This venture had been going on for about 4 days now and I think that my hair is starting to become gray. I have been requested by a friend to remove ammo casings and ammo types from the game. I didn't ask why but I thought that it would be an interesting experience in learning to mod + I did not see any uses for ammo casings myself. I have copied as override every ammo type and ammo casing into my plugin, disabled them, marked as inaccessible and deleted. When I went in game, they still appeared. I went back into xedit, removed ALL references that referenced the ammo casings/ammo types (as in, copied as override and removed data pertaining to ammo casings/types or outright disabled them.) I went back in game and it seemed to work after 3 days of waiting. Still, some enemies dropped ammo cases. I went back into xedit, found even more records I missed, went back in game, waited for 4 days this time and it seemed to work. That was, until I started to use merchants. Merchants such as the scavengers and Flak and Shrapnel (I am using TTW) still sold ammo casings AND ammo types! I didn't get why, since Moira NEVER sold either of those. I waited for 5 days and the scavenger had updated his inventory but STILL had ammo casings for sale and Flak DID NOT EVEN UPDATE HIS MERCHANT INVENTORY. I tried "resetinventory" on him and his container and still nothing. I tried trading with him, downloading a mod that changes when merchants restock, nothing, he still sold 10mm casings and .357 magnum hollow point rounds. I went back into xedit to make sure that I DID NOT miss ANY references and I didn't. I went into the GECK and tried making ALL of the ammo types unplayable, remove them from leveled lists and same for ammo casings (I couldn't delete them for some reason. No really, the delete button did nothing on them. Also I did make my plugin active). They STILL sold both ammo casings and ammo types. I went into xedit to see if there were any changes in my plugin and I was shocked to see that NOTHING changed. My edits to ammo types in the GECK did nothing it seems when I inspected them through xedit. Perhaps this is because of the "deleted" record flag? In any case, I did not achieve anything. What am I doing wrong? What eldritch being still makes ammo casings and types appear in-game? Why don't merchant inventories restock?
I need serious help, please. Thank you.
