Accessing spell effects

This may be a trivial question but I've been scouring around the forums for a while without any luck. I'm using Datedit to mod and I want to change certain spell properties. I notice that the property which determines the spell effect of projectile spells in Datedit is the explosion property in the weapons tab. What would I need to do to access this property?

For example, I would like to access the explosion properties for the spell Ensnare. I would like to change the spell duration time and the amount by which a unit's speed is decreased. Is this possible to do, and if so how would I be able to change those properties?



None.

D.A.D

I don't think properties like those are actually editable using DatEdit. Try using a FireGraft .exe edit. If it's not listed there, it's possible that you'll need to mess with it via a plugin.

Maybe there's some FG edits for it that I don't recall at the moment, otherwise it's very doable via plug-in.

Some properties are accessible in Firegraft, but not others. Which plug-ins are you referring to specifically?

Edit: All good I found Corbo's topic after searching for a while.

jjf28 -- there's also an interesting caveat in the Snowden case: he fled, he didn't stay or return to face justice (after he could be reasonably certain that there would be a court case and not a secret assasination), so he kinda abandoned the moral high-ground

if we're significantly less safe because of the information he leaked (and I don't know enough to make that judgement) then it's the classic balancing act of safety/authoritarianism vs freedom/privacy

NudeRaider -- maybe you should start numbering them instead of giving them names eliminates that problem and makes things easier all around
