On top of what Greg says, if you remain in a particular area, the detail will improve as the app captures data, no matter how slow your connection. MS have stated that a 10mb connection should be good enough for full detail. I have my doubts about that, but it should be within the capabilities of any fibre connection.

Indeed so, as I usually fly in the UK my 220mbps broadband should be able to download the data required. Once cached there shouldn't be a problem..

If that speed can't cope then there are an awful lot of people that are going to be disappointed.

Two areas I will be looking forward to seeing is Key West, as the FS9 scenery is abysmal there, and the MAIW Airfield, as I do most of my testing in that area.

I was thinking that it would be really user friendly if they had an option so that the local cache could be set to either your local area of choice or automatically to the area of your current startup location.

This video gives some idea of the realtime raytracing available under the DX12 Ultimate API, which I imagine FS20 will exploit. The dynamic lighting, reflections etc are quite stunning. The music, however, may not be to your taste (but I quite liked it!).

Episode 7: Multiplayer. Not sure this has anything for us, but some info about real-world traffic, and AI injection.

They do seem to have done a good job with multiplayer.
