ToLiss A319 Air France Evening Impression

While playing around with X-Plane items, issues, and testing this and that, I missed something in my recent released ToLiss A319 review … an evening flight impression. Yes, I know, I had a couple of external screenshots, but not too many and nothing of the 3D cockpit and most of the time we’re sitting in this area, right? With that idea in mind, and with the upcoming special ToLiss e-Newsletter, I decided to add a bunch of exclusive evening screenshots to our dedicated Google+ channel.

The outcome is awesome, I promise you and worth to have a look into these exclusive shots.

And yes, you’re curious I assume? These dedicated A319 Air France screenshots can be found at our dedicated X-Plained Google + page. While at our Google page, don’t forget to check all the other screenshot collections.

And in case you missed the great ToLiss news, don’t forget to check out our comprehensive ToLiss A319 review. Enjoy!

3j (jörn-jören-jörensön) Lua Plugins

Important Updated information: 3jFPS-wizard Optimized for X-Plane 11

Change log for 3jFPS-wizard XP11 Version 1.0:
This version is optimized for X-Plane 11.xx, but keep in minds that it’s not compatible with any other “auto-LOD” plugin (like AUTO_LOD1.3 or 3jFPS-control)

X-Plained.Com is pleased to announce that from today (June 6th, 2017) we’re able to host and promote – of course with the approval of Jörn-Jören Jörensön aka 3j – his “3j Lua script plugins for either X-Plane 10.51 or for both X-Plane versions, including X-Plane 11.

We all know “3j” from his famous “3jFPS-control” plugin script, that works in combination with X-Friese FlyWithLua script. Just to remind you for those who aren’t familiar with 3jFPS-control:

– Smoothly adapting view distance depending on FPS
– Smoothly adapting clouds quality depending on FPS
– Nice graphical display modes
– See avg. FPS, FPS-variation, effect of plugin at a glance
– Manual mode to test effect and find out best settings

Knowing this, it’s time to check out what other Lua script plugins 3j offers?

3J wrote Lua scripts for a FPS wizard, cabin sounds, pimping your clouds and the 3j library. Curious where and what to find?  Let’s check it out. On the following links you can find all “3j” his Lua scripts of which, what I mentioned before, his FPS Control is well known and often used.:

On behalf of Jörn-Jören Jörensön, enjoy!

ToLiss Airbus A319 Review

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen felt that something extraordinary needed to be reviewed; the ToLiss Airbus A319.

You and I can ask ourselves the question; What is then so special about this “another” small Airbus aircraft? Are there not enough of those small Airbus aircraft on the X-Plane market? Why another Airbus aircraft?

Besides that ToLiss is a brand new name/developer, the unique Airbus FBW (Fly-by-Wire) system comes from the well-known QPAC. This time, the ToLiss has a bit more to offer then the older QPAC. Ho ho, hold on, not a bit more, a lot more!

Is it worth the investment and is it worth to train your flying skills? Angelique tried to find the answers for you and flew to Toulouse Blagnac Airport and tested the ToLiss A319 for you. And was it a success, did she got an answer to all her questions? This and much more can be read in her comprehensive review. Enjoy!

Update … simHeaven X-Europe 2.0

We would like to inform you with an updated X-Europe from SimHeaven.

X-Europe 2.0 for X-Plane 10/11 is released and ready to download, test and discover, download size is 4.6 GB.

This version 2.0 is a major update, to solve crashes few people had using version 1.0, those people reported it works now without any problems on their systems. It is compatible (with only one minor change, see included manual) with XP10 and fully compatible with XP11.20VR. Changes from 1.0 to 2.0 are

  • OSM only even for Italy, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia,
  • roads on airports eleminated
  • aerials are now in layer 3
  • carwash, petrol stations, fastfood, parasols at beaches, more trees in cities added
  • further increased, unbelievable performance

Further changes are described in the change log on the download page and in the download file,
actual issues are reported at and if you want to take a prior look,
here is the manual available:

X-Europe is a scenery using XP11 objects (with LR permission) like the standard scenery, but the objects are not set on an autogen rule, they are set like they are in OpenStreetMap (OSM) data, which leads to a more realistic (some people say stunning) look and feel. See the results of different demo flights with older versions (beta and 1.0) on YouTube, even a comparison between various scenery configurations (Ortho4Xp, Standard, X-EUROPE):

This is the first step with default objects for Europe, the second step will bring localized objects for countries, so you will recognize where you fly if you simply look outside the window. :) It’s planned to make small country packages for e.g. Italy/Mediterranean area, France, the Alps, Denmark, GB, Norway and so on. The country packages will change objects in this country or region to typical objects.
