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.

        My scenery for Greenland doesn't look so good as yours... I made scenery for BGBW, but I haven't been able to keep it updated with the various service updates for the sim... We need MS to give more love to such a great continent.

          No screenshot this time but I tried to takeoff from what is left at the Berlin Gatow Airport.

          I hope somebody makes a mod for this airport one day :/
          if you are looking for the airport, it's close to DB243 :

            I took the DC-6 from berlin Gatow to Faßberg Air Base and then fully loaded back to Berlin Tempelhof.

                So I flew from Zurich to Innsbruck and was able to unload my cargo at one of main gates.
                As I was grabbing a bite to eat I saw this spotter with a huge camera snapping away like crazy on my DC-6.

                He said this was a very rare bird at LOWI, and he was fascinated by it and especially the big radial engines. Here is one of the closeups he was able to snap.

                He showed me the pic he snapped thru the LCD screen on his camera....I was impressed:

                He said "Man I wish I could get closer to it and get some interesting angles of those engines!" I said "Let me see what I can do", hehe.
                I got him admitted to the ramp with me as an escort, and he went nuts on the pics.

                He said "I wish I could get up in the cargo hold and snap some from in there"....Being the pilot I had some pull in getting that request fulfilled.

                He even squeezed around the cargo we were still unloading to get this great pic from the other side

                He then went back outside and continued snapping...this one was my favorite...managed to get the moon in frame.


                Great shot of #4

                #3 against the fuse as the background...

                Finally, the crew was doing some maint. on #3 and had the ramp up to her....he looked at me, motioned his head towards the top of the ramp....I hooked a safety belt to him and up he went.

                He thanked me for letting get some great shots of this very photogenic bird, and I told him it was my pleasure and look forward to seeing these shots on all the popular aviation spotter's websites.
