What's the secret to FS Elemental? All textures were developed to work synergistically WITH each other, with the implementation of newer technology and techniques. Sky colors change with the seasons accordingly and cloud formations are beautifully rendered with stunning lifelike realism. The sun actually appears brighter the more it's focused upon. At dawn and dusk, land masses and cloudscapes are blanketed by beautiful matching colors and the bottom of cloud formations appear darker as the sky darkens, and lightens accordingly in brighter atmospheric conditions.
With the advent of Flight Simulator X, we see no better time than now to push the envelope in flight simulator related addons! FS Elemental is comprised of flight sim enthusiasts & developers, all who thoroughly understand the inner workings of the Microsoft Simulator franchise. We have been making Microsoft software and flight simulator add-ons for a combined 18 years and FS Elemental is a culmination of the talent accumulated over this time.
