Truth to be told Niagara Falls/Buffalo is not a US City only as it also covers quite a bit of Canada, but anyway: Being one of the world`s greatest tourist attractions on the borderline between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls will amaze you! The scenery comes with unprecedented detail in effects , animations and awe inspiring views.

There are three main helipads in the scenery, the major one for sightseeing flights on the Canadian side, a smaller one very close to the Falls on the US side of the river and a medical rooftop pad on the Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo. Furthermore the package includes a bunch of International Airports and small airfields in the area in nice detail.

US Cities X is a series of city scenery for FSX that covers US cities created by LimeSim. Based on an extensive aerial image it will have all the major buildings and landmarks plus all the airports and heliports that are inside the covered areas.

It is clearly intended to fill the gap between the default scenery and very high dense city scenery such as Manhattan X, London VFR or Venice X. Because the file size is rather large due to the ground image it only includes one season (in most cases this is not a real issue) and no night textures. The VFR flights over these cities are mostly a day time affair anyway.

Features:

  • Aerial image coverage with up to 15cm/pix resolution (see attached Google Earth file)
  • More than 850 major buildings included
  • About 70,000 autogen buildings placed realistically
  • Extremely realistic animations of the Falls
  • Scheduled sightseeing boats going to the falls
  • Many sightseeing around the Falls like:
    • Skylon Tower with animated outside elevators
    • Marineland with animated -2G tower (check out the Orcas!)
    • Rainbow and other bridges crossing Niagara River
    • Spanish Cable Car crossing “the Whirlpool”
    • SkyWheel
    • Captive Balloon (animated)
    • Prospect viewing platform
    • Hydro plants
  • Major airports in and around the city are covered with new ground images (no new building structures added):

Viel Fototapete und trotz höchster Einstellungen und Option beim installieren, fehlen einige Gebäude (blauer Aussichtsturm, weiße Pyramide, sämtliche Hochhäuser...)

Diese Szenerie sieht bei Rundflügen am Tage tatsächlich so klasse aus wie auf den Produktbildern zu sehen ist und sofern man einen flotten Rechner hat läuft der FSX auch bei höchsten Einstellungen flüssig weiter, allerdings ist sie wohl nicht für Tiefflüge gedacht, da die Texturen der Gebäude immer verschwommener werden je näher man ihnen kommt.
Macht aber ja nichts, weil man bei einem Rundflug ja eh nicht mit einer F-16 knapp über die Gebäude donnert, naja, jedenfalls normalerweise nicht:)

FSCGAA - ULAANBAATAR INTL AIRPORT ZMCK P3D4-5
Mag. Johann
FSCGAA did a great job in creating the new Ulaan Baatar airport (ZMCK) for P3D V4/V5. The textures are high quality, and the performance (FPS) is great too. I can recommend this scenery to everyone, who wants to fly to the capital of Mongolia, with a beautiful asian countryside!
TERRAINY STUDIOS - RV-8 - MSFS
Philipp
Handles good but the performance is not as good as in the real one. Cruise speed and climb rate seem pretty low.
ARIMA - EDLW DORTMUND INTL MSFS
Pavel
Any work deserves respect, but I would give an average rating, maybe even lower. I'm sure the author could have done better if he'd put in more effort. The biggest drawback is the incorrect operation of the ILS on both runways. This is a glaring shortcoming and it is desirable to correct it.
SCENERYTR - ISTANBUL AIRPORT LTFM MSFS
Ivan
Excellent work! Guys, if possible, please make a custom differents in thresholds for more realism
SIMPORT TEAM - SORSTOKKEN STORD AIRPORT ENSO MSFS
Markus
The airport features nice modelling for buildings in a good amount of detail and using crisp textures. What I do not like is the fact that the paved ground textures (apron and runway) are not at all life-like, too clean and perfect. Adding to that are the ground markings which are also too clean and sterile looking with a cartoonish looking contrast. So the quality of the ground textures does not match the good quality for the buildings. A-
nother drawback is the lack of aviation-relate-
d attention to detail: - Windsocks are missing - Localiser antenna is missing (visible as blurry part of the aerial imagery) - A generic model has been placed where the VOR station is located, however it is not the model of a VOR station - Wrong type of approach lighting - PAPI lights do not match the position of the lights visible on the aerial imagery So overall this is a good effort on the part of the buildings, but lacking in ground textures, markings and aviation related details.

Great plane! I love the look of the cockpit and it handles very good!
TROPICALSIM - ALBUQUERQUE INTL KABQ MSFS
Brian
The overall quality of this airport is excellent. This was a much-needed addition to the United States available scenery. The only real complaint as others have mentioned is the lack of interior modeling. While this is not a deal breaker by any means, for a terminal of that size at the offered price point there should have been some basic interior design work done. This for me, would have taken the airport to the 5-star rating.
DOUBLE T - KING ABDULAZIZ INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Brian
The guys giving this airport a 5-star rating need to put on glasses. This airport has the potential to be great but the blue edge taxi lights are all over the place (And far too many! Hand place these DEVS! Stop being lazy and relying on the SDK edge light tool!), disconnected taxi lines, default taxi signage (in questionable locations), ZERO defined taxi network information (ATC software can't give taxi instructions since no taxiways are defined and EFB software won't show which taxiway you are on for the same reason), poorly defined gate information, and default jetways. The modeling is nice on the buildings DT cared about. A lot of other buildings have much to be desired in their detail and texture quality. Ove-
rall this airport product is sloppy in its execution. With some care, this could become a three-star airport or even a four-star if more polish was put into it. It is clear to me this airport is a quickly rushed conversion from the X-Plane 11 version, dumped on the market, and left to rot. It's sad because Double T picks airports to model that no one else would touch which is great and I can see the potential in their abilities but the lazy execution of their airports plagues their ability to get to the next level time and time again. At the very least Double T, fix the blue edge lights being all over the place! They stick out onto taxiways and are littering the parking ramp of all terminals. If you can hand place your taxi edge lights that would be enough for me to bump my review to a three-star rating.
AEROSOFT - TAILSTRIKE DESIGNS - AIRPORT BERGAMO MSFS
Daniel
A very good rendition of Bergamo Airport. Nice details and also included the future terminal extension. A real joy for the eye! Unfortunately minus 2 stars as I get stutters on all various settings I tried which is reducing the joy flying into/out of here... Give it a performance update and it is 5 stars
AG SIM - LSZX SCHANIS AIRFIELD SWITZERLAND MSFS
Markus
This is by far the best Swiss airfield AG Sim has done so far. Nicely embedded into its surroundings with good modelling details and crisp textures, looking quite life-like overall. The ground markings are correct and the paved surface textures do not look sterile as they did in previous releases. The scenery doesn't feature many default assets either so this really is a lovely recreation of this gliding airfield. One thing that could be improved: The flood lighting during night time is overdone quite a bit The main building complex with the restaurant seems to get a large-area flood light from an unknown position, making it look way brighter than reality. Fortunately there's no night operations at Schänis so this is not taking away from the enjoyment too much, but should still be corrected. I-
n any case, gliding at this location is as lovely as it is in reality, well done.
