That depends on what MagDec.bgl file you have installed. I believe 2005 was correct for the FS9 and FSX releases.

DJ,

Thanks for the answer.
I do not know .. I may have updated FS9/FSX in the past ... I seem to recall there was a site that updated such .. waypoints etc to get the sims rather updated.

I will go see if I have made notes on it.

DJ,

I went here: http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.html

I got the new 2013 MAGDEC updates and put them in FS9/FSX/P3D

The Author's Readme file mentions:
"Updated Magnetic variation data for FS2004 & FSX-P3D
----------------------------------------------------

Magnetic variation data calculated by FS2004 date back from 1993 and have significantly changed (several degrees in some part of the world).
Those used by FSX are more recent (>2005) but are now also outdated.

Until 2010-2011, most charts included runway, ILS and procedure headings based on 2005 magnetic variation. Currently, new charts implement 2010 magnetic variation that, in most cases,
will remain current until 2015(unless changes make that published procedures are outside of the tolerance). In some cases, even more recent values of magnetic variation have been implemented
FS2004 and FSX calculate magnetic variation using a special latitude/longitude table that is contained in the MAGDEC.BGL file

The new provided MAGDEC.BGL tables (MagDec Files folder) correct all magnetic variations for FS2004 & FSX/P3D based on values calculated from the IGRF-11 model at epox 2010 and epox 2013
Values were calculated according to the exact IGRF-11 mathematical model"

So, now, do I change this:

[FSBUILD]
MAGYEAR=2005

to

[FSBUILD]
MAGYEAR=2013

Since the current charted epoch is 2010 (for most everything), change it to 2010... as he notes, the epoch typically changes at 5 year intervals. I've got mine set to 2010. In truth, it really doesn't make much difference since headings aren't exported and most of my flying is via FMC or GPS...

DJ,

Ok,

I will do as you say ... and change it from the 2013 to the 2010 files he provided for FS9/FSX/P3D.

What about this ... what year should be inserted here XXXX?

[FSBUILD]
MAGYEAR=XXXX

Ok,
2010

I did not know if ... whatever value (2009, 2010, 2013) it would actually make a difference within FSBuild's planning.
Or if a wrong value would cause a problem.

Have a good evening.

Frankly, I've never checked to see if the value actually does anything or is a remnant of earlier years...

With the current magvar table 2010 is as high as you can go.
