Microsoft airplane game Flight Simulator has been upgraded to include every airport in world. This means gamers will have choice of over 37,000 airports to take off from and land at. upgrade has added over 13,000 new airports to previous version of the game, which included 24,000 airports. The game includes international hubs like New York's JFK and London Heathrow. It also includes tiny airports like rural, grassy landing strips and runways that are in middle of deserts or on the of mountains. The 37,000 airports in Flight Simulator have been manually designed to look like real airports. Designers used satellite images and Bing Maps to do this.
graphics are also much better in latest release of Flight Simulator. The designers put lot of work and effort into increasing level of detail you see. Gamers will see windsocks blowing in the wind and service vehicles driving around roads next to the runways. The markings on runways in the game are the same as those on real runways. Lead game designer Sven Mestas said: "To reach new level, we needed new approach. We decided to innovate by editing airports from real satellite pictures. This technique involves editing each airport manually. This means we paid particular attention to detail to bring every airport step closer to reality."
