PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    I just noticed the landing gear tip toe in the set of photos, my level of excitement just ramped up to a new level. Thank you again for this, Robert and team. I know you get your tuckus kicked in the forums for peoples personal preferences not being met or answered for sometimes but you guys truly do take the sim experience to a new level for me personally time and again.

    I check my Ops Center for the update notification for the LR and 3ER daily. Cheers.

      Looking forward to be flying some sweet Emirates liveries. A6-EMF and -EMJ are a personal fav. Flew on one (-EMD I think) back in 2014, when EK still had them in the fleet

        Awsome!! Finally THE original 777 in the same sim as all the other good airplanes!!! Can't wait to fly it in the United battleship grey and the BA World Tails liveries - two of the most iconic color schemes for the 777 in my memories.
        I know about the details of the landing gears and I highly appreciate them. I just wish the animations would work in relplay mode, because at the moment when they are visible, I'm busy taking off or landing the plane 😑

        Best regards,

        As we are using custom animation this will not happen, P3D can not read custom animations on replay.

              as usual, just because they are PMDG news, they never ever failed to be great news

              "I often wonder how many of you take the time to really examine just how detailed..." said Mr Randazzo. Actually I used to spend great deal of time replaying a nice landing or take off... when I had the luxury of, I think was called FS Recorded or FAPS (can't recall which one was the simplest, the one I used to use...) Today's options, which they are, unfortunately are not so straight forward and that nice habit has been put on hold from my side... regreatably . I did tell P3D though, to developed a facility that simple but efficient for their sim; see here if you miss that feature (Moderators, I couldn't find any rule in relation to links but if this is inappropriated please remove and accept my apologies).

              But yes, surely many do look back those flying actions and many more used to do it; it is a great joy, in particular with this fantastic add-onns, is just captivating to replay and replay again looking at all the angles...

              Cheers

It's also heavily utilized by airlines all over the globe for long hauls and short hauls alike. PMDG has done a wonderful job creating this aircraft for P3D. I can't wait to be able to access the 737, 747, and 777 in MSFS! It's great to hear that the PMDG team is working on MSFS projects! I look forward to the day MSFS becomes stable enough for PMDG's products to be available to purchase and fly in that sim. Until then, we'll enjoy them in P3D.

                        Was anything recently mentioned about the LNAV/FD logic update?

                        I thought I read that somewhere but I cannot find it.

                            I don’t suppose there is a transponder panel option in the new 777 is there? I’m always going on about it but it would be lovely ☺️ I shall be purchasing nonetheless. I didn’t get the 777 for P3D initially but as I will be flying BA flights I shall have to get the LR, ER and -300ER expansions at the same time

                              The current 777 is struggling with keeping the aircraft on decent profile during descend so I normally have to set the manual descent rate. 747 does it perfectly. Hope you fix it in this update.

                                Hi,
                                First I want to appreciate your efforts into flight sim. I am flying the 737,747 and 777. You create absolutely unique aircraft! I was wondering if you already know how the pricing for the 777-200ER will be.

                                  Unknown. But given the amount of engine options and the addition of the EFB my guess is around the price of the 747-8

                                    Nope, NDA still active. And I don‘t have the 777 anyway, GFO beta only.

                                  Good morning, I am anxiously waiting for the 777 for P3Dv5 and I have a question, will the 777-200 be launched only initially or 300 as well?
                                  Note: As soon as PMDG joins the MSFS goodbye P3D, it was very good but Loockhead stopped in time, we flew in a FSX simulator with repairs, the MSFS is all new, another level, but without PMDG I even uninstalled it.

                                      First, PMDG requires you to sign your posts with your first and last name, which you agreed to when you created an account here. Instructions on how to do so can be found here:

                                      https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...pdated-25feb19

                                      I'm a little confused by your question. The -200LR/F and -300ER will be getting updates, the -200ER will be launched. There was no mention of a -200 or -300 being done at all.

                                          Second, it would help if you posted in English, so we could try to answer your question.

                                                  Hi Robert,

                                                  Very exciting update. Cross fingers for the end of January! Thank you to you and your team for all your hard work and I hope you are all safe.

                                                  I was wondering if there would be any possibility of some more screenshots from the BETA testers?

                                                  Kind regards,

                                                  James

                                                    From a previous post, it appears they are still under NDA, so not at this time.
