Orbx is proud to return to our roots with our very first Australian product for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Cityscape Sydney! We know that many of you have been keenly awaiting news of our first home

For all those members that said MS2020 would be the death of Orbx , you better put a hold on their  obituary ........... 

Interesting observation.  I've been testing all the aircraft and I'm finding the modelling is incredibly good for default planes.  There are things that don't work in some of them sure, but the flight

Wonderful! The photogrammetry (still struggling with that word) in MSFS is really impressive stuff from a ways up, but at the level I like to explore - this is what we need! This looks stunning.

Just wanted to add - that penultimate shot (the girder work from inside the bridge) is un-(word probably wouldn't be allowed <grin>)-believable. I could happily live with that blown up 20 feet wide and filling a wall. Never seen anything quite like it in a sim.

Oh man that's awesome, once this sim gets some good aircraft - dam!

Yeah I agree. I wasn't super specific but was referring more towards stuff like the NG3. Needless to say, my FSEconomy flights are bliss in MFS.

Best news since I threw up my lunch :D:D

This will be an instant buy for me!! I only hope that Frank and the talented Orbx team have also people with less than monstrous PC hardware in mind, so we can handle all these details without having to live with a slide show, when we fly over Sydney :(

Yes, I hope so too.

Well, this is a stunner!

Superb craftsmanship.

Being 9 months + in development, it obviously has MS/Asobo consent.

Perhaps Orbx could list all the other Cityscapes in the pipeline so that I can do some calculations to assess the size of the overdraft I need to apply for?:)

I recall from my 1st visit to Sydney that crossing their suburban roads was an exercise in sprinting self preservation.

Whereas in NZ the suburban speed limit was 30 mph, Sydney preferred 50 mph, & they drove up to & beyond that.:)

Out of curiosity, will the highly detailed Harbor Bridge include moving vehicles??

TTM

Wow, that looks spectacular!

 

If I could have picked just one product for Orbx to do, this would have been it.

 

While I fly all sorts of places around the world in the sim, I do find myself flying into/out of my home airport quite a bit. This is going to make that look sooo much better!

 

Can't wait :)

How about fixing the skyscraper height in the London pack first?

 

There are 2 different teams working on these 2 cities.
