Question concerning Situation Files
« on: Thu, 11 Feb 2021 10:00 »
Hi Hardy, Hello Forum
I have a question: When I save a situation file, can i save the simulated UTC Daytime and Date as well? Because when i reload the situation, I always have to switch to the time and day i want to flay again. Position, services, route everything is saved, but the time always switches to acutal time and date on reload. is this on purpose or do I do something wrong here?

Thanks for helping me.
Kind Regards
Beat LSZH

(there may be more preferences that influence sim time at situ load)

Hi Beat,

when you save situation XY while the checkbox "Set zones by flight track and downloaded METARs" is selected, the checkbox will be autoselected whenever you reload situation XY. This checkbox is a situational variable, hence it's selection is stored in situ files.

When this checkbox is selected, real-world weather from the Internet will be downloaded into PSX circa every 30 minutes. When PSX uses real-world weather, PSX also requires real-world time. It wouldn't be plausible if PSX were to simulate a winter weather while the sim time is set to a summer day, for  example. To avoid this mismatch, PSX automatically sets real-world time whenever the above mentioned checkbox is selected. It doesn't matter whether it's selected manually or by situ file loading. -- However, once it is selected and the sim time is automatically reset, you can manually reset the sim time with the sliders on the Time page. But that won't make sense.

When you want to set the sim time manually, you should deselect the real-world weather function.

Situ files that have been stored while that checkbox was deselected, will always deselect that checkbox upon file loading, and thus will always start with the sim time stored in the situ file.


Regards,

Hi Jeroen, Hi Hardy
