As a general rule it looks great. I just wish the default facades were a little bit more interesting.

Also, Ipacs would do the aerofly scenery scene a great favor by allowing the Sim to create unique shapes not necessarily made up of rectangles and squares.

Yeah, the NSW Government donated it to Tassie, now in Hobart.

I did not know Hobart has any part of that monorail operating! Sydney is an interesting place. I worked in the Sydney GPO in the late 60's and remember when Goldfields House was built. As you come into Circular Quay on a ferry you could see the AMP building on the left of all the ferry docks and the new and similarly sized Goldfields House construction on the right. Goldfields House has now been torn down in yet another redevelopment project. To me the monorail was an attractive and neat way to see the city sights and I lamented its passing in 2013. City skylines are forever changing these days.

Indeed. I am enjoying the Lofoten freeware but WITHOUT the cultivation because it only makes things look ugly. The buildings all look dull and similar and stick out of the scenery way too much, regardless of the time of day. It's far nicer and feels more realistic to fly above 4500 and higher and enjoy the photoreal textures.

Thank you for showing up my typo; I overlooked it completely, probably I was thinking about a beautiful girl called Sidney  😉 .

Unfortunately I'm not allowed to correct it.  Not anymore !

Here is a good one with its famous Opera House:

I cheered ...... & will also cheer when the Cahill Expressway over the Quay is removed (the top level road at least).
