On the Flight Sim Labs forum, some people started to beg for the previews of the A319 rendition in Prepar3D v5, which is as of right now in beta testing. The developer also shared a small piece of information about the development of the aircraft update.
As mentioned, the previews were shared via the FSLabs forums, showing off some, especially external screenshots of the aircraft, together with visual effects and the initial release liveries.
On the screenshots, we can see the new PBR texturing in action, together with the new freezing and snow effects of the aircraft. The initial release liveries should be the FSLabs one, Scandinavian Airlines, Qatar, Alitalia, British Airways, and unpreviewed Iberia, which we know about because of a question of one user.
Speaking of the development, it has been stated that the aircraft is right now in the final stages of development and testing.
Later on, the Sharklet add-on will be released as well. This will include EFB, sharklets versions and SATCOM antennas to the current versions of aircraft. Unfortunately, the developer just now confirmed that the Sharklets won’t be compatible with A319 and it will be only capable of using SATCOM and EFB from the add-on.
