Looks nice, the overall lighting and atmosphere looks great.

Nitpick mode: Some water spay from the jet blast and tyres during takeoff would have been nice to see. 😅

More nitpicks:

The front wheels look to be floating above the ground as it taxis to its parking spot and;

The cabin seat textures are mirrored. They need to shift the UVs around a little.

Overall looks pretty decent.  Hope the FMS works at least for basic LNAV/VNAV.  I don't need everything functioning but basic operations should work.  I'll definitely be buying XP12.

Concur. The puddle reflections could use some minor tweaks. Another example: the very sharp reflections in the water off in the distant tarmac could use some blurring.

I bet the particle system could be applied here?

 

Even smaller nitpick: using the word "Limitations" to describe the Citation X?!? :)  EDIT: I'm betting this is a function of multi-lingual video editors.

Looks quite nice, i liked the reflections.

Clouds looks a bit low quality, i assume for performance reasons. Same happened initially with other sims offering noise generated clouds.

Noticed the floating feeling too, hopefully they'll fix it later on.

Wow, that airport has some seriously bad drainage 😁

It looks great though. Maybe needs some better AA though. I'm hoping the 4000 series GPU does it justice when it's released.

Yeah my main point of worry for XP12 is subpar AA. Hope we're not stuck with the underwhelming options present in XP11 and wonder if they finally introduce a temporal AA option, which is def. the way to go for a flight sim.

Indeed, I'd be very disappointed if we don't see a TAA option.

Yes, but it had some bugs of its own in 11. Hope those will be fixed for 12.
