About this scenery
Developed by Nick Cheng, the latest version of Real Taipei City X is not only containing the two major airports in Taipei, RCTP and RCSS, but also the landscape and the landmarks of the Taipei City. You will see the Taipei 101 Tower, National Palace Museum and more. The level of details and complexity are far beyond those freewares in the market. Compared with the previous versions, this v17.01 is much more fps friendly and OOS situation has been significantly reduced. Honestly, with this level of details, I would not expect the OOS will be completely disappeared. Nevertheless, it is falling into the acceptable level.
Again, this is a freeware, why don’t you have a try?
