Today third-party add-on developer and publisher Orbx had a few interesting treats for Microsoft Flight Simulator users.
First and foremost, the Landmarks Paris package has been released.
It’s currently available on Orbx’s own store for $11.57.
Below you can check out lots of screenshots from the accompanying press release and an official feature list.
- 15 high-detail custom landmarks including Notre Dame, Panthéon, The Centre Pompidou, École Militaire, and Église Saint-Sulpice
- 200 medium-detail custom landmarks, balancing quality and performance
- External night lighting for all default landmark objects, including Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre, Sacre Coeur, and Grand Palais
- Extensive terraforming across the coverage area, enhancing how our custom landmarks sit within the simulator’s terrain
- Flattening of the Seine River and correcting riverbank heights
- Custom orthoimagery patches across the city to cover the blurred-out military areas in the default simulator
Secondly, we get new screenshots of another relevant city, Singapore, which is “getting very close to release candidate testing.”
Last, but certainly not least, Orbx revealed a partnership with Cloudsurf Asia Simulations, resulting in the brand new Singapore Changi (WSSS) airport being made available on Orbx Central. The same will go for all future add-ons by the skilled Asian developer.
