Over the last three months I’ve been drooling over some of the screenshots and videos from Take On Helicopters, X-Plane 10, Flight, Cliffs of Dover and Rise of Flight (to name a few). While these flight simulators look better than any flight simulator before them in history, they look dated compared to most state of the art PC games. In the future that will hopefully change. New 3D mapping and texturing technology is already here. The question is, will it ever be incorporated into desktop simulator?
