Greetings everyone. Here are a few videos demonstrating TOWER CAB in its current state. These are located on the TOWER CAB facebook page. (Be sure and click on "HD" for the best look). It was captured at 1600x1200 in a window.

Here is a daytime sequence https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=747767335279400

Here is an early morning sequence.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=747751255281008

Here is a little later in the morning further demonstrating the design..https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=747752011947599

The DarkBasic PRO Addons being used are:

DarkAI - aircraft movement
DarkClouds - The realtime weather system

All of the 3d models and scene were created using:

Google Earth
AC3D
AutoCAD 2008

I am making heavy use of sprites for all of the interface elements.

I love what you are doing with this...

issues...

Female Voice is not very clear...

A bit jerky, I do hope you made it usable on lower resolutions...

SERIOUS ISSUE, did you request permission to use the imaging from them?

Thanks for your feedback. This is far from final. The female voice is simply my current installed voice with the TTS engine of Microsoft. In the end, the voices will be prerecorded human voices that I will create and bundle with the game.

I'm not sure what you mean about jerky. There is an issue with DBPro when using text output that causes a delay in the program each time it is called. I am replacing all text commands with bitmapped fonts to paste the text onto images for the sprites.

What imaging are you referring to? If you talking about Google earth, the satellite imagery is in the domain which I have purchased. It's the same imagery that Google uses.
