    If you look near the bottm left of the pic, you'll see a pretty big cloud shadow.

    But serisouly I would like to know if FS2K4 would do that. It would add SO mcu to me erpsonally, a low and slow flyer.......

    I love that last picture--and I really, really look forward to the time when a flight simulator can reproduce that sort of scene. I can't help wondering what's being flown there though....

    On the cloud shadows, I think that was brought up in the simflight FS 2004 forum yesterday (they've been posting tons of screenshots there), and I believe they do cast shadows.

    Awesome!!!! Sounds, weird, but again, to me cloud shadows add so much to atmosphere, especially when all I fly in FS is ultralights and small GA's like DF's WONDERFUL Archer.

    I'm getting real excited now about 2K4!! Just hope my 2 ghz and 64mb GeForce 4 can handle it though :-lol

    Paul,

    Were you referring to me? The plane in those pics is a Quicksivler MX UL......despite it's looks, is VERY safe and VERY strong +6g -4g,,,,,,I routinely do aerobatics with her :-)

    Thanks. Yes, I got a real kick out of seeing a pair of feet dangling in the open air in that photo; when I was a teen I flew in open-cockpit gliders, but this is a whole different open air experience. One of these days I might have to try it.
