With my old version of FS, I’m asked what unit system (metric or imperial) I’m going to use when I create a new file. Is this feature disabled with the latest versions? 😉

Anyway, you can check the used unit by drawing a square (each side = 1 unit, whatever unit it is), giving it a thickness of 1 unit, and giving it a density of 1 (like if it was water). Then check for the weight.

1 cube meter of water weights 1000 kg.

1 cube foot of water must weight around 60 lbs.
