CLS/Flight1 Super 80 & CLS/Leonardo Maddog Merge

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Not sure how many people have been looking for a merge like this but after some major trial & error I have merged the two respective planes! Both merges are fully working and retain the characteristics and panels of the Flight 1 Super 80/Leonardo Maddog with the exterior of the CLS MD-80 (which in my opinion is the best looking model out there). I have been playing around with this for about 2 years honestly it really wasn't hard when you look at the task, I mostly had to take a logical approach to the whole thing which revealed to me the error that has been holding the whole thing back.

 

For now I am at a stable build on both planes with just the 2D Panels in use. I have left out the VC part for now because in order to keep the CLS model from going into a sorta protection mode (Landing Gears Disappear)you must leave some VC entries in the planes panel.cfg. I should get this to work in the near future but for now its good without it.

 

Now there are only two downfalls to this merge, I see them as small tradeoffs for a great model and panel matchup like this.

 

When using the Leonardo Maddog Merge you will have the landing lights on the wing stuck to on because of the way the developer made the plane. Its coded in a way which sends a continuous Landing Light On command to FS causing the Landing Lights on the model to redeploy if you try to retract them. I have learned to deal with it since it doesn't really affect anything. Maybe someone can find a work around for this in the future.

 

When using the Flight 1 Super 80 with this plane the only downfall is the occasional Appcrash, I have only experienced it happening when I reloaded the plane after an edit without selecting another plane before it. This wasn't too much of a downfall.

 

I have only tested these merges on my own setup so I am unsure how it will go on others, All in All I will eventually post the merges once I figure out how to write up a guide that isn't extremely complicated since I can't actually upload the files.
