Snippet of FSX in-game footage from nVNews

Recommended Posts

nVNews had someone at the E3 NVidia booth filming some of the games on display. Within the medely there is some FSX in-game footage (a very poor jet landing in chase-plane view and a RedBull run in tail-plane view). The colour and resolution is fairly poor, but they are some more crumbs for our hungry minds.http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=70254Footage starts at 6' 10"

lol my download started working fast, I disagree with the snippet... It was spectacular, did you see the new runway textures? The split in the ashphalt?Amazing and the best airport environment I've ever seen in FS...The only problem with FSX looks to me like what are they going to do for FS11? Almost everyone's dreams are coming true in FSX, and the new approach ACES has taken in interacting with their customer base means that most of the dreams and desires for years of users are in FSX...If everything is improved to where 3rd party 'fixes' (i.e. ashphalt textures, ocean water and color etc) aren't needed, then what will be left to improve for FS11? *panic*

>If everything is improved to where 3rd party 'fixes' (i.e.>ashphalt textures, ocean water and color etc) aren't needed,>then what will be left to improve for FS11? *panic*Well, that's the way it should be - FS should be so good out of the box that in terms of colors, water, ground textures, etc there should be little need for 'obvious' improvement. Any changes will mostly address specific tastes that folks have but there will be little need to 'fix' something.Of course FlyTampa and FlightScenery will still be indispensable to bring in really immersive airport environment and PMDG (and others) to deliver top notch aircraft.Michael J.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...argo_hauler.gifhttp://sales.hifisim.com/pub-download/asv6-banner-beta.jpg

It's great and worth the download!Look at the mountain range in the Red Bull segment (at 7min 54sec), it seems to have a very steep cliff. Ive not seen that in FS9. Also, there's a moving truck on the apron (at 7min 45sec).

>awful blurries , and the same tire smoke (fs9).... sorryYeah, what was up with those ground textures in the Lear mission? Blech! Goodness knows what settings they were using. Kinda made me glad the video quality was so poor.

Did I see wing vortices effects when the lear touched down?.Also even with the awfull video quality the runway graphic's and complexity are a buge improvement from FS2004.The ground textures.... hmmm not sure whats going on there looks like about 100m per pixel:)John

Yes, good catch on the wing vorticees... Very nice!!!Nice work ACES team!!!! I love it!!! Any word on if there is a "dewpoint" variable in XML or a "relative humidity" variable for being able to switch those effects on or off? I don't need to know now, but am kinda curious if anyone wants to share ;)I would call the video bad compression... There's so much glare from the screen that unfortunately the video is really compressed...

The guy landing that Lear should receive a heavy fine and a licence suspension from the virtual FAA. I have not seen a plane handled like that I handed the controls to my wife.RH

I particularly liked the way the trees outline the fields everywhere in the Red Bull mission. Really looking forward to exploring the new FSX world. There's going to be a heck of a lot out there.Yeah, that Lear driver could have done with the hoops alright.Mike.
