G’day all, we have recently received full global HD scenery which has been amazing and an awesome milestone for Infinite Flight. But that’s not the point of this request, this request is for global 4K scenery.
It will benefit us by enabling us to see ground details in a more detailed and true to life experience, which means a more realistic experience.
They would first start off with a small region to see how it effects devices, for example they could first implement it in a region the same size as the Sydney area but at a different location like Singapore and see how it goes. Then slowly increase the amount of 4K scenery so it doesn’t overwhelm devices and servers and make the game extremely laggy and slow.
I understand current technology won’t be able to handle it, but that’s why I stated that they should implement it slowly so technology has time to catch up. With the new 4K scenery it will make the app bigger in size like when we got full global HD scenery. Current satellite technology is growing at a fast rate with how far we have come over the past years it will only be a matter of time until 16K imagery is available as NASA has already gotten pictures of space in 8K.
With the new 4K scenery comes a new cost to Infinite Flight, it will most likely go up by 10, 15 dollars or even more, which I understand is a lot so Infinite Flight might change the prices so you can pay for just 4K scenery, 4K and HD scenery or just HD scenery.
Feel free to leave your thoughts below. If you want to see this amazing request come to reality make sure to vote for it up in the top left corner.
Please note that this request is not for updated topography. It may also take years for IF to implement it.
