Custom Limits

This hack must be required by a mod to be enabled.

This allows mods to customise various limits in the game to suit their needs.

Requiring This Hack

To require this hack, add this line to your mod's Meta.ini:

RequiredHack=CustomLimits

Your mod must provide a configuration file when requiring this hack.

Version History

1.26

  • Added a new SkidMarkLimit property to the Cars section to customise the maximum number of skid marks that can exist at once.
  • Added a new [Triggers] section with a VolumeLimit property to customise the maximum number of trigger volumes that can be loaded at once.

1.25

  • Added a [Missions] section with a new StageLimit.
  • Added a [Pedestrians] section with a new GroupLimit.
    • Also moved the [Miscellaneous] section's PathLimit here.
      • It is still supported in the [Miscellaneous] section for backwards compatibility.
  • Fixed an issue where the [Regions] section's Limit has been broken since its introduction in Version 1.15 on September 20th, 2016.
    • The actual mistake was due to the hack mistakenly changing the memory allocator used for regions.
    • This happened because these happen to use heap 7 (GMA_LEVEL_ZONE) and since the default region limit is 7, this number was also mistakenly being changed by this hack in every previous version where this feature exists.
    • This update also removes a hard limit of 127 from this limit, however it was impossible to actually set it anywhere near that number due to this mistake.

1.24

  • Added the [Heaps] section.
    • This section allows mods to control the size of specific heaps in the game.
  • Added the [Cars] section.
    • Also moved the [Miscellaneous] section's CarLimit to this new section.
      • It is still supported in [Miscellaneous] for backwards compatibility.
    • Also added the new HuskLimit to this section.

1.23.10

Added an [AnimEntities] section that lets you increase the limit on various types of animated entities.

1.23.4

Added a [Scripting] section with a new ArgumentLengthLimit limit.

1.22

  • Added CarLimit and ActionButtonLimit to the [Miscellaneous] section.
  • Added a [CollisionIndices] section that lets you increase the limit on various types of collision indices.
  • Added a [Sound] section that lets you increase PlayingClipPlayerLimit and PlayingStreamPlayerLimit.
  • Made this hack assert if the Limit in the [Regions] section was set to more than 127.

1.17.2

Added support the [Billboards] section that can define a QuadGroupLimit and a QuadLimit.

1.16.1

  • Added the DeletedEntityLimit property to the [Miscellaneous] section.
  • Added the PathLimit property to the [Miscellaneous] section.
  • Fixed an issue where changing the Intersection limit to higher than normal did not change the amount of animated arrows that got created.
    • This caused crashes since there's supposed to be an instance of the arrows created for every intersection.

1.16

Fixed a bug where CustomLimits.ini was not included when compiling mods.

1.15.3

Added the [TreeNodes] section that can define a DrawDistance, BoundsMinimumY and BoundsMaximumY.

1.15

Added the [Regions] section that can define a Limit, EntityLimit and RoadSegmentLimit.

Added support for changing region related limits with the new [Regions] section.

1.14

Added this hack.
