Today third-party developers had news to share about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
First of all, FlyByWire launched an experimental version of its A32NX mod for the default Airbus A320 NEO, bringing forth the implementation of the custom flight management system.
This is a very relevant update, as it improves the navigation ability and predictability of the aircraft rather massively. Being an experimental version, it may have issues, which you can find here.
Below you can read the new features introduced in this version, while we wait for it to be implemented in the development version and ultimately in the stable version.
Below you can watch a trailer and read an official features list.
- High detail models
- Partial internal model
- Detailed satellite imagery surrounding the airport
- Custom ground lines and buildings
- Highly detailed textures, Physically Based Rendering (PBR), reflective and realistic textures
- High-resolution 5m DEM data
- Minimal performance impact
- Compiled to reduce LOD morphing
- Self-contained product
