I will "risk my skin" on this topic
As some others said, the city near the lake of the Eastern Alps 2.0 screenshot doesnt looks good, i agree. Its way blurred and i hope this can be fixed. Like the cities of Provence, i think most looks a bit better than this one.
I like the idea of having some parts of the scenery with photorealistic textures as long as its not too blurred.
Im not a fan of photorealism because as far as i can remember, it never looked real good in other sims. The pure artwork also doesnt looks good, i mean, it works better than a blurred photorealistic texture at least.
Still, i think that artwork well mixed with photorealistic areas and well added 3D objects is the way to go.
Somehow i think Provence is the best by now and version 2 of Eastern Alps is promising.
If this developes well, im sure someone will come out with a good mix for the original Slovenian scenery later

Im not a hater at all, what i can tell is that at least for my taste, i dont play condor to fly around and enjoy the view. Thats what i do in real life, with much more interesting things to see from upthere. For me, Condor has an objective: to improve crosscountry.
So i agree that for some of the real pilots, the "realism" of ground is not important. But we must remember that there are alot of ppl that doesnt fly in real life who wants a nice eyecandy area, something nice to see when "flying" Condor just for fun. And i believe there are real life pilots who also wants eyecandy sceneries here, who knows?
Resume: If photorealism cant be worked out and used in a real good way, i mean REAL GOOD. Then its better to have an pure artwork scenery.
