why cant i sell my stuff?

Postby ket on 29 Apr 2010 15:36

Ok, so I installed COP to get some fresh ideas for TK and maybe steal a texture or two... Anyway, after getting bored after about 5 mins if this games lame gameplay I decided to go randomly kill some things. As a result I now have a crapload of weapons an stuff I want to cash in on, but how? The bartender won't let me sell them to him, nor will Nimble, and that guy Owl won't let me either.. Anyone?

From what I remember you can't sell to the bartender etc. Just the guy upstairs that can give you quests along with buying weps, ammo and all that from him. But you need to repair them first to sell.

Its the zone, traders would buy any and all guns, then fix them up from other guns. Not realistic at all. I'm not liking COP one bit :-Q

Why would traders dirty their hands in repairing when they have a mechanic not far away? :mozilla_smile:

Makes the game feel harder to me anyway in finding ways to earn money.

You adjust your gameplay, and only pick up salable arms. It doesn't take long to figure out which are keepers and which are not.

Thats just it, all the weapons I picked up were about 50% worn at most, still usable - in real life. A way to look at things is lets say somebody in america sells their handgun or trades it in, you don't get the shopkeeper saying "have you had it overhauled?" Its the weapons dealers JOB to do maintinence on firearms.

heheh... that's right! Sid and Grey spent their time fixing stuff.

In CoP you will also lose money if you repair a weapon that is too crapped out. If you can be bothered, you can travel to Pripyat with a gargantuan load from Z or J and have it repaired for free and then travel back to sell. Nope, no trader in Pripyat itself :P

If I wasn't so into making TK I'd go and sort COP out, but as TK (built with X-Ray 1.0, woot!) looks way better than COP and is on the verge of being better than all 3 games combined (prepping to inject a mix of CS and COP levels) then screw COP. I didn't like the CS gameplay one bit and never got more than a hour or so into it, and that gameplay mechanic didn't change in COP. I loved how in SoC with a minor mod you could pick random items up yourself and mod out your own guns without having to take them to somebody. CS and COP really lose a bunch of dimensions with the player not being able to do this.
