This makes it so that the wreckage from destroyed ships stays in space longer than usual.

The author suggests that you back-up the file that you over-write in this mod.


Wreckage Mod

This mod makes ship wreckage (when they are destroyed) remain for a longer period of time.


I. Before Installing

a) BACK UP YOUR ART_CFG FILE BEFORE INSTALLING (in the main Armada Directory),
you might not like the mod, and want to restore original settings.


II. Installing

a) If you have already altered this file for some reason, look at these lines,
and match them in your file:

// Storm3D chunk manager parameters.
int ST3D_CHUNK_MANAGER_MAX_CHUNKS = 1500;
float ST3D_CHUNK_SIZE_FACTOR = 0.5;
float ST3D_CHUNK_LIFETIME_AVG = 300.0;
float ST3D_CHUNK_LIFETIME_DEVIATION = 2.0;
float ST3D_CHUNK_MAX_ANGULAR_VELOCITY = .02;
float ST3D_CHUNK_MAX_VELOCITY = 1.0;

!!DO THIS INSTEAD OF OVERWRITING THE FILE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY EDITED IT!!

b) OTHERWISE, Simply extract the zip contents into the main Armada II folder, overwriting if asked.


III. The Mod:

This mod makes the wreckage of a destroyed ship remain longer. It also affects the stations, so at times
it may get cluttered.

I made this mod because in the shows, whenever a ship is destroyed (or usually), there are still remains
of it left behind, like in the Wolf 359 graveyard; all the ships were still somewhat intact.

The only "problem" with this would be that destroyed stations do tend to clutter things, and I couldn't
make the mod affect only the ships.

I did this to my own computer about three months ago on a suggestion by my brother (even though he's a computer whiz, he's not a huge Armada II fan...ah, well, no one's perfect). It really works!


I think Capt_Reynolds' method is a little better though (less lag time in the game)

:borg: Resistance is futile :borg:

Capt_Reynolds hows his less lagey? also i found that the line that says

float ST3D_CHUNK_MAX_VELOCITY = 1.0;

is better if its

float ST3D_CHUNK_MAX_VELOCITY = 20.0;

better i think
