FlyByWire’s recreation of the legendary Airbus A380 for Microsoft Flight Simulator has not been mentioned publicly in a bit. Whilst some may have started thinking that the developers abandoned the project, Iceman from FlyByWire proved us wrong with a set of new previews showcasing the flight deck of the beautiful A380 for MSFS.
As he said, this time showing off the insane level of detail the team has been putting into texturing. The team also however made progress with animations, testing the systems, and developing avionics behind the scenes.
The previews are showcasing the MCP panel, which is used to control the autopilot, and the PFD display, which is dedicated to displaying flight information. If we take a closer look, we can notice that the team has put a lot of attention to the textures, assuming from the present wear and tear details.
Iceman did not detail the release timeframe, thus it remains unknown. The FlyByWire Simulations’ A380X for MSFS is going to be freeware for anyone to download when ready.
