Leonardo FlytheMaddogX SP1 Open Beta Released

FlytheMaddogX has released their highly anticipated SP1 into open beta which brings a host of new features to the MD82. The team at Leonardo software has been working hard to make their Maddog product even better than it already was.

As mentioned, this product is an open beta which means there are still some issues to iron out before the full release comes out. The current known issues are as follows:

– there might be problems with add-on liveries (missing/duplicated textures in vc) – related info in the release notes.
– the user guide and the quick guide have not been updated yet, they will be available on the forum shortly.
– GSX Level 2 users: due limitations on the FSDT software at the moment it’s not possible to let GSX determine the status of the FWD stairs, so embark/disembark is available only with GSX stairs. The rear door isn’t available for embark/disembark operations since GSX does not provide this option yet. We are in touch with FSDT and as soon as they fix those things, we will update the Maddog X accordingly.
– Tomato Shade users: the 3D model has changed and is no more compatible with included profiles. This leads to SEVERE PERFORMANCE ISSUES which are not related to the Maddog X. Some testers reported that using R&D profile almost solved. Maddog X is developed in a standard P3D environment and we can’t be responsible for checking any non-standard add-on compatibility that might influence performance in your system.
– Other 3rd party add-on compatibility with this Service Pack 1 are detailed in the release notes.

If you wish to report any bugs or issues you find with this open beta you can submit these through Leonardo’s ticketing system.

This open beta can be accessed from the FlytheMaddog forums.

The changes that feature in SP1 are extensive; some of the most notable features include a complete cockpit re-style, updates to the internal and external models, updates to the engine behaviour which include variation in engine performance due to different climatic conditions and a host of updates to the load manager.

The full release notes for this product can be found in the installation file (they were a bit too extensive to fit into this post). Also included in the release notes is important information on how to install this update.

Having been using this update for a couple of weeks, I can say that it does bring some excellent improvements to what was already a very solid aircraft.
