Watch the Flight Simulator announcement trailer! They're apparently using satellite imagery, and indeed it almost looks life-like:

@fribbledom incredible! I remember playing this game in CGA at 10 fps...

@fribbledom This is seriously impressive. I'm no flight sim guy, but it looks amazing.

@fribbledom #Flightgear could do that with an OSGEarth custom build by using Google Earth imagery, too, years ago.

@fribbledom The degree to which I want this back end for a driving/racing game is positively unseemly.

I wish we could play as the control tower with voice recognition 😁
