Thread: Compare FSX to FS2020 Baron in NE Sandhills

  1. #1

    Default Compare FSX to FS2020 Baron in NE Sandhills

    The Baron compared in FSX and FS2020, both stock scenery. They are both flying over the Nebraska Sandhills, a huge field of grass covered sand dunes that stretch from north of I-80 almost to the South Dakota border, and about 100 miles east to west.

    Quite a difference. Much more detail in the 2020.

    That does look good, though my scenery looks much better than what you are showing for FSX. I assume you're online. What will it look like when Microsoft cuts the cord? And yes, of course they will when the cash flow doesn't justify it.

    I didn't know exactly where you were or at what altitude. But I went to the Sandhill region near I-80 in a Baron with P3D. These are two shots I took at about 4,000' with software I own and don't have to worry about being "updated" "modified" or turned off.

    Near a com tower.

    A day to two ago when I was on the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), they were discussing 2020 compared to other sims for at home practice flying. AOPA has reservations about reccommending 2020 for practice flying by actual pilots. They state in comparison to other software, 2020 leaves out many communications towers and other structures that you might "hit" throughout the US at least.

    I was up at 17,500'. I don't use it to practice actual flight. At this point, it is a way to see the world. I lived up near the Sandhills about 15 years ago.

    My excitement of going to MSFS seems to dwindle more and more seeing people’s thoughts about it

    Here is the same area in P3Dv3 using photo real scenery. If you want real you need to use FSEarth Tiles, it is as simple as that. FSET works with FSX, P3D and Xplane.



    I don't fly anywhere now in the world without download the flight path first, it is awesome flying.

    Better is the enemy of good enough.......is it an aviation simulator, or a scenery simulator?

    I took my plane up to 9000 feet and turned south and found these hills. I am not sure what the sandhills look like but if I am in the correct area, this might be what you are looking for.

    No, I think that is the Wildcat Hills. The sandhills are a vast field of grass covered sand dunes. They stretch from about Broken Bow to almost Alliance, and from just north of I-80 to almost South Dakota. When driving across them (about 100 miles), it is almost like being at sea on very rough water.
    This is what they look like from about 6 feet up.
