The Challenge

What about reconstructing every single building on this planet? …and in addition detecting all vegetation and foliage of our planet.

Background

The new Microsoft Flightsimulator is offering the largest open-world in the history of video games by offering a 1:1 scale digital twin our our planet Earth. 

Our approach

With 10 years of experience of using automated content production for game worlds, we boldly accepted this massive challenge.

Now 10 years later we are utilizing the revolutionary technology from our sister-company Blackshark.ai, who are experts in the field of using Artificial Intelligence to automated tricky challenges like building footprint detection and reconstruction of entire buildings. 

St0ked

Did you know that our very first game title ‘St0ked Snowboarding’ featured 8 x 8km maps of iconic mountains which had been entirely procedurally generated.

Review

“Microsoft Flight Simulator is legitimately incredible. It’s difficult to fully describe how amazing it feels to jump into a plane and have the freedom to fly to and from literally any place in the entire world. […] The real-world mapping data, however, takes Microsoft Flight Simulator from being just an impressive game to the most awe-inspiring simulation I’ve ever experienced.
