Although the quality of the aircraft, and the level of features included, has become very impressive over the years the community created content has always helped to lift simulators to a new level. This package brings the city of Philadelphia and what is considered the Terminal Control area into a photorealistic landscape that looks better than even the most detailed locations in the vanilla FSX or P3D simulators.
This wholesale change makes a massive difference to the growth and development of your FSX experience, making it easier than ever before to just hop into the cockpit and take the aircraft for a ride over a stunning landscape below!
Although covering many locations, the main concentration is on the Philadelphia area. The fifth largest city in the whole of the United States, it’s population of around 1.5m is one of the most impressive that you’ll find anywhere in the nation. Philadelphia itself is a thriving city that has grown ever since its inception in 1682, when it was founded by William Penn. Serving as the capital of the Pennsylvania Colony, it played a huge role in the creation of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the Constitution being created.
During the Revolutionary War, it served as a key capital as well as the temporary capital as Washington D.C. was constructed. Throughout the 19th Century it stood as one of the most impressive industrial cities in the US, and became a major location for migration from all across Europe, as well as African Americans.
A tough period in the 1980s nearly led to the city going bankrupt, but strong rejuvenation and regrowth within the area has led to a far more balanced and diverse city ever since. The economic center of the state, this is evidenced by the various skyscrapers that are amongst some of the largest in the US – these stand out like a sore thumb, creating a stunning, entrancing skyline.
By using 50cm/pixel images, this package covers the Philadelphia TAC as well as specific regions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Included in this are locations such as Atlantic City, Reading, Trenton and of course Philadelphia. By completely transforming the whole location to ensure that key landscape elements and landmarks are put in exactly where they should be, this tallies with a real-life map of the region to the very last square mile. In total, you’ll receive 3,600 square miles of inclusive content that covers so much along the way.
By combining the most impressive features of each region into one package, you can easily see everything portrayed in a style and quality that it has never been done in before.
