Slash on the ND

Recommended Posts

Hello,Sometimes when you make an IFR flight with the FS ATC, we can loose the sort of slash on the ND during the descent. How can we do to make it reappear ?Thanks.

I don't understand what you're asking. What is the slash?

It's the sort of comb which shows the plan of descent.

Remember when a previous version of FS, FS98 maybe, had these displays you can put up to show your flight path in 3D? You could chose the boxes, or the yellow brick road, etc. This was supposed to be the wave of the future..........lol.Well think of this as and extension of the "Y-axis" of the yellow brick road....Diamond below the half, you're below the road. Diamond above the half, you're above the road. Diamond lined up with the half, you're on the road. Of course you plan in the ND deals with your movement along the "X-axis" of this road.This display only comes up when descending. BRING BACK THE YELLOW BRICK ROADDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
