Hey, I could see my house from here...

...if I lived in Wellington.
Having fun dropping 'autogen' into Aerofly FS2, even though IPACS have said that it's too early to be looking at this sort of thing. So this isn't a work-in-progress shot, more of an experiment. Here the placed buildings extend to Porirua, but not Petone, so I suspect that if it included the Hutt buildings, you'd still be able to see them...
I haven't checked performance, as I don't generally worry too much about that sort of thing, but Aerofly still runs super-smooth here.
EDIT: the POI labels are 'default' in FS2, you can toggle them on and off with a key.

Yes it runs "super-smooth" without AI, without active weather from outside, with the relatively simpel aircraft without systems. What do you think about the performance, if all these thing are build into?
Aerofly 2 is a work in progress. I like the optics, the rest not.

Sure, we don't know what the 'finished' sim will include, and how that will affect performance. Maybe they should keep it 'lite' and go for the VR market. Someone mentioned a stutter in my short Lyttelton video clip, and although I can't see it in the original video, I certainly noticed it in a new Wellington video, flying over a ridge amongst dense houses certainly made it grind in a similar way to some poorly optimised airports in FSX. I think IPACS were caught out by the experiments with cultivation, they have said that this was meant to enhance the immediate area around an airport, rather than do whole regions.
But I wouldn't underestimate the VR market -- this may be the VR killer app for older folks:)
It's easy to pick out issues while FS2 is being developed, but as long as they are still working on it, I'm keen to support them.

Dito. It is no question, that it has potential and at the moment it is in my eyes the only Simulation you can "out of the box" fly real VFR and not Garmin VFR.... :D
