EMPORIKON mod (realistic trading) v1.26

by Athanasios


===============================================


what it does:

Modifies all traders in game to have much more equipment for sale (guns, armor, medical supplies, ammo etc). What makes this mod different from other mods is that it is an effort to give each trader a theme. Scientists for instance give good money for artifacts and monster parts, give low money for weapons, ammo and military armor and have a small stock of weapons (mainly self defence weapons like shotguns, pistols and smgs) and the biggest supply of medical supplies. Freedom has the biggest explosives selection and are the only ones that will sell you artifacts. what each trader sales is explained in more detail bellow


===================================================================

ALL TRADERS

there is a small dominance in quantity of russian weaponry over western with realism in mind (ie a trader may have 8 ak74 and 2 LR300)
Toz and berreta are in the game (however with higher price)
most items have random quantity
Sniper Rifles are really expensive as are the bullets for them.
Some really cool weapons like the Fn2000 are also really rare (and expensive)
weapon addons are almost always in stock but have high price
quests no longer affect the availabillity of equipment (the trader will sell ak74 and antirad by the first time you talk to him)
balanced a bit availability and price for all equipment
regular weapons and all ammo will not fetch so good prices anymore but you will still get some cash for your trouble
artifacts are the most value/weight efficient item you can sell
most of the items appear randomly in the trader's collection
some other things that i forgot but are almost certainly really cool

Instaling:


just drag & drop the gamedata folder you found in this zip into the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl folder.

there is a small possibility of needing to start a new game to use this mod.

===============================================================

NEW AND CHANGED IN VERSION 1.1

-all traders (other than the ecologist) will now pay a bit more for "special" ammo variants like ap.
-the same goes for explosives
-general traders will now buy the good weapons (like the fn2000, sniper rifles and so on) as well as the good armors.
-fixed some weapon prices to be more expensive
-fix a bug where sidorovich was not buying animal parts at all
-tweaked a bit the ecologist
-fixed some typos in the readme

==================================================================

NEW IN VERSION 1.26

-Tweaked the availabillity of some weapons (they are still there but they will show up like once every 60 visits)
-tweaked the price tag for some weapons (toz and a few others)
-sidorovich is inferior to barman (they used to sale more or less the same things)
- sidorovich however may or may not show some really good bargains; just keep checking him (don'y expect that always, it is like once every game month)
-the ecologists have now the worst selection of weapons and ammo (they make up for that with decent armors, medical supplies, favorable artifact prices and of course the gaus rifle)
-duty is the leading trader of sniper rifles now
-droped the ammounts of ammo (every trader used to have tons of it)
-droped the ammounts of many weapons
-heavy tweak on generic traders: they will now try to rip you off!!!
-special ammo is now much more expensive and rare as is regular to a smaller extent
-good weapons are now more valuable to traders (they will pay you more)
-fixed some obsolete things in the readme

-fixed a serious bug affecting the barman (hence version 1.26 and not 1.2)
