Doesn anyone know a script to tweak the radar settings so that we can give it to vehicles that don't ariginally have them, and how to tweak the range of it.
Adjusting these things can help the people who don't have the money to buy the armed helis and jets to travel more safely.

I don't think it's possible to change anything about radars other than disabling them completely using difficulty settings.

After researching some i think i might have found soemthing you need.
I'm not much of a programmer myself so I'll just give you this:
In the cfgVehicles i found that vehicles have a setting called RadarType
I didn't check it for all of them, but for the ones i did i found radartype 0 and 8 to have no radar, radartype 4 being air units with radar, and AA tanks had type 2 (they have radar too)
Is there a way to change the RadarType for some vehicles using the mission file, or do we have to try to edit the server's own cfg for it? Any help is welcome.

This is done in CfgVehicles. You would have to write an addon to accomplish this.

Would that addon bug the people who would not have it?

I don't know but I guess it would give people who do have it an unfair advantage.
