New Cabin PA Announcement Packs

Recommended Posts

Andrew Wilson

We've just updated the British Airways and easyJet cabin announcement packages with automatic installers, that we hope will make the installation process a lot easier. 

The installers also include a guide that explains in more detail how to listen to the announcements, and how to install them into custom liveries.

Till Lukas has also put together 7 brand new packages for you to download - including Air Berlin, Lufthansa, Condor, Eurowings, Germania, Swiss and a generic German cabin pack. 

You can download them here.

These are for P3D v4 ONLY until the A320-X is updated for P3D v3 and FSX.

After the release of v310 for FSX and P3Dv3, the packs are now compatible with all versions.

Andrew,
Will there be a update for the US carriers?


We don't have any in the works - but I'd love to see some. If people want to record a set for UAL, DAL, JBU etc that would be great. We can help add the post-processing effects and package them up with our installers.

Is there a way to get the included documents without running the installers? I don’t fly any of the included liveries (I fly the UA livery and already have cabin sounds) but would like to read about the triggers etc.

No Bill - but they're not big downloads. And once installed, you won't notice any difference unless you fly the airline you downloaded the announcement pack for.

Ok, thanks. I will run one of the installers and check out the docs that way.

Great aircraft. Having next to no issues now.:wub:

What type of files would you need for the recordings?  How many would you need?

Any format is fine - we can do the conversion to OGG here. The Guide that is installed as part of the existing cabin packs details exactly which files are needed.

You find the list of recordings in the manual comming with the PA packages. There is also a text script for it. Its about 10-15 recordings.

As Andrew said, everybody with a microphone can do it. I used Audacity to record and cutted/editied the files with a video software and exported it as an .ogg file. After that you can send them to us, we will add nice sound effects, normalize the sound level and put it in a installer

Thank you for the packs. Should we delete the PAs first, which we have manually

inserted?

 

Thanks Peter

What will happen to the old cabin announcements? Would they still work without additional modifications?

I like the concept here, but I don't need cabin sounds other than boarding music, safety brief and aircraft noise e.g. flaps. All other times I'll be too busy flying or taxiing the aircraft.

Lufthansa is working just fine but i still can't hear it from the Cockpit. PA is pressed and lit. Loud Speakers are at full volume accordingly to the manual :/

The PA button needs also be turned up to the right (not just only pressed and lit).

i tryed to turn it but i can't find the clickspot. Searched like 15 Minutes. I cant turn it with mouse or mouse wheel

Its a bit fiddly I agree. Try to move your viewpoint down and closer to the knob. I usually use my pedestal camera to adjust the volume. When you have found the turning clickspot you will see that your mouse icons changes...

same here.

in the aircraft.cfg that icao line disapperas and only shows iata with  =fsl

In my case the Lufthansa sounds.

Even if i delete the defalut iata and replace it with icao=dlh after start of p3d it switches back to iata=fsl

Don't modify the aircraft.cfg. Changes there are ignored or cause issues. You need to modify the fltsim.cfg, which is found in the texture folder for each livery.

Rename the file in the zip to FSL_A320X_CABIN_PA_SAFETY_BRIEFING.ogg  Make sure its only the ogg file you copy - not the folder structure inside that zip file.

I had the same problem as him and I fixed it by using the airline_iata_code parameter in the cfg instead of airline_icao_code.

Here :) But: FSL will most likely not do any more packs. This is a community task which everybody with a mic can do.

I got contacted by two users and we will soon have:

  1. A complete new Lufthansa PA recorded through PA on the real A320
  2. A complete new Germania pack
  3. These two packs will also be available as a generic pack which can be used with any German/Swiss/Austrian based airline. This means with will have 2 german male crews and 1 german female crew! This also means: the Germans delivered!

where are the Spanish? Italians? Greek? Turkish? Russians? Americans? Asians? Aussies?

If anyone feels like doing an Etihad pack that would be awesome.
