if it was point based I think like one point for dirt similar to emc in modded. So we need a 1000 points for a diamond 500 points for a hopper and 250 point for build plate chests

    you could have them pop up on the map like adventures, and then you get taken to a mall, where you can trade with the villagers, but they shouldn't be too common.

    Your idea sounds like something you could simply build on a realm with friends.

    Unless you are talking about a unique structure. Maybe rarer villages that are bigger than normal and have a large trade hall. It would have a few wanding traders gathered with their bits and pieces. Maybe Persian style on mats.

    The problem is, I've never seen a nice village, one that hasn't spawned without flaws. It is always half way up a mountain or split oddly. Anything bigger than a village is just going to look messy.

    A slightly different (and maybe more thematic) take on this would be to add a generated structure to villages in which villagers you can trade with would gather (like a trading hall). It would make it easier to find the trades you want. The villagers could even travel between the trading hall during the day and their house during the night. Maybe you get better trades if you trade at the hall.
