Time Preview

Postby XCLTM3 » Wed Oct 16, 2019 8:03 am

Hi,

I just wanted to know if there is any other function within P3Dv4.5 Client that can be utlized as a Daylight Savings adjustment?

I just came across the Time Preview function and adjusted it back 1 hour - as I usually fly in the same region and it is currently observing DST.

Appreciate your assistance/response.

The sim allows you to define the date/time in the sim when you start a flight, there should be no reason to use the time preview to change it back an hour unless you didn't set the correct time for your flight to begin with.

Hi Ed, @WarpD

after conducting some more research it appears that P3D doesn't correctly recognize the differing DST's around the world - and hence the use of 3rd Party Add-Ons are required to achieve it.

I located this post and it stipulates

I just thought that this issue would have been addressed by LM by now since we're into version 4.5 and there should be no need to purchase a 3rd party add-on.
