Help on modifying mount speeds

I am using 3.3.5a and have went into the spell.dbc file and found the mount I want to modify, black skeletal horse

  • using the spell DBC guide, I found that column 47 contained this: rangeIndex float speed; // 47 m_speed

  • So I changed that value from 1 to 6 on my black skeletal horse, saved the dbc and loaded up my offline private server, and found no speed changes?

  • what have I missed or done wrong?

Don’t modify DBC files. Find a way to do what you want with code only, it’s absolutely possible.

I posted the solution here, editing .dbc files is far more easy than understanding trinity source code imo
