# Override range number buttons

Many parameters have restricted ranges and if you input a value higher than the maximum, it'll snap back to the maximum value.

Examples include:

• speed in a fluid simulation is limited to 100.
• energy of a lamp is limited to 10.
• etc.

Is there any way to override these restrictions?

• Related: blender.stackexchange.com/q/2832/599. This works for lamp energy. – gandalf3 Jul 1 '14 at 6:47
• I think others (like fluid speed and domain size) are hardcoded in. There might be some technical reason why those are the max allowed values.. – gandalf3 Jul 1 '14 at 6:53
• Interesting, I wonder what the benefits to the code of those limits are. From a user's perspective, they seem to get in the way sometimes. – Garrett Jul 1 '14 at 6:54
• No kidding.. :P – gandalf3 Jul 1 '14 at 6:55
• Typically the hard-limits are set quite high, what setting was – ideasman42 Jul 1 '14 at 9:05

These let you enter lamp energy of 10000000.0 for eg.
