So, it seems like at least Syd may have been assuming the deflection was in 'dots * 5' rather than 'degrees * 5' - I'd love Syd to confirm or deny that. The upshot of this is that the GS indicator in Primus is, **I think**, about 1/3rd as sensitive as it should be. However, I could easily

That might be best . I know very little about what information a real scope displays , and intercepting a radial is the pilots job , so I dont know if I can bring myself to add that line ;). I know , Im sure you mean this as a training tool, and I'll play around with ideas , but I'd be interested

Sounds like you guys know far more about the subject than I do . I'll see what I can do . The simplest idea I had was to overlay another transparent texture with a single line that could be rotated to the runway heading , but I dont know if that's suitable. Maybe a property enabled line could be
