Since the release of Leonardo Softhouse Fly the Maddog earlier this year, the team has gone noticeably quiet. Outside of some updates here and there, the team hasn’t really revealed what they’re working on. But today it changes with the latest year forum post from the team.
In Stefano’s post, he realizes how good they are, but for good reason. Over the past few months, the team has been working on a new “bridge” application that will enable more features and functionality to overcome some of the limitations of working within MSFS. Known as “MDClient”, this new bridge allows for adding ACARS pages, CPDLC functionality, full integration with GSX Pro, and more. allows
A new update for Fly the Maddog in Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently in beta testing and is expected to be released in the next few weeks.
What’s also exciting about this new information is that the team can refocus their efforts on bringing MD-88 and MD-83 into the simulator. There’s no further information on these at the moment, but we’ll be sure to keep our eyes open.
