I encountered a situation and I can't find where is the change, it eludes me. I have a plane that shows everything in metric system (I have RangeUnit=KM in avionics.ini and data.ini file). So far so good. But in cockpit.ini I have, for many different instruments  :

 

- ValueUnit=FEET

-ValueUnit=FPM

-ValueUnit=FEET

-ValueUnit=NM

-ValueUnit=KNOTS

 

Question 1: How come that I see speed, height and distance in metric system if in cockpit ini everything is in imperial metric ?

Question 2 : to see speed, distances and height in metric system, is it enough for them to be specified in data.ini and avionics.ini only ? (RangeUnit=KM)

 

I ask that because I have another plane in which it shows me everything in "NM", "FEET" and "KTS", even if I have changed in "KM" in avionics.ini and data.ini. That is why I am puzzled and I can't pinpoint where is the catch. Could anyone explain me what I am doing wrong or what I am missing please ? Thank you

check in aircraft data.ini :

[AircraftData]
EmptyMass=988
UseMetricUnit=TRUE
EmptyInertia=4982.532,2829.676,7812.208
ReferenceArea=86.01
ReferenceSpan=10.5
ReferenceLength=11.97
CGPosition=0.00,0.0,0.0
