Leonardo Software House, in concomitanza dell'update del Maddog per Prepar3D 5.2, ha rilasciato due nuovi screen del celebre Md80 per MSFS.
Ancora molto il lavoro da fare ma il progetto è in avanzamento
"Answering one of the most asked questions, yes we're progressing with the FS2020 SDK, starting to see the first results in the new platform and thus allowing us to be a lot more optimistic about the future of the Maddog in Flight Simulator... there is a lot of work to be done and it's a long way to go, so obviously no ETA. I'll drop these two screenshots for your viewing pleasure"
Hello Captains, weve just uploaded an Open Beta hotfix for the current official 2.0b794 version, for both P3D v4 and P3D v5 versions (-82 and -83/-88). Free for all customers, this hotfix brings Fly the Maddog X to version 2.0b801 adding latest Prepar3D v5.2 compatibility with some minor bugfixin...
Lockheed Martin has surprised the community and has released Prepar3D v5.2. This newest version of Prepar3D has a massive changelog that addresses a lot of issues with the enhanced atmospherics engine
"The changelog is fairly extensive, with a lot of focus on the Enhanced Atmospherics engine and lighting. According to the changelog, Enhanced Atmospherics can be used with legacy clouds, along with improvements to memory usage, precipitation and lighting. In addition, they have also addressed how clouds in EA are rendered (less of a gird effect) and several other improvements that have been reported since version 5.1.
Whilst the update is focused on the environmental effects, there has also been additional improvements to road light settings, and particles can now be dynamically lit. Virtual Reality has also seen numerous improvements, whilst support for headsets has been extended to include the VRgineers XTAL VR and the Varjo XR-3 VR headset."
It's been no secret that PMDG has been working on the Microsoft Flight Simulator platform, but little has been said about how development has been going. We saw the 737 in the simulator last year
"The DC-6 will be the first release from PMDG for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Robert suggests that a release could be within the next few weeks. Considering that PMDG development cycles are usually fairly long, this is a huge change of pace from the development team."
Randazzo ha anche detto che il 737 dovrebbe essere rilasciato entro l'anno e a seguire 777 e 747 (previsti entro inizio 2022)
"Currently we are working on the DC-6 and the 737 product lines, and Vin is building out the new flight deck for the 777. We fully expect to have the DC-6 and 737's released this year, with a remote possibility of the 777 releasing as well by year end, and the 747...
