    Title is self-explanatory. Playing around with a little casual nodding for my own use and can’t figure out how to change the weight of engines in the engine files.

    In the main engine file, scroll down until you're at the node section, find the nodeWeight value and lower it.

    Thanks. Or raise it I suppose?
    I saw node weight, but didn’t how how to relate it to “okay this new engine weighs 800 pounds so I change this figure to X”.

    Yeah i assumed you wanted to make the engine lighter just change the value, spawn the weight pad in game and tweak it until it's the desired value

    the engine usually has 8 nodes, so you just convert the weight into civilised units (Kg) then divide it by 8.
