Some very exciting news from FlightSimLabs today! They have shared a new preview video of the A320-X add-on in P3D v4 (shown below). And have also given us some interesting details about the new features introduced in the P3D v4 version, here’s all the details…
As our P3Dv4 A320-X beta testing continues, we promised a short video showing off some of the sound (and dynamic lighting work) we’ve done exclusively for P3D v4. In this video you will hear some of the new HD sounds we have added using our new custom built sound engine, which allow us to fine tune our new HD sounds and manipulate them by a whole range of camera and atmospheric properties.
Our new power plant sound-sets, crafted using HD recordings from both an A320-212 with CFM 56 5B4s and the A320-232 with IAE 2527 A5s utilize our new infrastructure to its full potential – and provide a truly unique sound environment that surpasses the limitations of the default sound engine of Prepar3D. The aircraft cabin has its own unique sound-set, and depending on where you choose to sit in the cabin, you’ll hear a variety of different sounds – buzz saw from the engines, the electric hydraulic pumps, lavatories flushing, even the slight knocking from the application of wheel brake.
In addition to this, we have also added a complete set of cabin PAs that play throughout your flight and are fully integrated with the aircraft. These can also be routed through the Audio Control Panel on the flight deck to either the speaker system, or a chosen headset device. We’ve also added the ability for pilots to record their own announcements and have them play back in the cabin.
Lastly, notice how our dynamic lights fade in and out. In our next set of previews, we’ll be showing more of the updated VC in P3D v4 in 4K, with our new Spotlights redesigned for P3D V4.
