Orbx has taken to their own forums to announce an update to their popular release of Cityscape Sydney for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Developed by Frank Schnibben the update brings in lots of new content such as an animated Ferris wheel at Luna Park, lighthouses (with animated lights), cruise ships, ferries, and other boats, in addition to light rail trains and a 3D cliff between Bondi Beach and South Head.

Fixes and improvements include the correction of misplaced objects, improvement on textures, and bridges made to be flyable under.

The Cityscape Sydney update is yet to be released through Microsoft Marketplace but has been submitted and awaiting clearance. The original can be purchased here for EUR 8.07.


Fixed bugs/replacements:

  • Misplaced objects corrected.
  • New textures on many objects (e.g. AMP building).

I have been an avid aviation enthusiast for about eight years since I first started using FSX. Apart from flying in the sims (now X-Plane 11 and MSFS) I enjoy reading about aviation through the many periodicals and books available. I live in South Yorkshire in the northern half of the UK.
