The Traders inventory changes from time to time, what triggers the update?

as you progress in the game and complete certain missions, you get certain info portions, these trigger the changes in the traders inventory.

I can't comment on editing the files to get different results. I would probably mess that up.

I can say that Sidorovich doesn't really ever offer anything other than low-level stuff. Weak pistols, shotgun, vodka, etc. The barkeep has some good stuff and there is a guy near Duty, who is alone in a building near duty HQ, but not in it, that offers ammo for the OC-14 and Val VS - the PAB ammo. There is a trader in the Army warehouse too, but if you join duty before going there, he'll most likely get killed in an attack by duty, so I never got to buy from him. Hope that helps.

Although I expressed myself poorly; however, your answers were helpful.

What I really meant was, what triggers the trader inventories to refresh?

Each trader operates with a certain set of items that may be offered, depending on what the settings are in the trader.ltx files, and the rest will never show up.

I'm wondering what event causes the traders to 'roll the dice' as to which possible items are actually being offered now. For example, if you buy up all the 5.56 ammo and came back after the 'event', then there might be some more 5.56 ammo available, or not depending on the 'dice rolls'. I'm wondering what triggers that refresh or restocking of the store.

What Robomook said - as you progress in the game and complete certain missions, you get certain info portions, these trigger the changes in the traders inventory.
If the game detects that an info portion activates a new trader section, it updates it. It also updates on a set time, or every load. If I'm looking for something, I just save and load infront of the trader till I get it.
