Hal's Traders Overhauled
Made by - Halcyon777
Welcome to the page of my brand new mini-mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Please read the following information.
Tested with ArtistPavel's Complete_2009 mod and the Unmodded (Vanilla) Game
(Tested with version 1.0005, should work with earlier versions)
Important: If you are making your own mod and want to include this one with yours you must contact me first, then credit me on your page/readme.txt file
What this mod does:
1- All traders have better stock:
I grew tired of all the traders in the game having a low amount of supplies to sell, so I completely edited all of the trader .ltx files to carry better stock from a realistic perspective. Traders will also pay you more for stuff you sell them, some will even pay you more for certain items than others, but not by much, I'm not trying to make the game too easy, everything is balanced. The style that I chose for this was more of a scenario type of thing. For example: Sidorovich sells more tier 1 items and ammunition that you can find early in the game, he also sells the Groza (or "Tunder") assault rifle for cheap which you can visually see sitting on a shelf in the back of his shop. The Barkeep in Rostok sells a mix of everything, and is the best trader to buy advanced armor from, he sells vodka for a cheap price. The Scientist in Yantar sells rare artifacts, and because Yantar is a zombie/mutant infested area he sells shotguns at the cheapest price. Faction traders were left at default, modding them messes up a lot of things, including their quests, but they still sell weapons that the other traders don't, like the VSS (Vintar) and Others. But sell your stuff to barkeep, Sidorovich, etc. To put it into perspective, I made each trader in the game unique, some have better deals than others and they all have their own styles. This way it makes it so that going to other traders isn't completely useless like it was before. Also, unique weapons and armor are NOT for sale by any trader, just like any Stalker you're supposed to find unique items while exploring The Zone, that's why they're unique! That covers most of it, if you want specifics on some of what exactly traders sell, check the readme.txt file in the download, it contains all of that information :)
2- Flashlight range has been increased
Just a small edit that I made, I significantly changed the range of the flashlight so that it's not useless like it was before. You will now easily be able to see everything within 30-40 feet of you in dark areas.
*There are a few small mods that will be in the download made by other people, they are included separate from my mod and are completely optional*

A few gameplay tips:
1 - It is 100% recommended that you play the game on Master difficulty if you use this mod.
2 - Take any artefacts you find to The Scientist in Yantar, he can offer you up to 2000 more money for them than other traders, this is largely how you will make a big chunk of your money in the game.
3 - If you find yourself stuck in a bad position, like having little money left after buying an exoskeleton suit when your only 6 hours into the game, that's your own fault, shop smart! Or die...
4 - Medical items and food are more expensive now, so loot as much of those as you can when you're out exploring the hostile environment of The Zone.
Please leave feedback in the comments section if you think some items are too expensive/cheap
