Orbx YBBN Brisbane - Extent of scenery coverage

Recommended Posts

I recently took advantage of the Orbx Black Friday sale and purchased a number of products including YBBN Brisbane. I was very pleasantly surprised. I love flying in my home area and had previously purchased and installed Orbx Brisbane City Landmarks.


When I took my first flight after installing YBBN Brisbane, it seemed to me that the scenery area along the Brisbane river and in particular, the Port of Brisbane area at the mouth of the river, were displayed with additional detail. Overall, it was an especially enjoyable flight in my home town. The combination of the two Orbx products provided a great VFR experience.


Just wondering if the developers can shed any light on whether it was just my imagination or whether Orbx YBBN was designed to contain additional detail beyond the actual airport precinct?

Hi there,


glad you're enjoying our Brisbane renditions!


The two products -- YBBN and Landmarks -- differ in their extent and features between the platforms. For P3D, the airport includes riverside detail from the Gateway Bridges east, including Fisherman Island, while the Landmarks product covers the downtown area west of the bridges. For MSFS, the Landmarks product wraps all around the YBBN area and includes the port and riverside industrial areas, while YBBN is focused on the airport itself.


Cheers, Holger
