<FSX - 10 pics > My April's screenshots: Water and Waves

Recommended Posts


And yes, it's FSX default (SP1 + SP2). No addons (besides the sceneries and 3 aircrafts), shaders or paint / photoshop used 🙂

To make this picture series complete, a classic sunset with a classic airplane is still missing.


Stay sane in these hard days, so flightsimming is one of the best things you can do . . .

Such screenshots that I wanted to go swimming. Unfortunately, there is only a river and a lake nearby :)

Incredible detail. I had to wait until P3Dv4 came out until i managed to get such detail. Never managed this in FSX, simply superb.

Thank you very much for your compliments and nice words! 🙂

@Pavel1971 😉   🙂 yeah, photoreal sceneries are very impressive.
When it's very hot in the summer I like to fly in the Swiss Alps with Aerofly FS (I only have FS1). To watch these snow covered mountains really cools down 🙂

@JarredP  Yes, many P3D simmers remember their flightsim experiences with FSX on a ten years old PC and compare this with their P3Dv4 on an actual high tech PC (which you need to run P3Dv4 / v5). So they are very astonished how well FSX can look with good photorealistic sceneries. Not only that you can find your house in the sim, you can even count your sheep:


And you can even see the lines on a soccer field:



I can't remember ever seeing this high level of detail in P3D with photoreal sceneries.
(Maybe I did, but thought it was FSX or Aerofly FS1 / FS2)


I'm running FSX (SP1 + SP2) on a 5 years old middle class PC (gaming notebook) and I'm very satisfied with the results.
Great thanks to every member of former ACES game studio!

Ooops, the sunset picture with the yellow Piper Cub looks like as if FSX could not reflect the sunlight on the water surface.
Of course it can:


P.S.: For those who want to compare with their own flightsim (to optimize the settings, to see if your hardware is good enough, if you have a good photoreal scenery) or for those who just want to enjoy let me give you the links to my former threads with photoreal landscape sceneries:

March 2020: Paris, the city of love and romance  

February 2020: A dozen of my best screenshots in 2019

January 2020: Maule Orion over photoreal island

December 2019: Iconic A340 over photoreal Austria

November 2019: In the East of Dallas, Texas (photoreal)

October 2019: Austria photoreal

August 2019: 10 years VFR Germany - Happy Birthday!

August 2019: Low and slow over Southern California (photoreal)

May 2019: Skiing in summer (photoreal)

May 2019: Rhône Valley nearby Lyon (photoreal)


If you are new to the hobby: why not give it a start with FSX? Just to see if you like flightsimming 🙂
You don't need a very expensive hardware and can give it a try without spending too much money for the first beginnings.
My opinion: better to invest in aircraft addons and photoreal sceneries than in extraordinary expensive hardware 🙂
And don't let you talk into o..x landclass sceneries as basic sceneries!
