ToLiSS A321 erschienen

Mit offizieller Unterstützung von Airbus: ToLiSS haben ihren A321 für X-Plane released. Für rund 85 Euro gibt es das Study-Level-Addon jetzt im Simmarket. Folgende Features erwarten interessierte Käufer:

Highlights
  • Detailed FMGS with SIDs/STARs/Airways, performance prediction, temporary, alternate and secondary flight plans, fix info, etc.
  • Choice of CFM or IAE engine, affecting aircraft performance and fuel burn
  • Choice of sharklets or classic wing tip fences. (Affects aircraft drag.)
  • Very accurate FBW implementation, including reversion to alternate and direct law
  • Detailed systems including fault injection for currently about 90 failures. (Electric, hydraulic, flight controls, engine, etc.)
  • Officially licensed by Airbus
  • Commercial “Turbine Sound Studios” sounds for CFM and IAE engines included.
Detailled 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
  • Secondary flight plan
  • 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
  • Fix Info page
  • Latitude/Longitude crossings
  • 2 independent MCDUs and autopilots
  • Drag, thrust and fuel consumption models adapt to selected engine type and wing tip device
  • Choice between new FMGS with temporary flight plan even during preflight phase or old FMGS with direct editing of the active plan during preflight phase.
Top-notch aircraft systems:
  • ToLiss uses the QPAC Fly-by-wire and autopilot module with numerous improvements
  • Flight control system with hinge moment modelling giving realistic float angles for surfaces that are lost due to system faults
  • Custom TCAS with Traffic and Resolution Advisory based on real aircraft logic
  • 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 or with and engine wind milling
  • 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
  • Fault injection system allowing to trigger system faults either at a specific point in flight or randomly during a flight phase
Eye- and ear-candy:
  • Detailed 3D cockpit with high quality texturing
  • 3d exterior model with CFM and IAE engine
  • Choice between classic wingtip fences or modern sharklets (controlled via livery names)
  • Each aircraft comes with licensed high definition sounds from Turbine Sound Studios, the market leader for aircraft sounds in the FSX/P3D world
  • Rain effects thanks to the librain library provided to the x-plane community by Saso Kiselkov
  • Custom particle effects for engine heat trail, landing gear smoke on touch-down etc.
  • Standby compass that can be stowed, cockpit door that opens, fully modeled cabin, etc.
Usability 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 Xplane session end unexpectedly
  • Jumping waypoint-to-waypoint through the cruise phase: Shorten your flight to focus on the more interesting parts as you like
  • 4 different startup configuration from Cold and Dark to engines running and ready to go
  • In-screen popup displays or use of x-plane windows for popups

Bedeutet das “Officially licensed by Airbus” irgendetwas? Hatte Toliss Zugriff auf Airbus interne OEM Daten oder ist die Zertifizierung nur für Werbung gedacht?

Das “licensed” bedeutet nur, dass sie den Namen “Airbus” verwenden dürfen. Addon-Hersteller, die sich das Geld sparen, dürfen das so nicht. FLS und Carenado sind da Beispiele, sie vermeiden die Namen der Flugzeughersteller auf ihren Websites und in den Dokumenten wie der Teufel das Weihwasser.

‘“Officially licensed by Airbus” Das “licensed” bedeutet nur, dass sie den Namen “Airbus” verwenden dürfen und sonst garnichts. da steht nicht: ‘officially tested and approved by Airbus.’

‘licensed’ ist man schon wenn man deren logo verwenden darf. das sagt über die Funktionalität rein netto null bis garnichts. oder wurde die software im Windkanal getestet? I don’t think so. Sonst würde da stehen: von Airbus getestet und für ganz toll befunden.

Nice, bereits mit dem A319 hat Toliss ein sehr solides Addon veröffentlicht!
Der Airbus 321 ist zudem auch etwas günstiger im XPlane.org Store zu haben, für genau 79 Dollar.
