Changing Instuments from Imperial to metric

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm currently trying to repaint the F-111 pit to represent the SU-24 pit but I've hit a bit of a wall as I can't quite figure out what's needed to change the instruments from imperial to metric units of measurement.


I've changed the relevant entries in the Cockpit.ini from imperial to metric but I'm getting mixed results, some work correctly, some not at all and some work incorrectly. Also the little text box at the bottom left hand corner of the screen is still imperial and no I haven't got it set to this in the settings menu.


I've looked at other aircraft files that are metric but I'm obviously missing something.


Any help would be much appreciated.




ps, Here's screen shot of the WIP pit.

did you add UseMetricUnit=TRUE to the AircraftData section of the data ini???


I've converted to metric a lot of cockpits ... with excellent results





knots = kmph



fuel (lbs to kg) I leave alone...

Thanks Wrench, helpful as ever.


I had it in the back of my mind that I had seen that "UseMetricUnit=TRUE" entry somewhere before but when I looked yesterday I couldn't see it. Got the instruments working properly now.
