Simulated UTC vs Real time UTC
« on: Tue, 14 Jan 2020 16:11 »
It happened several times now that during a long haul trip the simulated UTC changes to real world UTC. This gives some odd OOOI results  8) known problem?

It's not a problem, it's a feature :-) If you activate the METAR download feature, your simulated time will autoswitch to real-world time. This is intentional and plausible because these current METARs come from the real world at the current real-world time. E.g. it makes no sense to simulate a winter night while your current METAR sets conditions for a summer day etc.

Once it has autoswitched, you can keep changing your simulated time as you like. But I wouldn't do this during a planned, continuous flight.

Thanks Hardy, I love these "features" ;-) But it sounds logical.
