This mod is pure gold..
Should have been out there long ago, this game missed it.

Now it is finally here!

The_woz; you probably made yourself an instant-IL2 modding legend!

An apparently small change but a big improvement to one of the 'original sins'. The props on the fixed aircraft now have real volume. This looks very good, well done and a big shout out to 'the woz'.

In order to enable the file I had to bump it up to near the top of the #SAS folder in my TFM-412 install by renaming it to !0000 Improved_props.

Wizard!

I think the Fix engines cowlings and propĀ“s by Jeronimo is loading first, you need to make this mod to load first.

Had to disable the mod, as far as when flying jet planes (mig-21, sabres) game ran at almost 1 or 2 FPS, could someone try them?

how about letting us know what game version, and so on, Jota?
doesn't make sense, though, the jets don't use any prop files...
my guess is something else is causing it...

Thanks for the kind words guys!:)

shardana: Try renaming the folder just like MadDog did

JotaC: That must be related to other mod, this one doesnt touch any jet, and while the new spinning props have a higher polycount than the stock ones, is still less than the stock static props.

My apologies, had to go out from home at half written reply.

I'm using 4.12 with TFM. First time happened when testing the mig21 bis in Crimea map, then I tried some other Jets in other maps in QMB; all other mig 21s, F8, sabre... Then disabled it and all went OK.

Then I had to go. I'm typing from the phone, if anyone can test it I'm sure will be something from my install.

Did a quick test for you mate and my jets are all fine in QMBPro, no loss of fps whatsoever. Couldn't get close to a messer though! You must have a custom setup with something else that is causing a bad interaction.
