I don’t know if anybody else noticed, it’s kind of funny in a way and sad at the same time considering Asobo don’t seem to understand how a localiser works.
I was flying the TBM on arrival (base) with the ILS frequency tuned on both sets and bearing pointers set to NAV 1 and NAV 2. I noticed they were actually pointing towards the airport. I’m talking about the bearing pointers here (blue needles) and NOT the CDI.
That is weird obviously as in the real world bearing pointer will never point towards a localiser antenna.
Its a shame we can’t change course manually in FS2020 as soon as an ILS frequency is tuned (at least on the Garmin) because I’m getting a feeling that the localizer works like a VOR in FS2020. I’ll give it a try tomorrow on the steam gauge C172…
Edit: ILS / Localisers appear to work as they should, I tested it with the conventional C172, the course deviation indicator does not respond to changing the OBS, flying in opposite direction creates “reverse sense” etc. The weird thing remains that RMIs and bearing pointers in FS2020 are able to point towards a localiser antenna.
At Dubrovnik airport, ILS runway 11 tuned (110.10), ILS identified correctly (IDU), bearing pointers (blue) visible pointing towards the localiser antenna.
