The Azores (Açores) are an archipelago and popular holiday destination in the mid-Atlantic which are home to dramatic landscapes, fishing villages and green countryside. The Azores are made up of 9 main islands with the largest city being Ponta Delgada on the island of São Miguel which is also home to some large volcanic lakes and a large commercial port. Pico on the other hand is home to the spectacular 2,351m Mount Pico which is a recommended visit after a takeoff from the local Aeroporto Do Pico (LPPI).
We have lovingly recreated the many marinas, ports and harbours that skirt the coastline of these islands and provide vital tourist and commercial trade to the local area.
This scenery covers the coastline of all 9 main islands from Ilha das Flores and Corvo, to the west; Graciosa, Terceira, São Jorge, Pico, and Faial in the centre; and São Miguel, Santa Maria, and the Formigas islets to the east. Each has its own airport so are great for island hopping low level flights.
This pack introduces over 500 moving leisure and commercial vessels near and around the islands together with moving, landable cruise ships and thousands of static vessels filling the many ports and marinas. You will also find local ferry services here operating their usual routes. The scenery further includes watermasks in the main areas as well as fixes to vegetation and water/terrain elevation.
