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.

    Msfs live q&a

    I'm sorry, did my eyes just witness Mr. Randazzo flash a 757 to the camera as an "ongoing project"?

    I almost fainted.

    Please let this be true.

    Alan Dominguez

    Mr. Randazzo we saw that 757. You finally making our dreams come true with a 757? Cause that or a 767 in msfs would have us fans going nuts.

      It's been known for a while that there was a "secret" product in the making... some assumed it was a 787 based on a couple of screenshots, but that was never confirmed.

      If it is indeed that, then, as of May, Robert himself said it would be released for P3D first:

      Interesting times ahead.

        They were in one of the announcement threads this year, or maybe even 2020. BBJ preview if memory serves. There were some (static) 787s in the background as part of the scenery which some people took as a sign. That's all.

      What a tease

        Well I see Asobo has reached the last people on earth. Great presentation Rob. I can't wait to fly the 737 in MSFS.

          He keeps teasing like that, he'll have whole bunch of people picketing on his driveway holding "Take my money" signs. That makes me think Xmas stocking for 738.

          That would be amazing. Been waiting forever for someone to finally do the 75. First airplane I ever tore down was an ex United bird. Shame the pandemic brought around the retirement of a lot of them.

            Just found the Q&A, my dad flew the 757 so if it is coming I really can't wait

              Yeah I was sad when American retired their entire fleet of 757's and 767's. Gotta fly on United's or Deltas soon before they're gone.

                I don't really know the 757, what are the cool things about it, system wise?

                  Nice mix of EFIS & traditional steam gauges. Has something for everyone. Also… It is overpowered. The 757 is a rocket ship.

                Thanks for the info

                  I was hoping for a 727, but the 757 will surely be a day one buy for me. Such exciting times ahead for both the world of MSFS 2020 and PMDG.

                    I to had to do a double take. What fun times we are in!

                      Great to see Robert in den Dev Q & A, I enjoyed that a lot.

                      I know a number of people that fly on Xbox, they will be delighted to hear the DC-6 will come to their Marketplace.
                      Some people have generalisationsabout Xbox Gamers but really mostthe MSFS folks on Xbox I know are FS oldschoolers that somehow stopped after some years of FSX and just don't have a Gaming PC anymore.
                      Xbox is just a convenient device to have, as it also plays BluRays and what not.

                      You'll sell a ton of DC-6 to Xbox Pilots.

                        Let me put it this way. The 757 is the airliner that, among all the airline companies that operated it, wished they still had it. It does thing no other airliner can. Short fields, high/hot fields etc with a nice payload. It approaches at speeds that can cause a double take for it's size.
