Orbx announces Landmarks Dublin City Pack for MSFS

Orbx is back to the Landmarks City Packs series for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After Melbourne a few months ago, the team is now coming to Europe to overhaul Dublin’s skyline with Landmarks Dublin City Pack.

Dublin is the capital and largest city in Ireland, a place with a very rich history and culture. This makes for an excellent choice to be targeted by Orbx’s excellent Landmarks series, which looks to add over 60 highly-detailed points of interest to the city’s scenery in MSFS.

Dublin has an interesting combination of old and new, from centuries-old churches to modern complexes. Orbx will surely add the most important landmarks such as Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, or the Guinness Breweries, but we should also expect to see numerous general enhancements around the city, with improved building placement, construction cranes, marinas, and more.

An important feature to highlight in this particular pack is the inclusion of several animations. This always makes for an even more immersive and realistic scenery and Orbx seems to be looking to boost that. The preliminary feature list includes animated vessels in the port, animated double-decker buses, and moving trains along the Tara Street Railway Bridge.

This will definitely be a great upgrade to the Dublin landscape in MSFS, as Orbx has done with high degrees of success with the previous Landmarks City Packs. For now, there’s no indicated date for the release, but it should take place fairly soon. In the meantime, check this initial set of preview images!
