Time Zone Patch

Recommended Posts

Tom G,I saw your post below regarding the Time Zone Patch. I've been doing a lot of work with AI Traffic (great program BTW) adding/modifying flights at specific airports and I'm afraid that applying this patch might cause some problems. What do you think?Thanks!Matt Zagoren

I agree, to a point. If you have developed an AI traffic system based on the actual GMT vs local times of the default FS (as seen when going into the World/Time menu), then installing the patch may change this, especially in Europe (most of the patching is there, as I remember?).However, if you used real world data for your time zones, then the patch should bring FS closer to this reality.Keep in mind that the date of your AI system may make a big difference as well, since many countries start and end daylight savings time at different times (while I assume that FS changes the entire world all at once, and I don't know if it includes the areas that don't use DST (like Arizona)). I've never done a careful study of this, though.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Tom,Thanks for responding. However, I'm not sure what you mean by "the date of your AI system." I've been using GMT exclusively. Furthermore I am not following real world schedules - I'm more interested in populating airports and having the AI aircraft fly at the correct Flight Levels (especially in the U.S). I just want to make sure that the update won't cause traffic to disappear because the arrival time and departure time have been changed. :)Thanks!Matt Zagoren

No, you won't have any problem, as long as you kept everything to GMT. They may arrive and/or depart an hour later/earlier, but they will all still work.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

What Time Zone Patch are you referring to? Can't seem to dig it up in former posts.
