[FSX] Wind different between FS and FSC

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

First : 

 

1. FSX Pro + FSX Acc

2. FSUIPC v4.90 & Wide FS v7

3. FSC 9.2.1 v & FSDB v 9.2 

4. ? AS_FSC_V9200.exe + fsc92update_rev921

5. Win7 x64 utlimat

 

My problem is that the wind under FS is in MAG and under FSC seam to be in TRUE, so they have not the same direction (difference MAG/TRUE depending of the region).

And with some cross winds the route is not very nice (curve) when plane is under pilot from FSC (normal, they have not the same wind !).

 

I don't find anything to set both wind at the same, how can I do ?

 

I think, but not sure because I have not seen this problem immediatly, that the problem appeared when I changed from v8 to v9, or v9.0 to 9.2, I don't remember.

I tried with FSC v9.3, same.

 

Thank you,

Fred

Hi Fred,

 

First: The wind routine is so old, as old as the wind blows.

Now back to the serious business of life.

 

Your observations are correct. 
The spoken wind (from ATC) are MAG.
The transmitting wind in the METAR string are TRUE.

The FlightSim Commander displays the AMBIENT wind as TRUE.

 

Regards,

Volker

 

Edit: The next version will show the wind arrow in magnetic direction
