In Champaign, Illinois (a city southwest of Chicago), if you have scenery complexity set to Very Dense, you will find a small, flat red building. Fly in (actually, slew in, or have crash disabled) one of the entrances. You will see a wall with credits and a picture of the development team (and guess where you are - the subLOGIC main office).
In FS 98, the building is still there, but the wall inside is gone.

FS5 is the first version of the series to use textures. This allowed FS5 to achieve a much higher degree of realism than the previous flat-shaded simulators. This also made all add-on scenery and aircraft for the previous versions obsolete, as they would look out of place.
The bundled scenery was expanded (now including parts of Europe). Improvements were made to the included aircraft models, the weather system's realism and artificial intelligence. The coordinate system introduced in FS1 was revamped.
