I don't know the mod, but where is the problem? Examine the mod's LUA(s), search for the wanted variable.
At best you look where it is initialized, the first time used. Very often in a load..() function or even in the base code (outside the functions)..

If it is a variable global to the mod, you can access immediately "modName.variableName" where the "modName" is the initializing "modName = {}" at the beginning.

If the mod has multiple instances (like eg. vehicles, triggers) it becomes difficult. If you're lucky, you know the right instance pointer, let's say "abc" and you can use "abc.variableName".
Else you must search a table with the instances to get a dedicated pointer. You may browse the table with
for _,abc in pairs(tableBase) do
-- examine abc, abc.variableName or debug print

Good luck.
