Toronto Scenery

Recommended Posts

Been away for a few years... What is the best scenery for Toronto (YYZ) these days. Also what are some other worthwhile sceneries worth purchasing/downloading.

 

Any insight would be very helpful as my old FS friends are ignoring me..

 

Regards,

 

Ron

I currently use this freeware:

 

http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=105991

 

It's for FS9, but works well in FSX.

 

Blueprint has a payware version, I've never used it so can't really comment.

 

Oryxsim has a payware version coming, and it would seem that FlyTampa might also, but no official confirmation yet (lots of hinting though!)

I have BluePrint's version, but it's not up to the level of developers like Fly Tampa and FSDT. To BluePrint's credit, they announced a plan to modernize some of their existing products. If Fly Tampa comes out with Toronto, I will buy it. I haven't tried ORYXSIM yet.

 

As far as worldwide sceneries, you can't fail with FSDT or Fly Tampa. UK2000 is also great. Latin VFR is also bringing up their standards. I also recently tried Pacific Islands Simulation Jeju and Xiamen airports, and they look and work fantastic.

Hello,

 

For the FS9 freeware you mentioned, any modifications required to use in FSX? I downloaded and saw a couple of effect files. Are those compatible with FSX?

 

Thanks

Excellent Freeware, CYYZ 2007 (see link above), along with CYYZ Toronto City Centre.

 

You'll appreciate them both.

To the best of my knowledge, the 2007 YYZ freeware works without modifications...it's been a while since I installed it though so I may be forgetting something.

Fly Tampa recently put out a payware version of CYUL Montreal that looks very good. Also excellent nearby is the freeware Quebec Airport CYQB as well as the free Quebec City area with most of the major buildings.

I would not get the Blueprint CYYZ as it will not work with AES.  As an owner of some Blueprint airports, I have to say they need to step up their game more to be competitive.

 

These 2 developers are working on a CYYZ, if either works with AES I will buy the better of the 2.

What bugs me about flytampa is that I need AES to move the jet bridges. I don't want AES, I have GSX but they (flytampa) say doing it any other way then via AES isn't good enough.

 

So I'm leaning towards Orxysim.

I have a pre purchase with Oryxsim for CYYZ. I think they are getting close to release, but I am not sure it is going to be compatible with GSX (Which I have) as far as the jetways go, but the quality of the scenery in general look's pretty good compared to Blueprint.
