What you have to do is open the ART_CFG file in the Armada 2 main directory.

Scroll down to where it says: int ST3D_CHUNK_MANAGER_MAX_CHUNKS= # and replace the number there with 1500. Next, change the number on the line immediately beneath the previous line with 0.05. Now, there will be more chunks and they will be smaller (more like actual space debris).

We can also make them last longer on screen by modifying the next two lines. Change these numbers to 6.0 and 2.0(respectively, to lifetime_average and lifetime_deviation). We can have these debris fly about the screen at warp eight or at a much smaller pace by altering the last line in this paragraph set (i.e. from the first int ST3D to float ST3D_CHUNK_MAX_VELOCITY) to 80.0 (for slowish chunks) or 800 (for warp-speed chunks).
