Can't get back to the first trader

I got into Garbage following the "storyline" missions from the first trader guy at the freelancer base, but once I got back, I can't seem to be able to get into his room any more! When I approach the steel door, it doesn't even show "locked" or anything on the screen and I can't interact with it. Hitting "F" does nothing. I would have to restart the game if I was to try to come around this issue.

Would there be a console command to open that door, or have I done something to keep it locked out?

i have the same problem! i see the guy through a little gap at the side of the door, but i cant open it .. i would say, its a bug! and i guess, that we have to re-play the whole game right from the beginning .. . i was so bored and frustrated that i entered the next level. after completing 2 missions there i got an "get back to the dealer" .. so i guessed: hey! maybe now its working again .. and walked back the totally boring road .. and. .the door still doestn open up ..

damn it ..

"Taken from another post"

Hey guys, I've seen lots of threads containing that the trader's door is strangly shut when you visit sometimes, but gladly I'm here to tell you it CAN be reopened or prevented from ever getting shut. To open the door you run (sprint) into the door over and over till it opens just a crack. You then procede to jump on the boxes next to the door on the right and run into that crack and then straif left. If you don't open on the first try, jump ontop of the boxes and repeat until its open. To prevent it from opening jump on the boxes I spoke of earlier and keep jumping until at least one falls off the pile, then push it into the door to act as a door stop, and volia! no more shut door! Now I also saw alot of questions on how stashes work, and I also can anwser that question. First off when you loot some corpses you learn of stash locations and THIS IS HOW THEY GET REFRESHED. It's very rare and very far between that you will find a stash with items if you don't know about it on the map. When you have that 3 downward purple arrows inside a circle symbol (which from here on I will refer to as the stash symbol) this means a stash location is ready to be looted. You can also re-loot the same stash ONLY if you do the following (1- learn its location off a body, 2- loot the stash, 3- relearn the stashes location off another body). I do not know if learning about a stash location multiple times before claiming it will actually queue up multiple instances of the stash, The only one I have had a type of thing happen with is the one ontop of the military station under the train, I keep looting the stash above on the train bed for the thorn artifact (total of 3 now) and the symbol stays, the rest go away when I loot.

Thanks for the tip! I was searching the forum, but I couldn't find anything in the clutter. I restarted the game yesterday and the door got shut again. I was so frustrated!
