Fuerteventura Scenery MSFS

(4 customer reviews)

This add-on replaces the default MSFS ground textures on Fuerteventura and Isla de Lobos with custom high-resolution color-corrected aerial imagery. It also improves the scenery in several ways and includes optional mesh.

1. Aerial Imagery

  • 3 versions with different resolutions and files sizes – you decide which you would like to use and you can switch between versions anytime
    • Version “Standard” (14.6 GB): high resolution, best ratio between sharpness of textures and file size – recommended for the majority of users
    • Version “Premium” (24.8 GB): ultra-high resolution at densely populated areas (see below) – recommended if you want to fly really low over cities and beaches
    • Version “Premium Plus” (47.9 GB): very high resolution and ultra-high resolution at densely populated areas (see below) – recommended for the absolute best experience
  • Improvements over the default MSFS ground textures include:
    • realistic manual color correction that brings Fuerteventura to life
    • optimization for realistic display in MSFS lighting conditions
    • sharper image with more visible details (e.g. rock structure)
    • no green tint, especially no green roads and no green sand
    • no clouds visible on the ground
    • higher resolution (depending on the version used)
  • Ultra-high resolution areas of the "Premium" and "Premium Plus" versions:
    • Corralejo (town and dune landscape), Costa Calma, Las Playitas and Gran Tarajal
    • along the coast from Puerto del Rosario to Las Salinas including the airport and golf clubs
    • along the coast from Jandía to Morro Jable

2. Mesh (DEM)

  • 3 versions with resolutions of 2 m, 4 m and 10 m – you choose the best for your hardware and graphics settings
  • Mesh for the airports is included and has been adjusted to eliminate bumps on the ground
  • Please note: This mesh is an experimental feature. While scenery and textures are very FPS friendly, this mesh uses more hardware resources, especially the 2 m version. All of the above screenshots were taken with the 2 m mesh add-on.

3. Scenery

  • Upgraded Ports
    • added docks and thousands of hand-placed motorboats, sailboats, yachts, catamarans and ships to all ports on Fuerteventura
    • added cranes to the cargo area of Puerto del Rosario
    • placed one cruise ship with night lighting and a helipad that you can land on in Puerto del Rosario
  • Enhanced Night Lighting
    • added night lighting to all ports and piers
    • hotel areas, pools, plazas, sports facilities, beach promenades, etc. are now illuminated at night
    • added missing street lights in Morro Jable
  • Appropriate Vegetation
    • added palm trees and other typical vegetation to the cities
    • replaced trees at Playa del Matorral with typical dune vegetation
    • improved vegetation to match with the aerial imagery (e.g. bushes instead of trees in rocky areas)
    • removed incorrectly placed trees along the coast
  • Accurate Coastline
    • changed the deep lake at Playa de Sotavento de Jandía to a lagoon
    • applied a custom water mask to match the course of the simulator's ocean water with the coastline on the aerial imagery
    • beaches, islets, sandbars and other parts of the coast that were partly underwater are now completely visible giving the coastline a more defined look
  • Other Improvements
    • added 5 lighthouses (World Update 3 has to be installed for them to be visible)
    • removed large warehouses in hotel areas
    • removed incorrectly placed buildings on top of fields, pools, sports facilities, etc.

Aerial imagery, mesh and scenery are put together as separate add-ons and can be used independently of one another.


This add-on is compatible with the airport for MSFS by MK-Studios (no changes to the files necessary anymore).

    Absolutely amazing! Really good quality! Almost photo realistic!

    I started with the Lanzarote 8GB version from Island Creations and was delighted about the change in colour and detail the original scenery in MSFS doesn’t offer. However, even more impressive is the premium version with greater resolution. Here is where not only the more natural colours come to benefit but the finer resolution, too, in regard to road lines (which are disturbingly interrupted in the lower resolution version) and outlines of satellite imagery. As VR enthusiast, I can only talk for those who enjoy a 4K resolution like myself with P8KX or G2, VR headsets with lower resolution might not see the difference so much and surely depends on the type of GPU used. The fact that the scenery is way more natural in colour and details, where anyone who likes to be stunned by the beauty of these islands and this includes the whole set of Island Creations so far, makes the expense a worth while investment. It’s like going on holiday for a few hours of exploration. I really look forward to see the last 2 islands of the Canaries still missing with La Palma and Gran Canaria. It would be fab if these updates come soon.

    Excellent product! Fuerteventura is tranformed in certain areas, especially along the coast near Corralejo, where the downtown areas are crisp and are a joy to fly over. There is an overall sense of coherency with this product, with no deviation in color and hue. And the absence of green roads makes this add-on worth the price alone. With that said, there are areas where the resolution should be higher, but overall it’s an excellent add-on and improves the scenery considerably. The autogen objects also populate nicely on the terrain, and the default digital elevation model just seems to conform better with this ortho. Based on my experience with this product, I’ll be purchasing the Lanzarote product because I love flying over the Canary Islands. Great work, Island Creations! Please offer a new Ortho for La Palma!

    I love this island and this brings it to life. Thanks for such a cool addon!
    Streets could be a bit more HighRes, but overall a very quality package for the MSFS2020.
