Just bought xplane 11 last night and the first thing I did was take off out of JFK and head to NYC to see what it looked like.
The ride there was nice but the city is lacking so many landmarks
Do these have to be bought as addons?

Are all the cities like this?

I love the feel of the sim and the flight felt great but I also want to fly in an accurate environment.

Any help on getting the sim to look like the real thing would be appreciated.

Yes most cities in X Plane are just made of all autogen I believe. In their preview video of what's to come at Flightsimcon they did show some screens of worldwide landmarks and well known buildings so it's coming.

What I hope they do eventually is bring a version of their Airport Scenery Gateway lego brick airport creation method to building cities. Let the community build the cities and have some generic autogen to choose from and everyone do their hometown.

Why men throw their lives away attacking an armed Witcher... I'll never know. Something wrong with my face?
