Users brining Microsoft games and Google mapping together

From the Google Earth blog:

Imagine running Microsoft Flight Simulator and Google Earth together. Imagine seeing your simulated plane, and other auto-generated planes, appear within the Google Earth. Turn on the roads layer, the airport layer, etc. and you can see all kinds of data associated with where you are flying that the Flight Simulator does not.

Well, this technology exists:

MyFsGoogleEarth is a small webserver that links Flight Simulator with Google Earth. It adds placemarks at aircraft's current position, at estimated position one minute ahead and for surrounding AI traffic. It can also provide a continuous "follow aircraft" view.

MyFsGoogleEarth ist ein kleiner Webserver, der den Flugsimulator mit Google Earth verbindet. Er fügt "Placemarks" für die aktuelle Flugzeugposition und AI-Verkehr hinzu und bietet zudem eine kontinuierlich aktualisierte Ansicht von der Flugzeugposition aus.
