How to resurrect a missing Trader and their Caravan

#1neoglitch1980Posted 11/5/2008 2:33:19 AM
I was looking for an answer to this issue earlier and after some foot work came up with this resolution. I used the method found in Howfish's guide to resurrect Walter and researched the prid number for each character and their caravan... so laid out nicely so you don't have to look for yourself. Here's how to fix it!

!!!SAVE YOUR GAME BEFORE DOING ANY OF THIS!!!

1. Walk to a location where you usually meet the traders (this is done to make sure they're is resurrected in the right location)(ex: in front of megaton )

2. Enter the console by pressing the tilde key ~

3. Type: prid "character number" (press enter)
(ex: to select Crow type: prid 00063c05)

4. Type: moveto player (press enter)
(this spawns the NPC at your location)

5. And if the character is dead type: resurrect (press enter)

.... and just to be crystal... no quotation marks or brackets!

And here are their ID numbers!

i figured that someone was going to do a search somewhere down the line and it would be found easier that way... but yeah, thanks for the ingratitude... nothing like spending time to help people just to have them talk smack...

If you resurrect a trader, you can't invest in them at Canterburry Commons because Uncle Roe still thinks they are dead :(

Interesting. I think all my traders are alive but their routes are broken and they never move. Crow has been outside of Megaton for (in-game) months and the only other one I've seen is the Doc running around by Evergreen Mills.

well i wish i knew more about the canterberry commons thing... because thats why I needed to resurrect him in the first place.... maybe i"ll plunk away at it for a little longer later today... otherwise if anyone else comes up with a better solution feel free to add it...

(I really wish Bethesda just spent a little more time in QA to fix these silly issues....)

well you could try SetEssential when you start the game for the traders, to prevent them from dying in the first place. just the trader, not the guards.

oh well thankies for the code.

Why would it get a second season when it's about to end here? >_> -V exe1 on tower of druaga season 1.

The traders are actually important? I always just killed them and took their crap. I think I've killed 2 of'em so far.

Just because this is GFAQs doesn't mean that everyone else believes that ITT Tech somehow qualifies as a real education. What? You couldn't get into Devry? -dc3

theyre a good way to cash in your items... i frequently run merchants out of caps... but more importantly the one i needed had a schematic i wanted...

if you wish to resurrect your trader at the location they died and do not know where that was use this command to teleport to them:

player.moveto <prid>
(no <> marks)

I suggest moving to their brahmin, and calling the trader and guard to the location of the brahmin... no specif reason might i add...

in addition... I've seen that there should be an extra step at the end... and I dont know why, but people are saying to type "enable" after the resurrect command and then sleep for 24 hours for things to be fully reset...

I've also seen people talking about the "resurrect 1" command... something to do with resurrecting someone that was gibbed.... for more info follow this link
