Making the hearts of bush-flying aficionados beat faster, iniScene, the in-house scenery development brand of famed developer iniBuilds, has released their rendition of Fox Islands for MSFS.
Located just to the northwest of Cathead Point near Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula, Fox Islands are a small island group located in the middle of Lake Michigan. The island group comprises two islands, North & South Fox Island, respectively, both uninhabited.
Today, Northern Fox Island forms part of what is known as the Beaver Islands State Wildlife Research Area. However, the Southern sibling is probably the most well-known of the two due to it harboring the South Fox Islands Light Station, a two-generation light station located on the island’s southern tip.
With both islands entirely surrounded by the lake, the only way to and from the island is by either boat or plane. If you visit by airplane, you can choose to land on either North Fox Island’s grass airstrip (6Y3) or South Fox Island’s gravel runway airfield (3MI2).
With the release of iniScene’s rendition of Fox Islands, users of MSFS can now enjoy an accurate rendition of both airfields within their sim. According to the developer, the scenery, in addition to featuring both island airfields, comes included with customized coastlines, custom 3d modeled assets, including an animated replication of South Fox Island’s famed light station. Additionally, the scenery also features a custom-created mesh and revised orthoimagery to improve the experienced immersion.
iniScene’s rendition of Fox Islands is now available for purchase for MSFS from the official iniBuilds store for €6.95 E.x. VAT.
