The one I really like the Heli over the marina.Besides a populated marina being nice, it looks from the masts that the boats move with the waves since all the masts aren't just pointing straight up.Also love those dense tropical trees! Can almost sees the birds flying out of them now! Whoa look out! :( And I hope I'm also seeing white caps in that picture!The Effiel Tower pics on the 2nd page were nice too.If they do for the sky what they've done for the ground so far in "eye candy" we're all going to get fat! Here's hoping the Shadows on rainy days(and lens flare) are gone! So far they dont seem to be.

I do notice that the plane sitting in the snow (the Maule in frame #8) was either there when it started snowing or someone forgot to show the tracks of the plane taxiing there. It looks great with the skis and wheels embedded in the snow, but there's no trace of how the plane got there.

I see about 8 shots new. Love the new Eiffel Tower shots looks good, and the Marina shot is awesome.Love the way the tree's and the water look. My fav would be the new wet looking runways, but the one problemthat I don't like is the same in the other similar shot is that everything is wet except the wings. What's up with that?I think it should be a requirement that MS post 4 or more pics a weekI don't care if they don't show anything new, I just want new pics to examine. plz ;)

Really like the light bloom effect on the sun in some of those Paris shots - much better than FS9...

These are great new shots but they are a little small, only 800 x 600 pixels. It would be nice to see them expanded. I've tried stretching them but they loose too much detail.I love the shot of Seattle looking north.

I guess they just slewed the plane there. Would be too much work to fly it there just for doing a promo pic. In addition, in slew mode you can position it much nicer for an impressive screenshot.Wolfgang

Bird poop on the windows of the aircraft...I hope MS gets it right this time, you can't have birds flying around and no bird poop, that would be soooooo unrealistic.:) :) :) :)Matt

Indeed! I'd love to see self shadowing in action. A lot less work for us painters as well! If the shadow was a tiny bit softer (Same goes for the Aircraft shadows and ground object shadows) it would look much better though :)

"Have you ever looked at or played Zoo Tycoon? They didn'tmodel poop in that one either! ;)"They do in SIMS2! LOLI feel it is mandatory that they model poop in FS. Imagine what would happen if during your crosswind landing your gear hits poop on the runway, and poop shadow should be a given!! ;-)Regards, MichaelKDFWhttp://www.calvirair.com/mcpics/mcdcvabanner.jpgCalVirAir International

Hmmm... How did this turn from a flightsim discussion into a review of scatological fetishes? ;)

I'd like a screenshot of Paris, or (I think it was) Toronto at a higher altitude, say 3000 feet and so get an idea of what the cityscapes will look like. All the screenshots of the Eiffel Tower and whathaveyou seem to be taken looking upwards. Basically I want to know how realistic the scenery is. I've read somewhere about how it uses GPS information to accurately place roads for true VFR navigation. I'd like to see just how true that is. Also, does Molyvos on the Greek island of Lesvos actually exist this time round? Guess where I like to go on holiday...Chris
