Aircraft Updates : Airbus A319 and 321 by Toliss

A few days ago Toliss released updates for both A319 and A321, changing and improving many things in the aircraft. Systems were the main focus, adding new features and usabilities. Let's check out what changed.

The A319 is ToliSS's first add-on for X-Plane 11, which was released in early 2018. This  update brought some improvements for the aircraft, like the addition of the Secondary Flight Plan, Fix Info page and a complete rework of the flight path. This last feature resulted in a more accurate computed path.

The A319 received other new features which made the aircraft even more realistic. The most noticeable are the cockpit door, which can be opened now, and the addition of a standby whisky compass. This compass is very well made, giving you now the option to show or hide it. Another great change was the ISCS, it was reorganized to be more intuitive. Now you can change the performance calculator between the Active and Secondary, as well as use TOGA thrust.

Most people that own the A319 already used the ToteDeMacs textures, so Toliss decided to include them as default in the new version. They are pretty nice, even though I prefer using a grey cockpit texture replacement which will be linked at the end of the review. The PFD colors were reworked, as well as the landing symbology, increasing realism.

 

Toliss also made a few minor additions and changes. For those who don't use the incredible BSS sounds, Toliss reworked the sound balance for better immersion. Brake pedal function with a single axis is now allowed, Pause at T/D now pauses the simulation one minute before T/D, FD and AP now have smoother behavior in managed descent. Small changes to make your simulation better.

Airbus A321 v1.03 by Toliss

One of the most popular and awaited add-ons for X-Plane now receives its third update, which includes a few minor improvements to make it a better aircraft. Most of the new features are the same as from the A319, smoother FD and AP, reworked PFD colors and a warning, to prevent you from using Experimental Flight Model.

The A321 received a few exclusive features like the Tailstrike Warning, which shows up in the PFD during landing. The Engine EPR indication was improved (IAE engine), as well as many other improvements related to the engines.

Summary

Toliss proved to be one of the best add-on producers for X-Plane, first with the A319 and now with the longer A321. Updates are very important, they prevent the aircraft from getting outdated, at least buys you more time, and always improves it. Both A319 and A321 both received mostly very similar features and improvements in this update, and even though they weren't big or many, they manage to make the add-on better.

 

Probably the main additions in these updates are for the A319 to reflect the changes on the more modern A321. Opening cockpit door, functional compass, better textures and the systems changes that were were awaited for a while, and the wait was certainly worth it. All these features are very nice and make the overall simulation more enjoyable.

 

Now that Toliss has been around for a good time and proved to have very high-quality products, there is no reason for not having one of these incredible birds in your hangar, they are 100% recommendable.

Hello Bernardo casa again. This is a great update overview and I think it’s time for me too get one of these. 

I already have FF A320 ultimate. 

Which one should I get? I think I’m leaning to a319 because has BSS pack for cfm and iae.

thank you, keep up great articles.

Hi Bob, 

Thanks, I am really happy to know that you are liking my articles.

Both aircraft are extremely good. Personally, I like the A319 more, especially with the IAE sounds, don't forget that you need the CFM too. Independent of your decision, you will be extremely happy.

Thank you. I didn’t get the 330 before, so I am wonder, if I should get 319 or 330. 319 is better, but similar to 320 (I have flightfactor 320), and they are kind of same. 330 is long range and different  though. Which one should I get? Thank!

Hi,

I would get the A330, even though the A319 is way better. I don't have the A320, and won't get it in a while. Payware add-ons here are almost 6x more expensive. But I have the A330, which is one of my favorites. If I was you, I would get the A330, because it is different from both A319 and A320, which are very similar. 

One thing is for sure, you need to buy the BSS sounds, independent of the aircraft. Your simulation will get WAY better.

Ive been a flight simmer since 1998. I have flown all of the alabeos, carenados, flight factors, just flight, rotate md 80 and IEXG airplanes and in my opinion the ToLiss A321 is so far the best airplane I have ever flown. This airplane is addictive.
