    Those who hate traders got what they wanted. I will not upgrade to 17.2, that's pretty safe to say at this point.

    Understand me right, most of my gameplays relie very strong on the traders, so this change hits me really really hard.

    On the other hand i guess it was necessary to nerf the trader, i mean i had 502 000 Coins i couldnt spend arround level 30-40 (more or less vanilla) a few games ago. (I restart often)

    But its still

    Yeah, I agree with you, but you don't need to nerf it to the ground.

    Yea I play mostly nomad style and don't build bases so I rely on the trader a lot and this will definitely hurt.

    Maybe eggs should be buffed economywhise. If you can get 20 Coins per egg you would need 23 for a meatstew.
    Or 250 for a more or less decent tool or weapon

    Ya, its day 3 for me and I did 3/5 better barter and 3/5 salvage. (most of my points) settled near 2 traders. I struggled just to buy a set of clothes, a few mods, and 6 steel to repair my wrenches. (selling almost everything I find/ wrench)

    For the moment i spend the first few days by disassembling cars.

    The question is how far this will work. Vanilla there is no respawn for cars.
    At least it fills my belly and i guess i can pay 1-2 decent tools/weapons at end of week 1.

    The bad is that i have no idea when the random horde will hit me after day 7. So i cant focus enough on making money.
    I guess the real crying starts when i cant buy a Q5 or Q6 auger in the second week if a trader offers one.

    And i have luck, i had many cars near my gamestart, without i guess it is really hard if all you can sell are iron clubs. Thats not even enough for food

    I'm sorry but this is a survival game, not a shopping simulator. Looting and manufacturing should always be the defaults, with trading a distant third.

    I guess its both. In a world with traders they are part of the survival.
    The question is how people perceive the changes and as result how we can improve it

    I don't like the changes, but if they remove/rise the "sell limit 3" it could be a reasonable solution.
