Saint Petersburg (Russian: Санкт-Петербург, tr. Sankt-Peterburg, IPA: [ˈsankt pʲɪtʲɪrˈburk]), formerly known as Petrograd (Петроград) (1914–1924), then Leningrad (Ленинград) (1924–1991), is a city on the Neva River, at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. It is Russia's second-largest city after Moscow. With a population of roughly 5.4 million inhabitants, it is the fourth-most populous city in Europe, the most-populous city on the Baltic Sea, as well as the northernmost metropolis in Europe and the world. As an important Russian port on the Baltic Sea, it is governed as a federal city.

The city was founded by Tsar Peter the Great on 27 May 1703 on the site of a captured Swedish fortress, and was named after apostle Saint Peter. Saint Petersburg is historically and culturally associated with the birth of the Russian Empire and Russia's entry into modern history as a European great power. It served as a capital of the Tsardom of Russia and the subsequent Russian Empire from 1713 to 1918 (being replaced by Moscow for a short period of time between 1728 and 1730).

This is pretty OK. The quality of landmarks is inconsistent and varies from one to another. This is not on the level of Drzewiecki Designs landmark packages. But it does make St. Petersburg (my home town) look a bit closer to reality. I hope the developer continues to improve the package. I do recommend it for anyone who wants to experience St. Petersburg a little bit better than what the default simulator provides.

I'd probably rate this as a 3.5/5 as it is a reasonable price, however some of the models are a bit of a mixed bag, with some being very good and others being quite basic. If more quality models are added I will change my rating to a 4.

It is the first time when Sank Petersburg has good representation from immersion in the simulator. There is a great model of ULLI Pulkovo airport with a very accurate and excellent modeled surrounding of the airport for P3DV from Digital Design but unfortunately not the city. I spent 5 years in this great city full of architectural monuments, flying there many times so was very curious how will look on MSFS 2020. So the city regarding building structure looks very well and I was even able to find my university and dormitory, but the center part where on the banks of the river Neva are the main historical architectural buildings were very artificial generic buildings and the Petroplavskia fortress was one big cubic form. So the product Saint Petersburg landmarks change the view on the center of the city in much better immersion. Of course, there are still missing well-known buildings mainly around the Nevskij prospect , the main street of the city , also cruiser Avrora , but hope the authors will continue to add more monuments , buildings, and bridges. Yes, textures are not the best and this could be improved. Hope also that the authors will add great palaces in the surrounding of Sank Petersburg as Petergorf and Carskoie Selo. If this will happen the product will have a lot of supporters because Sankt Petersburg is one of the most beautiful architectural cities in the world. My marking is somewhere between 3.5 and 4 ,now I give as the first good attemept 4.

(note: I am from St. Petersburg myself)

So, I am giving this a very optimistic 4 stars for now - and that comes with the disclaimer that this will hold if the developer's promise to expand the pack more comes true.
Improvements to the city were sorely needed, and this pack absolutely does fix the most glaring problems (I am so thankful it removed the horrible "skyscrapers" that were there instead of the Petropavlovka's cathedral spire and the Admiralty!) The buildings added are very welcome also, with a number of the most prominent landmarks now present and visible.

However... I also have trouble recommending this one for what's currently there, even at the low price. The number of new landmark is very, very small - and so many important ones are missing. I can understand why the developer released this early but in its current state, but in my view they should have waited a bit more; at the moment, this city does not compare favourably to many other commercial city add-ons out there, even at this lower price.

But again - what is there is very welcome, and if the developer simply continues to add more buildings, even at the same exact level of quality as now, it will become worth it. But it needs maybe 3 times more buildings than it has now, and could really use a few other fixes (if the current SDK allows it), especially when it comes to some of the terrain (there are "hills" in many places where Bing Maps falsely recognizes building elevation as ground elevation, resulting in some truly ugly street and buildings sticking out of hills).

PS - I hate that skyscraper at Lakhta with a passion, but that is not the developer's fault at all :)

Очень некрасиво выглядят стыки мостов с поверхностью (например дворцового моста с васильевским островом) , не очень качественные текстуры. Особенно на адмиралтействе и на Лахта-центре это очень заметно. По воде разведённых мостов продолжают ездить машины, очень странно смотрится. Надеюсь что приписка про то, что в дальнейшем будут ещё и ещё новые достопримечательности и объекты не обман. А то что есть сейчас пока ещё сыровато.



Connections of bridges with the surface looks not well (for example, the Palace bridge with Vasilyevsky Island), also some buildings as Gazprom tower (Lakhta Center) or Admiralty has very low-quality textures. Cars continue to drive on the water, between the raised bridges, it looks very strange. I hope that the postscript about "The product will be updated! And you will receive more and more attractions and objects." is not a cheating, if it's true there will be great landmarcks pack. But now it's 3*.

LEONARDO SOFTWARE HOUSE SRL - FLY THE MADDOG X MSFS

An excellent addition to MSFS although the textures feel dated compared to other aircraft for the sim.

Very nicely done. Required if it's your home base airport :)
AEROSOFT - SIM-WINGS GRAN CANARIA MSFS
Lloyd
The airport looks excellent, except I would remove some of the foliage near the runways. I don't remember it being there in real life. Also the default mesh of MSFS caused a bulge to appear behind the airport. After purchasing this scenery it did not fix this issue. Besides that, excellent product.
DOUBLE T - SUVARNABHUMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT- MSFS
LIONEL
The modeling is not at the level of what we can expect on MSFS 2020... it looks more like a recycling of FSX than a modeling made for MSFS. It's better than nothing but not worth the asking price. I hope there will be updates to improve that model.

Amazing scenery ! Extremely detailed. should definitely consider buying it !
SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2
Demetrio
It’s the 1st time I review a Sim product. I’m a real life commercial pilot, using the Sim to practice my IFR procedures since training over 10 years. I was hooked with the FSPassenger and since I moved to the P3D4, I only used the Sim to practice some FSLabs A320 procedures, mostly abnormal proc before the real life Sim checks every 6 months :) But with APLV2… I’m back to having this feeling I had in the early days with FSPassengers in FSX. It’s so well thought… I find myself on my days OFF sitting on the computer for hours, practicing new procedures I’m normally don’t in my real job, at random destinations around I might never go to in real life and getting rewarded for it… the feeling of being on the top 50 worldwide -so far-, only makes me want to get to the top 10 ;) and get hired by a 5* I feel with this, the simming days for just practice or for fun without progress in the sim are long gone. Big 5* for me. I hope they continue improving the product adding new features, attracting more simmers to join, that will contribute in making it more challenging and of course, more enjoyable.
