The Fenix Simulations A320 has received its first update, just a few days after its initial launch. The new update addresses a number of community-found bugs and a handful of requests that improve on the high-fidelity A320 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Version 220.127.116.11 is the result of feedback left to the team following the release of the aircraft earlier this week.
One piece of common feedback revealed not long after launch was the lack of gamepad controller support. This has been fixed with this new update with default key binds working out of the box. Keyboard rudder support has been added, along with new keyboard throttle support.
The EFB also saw a few improvements as well. Some of the bugs with it glitching out have been fixed and rotation support for chart reading has been added. Also, if you use the EFB on an iOS device, you can now add it to your home screen for a full-screen experience.
For those on 4-core machines or low-end machines, performance has been improved. Speaking of performance, the contrails have been adjusted to reduce the impact. Performance improvements are due to be continued over the course of development for this plane.
Other bugs which have been addressed include an issue with anti-icing, the taxi lights turning off the cabin lighting and displays going haywire in some situations has also been fixed.
To update the Fenix Simulations A320, you can download a fresh installer from within your account or by clicking the notification icon from within the Fenix App on your desktop.
