“The A32NX Project is a community-driven open source project to create a free Airbus A320neo in Microsoft Flight Simulator that is as close to reality as possible. It aims to enhance the default A320neo by improving the systems depth and functionality to bring it up to payware-level, all for free.”
Having great fun with this, as it pretty much saves airliners on MSFS. It must be difficult for the modding team as Asobo ‘Keystone Cop’s’ each update with some chaos, but they’ve done some very nice things.
A really short summary is that this is like the Zibo 737 for XP11, but the A320 for MSFS.
Easiest way to get it is from here:
The downloader app is worth grabbing, and I recommend the usually very stable ‘Development’ version as the latest and greatest.
Lots and lots to talk about, so just some quick screens to get an idea of all the things they’ve added over the top of the stock aircraft:
Cold and Dark in the unmistakable puke blue of the bus:
A proper (ish, don’t you real pilots start causing trouble in my pretend thread ) external power start, with proper ADIRS alighnment.
Improved ECAM (sp) messaging. A buckload of better MCDU menu re-writes:
Proper Datalink AOC, with company messages displayed!
Decent INIT pages at last! (I’m going to leave off the exclamation point, so take it as a given)
Fuel and Weight planning
Flight progress modes properly modelled, including Flex take offs
Much Improved Flight Plan
Empty seat, so double the work
Nice Weather Radar plus TCAS TA
Updated ENG, Bleed, Pressure, APU screens
Pretending the weather in CYVR is better than it is:
Works great in VR, with OpenXR on WMR doing miracles with about 30 fps and reprojection (public release for this Dec 22nd I think).
