Hi,

Just wondering what sort of ground detail there is in FB before I go buy it. I've seen pics from high up looking down, but whats the ground look like a few meters from the ground? Ugly textures(CFS1/novalogic F-22?)?

Does it compare to JointStikeFighter? Are there individual trees/riverbanks/buildings? How flat is the terrain down low?

I've read that there is some sort of dual/transparent layer that is used to give a sensation of speed - what does this look like?

Sorry for so many questions - Just wondered what it looks like close up since low level flying is so important in WW1/2.Could anyone post some Pics?

Thanks.

no worries.
i found out the hard way that flying low over a snowfield leads you to misjudge altitude /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

That screenshot above was from before the patch, probably
looks even better on that map now.

There is enough detail in the sim to keep me amused for a very
long time. Even the running men have treads on the soles of
their boots!
