Seafront Simulations continues to bring the seas to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Following a series of regional releases that have been focused in places such as the Virgin Islands, the Balearic Islands, or the UK, the team is now going into the Pacific with a product dedicated to Hawaii, in the United States. Besides, it’s the first product to feature the recently-teased capability to land in maritime ships!
Hawaii needs to introduction, as it’s one of the most famous archipelagos in the world. With bustling harbor activity and plenty of fantastic sightseeing opportunities, it’s the perfect target for a Seafront Simulations intervention. Furthermore, as the home to the US Pacific Fleet, there are plenty of military ships nearby that MSFS simmers can use in offshore operations.
This is precisely the new feature Seafront Simulations is looking to implement for the first time with Vessels: The Hawaiian Islands: moving ships with landable hard decks! MSFS simmers will find US Navy and tanker vessels off the coast of Hawaii and have the chance to land on them, just as we saw during an early preview aboard an H145 helicopter.
As usual, this scenery also introduces thousands of different boats to the ports and marinas of the Hawaiian islands, significantly enhancing the realism and immersion of flying near bodies of water in MSFS. Expect to see a wide variety of maritime vessels going about their lives, from small boats to yachts, tankers, and many more.
Vessels: The Hawaiian Islands is out now on Orbx and in the Marketplace!
