Microsoft Flight Simulator (v5.0)
Microsoft Flight Simulator (v5.0) was released after 4 years of the previous version. Microsoft Flight Simulator is a series of flight simulation where the user experiences flight simulation.
Every version came with some improvements. This version came with texture improvement. This was the first version, which used textures. The previous simulators were flat shaded. Using textures brings a realistic feeling to the user. The older versions included only 5 cities of the United States of America. Now, in this version, parts of Europe are also included.
The Aircraft Model was also upgraded. With the inclusion of textures, the weather system also became more realistic. It will make you feel like you are really flying at a height of 10,000ft above the sky. It's really hard to describe what it really feels like sitting at your home and still flying above 10,000ft in the sky.
When Microsoft Flight Simulator (v5.0) was released, newer and upgraded graphics cards and faster processor were available. This enhanced the simulation process and took it to a different level. The new graphics will make you feel like you are sitting in the cockpit.
The scenery in the simulation is also very different from the previous versions. Photorealistic ground scenes were added, buildings had lights and textures. The airport runways have realistic active lighting system. Microsoft Flight Simulator (v5.0) is not bound to 10,000x 10,000 square miles, like the previous Flight Simulator (v4.0). The journey extends to Europe and farther from Europe.
All of the improvements from the previous versions are included in the Microsoft Flight Simulator (v5.0) except one i.e. the Aircraft designer. It has been replaced with the Aircraft and Scenery Designer available separately from Microsoft.
