I quite honestly don't know about every other trader on the server but this is becoming quite annoying...

The Issue

The frustrating part about this is that when a Stalker says something like "One Fort-12 please." and they you say "Sure." and you look into your trader menu and you see you can only buy three or four in a shipment for three thousand rubles (Not the actual price) its quite frustrating when all you want is one weapon and then you have to buy two more and find a way to use them... Sure, it's only singular for the higher up weapons like the Groza and the SIG 500 but there are quite a few rookies on the server and this makes our job A LOT harder.

The Solution

Just make all weapon purchases singular, if we need more than one of the weapon we'll buy it again just like we do with shipments of ammo... It's quite simple really...

Just think about it... It would make being a trader a whole lot easier.

Weapons are rarely(almost never) supplied by one. Shipments are there to promote IC.
Silver didn't add it because he simply decided to annoy the traders, no.

in what way does it promote rp?

"Hello can I have a pistol?"
"No beacuse I have to buy it in a shipment."
"Oh ok.. *walks away.*"

He said IC. Not RP.

IC'ly it makes more sense because you wouldn't just pull one gun out of your ass, you would have some shipment.

What would be nice is to have shipments have a minimal amount of items or cost total of the items so you could create a shipment with different items, instead of having the same items. That could also call for people placing orders and picking up weapons at a later time, rather than just randomly having them on hand.

What I said was that if we need more than one we can just buy more than one, its much simpler instead of having to think every time "Oh, do I think I'll be selling any more of this gun in the near future?"... And sure, you would most likely receive them in a shipment but that would only work if you had shipments for EVERY SINGLE gun, we traders still have to buy weapons, we don't have them lined up ready to spit out to everyone... Also, not all the weapons come in shipments, the more expensive ones come singular... I just don't see the point...

Second, Let me import 1 single weapon from the outside of the zone, Even though most of those weapons don't come from outside the zone, Because thats how the zone market works, Limited amount of weapons stalker

You guys are forgetting something VERY, VERY important. It's a game, and we need to make this enjoyable, not like in real life.  I really want shipments gone, and I don't give a damn crap about " Oh lul you can't get 1 gun into the zone. "

I can't really tell if you're serious or not, either way, it was dumb.

The thing is that as traders, we ICly already HAVE our supplies, you don't see us saying "Oh wait, I've put your order in for the gun, come back in a week." we fucking just give them the gun and tell them to enjoy...

The only person in the games that got shipments was Nimble. And it was a single item of choice.

Traders in the game Traded items. They don't do the whole Supply and Demand.
They sold what they got from other stalkers. That's why different traders had different items.

This is exactly what I mean, I don't suggest we do this, however, we aren't all Nimble...

It's a fucking retarded gameplay mechanic and all of you defending it because "it's realistic" fail to take into the fact that traders likely have inventories with them when they enter the zone and therefore don't need to order guns every 3 seconds. And remember what happened when everything came in shipments? The server was worse than it is now because no one could afford anything and traders never made jobs because they couldn't afford to reward people. You don't want to go back to that system, it's stupid and all of you have horrible short term memory if you have already forgotten how retarded that is.

Realism < Game play.

If we wanted to be "Realistic" anyone in a rookie Jacket would go into "Critical condition" if shot once.
If we wanted to be "Realistic" SRP would not exsist, as The Zone is not a real lace
If you want it to be 100% "Realistic" go LARP with REAL guns.
Not to mention SRP is FAR from realistic so the "lol it is real" argument really pisses me off.

So PLEASE for the love of GOD remove Pistol, Shotgun, and Viper shipments

"I'm a faggot, Tom."

Oh boy.
Strap yourselves in, it's time for the great 'obligatory' SRP resurrection of 2013/14/15/16

+support.

Noone wants to be a trader because of these fucking shipments.
I would have a trader already, seeing there is rarely one arround, but that fucking shipment crap keeps me off.
Nuff said.

Yea, I wouldn't think SRP would function too well if we relied on traders trading only what they received.

But shipments isn't good either. I don't see why it was implemented.

It's not implemented, Silver was just being lazy and never removed them from the base trader script that comes with Nexus.
