I really like the ground textures in XP9. I think they are the same resolution as FS9 but they are also just very good. I mean default FSX has a a higher resolution but just the textures themself aren't that appealing. Took off from Kaneohe Bay to check out default Oahu and it looks pretty good to me!
Now I really like the default clouds as well. Will have to uncheck the balloon button as there are just too many of those floating around.
I do like the nav/beacon/strobe lights on this plane but as you can see the landinglights look wrong. I don't know if that's a model related thing, let's hope so. Didn't check it yet on any other plane.
Also totally dig the realistic cloud shadows. Now I can fly and think like a bird and determine the relative wind conditions by looking at the cloud shadows moving over the ground surface. Oh and that water reflection is pretty neat too!
Ah more things to discover, will tune back in later!:friday:
