I was informed that there are some problem with the mod where they are unable to call for trade caravans due to the “faction leader unavailable”.
Finally, after some digging, the problem is finally resolved.

This is a Walkblem gears balancing update, as the previous update was a quick patch to solve immediate issues while balancing was put aside. After extensive testing and balancing, the Walkblem weapons and gears are now more balanced and with the correct pricing reflected. Weapons are still powerful, but not invincible. Resolved some bugs like gears cannot be moved to storage as well as the lack of food by the soldiers. Trade caravans are now well defended but no longer as invincible/OP – although there is also no longer any needs to do that after severely nerfing the amount of wealth brought by the caravans. The Walkblem gears and weapons are now available for sale, only at Walkblem Military Industrial Complex bases/colonies – but they are very expensive – and rightly so, as they are the most state of the art weaponry in the galaxy. This update also marks the return of the explosive rounds for the Walkblem Charge Rifle, the 1.2 version of the rifle just doesnt feel right – now the Walkblem rifle is powerful but not overpowered – it only does small damages with every round, but every round causes serious bleeding injuries to its victims – giving it a form of balance. Walkblem Power Armor now works more as a Powered Suit, giving dodging and carry buffs for the users. Walkblem smokepop now covers a bigger area, to provide cover for the entire squad, complimenting the Walkblem military’s warfare tactics. Hope this update makes the game more fun for you!

A quick patch to the 1.1, as serious vunerabilities was reported by players regarding how wild animals can easily cause huge friendly fire problems. As a result, trade caravans are now protected by GunBladers and Snipers. Walkblem Charge Sniper Rifle and Walkblem Charge Rifle are nerfed as well. Charge Rifles no longer have explosive rounds, Sniper Rifles explosion is reduced. All Walkblem weapons will also self-destruct on drop, to prevent OP weapons falling into players hands. Unintended error of the Walkblem Rifles being able to be crafted is also amended to be not craftable. I have also nerfed the amount of goods brought in by the caravans, as well as drastically reducing further the amount of money brought by the Galactic Tradings Corporation. The caravans will now no longer be worth raiding. If you have more products to sell/buy, then you should send your own caravans.

Replaced Trade Caravan escorts from Mercenaries to Walkblem Soldiers. This update is to prevent players from raiding Walkblem Corp’s caravans too easily. Goodwill of all 6 factions had also been reduced by half, to prevent an exploit discovered during testing. This change in goodwill however will not affect saved games that had already ran Trading Economy 1.0.
