Unfortunately it always has been part of the code that it goes off at
18,000ft, an annoying problem but bearable I guess. If you've ever not
changed it by the time you pass 18,000ft (when climbing) in FS9 you get a
nice warning saying you need to reset to 29.92. Not sure if FSX is the same,
haven't really tried that yet.

My brain woke up this morning with a wizzo idea to help decrepit pilots like
me, why not a cockpit indicator which warned you that you were passing
through the transistion level and need to reset the altitude gauge?


I searched through the FSX variable list looking for something like
transition level, but failed. I then had a quick hunt through the FSX events
list, and found -


Barometric - Syncs altimeter setting to sea level pressure, or 29.92 if
above 18,000 feet.


From that I assume that the transition level is hard wired into the code at
18,000 feet.


OK for the USA I guess.
