The User Interface
Microsoft Flight Simulator is arguably one of the most anticipated flight simulators released to date. It is ground-breaking in terms of design, sporting a new cutting-edge graphics engine while streaming satellite data from Bing Maps to bring us almost a true-to-life representation of the planet. Moreover, its developer Asobo Studio has entered into partnerships with several specialist data providers to process the vast amount of information that can be streamed to the simulator.
Consequently, the virtual world is populated with 3D objects generated by artificial intelligence, real-time air traffic and weather that matches current meteorological conditions. The level of cutting-edge technologies and data processing used in the new simulator is simply astonishing.
