FSLabs Releases Update v5.0.1.100 For A320-X

A320 V5 (1)

FlightSimLabs has released the latest update for their flagship product, the A320-X. The update brings with it a myriad of changes, most notable being compatibility with Lockheed Martins Prepar3D Version 5. FSLabs’ Lefteris Kalamaras took to the company forums to announce the update and a full changelog.

Along with major performance improvements, the move of the A320-X to P3D Version 5 is said to bring a full rework of the external texturing using PBR, newly tuned lighting effects and dynamic window blinds that react according to the position of the sun.

It is worth noting that due to the reworking of the external textures, users are required to redownload their liveries due to the paintkit being updated to take full advantage of this new technology.

v5.0.1.100 of the A320-X is now available for both Prepar3D Verison 4 and Version 5 over on the downloads page. Version 4 users can also find v4.01.100 of the A319-X and A321-X on the same page with P3D Version 5 updates for these products coming soon. Both of these updates are free of charge.

For more from Flight Sim Labs, as well as a complete list of all P3D Version 5 compatible addons, stay tuned to FSElite.
