A partially serious yet at the same time somewhat cheeky conversation of a moderate temperature.

As a flightsim developer (albeit mostly panels, sounds and flight dynamics) I know that in any sim there has to be compromises unless you want to make one so vast in computing terms as to be almost unuseable.

Most 3d surfaces are made of enough polygons to give (for example) Port and Starboard sides so seperate textures can be used for logos, names etc. to make them always appear correct. A flag is usually made of a single (zero width) polygon and textured once. Obviously it will on occasions look wrong but it is a small part and  it ain't usually worth making it a very slim 3d framework and using 2 texture sets.

BTW is it still correct to say that the UK Union Flag only becomes the Union Jack when flown from the jackstaff of one Her Majesty's Vessels? (Picky I know but similar to the way most people still refer to wing mirrors on cars when nearly all are now door mirrors).

The case of Union flag versus Union jack has been debated so much and has so many different defining terms that it's more or less a matter of choice or preference.

No, No No.   A Jack is flown on a Jackstaff and a flag on a flagpole - unless your name is Jack, of course.

Going right back to the start of this topic. ::) I was watching the last night of the promenade concerts at the Albert Hall yesterday evening, and the was a lady singer called Sarah Connelly, beautifully dressed as a Nelsonian admiral. She sang a British patriotic song wonderfully then drew her sword which had a Union Flag wrapped round it and when it unfurled it was UPSIDE DOWN. :doh: :doh: :thumbdown:
