Reddit user u/Ansenton on the r/flightsim group has, together with the community, compiled a list of most of the screenshots that currently exist for Microsoft Flight Simulator and put together a map of where all of those locations are in real life. It’s a fun project and worth a look!
100+ locations found and counting
One of the things that I’m really excited about with Microsoft Flight Simulator is the ability to explore real world locations in the simulator engine at levels of detail never possible before. Although titles like X-Plane and P3D with scenery packages such as those from Orbx have gone a long way towards replicating that experience, the new technologies on show with Flight Simulator take everything up another notch or two.
When you look at an image from the new Flight Simulator, its more than just a screenshot in the sense that it also contains a real world location. Finding out where those locations are and comparing them to the virtual version is no doubt going to be a fun part of the new sim – even if they don’t match perfectly.
Enter this map by u/Ansenton which shows the real world locations for most of the screenshots we’ve seen released so far.
Check out the map right here if you want to browse all of the locations. If you want to help with the search, a full conversation is ongoing on r/flightsim. Enjoy!
