The duck shot (why a duck ? Why a no chicken ? 😁)

Chickens can't fly, they won't be an issue for aircraft.

I disagree, they can fly a short distances. In a town near me, they have chickens that run loose in the town, and at night they fly up into the trees to spend the night. :laugh:   huey1177.gif

Where in the video do they mention this?

And what is with those blurry mountrain textures at 2:02 in the video? Must be ultra-low graphics settings (or at least I hope)!

I agree, the mountains do not look good.  And in a lot of screenshots they don't look great either, so I don't think it is just settings.

Those low altitude shots are outstanding.  This is going to be a bush pilot's virtual wet dream.  

I hope so.  I hope that it isn't like previous sims where you could land anywhere.  I hope the ground has proper resistance, rocks and bushes and things to catch on, etc.  Just hope it is realistic.  And it sounds like they are working on it, as Ground Friction Formula is one of the issues.

He he, could be, I don’t think so, but it could be’. A small hyperactive moon though and a truly gigantic city. An alien world 😁 !

Looks like a full moon at night to me.  The clouds are just lit by the moon.  It does seem off though, compare to this (Edited, removed photo as may be fake shot from Airplane.  Also, I now think it is dark because it is paused by the menu, and is just the sun.  See below comment from aleex and my response.)

Edited by GlideBy
removed photo, changed opinion.

My brother has Coronavirus, confirmed by testing. On 3/26 he almost didn't survive the night.  He had extreme trouble breathing and was given a steroid inhaler.  He was very weak, had nausea, and other issues that aren't pleasant.  As of this update he is feeling much better, and seems he will be fine.  Stay safe out there.  (Updated 4/6)

Gotta be honest, anything which facilitates more Airforceproud95 videos can only be a good thing. 🤣

May I thank you for making me aware of Airforceproud videos . Absolutely hilarious lol .

I want some Canadian shots, we haven't seen anything from Canada since that B-Roll footage from last year, and that was a very foggy approach into Toronto-Billy Bishop.

I visited Detroit once. I saw Canada from there. You mean there's more? 😄

I think it’s just a pause mode or something. Too dark to be at day, but it’s the sun what is shining. The moon doesn’t have any flares on other screenshots. And there are sun rays behind the clouds.  
 

and the “Objetives” tag on the upper side..

Good point.  So I looked at the Multiplayer video again.  And when he activates the menu, it does darken the rest of the screen.  So if it was night with the moon, then it darkened it, it would be too dark.  So I agree, it must be the sun, and it looks weird because it was darkened by the menu.  (I wonder if they posted that to test us)

I think you are right.  Then that is fake.  I will delete it since, I agree with aleex.

Also Hawaii.

I don't remember seeing any Canadian shots (doesn't mean there weren't any) but I'd enjoy seeing downtown Toronto, and I'd really like to see downtown Ottawa!

I'm sure VATSIM will still exist because the notions you highlighted; however, you have the realize 99% of simmers don't use VATSIM...  

I'm surprised this post got so many hearts.  I think more than 1 percent of simmers use VATSIM.  There's a lot of users on that network.

I love the whole 'one world' thing however I'm also a bit worried. One of the things I used to love about FSX was VATSIM and flying in controlled airspace with only limited examples of idiots/griefers. I can just imagine trying to fly an ILS approach to Rwy 16L at YSSY only to be smashed by some word not allowed in a Cessna.

I was almost positive this was actually a very well-done full moon scene. But the filename is "sun.png", so...womp womp.

Seems like a terribly misleading picture to post. That's unfortunate.

I always believed that MH370 was brought down by high-flying chickens sucked into the engines over the Indian Ocean.
