Just Flight is pleased to announce the release of a great value collection of its VFR Real Scenery series for Flight Simulator X
VFR Real Scenery – The Collection is due to ship out from Just Flight on 19th December 2008. All four volumes of Just Flight's award-winning VFR Real Scenery for FSX are included in a great value package at a fantastic introductory price. Recommended price for VFR Real Scenery - The Collection is £59.99, but it is available now to pre-order exclusively from Just Flight's website ( www.justflight.com) at just £54.99 / €69.95 / $82.99.
VFR stands for 'Visual Flight Rules' - this is the way that pilots navigate when they aren't using complex instruments – they look at a map and then pinpoint landmarks on the ground to work out their position. Doing this in a flight simulator requires scenery that's exactly the same as the real landscape. VFR Real Scenery is an amazing piece of software that provides just that - fly over England and Wales in Flight Simulator X and sample the view you'd get from a real aircraft. You can see the real countryside from the air and pinpoint every key landmark. They're all featured – streets, buildings, rivers, lakes, reservoirs… and all at extremely high resolution and detail!
• VFR Real Scenery uses the very latest 25cm digital aerial images from GeoPerspectives displayed at 1m per pixel resolution in FSX.
• Includes 9.6m mesh terrain data which hugely improves the default relief.
• Individual night textures make flying after dark a real eye-opener and, thanks to painstaking editing, are incredibly accurate – you'll see realistic building lighting and roads are correctly lit so that Britain's country lanes don't look like a Las Vegas freeway!
• Water features are accurately rendered with Flight Simulator X water effects – you can land a seaplane in VFR Real Scenery.
Just Flight's Scott Phillips commented: "It's almost two years since we released the first volume in our VFR Real Scenery and we're extremely pleased with the success of the series so far. The reaction from press and public alike has been amazing and we're hoping that by putting the whole series together in a bespoke collection we can convert many more flight simmers to the VFR experience."
