ToLiss has today, as promised earlier this month, released a new major update for their rendition of the Airbus A321 fixing bugs, bringing new features as well as preparing the addon for the upcoming A321 NEO expansion which should be releasing on December 15th.

Titled as v1.2, as mentioned earlier, the update is mainly focused on bringing support for the A321 NEO expansion featuring the PW1100G and LEAP 1A engines, three new fuselage exit door configurations, A321 LR and XLR fuel tank configurations and weight envelopes as well as accurate fuel burn, climb performance and custom sounds.

Other than that, the new update features completely reworked engine failure handling, improved lateral control laws, fixed issues with Minimum callouts or alternate flight plans, for example. The complete changelog can be found below in the article.

The aircraft can be updated by either downloading the new files from the store and replacing the old ones, or by using the updater located in the aircraft files. The A321 NEO expansions is still scheduled to be released on December 15th for a price of $29.99 (approx. €25).

If you want to purchase the aircraft, you can do so through the X-Plane.org Store for $79.

Changelog (v1.2)

Major new features:

  • Support for the NEO package addon featuring the PW1100G engine and the LEAP 1A engine, including 3 new fuselage exit configurations, A321 LR and XLR fuel tank configurations, A321LR and XLR weight envelopes, accurate fuel burn and climb performance, custom TSS sounds etc.
  • Option to use imperial units for FMGS, weights and cabin temperatures
  • Complete rework of engine failure handling: ECAM actions and speed target rework, beta target added

Minor new features:

  • Improved lateral control laws for better handling during engine failures Added injected faults to the situation save.
  • Complete rework for the managed speed computation for a given CI during the climb phase
  • Retuning of the fuel burn for the existing engine types (IAE + CFM)
  • Rework of the EWD for better accuracy of the representation
  • Livery specific configuration items can now be done via a livery configuration file
  • Added support for approaches with MA route points between the MAP and the runway, like e.g. LOWI RNP-Y for Rwy 08

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed issue with disappearing LOC indication when flying the LOC backcourse
  • Fixed issues with Minimum callouts when they did not coincide with Radio altitude callouts
  • Fixed issue with inconsistent runway naming between procedures and scenery
  • Improved smart copilot synchronization of the MCDUs
  • Fixed a bug leading to x-plane freeze when changing runway after a go around (under certain conditions)
  • Hydraulic brake accumulator pressure does not change anymore when changing from yellow supply to accumulator supply without changing amount of braking
  • Fixed an issue with alternate flight plan loading if alternate plan is in “fms” format.
  • Cabin chime queue is fixed so that no chimes are lost anymore.
  • Corrected the logic for AC power supply to the system 1 fuel pumps. Direct supply from GEN1 now depends on the GEN 1 LINE switch as it should.
  • Corrected vertical guidance for LOWI RNP RWY08 approaches. (You have to make sure to be at flaps 2 when crossing WI750/WI810, the subsequent 3.77deg slope cannot be flown clean without accelerating)
  • ILS tracking retuning in LOC and G/S
  • BSCU failures now actually do something.
  • Limited alternate braking pressure to 1000psi
  • Fixes to the VOR cone of confusion model you do not lose DME or identifier anymore
  • Improvements to ILS auto tuning
  • Standby DDRMI now uses the same datasource as the VOR/ADF needles on the ND.
