The Future of FSX? (Edits)

Recommended Posts

Greetings folks,

 

I often wonder how far we shall see FSX, or any other flight simulator for that matter, progress in terms of 'how close to reality can it be made to look'. We have all seen many fantastic addons to our flight sim over the many years ranging from aircraft to scenery, from texture enhancements to booster programs, from freeware to payware, that have made our sim experience feel more real and enjoyable. However, I am sure you will all agree with me that it is still a far cry away from looking real. Still, with hardware ever improving, software developers getting better and bolder, who knows what we might see within the next decade in a flight simulator.

 

So let me share with you a little of what we may or may not see in the near future with this selection of post edited FSX screen shots,

 

Enjoy the view:

They are great and real enough. I would want it to look any more real than that.

 

I might get confused :lol:

I really liked them all, but number 7 is unbelievably realistic.  #6 is raising my spidey senses.

You do realise these are all edits mixing real photographs with FSX stuff...? ^_^ None of the pictures are pure FSX.

Hence the "unbelievably realistic" and "spidey senses" reference.  They needed a little more FSX.

I am not sure what these pictures are doing in this forum.  Hmmm?  Seems like the Screen Shot forum would be much more appropriate?

 

That said, I truly enjoyed the pictures.


Boy was I spacing out.  Forgive me.  I didn't realize I was in the Screen Shot forum.  Must have been a senior moment.

Don't get my hopes up! 
(Gosh, whatever 64bit platform we eventually move too has some really big shoes to fill!)

Thank all for your kind comments, perhaps P3D v2.0 will be another step in the right direction.
