Starfield Vendor Credits Not Resetting Fix

Many players may find their vendor credits to be not resetting even after using the wait mechanic and changing the time in Starfield. If you too have come across the same issue then here is a fix according to Reddit user MyOther_Acc in this thread:

  • To fix the vendor credits not resetting players will have to visit the planet Venus.
  • You will come across the planet in the Sol System.
  • After landing on the planet, players can use the wait mechanic in the game.
  • Players can then wait and change the in-game time accordingly.

The reason why this may fix the vendor credits not resetting is because of the time difference between Venus and the universal time in Starfield.
