Developer ToLiss has confirmed that their A319 and their A321 aircraft are now both compatible with the X-Plane 11 Vulkan API engine. Alongside that, the A319 has seen a significant improvement as part of the update including changes to the FMGS.
The A319 in particular saw a large number of changes including a complete rework of the flight path computation (in line with the A321) along with the addition of FIX pages, SECONDARY FLIGHT PLAN, and the addition of a standby compass and opening cockpit doors.
Both aircraft have seen improvements in the PFD colourisation, smoother autopilot functionality and also a rework of the EPR values for the IAE engines. Because both aircraft are now Vulkan compatible, they are also improved performance-wise.
Despite this update adding Vulkan compatibility, the update still functions with these updates for those using OpenGL still or have yet to update to X-Plane 11.50’s beta program.
The update can be installed via the ToLiss auto update tool found within the product.
– Complete rework of the flight path computation backbone for more accurate computed path
– Addition of the FIX INFO page
– Addition of the SECONDARY FLIGHT PLAN
– FMGS now supports temporary flight plans on ground, airways to airways intersection computation and lots more
– Addition of standby compass and opening cockpit door.
– Reorganization of the ISCS for more intuitive operation.
– Addition of ToteDeMacs Textures as baseline
A319 and A321 Changes
– Rework of PFD colours and Landing system symbology
– Added a warning, if experimental flight model is on, to ensure you switch it off and get the right performance
– Adapted aircraft to allow sounds and ground vehicles when using XP11.50 Vulkan including frame rate improvements
– Pause at T/D now stops one minute before reaching the T/D.
– Smoother FD and AP behaviour in managed descent.
