I'm assuming sir Thomas Ruth has been too busy with real-world endeavours and possibly Erick Cantu's model meshes to be working on these?

I want an honorific too. Can I be Don?

But no, that's not why the FSX models haven't been released yet

hey to PA team, the model looks great but there's one thing's been bothering me a lil... probably you guys wont do this but I just wanna show what's bothering me.

Image

Now I don't know if it's because of the modelling limitation but it doesn't seem right.
I'm not judging or anything but if you ever (i said ever, even if you dont it's fine) do an update again, can you guys make it smoother of a curve?

Thanks
:P

Just a quick question: do the old repaints work for the v2.1? Did not find anything on that in the forums...

The bitmap names are the same and the mappings seem to be the same, so I guess you could say, "Yessir, the old(er) repaints should work too." :)

well actually no, the seams and rivets are quite different and the engine mapping aint exactly the same, you will have to remove the green colours in the engine paintkit, replace the green to match the neighbourhood colours.

But overall it fits fine

Hey Guys,

I downloaded the new A320 paintkit and I've a question.

Why are there so much copy layers? I don't understand this, for example fuse 41 layer copy or so on?

Can someone please explain to me how you install this? All I have in the v2.1 folder is models. Do I just replace the old model folders in my old A320 installed aircraft with the new ones and replace the textures? I am so confused. The Instructions make no sense. And when installing the FSX models, where do I place the file? Do I replace something with the FSX models? Please help! Thanks!

sorry I don't have fsx, but what I did was to just delete the old model folder from the project airbus A320 in the aircraft folder, then add all three of the 100 and 200 model folders in it. Then replaced the data in the aircraft.cfg in the folder. But that's how I did.

The other way is too copy all the 4 folders that came with the 2.1 you should have 1 folder for the A320-111, 1 folder for the A320-214, 1 for A320-232 and 1 folder for the Project Airbus A320 v2.1.
Copy all 4, paste them in your FS aircraft folder, then paste your textures in their respective variants, and replace the aircraft.cfg with your existing one.

Is there a A320-211 version for the new 2.1 model? I saw a repaint for a Air France plane and it says it's for the new 2.1 model. It says it's for the A320-211 version. But I don't have a 211 model. The models I have are 111, 232, and 214.

So basically the old A320's that are installed, I keep them expect replace the model folder with the ones provided in the download from the v2.1 folder? But when I go into the "Project Airbus A320 V2.1" folder there is only the model folder documents and nothing else so where do I get my updated aircraft.cfg from? Also, do I need to add new effects to my effects folder for the new v2.1 or keep the old ones, or delete them all together?

Thanks so much for the help!

well the effects you can keep it. So the Project airbus A320 v2.1 folder you are supposed to have 4 folders; like below:

Image

in the basepack folder there are 4 folders; like below:

Image

And if you open one of the variant folders, example here the A320-214 you should see this:

So basically all the A320 models in the download are the updated v2.1 models? The download had the 4 A320 models but only one of them was labeled v2.1 so I thought that was the only folder that was updated to the new model. So from here what do I do to get v2.1 flying? Also, how do I install livery's? I downloaded the jetBlue pack on the A320 download page but there are only textures no text files that have the info I place into the aircraft.cfg. This has to be the most confusing install I have ever done. Thanks again! I really appreciate it!

All the model files are inside 'Project Airbus A320 V2.1'; there are 3 other folders because the .air file and aircraft.cfg differ between the -111, -214 and -232 variants. If you're wondering what these numbers mean the first number is the series, the second number is the engine make (1 is CFM and 3 IAE), and the third the engine model.

To install jetBlue:

1- Unzip the base pack in your FS9 folder

2- Unzip jetBlue in your Aircraft folder

3- Navigate to 'Project Airbus A320-232'

4- Double click '_Livery Installer_PA.bat' to run

First install the A320 V2 you want (model 100/200 engines IAE/CFM), then replace the model by the
corresponding one given in the the V2.1 version!
The V2.0 paints work with the the V2.1 version but there are also new V2.1 paints in the libraries!

I had already V2.0 installed in FSx.
I simply changed the MODEL to the new V2.1 model and eliminated in the aircraft.cfg the winglights
(because of the flexing wings on V2.1 the lights are incorporated in the model)
That's all, works without problems!
Only limitation: because it's an Fs9 model you cannot have a VC in fsx!

PA shuld seriously start focusing on developing products more for FSX it has a greater market, other payware companies have already been shutting down so should u(ur planes compete payware) as per me there is no proper vc for a380 in fsx vasfmc has shut down, u have provided models for 319,318 and 320 in FSX but no proper installation instructions and probably u dont see scope in 330,340 i no u must be busy with other things in ur schedule bt cmmon u leave ur work on fsx incomplete i have only been able to fly the a321 successfully but glitches with vasfmc always r there i expext a vc from u soon i m no high level guy fr FSX and do not even know a bit in other things but as a beginner guy i expext PA focuses on FSX too i love ur plane the a321 but never managed to install any other i posted my views regarding this, anyways at last keep up the good work with such great aircraft for fsx..........................................

Well, excluding your last sentence for which I say: "Thank you", one really does not know what's going on behind the scenes therefore, one really does not say what we should do and also, provided that we are NOT a payware company, we aren't obliged through money to follow what other payware companies are doing.

Just a slight hint, everybody on the forum accepts the fact that one can have problems with the English language but, writing you are as ur, for as fr and but as bt, only makes it illegible.

My guess is that there are more people flying FS9 than FSX in the world. I may be wrong of course, and I agree that as time goes on FSX is bound to grow. It must - FS9 is no longer available. :(
Either way, FS9 is still an important market and many companies continue to produce payware sceneries and aircraft for it.

On the freeware side of things, development of advanced aircraft for FS9 continues apace. Apart from PA, Milton Shupe's group are in full swing and there are many others.

I believe the reason why PA makes things for FS9 first, then FS10 is because more poor people use FS9. They simply don't have a goon enough computer to handle FSX, so they use FS9 and use freeware add-on aircraft. Yes, more people use FSX (probably), but they use payware add-on as well.

Well I'm not really poor, but my parents won't buy me a good computer, (mine has 2.40GHz single core, 1.25GB RAM, 128MB Graphic card), but I still use FSX. I'm thinking about switching to FS9 now.

FS9 vs FSX bla bla bla...

the important thing is... PA has supported FS9 and FSX all the way, the VC for the A380 I view as optional now, atleast we can have an a380 with good FPS and a VC (may not be the right one but it is a VC)
Now so long as PA release an FSX model of the A320 v2.1 then they can continue this support as atleast we can use every PA model with good FPS and a VC.

Go on PA, support FS9 and FSX all the way and we won't see forums turn into these horrible debates all the time. (so long as you don't go to MS flight) :D
