FlightSoft's HONG KONG FSX LIVE product is unlike any product ever developed for Microsoft Flight Simulator whether for the new FSX version or any previous versions of the popular franchise. What is so different about our product is its use of DigitalGlobe QuickBird© satellite imagery which produces flight simulation scenery of unparalleled clarity rendering terrain imagery with extraordinary precision and even delivering the minute details of street level action. Such achievements are only possible when flight simulation scenery development incorporates the finest commercial quality satellite imagery in a PC based flight simulation product.
FlightSoft's HONG KONG FSX LIVE delivers the promise to provide the PC pilot with an extraordinary satellite imagery which covers seamlessly the most prominent areas of Hong Kong including the familiar and popular flight path into Kai Tak Airport. The entire Kowloon peninsula and most of Hong Kong Island are depicted with incredible detail, resolution and the unparalleled quality of DigitalGlobe's QuickBird© 60cm pan-sharpened ortho-rectified satellite imagery which will make you think you are actually flying in Hong Kong. Kai Tak International Airport is rendered in all its glory this icon of aviation history is re-opened and fully functional. In addition, the new Chep Lak Kok International Airport is also available for PC pilots who can't handle the pressure and excitement of landing at the brilliantly rendered Kai Tak International Airport. All the critical pilotage features such as the IGS, ILS and all pertinent navaids are rendered and active for PC pilots flying into Kai Tak Airport or the new Chep Lap Kok International Airport.
FlightSoft's historic product utilizes 255 square kilometers of DigitalGlobe QuickBird© satellite imagery. The satellite imagery not only provides 60cm pixel resolution but is also pan-sharpened so as to provide the best life-like images, ultra enhanced color vibrancy plus the detailed clarity that one normally associates with aerial photography.
The use of ortho-rectification techniques assure us of the utmost accuracy of geometrically corrected aerial images such that scale is uniform throughout and as such the satellite imagery elements have the same lack of distortion as encountered in a map. The benefits can be seen immediately by the accuracy of the satellite imagery rendering the entire urban fingerprint of diverse residential and commercial building structures in Hong Kong with impeccable clarity.
DigitalGlobe's QuickBird© satellite imagery sets itself apart from all other commercially available satellite images setting the stage for building a solid foundation for rendering a regionally focused scenery product whose scope covers seamlessly the entire Kowloon Peninsula, nearly the entire Hong Kong Island, some small additional islands and part of the vast New Territories. Altogether the final product results in dazzling ultra-high details never before seen in Flight Simulator. In the matter of the building structures, all textures are taken from high-detail photos of the actual buildings with a resolution of up to 10 centimeters. You can view such minute details as air conditioning outlets, the lettering on the buildings and even people comfortably seated in their living rooms watching television or working on their laptops. The latter phenomena can clearly be seen when looking inside the windows of the residential apartment buildings.
Imagine the view at night as you see the desktop computers through the skyscrapers' office windows and immerse yourself in a sea of brilliant city night lights. You can view all the prominent and unique architectural features of Hong Kong in brilliant color and experience even small details like the ever-busy star ferries, freighters, junk farms and passenger ferries sailing to the outlying islands all following their actual routes just like in real-life. Street level activity is depicted in unprecedented detail including such real life features as parked cars, minivans and smart cars. The parking lots are filled with the types of vehicles normally seen in the real-life residential and commercial business districts.
