    Impressive visual software

    Hello all,
    recently I saw a link in the 727 throttle thread to another website that I followed. On that website I saw the following video:

    http://www.northernflightsim.com/video.shtml

    And to say the least was really impressed with the graphics. Of course the curved screen using three projectors is also cool, but out of my league for now.
    So I wanted to ask, what software do I have to use to get the same sort of visual effects that I see in the video. More specifically I am talking about the airport and not the city, water etc. The detail on the runway with skid marks and everythings is truly amazing. Is this add-on airports that create such realistic visuals or is there something else I am missing? Any chance hardware could be a limiting factor?
    I am using FS9 if it makes any difference.
    Thanks and look forward to getting some responses.

    Michal

    Sol7 (ImmersaView) with multiple projectors + TH2Go can provide those results.

    Yes that video was taken by our very own genius philb737 . Check out his cockpit pictures. He has shown me video of his cockpit since the last installment here and you wouldnt believe some of the things he has implemented. I dont know hoe he manages to do all of it, he has a wife , a dog and runs like 4 restaurants!!!, and a request for a tassy devil!!!... (Ill do my best!!)

    Yes that video was taken using SOL7 from immersaview

    Thanks for the replies. Although the projectors and the sol7 software looks great, I am actually just looking for software to improve the looks of the airport, runways etc. When I saw the above posted video, the graphics almost convince you that you are looking out the cockpit of an actual plane. When I run my FS9, it is paifully clear that it is just a computer rendition of the airport I am visiting. I would like to make the visuals as realistic as possible and am looking for the correct software to do so.
    Regards.

    Just to help me understand, you are looking for something to improve the graphics/ visuals and you do not intend to use a projector? Is this correct?

    Yes, this was my original intention with the post. Maybe sometime in the future I will consider the implement projectors, but for now I am just looking for add-on software to help improve the graphics.
    Thanks

    Ah ok,

    I am sure you are aware that one of the easiest way is to purchase add-on sceneries these would make the surrounding more realistic and you will find the landscape more filled up with Trees, Buildings, Roads, etc. The other add-on which are available to improve visual impact or let us say improve realism are:

    Airport Enchancement Services - Aerosoft, this is indeed quite an amazing software brings the airport alive, with catering services, refuelling trucks, cleaning services, etc etc

    Real World Environment - Improves the quality of the flight simulation experience with 3D Cloud, water, improvement in airport environment, real water environment, etc. I think the software is called REX2

    I am sure will find many more such add-on in FS shops like Simmarket, PCavaitor, etc.

    There is also a utility called nHancer, which is a freeware which lets you perform advanced settings of Graphics card, basically gives you a good control on your graphics card setting.

    Also, there one company called http://www.fs-gs.com/, This service is conducted through live chat and involves a detailed investigation of the hardware and software environment of the users machine. They investigate the problem and use hands on methods to enhance both the machine performance and the graphic software performance. On this level they also make recommendations to the user regarding hardware or software upgrades that may be necessary.

    I am sure with a combination of right software and hardware and with decent budget you can achieve good results.
    Regards
