    Hello everyone, As promised in our 17 June 2019 announcement, I am happy to announce that our update for the A320-X and A319-X for P3D v4 (64-bit) is now live and available through our download page. Please note that the new installers will require that you have a new order ID and activation key (serial number) from FastSpring and will guide you on how to get them from our License Transfer web site. The site will allow you to update your existing eSellerate A319-X and A320-X licenses to FastSpring entirely free of charge. Note also that the A320-X for FSX (32-bit) installers have been updated to use the same license transfer process (no code update for those, as previously discussed). Below, we've posted the detailed change log for items added / improved in the P3Dv4 64-bit update. As always, thank you for your continued support! ----- Change log: ATSU Several logic fixes Fix for GSX crew bus logic Various fixes for loadsheet logic, weight / balance and fuel In flight Menu additions to AOC Slot change logic improvements Print POS58 settings updated AOC Fix for parsing SID/STARs CIDS Cabin Ready fixes Doors FWC Phase detection logic fix Arming logic improvements EGPWS Fixes for failure conditions Fix for RFCF spurious triggering on takeoff Logic improved to diminish spurious warnings ELAC FG work for better handling in turbulence FG tuning for fast/light weight to prevent oscillations Fix for low hyd pressure sensor logic Roll tuning improvements Engines IAE: Flex EPR logic fix External model CFM: cosmetic fix on right engine Fix for right wing skin animation on outer strut A319-X floating decal fix CFM (all variants) reversers fix FADEC FLEX logic fixes Failures Added Erroneous RA failure FLSCU Fix for center tank pump auto control FMGS FM: Fix for PERF TO page where auto V-speed was 0 Fix for FPM GA synchronization Lateral calculation logic improvements (EGGP / EGSS cases) PERF TO page perf figures fix Fix for auto descent wind uplink logic NO VIA listing fix FSLConfigurator Fix for atc_parking_codes FWC Fix for CFM shutdown ECAM GSX Pax number logic fix Sounds muted in cockpit/cabin Hydraulics THS motor speed / ref values fix Payloads Fix for cabin crew 0 issue Various fixes for boarding logic with GSX Sounds Small infrastructure logic fixes Fix for missing PTU sounds Fuel and Pack sound tweaks Fixes for cockpit door sound infrastructure logic GSX logic improvements Various sound engine infrastructure improvements Virtual Cockpit Fix for captain side window dirt texture

    Ray, Read my posts more carefully. I have been nothing if not tolerant to your venting and continuous complaints. It's a fact of life that FSLabs is a business and as such it needs to be very careful with decisions that affect its future plans. We have nothing but love for the concorde and the decision to pause development has a considerable toll on us as well, given how much we have already invested on the product. I did lock threads and I will take even more severe measures however when the integrity of our developers comes into question and when those rants you and others make go entirely out of line. We are very patient with some comments but I will never tolerate being called a liar or made out to have ulterior motives. If you don't like this attitude you are welcome to stop posting altogether. This is the last post I'll make on the matter. And I'm locking this thread as well.

    All too quickly we all want to purchase and fly, in some cases as technology improves our own individual situations differ from each other, with that said yes i had certain issues getting my A320x to work P3DV4.5, however i am a veteran simmer, since 1990 infact, and this Forum note is from an ex-MALGATE!!!!, FSLABS customer that returned a year later as this is far a superior piece of kit for the A320 as of today, but my note is to thank a very very supportive FS LABS chap by the name of Norman, i know we know who he is but Norman helped me out over his weekend whilst being away in Italy. i too come from a service delivery background and have to say this was by far the best example of customer one to one support i have ever experienced in the flight sim world, i cannot thank Norman enough for his kind support, even being 6 hours time difference, fantastic person, to go hand in hand with a really fantastic product. Norman i owe a few beer and well done from a very happy customer. cheers.

    EDIT: UPDATED 04th July 2019 With countless flights and the new v400 build I have made a new version with many changers please use the link below. This version is designed to work along with v400. I will hopefully update it again when new versions are released. I hope it can help people get started with all the complexities of this wonderful aircraft. Or like myself remind me of all the steps. (This is NOT to be used with FS2Crew) Enjoy! Don't use the one attached at the bottom anymore. (Deleted) Hi, After watching all of Flyboys (Johnny) and BB streams (thanks guys) I updated my Crib sheet. So as far as I can tell this is what they both use as there flow of work with the new update coming. So anyway I thought it might help? It's just what I use on my iPad so after going through all the changes I thought I might as well share it. Am sure it will change once we all get the update in our hands. Am hoping it will get me out the blocks fast or should that be of the chocks? It's no SOP but based around some of them. Anyway just indented it to help.

    Ray, I had to add another smile to your post, first because I think you are taking this far too seriously, and second because the software is not charity... it is a commercial product and I find it strange, to say the least, phrases like "you don't know how lucky you are" or that "be grateful for what you have" for something that I've paid for! If you are not using those phrases with a pint of humor than at least try to broaden your perspective. Now... having said that... I would go as far at to say we are all grateful for this exchange - good product, fair price - and I agree with you that we are not necessarily entitled as customers to any new products, how much placed on some short time table. But please try to relax and let people smile when they choose to. It will be a hell of a summer for me because that MSFS bit has rearranged my purchasing priorities to say the least.... I am done with Orbx and any other added scenery for example, and I hope FSLabs will keep an eye on that development so that we jump in that virtual sky earlier than later. I am not very happy with Prepar3D and I keep using it because of FSLabs and only. But otherwise, you are right, we have a great product to keep us entertained for the next couple of years, so what's the rush?

The purpose will influence the minimum amount of passengers (less chance of a half empty plane on a holiday flight) and the bags (pieces) per passenger (might be more than one per pax on an holiday flight & not every one on a business trip is checking baggage in etc.). Passenger weight: 84kg Bag weight: 17kg Male/Female/Child distribution just for immersion, does not affect total passenger weight.

    ****PLEASE READ - CONTAINS INFORMATION ABOUT PRODUCT END-OF-LIFE AND INSTALLER UPDATES FOR EXISTING PRODUCTS**** Hello Everyone, I wanted to take a moment to update everyone regarding news on upcoming products, information on older products being retired, our plans going forward and offer some comments on the latest announcement from Microsoft. Transition from eSellerate to FastSpring As all of our customers know, we've relied on eSellerate for all our product sales and transactions. We've enjoyed a very solid relationship with them for over ten years now and have been very happy with their professionalism and support. Unfortunately, Digital River, the parent company of eSellerate, have globally decided that eSellerate discontinue any new sales operations starting June 30th, 2019, while retaining product activation/deactivation capabilities for existing customers until September 30th, 2019, at which time the eSellerate infrastructure will no longer be available. As soon as we were informed of this news, we started looking for the most appropriate eCommerce provider to match our customers' requirements. After a thorough market search, we selected FastSpring (www.fastspring.com) as they rate very highly in customer satisfaction and have a stellar reputation in handling payment processing in a fast and efficient manner. I'd like to provide some details on how we're going to transition from eSellerate to FastSpring and how this affects you as a customer below. To do so, first I'd like to discuss what will happen to our existing products: Prepar3D v4 (P3Dv4 - 64bit) All our products for P3D v4 will continue being sold and supported through our web site. This includes the A320-X (P3Dv4), the A319-X (P3Dv4) and the upcoming A321-X (P3Dv4). Existing installers for purchases before June 30th will continue working until September 30th, 2019. Starting June 30th, existing customers will be able to transition to new installers by following a free license transfer process through our web site to receive new activation keys that the new installers will require. We aim to make the transition process as easy as possible - details on the transition mechanism will also be available as a separate announcement and email. We expect that our upcoming A320-X update will be part of this transition. Prepar3D v3 (P3Dv3 - 32bit) We will stop selling any P3Dv3 products (Concorde-X / A320-X) effective June 30th. At the same time, we'll stop providing free upgrades from P3Dv3 to P3Dv4 for our A320-X product line. Support will continue for at least one year (June 30th 2020) and product activation will continue working with existing installers until September 30th, 2019. After that date, we will provide updated installers through our Redownloads page which will allow activation without contacting eSellerate's activation mechanism. Flight Simulator X (SP2/XPack/Steam - 32bit) As with the P3Dv3 products, there will be no further development work done on the FSX products, but sales of the A320-X for FSX only will continue until September 30th. This will conclude sales of all FSLabs 32-bit products as they have reached end-of-life and development for them will no longer take place. As with the P3Dv3 products, we will provide updated installers through our Redownloads page which will allow activation without contacting eSellerate's activation mechanism. As a result, effective June 30th, all new sales on our web site will no longer be processed by eSellerate and will be handled through FastSpring's popup storefront system. How does this affect you as a customer? New customers (purchasing after 30 June): Only 64-bit products will be available for purchase. All sales will be handled by FastSpring. Sales through eSellerate will no longer be possible. Concorde-X (32-bit) will no longer be offered for sale for any platform. The A320-X for FSX will no longer be offered for sale after September 30th, 2019. Existing customers who have already purchased one of our products: 64-bit product updates released after June 30th, 2019 will use installers that will require FastSpring order IDs (starting with "FLI") and new activation keys. Details on this will be provided in a separate announcement and email. We are aiming to make the transition as easy as possible to better serve and support you going forward. Upcoming products Work continues on the A321-X - we will provide a separate announcement with more details on exciting new features and new functionality as time goes by, but we think the A321-X is shaping up to be our finest product yet - we know it’s a favourite amongst pilots and we’re sure our customers will develop an equal appreciation for this airframe with its rather unique characteristics. The model already looks superb and the liveries that Vassilis has been producing are shining with their new Physics Based Rendering textures. I expect several preview pictures to follow in the coming months, along with some lovely surprises in the cockpit. The Concorde-X for 64-bit is now officially on pause. While we received some strong support from customers regarding future sales on P3Dv4, we have to ensure that we align our business model with the significant development news that we received from Microsoft, and since the aircraft is so specialized, we prefer to evaluate further once there are more details on the new platform. The A3XX-X is also in its early stages of development, we'll have more news on that when available. "Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020" (working title) We were very happy to read the announcement of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator platform (which most now affectionately call "MSFS 2020"). It signals the return of one of the most prolific products that our good friends in Redmond have developed and we are all very excited to take a preview look into what looks to be technologies bringing the simulated world to a new level of immersion. We've seen the same previews as you have and they are certainly breathtaking! We cannot, however, provide any details or answer any questions about "MSFS 2020" at the present time, other than to say that our excitement about this next version is the same as yours! That's all for now, expect more details on the transition to FastSpring these coming days! Thank you always for your continued support!

    EDIT: There was a further update to address the faint line around the A319's fuselage as I mentioned previously. It can be found on the server linked in the post, here is the devs post for reference. https://gyazo.com/dd349349db4503d276128b8489804bbe Afternoon Everyone, I've seen a lot of topics about people asking about compatible profiles. So, I wanted to let people know which ones I am using (and I know others are too) the Tomato Shade ones have been updated today - they work well and look very nice in my opinion. You can find the download link on his Discord Server here: https://discord.gg/YQefUbv (I don't want to re-post the links without his permission). https://gyazo.com/4281ab897792edc53542bb6b385d721c For some examples you can see my screenshots in this thread Thanks

    Landed in Rhodes today. Severe updrafts on final provided me a big challenge. Some snaps after landing. Rhodes may be the worst airport in the world IRL, but in the sim it's a beautiful place to fly into. Norman needs to stop vaping in the cabin! But really though, what I love about the FSL Bus is small details like this. Parked with APU bleed on with an OAT of +34C. As expected, the cabin is full of steam coming from the air vents. As a bonus, here's a video of the return leg in real life, shot in 2016, where you can see the steamy cabin in action. I apologize in advance for my shaky hands as this was filmed on a Canon EOS60D.

    You don’t know how lucky you are. You already have a 64-bit version of the A319 and A320. We Concorde owners have just been told this week the 64-bit version is paused until God knows when. As I said be grateful for what you have.

    Hi there, when I use Simbrief, I'm often unsatisfied with the way the "AUTO" function of passengers and cargo works (you often end up with 175 pax and only 200kg of cargo/baggage etc.). And since I don't like just "picking" numbers, I made a little "payload generator", just for fun (and thought I might as well share it with you guys). It's nothing fancy and only made with Excel (I wanted to make it a website, but I don't know nothing about Javascript etc. ), but it will generate some passenger numbers and reasonable cargo. The idea is that you "request" the booking information from the "booking department"(?) and use the values for dispatch in Simbrief. I based my calculation loosely on several real loadsheets of an EU-based-airline I have (that count bag pieces on them), as well as this rather old passenger/baggage weight survey: https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/default/files/dfu/Weight Survey R20090095 Final.pdf. Passenger weight is 84kg (FSL standard) and bag weight is 17kg per piece. So here you can enter flight number and origin/destination (those two are just for the looks), select aircraft and seat config, as well as choose between business and leisure purpose of the flight. The purpose will influence the minimum amount of passengers (less chance of a half empty plane on a holiday flight) and the bags (pieces) per passenger (might be more than one on an holiday flight and not every one on a business trip is checking baggage in). So simply put, a business flight might have less passengers and bags per pax, whereas a leisure flight should be rather packed. I also created fields for a random distribution of the total passengers into genders and kids, but that won't have any effect on the weight, as both FSLabs and Simbrief don't use specific gender & child weights (infants don't add to the total pax). But it might add some immersion So maybe some of you guys find it useful and like it, if so I might add some random passenger names and seat numbers in the future If somebody wants to expand on this idea (online generator?), feel free to do so, I can send you the open file if that's of any help. And please remember, it's free, it's fun . Best regards, Stu

    Hey! While, Concorde of course officially had no routes whatsoever at Budapest, it's still an amazing video, when we have the chance to have her here. Too bad, I wasn't even adult when this happened to afford at least be nearby the airport to see her. That music in the background even gives more "old" feeling.

    The A321 is definitely one of my most anticipated aircraft, especially considering the range one can achieve with 2 ACTs. It'll open up a whole new world of routes we're able to fly in our sims and the added weight and length should make everything just that much more interesting. As for Concorde..this topic is about the 321, not the Concorde. Airbus fliers aren't injecting their thoughts about the Busses into Concorde forums, so I only see it fit that the same isn't done in the Bus forums. Just my two cents.
