Not really off topic, and not really a product plug.
OK it is a product plug, these guys do the NZ digital thing and it's a beaut.

Oh my ...that is stunning Charl. Are they affiliated with any flight sim developers?

I don't believe so, but wouldn't it be cool if an avid simmer infiltrated their ranks?
They must have an array of the most fantastic digital toys.

I think it's time for a fully interactive and AI-driven VR flightsim experience.
These guys did it for Team NZ.

Certainly a very interesting concept that an Architecture and City Planning company like Buildmedia is using the gaming industry software from Epic Games Unreal Engine 4 version that was launched in 2014.



In terms of flight sim developers Australian studio Sector D2 published through Humble Games released December 2020 Project Wingman that was developed using Epic Games Unreal Engine 4

Maybe someone else is looking into their Crystal Ball of Flight Simming game engines with the idea of using the latest version Unreal Engine 5 that was recently released into early access 3 weeks ago, it's expected to fully launch sometime in early 2022.

If someone took the systems and gameplay from Jane's F-15E and plugged them in to UE5 with hi-res VR, I might undergo whatever financial ruin that would involve, and never be heard from again...

... and Facebook promised that its privacy policy would remain the same.

Too late FB I am owned by Google! :lol:

VR, as happened with DVD's, will probably be driven by the porn industry.
Oculus would have difficulty in erm, keeping up.

EDIT:
I went looking, and maybe the upcoming Pimax will answer part of the question.
