What this mod does:

All traders have better stock:

Detailed Overview:
The traders in the game have always lacked in terms of what they have to offer. They had low amounts of supplies to sell, and they usually weren't necessary because you probably already had something better at the time. Thus I edited all of the trader.ltx files to have better stock from a realistic perspective. Traders will also pay you more for stuff you sell them than others will IF it is something that they wouldn't usually have sold to them, for instance, Sidorovich (the first trader) will probably offer you more money for an SVD sniper rifle than the barkeep will, because it can be considered an extremely rare item in the part of the zone that he's in. Everything is balanced. The style that I chose for this was more of a scenario type of thing. 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 later in the game, he also sells vodka for a cheap price so go get piss drunk. The Scientist in Yantar sells rare artifacts that no other trader sells, and being that Yantar is a zombie/mutant infested area he specializes in shotguns. Faction traders were left at default, modding them made my game crash or made them not have anything for sale at all, so I left them at default. However don't forget they still offer things that the other trader's don't, like the VSS (Vintar) and their faction armor which you can get for doing their quests. 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 going to other traders isn't pointless 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, the mod should add a huge variety of choices and more immersion to the game, enjoy!
