This Mod brings AI Trader, Tradercitys and Safezones to DayZ!
The standard Currency is the Ruble Item. You can Buy and Sell Items at the Tradercitys or just relax at the Safezones. The standard Tradercity-Locations are at Green-Mountain and Kumyrna. Serverowners can configure the Tradercitys, Safezones and Items. So you can build your own Tradercitys easily! If the Serverowner does'nt add the Currency Item to his Loottable, the Currencys will not spawn as Loot in the Game. Only by selling Items to the Traders.

Using non Character Traders:
To use Objects such as a Vending Machine or an Cashbox you need to add
<ObjectAttachment> NPC_DUMMY
to the
Entry! This is needed to make the User Actions for the Trading Menu work on non Character Objects that act as Traders.

Mod Loading Info:
If you are using multiple Mods they have to be seperated by an Semicolon ;
#Example: -mod=@Mod1;@Mod2;@Trader

I would also suggest to use Quotes ""
#Example: "-mod=@Mod1;@Mod2;@Trader"

Its important to have Mods loaded in the right Order to work properly!
The @Trader Mod should be the last Mod you load in most cases.
#Example: "-mod=@DayZ Plus;@BuildAnywhere;@Trader"

But there are some Exceptions. The following Mods have to be loaded after the @Trader Mod:
@KillFeed, @Community Online Tools
#Example: "-mod=@BuildAnywhere;@Trader;@KillFeed;@YourFavoriteAdminTool"

1. Navigate to your DayZServer Root Folder.
2. Open the mpmissions Folder.
3. Open the dayzOffline.chernarusplus Folder
4. Open the db Folder.
5. Open the types.xml with your favorite Texteditor.
6. Point the Cursor between the two </type> at the end of the file.
7. Hit the Enter Key.
8. Paste this code in there:
<type name="MoneyRuble1"> <nominal>150</nominal> <lifetime>7200</lifetime> <restock>0</restock> <min>100</min> <quantmin>1</quantmin> <quantmax>100</quantmax> <cost>100</cost> <flags count_in_cargo="0" count_in_hoarder="0" count_in_map="1" count_in_player="0" crafted="0" deloot="0"/> <category name="tools"/> <tag name="shelves"/> <usage name="Town"/> <usage name="Village"/> <usage name="Hunting"/> </type>
9. Repeat the last Step but change the first Line to:
<type name="MoneyRuble5">
10. Repeat the last Step with all Money Ruble Classnames you want. See "Added Classnames" Topic here on this Page.
11. Save the File.

Other Currencys
If you want to use other Currencys as the Rubles that come with the Trader Mod you can checkout this Links:
人民币模组 RMB(CNY) Money for Dayz
The above Links lead to Mods from other Devs! They are not Part of the Trader Mod! I just link them here! Use at your own Risk!

Setup Example for the Euro Currency:
You have to change the Currency Part of the TraderConfig.txt like this:
<CurrencyName> Euro <Currency> Euro, 1 <Currency> Euro5, 5 <Currency> Euro10, 10 <Currency> Euro20, 20 <Currency> Euro50, 50 <Currency> Euro100, 100
Checkout the individual Links for further Assistance or Guides.

Keep in Mind that you always need an Currency in the Config that is worth exactly 1!
Order matters! Lowest Worth first, highest Worth Last!

Hi Dr.Jones, I'd like to upload some modified config files that put Traders on a PvP oilrig. I was hoping it's okay to do this, I'm not repackaging your mod, just uploading modified config files

@DrMaxEvans - I've found the most difficult setting is the height offset. You most likely have the correct X,Y (given most maps show that), but your height values are probably incorrect. Try placing a fire barrel down first. Give it a height that you know is definitely above ground then load into the world & look for it. Because of the smoke & light they're easier to spot. Then just adjust the height down until it's on the ground. That's how I did it before I figured out a way to get the height offsets. I don't use tools, I edit the config files directly so I have an excuse to load into the game hehe

// <Object> BarrelHoles_Red
// <ObjectPosition> 4602.00, 339.04, 10314.00
// <ObjectOrientation> 0, 0, 0

Does anyone have a video how to create a spot for this mod? Like in depth editing settings. I was trying to put the trader up in Old Town on deer isle but it wasnt showing only on the 3 spots that I found when using a trader example for deer isle. I put the X & Z cordinates in but they dont show. Was looking for something that can explain how to edit the settings so you can have a trader in a special spot.

Hey our community Asylum PVP is asking permission to use this mod in our monetized server. We dont want to make anything from this mod monetized, but just to use it on our server. We only plan on doing custom vanilla clothing reskins/priority que. We are about to apply for approval from bohemia just waiting on permission from all mods requiring permission
@Señor Scotty, A tad late reply but use a map mod or something similar to point mark them, then add Traders Location to server config of that mod
