I want to show you how to create a simple server side mod what make game more realistic and fun. This mod make vehicles stay on map after destruction. Thats mean if you have map with tanks all dead tanks will not disappear like usual, dead metal on map also can be like shelter for snipers.
It is very simple to do and you can do that for all vehicles. But for example i will took m1a2 abrams.
You need to open M1A2_Wreck.dbx in \dist\linux\levels\mp_common\level-00 FbRB\Objects\Vehicles\Land\M1A2. Search ( ctr + F ) there MaxHealth and TimeToLive. Change that to "MaxHealth">16000.0< and "TimeToLive">2000.0<. Thats all. Save and arhive. You can do that also for hellicopters ( mi24 are big trash ).
