48366422 10156305220849690 6856961613581254656 O.jpg.a22203953e6532d7913a9df41e4cdaac

Leonardo Softhouse has released the MD-83/88 expansion pack to their popular FlythemaddogX MD-82 series. The new expansion pack includes both the MD-83 and MD-88 in a single package. Users will get to experience the longer range and higher density variants of the Maddog in affluent detail.

The expansion pack is more than just a visual update as it brings along with it the specific features and functionality the two aircraft types have. From the added engine option (JT8D-219) and accurate flight dynamics, it feels and looks like the real thing. Furthermore, additional equipment such as more fuel tanks and the fuel balance system ensures that you’re flying just as they do in the real world.

Just as the recent update added to the base pack, the expansion pack will also include the advanced icing model with visible effects on the external model and also impact the aerodynamics of your aircraft. Also, PBR texturing has been applied to these aircraft which is in addition to the new liveries included with the expansion. You can view the entire list of features and additions at the end of this article.

You can grab a hold of the MD-83-88 expansion pack over at simMarket for a price of €25.00 (Excl. VAT). The 64-bit FlythemaddogX MD-82 base pack is required prior to obtaining the expansion.

When the original base pack came out, we absolutely loved it and gave it 9.5/10. It’s gone on to be an even better aircraft since that review.
