In earlier versions of IF there was an option to show terrain and elevation. This was helpful so you could see if mountains were ahead of you. This would really help night flights in unfamiliar areas where you may not know if mountains are present. Does anybody know why this was taken out? Thanks! (And im not able to post in the features category so i put this here)
The terrain map was removed from the simulator as it was causing performance issues with global.
You can vote for it here though, Terrain map in the HUD view
thanks! i just voted
