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.

    for PFPX maximum PMDG(737,747,777) weights

    Hello, I have created separate data for all PMDG planes (737,747,777) on my PFPX by looking at FMC myself, but for example, MTOW 78.9 appears as exactly how can I learn their fractions?

    Welcome to the PMDG forum, please note a forum rule we agreed to includes a full name on all posts.

    The EFB is a easy place to find all weights, number of pax and fuel capacity.

      For that one you can get the weight numbers from the aircraft.cfg file.

      The aircraft.cfg files are always in the <p3d>\simobjects\airplanes\ .... pmdg 747-400 folder. Don't have exact folder name, but every aircraft type has it's folder in this location.

          My FMC and Aircraft.cfg say different things for Empty Weights (FMC 42.1 and Aircraft.cfg 41.412) which one should I trust?

            I believe the "Zero Fuel Weight" with zero people on board still includes operating fluids like hydraulic fluids and engine oils which are not there in the "Empty Weight". So for a flightplanner the CDU ZFW would be the correct one.

              What does the EFB show you.

              This isn't correct. Hydraulics fluid and engine oil absolutely has to be part of the empty weight, as you can't operate the airplane without it, and the amount you're supposed to have doesn't change.

                Yep makes sense… I thought I had read this here but I can‘t find it in the search anymore. There are strange discrepancies then in the PMDG files. That should be clearified by someone who knows what they did there.

              Can I see Empty weights from EFB? The data of EFB MTOW,MLW,Maximum Taxi Weights and MZFW fully match that of FMC, only the Empty in Aircraft.cfg and the Empty in FMC do not match.

                I just looked at the 777-200ER and saw the same imbalance for Empty Weights. Aircraft.cfg and FMC show different values.

                  When available, use the EFB empty weight over all others. However, to ensure you are reading empty weight, your fuel and payload need to be zero'd out with either the EFB (followed by a send to aircraft) or the FS Actions Fuel and Payload menus.

                  Writes the same values ​​in Aircraft.cfg and EFB(for empty weights and other weights MTOW,MLW,ZFW,). Most of the PFPX profiles for other made PMDG have EFB and aircraft.cfg value, so I will adjust them according to EFB.
