Does the update have the new S8 software? I didn't see it in the release notes.

Is this the update for v4/v5 and after the A321 in a few weeks?

Is this the S8 software, LEFTI PLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I’m correct this update won’t work with the v4 livery’s right?

If it wasn't in the release notes - or indeed our roadmap - what would you take from this?

Thanks for the update :D

So, is this correct that from now on, the only livery source is here -> https://forums.flightsimlabs.com/index.php?/files/category/68-v501100-user-submitted-liveries/ 

So, 2 liveries so far for this version (which will obviously increase with time, as painters update them), and that, liveries on said link are for the V5 of the Airbus, but work on 4.5HF3 ?

those are user created ones. the main a320 livery section will contain the fslabs own lliveries.

But I thought that the new S8 software would be on this update. Does the update at least have the approach identifier (ILS 26L Z) for example on the ND?

In the roadmap, PBR and S8 as mentionned together, in the same paragraph regarding the update. I can understand the confusion and wonder the same :ph34r:maybe it will be included in another update, or alongside sharklets ?

Hi Marc,

Why did you think this?  I'm looking back at what we have said and can't see anything to suggest otherwise.  S8 was always to be part of the Sharklets package.   If you have a link to suggest otherwise please let us know.

Thank you. 

So, no internal/official liveries has been updated yet, as I see that they have been updated last time in 2018/2019 ?

It's fine, I can wait, just want to make sure I didn't miss anything :D

i think the news update post from april 16th might be a bit confusing or misleading.

That's incorrect. Our official liveries are here:

https://forums.flightsimlabs.com/index.php?/files/category/60-a320-x-liveries/

and have been updated for v5.0.1.100.

Hey, 

Don't want to be annoying, I will buy the sharklets package anyways and I am super happy to see that this wonderful product is being updated.

But I think the confusion comes from the fact that S8 is mentionned as part of the A320 update, which is separate from the sharklets one. And sharklets paragraph doesn't even mention only sharklets at the end of the wings, but many other stuff such as screen colours etc !

Now time to install the update, download over :wub:

But that was before v5 + the HF2 stuff came along, right? :blink:
Then the roadmap "changed" a bit!

Any in any case: Its released boys! And it flies very smooth and steady! No need for S8 yet ;)

No.  Well you could but you will find that things are not correctly mapped.  And then ask for support. And then, well we will go around in circles.

Interesting.

I will try it and report back :D

 

If there are slight mistakes I can live with that for now.

But flying without the proper real life registration will trigger me :D

In an Post at the news i found this and it tells S8 by the A320-x that does not contain the Sharklets

 

FSLabs A320-X

Those of you who have been with us since the FSX days know that we continuously update and improve on already released products for years after they first come out. The A320-X is a true testament to this philosophy, so we are going to be releasing several exciting features and new logic. Among the most notable of the updates and new features that the A320-X platform has received are:

  • Added S8 software updates to the FMGS
    • MDA/DH replaced with BARO/RADIO
    • UPDATE AT deprecated
    • IRS INIT page updated
    • FIX INFO pages updated
    • DMC updates for Profile/VDEV and approach identifiers
    • Flight Guidance NPA logic revised
  • Added CPDLC systems
  • Added DCDU displays
  • Several external model and virtual cockpit improvements
  • All new PBR textures on the external IAE and CFM models

That last part (PBR textures) requires that we release an updated paint-kit to go along with the updated model, to support the necessary PBR changes. We expect to also roll out new versions of our FSLabs-supported liveries for the models very shortly after the main product release that will feature those individual liveries in PBR textures.

Correct me if im wrong but in V5 screenshots of non sharklet version from beta testers I saw the approach identifiers

the VRAM and the performance is so great I managed to land at EGLL with TEGB south and almost at full detail without any drop from my 30-capped V5 and smooth as ever.

This is so great!!!

Its what happens when you are multi tasking and trying to do a zoom meeting about your job security at the same time as a release.

Prayers for the best. The sim is at least giving us pleasure in those not so funny times. Hope it's gonna be okay.

Is this an optical illusion, or do the cockpit textures look way better than on the pre-update 321 build ? Not commenting the screenshots, I'm flying it right now :P

Yes, the 321 update is only for V4HF3 and makes it work with the new version of the 320. 321 is not yet updated for v5.
