Created to provide fans and residents of "Motown" with an easy way to see this wonderful city explode into life and look the way that it was supposed to, you'll now able to ensure that you have the most resplendent recreation of such a wonderful, charismatic city waiting for you.
It's one of the largest cities in the whole of the USA, and this has meant that it was grown, changed, and developed massively over the years.
However, Detroit today is a changed city - its industry is now much quieter and as a result, the city looks very different from the way that many would have imagined. Whilst this does the best it can to represent Detroit in the most positive manner, it's also made to ensure that it covers the reality of the city - this is a deeply fractured location, brought to life even with all of its faults and challenges.
The spirit of the city is captured here in the most beautiful manner, creating a city that might not have the jam-packed roads of the 1980s but still holds that unique spirit and style that many cities cannot live up to. In this package, then, you are getting a close remake of a wonderful city that has seen many unique changes unfold over the years, and this does everything it can to capture these and make them truly stand out today.
In this setting, you will receive access to a whole range of key features across the city such as;
A whole new range of textures that are taken from the air, making sure that the coverage of the city is perfect not just in detail but in the geography that it comes with, too. The aerial image coverage is available for up to 20cm/pixel, making sure that the city looks its very best as you swoop down and witness it unfold.
Even Harsen's Island has been included, with a whole new change and improvement to make sure it looks its magnificent finest. This includes a completely new river delta of the St. Clair River, which looks truly magnificent and does a great job of making the area feel even more unique.
A huge range of new buildings added with over 1,000 major additions and changes - this lights up the Detroit skyline and makes sure that this wonderful city can come to its true senses and style with ease. If you want to see Detroit as it should look, start with this.
Hugely detailed and totally customized mesh terrain that fits in with the quality of the buildings and the scenery to help make the city come to life and also come across with precision. The whole idea of doing this is that it will quite quickly create a design and a format that, when used properly, will help to bring the whole city together.
Over 120,000 new autogen objects are placed across the city. Settings have been edited and changed to make sure that it covers everything that you could possibly need along the way to make the city look alive.
The Ambassador Bridge which crosses the river into Canada has now successfully been added - this landmark is much needed and helps to paint the right picture of Detroit as you fly over it, making something that looks outstanding and really sells the image of the location in the perfect detail.
5 Heliports are added in, all of which have been looked after and designed to the very closest detail that it possibly can. The heliports are wonderful looking in design and make the perfect ally for anyone who wishes to make sure the city has everything that they may need.
Additionally, a huge range of airports has also been added which looks truly wonderful and does a great job of selling the city and making it look spectacular. All of the major airports are improved with extra detail paid to even the most insignificant of details. These airports include;
- KDTW - Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport
- KDET - Coleman A. Young International Airport (Detroit City Apt)
- CYQG - Windsor (Canada)
- KYIP - Willow Run
- KPTK - Oakland Co Intl
- KMTC - Selfridge ANGB
- KONZ - Grosse Ile Mun
- Z92 - Harsens Island
- Y47 - New Hudson
- 1D2 - Canton Plymouth Mettetal
- 7D2 - Oakland/Troy
Massive attention to detail in more than just the sight that you see, this has added in perfectly ambient sounds that make the city of Detroit burst into life. The sounds such as the gulls in the background can be clearly heard as you fly, along with the sound effects that come from downtown, all sounding absolutely wonderful.
A new range of traffic has been included, also. This comes in the form of animated ship traffic that moves along the river, painting a lovely photo underneath you that looks absolutely outstanding as you fly over it.
Traffic has been adjusted on the roads, too. This ensures that you are going to get the help that you need in understanding the next move that you move; this comes from making traffic on the roads look realistic with a fine mixture added into the passing vehicles.
Ford Field has been included, which is an old racing track based around the famous old airport. At one stage in its existence, Ford Field was one of the most popular airfields out there yet today it stands as a testament to a different era when things were very different.
This works fully with by FSX and P3D so regardless of what system you use or what simulator you prefer you can include this awesome download in there without any problems whatsoever. This brings the whole city to life in both simulators with no problems across the system or simulator.

I have to say finding this scenery was a great investment. It adds just the right amount of scenery to a normally dead area in FSX. Highly recommended to anyone making the KDTW airport a normal stop on your flights.
