Just Flight have teamed up with Pilot’s to bring UK flight simmers the biggest flight sim add-on ever released.

Label: Just Flight

Developer: Pilots

Genre Flight Simulation

Release Out Now

SRP £34.99

If you are looking to make your Flight Simulator 2004/2002 experience a more dramatic affair, then this is the only product that delivers a total world-wide upgrade! Three DVD-ROMs provide new mesh terrain data sourced directly from NASA's Space Shuttle missions.

Further, while other terrain mesh products stop at 60°N/56°S (the limit of the Space Shuttle survey), FS Global 2005 also provides improved terrain data for the areas north and south of these latitudes!

So just what difference can you expect?

While the standard scenery in your Flight Simulator world is rendered with elevation points a massive 1.2km apart, FS Global 2005 provides new 'mesh terrain' with points only 76m apart - that's 16 times more detail, no matter where you fly! No longer will your favourite areas appear a poor representation of real-life - now mountains soar as they should and valleys plunge. Even coastlines and rolling hills will be more lifelike making everyflight, wherever you are in the world, a genuine delight.

VFR or IFR - every flight will be a new experience...

With the upgraded world available - you'll want to jump back and fly VFR and discover the beauty of the virtual world in ever changing shapes and contours during hundreds of hours of exploration flights - be it the Altai Range in Mongolia, some remote peak in Afghanistan - or some place in your own backyard. Or if you prefer IFR flying, you will see breathtakingly real looking landscape en-route.

Double Rendering - a Flight Simulator first!

Pilot's patented "Double Render"** technology not provides fablulous scenery when flying up close, but also for the first time distant views will be greatly enhanced - all without any loss of performace or frame rates! While other terrain upgrades only upgrade the 'near' views in flight, FS Global is the only product to provide improvements in far views as well!

Improvements out of the box and continual updates for FREE!

FS Global 2005 is the only product to disable conflicting meshes by default upon installation - which considerably improves frame rates. Plus with Pilot's commitment to ongoing updates and upgrades, you will find your FS Global world only gets better with time!

NASA technology for Flight Simulator

This scenery is based on Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data. In February 2000 a radar interferometery device installed in Space Shuttle Endeavour obtained elevation data on a near global scale to generate the most complete high resolution digital topographic database of Earth. We used this data topped off with other high quality databases to conceive this most complete scenery product for Flight Simulator.
