Looks like a lot of the POIs are famous bridges. There are also a number of national landmarks (both man made and natural) added and some aviation related stuff (Kennedy Space Center, Wright Brothers landmark, plane graveyard in the desert).

Once you download the USA pack they all show up on the world map.

Yes, kind of!



There was still a weird squeak and the plane shook and hit the ground when I flew through it one way, but the other way it was fine. Clearly not perfect but at least they are recognizing that you can actually fly under bridges in real life. Maybe they will keep improving it. Niagara Falls looks pretty good, incidentally.

Of course most bridges still look like this. Idk why they can't just extrude the roadbed and leave it empty underneath. It's really not that hard



Also they did put in the visitor's center at Cape Canaveral, and it looks neat,



but all of the actual space launch facilities are still generic brick shithouses where the launch pads should be. Look at the VAB. Look what they did to my boy



Huh. When I flew by the VAB right after the game launched it was a big building. Not detailed but correct size. The "high rationalization" they added this patch must have shrunk it.

Looks like AOPA is using FS2020 to create their accident investigation videos now.
