Red Dead Redemption 2 Modder Rebuilds the Game’s Economy
A large portion of the community has held a funeral Red Dead Redemption II’s online component. However, modders seem to be keeping the single-player experience alive.
Despite the title’s emphasis on realisticity, which includes everything from the horse testicle shrinkage to the wild west world that accurately reflects real life, one modder seems to think that this is not enough.
It’s not realistic to expect a game to be real if the price you pay for a bath or a pack of chewing tobacco isn’t historically accurate.
The price is now red dead
Mod ‘Realistic Economics Rebalance’ is what you need to get your immersion up to 100. It is created by modder saravaksa2, who has previously made mods that enact other realistic changes to NPC loads and Hunting.
The latest work aims to have the same effect as the original game’s capitalism. Item prices, consumable effects and ammo limits are edited to better reflect the real world, but still remain balanced.
If you go to a gun shop to get ammo, and you end up paying more, and also getting less, for weapons you don’t need, and mods such as scopes, it will be a costly trip.
You might be able make some money by selling your horse. Common breeds are now worth 50% more, which is what you need if you want to upgrade to an uncommon breed that will cost more.
There are upsides to this, such as the possibility of healing your wounds with provisions and medications being slightly cheaper. Certain items such as cigarettes and moonshine are getting more powerful buffs to offset the nerfs associated with things like chewing tobacco or partially consumed medicine.
The value of animal parts has also changed significantly. Some animals are more valuable in carcass than in pelt or hide form. This forces you to think about changing how you hunt certain creatures, such as deer and reptiles.
You might feel exhausted after all the math and are looking for a hotel to have a drink or snooze in. However, hotel room rents and bath costs have gone up. The price of a meal and drink will vary depending on how expensive and swanky your establishment is.
You can keep your hairstyle and clothes pretty much the same.
