Here’s another fun game using the Google Earth plug-in, based heavily off of the Monster Milktruck demo. It has quite a few limitations (the biggest being no altitude adjustment), but it’s another step in the right direction.
The plane simply hugs the ground, and it runs in a pretty small window. The small window is an attempt to use less bandwidth. Since the plane can’t stop (or even slow down), the imagery has a hard time keeping up. The small window helps with that a little bit.
Despite the shortcomings, it’s a fun little app and it has me even more excited about the possibilities for the future.
