123263426 126778999193686 7966913238295950901 O

Over the Easter weekend, FlyByWire Simulations released a new update to its popular freeware aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The new update sees the team finally depart from requiring the default Asobo A320neo within the simulator and has now been packaged as a standalone product.

The developers say this package separation is also known as a “fork” and will only affect new versions of the development and experimental branches of the aircraft release. Following on from a short testing period, version 0.6.0 will release making it a stable release as a standalone package. This has been done with the approval of Microsoft and also means that in the future, that the A32NX will be made available through the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace free of charge.

As a result of this change, it does mean that liveries will need to be converted by their respective authors to ensure it’s compatible with the FlyByWire Simulations A32NX aircraft. The team are also going further and creating a tool that will be able to convert selected paints.

The FlyByWire Simulations team continue to impress the flight simulation community with freely made updates for the aircraft modification.
