Recognized as one of the most innovative companies of the last century, Airbus has created some truly incredible aircrafts that have really taken aerial travel to a whole new level. The Airbus A318-A321 is a fly-by-wire super aircraft that has been seen as one of the most pivotal changes to civil aircraft engineering and development of all-time. The immense change that it brought to the industry was, at the time, staggering.
This pack gives you access to one of the most enjoyable and revolutionary aircraft we’ve ever seen – and allows you to take to the skies of the world with it in full high-quality detail and realistic precision. With hours of research having been spent looking into specifics, and every single detail matches to photos and video footage of the Xtreme “Prologue” in action, this is the most realistic representation you will find on the web.
About The Airbus Xtreme “Prologue” Design
Version 0.85.2 of the design of the Airbus Xtreme “Prologue” brings all of the finest details to the forefront for you to enjoy. With every single system and component created using painstaking research and comparison processes, even the most minimal of cosmetic inclusions will have taken many hours to get just right. Additionally, every single aspect of the aircraft is going to be usable – if you see a switch, it will do something.
Smaller inclusions away from traditional aircraft features have been included, like MFD Screens & ECAMS systems. You’ll also be able to use your dashboard in the cockpit to auto plan a flight and watch the aircraft take full control, dealing with the climbing and speed like a professional would. You’ll also be able to see your performance inside the cockpit, with Fuel predictions & V-Speeds provided for you automatically.
As time goes on, this will be updated to include every feature possible including;
- Landing Gears
- Pressure Systems
- Warning systems
- Full dashboard support
This means that this representation of the Airbus is only going to get more refined as time goes on. When you add in the incredible 4096x4096 resolution textures creating in full 3dsMAX techniques that have more than 150,000 polygons, far more than traditional aircraft designs within the game, you will have one of the most authentic and impressive aircraft within the entire game. The aircrafts look and feel has been refined time and time again to get the perfect feeling and style that it deserves. With four separate models from A318-321 available, you have all the choices that you need to really take off into the skies in one of the most luxurious aircraft of all-time.
For example, new animations have been included to make the wheels and fan blades spin as they would in real life without any frame rate issues or unrealistic chopping and changing as the flight takes place. Everything reacts to your very touch and the features of the plane will move with you – slam on the brakes, and the wheels will show that perfectly.
The cockpit has been faithfully recreated on the real design of an Airbus interior, using hours of footage and imagery to create every last detail. From the arm rests for your own seat to the 3D windows to give you the real view of outside in perfect quality every little detail has been faithfully allowed to represent itself. Functionality is at its finest, too , with programming available from the traditional pop-up menus or from your 2D cockpit panels.
The system itself has been tested and approved by three independent Airbus pilots, and utilizes our own take on a fly-by-wire system that provides smooth control and easy flight maneuverability in the skies.

I like the product - I think. However, the review video is rubbish. The prologue above says "Sound quality is greatly reduced in the promotion videos." What sound quality? I presumed this to mean the actual simulation sounds, not a piece of music! What happened to the "... whole host of custom animations that include new Fanblade animation for smooth running New "no flicker" Wheel animations that rotate smoothly and behave correctly when you stand on the brakes." as proclaimed in the email blurb? I didn't see that much more than I would from a PMDG or Captain Sim promo video. Certainly not enough to make me want to buy it.
This is amazing... reality surpassed... using a cockpit cam, mounted from the sim pilots point of view makes it very difficult to tell the difference between the simulation and the real thing...
Refreashingly real , smooth lines etc etc . This one is a keeper , as close to real thing that I've seen in a while .
Just get the aerosoft a318/319 which is available for about £35
