The (glorious) future of scenery development is here?

Dear friends, take a look at this vid on YT…

Looks good, but it’s Google so we will never benefit from it in MSfs natively.

Exactly as Blueline308 said.

Typically, just mentioning them gets the thread closed. I understand why, direct competition (not in terms of flight sim, but other aspects that tie in).

Imagine the level of world detailing / modeling that could be achieved if they joined forces though?


I know its from Google but the same kind (or even better) of technology might be developed by the MSFS devs too.
I just wanted to share this, nothing more nothing less…

Looks like a pretty good advance on what we currently have. I wonder if MS will develop their own version in due course, though it seems a bit daft when it could be possible to collaborate and share resources and development if both parties had the will to do so.
