Wow indeed. Incredible amount of work there, such detail.
But there's a danger when you go for the closeup eye candy: where do you draw the line?
Consistency is the biggest goal.
It jars when you have all those hi-res elements, and they end up sitting on a photoreal smudge:
Then you have to back up a bit until the PR works, but then the other stuff was wasted effort!


It's not yet released, so let's wait and see the final thing.
This sim is going to make serious demands on content creators.

Maybe it's just me (more than likely) but, other than airport detail, what's the point of super detailed yachts miles away from an airport and the like, at ground level?
All I need, personally, is a fair representation of the ground Im flying over....just me.
