In this topic propose post side-by-side comparsion images that describe YSFlight's aircrafts, ground objects and landscapes with their representations in other flight simulators & real world.
Try keep same camera direction for both views.

It's hard to compare YSFlight with any other modern flight sim. Having textures is easy mode for those games. Their 3d meshes are pretty crappy (most of the time) and what makes them good is the texture map, which is just a picture that's wrapped around the model.

Those sims also have other tricks to make their games look good. Ambient occlusion (making the lighting dynamic), anti aliasing, in engine (making lines look less fuzzy, various lens effects, color filters, motion blur, etc etc

If you take those things away (things that YS really doesn't have right now, or maybe never will) those modern games start looking crappy.

YSFlight's graphics are a roided out CAD drawing program. This isn't meant as criticism of Soji, it's amazing what he's done with such little resources and without relying on a common game engine such as unity, unigine, source etc.

I tried recreating this in YSFlight, but I got the positions of the fighter aircrafts all wrong

A repost of my old screenie, but it's relevant so...

Looking back I'm still surprised it turned out close, even though I wasn't putting that much effort into recreating this shot.

The only thing is to turn on anti aliasing
