    Well done! Are those nice shots edited or are they a direct screen shot from the sim?

    Thanks David. The shots are direct from the sim in real time. To be honest I'm not thrilled by the FS2020 night ground textures around the airport.

    Nice shots. But on a closer look I see what you mean about the textures. Overall, very nice.

    If only 2020 would let me use three separate monitors, I'd "fly" it a lot more than I have. If I had realized 2020 lost the multi-monitor function FS9, FSX, P3D has had for years, I'd have never bought it. So I really don't have enough 2020 experience for an intelligent comment as to whether that is their norm throughout.

    I'm about ready to try P3d's V4.5 and see how it looks. I've been much more happy with their older products than my impressions of 2020. That 3 monitor 3D look I've had for years is pretty essential to my satisfaction.

    Well those night shots without editing are fantastic! When I do night shots in FSX I always have to do a fade correction so I can see the airplane better.

    Really enjoyed this one! Would you mind telling us more about what you mean on the ground textures?

    If you take a look at the last two shots the point and road traffic lighting is kind of fuzzy and blurred - maybe I should have said lights rather than texture. I'd just like to see a little sharper definition on the lights especially considering that the airplane was only at about 5000 feet here.

    Looks like things may be getting improved in the FS2020 night lighting world. Check out this shot from today's Update 5
