The fight is on between developers for the most accurate representation of the numerous landmarks of Paris. This time, Orbx enters the game with their Landmarks Paris City Pack product, only available for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Orbx scenery comprises 15 high details landmarks among the most iconics such as Notre Dame and the modern arts Centre Pompidou, with a further 200 lesser detailed yet high quality custom landmarks. True to is nickname “City of light”, all models feature a custom night lighting. The terrain has also been adjusted to better match the imagery used, especially around the Seine river banks, and dedicated orthoimagery has been used in areas where the default image is blurred, mostly due to the presence of military terrain.
