Flight simulation breaktrough. X-plane 10 with presented ultra high quality scenery [0.1 m/px] becomes useful also in very low VFR flights (especially for helicopter pilots practising their routes over cities).
3D buildings and trees were generated basing on OpenStreetMap data by osm2xp program. Roads and railroad tracks were generated analogically by XPOSM. Every 3D scenery of polish airports is a product designed for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and converted with Fs2xplane (and additionaly with overlayEditor and WED).
I used my own program which improves legibility of scenery textures (contrast and color): http://jm.iq.pl/graf/cmp.jpg
The video is recorded in a replay mode "every frame capture" 30FPS/HDR/4xFSAA. Smooth frame rate in such configuration requires the latest generation of 3D Nvidia card.
Polish cities presented in the movie: Warsaw, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Lodz, Bydgoszcz.
