Southern Hemisphere - wrong season

Postby Mangoes » Thu Jan 04, 2018 9:16 pm

I have Prepar3d v4.1 set to start to system time, however, the Season is synced to the Northern Hemisphere. In the Image it can be seen that January 5, 2018, 8.05am is shown - the Season shows winter, but in the Southern Hemisphere (my system settings) we are into the second month of Summer.

Is there a fix for this - so that the Sim starts with the correct time and season, ie the Same as those set in Windows 10 and as checked in the Prepar3D Options.

Hello Mangoes,

Where is your starting location when you see this behavior?

Any Airport in Australia or New Zealand has the same result, but this, the screen shot, was taken in Sydney (YSSY) Gate 32

I don't own P3D v4, but it looks like the season for southern hemisphere was correct in the previous version v3. This information might help the developers.

Hello Mangoes,

I worked on a ticket that was related to this issue located here:

viewtopic.php?f=6312&t=127212&p=169212& ... re#p169212

The descriptions are different but the cause was the same. This issue should be fixed with the next release.
