Your best bet is probably to alter the storyteller mod to increase the rate (see post about Double Pop mod)

As someone mentioned below, this doesn't seem to work with alternate storytellers. I'm doing a Lovecraft colony, and I'm certainly not getting any extra trade ships! Is there a straightforward way to fix this?
When I enable it, It turns red and the name changes to numbers

@lgendof7th Actually you don't have to start new game. You can edit this in save file

Just go to your save file [!!!REMEMBER TO BACKUP!!!], if you don't know where it is then check in google. Open your save file and near the start of the file you'll find characteristic line of text, the one that starts with <li ..... and ends with </li>.
Just add [!!!REMEMBER TO BACKUP!!!] there this:

<li Class="ScenPart_CreateIncident">

You can choose your waiting time between traders in <intervalDays>3</intervalDays>

It shouldn't break anything, it worked for me pretty well. When I launched the game, it spawned a fruitton of traders at once but then it worked well.

This mod is great but it seems very fragile. It's not worked for me for a long time, the ships have stopped appearing with frequency. I know it's a compatability issue with other mods (I'm not using a custom storyteller), since there's stuff that might affect it, I guess.

I enjoy the concept a lot, it's just too bad that it doesn't seem to work anymore, no matter where I load it on the mod list.

Pro tip:
1: Click "New Colony"
2: Click "Scenario Editor"
3: Click big RED X next to "Edit Mode"
4: Click "Add part"
5: Scroll down and click "Create incident"
5: On right hand side, scroll down to the newly created incident and change that to "Orbital Trader Arrival"
6: On the "Interval (days)" box, input number of days until incident occurance (I recommend 3 personally)
7: Click the RED X next to "Repeat"
8: Click "Next"
9: ??????
10: Profit!
