The famous Microsoft video game that simulates flying around the world has impressive images that were shown by this designer.
The ingenuity of each person can vary according to the great or little level of imagination they may have. This, when creating, is also subject to the tools you have on hand. However, having a lot is not the equivalent of creating better, but it helps a lot. It is the case of a designer, who took the time to recreate the photographs of the wallpapers of macOS, with a video game of Microsoft.
His name is Matt Birchler, is a designer and writer for an American web portal. It seems that apart from his work, which he surely does from home, he spent many hours playing Microsoft Flight Simulator. Those hours were invested in a good work, recreating the most iconic landscapes of macOS.
As you must already know, Microsoft Flight Simulator is one of the oldest games that the technology giant has. It is a simple simulation of flying an airplane. His name explains it all. This development has gained so much resonance over the past decades that it has served as a digital practice for those taking flight classes.
So with the advancement of Microsoft’s operating systems, the company has improved its development. The flight area covers the entire world, with different types of detail. It depends a lot on the ranges that the satellites may have, to improve the images. It also has around 20 thousand airports around the planet.
Simulated version with Microsoft and original macOS
The portal The Verge made a comparison of both images, differentiating how the Apple wallpaper looks and those that were simulated by designer Matt Birchler. The left part of the image is the Birchler simulation. While the left is the original wallpaper. There are two landscapes, one of them is Yosemite and the other Big Sur.
