                I've been trying again and can't seem to find all the places that prevent you from having multiple of the same weapons.  I fine it a little annoying I can't carry at least two bats, tire-irons, etc.  Does anyone know how to do this, is there a mod, or is it known that it isn't possible to change?

     You cant pick up extra weapons.
     
     However, there are a few spots that you can go back for them.
     
     At the beachhouse where you get astrolight, you can pick up one of each weapon and leave to sell them.  Just DONT pick up the astrolight.  Once you pick that up the gate will lock behind you.
     
     You can do the same thing in the garage, just dont pick up the breifcase until you have sold everything.

  •                 I've been spending all my time on melee weapons I never tried guns.  So I tried the 38 and it can be made stackable.  You can still use it and each is sold one at a time.  You only have to add the lines:
     
     "is_stackable"         "1"
     "stack_limit"         "10"
     
     So the question is why are range weapons so easily made stackable, but melee weapons cannot.  It isn't due to inventory type as I changed a kinfe so it would showup as ranged, but that didn't help.  At first look there isn't something that show as easily different between the two types of weapons other than ammo.  I'm going to keep playing around off/on.  It has to be something about what causes the message you already have the weapon.

     If I think about it.
     When you pick up a gun, you actually pick up the ammo instead in the normal game.
     I assume, from your words, that is you add this:
     is_stackable then the gun itself also get's to be stackable.
     My question is: do you still get the ammo that goes with it?
     Secondly.
     You can stack jewely etc. Maybe that is an angle to explore?

     I think I tried stacking weapons once for my patch and ditched the idea because indeed you don't get the ammo anymore then...
