Taking scenery to another level
Australian-based flight simulator scenery powerhouse group Orbx has released a city enhancement pack for its home city of Melbourne. We pay it a visit and discover why it is such a great flight simulation destination.
A long pedigree
Orbx has now been around with an ever-increasing presence since its founder John Venema started a personal scenery project in 2005 with his freeware Vista Australis. This package went on to be the most popular download for Flight Simulator 2004. With the release of FSX, John saw opportunities to greatly enhance the default scenery and sent Orbx on what has now been a 16-year journey providing very high-quality scenery products for FSX, Prepar3D, X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Simulator (MFS).
