FSLabs Updates A320-X to v5.0.01.100 for Prepar3D v4 and v5

FSLabs has released their long-awaited update for their Airbus A320 to be compatible with Prepar3D v5. However, this is not the only thing that this update provides us with.

This update is also available for v4 version of this aircraft and it contains new PBR textures, significant improvements in performance, each passenger window is now modelled individually in detail, which enables stunning PBR reflections when flying, there is also animated window blind, which adjusts automatically throughout the flight.

Together with this update, you’ll have to update your liveries as well, as some changes to the aircraft paint kit has been done. (PBR)

If you own the A319-X and A321-X, there is an update for those as well (4.0.1.100) for P3D v4, which share some of the internal workings and code with A320-X. Keep in mind that these are only compatibility updates only, full updates to these products will follow in the coming weeks for v5.

Also, keep in mind that you’ll need to have Prepar3D v5 HF2 for Airbus A320 to be working.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
