REVIEW: FSX LANDCLASS BATTLE PART 6

HVALVIK/STREYMNES, FØROYAR (FAROE ISLANDS)

Faroe_Google

The Faroe Islands lies north of Britain, half way between Norway and Iceland and is part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It is well known for its one and only  airport, Vágar, which is often very challenging to land on because of the treacherous North Atlantic Weather. The Faroes are well knwon for its unique landscape of grass-covered mountains and hills almost completely deprived of trees. Some even call it the Falklands of the North.

In FSX this landscape has been ill treated. Streymnes is left out and there is way too much vegetation.

Faroe_p3d

Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D team clearly has little knowledge of these islands. The populated areas are a tad better depicted, but again, the vegetation is wrong wrong wrong.

Faroe_SceneryTech

Scenerytech isn’t really an upgrade over the default FSX/P3D scenery. Slightly different, but still highly inaccurate.

Faroe_XClass

Cloud9’s XClass have done a better job with the landscape, but misses the fact that there should be a few villages surrounding the narrow strait.

None of the products does a very good job with the Faroes and can’t be called an upgrade over the default FSX/P3D scenery. While XClass does the best job in terms of vegetation, the lack of villages keeps it from being any better than Scenrytech’s horrible rendering.
