  1. Hello everyone, I wanted to take the opportunity to first of all extend our hopes and wishes that everyone is feeling well and safe from the COVID-19 pandemic that has befallen the world. Please be careful to follow your government's instructions and advice so that this can become part of stories and folklore we all one day tell our grandchildren. Lockheed Martin's release of Prepar3D v5 is now behind us and I would also want to take a moment to discuss our roadmap regarding updates for the already released product line and a bit of detail on what the future holds regarding our upcom

  2. Hello everyone, First of all, I hope that everyone is still healthy and safe from the continuing COVID-19 pandemic that has befallen the world. Some countries were hit harder than others, this has been a tremendous test of our limits both in terms of our medical facilities as well as our collective global economy and I am so relieved to see that overall, the human race is united against this invisible enemy! Now - I am happy to announce that our latest update (v5.0.1.100) for the A320-X for both P3D v4 and v5 is now live and available through our download page. As I had mentione

  3. Hello everyone, I am happy to announce that our latest updates (v5.0.1.114) for the A320-X, the A321-X as well as the A319-X now, are live and available through our download page. This is the first update that makes the A319-X compatible with P3D v5, which brings improvements in performance, as well as several updates and fixes to the base code. In this update, we spent significant time to update the external model with PBR texturing for the A319-X, to bring it up to v5 standards, adding several improvements which follow the A320-X and A321-X updates, such as dynamic cabin windo

  4. Hello everyone, Just a small post to let everyone know that we've updated the A320-X installer to v5.0.1.105. This version should improve performance for most of you as, with the help of a couple of very insightful customers, we found an area of code that could afford further optimization. We'd love to hear back your observations regarding improvements this new version has on your computer, both on P3Dv5 as well as P3Dv4. That's not all, though. If you're a Simbrief user (and we strongly recommend becoming one - the service is wonderful!), we have some news for you as w

This update should also fix a couple of small issues (namely, the NEW CRZ ALT rounding issue and a few other niggles). EDIT: There are some GSX related updates as well that I forgot to mention: Once loaded in on stand, click MECH HORN to setup the aircraft. This will: - Call Stairs followed by GPU on remote stands - Or Call Jetway into position - This process can take up

  6. Hello all, We’re pleased to announce the immediate release of our A321-X for Prepar3D v4.4+! The A321-X is the biggest aircraft of the A320-X family, at 6.93m longer than the A320-X. Seating configurations vary, from a typical 170 to 200 seats being the most common variant, and up to 220 seats in a more high-density layout and a Maximum Takeoff Weight of up to approximately 93.5 tons. The FSLabs A321-X has many new features added, ranging from full external visual changes, such as Physics-based Rendering (PBR) newly supported in Prepar3D v4.4+, to internal systems and logic appl

This update brings some fixes and improvements to items reported since our v434 release. Notably in this version, you will find a fix for the STD ATSU leap year issue, as well as fixes in friction logic that caused high brake temperatures in "hard winter" scenarios. Note that you will need to download updated versions of the FSLabs provided liveries, as there were a few small differences in the updat

This update brings some fixes to items reported since our v424 release, as well as improvements for both products.

  11. Hello guys, I appreciate all of the hype going on already and I am super excited to see all the anticipation reaching amazing levels! In fact, I wanted to share that, while we don't expect the release to go out tonight as our beta team is still going through the usual uninstall / reinstall of the new HF2 client and testing the latest version, we are actually quite confident that what is coming is going to make everyone very happy! We also expect to lift the NDA within this weekend to allow our testers to showcase some of the beautiful new features we've put in place - I am sure

  14. Hi all – As Lefteris commented on, one of my favourite areas of the updated models, besides the PBR, is the cabin windows. Each window has now been remodelled in detail - and we've also modelled the cabin window blinds, individually. You'll notice the blinds moving as you fly - depending on where the sun is relative to the aircraft and flight phase. For example, should the sun be shining on the left side of the fuselage, then you'll see more cabin blinds close on that side. As the sunlight becomes more intense before dusk or after dawn - more blinds will close. During dusk/dawn, we figure

  15. I've elected to stay away from this until now as it gives people an opportunity to joke around, vent their frustrations on a "perceived delay" of our release (even though I've explained the reasons behind the delay) and has so far been kept casual and light-hearted. It seems things are starting to derail now, however. When our beta testers are starting to be called "fanboys" and the requirement that "claims need to be backed up" arises, people's feelings are starting to be hurt and I am not liking the direction the thread is taking. So - without further ado - if you do not wish me to

  16. Hi guys- just a small note to say that we're fixing some issues we found while testing the release - nothing too major but it might take a little bit more time to do. That, in combination with the upcoming P3Dv5 HF2 which we feel will fix a couple other very important shortcomings, is delaying our release. Just wanted you guys to know, so you don't expect the release to drop within the next couple of days at least.

This update should fix a performance issue noted in P3D v5.1 and also allows the installer to properly detect older P3D v5.0 versions. Note that we anticipate another update once Lockheed Martin release their P3D v5.1 hotfix in the coming days. As always, thank you very much for your continued support!

  22. Hi all- just so that I don't give anyone a heart attack- we've been working on the background stuff required for the release, but I would not expect it to happen today as I'd like our dev and support team to have a relaxing weekend. We are almost there, however, so I expect it to be early next week - our testers are giving it a very thorough testing so please enjoy the streams tonight and over the weekend!

  24. It’s not platform locked for the sake of it. A lot of our simulation runs independently of the P3D SDK in order to deliver a number of unique features exclusive to our titles (dynamic lighting/effects/sounds/flight model). These all need configuring and testing with each iteration of the P3D platform. And due to the complexity of the simulation - it takes a few days for our teams to ensure no issues are introduced. In addition to this, our development streams are constantly evolving - and the release of a new P3D build means we need to test any updates to our code base on the new platform wi

  25. Hello everyone, Just a small post to let everyone know that we've updated the A320-X installer to v5.0.1.101, which hopefully fixes a few issues with regional settings when language is not set to English. While this is officially NOT supported (and neither is it for Prepar3D itself, for that matter), we expect that the program should work OK. We also relaxed the requirements for Windows LTSC and Enterprise, however, again, they're not officially supported - they should install on those now, provided they're updated to latest versions. We also updated the A319-X and A321-X instal

    Hi all, With the NDA lifted I can showcase what I've been up to the last few weeks. I consider this my COVID-19 furlough project as I was off work for almost a month and a half but I'm back into the fold now thankfully! I spent my time off working on an all-new 4K PBR-enhanced fuselage kit and am combining it into a full-featured kit in collarboration with @Hugo Bicho and @John Tavendale. This is leveraging Hugo's wings, engines, pylons, stabs and other bits. I've completely reworked the entire fuselage, including panelling, rivets, wing box, doors, landing gear struts, tires, cockpi

On that topic: We were planning on posting a news update today, but it's already 10pm here and family obligations are already calling. As such, I would like to apologize but this will take place tomorrow instead, rather than put something out that misses fun and exciting things! Talk soon guys!

  30. I fly both the 320 and 321 in the real world. All of my company's 321's are sharklet equipped. I find the airplanes fly pretty much the same although there are a few things to be mindful of. One obviously is the possibility of a tailstrike on takeoff and landing. We always brief this during the takeoff and arrival briefings. My company has big red placards in front of our eyes to remind us as well. Sometimes this can be mind over matter on short runways or when you've used up most of it during a flex takeoff. 1R in SFO comes to mind, when heavy heading to NY. A nice 3 degree rotation per secon

  39. While I understand there might be some strong feelings towards other simulations of A320 aircraft, I would kindly ask everyone to watch their tone and refrain from derogatory or insulting remarks. There are people working very hard to develop these products so if by any chance they frequent this forum, they will feel terribly if they read your comments regardless of your intentions. Please think about such things before posting.

  41. Just to answer some quick questions: Everything will be compatible with both v4.5/v5. We'll update the existing titles to v4.5 HF3 in the coming days. The updates for the A320/A321/A319 will follow for v5 - there is some significant work to be done here. The new Sharklet expansion product will then follow.

  43. Felipe, you called people "fanboys". That's a derogatory, inflammatory, demeaning, insulting (shall I continue with the adjectives?) remark. The point isn't to shut up, it's to be courteous, respectful, kind, polite and nice. If you can't be those, best course of action is to keep quiet. I'd prefer if you could be those things instead, however.

Gents- (I feel this is Groundhog day and I'm living the same scenario over and over ) As I've said before, the bug most noticeably fixed by the upcoming new release has a quick workaround that everyone is aware of by now (CLR and LSK3R). Together with the fact that we appreciate your previously mentioned aversion to multiple releases happening within a very quick period of time, we took a few days longer to fix other small issues reported, most notably with the external model, so you won't be confused with those multiple releases. (At the same time, yes, we are aware of th
