Flightgear after long

Its after quite a quiet period that I tried Flightgear (except once while checking the GeForce muscle when I got the new squarehead). So much has changed; Lot to unlearn and learn about the data file(s) (which has grown to 84 MB from the ~30 MB a couple of years ago). Things I noticed are:

  • Shadows are present.
  • I grepped for VOBG in the airport file; No meridians (the file is normalized, I guess).
  • The setting and rising sun still sux (I guess I’ve got some ideas on that one).

I also visited X-Plane site and sorta felt sorry about it. They have beautiful rendering of the landscape. An enviable amount of detail in the terrain texture (*sob* when would I see that in Flightgear). Browsing through the flight-sim pages I also reached LO-MAC site. Another drool piece for me (*sigh* when would somebody make a combat-sim out of flightgear engine).

Watched Shawshank Redemption after its being in the movie hit list for (quite) some time. Moderately tickling, I would say. I had too much of an anticipation getting it (mostly from my friends’ comments).
