Chicago Landmarks MSFS is a highly detailed scenery of Chicago city in Illinois, the United States of America. It includes roughly two thousand custom-made objects and numerous interesting areas of the city to explore. The whole downtown area has been custom-made. You will find plenty of marinas, railyards, bridges, stadiums - all in full PBR and with epic night textures. Additionally, sceneries of 17 landable heliports are provided. The product cleverly merges with default photogrammetry.

Chicago is the most populous city in Illinois, as well as the third-most populous city in the United States. With an estimated population of 2,716,450 (2017), it is the third-most populous city in the United States after New York and Los Angeles. The metropolitan area, with nearly 10 million people, is the third-largest metropolitan area in the world by land area.

Chicago is an international hub for finance, culture, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. It is the site of the creation of the first standardized futures contracts at the Chicago Board of Trade, which today is the largest and most diverse derivatives market globally, generating 20% of all volume in commodities and financial futures. O'Hare International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, and the region also has the largest number of U.S. highways and the greatest amount of railroad freight. In 2012, Chicago was listed as an alpha global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network, and it ranked seventh in the entire world in the 2017 Global Cities Index. The Chicago area has one of the highest gross domestic products (GDP) in the world, generating $680 billion in 2017. In addition, the city has one of the world's most diversified and balanced economies, not being dependent on anyone's industry.

The name "Chicago" is derived from a French rendering of the indigenous Miami-Illinois word "shikaakwa" for a wild relative of the onion, known to botanists as Allium tricoccum and known more commonly as ramps. The first known reference to the site of the current city of Chicago as "Checagou" was by Robert de LaSalle around 1679 in a memoir. The city of Chicago has been known by many nicknames, but it is most widely recognized as the "Windy City".

I'm not from Chicago, so if there is anything major missing I wouldn't know. That said, I find the depiction to be very immersive. The observation deck interior on the Willis Tower is even modelled. Wrigley Field, Comiskey Park (sorry, I know it is the new stadium with a new corporate name, but it will always be Comiskey to me), and Solider Field are all modelled. The "El" (elevated train) is modelled, complete with animated trains. Lakeside looks great with the breakwater, parks and marinas. Lakeshore Drive and surrounds are also well done.. I agree with the other reviewers that the buildings don't look good in the snow (they are all white), but that is only at lower LOD. Once you get close, the LOD resolves and they look good in the snow. Night lighting is also probably a bit too exuberant to be realistic, but I enjoy it anyway. At least the city is visible.

I believe this to be the best city scenery DD has published. Loving the details such as the animated L train. Textures look amazing in MSFS and the scene fits the default terrain perfectly. This is the most immersive "landmarks" product that I have!

Overall, good buy on sale.. i go back and fourth between 3 and 1/2 stars and 4, but since half not an option I'll go 4.

Buildings blend well when in the right position at the right time of day. Otherwise id say they are to bright or white or clean, not sure. The color tonality to me does not match from the photogram scenery. The LUT or LOD is not quite right?? Regardless, there's a difference. Harder to tell in flying low in the loop cause there's more designed buildings. Easier to see along the north shore and from a little altitude. Needs to be more gray, dark, somethin?

Winter does look off like the one reviewer said. unless u have it on the default snow with low clouds and such. it just looks off compared to rest of the scenery if its clear skies and just snow on the ground. But if you just throw on the preset snow weather choice, it looks fine.

All that "bad" stuff i can live with because i appreciate the indefinite draw distance. since there are so many designed buildings, that will be there even when flying in from distance, altitude is much better because you can see a skyline, because the buildings don't have to load in, they are just there. it makes it that much more real.

Then there's night time. which color tones not matching doesn't matter any way because its night and the night lighting albeit a little over the top looks so much better then the default night lighting. That still some what loads in. But can be seen so much further away then the default.


As i said on sale, i think worth it for sure. its goods still out weigh its "bads" And if it was ever updated to match better, then id say 5 stars for sure.

Rating it 4 stars because the buildings are not optimized for snow. They look completely white and very unrealistic.

Drzewiecki Design is my favorite scenery developer I buy their new releases without thinking twice. The buildings all blend in with the other scenery well. A+.
