Microsoft statement months ago: Every single raindrop is calculated physically.

First video, upper left corner, exactly the same raindrops appear again and again! 

Well, at least it looks good. But the statement seems fictitious. 

Like the Asobo statement from many months ago that there will be 2 million cities in the Simulator. Complete fiction.

One is 360p and another is 480p, the other three are 720p. You can download them from the links I've placed below the YouTube embedded videos for the full quality.

Keep in mind that those videos are captured by Alpha testers, and that the video resolution is unlikely the same as the rendering resolution. Capturing a video at 1080p or above is not a very easy task if they're using the CPU to encode while running the simulator as well.

Some screenshots, Alpha 5 in July and a one page flyer saying we are getting navdata with really no info on how it will work, just a bunch of corporate back patting. Yay. You'd think they would expand on the UI for it, if apps for Android and IOS to view charts like Navigraph currently utilize, if subscription based for nav data (likely) and cost, etc.... This updates really are equivalent to a roadside fruit stand, not a full on grocery store. Shame.

The new videos today, They actually look like Ortho4XP.

Imagine XP11 loaded with Ortho. Then imagine we could have really good AA and weather. Thats what to me, you're looking at in the videos. I noticed the waves were baked in.

Lol, relax people. The shots and videos you see are from various users with various capturing software and what you see is from ONE build, each build has had features added and removed. What you're seeing is far from what you'll see in the beta version let alone the retail version. I can't say much more because of the NDA but don't get worked up about missing details or things that don't look correct.

I hope that is particularly also true for the generic buildings at the default airport in the second video.

Why would you even mention this, If you are a tester you are just stirring things up by speculating.

How do you know what will be different later on?

All the videos are very tiny in size, and the creators have to cram as much as they can into such a small space, by using low resolution and massive compression.

If there were a size limit on uploaded videos, you would either have very short high res videos or longer low res ones.

You're asking me to go into specific details which I can't. Keep following the updates and you'll see a progression.

Exactly. While core nav data and basic charts might be included for free as part of the base sim, the “plus” might very well indicate that a fuller range of charts will be available as optional DLC, and if there is a subscription, it might be with NavBlue directly, not with Microsoft.

The plus is just the name given to the product that Navblue produces.

Interesting information. Based on the sizes of today's and previous videos, it appears there is a 5MB forum or website limit. This would also explain why we can't have longer videos. Too bad that newer codecs still can't be used for real-time capture...

Really amazing how some folks automatically think "post launch service" means it'll be a subscription lol
