Orbx Teases Auckland Landmarks for MSFS

Through their Facebook page, Orbx has teased a new product to be soon announced as a new addition to their Landmarks product range enhancing the default cityscapes with custom objects and terraforming in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The team from Orbx provided multiple hints to the community to guess what the city are they talking about this time.

The hints suggested that the city is located in a country where 30% of its landmass is a national reserve, it’s a city where it is possible to walk from the Pacific Ocean to the Tasman Sea in four hours, and it is nicknamed “_ _ _ _ of _ _ _ _ _” due to its twin harbors and rich maritime heritage.

A set of three previews was also included in the post to further help the community to guess the city.

With all these hints, the community members pretty quickly guessed what city was the team from Orbx talking about – Auckland (City of Sails).

As these are just the teasers, the developers did not disclose any technical details of the scenery or when it will be coming. We should be able to get a better idea of that once the scenery is officially announced.

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand. It is located on the North Island just by the Pacific Ocean and, as the hint suggested, a four-hour walk to the Tasman Sea. It is one of a few cities in the world with two major harbors. The nickname City of Sails is based on the number of sailboats registered and actively used in the city.
