Product information "US Cities X - Los Angeles"

That’s not only because of the rich and famous but also because the layout of the city looks spectacular. From the coastline to the mountains around the city, LA is a great city to see from above.

US Cities X is a series of city scenery for FSX and P3D that covers US cities created by LimeSim. Based on an extensive aerial image it will have all the major buildings and landmarks plus all the airports and heliports that are inside the covered areas. It is clearly intended to fill the gap between the default scenery and very high dense city scenery such as Manhattan X, London VFR or Venice X. Because the file size is rather large due to the ground image it only includes one season (in most cases this is not a real issue) and no night textures. The VFR flights over these cities are mostly a day time affair anyway.

  • More than 1,050 major buildings included
  • 454,500 (!) autogen objects placed realistically
  • Highly detailed and customized mesh terrain
  • An incredible number of 150 helipads! Among them a few well-known ones as:
    • LAPD Hooper Heliport (largest rooftop heliport in the world. Set location of the "BlueThunder" movie and series)
    • US Bank Helipad (world's highest rooftop helipad, see this BMW movie)
    • Queen Mary Heliport
    • Catalina Air-Sea Terminal Heliport
    • Catalina Island Pebbly Beach Seaplane Base and Heliport
  • Major airports in and around the city are covered with new high res ground images with customized mesh terrain (no new building structures added with the exception of KAVX):

    • 30 times as many helipads!
    • More than 2 times as many airports!
    • More than 5 times as many autogen objects!
    • More than 3 times as many major buildings!
  • Includes a separate Scenery Density Tool, which makes this highly detailed scenery enjoyable on slower systems as well!

Awards / Reviews:

Conclusion by Mutley's Hangar:
"The U.S. Cities Los Angeles scenery gives you a really good opportunity to discover the various scenic delights of L.A. and its surrounding area. Although I found it somewhat of a challenge at first, I ended up enjoying the experience, as I'm sure you will too. So, if you've a mind to visit L.A. either in the real or virtual world, this add-on scenery from LimeSim and Aerosoft would be a worthwhile investment."

Conclusion by FlightSim.com:
"The wide area of Aerosoft's Los Angeles X scenery, its plentiful surface features, and its detailed buildings enable unlimited opportunities for visual navigation and sightseeing. The scenery reflects considerable attention to detail and accuracy as well as to frame rates. I enjoyed reviewing Los Angeles X, and I believe simulating flights with this scenery would be enjoyable, too. I don't usually comment on price because value is perceived differently by various people, but I was surprised by Aerosoft's asking price for all this scenery."
