I have version 9, but grew VERY weary of seeing stock buildings that look like Best Buy department stores. I've got about ten malls withing a 15 mile radius from where I live. In X Plane 9 there were billions.... and each one had a Best Buy and Target.

The building would be blue with the yellow Best Buy splash on the front of the building. Target was orange with bulls-eye looking mark on it.

Weird.

I haven't looked at these yet. Thanks for calling them to our attention.

I haven't fired X Plane up in a few years. After a reformatting there's a few games I never reloaded. That was one.

Looking at these new previews, my interest is piqued, and I will more than likely buy the sim. While there was a lot to like in X Plane the auto gen wasn't one of them. Flying out of Boston wasn't a lot different than flying out of NYC. With the exception of the geographical differences they both looked similar. I never found an adequate 3rd party for either location.


I forgot the IKEA. Probably because there none around me.
