There are two more screenshots not loading correctly in the Insider Home. I have posted them in the third page of my original post.

By the way, I think it might be possible to update your DxDiag now as the page has been updated, so anyone who wants to do so should try again.

It seems some of the iconic aiports will receive special treatment out of the box. Courchevel is looking stunning.

Still just crazy to me how they are able to procedurally place buildings on top of orthos that way without having to rely on incomplete data sets like OSM.

What about the roof and vegetation colors matching... It's crazy.

Hey! A lighthouse! 😄

 

Looks like Courchevel could be hand made... pretty nice.

I suspect this was taken from offline mode, notice the absence of textures in some areas on the ground

The bridge is missing and a couple of small buildings are in the river.

 

 

Did someone say that other airport pic is a screenshot of Courchevel? If it is then is it just a coincidence this small airport was also just released by OrbX?

Thanks for the info. Doing a quick comparison, I think the buildings between the two renditions look very similar but not identical. If someone has the airport, could they try and take a similar screenshot to the one above?

I was thinking the same. Please MS, let those be procedurally generated waves that are dependent on weather and please give them sound.

If that can happen, I can see myself parking on a beach somewhere and listening to the waves.
