FlyJSim Releases Four Patches for Q4XP
Written by on November 5, 2021
After a successful launch, the team from FlyJSim has throughout the past week released already four patches for the Q4XP focusing on improving the aircraft based on the community feedback they received. While some of them are really insignificant, there are a few which bring a lot of noticeable changes to the addon.
All four patches are from most aspects fixing bugs and tuning various features of the aircraft. As for the more important changes, the developers have further worked on the UNS units to prevent crashes in some scenarios, added new commands for more flexibility, and improved how the flight plan is displayed on the displays.
Improvements were also done to VNAV and various switches throughout the flight deck. All changelogs for all four patches can of course be found below in the article.
