This might be a noob question, but I have searched and found no answers to my problem. I have a few vehicles that I wish to increase the top speed on, I have opened the config and changed the values for top speed, but it seems all the vehicles are limited to a lower speed than I select. For example I changed the config of the FFS_Cars so that they did 500 top speed instead of 120, just to see what happened, and the fastest they went was about 130.

This also happens on a few other vehicles, I have tried editing different parts of the config but it has no effect. Can anyone help me out?

well what i search for is that too, but my problem is not as yours, my speed changes, but on a stright way, constantly, due to the face that accelereation is very slow. and....it takes like few seconds to increase speed.... what i think I need is something like med speed. , where a vehicle have a standard speed of something value, where you usually drive as, and when pressing turbo u should be able to reach higher speed.

i too have a question about vehicle speed, can the speed be decreased in a code like the altitude code "this flyinheight 50". i have looked too and found nothing, although im not looking to speed the heli up, but slow it down between a waypoint to provide cover for troops boarding an extract heli.

On a waypoint you can set the speed as limited.

For increasing the top speed of a vehicle, you need to modify the config and change following line:

maxSpeed = 1470; //to a value you want. (this is taken from the Su-34)

If you want to limit the speed of a vehicle in a mission. Use:

Unit forceSpeed 150;

It seems mikey08 has asked a scripting/mission editing question in the addon editing section which I didn't realise at the time. For previous mis-posting he receives a short reply on my behalf and lack of attention.
