Is there a program that translates kilometers to miles and meters to feet for the speed bar? Thanks a lot. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Not as far as I am aware but the way I do it is as follows (roughly):

3m = 10ft so
3000m = 10,000 ft

and for kmh to mph (according to speedo on car!) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

60mph = 100kmh
so
600kmh = 360mph http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

funny I keep seeing 750 plus at 9000-odd m. in the TA152 which is 450mph+ http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

hope this helps

no problems

Or you could use the in cockpit views which have the appropriate guages in MPH/Feet for the amercan/british planes. Personally, I dont, I wanna see where I am going and what I am shooting at lol! That kind of "immersion" just doesn't do it for me.

Look in the Sturmovik Essentials thread. it wont do it in the sim but you can jot down the major points like 250,300,350 etc..
