During preflight at the gate did you verify local/Zulu time?

During preflight at the gate did you verify local/Zulu time and was it correct before pushback / taxi out?

Is your default flight at your local airport ? which one?

Do you use your PC's current time as your flight sim time when you begin a new flight?

The same Problem here. It seems to be, that the sun under enhanced atmospheric settings don*t move. I began a flight in Dawn. After few ours of flight, it remains Dawn, the Sun didn`t rise. In other flightsim forums this problem ist reportet also from other users.

I just had the same thing happen and I don't use enhanced atmospheric settings. One thing I did you was change the time AFTER I had started the sim. I don't normally do this but I set it wrong on the welcome screen and didn't catch it until after the sim was running. Did either of you change the time or even date in the sim after it was already running?
