Yes, yes it is. Makua according to your map. Right around the corner from Dillingham airfield where I took off from.

The resolution was 1600x1200, reduced to 60%, or 960. The main things is the camera zoom, which is zoomed all the way out in the Oahu island pic. In the SR-71 pic it is also a wide zoom, with the camera positioned fairly close to the aricraft. Of course I'm using 1m per pixel photo scenery too. It doesn't look quite that good during normal flight as I use a normal zoom level.

Here's one at 100% resolution.

can u take some with bloom? uve said it drops performance by 50% so id be curious to see its effect. its also odd that a game thats so non reliant on gpu power could be hit so hard by bloom, cant imagine bloom hitting the cpu.

note - im not questioning your claims, i know this games performance is upside down.

Im not sure why your getting a 50% hit with bloom enabled but I suspect that the CPU does have something to do with it. I have an E6600@3.4ghz myself and when I enable bloom I lose only roughly 7-8fps so when you figure you and I both have an 8800GTX it has to be the CPU that is causing the hit.

My G0 Q6600 is due to arrive this coming tuesday, I cant wait to see what this bad boy does with Flight Sim X

There is actually much more to it then that. What he showed is only one of the many improvements that bloom offers in Flight Sim X. There are some locations such as when the sun is setting over the water....it looks spectacular and doesnt look nearly as good without bloom enabled in the same setting.
