Hal's Traders Overhauled (H.T.O.)

A S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl mini-mod by Halcyon777



FEATURES

 
  Further Explanation:
I created Hal's Traders Overhauled because I felt that the games trading system was non-existent. The traders would always offer weapons and armor that you didn't need because you already had something better, I decided that since pretty much no other mods out there have a decent trading system that I would create one myself, after weeks of sitting and thinking over how to balance the games trading system, I added and tested hundreds of newly added items, how much they cost and sell for, and from whom specific items would be offered to make each trader in the game feel unique and worth the trip to visit more than once or twice. Traders now have a huge variety of items available, none of their inventories are in any way similar. Prices, availability, and amount of items all massively vary between each trader. The traders should now feel more realistic, they buy and sell what they want based on how convenient it is to them and by the area that they are located in. The zone is now a much more economically diverse place for Stalkers from all walks of life.

An illustration of what some of the traders inventory looks like in the mod can be seen in the image below. To zoom in, click HERE

 


Extras

The LITE and PURE editions of my mod found in the downloads section contain a separate folder apart from the base trader files folder which include the following mods below. These mods complement my mod very well but should only be used if you are going to play the game with your own merged compilation mod pack or simply in Vanilla (unmodded game)

( All are from Stalker.filefront.com )
        
   Axes Repair Mod by AxeMan808, MoDD, and Goffik
Stalker.filefront.com
This mod allows the traders in the game to have the ability to repair your weapons and armor, the price it costs to repair gear is the same throughout all 4 versions of my mod, so using this mod may decrease the realism and possibly the difficulty of the game, since instead of having to purchase a new weapon you can just repair your old one. Use this only if you don't care about possible decreased difficulty.

           STALKER Real Gun Names mod v.3 by Kyodan
Stalker.filefront.com
Changes all the original weapons in the game to be based off their real life counterparts. Simple and realistic mod, adds more immersion.

 Chernobyl_tv_v1.1 by Zero_3
Stalker.filefront.com .
Adds video from a documentary about the Chernobyl disaster to the two TV's that are in the game (one behind barkeep, and the other at the military base in Cordon). Instead of showing a couple of lousy in-game screenshots like it did before. I like it a lot!
      
Hades_Real_Gore_Mod_v1.0 by Hades
Stalker.filefront.com
Adds more blood and gore to the game, need I say more.


A few suggestions
- I strongly recommend that you play the game on Master difficulty if you use this mod.
- Pay close attention to how the traders in the game progress throughout the story, they may offer you more for certain items at different times in the game, or even less.
- Spend your money wisely, do not get excited and overspend on everything that catches your attention.

This mod is proven to support:




Any other mods are either incompatible or untested with this mod.

     As of April 26th, 2013 I am officially done being a modder. The 'Master Edition' is the last of my work for H.T.O., I had fun and sure hope that the community will enjoy using this mod with other mods, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a great game trilogy, though it has seen the end of its days for future releases, I am positive of it. Lastly, if you wish to include this mod in your public mod project please credit me for my very patient and tolerant work, I actually have never played this mod beyond simple testing, I did not make it for myself, I made it for the community because the Stalker community is the only community I care about, the players are some of the greatest gamers. I want others to enjoy these games while they can, in another 5-10 years, they will be completely outdated on most gaming rigs and will probably be unheard of within the majority of the gaming industry. Rest in Peace GSC Gameworld and Good hunting stalkers...

Where has my mod has ended up? What have you done with it? And what other mod projects have you seen it in? Please let me know, I'm curious to know where my work has gone and the things it's accomplished :)

By the way, I'm about to finally replay the game for my 4th or 5th full time now (I've lost track), and I'll FINALLY be playing with my own mod! Can't wait.

Could you make trader mod for Clear Sky? Its really stupid that you have to join specific faction to get more stuff from traders.

I have zero experience modding Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat, I'm mainly a Shadow of Chernobyl player. Sorry :(

I think Sidorovich should have big variety because his the most famous trader in the zone and could get you anything u want. Btw great mod , as in vanilla it was really pain in the *** to come back from scorcher and see only AK's and few M4 in Barkeeps inventory :)

Hm, better not, since Sid is a beginning trader and the military is blocking his trade. But he should have a great variety on useful things, like medkits, bandages, and rookie stuff like pistols and shotguns. Automatic weapons...yea, maybe for a too high price and not that much, maybe just AK's.

I just found a stash directly east of Cordon near a pile of big rocks and anomalies. It's a backpack with the ToZ-34 hunting shotgun. I guess it all worked out ether way :-)

I had to kill some new soldiers by the bridge, 3rd time I guess that would be. Looted 2 dead bandits and 3 dead loners near the bridge as well. IDK which one I got the coordinates from. I'm thankful either way.

I've passed Garbage, met Barkeep and currently supposed to visit the lab in the Dark Valley. About when do you say it should pop up in Barkeep's inventory?
