OK I tested this mod,
Now I understand what you mean with "damage". That could be an optional feature on mine (i personally dont need to bee slow if I need speed ;-)
I dit not found a real "adaptaptive" speed in this mod, only accelerating, with a slightly different algorythm.
I had to reduce the base speed to 20 in my base, but this is to slow outside the base, especially on damage.
The really "adaptaptive" is the goal in mine mod, adaptaptive by underground, by zooming out,, etc
