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

Looks great. But why can't I buy this in Marketplace on the sim?

 

This would be better for the customer plus also ensure compatibility with the sim to avoid the app crashing as has been reported a few times on this thread.

the “Greenland Centre” in Downtown, is a block south of its actual position in real life. It should be on Bathurst street rather than Liverpool street

Thank you very much for pointing this out! You are absolutely right (also re RBS Tower - must have slipped through). This will be fixed in a patch, of course.

Hi Orbx!

I am, as many others are, happy that you have taken time out of your last nine months to make the Sydney scenery package. I think you have done an amazing job with it, however, I have found some problems with the current package. I hope you can fix some of these issues to make the scenery even closer to perfect. 
 

First off, the “Greenland Centre” in Downtown, is a block south of its actual position in real life. It should be on Bathurst street rather than Liverpool street.

 

Secondly the building that lights up blue at night with the absurdly large spire is too tall. the roof height, sail and spire are much higher than they are in real life.

 

Thirdly, Parramatta has been mostly forgotten in this scenery package despite it being talked about in the announcement of the package. Most of the buildings are completely missing.

Only a couple of buildings are there, most of the tall buildings are missing.
 

I hope you can fix these issues to make the scenery package closer to perfect. Thank you.

Agree with you regarding Parramatta.It looks nothing like in real life.So many buildings are missing.Also BankWest Stadium has been neglected.Hoping this can be addressed in a future patch

This is one of the buildings missing in Parramatta currently.Altitude West Tower (currently the tallest building in Parramatta) 

Would be great if this could be included in a future patch.

Also I have included a photo of BankWest Stadium which is also missing.

These would be great additions to the 2nd biggest city in Sydney.

I seem to be having some terrain issues :o I tried to sync the simulator via Orbx app to no avail. Any ideas how to fix?

You probably have Bing Data set to off. Please read this post:

Hi Wolfgang, 

           I simply uninstalled , deleted the Running Cache turned Bing on and re installed.

Appears that will fix that elevation problem, and crashes.

 

Cheers

Loaded Cityscape Sydney, took off from YSSY and < 1 minute = CTD

Google and end up here.

Uninstall, Delete RCF (turn it back on),Turn Bing Data=ON (Is it OFF by default?), Install Cityscape Sydney.

All Good but need a GA that is slower than Cessna 172 to enjoy

I also like the default Cessna 152 and the Zlin Savage Cub very much for low and slow.

Would like to know as well about marketplace availability. 

 

With regards to Sydney, there has been the technical limitation with one of the files due to its size. Playfab cannot handle files larger than 4GB and the Sydney ortho file size is larger. 
We do have a proposed solution whereby we have this ortho file distributed by Orbx Central for MS customers.

Thank you for the update, but for the non technical (like me), do you have an estimate please of when it will be available in Marketplace to purchase and download?

 

The Sydney Citiscape looks amazing, and am sure it will be a worldwide hit when available

Thanks but I will wait for it to be available in Marketplace. I did go to OrbxDirect, I think it says to install and manage a seperate program called "Central", and the online user guide 4.1.23 does not seem to mentiom MSFS at all, guide says following sims are supported.  But I might have not understood this very well.

 

 

Simulator

Windows

FSX

Yes

Prepar3D

Yes

Aerofly FS 2

Yes

X-Plane

Yes

Quite possible the guide has missed an update to reflect this.  Fear not, Central is a great program, best thing since sliced bread for product management.  The only issue some people have is the separation between Marketplace and Orbx Direct products not being visible in one place.  If that will worry you then stick with Marketplace, if not download Central and get the product!

Yeah it's been 6 weeks now LOL. Sydney was released on the 8th of October. Not sure Orbx can do anything - they confirmed the files was submitted to Microsoft on the 12th October. I'm going to propose this to MS in there next Dev Q and A.

 

I really don't know whats going on there, Dundee which looks fantastic by the way! was released by Orbx on the 14th of November and in less than a week it's on the Microsoft Marketplace (anounced today).

Thank you. I purchased Landmark London City Pack through Marketplace and the installation worked seamlessly.

 

For Cityscape Sydney, please what is the latest with a release date on Marketplace?

Regarding Landmark London City, I noticed the release notes for 1.1.0 has been released on the Marketplace but the product itself is still at 1.0.1 because the sim needs updating - which I've tried to do to no avail. I have no idea what's going on, hopefully somebody will sort it.
