Features such as Mt Rainier (the 4th highest peak in the lower 48), Mt St Helens, the Columbia River, Puget Sound and Seattle (The Emerald City), the Cascade Mountain range are just some of the features that make this state a “gotta experience this scenery” state.

Features New AtmosCLEAR™ Image Clarity with PerfectCOLOR
Washington imagery is processed using our proprietary AtmosCLEAR™ and PerfectCOLOR image processing techniques. 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. PerfectCOLOR results in a near perfect replication of the real world color. The result from both processes is a crystal clear mathematically optimally contrasted image with near perfect color.
Fly Washington Both Day and Night
Washington 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.
Select Washington Hydrography
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.
