Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Created by the undisputed master of city scenery, Andras Kozma, this Manhattan X scenery is a direct successor of the very successful and award winning Manhattan scenery for FS2004.

Instead of trying to update the existing one, the whole project was redone using new standards to ensure it would be fast enough to be usable. Almost double the amount of buildings, and using all the new effects of FSX, Manhattan X sets new standards. Designed with helicopters in mind, the scenery can also be explored with small aircrafts or ships. Even if you like to fly large aircraft you'll enjoy the views when you approach the nearby airports. FSX deserves Manhattan X !

4.0 out of 5 stars The scenery that never sleeps 11 Aug 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Scenery Manhattan X is quite possibly the most expansive scenery add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X, covering in detail the entire island.

The area is based on real satellite imigary which maps out the area to crisp precision. At night the skyline is laiden with all the bloom from the streets below that you'd expect to see in real life. The add-on includes a bonus mission in which you fly a tourist helicopter around Manhattan from the Wall Street heliport. As an added extra, atmospheric sounds are included to increase the feeling of 'really being there'.

On the downside, the sheer volume of scenery objects does have an inevitably detremental impact on system performance and matters aren't made better by the nability to tweak scenery settings. It was also dissapointing not being able to land anywhere on the island, making it unrealisticly touch-sensitive like the rest of the default scenery.

Overall, Scenery Manhattan X is a great add-on; it really brings New York to life and makes for great fun flying around. It must be noted though that this package does not enhance any of the airports in the area (JFK, Newark, La Guardia etc.) however is sufficient enough to make flying in and around New York a fun experience. Four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York, New York, it's a wonderful town.... 17 Sep 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
5 stars from me, a wonderfully created atmospheric depiction of the "Big Apple".

First of all - BEWARE - Having looked on the reverse of the box, it does state that you must have FSX Service Pack 2 or Acceleration installed to download this game, if you haven't got it, download it, or, if you don't want to do that, then you can't install this add-on, period....

This is from the "Read Me" manual after installation.

System requirements
* Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 CPU (Core 2 Quad advised)
* 2 GB RAM (4 GB advised)
* Direct X 9 compatible 512 MB Graphics Card
* Direct X compatible Sound card
* Microsoft FSX (with SP2 or Acceleration)
* Windows XP, Windows VISTA, Windows 7 (fully updated)

You can also install this on FS9, if you have it, which is quite easy, you get a large map of this Central Manhattan area with the disc, which is absolutely indispensable when flying along, especially for the suitable flightpaths and radar frequencies. The graphics and scenery are magnificent, you feel as though you are actually there, albeit, on a computer....
As mentioned in the other review, none of the major airports feature in this superb re-creation, which is a shame, I would have liked La Guardia to have been included as it is the closest to the city centre. The scenery is best viewed by light aircraft or helicopter, you can fly jets from any of the outer airports in the default scenery, such as JFK, LG, Newark and Teterboro, across the city skyline which is fine for sightseeing and for taking screenshots, etc. They only created this with summer textures though, so, no snow, unfortunately.

This is amazing. The detail and size is incredible. If you fly into JFK or LGA you will love this coming down the Hudson.
