Orbx Announces Brisbane Landmarks for MSFS

Major developer, Orbx, have previewed their next destination in their Landmarks series: Brisbane Landmarks for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

In developing this major Australian city, Orbx have included four highly detailed custom landmarks, specifically, the Brisbane Skytower, the Gabba and Suncorp Stadiums, and the Riverside Expressway bridge system..

The developers also feature another 125 medium-detail landmarks , as well as major work done on terraforming that should enhance the look of the simulator. The Port of Brisbane has also been faithfully represented, with enhancements made to marinas, the estuary, moored boats and ferries, among other things.

This scenery has been optimised to work with the forthcoming Brisbane Airport (YBBN) for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Currently in beta, Orbx expect to release this addon later this month.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, and is the most populated city in the state. It is known for its laidback lifestyle, arts and culture.
