everyone probably knows but I still see queries on other sites. take NZAA for example . default takeoff and landing is 05. but in reality most used is 23L for landing and 05 departure because of prevailing westerly. To change from default go to weather in menu at top of screen , click on custom and move red pointer on compass to south (180 degrees) and save. also increase wind strength to lowest setting on slider and save. you can set default direction for say a 05 departure at NZAA then before landing reset 180 degrees and get an 02 landing at NZCH 02 (which is again the most commonly used ion reality).when you set the wind direction the tower will give you the correct approach details for that runway.
