SHIFT+Z

Recommended Posts

Quick question:

Has anyone figured out how to display something similar to the old SHIFT+Z text on MSFS?

Turn on Developer Mode.

Then you can select an on screen FPS display..

I think he's probably talking more about Wind Direction.

That seems a tad difficult to ascertain on a keystroke without having to ESC to the Weather Screen Menu.

Got enough to do on Short Final.

I agree. Just looking for the winds on the fly.

Yes, more interested on the wind reading just for seeing the behavior of the weather model. Plus it's nice to have a general idea of the wind conditions when landing on unprepared fields...

I miss all the little "power user" functions like this that Asobo has deprecated. 

Well why would a game designed for console need "power user" functions?

IN FSX and FSX SE, and I am sure in P3D, I read them as an optional user field on my RXP GTN and GNS gauges.

If you're looking for winds on final, could you use the G1000 function to display windspeed and direction?  At the bottom of the G1000 click "PFD", then "Wind", then there are 3 options

Option 1 = head/tail and crosswind
Option 2 =  Wind speed and directional arrow
Option 3 = Wind speed and directional degree

Yup, I can remember being furious at Textron the first time I got in a real Cessna. It was outrageous that they had not put a function in the cockpit to enable me to press shift+z to have all kinds of info appear in the top left of the windscreen in a nice red font; for that matter, there wasn't even a shift key, or a z key in that cockpit anyway, instead they actually expected me to look at the windsock or tune into ATIS or Volmet.

I'm more of a round dials guy...

Or a full FBW guy, but the FSLabs crew is holding their cards close to their chests, so for the foreseeable future no digital wind representation available without the little Shift+Z combo...
