Aircraft Update : ToLiSS A319 v 1.0.2

 

After the initial direct after release update in v1.0.1, this second update in v1.0.2 is now also available. The earlier v1.0.1 release was the expected tidying up of bugs and to cover a few things that were missed in the release version, but the added feature to key command to open up the ISCS (Interactive Simulation Control System) window was a nice touch and the fix to control the native sound volumes between switching into the A319 and then switching out to another aircraft was also most welcome as well.

In version v1.0.2 there is now even a few new features creeping in. First off you can now set the regular brake pressure (default is 50%). So the point is here is you like the FlightFactor A320 Ultimate brake feel which is set very (very) low, which at first I really hated it, but then got very used to the feel very quickly...   you can now have that same sort of feel on the ToLiSS A319. A note is that the brake feel adjustment on the ISCS can only be done once the aircraft is running on the Settings/Actions page in the Preferences section.

In the release version the ISCS menu was large and was also fixed solid in the centre of your screen. Now you can move it around the screen via the title bar which helps a lot, but the menu is still quite large and still the menu has no scaling, but the option to move the ISCS while setting up the MCDUs (FMS) is very welcome indeed.

The axis of the aircraft to the airbridge has been adjusted and the aircraft will start with the airbridge now ready and attached...

...  but the alignment is still not quite right as the airbridge still sits a little too high compared to the height of the door (arrowed)?

 

The flap lever now notches with flap position selection, small detail but it makes it more realistic.

ILS has had attention with the fixed behaviour of the LS button (I don't remember anything wrong with it before?), and the issue of ILS turning by 180 degrees half-way through the runway has also been fixed.

Other bugs addressed in this update includes the important mapping between pedestal  pitch trim indicator wheel and actual pitch trim position which was off by 0.2deg in some areas and the issue with toggling the descent profile.

The AP (AutoPilot) now disconnects on pedal deflection as it did on sidestick deflection earlier and the time out on the Master Caution/Warning for AP and ATHR instinctive disconnect has been adjusted. There has also been a fix for FCU behaviour when you manually switching between SPD and Mach mode as sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't and the XP11 specific brake behaviour has had attention as well, but all XP11 behaviours are all very transient at the moment in X-Plane so expect another adjustment with another X-Plane version later in the year.

Summary

The ToLiSS319 is coming along very nicely thank you with this already second update since release. A few new features are being implimented with the
ISCS (Interactive Simulation Control System) window now keyable and movable around the screen. The regular brake adjustment is an interesting one, it allows you to set the A319 like the A320 Ultimate braking action and this feature could spread out more to other high grade airliners. And a lot of the bugs and other issues have also had a lot of attention.

 

More and more quality liveries are also coming available for the A319 like this excellent quality Cobalt Air (above) by ComSimPilot (his Aegean Airlines is very good as well) and these more higher quality liveries are making the A319 bus even better again.

 

The ToLISS319 is an instant classic and its high sales since its release in X-Plane shows it is already a very popular aircraft, and rightly so as this is one of the best handling airbuses in X-Plane. And with these constant and clever updates coming along at a mighty click and speed then this aircraft is well worth your investment. Highly recommended!

Yes! the ToLiSS319 (A319-122) by ToLiSS is available from the X-Plane.Org Store here :


ToLiss A319

 

Price is US$69.00

 

Features Include:

Detailed FMGS:
  • Support of SID/STAR, including all leg types (Arc, course or heading to intercept, Radius to Fix, Holdings, etc.)
  • Temporary and alternate flight plans
  • Full VNAV guidance with TOC, TOD, Deceleration point, speed limits, fuel prediction, etc.
  • Altitude and speed constraints as the real aircraft deals with them
  • Ability to change the selected STAR while already in the STAR
  • Support for go-arounds and diversions
  • Step altitudes
  • Airway support
  • 2 independent MCDUs and autopilots
Top-notch aircraft systems:
  • ToLiss uses the QPAC Fly-by-wire and autopilot module
  • Brake temperature model based on the detailled physics of heat transfer between the individual brake components
  • Hydraulics model in which the pressure is dependent on usage. This is most notable when dropping to RAT mode
  • Detailled model of each ADIRU including alignment, small pressure sensor differences between the units, switching of sources for PFDs
  • Custom air conditioning model supporting high altitude operations at airports like Cusco in Peru or La Paz in Bolivia without spurious warnings
  • Flight warning system with ECAM actions supporting numerous system failure scenarios, e.g. engine failures, generator failures, hydraulic failures.
Eye- and ear-candy:
  • Detailled 3D cockpit
  • 3d exterior model with CFM and IAE engine
  • Choice between classic wingtip fences or modern sharklets (controlled via livery names)
  • Custom sounds for all systems, engine sounds, APU etc. based about 80 custom samples
 
Useability features:
  • Situation loading and saving. It is possible to save the flight at any point in time and resume it another day. This can also be used, e.g., to save the position just before approach and practice just the approach many times.
  • Autosaving allows recovering where you left off, should the X-Plane session end unexpectedly.
  • Jumping waypoint-to-waypoint through the cruise phase: Shorten your flight to focus on the more interesting parts as you like.

 

Requirements
X-Plane 11 (or X-Plane 10)
Windows (64bit) , Mac (OSX 10.11 and up) or Linux (tested on Ubuntu 14.10)
2Gb VRAM Minimum - 4Gb+ VRAM Recommended
Installation
Download of the ToLiSS319 is 729mb and it is installed in your Airliner Folder as a 1.19Gb folder.
 
If you have already purchased the ToLiSS A319 from the X-Plane.OrgStore then just go to your account and download the new v1.0.2 version. The ToLiSS319 also comes with the X-Updater application that can also update the aircraft without doing the complete download, and that App is found in your main root ToLiSS319 aircraft folder.
