I'm somewhat underwhelmed.

This looks like a nice feature, knowing FSL it will be well simulated, timing however is a bit off for us in the northern hemisphere.

I thought I was finished with deicing when I retired from American Airlines. At least it will be warmer this time.

Looks great. I assume windshield effects is the next thing they'll show off, to go with this feature.

Interesting... I guess?

That’s pretty cool!  I would have been excited to just get an A319 but this is the “icing” on the cake (sorry 🙂 )

That's very exciting! Couldn't wish for something better !  Icing is a a crucial parameter in any airliner and that's the first time that we will really use the anti-icing systems in the simulation instead of pretending that we are using them as of now. The depth of their modeling and effects quality seems amazingly well done..

Agree.

Better to have real operation decisions to make than just eye candy for the sake of it.

This we get both and for good reasons.

Sure we will have to wait a bit to try it but icing that affects aircraft performance is huge.

After reading the statement I am hyped for this!

At first, I thought it's just a visual enhancement or typical eye candy. However, they have said they also simulated the icing model with respect to airframe performance degradation, now that's the REAL THING!

I know some people say they are underwhelmed, but this is a feature missing from most study level aircraft. I think it's a welcome addition.

A pity that it will not make it's way into the A320 too …

When they say in the forum it is a first timer ( in that degree of detail ) in desktop flight simulation, they aren't actually correct … There is at least PSX, the 744 sim, and it's not the only example....

I wish the 319 is offered as an upgrade from the 320 too - not as a "ab-initio" offer :-)

Did you read the announcement?

Will you be adding this to the A320-X?

Yes, but not yet. The plan is to add the icing model to the A320-X in a future update. Obviously it’s not a cut and paste job – just like with the A319-X, the A320-X icing simulation will be custom-tuned and verified against a huge number of real-world flights.”

That's a surprising response from someone who should understand better than most what they have implemented

My advice would be to use that excellent P3D option called "setting the date and time" :wink:

Finally a nice feature after burning brake, tire explosion, oil temp from PMDG, we will see a new way to simulate our hobby and not only do the checklist and fly from A to B.

This time you need to be a pilot in all aspect or you will simulate a disaster.LOL

Super excited about this! I haven't really seen that coming.

Finally a reason to de-ice in the winter... Quite nice, that they managed to built into GSX.

I'm no sure I get your post...

  1. It is coming to the current A320-X - but most likely only for the P3Dv4 edition... (did you read the announcement?!)
  2. The PSX 744 isn't exactly 'desktop flight simulation' in my opinion. But to each their own... (<-- Uh, I probably get slaughtered for that one!)
  3. The A319 is an expansion upon the existing A320-X base package.

Very clever programming no doubt, they are clever people. But I can't help how I feel.

Wow, this is going to be really interesting.  KHPN is really crappy in winter (NE) and knowing I can deice just like I see Jetblue doing is very exciting!
