How cool...remove the date and time from a saved flight

Recommended Posts

I found out that there's a section in the .FLT for a saved flight called DateTimeSeason.  If you remove the section then it just uses the current configuration of your machine (current date, current time, current season).  I may be the last one to know but I thought it was cool.

 

I wonder what other little tweaks there are that make it cooler.

Heh...here's something else.  Did you know that the clouds in FSX actually float by?  I'm sitting on the ground and realized that the cirrus clouds that I have been looking at have been moving...west to east.  Dumb fact number 2 for today.

That needs to be promoted to an official FSX tip.

Hey, that's a great tip.

 

I have some saved situations that I use for practicing landing and take off's in various aircraft, and up to this day I had to reset the date every time I loaded one of them.

I'm sure there's an option in FS to "use system time" instead of Flight time, which makes it ignore the time stuff in the flight files in any case.

There is.  FSX uses it *unless* the date time season is saved in the .FLT.  FSX doesn't offer an option to not save the date time season.

If that were the case then the "Use system time" option would surely be completely useless because all saved flights would have that section and therefore override the option! This just does not appear the case here. I'm always flying with the current system date and time, and have established "cold start" flights at my assigned gates at many airports.

You're right!...about that checkbox...it should use system time. I've always got it checked...always had it checked...but it has *never* worked for me unless I load one of the blasted default ones. **Shrugs.** I always just chalked it up to another bug. Maybe I wasn't holding my mouth right when I turned it on.

Here's one for you....If you fly a-lot at night you may notice them. Shooting stars. I've been using FSX ever since it came out, but not until the other night while flying over northern Scandinavia did I notice two massive shooting stars! 

 

Its a really cool feature  ^_^
