Looking good, when could we expect it to be released?
The orbital speed of the Earth around the Sun averages about 30 km/s or 18 mps (108,000 km/h or 67000 mph).
Which means we're travelling 97 times the speed of sound. And yet we can't feel the motion,
SubhanAllah

No FSX version as of yet, don't see the reason to give it a try. Water-masking would be needed where? lets wait and see if it comes up in the requirements.

Anyone doing the karachi city scenery yet? Would love to have one with photoreal ground and custom buildings.

Well maybe for anyone using FSX ???? The water-mask looks good with a photoreal Karachi City coming off the coast.... Tried importing some Google sketchup buildings into FSX using a program but got stuck :( . Karachi City scenery would be a dream come true.

Raihans I think it is a general trend taking place here which is why our hobby of Flight Sim appears to be dying. In the UK it is now very rare to find any of the Flight Sim Packs and add ons available from the usual "off the Shelf" Stores. Every thing has to be purchased via specialist on line suppliers. I understand it becomes even more difficult for Flight Simmers in Pakistan to make purchases and obtain Software. Personally I think that our hobby will continue for many Years but only the die hard people who know Flight Sim will continue along with a number of Virtual Airlines. We must be thankfull of Sites such as HOP that can continue to promote our wonderfull hobby. Young People will no doubt continue to be introduced to Flight Sim and in turn develope that first step into the World of Aviation.

Perry, electricity failure is the major part in decline to any business in Pakistan; hobbies are kept a side when people are unhappy with their lives. I wish more people from Pakistan join this hobby [-o<

Actually that is true for many PC video games. Video games for PC are now being purchased online. Whereas stores are concentrating selling more console based video games such as games for Xbox 360, and PC3.

Good to see Sarmad Come back with a bang. I am not sure about the ground scenery though, the runway and ground blend seem a little too noisy. I think I understand you are trying to depict the dust and dirt on tarmac, if that is true perhaps a different layer of randomized coloring might do the trick or perhaps we can wait to see your complete work ?

Good luck with your project, it looks pretty good so far :)
