After originally releasing the highly awaited A340-600 for X-Plane 11 in October of last year, ToLiss has released quite an extensive update to the aircraft, bringing it to version 1.0.2

Included in the update are a plethora of interesting new features as well as extensive bug fixes. Some of these features include the addition of an animated RAT, a CVR self-test, flap and nose gear animations to the taxi camera, and much more. It should be noted, however, that the CPDLC is still to be added. Although the framework is there, it is not yet fully implemented into the aircraft. For further information, the full changelog is viewable below.

Minor new features:

  •  The electrical system now features a battery self-test
  •  ISCS sliders now allow editing the values with a keyboard for better precision
  •  Custom landing gear particle model
  •  Custom landing gear tire rotation model to allow individual speeds for the forward and aft wheels on the same bogey
  •  Cargo fire extinguishing test is now operational
  •  Fault injections can now trigger on increasing or on decreasing values of altitude and airspeed
  •  Added flap animation and nose landing gear animation to taxi cam
  •  Added CVR self-test
  •  Added chocks to keep aircraft in place at the gate
  •  Reworked cockpit, ground contact and engine sounds
  •  Added animated hydraulic lines to the landing gear
  •  Added animated RAT 

Bug fixes:

  •  Resolved an issue with the brake fans
  •  DC BAT bus shows invalid data if BAT1 and BAT2 are switched off
  •  When preselecting a heading on the ground, the FCU heading window will initialize with the current heading
  •  Reduced IRS drift values by half for more realistic values
  •  Made behaviour of CLR button XPDR panel more realistic
  •  When selecting flaps 1 for landing, the Status page will now be called (As it should) if the status is not normal
  •  When status paged called automatically, the STS key now lights up and can be used to remove the status page
  •  When Using Auto Brake to full stop, pressing pedals won't disengage it like is the case in real life
  •  Minor FMGS fixes
  •  Corrected locations of wing condensation emitters.
  •  Moved location of engine particle emitters further aft to better match engine location
  •  Fixed standby compass
  •  Corrected pack inhibition condition on the ground with doors open (applies now only when engines are running)
  •  Fixed animation of spoiler 3 actuator on right wing
  •  Fixed flex temp range
  •  Fixed FBW roll angle limits
  •  Improved AP turn direction depending on FCU heading rotation knob
  •  FCU green button lights now respond to the ANN LT switch as they should (instead of the FCU background light rotary)
  •  SD Weight/CG on ground indication is now a function of the data entered on the INIT B page and will be replaced by FMGEC estimated weight in flight
  •  Retuned idle thrust for more accurate descent profile following
  •  Improved reliability of automatic pitch trim setting prior to take-off
  •  Increased ground cart pressure for better engine start performance

For owners of the A340, the new update is available to download via the X-Plane.org store or by using the SkunkCrafts updater.
