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 don't know where you got this $40 upgrade price from. The $40 was more of an example rather than anything concrete because as far as I'm aware, a price for the NG3 hasn't been announced. If the NG3 ends up costing $139, then those who purchased the NGXu at the time the incentive program was offered would only have to pay the $40 price difference because the NGXu cost $99. If the NG3 ends up costing $149, then it would be a $50 price difference. I think you see where I'm going here.

    Goodie goodie! The info on the MAX doesn't surprise me, but one can hope I can't wait for the B738 in MSFS! That is my all time favorite aircraft.

    The last Robert mentioned was that development of the MAX was "well along" but being delayed for as long as Boeing isn't comfortable with PMDG releasing it.

    I can't see the MAX coming in 2021, maybe late 2022 or 23, I would be VERY surprised if the MAX didn't release for MSFS, in fact (not wanting to start arguments) we may see a point where we are questioning if addons are going to come for P3D, hopefully not and we see both sims supported.

    As for releases, based off current information of the hope of seeing the 737 and 777 this year, I'm going the 737 in late September/early October, with a small chance of the 777 in December, price, who know's, the economies of scale for MSFS are unseen before, and we have seen substantially lower prices across all products including the DC6, another thing to bear in mind is the $40 upgrade price people where offered. I'm going $99-$119 for the base products and $15-$25 for expansions, but then I'm a eternal optimist ;P

    So, any ideas?

    Never posted before, but I wanted to hear everyone's thoughts! I'm not always up-to-date, but please inform or correct me if I'm wrong!

    I feel like I heard something about PMDG making a 737 MAX at some point. Anyone think this will be within the next year or so and/or if it's coming to MSFS as well as P5D? I'm curious =) As for the 737 for MSFS, my hopes are for November-ish. Could be completely wrong, obviously, but does this year truly sound realistic to anyone? What about the cost? My mind says $130+.
