    They said there are no objects like in FSX. This is height mapping and photorealistic, well that's what I understand. It's a bit too technical for my brain (at my age)

    Maybe it's the photo's that will take up the space on HDD/SSD.
    FSX Rules!!
    What time's the next flight?

    I believe MS claims they mapped 9 petabytes which if I'm correct is 9000 1 TB HDs and your own substation set up by the electric company to run them and the HVACs to keep your house from melting. Actually I had been wondering what it would take to cashe NW Washington and the Inside Passage up through BC into Alaska. It's all very complex landscape. I have a 1.5 TB per month cap. I know what my computer roughly pulls though the wall by using an Internet Speedometer Program so I could fly some square mile samples and apply that to the total area.

    My experience is, that if you're offline, you never get bing or photogrammitry graphics, no matter how much you've cached.
