Does anybody have a complete list of the DGEN settings in the conf.ini and their possible values? I'm pretty sure different ones are scattered throughout the forum but is there a single source of a comprehensive listing? I only found some of them in the readmes but not all.
thanks

From Starshoy:

In PF only - ship rate of fire is reduced.

RandomFlights=(0-5) FB only - a maximal number of random flights.

MaxFLAK=(0-100)

FB only - maximal number of AAA en route, does not affect target area.
