    I think there is an issue with the NC starting shop map.

    i vaguely recall noticing this in previous NC playtthroughs, but it has been quite a long time since i've restarted a game.

    On a side note: This is also the first time I've ever installed T+, but i seem recall this when not using T+

    I've made my 5 PC people and when I started the game I saved it right as soon as I entered into the starting shop/map equipment map.

    When I reload that saved game, the amount of starting money changes. Every time I reload, the amount changes.

    Created party and then saved as seen as I entered the starting shop map:

    You can see that I've reloaded repeatedly just to check the starting money:

    I think the largest I saw was 87 plats and the lowest was 51 plats

    Actually, the shop map can be utilized for unlimited money doing this.... Buy want you want, then save and reload. your money will be reset, so you can buy more. Then save and reload, so your money will be reset.

    Unlimited money.

    Believe it or not, it's a feature (with a bug), there is a script that fires when you enter the map that generates your random starting gold for the PC's in your party composition.

    In retrospect, perhaps we should have allowed random gold to be generated if a particular flag was set to 0, then set the flag to 1 once the random gold was set.

    Or just whatever runs that initializing script the first time then destroys itself.

    I liked having the ability to buy what I wanted from the starting shop for my team. It made things easier so we could get to the main part of the game where we weren't arguing over small bits of money.

    I think the original shop map was one of the first mods I ever made, aside from adding new items and making high level magical items craftable
