In a recent dev blog update from the team, TFDi Designs has shared with us a progress update for their MD-11 accompanied by some new renders of the cockpit model, a changelog for the latest PACX update, and a small maintenance fix for their 717.

The systems programmer at TFDi Design is currently working on developing the MD-11’s electrical systems. The buses, generators, relays, switches, loads, and overall interconnection mesh have been coded independently and now the focus will be on integrating those systems to operate synchronously. Following the completion of those efforts, attention will be given to developing buttons event handling. When all else is working, the final objective will be to create and implement the logic for switching relays in automatic mode.
