  • Version 1.2.1

    Whitelisted MP5 suppressor & Documents Case.


    MP5 suppressor -for Gunsmith 3- cannot be found as loot or on bots. (All other Gunsmith quests items should be lootable.)

    Shuffling keys in and out of your inventory is more of a hassle than a challenge, so Document Cases can now be purchased.

  • Version 1.2.0

    Disabled requirements for Stash lvl 2 for Hideout upgrades to Workshop, Heating & Library (as the Stash itself cannot be upgraded).

  • Version 1.1.0

    Compatible with 3.2.2

    Activated flea market (but extremely overpriced), so that items can easily be added to the wishlist

  • Version 1.0.0

    First build

  • Would it be very difficult to allow items to be added to trader assort availability by extracting with the item, ala the old Bronzeman mode mod by KcY? That build of SPT was my favorite solely due to that mod being my ideal level of difficulty. I like the scavenger playstyle and to keep bot gear sets toward the low end to indefinitely play in the early game style, but extracting with items unlocking them for purchase at around 2x default value is pure gold. I'd certainly be willing to buy someone a coffee for such a mod.

    • I'm afraid that would make it way too easy.
      After a few dozen runs you'd have most weapons unlocked already, and the difficulty would flatten out very quickly.

      Right now (especially due to the restricted Stash space) if you die, you will probably have to start scrounging gear together again, as you cannot hoard it anywhere or quickly re-purchase it. And I think that's a very essential part of this challenge.

    • That's fine. Bronzeman still required you to have the required trader rep and level to purchase what you've unlocked through extraction gear and I ran with bot loadouts scaled down to max tier 3 armor and 25 weapon score so you'd never come out with high end gear. This paired with me adding two 0's to each level XP requirement but cutting quest level requirements in half meant you could play 5 hours a day and it would take a couple weeks to hit level 10 the early, mid-game was essentially indefinite. Alas, I'll just hope someone resurrects the Bronzeman mode and I'll play around with this mod in the meantime.

  • ok but now add 5x5 stash
