January 25, 2019
Blue Sky Star Simulations, also known as simply BSS, have released a major update to their flagship sound-pack for the FlightFactor A320. The changes were originally announced via Facebook yesterday afternoon, along with an appeal for beta testers.
Among the largest changes comes news of a complete overhaul of the engine sounds in 1.3, something that they've kept under wraps until now. Here's the full changelog, as of yesterday;
Heat blur/contrails now are working
New wind system
Mid wing and engine nacelle wind
All electric contactors remade
E&E bay transformers sound
PTU distance fixed
Advanced settings for Switching/Levers/buttons etc
Avionics caused loud speaker pop (when off and on)
PAX volume, noise off
outside ambiance when front door is open
ground roll/brake sounds
Air conditioning/packs improved
Avionic vent sounds improved
Avionic start beep
Avionic start bus power high freq. noise
blades windmill sounds
complete outside engine sounds all 360 degrees with start/stop sounds (full remade)
jet blast sounds hitting fuselage while aircraft is on the ground with max power, disappears when aircraft leaving the ground effect.
Intake rush sounds (smart), depending on thrust input
Engine spooldown gool, low thrust, spooling down famous CFM sound.
Custom high thrust that causes engine to whine more at around 70-80% N1 which fades away with more air into cowling and gets replaced by steady "saw" sound.
N2 Core sounds
All engine sounds inside change every 3 seats, like they suppose to, basically every PAX seat has its own authentic sound of engine.
Jet blast rumble (back)
CFM buzzsaw fixed volume.
