Amazing shots!!!!! World2Xplane has done so much to transform Xplane! It makes the world feel so alive. And the night shots are amazing as well, XP10s night lighting is the bees knees as they say

I will never understand why x-plane looks so good for others but for me its a very grey bland world.

Unbelievable, absolutely stunning, it can't get any better!

Come on, these pictures show the most realistic looking scenery I've ever seen on any sim platform! ;-)

And this is why I can't drag myself over to Prepar3d 2.2. I'd rather just fly x-plane 10.25...And wait patiently for 10.30:)

Do you have set your monitor accidentally to black/white and/or low contrast?  :lol:  I see very colourful pictures ... and very alive ...

But if you like comic style colours :O, there ist a new plugin called Blu-fx - with it you can set brightness, contrast, saturation, ...

 

And this is ONLY World2XPlane?

 

As far as I can see - yes. And of course the phototextures from simheaven.

I don't want to sound rude, but these look very bright, and almost childish. It looks fake!

not sure.... 2 things: if simheaven has done the satelite photos, the ground will look as good as it looks above... now for the 3D, all depends on how good the OSM data is in the requested region. Also, just for example, if a region has very specific buildings, and there no 3D buildings yet, then it might look good, but not as real as it could look.

I'm afraid not. Simple reason, outside of Central Europe, OSM mapping isn't particularly great. Most of the buildings in the library are also European, as nobody has yet contributed outside of Europe. So it will remain this way until someone does

Funny, I fired up P3D v2.2 this morning and thought exactly the same thing

I wish we could lay this "my preferred sim vs your preferred sim" thing aside for a moment and remember, that we all belong to the relatively small bunch of flightsim enthusiasts. And as such, one simply has to

admit, that these pictures show the most realistic scenery ever to be seen on any platform. At least that's what I think and feel when I see these screenshots!

It's only the World2XPlane scenery and photo scenery files from simHeaven plus the B58 BARON from carenado. I'm not sure if the experimental (dense) forests from alpilotx has any effect in this scenario but that was installed as well.

 

And it's like this all over the world?

 

Most likely not. Germany has rather nice OSM coverage.

I apologise, I'd had enough yesterday of people going out of the way to put down everything, no matter how many people like it, and I'm guessing this remark came from an FSX/P3D user. 

 

It's evident that you can't please everyone, and some people will put things down no matter what,

 

In this thread alone, one complains that his X-Plane is dull and bland, another says it's too bright and childish.   :lol:

 

Another thing people seem to forget is that this program is a tool for making scenery, and not scenery itself. You are free to change the houses, textures, colours and generate what you like.

So, nothing to contribute then! Personally photoreal scenery, accurately placed autogen when combined with blade element theory flight modelling represents a very positive step in the right direction enabling proper VFR simming. Is this something you really cannot understand? Now I don't mean to offend in any way but might I suggest that If not, then perhaps threads such as this are best avoided by you.

No I was basicly asking how op got it to look so good. I only have the demo but the sky and ground colors appear greyed out and very bland color wise

I believe he is using the Raleigh scatter tweak. That is why the colors are so nice. If you go to the xplane forum there is a sticky at the top that talks about the tweak and how to implement it

Ah, I see, my apologies! It takes a bit of work but the combination of World2Xplane and G2XPL (for the underlying photoscenery) really work together to great effect. World2XPlane places autogen in the correct positions atop the underlying photo stuff  and is a huge leap forward for us, it really fulfills the X-Plane promise of "as real as it gets". Tony and others (Blacky75) are working hard  and the effect of what they have done is astonishing in sim. I actually deleted the other two sims I had because they no longer came even close to what can be done in X-Plane now. Caveat: OSM data is very good in some countries, not so much in others so mileage varies as they say. I've personally not looked at the Raleigh scatter tweak, instead have been using SkyMaxx Pro so I can't opine on it.
