I know alot of us out there would like to see things come alive in the next versions of Flight Simulator with the addition of vehicle traffic on the roads and highways. This topic was hot in another forum and I suggested that perhaps it could be done with bump mapping, even if only at night. The idea was that if roads could be given the properties that bodies of water have and there was an underlying texture that could somehow cause the points of light in the road textures we have now to appear to move, even slightly......as the waves appear to move, then perhaps we might have some sign of traffic out of the roads. This is just one idea with what we have today. Does anyone have any others? Does anyone know how it's done in sims that already do? Let's hear suggestions!
