FS2Crew have issued a new update for the Maddog X Reboot. Version 1.8 is a relatively small update which sees a few changes due to the recently released FlythemaddogX update from Leonardo Softhouse.

Version 1.8 sees the APU start-up logic changed along with various user options for the ASDEX, ACARS and also the autothrust. All the options need to be manually changed and the instructions on how to do so are down below.

You can pick up the Maddog X Reboot from FS2Crew for €34.95. If you are a previous owner of a FS2Crew product, you can use code DOGX to get €5 off.

In other FS2Crew news, they confirmed that work is on-going to release a FlightSimLabs A320 Family version very soon, with development now 90% complete. You can read those details in our previous article.

Leonardo Softhouse FlythemaddogX MD-82 Updated (SP1b351)

47681757 1857796607679921 3512849001164570624 O.jpg.763d55cf5bcec802b83f966b432417ee

The news I know many of you have been waiting for: Leonardo Softhouse has updated their FlythemaddogX MD-82 for both 32-bit simulators and 64-bit sims. As we previously covered, the new update brings a wealth of new features and bug fixes. One of those updates for the P3D v4.4 version is the inclusion of PBR materials on the exterior of the aircraft as well as some native PBR liveries.

The other key update this new version brings is the enhanced icing simulation. If you leave your aircraft in cold conditions, snow and ice will build upon your aircraft, which impact the aerodynamics of the aircraft. Realistic hold overtimes after de-icing will also be simulated, and the 64-bit version also integrates Active Sky and GSX Level 2 for icing simulation. Furthermore, the P3Dv4.x version will enable users to visually see icing on their aircraft.

Other fixes include an issue with the batter not discharging, improved FMS fuel predictions during longer flights and a few other minor bugfixes.

You can grab the update one of two ways:

Downloading a full new version from SimMarket, or if you’re a registered forum member, you can get it direct from the forums. If you don’t own the FlythemaddogX yet, you can purchase it from SimMarket (32-Bit Version: €57.00 // 64-Bit Version: €70.00).

It was also confirmed that the extension products, the MD-83 and the MD-88 will be released tomorrow, Sunday 23rd December 2018.
