Hurricane Laura has attracted Flight Simulator players and it looks amazing.
Hurricane Laura is prowling on the East Coast of the United States at the time these words are written. Players from all over the world who would like to see it from the air with their own eyes, and for various reasons cannot do it (one of them is the distance between them, for example), decided to use the benefits of Microsoft Flight Simulator for this purpose. It so happens that the work of the Asobo Studio team can simulate real weather conditions. Laura’s blow on the East Coast was a kind of a baptism of fire for him and it looks like the developers did a great job.
Let’s start with that the hurricane does indeed come into play and looks really great. Below you will find screenshots from the Reddit forum, which show the beauty of this phenomenon just before sunset, in the so-called “golden hour”.
Real pilots also decided to see this hurricane up close. How the flight near Laura looks like is well illustrated by the following video recorded on board the WP-3D Orion plane:
However, what is most interesting some players managed to find this flight in the game thanks to its ability to simulate real air traffic; unfortunately, the picture below (also from the Reddit forum) does not look as spectacular as the previous two.
It is also worth adding that there are a lot of people who want to see Laura in Microsoft Flight Simulator, which is well represented by the map available in the game.
Finally – a short video showing the virtual version of Laura in action. Its author also made some impressive screenshots that you can find at this address.
Let us also remind you that Microsoft Flight Simulator appeared on personal computers on August 18; on the Vistula, it has a cinematic location. The title debuted in the company of delightful reviews crowned with high ratings. The work of the Asobo Studio team is also going to the Xbox One.
