Hi there, I was wondering if it was possible to make the Fire Storm defence last longer?

I am also interested in trying to see if it can stay on indefinitely - only manually being turned off at the players discretions to allow friendly vehicles to cross it.

From what I understand, the length of the defense is determined by the ChargeToDrainRatio which is modifier that determines the duration based on the RechargeTime on the superweapon power.

So basically, you can increase the duration either by making that decimal number in ChargeToDrainRatio bigger itself, which increases it by a proportion of the charge time (default is 3 minutes with a .333333 ratio for a 1 minute duration), or you can increase the charge time which will make both the charging and duration longer.

You can't make it last forever but I'm not sure if there's an upper bound on the active time. In missions with an indefinite firestorm defense, the power is turned on and off with triggers.

actually it can be bypassed (not to be synced)

under

[FirestormSpecial]
RechargeTime=

you define recharge (doh)
but
ChargeToDrainRatio=
defines how long it lasts when it is ON

so you can make it recharge faster and discharge longer

i used 5 and 7 as values
