What time zone are we in right now?

Recommended Posts

There was a link to a list, but I can't find it right now for some reason. It's basically 12 midnight local time on the 18th wherever you are.

And I'm sure the people of the DPRK will be pleased it is now available to them through their unfettered internet access 🙄

I'm confused. It says 0400 UTC download for USA East and 0700 UTC download for USA West, but I'm on the west coast and the MS Store says a 9:00pm download time (0400 UTC)... Hmm?

It's confusing.  I've read Steam will unlock at 12:01 AM EST, or 12.5 hours from right now.  But then I've also read other predictions too so I really have no idea at this point.

If you bought from Microsoft, it unlocks at Midnight your time.  

If you bought from Steam, go here:   https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/

On the left, put in 04:00 AM (for Steam users), then choose "GMT" as the location (scroll down toward the bottom of the list).

On the right, enter the nearest major city etc. in your time zone, or scroll down to the bottom and pick your time zone.

I bought from Steam and converting the 04:00 UTC/GMT time, my results show an availability of 12:00 AM East Coast Time, concurs with what the Microsoft info states for Steam users (coincidentally Steam is aligned with midnight EST anyway).

Oh *******, these time zone discussions aren't helping my blood pressure at all. 😬

One piece of advice: Set up an alternative time zone in the clock of your smartphone. Set it to show Reykjavik time. Iceland always uses UTC time all year round, without any confusing summer/winter time changes. That's your official simulator time from now on, and every event is planned with that time.

My days the lack of comprehension amongst some members! There is a CLEAR LIST at https://www.flightsimulator.com/microsoft-flight-simulator-release-times/ that applies to the Microsoft Store. For Steam customers I believe it's midnight US EST.

The problem is, they're using city and time zone names, instead of ICAO codes.  🙂

There are even smarter smartphones that will allow to set UTC directly. 🍎😬
