ToLiss Updates A321 to v1.1 (XP11)

Toliss, a well-known aircraft developer, has today released, as promised in the previous days, a major update for their Airbus A321 rendition for X-Plane 11. This is a major update to the aircraft featuring numerous new features and not a small amount of bug fixes.

It has been made clear in the past, that ToLiss aims to have all their aircraft on the same level of quality and so this update should bring the A321 to the A319 level after the recent major update.

Featuring FMOD sounds, added simplified rain effects that work under Vulkan, or alternatively Metal, completely reworked PFD and ND drawing to improve the accuracy and performance, completely reworked RAD NAV page, or improved 3D model, for example.

Further, the aircraft will no longer require a reload after the activation, the TCAS has been adapted to the new interface and the aircraft is fully compatible with the TCA Sidestick and the upcoming TCA Throttle Quadrant. As usual, the complete changelog can be found below as well as the instructions on how to update.

If you want to purchase the aircraft, you can do so through the X-Plane.org Store for $79.90.

In order to download the update, simply run X-Updater located at the aircraft files. Java is required in order for this method to work properly. You will also need to own the aircraft for at least 12 hours until updating. The updater should automatically download 150MB of new files. You can alternatively download the files again from the store.

Changelog

Major new features:

  • Sound system fully transitioned to FMOD sounds including new sounds such as door opening/closing, electric hydraulic pump, brake fans, and many more
  • Joystick command support for TCA Sidestick and Thrust levers
  • Addition of the Bottom of Descent and Descent profile intercept indicators
  • Added simplified rain effects that also work under Vulkan/Metal
  • Complete rework of PFD and ND drawing to improve representation accuracy and drawing performance (time required to draw cut in half on our test platform)
  • Complete rework of the RAD NAV page, including custom VOR and NDB reception and decoding routines, appropriate ID vs frequency NavAid tuning and FMGS messages when performing manual ILS overrides.
  • Big improvements to the SmartCopilot support: Both sides can brake, sidestick inputs are used simultaneously with Airbus style input priority logic, Popup MCDU is now useable

Minor new features:

  • Added Stay-out zone for IAE engine on ground
  • Adapted TCAS to new XP11.50 interface – now supporting up to 63 other aircraft
  • Adapted TCAS to not issue alerts when flying parallel approaches, e.g. in KSFO
  • Fine tuning of engine start timing to better reflect the differences between CFM and IAE engine
  • Fine tuning of engine auto ignition logic
  • Activation does not required aircraft reload anymore
  • Idle factor on MCDU status page can be used to stretch or shrink the descent
  • INIT page values CRZ TEMP and TROPO enter into the vertical FMGS predictions
  • The pilot can now overwrite the ALTN fuel on the MCDU INIT B page
  • Added functionality on OHP maintenance panel, like Blue pump override and FADEC ground power
  • Main landing gear compression sounds are now faded in accordance with 3d sound fading option
  • Improved flight phase logic for serial traffic circuits with full stop landings in between.

Bug fixes:

  • Improved landing gear strut absorber deflections for more realistic ground attitude
  • Fixed SD page displayed after landing after engine shutdown – it’s back to DOOR/OXY as it should be
  • Reduced time to disarm slides after landing when engines shut down and beacon off.
  • Fixed numerous replay issues
  • Fixed ISI reset issue on power transients
  • Fixed TCAS panel CLR button behaviour
  • Fixed cockpit brake pedal animations.
  • GPWS does not issue glide slope warning anymore, unless you are on a ILS approach.
  • LAND ASAP is now displayed above secondary failures, as it is in real life.
  • Fixes to automatic SD page selection logic when ENG mode selector is set to IGN.
  • Improvements to the display logics of the MCDU flight plan page.
  • Corrected load assignments between generators to avoid generating power out of nothing.
  • 3d cockpit model fixes
  • Display of minima in the FMA now starts at 250NM from destination even when in phase cruise
  • Improved Glide Slope tracking performance
  • Improved GPWS mode 2 performance to reduce occurance of false warnings
  • Fixed behaviour of FIX INFO page when two radials are entered and the first radial is cleared
  • When copying the active FPLN into the SEC FPLN, the SEC FPLN page is now called automatically
  • In DES phase, when extending flaps or slats, the managed speed target remains unaffected now, as it should
  • When moving the thrust levers into reverse prior to touch down, the associated ECAM warning now self-clears upon touch-down
  • Speed target in GA phase reduced to Green dot (rather than 250kts/CI speed)
  • During TO, in SRS mode, the magenta bug now remains on the V2 mark, but the AP controls pitch to achieve a speed between V2+10 and V2+20 when all engines are operating
  • KEDW is now available as an airport again.
