Had a trip last week to Colorado so here’s some comparisons I made.

Edit: I think it’s fantastic to be able to find these locations in MSFS with recognizable terrains and features but at the same time, I hope MSFS could further improve its ground details and clouds

Ok. Need to go over VR settings with you. I think I’m not doing something correctly.

@Fmgc320 Anytime my friend. Oh, and check your email if you would be so kind…

I thought I’d try to find the awesome B&B we stayed at in the town of Battice, north of the track. Well it didn’t take long to find it.
