The biggest island and the one that gives the name to the Hawaiian islands chain, is now available in a new version where the clouds are gone forever of the ground textures. Now we can enjoy the complete archipelago in a more inmersive way, without the annoying white spots that can ruin the photoreal experience.

This is a vast and tedious task, but the results are worth it. If you like this content, please consider to make a donation through the Plus version of the scenery to support our developments. It really makes a difference, letting us to manage the project through our own website, providing fast downloads and to keep improving it.
In this case the Plus version includes snow during January on the top of the shield volcanoes Mauna Kea (4,207 m) and the Mauna Loa (4,169 m), and giving life to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park! Now you can find the Kilauea still active, with custom effects, spewing eruptions of hot ash and lava, and steam in the coast where the lava flows to the sea and new land is created.

If you have the previous version of the Big Island (v.0.93) and you want to apply this new one (v.0.95), uninstall it first through the Windows Control Panel – Uninstall or Change a Program option, or go to the scenery folder and click the “unins000” executable. Once the new version is installed follow the included readme instructions to add correctly the extra content available in the Plus version.
I´ll be sending the keys for the Plus version during this weekend but you can ask it first through our mail and I will answer as soon as I can:
