Editorial

Having had the pleasure of going to the Canary Islands myself in the past for a holiday, it was something that I really wanted to try and get used to using in flight simulation.

A bit of an issue for me over the years has been getting used to the way that flight simulation renders parts of the world that aren’t considered the “main” parts and for that reason it can kill off my appetite for exploring the planet. However, with this mod I could easily remove that problem and give myself easy access to a fresh new scenery package.

Once I installed and downloaded this package I was instantly impressed by the way that it handled itself.

The Looks

The graphical side of things, though, really captured my attention and impressed me with regards to how authentic it looked. It also really helped to produce a system that ensured the realism and scale of the isles was actually in sync.

Many mods do a good job with photoscenery but can be quite inaccurate with the way it’s all laid out and put together. Well, with this mod there was nothing like these problems; it made it much easier to actually enjoy looking at the scenery around me as I flew around.

The looks, then, was one of the most impressive elements for sure. It really helped to capture that style and format whilst also making it very easy for key parts of the region to come alive. From La Palma and La Gomera right through to Tenerife and the Gran Canaria you can find that everything here just goes together and fits like a glove.

If there was one thing that really stood out, though, it was the level of performance that this scenery package allowed.

The Performance

The performance was absolutely spot on – it looked wonderful when it was being used and done a great job of capturing the levels of realism that you would expect to see from a location like this. By working in favour of the world in terms of giving you so much more than before, I was really expecting a bit of a performance dip even though I was using a new machine.

Despite the immense detail that has been put into nearly every side of this area, the auto-gen coverage and the night textures included, you’ll find that this all looks absolutely spectacular from various points of view.

I was a major fan of the performance with very little cluttering or stuttering involved when flying. Aside from the sheer depth of the performance that it was capable of providing, though, the whole package just comes together in a deeply professional manner.

I would happily recommend this to others who want to come and see this part of the world redone to look the best that it possibly can. The fact this is for FS2004 is even more impressive, really showing you what hardware can be like when pushed to its limits.
