Orbx Releases Frankfurt City Pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator

April 26, 2021

Orbx has released their Landmarks Frankfurt City Pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator after announcing the project last week. The scenery features 100 custom landmarks, 11 points of interest, custom orthoimagery and more.

“Lovingly referred to as “Mainhattan” by the locals, we have added over 100 custom landmarks to detail this global hub of commerce, culture, education and tourism,” the developers state.

Frankfurt City Pack features the following:

  • 11 high-detailed custom landmarks including Europaturm, Hauptbahnhof (railway station), Messeturm, Paulskirche, and Kaiserdom
  • 100 custom landmarks, balancing quality and performance
  • Many enhancements to the city and surrounding areas: improved vegetation and building placements, static trains and boats, cranes, chimneys, and more
  • Extensive terraforming across the coverage area, enhancing how the custom landmarks sit within the simulator’s terrain
  • Includes a custom model of the Commerzbank Arena (Waldstadion) stadium 
  • Custom orthoimagery covering both sides of the Main, from Schwanheim in the West to the Offenbach photogrammetry area
  • Custom night lighting based on real-world photography

“The city of Frankfurt, with the Main River coursing through the city, comes to life with an impressive skyline and custom night lighting, and downtown being located just north of the final approach to Frankfurt Airport,” Orbx adds.

Frankfurt City Pack is available for purchase on Orbx Direct for $11.60.
