Here are some pics we have taken in FS and which are showing that the FS2002 world is fine enough to render some famed locations, worlwide! And those are just some among much others you can find in FS2002. Some more fine rendering from our pictures are just due to that we added some satisfiedware, FS2004-designed textures available on the Internet. They work fine for FS2002 too, albeit with some tweaking for some of those. Enjoy the tour, with 4 more series to come!
