ToLiss Releases New Update for A319


Aircraft developer ToLiss has released a brand new update for the A319 on X-Plane 11. The officially licensed aircraft will first see a name change from ToLiss 319 to Airbus A319 by ToLiss. Some of the larger changes between version 1.3.1 and version 1.3.2 will include a large reduction in CPU and GPU workload, which will help users with performance. Furthermore, there have been changes with the texturing and 3D work, batter startup now includes a delay on the battery charge limiters and also the MCDU has a small predefined delay for realism.

In addition, there have been a range of bug fixes, including a crash with the FMS when changing SIDs, fixed the behaviour when pulling the SPD knob after selecting the desired target speed and also making sure that the trim air valves to not swap positions anymore.

If you haven’t picked it up already, the ToLiss A319 is available on store for $69. We reviewed it over a year ago and it still holds strong as a good aircraft for X-Plane users wanting to simulate an Airbus aircraft.
