While Cyberpunk 2077 has endured a difficult lifespan since its 2020 release, with a barrage of bugs and glitches on various platforms originally putting off players, things are finally looking up for the Keanu Reeves friendship simulator.
Following the release of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, a lot of people have been tempted into giving the game another chance, leading to some massive player numbers that have only grown stronger since the announcement that the game will be getting a sequel.
Now, a group of new mods might help lure back those who’ve long struggled to manage their cyber finances, giving players a chance to offset their cat food bills by making other items in the game easier to acquire and possibly more affordable.
Are you paying too much for your cybernetics?
The first of the mods in question is called ‘Better Vendors’ and is the work of prolific modder yakuzadeso, whose previous work has made getting a good night’s sleep more rewarding and given V the ability to land like a superhero whenever they like.
This time, they’ve unleashed a barrage of changes on the game’s economy, with that first mod working to ensure that vendors always have massive, well-stocked inventories, in addition to giving them a never-ending supply of funds with which to buy whatever you happen to be selling.
While some of these features are already included in existing vendor mods like Scissors123454321’s ‘SVE - Simple Vendor Expansion’, E3roKK’s ‘Rich Vendors’ and MrCoby220’s ‘Street Vendors’, by combining them all into one mod, yakuzadeso’s work might be a good option if you’re looking to downsize your load order.
However, if instead you’re on the hunt for a mod that’ll let you set the prices these vendors will be charging for their goods to whatever level you’re comfortable paying, yakuzadeso also has you covered there.
If you’re coming towards the end of a playthrough and think your bank account’s becoming a bit too inflated another of their new mods, ‘Expensive Night City’, should combat this via inflation, while ‘Almost Everything Is Free’ does the opposite and ‘Buy Prices Cut In Half’ initiates a permanent sale that can act as middle ground between the two.
Regardless of where you lie in Night City’s economic strata, make sure to follow us for updates on the wacky world of Cyberpunk 2077 modding and info on the game’s upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion, which is set to debut in 2023.
