Never heard of it. I'd rather want the ORBX version, not sure why ORBX is not doing much for Alaska in MSFS.

Never heard of them but looks like their X-plane version of Northern Sky Studio Ketchikan came out first (back in Aug 7/2018 and now a port over to MSFS.

Actually those Sim Market pics looks very nice if they are true for this product.

Looks good from the pic. I put in a free addon for PAKT ... it doesn't really do anything for the airport and "is" not the way it "is". I'm not going to spend much money on 2020 until it becomes a lot more predictable. But we should be watching all of these.  There are some amazing additions that do look pretty good "Key West" is one I have enjoyed in 2020 and it only about $7.  (Not bad for a little experiment).

Check with Dex.  He has that add-on and thought it was pretty good.  Northern Sky is just one guy who put out PAKT for X-Plane and has ported it to MSFS2020.  In my opinion, anything installed for Southern Alaska may become outdated once Asobo or Orbx or somebody does a comprehensive update to the area.  However, until then (who knows when that is) it might be worthwhile.

I have both the ORBX PAKT for P3D and the Northern Sky for X-Plane, and I will say Northern Sky is head and shoulders better than ORBX.  His work is fantastic.  I love that scenery.  I will be buying his and bypassing orbx version.

I have the impression that the communication between Asobo and ORBX (and any other 3PDs) is much better than between ORBX and LM.

I might be wrong, though.
