Module Movement

Functional -- Limit the MOVEMENT of simulaneous moving ground vehicles.


Limit the simultaneous movement of Groups within a running Mission. This module is defined to improve the performance in missions, and to bring additional realism for GROUND vehicles. Performance: If in a DCSRTE there are a lot of moving GROUND units, then in a multi player mission, this WILL create lag if the main DCS execution core of your CPU is fully utilized. So, this class will limit the amount of simultaneous moving GROUND units on defined intervals (currently every minute).
