Ok, so I was playing Fallout Tactics, and I kept saying to myself, "Man, I wish I could get more ammo/weapons, bet I need more money."
or, "These Raiders barely have any ammo on them."
So I thought, this would be great for STALKER.
Basically, I'd like to make the;
-Traders have some pretty expensive items, like in Fallout Tactics.
-Traders sell less, and have "themes" ie: Freedom sells mostly weapons, Scientists sell their science suits, anti-rads ect.
-Not find as much ammo off dead Stalkers.
-Weapons off dead Stalkers should be more degraded for certain ranks. ie: Experienced Stalkers have been around the Zone for a bit, so their guns aren't in top shape. However Veteran Stalkers Have been around even longer, and they know how to take care of their things, so they're better shape. Military Privates just got enlisted in the Zone right? Their weapons should be fairly new. And Bandits? Feh! Mere junk.
-Give more items to NPCs. I'd like to find more useful ways for NPC trading.
I'm still thinking of a way to find good shape weapons, yet still difficult to get a hold of.
My goal is to put more challenge into STALKER, because it felt as though things were pretty much given to you.
There's a guide on basic modding, but I didn't see anything on how to edit the Traders or NPCs...
This is my first time modding, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I'll do some poking around, though.
...or you might just download the Redux Mod which has pretty much all the stuff you mentioned
Well, that works too. Funny how I've never known of this mod's existence...
