ORBX announces incredible-looking “Cityscape Sydney”

Orbx is on a roll, with new addons for Microsoft Flight Simulator almost everyday. After announcing their first all-new airport for MSFS, it’s time to go to the southern hemisphere for a particularly impressive new addon! It’s Cityscape Sydney, an extensive recreation of Australia’s largest and iconic city. After nine months in development, the dev team is now ready to share their work with the community and it looks absolutely incredible!

Developer Frank Schnibben, together with the Orbx team, has created a complete cityscape, with thousands of details and features all across the city and its surrounding areas. Over 100 points of interest have been recreated, with all the well known buildings easily recognizable. A few of these assets have been given special attention, with ultra high detail textures. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the “centerpiece of this scenery“, with incredible attention to detail. Just look at this:
