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,

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.

    [19MAR21] A round of small updates for the 777 product line were just released via PMDG Operations Center


    A few moments ago we pushed a set of updates for the entire 777 P3D product line. This is another minor-cleanup and nuisance removal update that is available for you via the PMDG Operations Center micro-update process. To obtain the update, simply launch the PMDG Operations Center, click Aircraft and Liveries and then click Product Updates.

    From this page, you will be notified of an update for the entire range of 777 to bring them up to build 1.11.1201.

    The change list for this update cycle is pretty brief:

    PMDG 777 Full Product Line - 1.11.1201 - 19MAR21
    ================================================== =======
    0009587: [General - Unsure] PVD Inop on both takeoff and landing and previous update 1.11.1183 (rsrandazzo)
    0009582: [Main Panel - EICAS Messaging Issues] AUTOBRAKE advisory message intermittent on braking disconnect (rsrandazzo)
    0009612: [AFDS - Thrust Modes] Protection against low speed climbs (emvaos)
    0009605: [External Model - Geometry] 200ER Beacon no splash effect on Ground (jbrown)
    0009604: [External Model - Geometry] 200ER TLA insufficient to reach m/switch for T/O thrust range system logic at deeply derated thrust or very high assumed temp. (rsrandazzo)
    0009591: [Systems - Wheels & Brakes] Autobrake deceleration rates after 1183 update (rsrandazzo)
    0009588: [FMS - Route/Legs Pages] CLB page TRANS ALT is affecting how the altitude will show in a STAR VECTORS segment instead of the Descent Forecast TL page (emvaos)
    0009597: [EFB - Performance and Computational] 200ER : MTOW changes not being retained after sim reload and EFB MTOW in OPT TO (emvaos)
    0009603: [External Model - Geometry] 777W incorrect nose gear contact position (jbrown)
    0009581: [External Model - Geometry] Push Back tug is loading with front wheels turned to the left. (rsrandazzo)
    0009594: [External Model - Liveries] American Alrlines N753AN livery Tail number issue (psterling)

    Over the next few weeks, we are going to be pushing updates to the 747 and 737 product lines in order to roll out updates for those product lines that have accumulated as a normal part of the product maintenance process, and other changes that resulted from discoveries we made during the 777 development cycle such as eliminating the "acceleration with excessive AOA" bug and those types of things.

    I don't have any schedule information for those changes largely because I don't want to hem myself into a schedule that we might/might not be able to make- so watch here and we will let you know as we roll them out!

    Thanks again for all of your support of the 777- we hope you have some fun flying planned for her this weekend!

    I'm going to grab some dinner and then I'll be back with some further updates on the Road Ahead!
