Glad ChaoticBeauty got a well deserved shout out.

For the second time already!

Well deserved. He's one of the most positively commited guys about that new sim. Together with guys like @Krakin, @simtom or @Shack95 ...

Control surface authority & ground effect seem improved with the X-MAS update - thanks ASOBO !!
Keep on improving the AERODYNAMICS and MSFS will be unbeatable! 👍

This update has the first true screenshot of The Netherlands I believe. LiduRob captured the city of Naarden quite nicely. interesting how, next to the sewage treatment plant, there is a building that isn't there in real life.


Cheers🍻,

another great update - loving the short Vids

really hope the waves in the 1st Casebug92496684 shot are not static - they look very realistic

Buntan looks brilliant

Minor gripe - in the 4th Casebug92496684 shot the Cockpit Bokeh looks terrible, and leads the eye into it rather than away and to the landscape behind.

 

The 747 take off pic looks real 

where is the LiduRob shot, anyone know?

Brilliant basically and I cannot wait. I did have something in my Xbox insider thingy this morning, but it was an invitation to test some Bug game or something - oh well at least my Daughter will be happy.

In the last update thread there were some complaints about the clouds and some were saying how active sky / rex / p3d clouds were better (transparency?) or could end up being better than fs2020 clouds. I dont think so. Those cloud shots are stunning. There is nothing anywhere close to that available now or will be available from any third party vendor using whatever restricted sdk they use.

Absolutely amazing sky shots.

That is interesting isn't it?

I wonder why it did that?

It isn't photogrammetry in Bing so maybe it's thrown a little too much Autogen in to the mix.

Quite right.

The shadowing on the landscape is in line with the time of day the Bing Imagery was taken.

Something which should be addressed in the future one would hope.

Image below is Bing - borrowed from Shack95 over on the In-game v Satellite Thread.

If this is from Bing, that means the breaking waves are not animated, but static?

Umm. Do you remember in the Alicante shot - I thought there's two distinct wave behaviours going on there; one from the photogrammetry and one being generated by the sim. I wonder if we'll see that a lot.

See in the images below - in the sim we have a very distinct Water/ Land cutoff line - I guess this is where the odd waves are going to be happening.

The AI might have been fooled: Hey, the grass has a dark patch there, might be a building instead...

When I compare other buildings in that photo I notice that the sim does a good job on smaller buildings/houses but it has difficulty in finding the right type or scale for large buildings. Considering the AI has to do the whole world (which is BIG, as Asobo explained) it has done a good job and hopefully it will continue to improve even after release.

Just the fact that people are raising this as an issue or a thing to fix just shows how far the sims have come now 😃

They have set the bar very high, therefore I'm not impressed by these "brief" updates anymore. I'm glad that I did not wait for this till 2 am like before.

I'm wondering why none of these screenshots have ever contained any AI aircraft. We haven't heard a thing about the live traffic feature since the airports episode.

There is a building there in both OSM and Bing Maps. OSM:
