To understand just what CIGI (Common Image Generator Interface) is you should take a look at the CIGI API User's Guide Overview section, http://cigi.sourceforge.net/manual/section_1.html Most high end simulators do not have everything running on a single machine the way FlightGear is currently implemented. The airplane model is run on one machine normally refered to as the host and the out the window visuals or scene graph program is run on another usually refered to as an Image Generator. CIGI is the interface between the 'host' and the 'image generator'. I hope this clears things up abit. I currently using CIGI for a PC Image Generator at work.
