    Outerra

    Do you guys know this? It basically appears to be a "world engine", that generates the entire earth based on maps and even openstreet data:
    http://www.outerra.com/

    It has some planes and vehicles to explore the world and the result looks staggering



    Especially once you read the comment below:
    Bern was added in Outerra in the last update (http://forum.outerra.com/index.php?t...42555#msg42555).
    It's an early demo of the OpenStreetMap implementation in Outerra. OSM is a world database of roads and buildings locations, kind of like Gmaps but open and community driven. The buildings in this scene are from World2Xplane, a model pack created by TonyWob for Xplane and converted by Levi for Outerra (with authorization). It's a placeholder since Outerra doesn't have a lot of buildings yet.

    The only hand-made part of the scenery is the airport visible at the end, made by Uriah and me, it's not yet something the generator can handle. But everything else (roads + buildings position) is generated from OSM. The devs are still working on the importer, once it's ready there will be a global dataset release for the whole world

    Now that is pretty impressive!
    Never trust a man who when left alone in a room with a tea cosey, doesn't put it on his head
    If you are going to buy online why not do it and help B-F keep going at the same time!

    Yes,it supports oculus rift. And its not a glider sim, thats the cool thing. Its just a "world engine". You'll find other video's where they drive around in trucks, or fly jets. Like this one:


    I think there is an airbus 380 too.
