Sell Damaged weapons

Many years ago when I first played COP there was a tweak or mod that you could do to get the traders to buy damaged weapons.
Does anybody know how to do this. I am playing with Redux mod which makes the game very difficult and I die many many times. Just looking for this one small edge to make money a little quicker so I can buy better armour.

each trader has his own config file in gamedata\configs\misc\trade

for example, Owl's is \configs\misc\trade\trade_zat_b30_stalker_trader.ltx

look for the buy_item_condition_factor

you can lower it or comment it out completely, like this:

-- buy_item_condition_factor = 0.65

NPC's have a buy_item_condition_factor in trade_generic.ltx

btw this belongs in the Mod Discussion section...

Sell Damaged weapons

Not sure how your Mod works but in the unmodded Game some weapons
are too damaged to sell but that does not mean they are worthless. You
can try to repair them to sell but some are so damaged the cost is not
worth the expenditure. As you improve your status and relationships
in the Game, the cost of items to buy and repairs to be made decrease.

This means the weapons you have now that cost too much to repair, you
stash somewhere until a later time when it is cheaper to repair them
and then you can sell at a profit. I know that does not help you now
early in the Game but they are not worthless for the rest of the Game.

The way to do it in vanilla is to stash the higher value guns that are not cost friendly repairable and then once the route is open ship them to Pripyat where repairs are free and then ship them back to sell.

Once your travelling to and from Pripyat later in the game it's worth maxing your travel weight there and back as you can easily pocket 20k + per trip.

By the time you get to Pripyat, you have long ago met the point where
guns are cheaper to repair. Additionally any profit would be lost by
doing it that way since you have to pay for the travel there AND back.
There are simply not enough people in Pripyat to sell to for this to work.

You make several trips between Pripyat and Zaton/Jupiter during the game, Weapons such as SVD's, Groza's etc that have been dropped and then caught in explosions (grenades?) often have zero condition making them write off's regardless of the cost reductions that repairs get later in the game, Saving them and maxing your carry weight too and from Pripyat allows you too turn the trips into a profit making exercise. As I said in the first post "Once your travelling to and from Pripyat later in the game it's worth maxing your travel weight there and back as you can easily pocket 20k + per trip."

I'm talking about the normal Game prior to Freeplay. As Uncle Yar
doesn't do free repairs in Pripyat until Freeplay commences, you are
talking about after the Game is completed and Freeplay is an option.
By this time the Player has bought everything they need or wants.

I'm talking about the normal game before freeplay as well, ie: as soon as you travel between Pripyat and the other maps as part of the storyline. The military do free repairs.

There's a very limited window to go back and forth until you are locked
out from leaving Pripyat when you do certain things prior to Freeplay.
As I said before, by the time this happens in the Game, the Player has
long ago received the best discounts on repairing weapons locally with
the Repair Techs without having to travel. Why wait until the near end
of the Game to do something that most people want the money for way
before? Money comes easy near the end. Most people here want to know
about making money at the start of the Game when the Trader's buying
prices are too low compared to the higher early cost of repairing things.

I simply said that certain weapons have zero condition and are not repairable even with maximum discounts, Those can be taken to Pripyat and repaired for free, then brought back and sold for pure profit. What is there not to understand. You commented on that and got it wrong but rather than accept you got it wrong you change the parameters of what it was about. I made a pretty simple statement which you disputed, I corrected you and your response was too imply that I'm talking about freeplay, I wasn't so I explained that, And now rather than just accept that and move on you start claiming it's about needing to make money at the start of the game which is not an option if you want to do it with maximum discounts as you said. Also for your information you do have to travel to get maximum discounts, For the friends of stalkers and One of us achievements and there discounts in Zaton your required to travel between Zaton and Jupiter completing certain tasks.
