Hi all, I am planning to try and learn how to use a mcdu in flight planning. I was wondering how do you do a work around of ATC that gives directions that don't correspond with the mcdu/fmc? I have tried one flight and it got pretty messed up because of ATC's directions that didn't match what the flight management computer was trying to do: like SIDS; departure altitudes, etc. IMHO, FSX wasn't designed to account flight management systems even though it's default aircraft in reality uses them!
Those of you that have mastered this aspect of flight simming I will take all the help I can get.
I am using Aerosoft's Airbus X and Wilco's Ejets Embraer 175 and 195 aircraft.
