Can't buy restricted items?

The vending machine info sheet in the menus says that some items are restricted based on your reputation with that company.


Right, but the OP say's he has " 100% positive reputation and revered status with Spacer's Choice" and yet " still can't buy restricted items such as mag-picks from Spacer's Choice vending machines". So it's not that they don't understand the reputation-restricted nature of items; it's that they have the rep and still can't buy the items.

Yeah, I made the OP and I was replying to the person who said there was nothing in game that said there was nothing in-game mentioning the functionality I am confused about. Sorry for the confusion, I should have included the quote I was replying to. Thanks for the support though :)

The restricted items are restricted to characters that can hack the vending machine to give them access (by having the second tier/40 hacking ability.)

How am I misinterpreting the vending machine codex entry that states, "Restricted items on a vendor can only be purchased when you have high enough reputation with the associated faction, or a Hack skill of 40 or higher"?

It's an either/or IIRC, for vending machines I believe it's always hacking, for vendors I think it's always rep.
