Coming soon from Flight One Software is USA Roads, an add-on for FS2004 that uses proprietary mapping data to add nearly every road in the continental USA to flightsim scenery. For more details, click on Read More.

Flight One Software, in cooperation with Scenery Solutions, has announced the upcoming and exciting new product: USA Roads for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Designed to raise Flight Simulator 2004 to new heights of realism, USA Roads for Microsoft Flight Simulator will bring your flying experience alive with nearly every road in the continental USA, from surface streets in your neighborhood, to the major roads, highways, and more. Interchanges, ramps, access roads, are all included. The entire continental United States is covered in super high detail, with millions of miles of roads.

The product uses precision proprietary mapping data to provide highly accurate road layouts. Divided roadways and highways are displayed in their correct positioning for both sides, not just as a single line using a divided road texture. You will see roads the way they are supposed to look! This is invaluable for those VFR flights where you need road and highway landmarks to help you navigate. Now you can take off low and slow in the Piper Cub from the tip of Florida, across the central plains, up through the northwest mountain regions, and all the way to Seattle, with just USA Roads and a road map.

USA Roads have been carefully optimized for FS2004 to have little impact on performance, and to blend in nicely with existing scenery textures, land class, and terrain mesh. USA Roads include their own texture set. New daytime textures brighten up concrete roadways and blend in with the urban land class textures. New night textures provide more accurate looking street-lighting effects.

Initial product release will be in downloadable format and will require a broadband connection because of size. The CD ROM version will be available shortly after the download version is released. Product release is expected to be in mid June with tentative pricing set to $29.95 for the download version, and $34.95 for the CD ROM version.
