I've asked several times in the forums about altering the limits on multiplier effects and changing the use cost on the PING ability. Nobody ever could tell me how. Well, I've figured it out and want to share with you guys who might want to know as well.
In the Scripts directory, there is a Tuning.LUA file. When you use BatchLuaDC to transfer the contents into readable english, you see what a powerful file it is. You can change a ton of specs in this file.
For examples, I reduced the Ping cost to 400RU. I increased the minefield density allowed to 1 mine per 10m. I altered the multiplier caps for my modules. I reduced the Hyperspace MINIMUM time.
Anyway, this is something all modders should know about. Enjoy guys.
