Moonshot Tutorial

Moonshot Tutorial

I think we all can agree on one thing when it comes to Infinite Flight and that’d be our experiences that we have when we’re enjoying this gorgeous flight sim. When global was first released back in October of 2017 folks were flying their favorite routes all across the world. From their home town to their dream vacation destination the world was literally in our hands.

Global then opened up new possibilities for unique and absolutely stunning photos of things that are out of this world… literally. The moon has captured a ton of attention to those that love Infinite Flight I personally have seen many wonderful photos. I created a short video which never really got its own tutorial topic and it appears some folks have started grasp how to take these breathtaking photos. I figured it’d be nice to give a few tips regarding how to take these beautiful photos for those who do not know how to take them or for those who look to improve their screenshot skills.

Helpful Tips:

  • Use solo mode. This will allow you to pause your flight and change the time and weather to get an optimum balance of light and moon visibility.

  • Use freecam to move the camera away from the aircraft. You’ll want to zoom in on the back ground while keeping the aircraft (foreground) still somewhat small. see video below

  • Climb to an altitude where ozone and atmospheric particles won’t affect the quality of your shot. I’ve found that FL290 is a good altitude. Going higher will likely improve your photo but keep in mind the position of the moon and where its located.

  • Using the Full Moon Calender located here, find the location and time that would give you the greatest possibility of seeing the moon. Knowing the phases of the moon, when and where it will be for the location that you’re trying to take the photo will be extremely helpful.

  • To get you started spawn at (PHNL) on October 06, 2017 and set the local time to 18:32 or 07:08. You will see the moon in daylight with a decent amount of the moon showing.
