I don't think the current hover mechanism that they seem to have installed on that 747 doesn't allow it to go as far as the runway :)

I don't know. It looks like the runway is too flat. I mean it looks good, but it looks like there is 1/2" of water over the whole runway. Rather than looking wet, it looks flooded. The shader needs to be adjusted. Not saying I can do better. It looks like the first water shaders (Morrowind style), rather than the newer ones (like the PS3.0 in Age of Empires 3; which look great!). However, I am sure that the frame rates and hardware requirements would jump with longer shader instructions. Not everyone can afford the new X1900XLX video cards in SLI... It still looks good, I'm not complaining! :D I think you guys do amazing work! I remember playing FS98. That was 8 years ago. Those were great graphics. Then 2000. 6 years ago. Compare that with FSX! WOW!BTW: Off topic question on product design & generations. How soon do you start working on the next version? Do you finish this, take a much needed vacation, and then go back to work? Or are you currently working on stuff that won't be ready for FSX, so you keep working on it for the next version?

<By the time we start one version we have a list of things we know won't be in it so I suppose you could say we're always working on 2 versions--this one and the next.

Rather than looking wet, it looks flooded.Most runways are flat and they sometimes get flooded too. You may be distracted by the zoom and because he forgot to turn on antialiasing. Next time he can take a better one.

Not saying I can do better..."What you're not see here is that this is as "wet" as it gets: the rain is on at the highest setting. :)And while everyone's entitled to their opinion, (including us :))we here in Seattle see a lot of wet concrete and asphalt. In conditions from the merest smidgen of a hint of a drizzle, to full on rock your world downpours. :)That being said, if the feature ships the way it currently is, it is customizable to a small degree.Cheers,J

How about showing the same thing as at present, but maybe from a different angle/perspective.Surely one pic a week that will sustain intense discussion for that period at this site and others won't be that difficult.I'll even volunteer to do it for you... :-)Cheers,Chris Porter:-outtaPerthWestern AustraliaMy machine specs if you want me to do the job for you :-) ...Intel Pentium IV 3.0GHz (800FSB) Socket 478 pins CPU w/Hyper-Thread Technology MSI 875P NEO FIS2R, AGP 8X, i875P ICH5R Chipset with Gigiabit LanKingmax 512MB PC3200 Double Data Rate (DDR) RAM CAS-2.5- 400MHz Rated x 2BUILT By ATI (Original) Radeon 9800PRO w/TV Out & DVI 128Meg DDRTEAC DV-W50E, 4x DVD-R/ 2x RW, 16xCD-R, 8xCD-RW, 16xDVD, 32x CD-ROM Internal Drive Only Western Digital Raptor 36.0GB HDD IDE, 8MB Cache, 5.2ms, 10,000rpm , S-ATA, w/DataLifeguard WD 80Gig HD for dataHercules Game Theater XP, 6.1 speakers Dolby
