Laminar Research has dropped some interesting photographs of something that isn’t seen in current flight simulators – neighbourhoods.

The X-Plane developer showed off two photos on their Facebook page showcasing what they titled ‘neighbourhood auto-gen”. The photographs showed high-resolution photos of a typical neighbourhood setting, complete with houses, a park, and mailboxes at the end of the driveway – all from a street-level perspective.

While there is no firm release date for the 11.30 update, the developer has teased some other features that will be included, such as particle effects, updated physics (using research mode), upgraded prop-wash and down-wash effects, crew and passenger oxygen systems, anti-ice systems, and new autopilots.
