FSX cloud shadows: its last hurrah?

Recommended Posts

SteveFX has made a FSX cloud shadow add-on for his excellent DX10 Fixer which breaths in a little new life into this 10 year old sim.  In case you've been wondering what its all about, here's a few shots of its effect.  Sure, other sims can do this (possibly better), but for us die-hards...

Well, not exactly cloud shadows, but definitely a beauty queen:

Thanks for viewing!

I already have the fixer, I sense an extra purchase in the new year.

 

Nice old Cessna - lovely chrome finish.

Why the self-deprecation? Even P3D is basically a ten year old sim with some new tricks! So no reason to dump FSX since texture, plane, weather and ATC addons are available to make it look just as good as P3D! Now I won't go into X-Plane but please don't apologize for using FSX! How are us FS9 diehards going to feel?

Having that light and shade on the terrain makes a huge difference to feeling of flying.

Sorry you took it that way.  All I wanted to point out is what is probably the last major feature upgrade for FSX, hence the title.  As for the Cessna, it's a C195 as modeled by http://www.alabeo.com/index.php?accion=product&correl=106.

Just pulling your leg, I hope you did not take my comment the wrong way ;)
