It's a photo...it's a photo of South East England.

it doesn't have nice effects like distance desaturation/blue, but given that it is essentially a photo, does that mean that you think SE England looks horrible?


ed: just to be clear, I'm not trying to claim FSX scenery is better than anything...It's not my cup of tea, but I do think "Horrible" is a strange word for a photo of the landscape.

This is a picture from reality, I was in the fw, so you can see that il2 is very close to the real thing. If you don't like the fw, tell me, I'll rent another plane and take the picture again.

How do you guys upload pics BTW?

What's bother me with il-2 1946 or COD is the cartoonish textures and colours, they reminds me Mario kart on the N64. I'm not speaking about luminosity, an bright sunny day is really "bright" but something is strange with the tone of the colours.

The first FSX screencap (with the aftermarket terrain) looks like someone who wasn't very skilled with photoshop took a picture of the ocean, and then just straight-up posted a photo of Kent over top of it.

The second one with the Fighter looks like someone took google earth screencaps and crudely drew a road over top of it, then used it as a texture for the old turn-based Combat Mission game and added stock houses and trees.

What FSX does do very well (with aftermarket packs) are cities and mountains. not so much the country and shores.

I don't own the other games so I'll have to go on what I see in the screenshots posted.

I think it's fair to say CoD is the clear winner, judging from what I see. The game, with the right lighting, can look absolutely breathtaking.

What kind of reasoning is that?
Hey look at this [blurry overcontrasted photo of a puppy] which has been made into a texture and put into a game, anyone who think it looks horrible must think puppies look horrible...

I'm gonna go make a game now, with only flat photographs as textures, as long as the motif doesn't look horrible there's no way the textures and the game can look horrible..

[/sarcasm]

Yes it looks horrible because it's a photo..
Compared to 3D environments and compared to real life, it looks horrible..
