System time always starts from 12:00:00 instead of time of the mission


Recommended Posts

The time shown on the DED page does not match the time of the mission by default. Manual setting is doable but one cannot ensure synchronization with multiple clients. The best way is to match the aircraft time with mission time during the startup.

I will check with the team I believe it is meant to be zulu time

Yes you are right. I was starting 15:00 in Syria and get 12:00 always.

Ok thank you, it is correct as is, the clocks should be set to zulu and can be adjusted manually if required.

The time starts at Zulu but the clock doesn't actually start ticking until your aircraft is powered up, that's why it's always delayed. For this reason you need to do a time hack to make sure the indicated time is correct. Afaik this is done in real life as well where wristband watches are synced during the briefing and then the aircraft time is synced when you've stepped.

I haven't tested it but if it is true, then it is really a bug @BIGNEWY. I don't think that such simple and important issue would be left to pilots while the onboard systems can just read the correct time precisely, while our simplest watches can do it as well.

I am looking into it, as I understand it the TOD time-of-day should allow for the synchronisation of the time. I will ask the team in the morning. 

 

thanks

I've tested MP and the time in the IPC seems correct and synced to UTC as expected. Let me know if you see different. 

 

thanks

I do confirm that in the plane, time it has to be in Zulu. If not synced on Zulu time, some systems should not work properly.
