After months of waiting and anticipation, FSLabs has released their A320-X for Prepar3D V4. The new version of the A320-X includes more than just 64-bit compatibility for the professional sim.
Version 188.8.131.52 provides all new textures, sounds, fixes and features that will enhance your Airbus flying further than ever before. You can read the full list of changes here.
Lefteris wrote on the forums a few notes that you’ll need to be aware of.
First things first, if you already purchased the A320-X for Prepar3D V3, then the 64-bit version will be available free of charge. You’ll just need to provide your purchase details when ordering.
With the sim now in 64-bit you will need a new version of FSL Spotlights which is only compatible with P3DV4. You’ll be able to have dynamic lighting in the virtual cockpit as well as on the external model.
If you’re still using FSX or P3Dv3, then you can expect some of the changes and fixes to be rolled out to your versions soon enough. Some things like the higher definition textures and sound system won’t be coming due to the constraints of 32-bit. Going forward, FSLabs will release Service pack 1 for both 32 and 64-bit sims, but expect that will be the last update for the older sims.
Finally, those who are awaiting home cockpit functionality and the professional version, the team wants to reassure you that it’s coming and that they have been demonstrating it during various flight sim shows.
For now, make sure you go ahead and download the A320-X now from your account and enjoy the plane in glorious 64-bits. We can’t wait to see your screenshots.
