NEWS! Aircraft Updated : Flightfactor A320-214 Ultimate v1.6.1


UPDATE News! FlightFactor v1.6.1 header.jpg


X-PlaneReviews only did an overview coverage of the FlightFactor A320-214 to v1.5.6 just over a month ago... Aircraft Update : Flightfactor A320-214 Ultimate v1.5.6 gets a serious update! Yet here we are with another one to v1.6.1.


Obviously it is not a huge update, could even be considered as a touch up to the significant earlier v1.5.6 release. Myself, I wish FlightFactor had focused more on the immediate problems with the aircraft?


The manipulator zones are all over the place, and not focused on the knobs and switches there are supposed to represent, the lighting has had the cabin floor lighting installed, but the cabin lighting framerate plummet is of a frightful kind that has had no attention. Worse is that you now can't see out of the cabin windows, because many of the shades are lowered? So I'm not exactly thrilled with it at the moment...


Changelog 1.6.1
* cabin visual improvements: shadows and geometry
* dimmed cabin floor light stripe
* VSW stuck and not moving
* overspeed protection too aggressive
* missed doors in xp11 version
* missed internal lights in cockpit and cabin in xp11 version


Changes in the v1.5.6 update in the doors and cabin, have now been updated or fixed for X-Plane 11, other v1.6.1 changes include:


VSW Stuck and Not Moving:

Issue addressed in this update is the VSW stuck and not moving. The VSW (Vertical Speed Wheel) is an essential component of the aircraft, and when it gets stuck, it can cause problems for the pilot. The update fixes this issue and ensures that the VSW operates correctly.

Overspeed Protection Too Aggressive:

The overspeed protection in the A320 was too aggressive, which meant that the aircraft would automatically reduce its speed even when it was not necessary. This update fixes this issue and ensures that the overspeed protection operates as intended.
