Earthsimulations Alderney FSX

Could this be the most realistic scenery addon ever created? I certainly think it could very well be! Just watch this video:

Currently in the Beta stage apparently, and if that's the case, just imagine what the finished product will look like! Can't wait for the other Channel Islands to be made too, as I live relatively close to them :D

I always think that photorealistic scenery looks great on videos and especially photos, but in the sim it always looks flat and not quite right. I think I'll pass on this one (it's for FSX anyway).

Yeah, same here, I've never liked photo scenery, but if you look in that video, most of the shots are taken from low altitude and there's no blurring you'd associate with photo scenery, and the resolution looks much higher than in other photorealistic scenery addons there are (I think it's 5m resolution, which is pretty damn high).

They have one incredible machine to be running it with like 50FPS.

Seems a bit pricey for one island... even if it is quality.

For me that's $39 for one island :(
