The team at Leonardo Softhouse has shared some new information regarding their Fly the Maddog X. Firstly, the team has confirmed that a new hotfix has been released that adds Prepar3D v5.2 compatibility, and secondly, we have some new previews of the aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Following on from the release of Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v5.2 yesterday, Leonardo Softhouse are one of the first aircraft developers to ensure their aircraft are compatible with the new version of the simulator. The new Open Beta hotfix (2.0b801) was released for all models of the Maddog X. This new version not only adds compatibility, but also minor bug fixing and a new bird strike failure, also.
In the same forum post, the team shared some initial progress on the Microsoft Flight Simulator version of the aircraft. Recent SDK updates have enabled the team to be a lot more “optimistic” about the future of the Maddog in the simulator. They say that a lot of work has been done, but plenty remains for the team. However, Leonardo Softhouse shared a couple of screenshots to demonstrate the progress being made.
The Fly the Maddog X is one of our favourite aircraft in Prepar3D and has been updated continuously since it originally released. You can buy the Prepar3D version (64-bit) from simMarket for €95.00. We’ll be sure to continue following the development of the Microsoft Flight Simulator version and update you as we can.
