Vertical speed indicator bug

Post SaturnSix »

Not sure what the A2A process is for bug reports...

I noticed that when using time acceleration in the Spitfire (I was experimenting finding the service ceiling, climb rate is pretty anemic above 30k!), the vertical speed indicator shows the vertical speed multiplied by the time acceleration rate (eg - when climbing at 500 fpm at 4x time acceleration, the VSI shows a climb rate of 2000 fpm).

Not a showstopper by any means, since I rarely use time acceleration anyway, but it does stand out.

Hello SaturnSix,

Not sure, if it is written in the Spitfire manual, but it is in ones for the GA planes. Simulation model may not work properly from time acceleration 4x and above.
I think A2A team are aware of this model behavior during time acceleration.

Yes, this is by design. Time acceleration is not supported.

thanks,

Thanks for clarifying Lewis. As I said, not a big worry - I don't use time acceleration very often anyway
