[MOD] TAF! v1.2 (12 Dec. 2015)

Post by TheRealBix » Thu, 22. May 14, 19:16

Hi there with Trade Agents Forever !

This little crappy mod allows you to hire trade agents, which monitor station prices, without Smalltalk and directly from space !
HUGE timesaver, and freakless station monitoring !


Please note :
The dialog is only available for fix traders (i.e. not engineers nor specialists)
If the dialog option is greyed out, that's because you already have a trade agent on this station.
Hire a trade agent will now cost you 80.000 credits.
If you don't have such money, you will not be able to confirm the deal (the option will be greyed out).

New in 1.2 :
The mod should now work for Rebirth 4.0, and should still work in 3.6, but ship sellers cannot be hired anymore.

Installation :
Just subscribe to the mod on Steam Workshop, that's all ;)


Downloads :

Changelog :
1.0 : Initial Release
1.1 :
- Hire a trade agent isn't free anymore
- Added a confirm submenu
- Thanks to YorrickVanden for the help !
1.11 :
- The new small ship trader can now keep an eye on stations' prices as the big ship trader do :)
1.2 :
- 4.0 compatibility fix



ToDo :

I love you and I want to have your babies :D

I don't think the vanilla trade update process implementation is bad but after a couple of restarts, it can get tedious.

"Tedious" is a short word :evil:
Actually it's the same for me, I was very very tired to re-hire everyone at each restart..

@wtfdidibuy : Mhhh I don't know.. Do you see it here ?

This looks good, not much feels more pointless (and unimmersive) than standing on a platform waiting for one of the otherwise-silent NPCs to trigger a smalltalk topic.

Now if only there was a way to remove trade subscriptions in code, and enforce a fee of some sort...

What I do is click "Browse the workshop" and then click "most recent" (which is on the right) that way all latest mods show up first :)

Great little mod thank you, have installed it and will give it a go when I get around to trying out trading...

Thank you Yorick, I'll correct it as soon as I can (It should normally works anyway)

Ok it's fixed.
But before publish any update i'll try to put a price to the task, to be a bit more 'realistic' (thanks comments on Workshop).

In fact the name is a sort of french wordplay :P

Bad news, I think my modding skills are at their maximum and I'm stuck at telling the player to give money to the npc, without creating any ware :cry:
