Some very beautiful pics has been posted so far. I particulary like: ''Zeros'', ''Mirror'', ''You are cleared for takeoff, runway two seven left'' and ''Ohau scenic''.

Keep the pics going!

Albertlau128 has a good question. Although I recommend that no one vote for himself as the chances of a tie increase.

Also, Venom you might want to edit the OP and remove the ''No discussion of screenshots here'' part. just sayin' :P

Fisch, YSFlight.com.

You could download a test version and do it that way, if there is still one there. I cannot remember.

By stock maps I'm sure the improved ones that Soji modified cont as stock. Just no third party add-ons.
