NEWS! - Updated : ToLiss updates A340 to Version v1.0.2

 

News ToLiSS A340 v1.02 Update.jpg

 

Aircraft updates have been coming thick and fast over the Northern Holidays from ToLiSS. First was the A319 late November 2021 v1.6.2, then the the A321 v1.3.1 in early December and now coming back around the circle comes the A340 to v1.0.2. (there was a small post release release v1.01 October 30th 2021).

 

Details include features the addition of an animated RAT (Ram Air Turbine ), a CVR and Battery self-test, flap and nose gear animations with different wheel speed animations with particles AND animated hydraulic lines to the landing gear for higher realism. And an ECAM taxi camera... 

 

The "Taxi Camera" feature is AMAZING...  You get the choice of all three screens in the Pilot (Replaces PFD, but switchable to the MFD/NAV via the PFD/ND button far left). The same for the Co-Pilot and the lower ECAM SD display. All three screens are controlled by a "CAMERA" switch panel lower left Pedestal. Quality is excellent, and finally someone has worked out on how to deliver a very realistic Camera feature to the flightdeck.... obviously it would be ToLiSS!

Note on the RAT. I found some (earlier) A340 liveries shows the RAT uncovered (right wing) on a lot of the liveries, so the liveries have to redownloaded to later versions or to use the latest V1.2 paintkit to fix the issue.
