Colorado is over 104,093 square miles in size and has 272 airports. You’ll see everything that you see in Colorado in real life in the scenery.
Colorado is a visually spectacular and fun place to fly with Rocky Mountain terrain with towering mountain peaks above 14,000 feet. Average elevation of Colorado is 6,800 feet, higher than any other state. This kind of terrain is where MegaSceneryEarth V3’s high res graphics really shine. You’ll be truly stunned by the scenery of Colorado.
Features New AtmosCLEAR™ Image Clarity
Colorado imagery is processed using our proprietary AtmosCLEAR™ image processing. AtmosCLEAR™ is a post production image processing technique that simulates the image being photographed in a vacuum to eliminate all atmospheric haze and artifact. It’s clear of atmosphere. The result is a crystal clear mathematically optimally contrasted image.
Fly Colorado Both Day and Night
Colorado blends seamlessly with FSX and Prepar3D night scenery so that dawn and dusk feature a blend of aerial imagery and night lighting while the scenery transitions to full day or full night where all default FSX night scenery displays.
Complete Colorado Hydrography
Colorado also features Flight Simulator water effects on all lakes, ponds and reservoirs greater than 3 acres from the national hydrographic database. If the water body is greater than 5 sq km, then its shorelines are hand etched pixel by pixel for highly accurate shorelines. Wide rivers also have hand etched shorelines and banks. The raw photographic water body is left untouched with the result being an authentic variety of different water colors that highlight specific properties e.g. mineral lakes whose color is maintained. Where possible water surface artifact is removed from the image. For users who like to see the water bodies as they are, then simply turn off the simulator water effects and you will see the native aerial images of the water bodies as you fly. Specific characteristics of narrower rivers require that we do not apply water effect to narrow rivers and creeks for a better scenery result.
