    Default Introducing simwestFOTOREAL

    simwestFOTOREAL started as a simple little project for myself to try and enhance photoreal scenery. After four years of development we thought it was time to show some development shots of what we got going. My goal was threefold: immersion, performance and enjoyment. To give typical photoreal scenery a “shot in the arm” sort of speak with 3D buildings, vegetation, night lighting, watermasking, color corrected imagery and even seasons where applicable. I think I have accomplished this but the only way to make sure is to let others try it.

    So I am seeking beta testers to try simwestFOTOREAL. We need all types of simmers with all types of platforms. So if you fly with P3Dv4, P3dv3, P3Dv2, P3D and/or FSX and FSX:SE and are interested in beta testing please send me an email at:

    ‘projects @ simwest . com’ (FYI - there are no spaces or in the email address).

    Please use ‘BetaTester’ for the Subject line.


    Living in San Diego, California, USA, I thought I would start here.

    Travel around 100+ miles north and you will hit the city of Los Angeles. Here's Hollywood with the city of Burbank in the background.

    Even small out-of-the-way places where you will most likely never see are modeled. I like to call this “Nowhere”. The idea is add a bit of exploring for those who fly GA low-n-slow.

    And for those who fly "tubeliners" we hope to add the thrill of immersion all around you as you make your approaches and take-offs such as here in the San Fernando Valley, which is north of Los Angeles.

    Hi Folks,

    What - did nobody see this ?

    That looks absolutely incredible !

    It also seems to include the entire southwest of the US down into Mexico... I gasped when I saw the recent pictures posted...

    This is Clutch - of “9 Dragons” fame for those if you been around for a while...

    NICE WORK - sir...

    Full Disclosure - I am in no way, shape, or form affiliated with this project - I simply noticed the gorgeous screenshots a few days ago and was duly impressed...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Folks,

    Glad someone noticed besides me - if l had more time in front of my sim - I’d volunteer as well - as it is now - it wouldn’t be fair to the developer...

    Anxious to see what becomes of this - it looks incredible...

    Regards,
    Scott
