A:STRUCTURAL ICE PCT giving incorrect readings in SU10

Hello,

It seems the STRUCTURAL ICE PCT is not giving correct reading in SU10: once ice is detected it almost immediately give back 100% icing and never drops below 100% even if icing conditions are removed :

See below example :

structural ice percentage returns 100% , even though OAT is -35 and not flying in moisture, while Devmode icing is showing zero:

On same flight ,even on the ground , with OAT =50c , structural icing still returning 100%:

Conclusion:

Once structural icing is detected, STRUCTURAL ICE PCT is stuck on 100% during all of the flight. DEV mode is percentage however seems to give expected correct readings.

Hello @MarwanGharib

We have not been able to reproduce this issue and this simvar was matching the devmode debug value during our tests on SU10.
Do you also have the problem with an Asobo aircraft and clear skies conditions selected?

Regards,
Sylvain

Visual icing is separate from the structural icing Avar.

the value you see in the dev menu is the visual icing. The structural icing is the performance hit.


something i discovered 2 years ago and is elaborated in my mod's documentation.
