Here’s what we’ll be getting:

  • More than 200 custom buildings and structures.
  • Detailed representation of the Port of Melbourne and adjacent industrial areas.
  • Helipads on several rooftops, as well as on floating platforms along the Yarra River.
  • Animated Hot Air Balloons north of the CBD, visible on mornings with clear weather.
  • Animated CBD Metro trains on the viaduct between Flinders and Southern Cross stations.
  • Animated racehorses on Moonee Valley and Flemington racecourse.
  • Many enhancements to the city and surrounding areas: improved vegetation and building placements, marinas, tall powerline towers, etc.
  • Precise placement of our custom landmarks within the simulator’s terrain and the city’s photogrammetry coverage.
  • Custom night lighting based on real-world photography
  • Fully compatible with World Update 7 Australia and meant to be used with it.

We stay with Orbx with the release of Boise Airport (KBOI) in Idaho, United States.

It’s currently available on Orbx Central for $12.04 including a 20% launch discount that will last another day.
