Lars,The V5 always did like FU3. Fortunately my new 9700 Pro does too. :)I'm a little better fixed than you for free space. I have about 80GB currently free. Still I think I'll dump a few GB of unused space prior to installing the UK scenery... like Fly2k & Fly2.Great pics... thanks. :D

Hello Lars,yes, I total agree with you that this is a real improvement in enjoying FU3!The light-cloud models of your pics are really good and the quality of the voodoo 5 rendering is outstanding.The next bigger optical limitation is that we could replace some of that generic cloud textures in FU3. If this could be solved also we have such an high realism, that we are very close to my understanding of "reality feeling", also if we have different/changing weather.Tom: Yeah! 80GByte of free HDD space that

Stunning shots and scenery! Thanks for posting them, Lars.And as Ansgar said, I wish the clouds could be improved somehow to make them more random in shape; as they are now, they look so repetitive.

The photo-realistic terrain is great, especially when viewed from 2000 - 3000 feet. After all, that's about where the source photos where taken. The downside is that once you get close to the ground the features are harder to make out. But then, there's no reason to view buildings and orchards from the ground. What we need is enhancements of the airports and their immediate surroundings. This screenshot is from Gatwick and you may spot the runway behind the right wing. I'm going to install the latest Gatwick package and get a proper runway, as viewed from the ground. Anyway, the strength of photorealism is that the scenery is absolutely correct when viewed from above. I'll probably buy a map of southern England and use it for VFR. best regards,Hans PetterEarly morning over Cristian's Gatwick in Ansgar's Baron, by courtesy of a Voodoo 5 5500 video card:
