Making harder groud objects!

Recommended Posts

Hello, boys! I'm testing the new Armchair Aces update and testing some things. I have discovered a VERY EASY trick to make all your ground objects harder to destroy. You'll only need the DATA.ini of each object.

 

For example, if you want harder trucks: Go to your Liberty_Data.ini.

 

As main object component you'll have Component[001]=Truck. Well, go to the [Truck] section. Under the MaxExtentPosition line make another line with StructuralFactor=5.0 (you can play with this number to your taste). Save the file and that's all!!!

Go to the game, play an Armed Recon mission and see the difference!

[Engine]

You can make the same with any infantry, machine gun, AAA gun, etc. Some objects have two main components (for example, the Ft-17 tanks have Chassis and Turret), so you'll need to do the StructuralFactor thing for each component, for example:

I have moddified all my objects (minus the balloons), and it's a great improvement in the few missions I played!
