New Scenery Product Line
MegaCITY USA 2005
Now Flight Sim Pilots Can Soar The Skies Above
Their Favorite US Cities
SOUTH CAROLINA, 30 December 2004. PC Aviator Inc, publisher of MegaScenery
scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator, today
announced the release of a new scenery product line titled MegaCITY USA 2005.
Where MegaScenery brings users large areas of photorealistic scenery using
satellite imagery at 5 meters per pixel, MegaCITY USA 2005 will have Flight
Simulator pilots soaring the skies above major US cities that have been
created from higher resolution aerial photographs at 1 and 2 foot per pixel
resolution. Consumers need to understand that Flight Simulator 2004 itself only
displays at a maximum resolution of 5 meters per pixel however since the source
images were taken at the higher resolution a lot of this detail is retained even
after resampling to 5 meters per pixel.
end result is much clearer and crisper urban landscapes for PC flying where a
lot of intricate detail is visible right down to the level of individual trees
on golf courses. Cities and their surrounding areas look just like they do in
real life as MegaCity scenery replaces the generic tiled scenery native to
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 with high resolution images of the actual
company plans to release a number of cities throughout 2005 with the first two
titles to be released before the end of January 2005. The first title will be
MegaCity San Francisco and the second has not yet been announced.
MegaCITY USA 2005 is created by Aerosoft Australia Pty Ltd, developers of
MegaScenery. As a result, MegaCITY will have all of the advanced and unique
features delivered in their MegaScenery titles including Night Scenery, high
resolution underlying mesh terrain, Winter Snow Scenery (where appropriate),
real water bodies and relocation and realignment of default Flight Simulator
MegaCITY titles will be available on CD-ROM and will be at a very reasonable
price of $17.95.
The first title - MegaCITY San Francisco will ship on 24 January 2005.
