cool, very nice landscape.
Questions:
a) does it model realistic WWII combat?
b) which assortment of historically correct planes has it
c) what are the possibilities regarding ground targets?
d) does it allow online combat?
e) does it portray present landscape only, or can it show 1940s landscape?

To me, it looks flat and boring. The clouds look quite nice though.

Combat flight sims and photo sceneries don't go well together. Urban areas and objects such as airport buildings, hangars etc don't really go well with it either. And finally, we have no satellite photos of England and France circa 1939. So - apples and oranges really.... Though it does look nice in certain circumstances.

No debate to be had, in my view. I have an earlier version of the same company's 'UK Real Scenery' for FSX, and it's only ok.

As it's based on aerial photography, different sections have different colours according to the light conditions at the time the photo was taken. Just like Google Earth.
There are sharp, straight line divisions between the sections, again as in Google Earth.
There are no 3D trees, and very few 3D buildings. There are no dynamic shadows, so the shadows rarely match where the sun is according to the time of day.
I do enjoy the odd flight over Snowdonia, because for some reason Wales seems to have the best quality of photography. Some parts of the UK, and particularly Kent funnily enough philip, are absolutely awful.

Flying over the lakes in a Hawker Hunter during a Thunderstorm is also pretty cool. I'd post some screenshots, but I'm at work unfortunately!

I certainly wouldn't want this type of scenery in Cliffs of Dover, and I seem to remember Oleg saying that they wouldn't use photo scenery, possibly for the reasons above, although who's to say that '3rd party ' scenery might not become available at some future date for those that want it?

The CloD volcano map is far superior.





Or the Teletubbies wonderland.



I actually like this last pic (without the tubbies), only posted it because it's funny as hell...
