Finally, the update the whole world has been waiting for: Adelaide gets a facelift in Microsoft Flight Simulator thanks to an independent developer.
Microsoft Simulator was a smash hit last year in part thanks to its entire earth scale map that players could navigate on their planes.

But this approach left something to be desired when it came to specific details. Areas often included bugs such as massive Melbourne monoliths or sometimes lacked real attention to detail.
That’s why Studio Orbx is continuing its custom updates in places like Singapore, London, Paris, and Sydney by releasing a City Pack for Adelaide for the game.
