If somebody downloaded PSXAloft v.2.2 before 1543Z please download again and overwrite existing .exe. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi all,

regarding those minor mag var differences by 1° between flight sims: Does anybody know what year P3D's mag var table refers to? Is it still from the year when FSX or FS5 was developed? Or is the table updated from decade to decade or ...?

Does that mean that different P3D users use different mag var tables?

What's in the original P3D package?

Unfortunately, yes.  Just as with Navigraph FMC data, some update each cycle, some once in a while, and others never.... as far as the default years for each simulator, I will have to defer to others for that answer.... I update each cycle and each Mag Dec as soon as practicable.... for instance, both my P3D v3 and v4 are currently on 2017 MagVar, and I am running the latest cycle of AIRAC data (for everything other than PSX which is using 1703).

Hi Hardy,

here is from info from fsdeveloper.com,,

Magnetic declination changes with time, more or less depending on world area.
From available historical data, it appears coded values in stock simulator files date from 1988 for FS2004 and 2009 for FSX and P3D files.
Current values (2015) differ by around 3° and 1° for FS2004 and FSX/P3D respectively, although larger variations can be observed in some parts of the world

hope this helps, John

Hardy, where does the PSX magnetic declination comes from ? Is it from yearly updated NavData ?

Regards,

Hardy Heinlin

I think it's set for 2016. I will update it in 2018. It's in the main program, not in the nav database.
