News ToLiSS A321 v1.3 Update.jpg

 

Back in late April 2021, ToLiSS updated their excellent Airbus A319 to version v1.6, they also announced at the time that the larger sister Airbus A321 and the addon NEO (New Engine Option) packages in updates that would follow along later... and here they are in version v1.3. Most of the changes in the A319 v1.6 update, are also visible here, but more changes cover not only the different A321 systems, but the additional NEO configurations.

 

The v1.3 changelog is quite substantial, but new features for the NEO option stands out, with now support for SBAS (SLS) LPV approaches, FLS PFD indication scales and autopilot modes for non-precision approaches and IRS INIT page adapted to the latest standard for aircraft with the simplified ADIRS overhead panel...  the Airbus FLS approach system including LPV approach support (SLS) is also available on the base A321, and also added is a RAT (Ram Air Turbine) and it's outflow valve to the external 3d model.

 

Changes from build 1298 (V1.2.2) to 1373 (V1.3)

Major new features:
- Pilot item database allowing the creation and storage of custom waypoints, including associated page reconfigurations on DIR TO, FPLN, RAD NAV page etc.
- Bleed system upgrade to a quantitative bleed model affecting fuel consumption and take-off thrust
- Support for LDA, IGS, Localizer Backcourse and GLS approaches
- Complete rework of the PERF pages to add EO mode information as well as climb/descent predictions to a given altitude
- Rework of the PROG page to include EO mode information including indication of OEI gross ceiling and predictive GPS function
- New NEO feature: Support for SBAS (SLS) LPV approaches
- New NEO feature: FLS PFD indication scales and autopilot modes for non-precision approaches
- New NEO feature: IRS INIT page adapted to the latest standard for aircraft with the simplified ADIRS overhead panel

A321NEO specific new features:
- Airbus FLS approach system including LPV approach support (SLS)

Minor new features:
- When flying the IAE engine, the EWD now properly supports revision to N1 Mode
- TO performance calculator also determines whether packs need to be ON or OFF for the take-off.
- Complete redo of the SD pages ENG, BLEED, PRESS, and F/CTL for better representational accuracy
- FPLN page rework: Constraints are now shown prior to filing the INIT B page.
- FPLN page additional information: The Final approach slope is now shown
- Improved the lateral-directional handling qualities in manual flight
- Changes to altitude and speed constraints of the active flight plan create TEMPY flight plan.
- Added RAT and outflow valve to the external 3d model
- ISI popup is now also scalable

Bug fixes:
- Corrected PFD speed bug location during Go Around
- Prevented waypoint sequencing when flying in HDG mode in opposite direction of FMS path at current TO waypoint
- Fixed ILS indication location on PFD
- Improved AP vertical target tracking when flying with high Angles of Attack
- Fine tuning of the graphical representation in the EWD.
- Speed target for flap 3 landings is back to VAPP
- Waypoints can now be added at end of FPLN directly on the FPLN A page.
- Fixed issues with ground rolling and flap extension sounds
- Preventing engagement of both APs for a non-precision approach.
- Various small bug fixes
- Fixed ground spoiler activation logic when deploying reversers
- Improved the Dome lighting at night
- When reloading a situation faults are now correctly reinstated or reset
- Added triple click when the V/S protection mode engages
- Fixed A/THR arming logic for OEI Go arounds
- Fixed issues with the fault injection logics, when the ISCS remains on the fault injection page
- Improved functionality of the fault injection datarefs
- Improved NavAid Autotuning.
- Improved EGT computations to consider random sensor offset and effect of bleed and electric power use
- Jump to waypoint now advances the chronos as well as x-planes time
- ISCS text entry boxes now display a cursor
- ISCS dropdown lists are now constrained to remain within ISCS window
- Changes to the Autosave algorithm to make it less susceptible to crashes.

BSS Soundpack

Blue Sky Star Simulations (BSS) have also released their A321neo Pratt & Whitney sound pack for the ToLiss A321neo. The sound pack has over 600 sounds recorded from real A321neo aircraft, and it offers an immersive experience of flying with the PW1130G-JM engine variant. 

Currently only available from the Blue Sky Star Simulations (BSS) site.....  A321neo PRO for US$19.95

 

This should be the last updates for now , for both the ToLiSS A319 and A321....  The attention by the developer will now obviously focus on their upcoming A340-600, slated for release in the second half of 2021, modelling for the new A340 aircraft is now being done by a new 3D design company Ekran Design and not the usual developer Roman Berezin (Flightfactor).

 

If you have already purchased the ToLiss A321 (and expanded NEO Package), then go to your X-Plane.OrgStore account and download the new and now available v1.3 packages...  If not you can purchase both the very popular ToLiSS A321 aircraft and NEO addon packages below.
