Flight Simulator according to ORBX :
To create an Ultra Realistic simulator using P3D, the principle is the following one: You add the Mesh (That is the height of all the grounds of your simulator). You add the Landscape, than you add the textures (trees, flowers…) and the Vectors (Roads, forests, cities) based on the OSM (Open Street Map: These are the Cartographic data of the world). The combination of all this creates the whole World where you Fly.
It is then necessary to add the Sky and Clouds textures …REX (REX 4 Texture Direct & REX Skyforce 3D) proposes wonderful textures to make your Simulator even more realistic. TOGA Project with its software ENVTEX also propose beautiful textures.
To arrive at such a level of detail you’re going to use your credit card …
You can also improve the Rendering of your sim using better Contrast, Color… You will need PTA or ENVSHADE. These softwares will change the general aspect of your Sim using some Custom files (the Presets) Created by the Community, by you or by Editors (as REX…)….

When the ATC gets involved in…
- IVAO : The most popular. Very effective in Europe because there are many Air Traffic Controllers.
- VATSIM : More effective in the United States
- PilotEdge : Have to pay to use it, very realistic, but only in South California.
