Thanks a lot for your comments.
i have noticed that when using autopilot with option 5 (fly heading bug) in this map, the autopilot flies one degree to the left of the heading bug. example: if i set the heading bug to 123, autopilot flies 122.
Yes. As u2fly said, this scenery is set magnetic variation(1degree to east).
This function was added from YSVer. 20120701.
However, autopilot heading bug mode and ATC's direction of YS are still using True bearing, not Magnetic bearing.
I think it is a bug of YS, and still reported it to Mr. Yamakawa.

A lot of airports to fly (yes it's make me confused where to fly). Since you're a newbie, you contribute a scenery with a lot of airports and that's very good. I like it. :)

A lot of thanks for this map K2W! I can fly over my native valley :-)
For your culture, Sion airport is the only mixed civil/military airport in Switzerland.

Hello, every one.
I'm progressing renewal ALPS map project.
Now, I complete North half of my plan, and decide to publish it.
this include from Lyon of France in the west to Venice of Italy and Salzburg of Austria in the east.
You can get it from my web site
https://sites.google.com/view/k2wysf/modern
AlpsV2_North.png
I wish to finish South half until next spring. But, I'm a little tired to making scenery, so I will do an other project, making aircraft add-on, before progressing south half.
Please have fun flight our new north ALPS map.
And, please expect and wait for completion the other half.
