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

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


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


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
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
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
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 have been untested with this mod.
