    Thanks to some help from Tank and Hoplite we now have the trade system working again.

    I've wanted this for some time as its a way to keep people somewhat busy whilst on the server.

    For the sake of ease....Im just going to stick with the term "credits".....if you want to call them US Dollars IC then thats fine by me. Whatever makes sense to you is alright.



    The system is a mix between HL2RPs classic Blackmarket, and StalkerRPs more complex trade system.

    • There are 3 "licenses" any player can buy. Generic, Clothing and Weapons.
    • Generic - Radios, flashlights, repairkits, scrap parts, ammo that cant be found in the ammobox (AT , RPGs , Mortar , M203 , Frags and smokes )
    • Clothing - All non-TC outfits and headgear ( Donator faction outfits cannot be bought )
    • Weapons - All ballistic weapons
    • Plasma weapons cannot be bought or sold with the exception of the TC 30watt, the Skynet 35watt, and the Jury Rigged 30watt
    • All items can be sold back to the menu for roughly half the value. Some will be slightly less than half, depends on the item.
    • Only non-ammobox ammo can be sold back to prevent abuse.
    • You can only sell items back to the menu that are relevant to your license. ( e.g , players with the clothing license cannot sell back weapons for cash )
    • You can only have one license at a time, and choosing another will wipe the original license with no refund.
    • Weapon condition will effect the sell-back price. Full 100% , Damaged 75% , Heavy Damage 50% , Broken 25% value
    Items like scrap metal, scrap weapon parts, salvaged endoskeleton parts etc now also have decent value, so finding them is a good way to collect some cash.

    Radio and backpacks and pilot helmets cant be bought right now.

    Ammo can be bought but only the rare ones that cant be taken from the blue box.

    I have added some basic stuff like scrap metal for trade reasons right now.

    This is created a quite sum of problems: Models in inventory not displaying what they were before server shutting down that recently happened, loss of license, and also some other problems as well. Are these gonna get fixed?

    There was a major bug with them that I believed let people access too many licenses at once (plus, I had access to one that I never paid for)

    when right clicking items in the inventory, the drop down options (selling and destroying items) don't have a confirmation pop-up or confirmation feature

    the sell button is really close to the view description button as well

    Is this trade system something people donate for, or is it something people apply for?
    I mean, does
    mean that players can buy those licenses via ingame money (like HL2), or do players buy them via donation money?

    Yeh anyone can buy them.

    I guess in order to have cash for the license, you would have to sell some shit to another trader first.

    Imma put down a couple ways that this might be abused or otherwise misused: 1: A dude and his buddy want a couple licenses to become gun dealer thinkin like dark rp and all so 1 dude makes a bunch of characters and then gives the credits to his other buddy for the license for both of them so bunch of characters made and deleted then they get there licenses. 2: A guy decides to use his bandit character to rp robbing people of their credits and also there scripts to sell them. Doing this repeatedly to then fund his licenses. 3: A trader guy with a license decides to sell something to people like rpgs for example, so they give him the credits and then asks for a larger sum then they are thus making a larger amount off of it through lack of knowledge from the buyer of the rpgs. Will put more down maybe but there are others that can be thought up other then these ones.

    You don't get any credits when you make a character and the script doesn't allow you to delete characters that have a loan out.

    I don't see the problem here.

    Again, I don't see the problem here. How else are people supposed to make a profit?

    QM's are being given the choice to go one of three licenses.

    If you're looking to make a roaming trader character and want the credits to buy a license right off the cuff then submit an auth thread and the admins will give it a look see.
    Otherwise it's about being resourceful and building your character up from nothing at first, which can be very satisfying and rewarding in itself imo.

    So Tanknut. We can rob people then for their credits?
    Another thing: Would it now be possible to loot bodies for credits from an s2rp event zone? It might become a thing maybe.

    There's already multiple people on server with licenses in certain businesses. All QM's do and some other characters as well.

    Loot is still constantly spawned around the map so your best bet is trying to find it and turn it in to a QM/trader for a certain price.
    Bargain, trade, do what makes the most sense for your character.
    We won't stop you from creating conflict and trying to rob someone for their gun or something, but keep in mind that that'll most likely end up poorly for your own character. And don't try to pull any of that darkrp "500 or you'll die" bs cause you'll get yoinked off the server right quick.

    Alright. Last night I did not know if it would be safe to buy another license after the one I had got wiped. So thanks for the info enraged.

    Im just gonna make it simple now and say..........no robbing.

    People can still be bandits and hold players up, take their weapons if they want, but no taking credits.

    That's a shame. Feel like it could provide some good rp, though it'd require a bit more effort with rules.

    I feel like SRPs banditry rules could be adapted to this, couldn't they? I don't recall how they were exactly, though, so I may be wrong.

    @Davebrown if one person robs another of items can we have it be where they can't just NLR them immediately afterwards unprovoked? The rule being if you take items off someone you can't just kill them right away to abuse NLR and avoid building up a negative reputation (unless part of a previously authed PK). This way it keeps banditry as still lucrative but unavoidably risky, eventually successful bandits will take on an IC infamous reputation and Techcom and traders alike may put large bounties on their head. Not only do I think this would play better with the intended server eco but it's more RP friendly too, and NLR bandits really don't add much to a server anyways. Sorry that was long winded but what do you think about the NLR rules surrounding players mugging items from one another?
