NEWS! - Developer Update : MLAeroDG updates to X-Plane12


MLADG XP12 update News! header.jpg


With the conversion to a new X-Plane Simulator version, in this case X-Plane 12. It can in most circumstances create a bit of a confusion. Like in life, developers can come and go, a lot just die.


So many old school developers can also leave you hanging. If an aircraft has been not updated or upgraded to a current simulator version, then what if for the next one in the revolution? So you pray and hope that they will keep your beloved machine flying for at least another term.


In MLADG's case or ML Aero Design Group... he has been quiet for a few years with no updates or changes to his aircraft, of which are mostly WW2 era aircraft. But no... he's back and (thankfully) updated four of his aircraft to X-Plane 12, so somewhere out there, there is still a god.


In order here are the aircraft updated to X-Plane 12 (and the X-Plane 11 version is also included in each package), they are:


Messerschmitt Me 109 Bf

Package includes:
  • detailed Model of the Messerschmitt Me-109 G-2
  • new Me-109 G-10 variant included
  • fully implemented virtual cockpit with almost every switch functional
  • detailed outside model
  • custom night lighting
  • Tropical version of the plane included
  • 3 liveries (including a paint kit)
  • 4k textures for the outside model

The model reproduces the Bf 109 G2 version:
  • V12 DB605 engine with 1455 hp
  • service ceiling 11600 m
  • 685 km/h at 7400 m
  • VFR equipped


The Messerschmidtt Bf 109 was the most produced fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 airframes produced from 1936 up to April 1945.  It was one of the first truly modern fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine.
The Bf 109 first saw operational service during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II, during which time it was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force.
