      Hmm I changed the spawn number values and there seems to be a bizarre limit. At first I did ludicrous numbers like 10 and 20 but didn’t really get an increase. Everything set to 5 I occassionally got 5 jeeps and such showing up. The most helicopters I had at once was 3. Any ideas on this?

    • #84338

      no idea. When I was experimenting with values I changed helicopters to spawn to 5 for level 1 and got 5 choppers chasing after me while I was in the air.

      Pretty sure the engine has a limit as to what it can spawn at one time. I can spawn 5 apc’s at once, or two and a few other objects.

      This is great, but I want to mod things the other way. More helicopters, more jeeps, more boats when out on the water.

      I’ve looked through the code and had issues trying to figure out what is what, would it be possible for you to either make a tutorial showing which variables are what beyond the two you posted (so we know which areas correspond to which) or post it in the thread?

      I have a mod you might want to try.

      “Can’t stop the police” in the mods section under “Gameplay” increases pretty much every type of cop (exception to the motorcycle).

      Thanks for making this – I was getting a bit tired of being swarmed on a regular basis, with barely-upgraded weapons.

      A suggestion for reference by people considering using the mod: place vanilla spawn numbers/rates next to your modded ones so we can see what the changes made were. I have no idea what actual vanilla numbers for spawns are.

      Extract an xml from your own heatspawn and compare.:P

      Seems like a cool concept for a mod, but I’d really prefer more vehicles on the road. This kinda takes away the action of JC2, seeing how there’s less chase sequences, vehicles to blow up, e.t.c.
