Looks completely amateurish.
Why would anybody pay $50 for that over MSFS?

It is a free open source flight sim that someone is trying capitalize on by adding the updates and other planes to.

come on guys... doesnt look that much worse than FSX to me...yes worse, FSX is rubbish. the plane looks nice and all but the ground texture is just horrible.

The long range textures in FSX are hard to beat ... but down low up close they are not that great .. at least the ground textures aren't.. Still that same old mottled MSFS look..
