Looks great to me, those little street lights are dynamic, not like painted textures.Only a few hrs (9) to go to the fs weekend in Holland. Hehe, we have a secret agent there who'll be posting comments and pics live to our xplane blog. That makes it 11pm my time, I doubt I'll sleep much!

Well have to say as a rw pilot have never seen the blurred textures that are repeated over and over....I wish the best for xplane 10-hope it is the best-but this shot does not do anything for me me-my imho....

Wow! That is really impressive. And it's running above 30fps. I can't wait till this comes out next month.

I have been a huge fan of what they have shown so far... but this looks a bit off to me. The lights themselves look a bit like big yellow orbs, and in the background it becomes a bit muddy. Also, the lights that are far away are brighter than the ones up close, though I would think that it should be the other way around. While it is certainly an improvement over default FSX (I was just flying the Canarsie approach with default everything and it looked terrible), I still think that some of the older preview shots looked better. It might be just this one shot though. But comparing it to some real life shots, it still seems just a bit off, for lack of a better word.Is anybody else looking forward to what we will find out later today at FSWeekend?

These are great lighting effects. What is missing are the cars that will be on the road that will break up the lighting pattern. That is what does it in real life and I suspect if a person took a picture of real life without any cars, it would look similar to this. Bottom line, the lighting effects seem to look good and function very well as one f many visual components that can make this simulator look very plausible.

What i think is missing is signage, petrol station signs, shopping centre signs and strip lighting, hospitals, logos, takeaway food outlets that sort of thing, you know just human visual pollution, I don't know if that can be added or not, be interesting if it can even as custom scenery.As MikeT707 said the traffic will make it move and flow so that will help.

I think this new x-plane night shot looks absolutely superb. It would be nice to see this running in a video with traffic. I can't remember seeing this sort of detail in a night shot in a flight sim. The only other thing that comes close is UTX's 3d lights for FSX, which looks good but doesn't seem as detailed as these x-plane shots.utxeurope8.jpg

That's because it looks like each light source in the X-Plane shot is coming from an actual 3D object -- a house, sign, light post, etc. -- whereas a lot of UTX's lighting detail is "baked" into the ground texture.

Yes, I have UTX and can't fly fsx without it, ESP at night. But those lights, when u get low enough, are just glowing spheres hanging in the air, no poles. Very good though. Which means that the ultra real, live lighting of xp10 should be stunning. Let's hope Lelystad shows some film of it in action, and yes, with traffic!

Wow, now I REALLY prefer X Plane 10 out of the box to the best payware in FSX. Thanks for posting.wink.pngGeof, with all due respect, if the latest night shot of x plane 10 doesn't do it for you, then I don't know what will.

The screenshot is not bad, it just needs more contrast/"bloom"/hdr effetcs. Here's how it looks after a simple edit of levels/contrast:night1i.jpg

Oh God, Paris with UTX is great, but wow, with these new effects....No worries, as they're using openstreetmap data, your wish should be granted.That last post with the edited screenshot- why? Now it looks like UTX, all the colours too similar and too much glow. Just my 2cents

It's just about impossible to make a direct comparison to a real night time photo seeing as just about every night time photo is long exposure and makes everything brighter than it really is. I still, by far, prefer XP10 over UTX. About the only thing FSX has going for it in night screenshots is the light bloom.

Of course it does. wink.pngJust not as exaggerated as FSX. However, that's just an opinion. Others might say it's very sufficient.

Wow... Yup. I like that more. I guess I can just mess with my display settings to make it more to my taste.
