      Just when i was about to buy MSFS ! This looks fabulous. I wonder how much PC power will be needed above what is presently used by XP-11.

      I will keep an eye on this, for me MSFS2020 lack of attention to scenery details lets it down and has not been fixed since the release! sure they have tinkered with it but still, off the top of my head, waterlines are still hit and miss scenery looks like crumpled up sweet wrapping paper in VFR roads that climb up mountains (Mount Fuji) clouds that still look cartoonish..... for me the magic is in the detail and MSFS fails in that department! and it's been out a year now!! ASOBO have created a Citroën Dyane I was exspecting a Citroën D5!!!!

      Excellent! Great gains. This along with ortho scenery either freeware or payware or as some have payware global scenery upgrades makes this a winner.

      I "hope" to see farm depiction upgraded, ie silos, farm houses, and general 3d character of farming areas which do cover vast areas on any sim.
