    Drzewiecki - Washington Landmarks MSFS

    Drzewiecki Design is a long-standing favorite in flight simulation. Since FS2004 they have been creating airport and cityscape sceneries all around the virtual world and are now the latest developer to arrive on Microsoft Flight Simulator.

    Recently they released Washington Landmarks which covers the entire Washington DC area with custom hand-built buildings made to match that of the real-world city.

    Today we'll be looking at Washington Landmarks and see what it adds to Microsoft Flight Simulator.

    Installation

    Installation of Washington Landmarks is simple. When purchasing from the FlightSim.Com Store, you are provided with a zip file. Run the installer, select your Community folder and it will do the rest.

    One benefit that Microsoft Flight Simulator has over its predecessors is that it does not require you to adjust any scenery library or other config files. As soon as you drag and drop, everything is done automatically, which is as simple as can be.

    Drzewiecki - Washington Landmarks MSFS

    Included is a three-page PDF manual which explains the history of Washington DC in some detail as well as information regarding the three airports that the scenery pack enhances. It is well worth a read to anyone interested in history or who wants to know more about what this add-on includes!

      Drzewiecki just keeps getting better. Beautiful work. It's amazing to fly over the city, looks so realistic.

      I agree that they did a great job. Interested to see if the next update, which is supposed to be a US update similar to the Japan update, will include this area. I already purchased this add-on, hope it's not overridden by the next Asobo update.

      "They???", "Trolling???" DD Stanislaw is the Washington DC scenery developer. I simply want the latest version if things change.

      Their stuff is great, I have NYC, but keep getting "out of memory" errors, which I can't seem to fix. So I may hold off.

      They could have done without putting that trader in the building, That alone stopped me from buying that scenery.

      A great true to life add-on. We spent a glorious week in DC 2 summers ago and this is exactly what we saw. For example, at night The Mall (with all the Smithsonian museums) is lit up beautifully, except for the Air & Space museum, but this is exactly how it looks at night. They could have slacked off on minor building, but they didn't. I could even spot our window in the hotel we stayed in, and the fire station on the first floor.

      Highly recommended!
