    Ready for a European holiday? Well nothing beats a European holiday like a trip to the island of Mallorca, a tourist hotspot for Europe, located in the beautiful Mediterranean off the east coast of Spain.

    Aerosoft

    As with most Aerosoft products for Flight Simulator, the Flight Simulator scenery add-on Mallorca X Evolution is very detailed and pretty well accurately represents its real-world counterpart. Mallorca X Evolution is the product of the SimWings team, who are the creators of such wonderful scenery like Anchorage X and Mega Airport London Heathrow, some top-notch sceneries.

    Mallorca Island

    Mallorca (or Majorca), is an autonomous island located in the Mediterranean off the east coast of Spain. Mallorca is a part of an island chain called the Balearic Islands located in the Balearic Sea in the Western Mediterranean. The Balearic Islands include Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The Mediterranean is the most popular tourist destination in the world because of the great weather and rich cultural history. Some of the most popular islands in this area are Majorca and Ibiza.

    Mallorca X Evolution Add-on

    Mallorca X Evolution covers the entire Island of Mallorca, which includes the major international airport Palma de Mallorca as well as the smaller airport Son Bonet and of course the rest of the Island of Mallorca. Photographic textures are used, and many objects are included like trees, houses, buildings, roads, boats, ports, dynamic traffic and other objects. The Island of Mallorca and the airport of Palma de Mallorca have been designed by previous flight simulator add-on companies. These previous sceneries have been quite enjoyable sceneries (Mallorca X and the older Palma de Mallorca airport scenery). I especially remember using the Palma de Mallorca scenery years ago for flight simulator and remembering it being a beautiful add-on. At the time the airport was so good looking I spent so much time on it I don't remember the fact that the airport was located on an island, I just spent my time flying into and out of the wonderfully created airport.

    The Mallorca X Evolution scenery is an updated scenery based upon the Mallorca X scenery and you will find that the Evolution version really lives up to its name.

      Thank you for this great review. Can I ask if it supports FSX Steam Edition and if it's DX10 preview compatible?

      From the product's features it says it supports DX10 (it doesn't specify preview or not) and says you may need the DX10-Fixer 2.7/Steve's Fixer for the non safe-gate model so go ahead and get the Fixer anyways. It is compatible with FSX Steam Edition as well!
