Post May 2013 Patch Prop Job Fixes Thread

Recommended Posts

as is being discussed here at CA and also over at the DAT site, some "Odd Behavior" ™ is being experienced by well, a LOT of us Prop Heads
This is mostly a newly induced bouncy bouncy in the landing gear

it seems the Game Engine ™ has become overly sensitive, for whatever reason, to suspension spring and damping factors

So, I've opened this thread, and will pin it to the top, so we all can post the fixes. Let's not clutter it with discussion; just post what the tweeks are!! (in other words, open a thread below to discuss, or in the Mods/Skinning Forum. thank you!0

---------------------------------------------
I've taken a look at the TMF/Mod Mafia Corsairs, in particular to the -1 series for WW2.

this is what I've found, the figures below seem to slow down or almost eliminate the "leaning forward and flopping back"

In the TaliGear section, change the spring and damping to the figures below:

SpringFactor=1.0
DampingFactor=2.0

it's not perfect, but MUCH better

Remember: this "fix" is for the TMF Corsairs ONLY!!! The aircraft you should adjust are the

F4U-1 (birdcage)
F4U-1A
F4U-1D
F4U-1C
F4U-2 (NF)
F4U-4

you may also want to have a look at the Corsairs in the KAW mod, and adjust as needed
