News! - Sound Update! - BSS updated v1.3 A320 Ultimate sound pack


Blue Sky Star Simulation's have released an v1.3 update pack for the FlightFactor Airbus 320-314 Ultimate...  Personally I wasn't too taken with the release version of BSS - Blue Sky Star Simulation's sound pack, it actually felt dull after the JARDesign version, of which I though was magnificent. I expected at least the same sort of immersion from BSS in the A320U, but it just didn't deliver...  and more confusing is the fact that it is basically the same aircraft and almost the same engine in the CFM56-5 to the A320U CFM56-5B4? 


I haven't yet tested the new version... but here are the changelog notes:


General Changes

  • Heat blur/contrails now are working
  • New wind system
  • Empennage wind
  • Mid wing and engine nacelle wind
  • Nose wind
  • All electric contactors remade
  • E&E bay transformers sound
  • PTU distance fixed
  • inlet/extractor sounds
  • Blower resets
  • Advanced settings for Switching/Levers/buttons etc
  • Avionics caused loud speaker pop (when off and on)
  • PAX volume, noise off
  • outside ambiance when front door is open
  • ground roll/brake sounds
  • Air conditioning/packs improved
  • Avionic vent sounds improved
  • Avionic start beep
  • Avionic start bus power high freq. noise

CFM56 overhaul

  • blades windmill sounds
  • complete outside engine sounds all 360 degrees with start/stop sounds (full remade)
  • jet blast sounds hitting fuselage while aircraft is on the ground with max power, disappears when aircraft leaving the ground effect.
  • Intake rush sounds (smart), depending on thrust input
  • Engine spool-down goal, low thrust, spooling down famous CFM sound.
  • Custom high thrust that causes engine to whine more at around 70-80% N1 which fades away with more air into cowling and gets replaced by steady "saw" sound.
  • N2 Core sounds
  • All engine sounds inside change every 3 seats, like they suppose to, basically every PAX seat has its own authentic sound of engine.
  • Jet blast rumble (back)
  • Reverse sounds
  • CFM buzzsaw fixed volume.


Remember that X-Plane11.30 has now N1 and N2 differential outputs, and the notes very much take those new dynamic actions into account.
