FSLabs Updates A320X for FSX

airfrance-fslabs

We’ve been commenting that FSLabs have been working hard on an update to fix some user related issues as well as continue to improve the already immersive aircraft. Today, Lefteris has released the update for their A320-X to v 1.0.1.184 for FSX. This update is massive and I’ve done my best to summarise some of the key elements below.

The Aircraft Cabin has now been made truly immersive now thanks to safety demons being played, and the ‘Cabin Ready’ memo now being variable depending on how many passengers are onboard. The same logic also applies to landing, so you need to make sure the cabin is secure before you take off or land (or your poor crew will go flying…) Other elements have also been included to help with the immersion.

With winter coming, low visibility is more common. Now with the update, when flying through fog or thick cloud, you’ll see landing light beams as well as glare from the aircraft lights reflect inside the cockpit.

Flare law, common feedback from pilots and users, has been refined based on new algorithms from Elevator and Aileron Computers. The team now hope that this is now true to life.

Something I think is pretty cool is the newly implemented ATSU, which now adds the ability to import flight plans from several sources including FSX default, Simbrief and PFPX.

Also you can now request ATIS messages from VATSIM or IVAO connections and are displayed in the MCDU! You can also request METAR reports also through a revamped AOC service. The data can be requested from AS16, ASN, VATSIM, IVAO or NOAA. Amazing!

Before I go onto the list of changes, Service Pack 1 is still going to include important information such as detailed winds and secondary flight plan and further improve ground handling. Of course, the Prepar3d version will be out beforehand (which is in final beta testing)

To download the new update, v1.0.1.184, just head over to Flight Sim Labs redownload area with the order ID, serial and email. Once you have downloaded the .zip file, extract both installers, uninstall previous v1.0.1.173 Binaries and Resources and install the new ones as per our Installation Instructions here.
