Per-Contract Overrides

A Per-Contract override, named this way to avoid confusion with the vanilla BT ContractOverride (contract json), is an MC setting override file for individual contracts. This allows you to override specific MC settings for special procedural or flashpoint contracts.

The per-contrat overrides are stored in MissionControl/config/Contracts and MissionControl/config/Flashpoints. These folders are effectively the same and are both supported purely for an organisational reason. You could just have the Contracts folder if that better fits your needs.

If specific property is not defined, the usual settings will take effect.

Settings Breakdown

NOTE: Filename of the per-contract override is very important. It must match the ID of the ContactOverride (contract json) you wish to override. For the example below the filename would be My_Contract_ID_Example.json to override the contract with ID My_Contract_ID_Example.
