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.

          As he announces they have 14 products in line, in my opinion we know what all 13 of them are but there is one that hasn't been hinted at yet - maybe a DC3?

            Which ones? 737,747,777 DC6 and now 757 What's the other 8? Or are we counting variants too as separate products?

              The 757 and 767 actually aren't very similar at all. The cockpits are similar so they have a common type rating and we operate them similarly, but the systems are completely different. To the level that PMDG develops products, it wouldn't save them much because they really and truly are two completely different airplanes. That being said, I really, really hope they develop both. The 767 (so far) is hands down my favorite plane I've flown.

              How the 767 and 757 are built is similar. Structurally I'm not sure if they are but none of that matters for us in the sim.

              It's not the structure, it's the systems. The flightdeck is nearly identical but the systems are quite different.

            I've been waiting for a 757 and/or 767 for so long, so I really hope this is true. I fly the 756 for a large US airline and the current sim offerings are....lacking. I will be one happy camper if/when this comes to fruition.

                shamrock, I do hope you're wrong (in a nice way) because for the 737 you'll be missing the -900 (which arguably is more needed than the -600), BBJs, and BCF/BDSF, I'll have a guess at the 14 being product packs, i.e more than 1 variant in a pack. As I have a feeling the JS41 is one too

                  JS41 definitely won't be one of the aircraft in the pipeline. They've already said they've decided on what is in the pipeline and hinted at a 757. They've got this, plus the 747, 777, and the 737 to work with + updates to DC-6 and the other products being pushed into MSFS.

                  I would say that saying "definitely" seems inccorrect (unless you work for PMDG and know other things), I mention the JS41 because somewhere in the operations centre, it mentions the JS41 for MSFS, therefore I thinks a fair assumption we could see it in MSFS - unless this was a previous thought, although RSR did say the new aircraft has been know for a couple years at least

                  Also, they mention 14 products for MSFS, even with the current 3 boeings, the hinted 757 and DC6, I fail to see how that makes 14?

                  EDIT : RSR in the interview pinned has said the 41 is likely to come to MSFS at some point

                  Would have liked the 767 more,but i'll take it .I just hope the F will be included.

                  It makes the wait for the Level-D 757 finally over .

                      I don't know about you guys....but I KNOW there is also going to be a 767 and 727 released, as I broke into rsrandazzo 's office last night and placed a model of each on his desk.
                      I'd love to be a fly on the wall in the next team meeting when he asks about the progress on those aircraft. 🤣

                      PS: Guys....don't break the door jamb to get in...the code is 8675309. 😁

                        the door code can very well be 8675 or 309

                        @RSR: While that is a good place to store your door codes....you just have to sing that number and its origin will be obvious.

                        @Swaluver88: if you listen closely...its actually 8675 -309....e-9 LOL. And...I got the number on the wall.

                        Do you see how easy it is to get us talking and stop complaining that "...there hasn't been an update for xxx days!..."

                        When this excitement ebbs, just lift ... I don't know .... a cup of coffee? .....

                        And new speculation and comments will abound!

                        As long as something is being developed at PMDG, we know it'll be good!

                            I welcome the 757-200, think the market need a 757/767!

                          After carefully adjusting contrast, lighting and the newest form of image sharpening, from the looks of it, a 707 is in the works as well.

                            A PMDG 757 and a 767 will be a most welcome addition to the FS world. I'm also hoping that the cockpit display upgrades will also be included!

                            If I'm also seeing a 787 and a 707 model, I think we are in for a treat. As others have suggested, I hope there is a 727 model on that desk!

                                As an aside, I do love the model Robert chose. The Saul Bass livery is still one of the most beautiful, in my opinion. Though I will say, the trip I'm currently flying has had a number of aircraft in our new paint job and it's actually pretty striking up close. Battleship Gray is way up there too.

                                  These teasings have no sense without confirmation. As for me I like facts. When PMDG is ready to announce the plane in development we will know about it. Anyway I am waiting for 737MAX, because 757 or 767 or 787 or etc very long away from release and MAX is just near here but the same time far away.

                                    What would be the point in the MAX when they're working on the 737NG3? Its just another 737, now undoubted in the future they'll probably be one, but what the market need is a 757/767 IMO.

                                    There's already a MAX in the works. I believe it is an expansion to the ngxu. They just couldn't release it due to what happened irl

                                    What's the issue with releasing the MAX due to what happened irl? I'm not sure I understand. I'd love for someone to explain =)

                                  That was a great presentation RSR did on the stream, I really enjoyed it.

                                  I sincerely hope he fired the sound engineer though, having that failure when he did. If it weren't for that we would all know the release date for the 737 now!.

                                    Adding my enthusiasm for a 767 to the list... I'm ALMOST as excited about the 757 tease as I would be for a 767, especially with a cargo variant...

                                      You mean one of these, right? It sits right behind me. This one came from the Museum of Flight and flew on the last flight of N7001U. I cleaned the lavatories on this airplane at the beginning of my airline career. Humble beginnings, but still more fun than a real job. :-)

                                        Robert, if you don’t have it already, I highly recommend this book on the restoration of this aircraft. The details are fantastic in it.

                                        Hold on now guys. Rob said the 727 sits behind him… Unless he has a wrap around desk, that 727 isn’t on his desk. The picture where he holds the 757 shows a bookshelf with quite a few planes on top. The 727 probably sits on a shelf.

                                      I think I heard Rob say PMDG will be 21 or 25 years old next year, wow how fast does time go, wasn't the 757 their first product so how fitting would it be to get a brand new 757 from them on the anniversary next year

                                        I personally love all the variants of the B767. If someday PMDG comes to give life to the B767 for P3D / MSFS they will have a lot of fun since the B767 has many things like the B727 and this work can only be done by PMDG and rsrandazzo
