Impact Data Sets are assigned to objects such as weapons to establish how they visually alter the environment. For example, a rifle visually alters the environment by placing a decal on that object at the point of impact. The material type of the damaged object determines which Impact Data object is used. The Impact Data object contains the full description of the decal, including any sound it might make.
