Getting current sim time (ZULU)

Hi developers,

although I have already successfully written a few application using the SimConnect API, I am currently stuck and maybe overseeing the obvious... Using SimConnect (for P3Dv4) I would like to query the current zulu time of the simulation. I have seen that this can be accessed using environment variables (e.g. ZULU TIME, ZULU DAY OF MONTH, etc.) but according to the documentation (, they are not accessible by SimConnect (only simulation variables are).

Probably somebody can help me out here...

Thanks a lot for your help and best regards,
Ok seem that I am blind as well - just two threads below there was a discussion regarding environment variables. I could swear I was using the search for "ZULU" before posintg. I will try it out and report back. Sorry.
