Hey, Starfield fans! I'm here to clear up some confusion about how vendor resets work in this amazing game. You might think that vendors are random or buggy, but they're actually following a very cool logic that has to do with time dilation.
You see, in Starfield, each planet has its own time flow. Some planets are faster, some are slower, and some are just like Earth. This means that 24 hours on one planet might be different than 24 hours on another planet. And guess what? Vendors use their own planet's time to reset their Credits and inventory.
So, if you want to refresh a vendor's Credits, you need to wait for 24 hours of their time (Local Time), not yours (Universal Time). And if you want to see new items in their inventory, you need to wait for 48 hours of their time. This can be tricky, because if you travel to a different planet, you might mess up the timing. For example, if you go to a fast planet, you might have to wait longer for a slow planet's vendor to reset. And vice versa.
The best way to avoid this hassle is to stay on the same planet as the vendor you want to reset. That way, you can be sure that you're on the same clock as them. And don't worry, they won't run out of Credits or items. They always go back to their original amount when they reset.
I hope this helps you understand how vendor resets work in Starfield. It's a really cool feature that adds realism and immersion to the game. Just remember to keep track of the time zones and you'll be fine. Happy shopping!
