 Summary of resources for Chicago related products 

 

Chicago City X has been developed to provide the immersion into the cityscape of Chicago at a level never seen before. Keeping in mind a unique role the city has played in the flight sim community for many years, we have decided to put special attention not only to the greatest landmarks but to every downtown building. You will find details such as restaurants, rooftop cranes, balconies, swimming pools... Buildings have exact shapes, reflections, night textures. Feel free to explore the area finding various details: why not checking out a thrilling view from the Skydeck or performing a high-speed slalom between the masts of hundrieds of yahts in the marina? The product is fully VFR-capable, you will find everything you need for visual approaches to any of Chicago airports or just GA/heli scenic flying. This product does not include any airports but creates a perfect combo with Chicago Airports X by Drzewiecki Design. Chicago City X is a unique experience and definitely one of the most detailed city sceneries ever created for flight simulator.

A demo version named "Chicago X Demo" is provided. This is a fully functional freeware scenery, perfectly aligned with the full payware version. This ensures no problems with online (VATSIM, IVAO and multiplayer) flying in case some users have the payware scenery and some don't. The demo features both - the City and the Airports packages and includes some downtown buildings as well as all airports with terminals but with low resolution textures and generally much less details. Demo sceneries are available on our website and on other websites with FS freeware add-ons.
