Most already know that the latest Flight Simulator simulates the entire Earth using textures and topographical data from Bing Maps. You’ll find three-dimensional recreations of the world’s features, like the terrain, trees, grass, buildings, and water, all generated by Microsoft Azure technology. A 212-story ultra skyscraper appeared in Melbourne, Australia due to incorrect Bing Maps data. Read more for a video and additional information.
Azure cloud renders the visuals, enhances visual fidelity, and simulates real-world data / effects, as well as calculate physics, but when a user makes a typo when entering on an open world map (OpenStreetMap), this crazy building is the result. In any case, the game is stunning nonetheless, as the world Azure creates is populated with animals, vehicles, and even water that flows realistically based on wind direction.
