Not sure if anyone knows about this: Marco's Blog: Google Earth Flight Simulator Flight Simulator Keyboard Controls - Google Earth User Guide It's pretty fun!

Along with the latest update comes a hidden feature of which I cannot seem to find any other information about. It's not in the release notes and a search on Google produces no results. Seems Google have done one of their unpublicised updates they're becoming well-known for.

To enter the flight simulator mode, press Ctrl + Alt + A (mac-cmdkey.gif + Option + A on the Mac). Once you have entered flight simulator mode for the first time, you can re-enter the mode by choosing Tools > Enter Flight Simulator. To leave flight simulator mode, click Exit Flight Simulator in the top right corner or press Ctrl + Alt + A (mac-cmdkey.gif + Option + A on the Mac).


No I don't know who did.

Really nice find, can't wait to try a city with 3d buildings.

So... FH2 devs use Google Earth to check places around North Africa? I've tried to visit Gazala et al with the normal view, and the ground (obviously) looks really different compared to vanilla.
