Orbx has recently released a scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator enhancing the default cityscape of Adelaide, announced the development of Brisbane Airport v2 scenery for Prepar3D, and at last, announced the development of Brisbane Airport (YBBN) scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Adelaide Landmarks

Announced to be in development just about five days ago, on March 18th, Orbx has yesterday, as scheduled, released the Adelaide Landmarks scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Also known as Adelaide City Pack, the scenery features over 90 custom landmarks and structures, extensive terraforming across the coverage area, custom night lighting, or improves vegetation and building placements throughout the city. Furthermore, the developers have included a custom orthoimagery for an area of about 100 square kilometers.

The Adelaide City Pack can be purchased through the Orbx website for approximately €8.40 or $12.00 AUD.

Feature list

  • More than 90 custom landmark buildings and structures
  • Many enhancements to the city and surrounding areas: improved vegetation and building placements, marinas, tall powerline towers, etc.
  • Detailed representation of the Port of Adelaide and adjacent tank farms and industrial areas
  • Extensive terraforming across the coverage area, enhancing how our custom landmarks sit within the simulator’s terrain.
  • Custom orthoimagery (~100 sq km) for the downtown and port areas as well as the St Vincent Gulf shoreline and salt evaporation ponds
  • Custom night lighting based on real-world photography

Brisbane Airport v2

On the same day, Orbx has announced the development of a new version of their rendition of Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) for Prepar3D v4.4 and higher. The scenery has been completely overhauled by the Orbx team from in Havant.

Based on the forum post made by the developer, the new version of the airport will feature a considerable number of updates since the original release of the scenery back in 2010, over 10 years ago. The new version is being built using the latest technologies that were not available back then, such as PBR textures.

Once released, the scenery will feature custom SODE jetways, VDGS integration, accurate and up-to-date airport layout, color-corrected orthoimagery for the airport area, or compatibility with Australia v2 scenery, for example.

Orbx further said that this will be their most-detailed Australian airport yet. There will be a 50% discount for owners of Brisbane Airport v1 upon release of the new version. While the release date was not announced, it was said, that the scenery is close to being released.

At last, it was mentioned, that the Microsoft Flight Simulator version of the scenery is currently being developed. No further information was shared on that topic.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world. My favourite airport is by far Corfu with its scenic and challenging approach. I founded FSNews in May 2019.
