Time of Day and twilight in FG...

Question

I'm starting this thread here because the subject started at the X-Plane forum, and it really doesn't belong there...

 

Basically I've found a discrepancy in my install of FG nightly ( latest version = 2.16.4.0 20160911 ) between LT and UTC that apparently doesn't exist on other installs like the one used by Murmur, which correctly displays the UTC and LT for a given place and date/time...

 

Here's an example at ENBO for 03:11 UTC today:

 

For 03:11 UTC FG calculates LT as being 00:11 when it should rather be 05:11 because presently the airport in under CEST.

 

As a first step I am installing the latest stable version available from the FG site - 2016.2.1 and will see how that one goes...

Confirmed,

 

I installed the version available at the main site, which is still 2016.2.1 released May 17, 2016, and I lose METAR download because that version doesn't have the updated URL, but have proper UTC / LT relation at least for the 5 airports around Europe I tested.

 

Hope it get's fixed in the next release, but, indeed FG is, together with FSX/P3D and ELITE a sim that properly calculates twilight ( dawn and dusk ) depending on date-time.place.
