The highly awaited Toliss A321 is due for release this week, as such, the Toliss team released the feature list of the upcoming aircraft.

Also announced in the post in the Toliss Facebook group was a price for the aircraft. The aircraft will be priced at $79 USD, $10 above the price of their A319 product.

The Toliss A321 was originally announced on the 6th of December 2019 with a massive amount of “hype” from the community. Since then, previews have been frequent from community members like livery painters and streamers alike.

Here is the full feature list for the Toliss A321:

Highlights:

  • Detailed FMGS with SIDs/STARs/Airways, performance prediction, temporary, alternate and secondary flight plans, fix info, etc.
  • Choice of CFM or IAE engine, affecting aircraft performance and fuel burn
  • Choice of sharklets or classic wing tip fences. (Affects aircraft drag.)
  • Very accurate FBW implementation, including reversion to alternate and direct law
  • Detailed systems including fault injection for currently about 90  failures. (Electric, hydraulic, flight controls, engine, etc.)
  • Officially licensed by Airbus
  • Commercial “Turbine Sound Studios” sounds for CFM and IAE engines included.

Detailed FMGS:

  • Support of SID/STAR, including all leg types (Arc, course or heading to intercept, Radius to Fix, Holdings, etc.)
  • Temporary and alternate flight plans
  • Secondary flight plan
  • Full VNAV guidance with TOC, TOD, Deceleration point, speed limits, fuel prediction, etc.
  • Altitude and speed constraints as the real aircraft deals with them
  • Ability to change the selected STAR while already in the STAR
  • Support for go-arounds and diversions
  • Step altitudes
  • Airway support
  • Fix Info page
  • Latitude/Longitude crossings
  • 2 independent MCDUs and autopilots
  • Drag, thrust and fuel consumption models adapt to selected engine type and wing tip device
  • Choice between new FMGS with temporary flight plan even during  preflight phase or old FMGS with direct editing of the active plan during preflight phase.

Top-notch aircraft systems:

  • ToLiss uses the QPAC Fly-by-wire and autopilot module with numerous improvements
  • Flight control system with hinge moment modelling giving realistic float angles for surfaces that are lost due to system faults
  • Custom TCAS with Traffic and Resolution Advisory based on real aircraft logic
  • Brake temperature model based on the detailed physics of heat transfer between the individual brake components
  • Hydraulics model in which the pressure is dependent on usage. This  is most notable when dropping to RAT mode or with and engine windmilling
  • Detailed model of each ADIRU including alignment, small pressure  sensor differences between the units, switching of sources for PFDs
  • Custom air conditioning model supporting high altitude operations  at airports like Cusco in Peru or La Paz in Bolivia without spurious  warnings
  • Flight warning system with ECAM actions supporting numerous system  failure scenarios, e.g. engine failures, generator failures, hydraulic  failures
  • Fault injection system allowing to trigger system faults either at a specific point in flight or randomly during a flight phase

Eye- and ear-candy:

  • Detailed 3D cockpit with high quality texturing
  • 3d exterior model with CFM and IAE engine
  • Choice between classic wingtip fences or modern sharklets (controlled via livery names)
  • Each aircraft comes with licensed high definition sounds from  Turbine Sound Studios, the market leader for aircraft sounds in the  FSX/P3D world
  • Rain effects thanks to the librain library provided to the x-plane community by Saso Kiselkov
  • Custom particle effects for engine heat trail, landing gear smoke on touch-down etc. (X-Plane 11 only)
  • Standby compass that can be stowed, cockpit door that opens, fully modelled cabin, etc.

Usability features:

  • Situation loading and saving. It is possible to save the flight at any point in time and resume it another day. This can also be used,  e.g., to save the position just before approach and practice just the  approach many times
  • Autosaving allows recovering where you left off, should the Xplane session end unexpectedly
  • Jumping waypoint-to-waypoint through the cruise phase: Shorten your flight to focus on the more interesting parts as you like
  • 4 different startup configuration from Cold and Dark to engines running and ready to go
  • In-screen popup displays or use of x-plane windows for popups (X-Plane 11 only)

Compatibility:

  • X-Plane 10 (64 bit only) and X-Plane 11 on the following operating systems:
  • Windows 7 64bit and Windows 10 64bit
  • Linux 64bit. (Tested on Ubuntu 18.04)
  • Apple Macintosh OS X 10.11 and up.

Threshold will ensure to be the first to let you know when the Toliss A321 is released.
