Looks interesting - will have to keep an eye on that.

Here are some atmospheric shots, showing the new Horizon GenX night lighting, and some FEX clouds I created using the beta GUI...I was testing these at 2048x2048.

Great shots SJA06!
Living in the Alps must be awesome. I stumbled upon a really awesome valley one day, which is pictured below, and I just checked google maps to realized its the same valley Sion is in.

SJA06, that Horizon scenery is looking pretty darn good these days!

Damn, thats awesome!

Here's more info on Swiss Pro X.

http://www.flylogicsoftware.com

I guess its supposed to be 130 Euro, so its not so spendy for you guys. Its only 2m/20m though. I wish they did 1m textures but considering the price maybe that kind of data was out of the question.

Looking pretty good - I think they need us lot to do some decent screen shots for them they need a bit of atmosphere to give them some (atmospheric) perspective.

May well get this.

June looks to be a good month if you've got some money to spend. F-16, Swiss Pro X, Boeing 377....

...I should have read the manual. I didn't program any failures for this flight....

...How real does it get? Find out soon.

I recently started using GEX again, so here's some images of GEX combined with UTX and Xclass near Lake Oahe on the Missouri River . The RealAir Spitfire is the blue one, and the MkIa is by A2A Simulations. Even without bump maps the A2A version looks awesome, so much so that there's not even a need for them. I fly it as much as the one by RealAir, which says a lot. It's so elegant in the air, especially with some weight removed.

Here's a couple images of Chicago with GEX, UTX, and Natural World Trees, as well as one from FTX Gold.

I was getting around 40fps in the Chicago pics.

These REX preview images are pretty sweet.
