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.

    Great news Thank you Robert for this update. I hope that this resolves the GPS behavior in FP mode where the the Aircraft keeps flying on circle after changing a waypoint! I have seen this in previous flight where I have to force DIRECT TO to avoid plane retuning to the departure airport or sel Heading mode to fly desire heading.
    Looking fwd to see the JETs soon! Rolando

      Are beta testers free to talk about/show off the LNAV update?

        I didn't take the DC-6 but my son bought it and frankly I'm blown away by the quality.
        I look forward to the release of your 737, if it is of the same level I will enjoy it.
        For the moment I use the one of the MarketPlace not to name it but at the exit of yours I believe that it will join the cemetery of the birds

                Flying your magnificent DC-6 has got me even more excited for the 737 - we've needed one for so long in MSFS. Thanks for your hard work team!

                  I cant wait for the day the PMDG finally releases the 737 Max. We need this aircraft as well since it is flying again.

                        Hello everyone, apologies if this question is not pertinent, I've already looked through the forum using the search function and I've also googled to see if anyone already asked.

                        My question, as someone that very much regrets to have moved from PC to Console is, are there any plans to make the 737 console compatible? I know some other very complex add-ons will be for PC only (I heard one of the reasons is because they rely on executable outside the game to work), but if the DC-6 is being considered to be xbox compatible will the 737 follow a similar path?

                        Sorry for being the stereotypical annoying console player.

                        Hello,
                        Will we have a tablet (in 737) like in the DC-6 which will allow us to do, for example, the maintenance of the device - enter the number of passengers - the weight etc.
                        Some small photos soon ?

                          An EFB is confirmed as seen in the preview pictures released last year. PMDG typically program the pax and fuel weights into the FMC so the EFB will be used for charts etc and the FMC for everything else.

                        I am extremely excited for the release of such an incredible aircraft. I have heard many wonderful things about PMDG's products, and I am excited to make the NG3 my first. I would kill for some new screenshots though. The ones that do exist are beautiful, but they're over a year old. MSFS has matured quite a bit in the graphics department since its release. Either way, I am very excited about the future and look forward to more of PMDG's products making it into MSFS.

                            I'd say pretty sure meant 92% chance. He didn't say they would definitely for sure be able to.

                                9 days to go until the end of the month, do you think think pmdg will make the updates and show offs of the 737, or do you think they just stringing people a long for the ride, i dont think they will make it but do you?

                                  Stringing people along? They'll release when they're ready, as always. Use the time to improve your attitude.

                                  What PMDG crafts is art, not some unfinished product riddled with inaccuracies. You should develop some patience while they're developing their masterpiece. I'd recommend perhaps transferring your impatience to learn a skill, say, coding. Get really good at it, and I mean really good, and start developing some aviation in code. Maybe get good enough to work with PMDG and speed it up. Find a hobby

                                PMDG has been very quiet for the last three weeks. From what I have been told, if PMDG is quiet for a long time, then they are heads down and trucking on something. I see this as a good thing. It means they are hauling ass towards something big. Unfortunately, it's probably going to be a few days more.

                                Honestly, I'm hyping myself up just as I type this, which probably isn't a good thing seeing as nothing about the September previews is guaranteed. I'm just drooling over the existing screenshots to pass the time, and periodically checking the forums to see if any new information has been released.

                                  No ones being taken for a ride they're gonna make a lot of dough out of the 737 so they'll be as eager to release as we all are to have the plane released even if its only vids on YouTube.

                                    I cant fly the simulator yet in vatsim. I am too lazy to learn the buggy 320 for now. I just take off any plane to see and test the scenery in VR and do adjustments and stuff but without a 737 the simulator(hate to call it a game) is not the same. Hopefully, it release soon as it is the plane everyone is waiting for. I am part of a virtual airline and I had to retire temporary because XP11 is not giving me good FPS in VR.

                                      The Aerosoft CRJ is great fun to fly. It's what I've been flying on VATSIM since it was released back in March.

                                          This is the most anticipated addon in the history of any Flightsim , PMDG is going to be drowning in cash when they release their Boeing line ,

                                          IMO people should start tempering their expectations. Look at where the SDK is at right now, MSFS doesn't even support a separate axis for the tiller. We're seeing devs like FBW deciding to run their add-ons entirely outside MSFS. Basically, I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop and PMDG to announce what features we're used to in the NGXu not being available day one when NG3 comes out.

                                            Is there a "rollseyes" emoji available in this forum? And what precisely do you specifically know about the SDK anyway? Which aircraft have you developed for MSFS? I can anticipate your response, and I'm sure you can anticipate mine to yours, so I'll leave it at that.

                                            Not sure why you're rolling your eyes at sensible advice to keep your expectations in check - FS is littered with overly hyped projects, and PMDG isn't immune to falling short sometimes. And no, I'm not a developer, but I can read what developers say about the state of MSFS and what they/PMDG needs to fully model their products, and some areas are looking a little bleak.

                                            Seems like an understatement hahaha
                                            As the first big modern airliner in MSFS the guys at PMDG are going to drown in money if there are no major issues during release.
                                            I wish we get news about it this week, a release date would be awesome, but I don't want to get my hopes up, I can wait.

                                              Is there any update on the (preview) release of the PDMG 737 for MSFS 2020? Was expecting, being late September, to at least have a glimpse of the work in progress. I'm so excited!

                                                  At this point, I'm not expecting the release, but just a screenshot of the 737 on MFS for our delight.
