I would like to start seeing more places than just Hawaii in the previews, but the overhead look at the Arizona Memorial was pretty nice.

Very nice!Good:* Much better default textures (than FSX)* Shorelines look better.* Are transparent water textures new? (ie the Arizona)* Cockpit shadows / Self shadowing* Textures on cliff faces not vertically stretched* Trees casting shadows? Surely they can do clouds.* Horizon looks great* Lighting in general looks much nicer, more dynamic.* Autogen trees merge better with landscape / better coloring.Not so good:* Still no cloud shadows!* The streams seem way too reflective, they look frozen white.* Saw some autogen popup (shrub/bushes and some buildings).

*crying* My god... it's... so... beautiful.... *crying*Funny they show a shot of the same area as seen in screen 5 of the March 2011 Screenshots that appears to be a touched up image, the background almost looks like a painting. It looks equally as odd in the video.

Almost like its been post-processed in the video. I wouldn't put it past Microsoft, remember the infamous DX10 screenshot from the FSX previews.Hopefully though its just that the lighting has been improved in Flight (more dynamic range? more saturated?) and still needs some tweaking/toning down.

Yeah, understandable. It will be on there by tonight no need to worry about that, same happened with one of the webisodes before (the first or second?) where it was released on another site first... but it was later added to the MS Flight website. Weird how this person found it though, but im not complaining, its too awesome to complain :DJamie ♥

It sure looks good, but I have to say I'm a little worried about performance. In all the webisodes so far there clearly has been some stuttering going on, and this with fairly simple aircraft and scenery.Sure hope they sort it out before release.

+1 to what Matthew S. stated in his post. the cockpit shadowing looks real nice I thought and the water with the U.S.S. Arizona was real sharp looking. I was thinking I saw some of the pop up scenery in the back ground as well and I wasn't too happy about that but it is still early in the Flight process.Kyle

It does look better, I also see stutterings and that's over water, what will it be over a big city?

Kyle, not trying to argue with you but we are now 11 months after the announcement of Flight, when will Flight stop been in early development, not two months before release right?I wasn't to happy about the autoben popup myself.

I wonder why this preview is on youtube and not on the official Flight website?The new video looks pretty good however :-)

Give me fully overcast skies and improved ATC and I'll buy it on the first day, no matter what the rest looks like.

What's worse is that the computer Microsoft uses for their webisodes is probably not a low end model, to say the least. Hawaii does seem to be coming along just fine but I wonder how the rest of the world looks; better or worse (which do you think)?Regards, Mike Mann

Keep in mind they're recording while playing, this does look impressive if you really think about it, and it preforms really well too.... or it seems to at least.Jamie ♥

It is a streaming compressed video from bing\msn, recorded and then recompressed to YouTube and then streamed again... I wouldn't expect it to be an accurate representation of the original production.

There has always been showcased areas so the rest of the world cannot look better. The same or not as good, but not better.

Actually it was a rhetorical question; the problem was that I couldn't find a rhetorical question type emoticon.Regards, Mike Mann

Judging from the video, this version of flight sim has the potential to be my most anticipated fs release since I started in the 90s as a child with FS4.

Anticipation, expectations and hopes on one side; versus the realization that Microsoft (despite their awesome resources) can deliver a less than impressive product at times.Regards, Mike Mann
