First I guess I owe an apology to our devs on whom I cast aspirations when I posted about upside down windmills in another thread. This is not a conspiracy theory.
A while back before AFS2 I was using Google Earth to fly local flights. The building in the CBD that I worked in was easily identifiable and the detail was great. It was no problem to identify my house etc. But, of course it was not really a Flight simulator. Although I am not running the new simulator I have kept an eye on the main forums and looked at the screenshots and I was a bit bemused to see that the Sydney Harbor Bridge was not modeled properly in it. I am thinking how is this possible when I can fly over my house and work place in an obscure city like Adelaide in Google Earth?
I know the new sim uses Bing rather than Google so was wondering if there is such a great difference between the two or whether a lot of object details are not transferred across to allow third party developers like ORBX the opportunity to fill in the spaces. (They have just released Sydney Cityscape scenery for the new sim).
