On a whim, I bought the sim three or four days ago, after reading about how awesome it is for VR. Day before yesterday, I flew the EC135 around San Francisco, taking off from the Alcatraz helipad. My executive summary is that it was probably the best heli sim experience I've ever had. I know The City a bit, since I've lived just south of it (in San Jose) for decades, and was very impressed with much (but not all! Esp, as I moved north or south) of the detail. I come from years of MSFS, P3D, X-Plane (which I gave up on quite a while ago), and DCS. I've barely scratched the surface of the EC's systems but I am really looking forward to digging in more. The PFD and other instruments that I have used are just really well done.
I have a question: what area in the default scenery gives the best terrain resolution? E.g. is that represented by downtown SF? Having spent some time in MSFS2020 I am really spoiled about terrain, but at least in SF, FS 2 is much better than I expected (given what seems to be a relatively small dev team).
Another question -- does the Monterey, CA airport add-on include a detailed Carmel/Carmel Valley? I find the module to be pretty spendy at $30, but if it has at least Carmel-by-the-Sea modeled decently, I would be tempted.
