This is a DIY (do-it-yourself) mini-mod.

The buy rates are governed by the

\DATA\2DA00.BIF\shoptypes.2da

file.

You will need to edit this file. Before you do, I suggest you familiarize yourself with the 2DA format article under the file formats category.

Open up shoptypes.2da in the editor of your choice (this is a small file, so I recommend Notepad). Take a look at these lines:

 0	Default 	1 	0.2
 1	Unavailable 	0 	0
 2	VeryAdverse 	1.0 	0.01
 3	Adverse 	1.0 	0.1
 4	Advantageous 	1.0 	0.5
 5	VeryAdvantageous	1.0 	1.0
 6	BuyOnlyDefault 	1.0 	0

You can adjust the shop buy rates (the BuyMult column) any way you like — let us decrease them a bit for now — so we can buy stuff cheaper. After it is done, the lines should look like this:

 0	Default 	0.75 0.2
 1	Unavailable 	0 	0
 2	VeryAdverse 	0.75 0.01
 3	Adverse 	0.75 0.1
 4	Advantageous 	0.75 0.5
 5	VeryAdvantageous	0.75 1.0
 6	BuyOnlyDefault 	0.75 0

Save the file with the same name and put it in the \DATA\OVERRIDE directory.

There is no need to start a new game; just load a saved game and enjoy your mini-mod.

See how it feels and experiment with new values as you like. Consider combining with the Shop sell rate mod.
