In my latest zoom climb altitude attempt, I reached an altitude of 180,000 ft. Once at maximum altitude, I switched to the free cam, and used it to boost my altitude by another 5000 ft or so. I then zoomed out to give a wide viewing angle. Finally i changed the time to noon, June 21st to give the best lighting possible. The resulting photos are so amazing that i believe they deserve their own, dedicated forum post. They were taken over Glasgow, Scotland, and as a result of the altitude, it is possible to see the entire United Kingdom and Republic Of Ireland, as well as the Faroe Islands, Norway, The Netherlands, Belgium and France.
Facing South, you can see England, Wales, Northern Ireland, The Republic Of Ireland, and The Isle Of Man with ease. The northern coastlines of France, Belgium and The Netherlands are just on the horizon.
Amazing pictures! Impressive altitude as well, highest I have gotten without bugs is 170,000ft. Really shows off the high quality scenery of Infinite Flight. These photos are so amazing that I highly suggest putting them here:
“Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you really are.”
FYI ; Concerning Ireland, it states that its official names are Éire and Ireland; its official name in English is Ireland; its country code is IE; and its former abbreviation was IRL. It also adds the following guidance: “NB: Do not use ‘Republic of Ireland’ nor ‘Irish Republic’.” Erin go bra! (Wiki)
No one has stated IF is better than desktop sims. IF is running on a platform which is limited in hardware to that of the PC platform so of course, some things aren’t as good. For a full fledged simulator, most would go to a PC sim but Infinite Flight serves a different purpose which is to bring flight simulation to the mobile market, where some people may not want the full experience or simply don’t have the hardware to do so.
