A brand new update for Orbx Landmarks London has been released for free for current owners of the product. The extensive update sees terraforming changes, new points of interest and changes to textures and modelling based on feedback.
The new update adds a more accurate representation for the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, additional ships and boats in meaningful areas, and regional stadiums such as Wimbledon and Stamford Bridge. Furthermore, the positioning and scaling of several tall skyscrapers and buildings have been changed to better reflect their position in real life.
No screenshots were shared of the update to highlight the changes made in the product. For those who may be unfamiliar with Landmarks London, the product adds hundreds of new points of interest and buildings to the English capital making it more representative of the actual city.
Downloading the update can be done through Orbx Central and the update is already on the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace. If you don’t own it already, you can pick up Landmarks London from OrbxDirect for $10.99 AUD (approximately US$8.31 | €6,82 | £6.17).
In the meantime, check out the announcement for Orbx’s upcoming Landmarks Singapore.
