The maximum numbers of certain types of entities that can exist in the FS2_Open engine. Please note that 'Inferno' refers to INF builds, developed to boost limits at the cost of multiplayer compatibility (although this problem has been recently fixed). Those builds are named after the Inferno mod, but are extensively used by many other projects, like TBP.
