From the Flight Simulator blog:

This World Update contains five brand-new photogrammetry cities – Cambridge, Oxford, Birmingham and Bristol – nearly 80 POIs, five new meticulously hand-crafted airports (Barra, Liverpool, Land’s End, Manchester-Barton and Out Skerries), as well as visual and logical improvements to 85 more area airports, improved digital elevation data across the U.K. and a trio of new activities.

Given that the other new photogrammetry city is London1, I don’t think this update is representative of the UK as a whole:

  • all five of the new photogrammetry cities are in England
  • three new airports are in England
  • two new airports are on Scottish islands
  • beyond better elevation data, there’s nothing new in Northern Ireland or Wales

Asobo might as well have said “we’re adding bucket loads of content to England, while making the hills better elsewhere”. Hopefully, the 80 POIs are better spread across the nations.

  1. I’m not sure why the screenshots Asobo have shared are rendered in such low resolution. They look terrible. ↩︎
