modifying model constants

Hi, I'm not entirely sure this is the right board for this question, but anyway:

I am running global simulations, which I have succeeded in setting up, but I'm interested in varying the parameters that WRF uses for Earth. For example, I want to change the rotational period, the radius, the length of the year, axial tilt, etc., to simulate the effects of these variations on climate and weather. I found a file where most (or all) of these parameters are located, module_model_constants.F, and I tried modifying one of them (P2SI) but found that it did not change the simulation (I even un-commented it!)

Does WRF need to be recompiled any time a change is made to its constants, and how would I go about doing that, knowing that I only need to modify one file? Is there a simple way for this to be done?
