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.

    According the comments. It's around a month between a photo change & a release. Looks like it's close going by their methods

      Perhaps a wonderful way to end 2021? 😎

        About a month from now, eh? Making it a Christmas gift to all their loyal customers, perhaps?

          Nice shot. I only have a couple of hours in MSFS. The NG3 will probably change that.
          Best regards,

              I've mainly been non-serious flying in MSFS because of the lack of aircraft like PMDG, but man, it sure is a much prettier sim and realistic rendition of the world.
              Every time I fly P3D (which is rare now), I hate how it looks.

              Once PMDG 737 comes out for MSFS, I doubt I'll ever fly P3D again.

                        Can't wait to fly this beauty in MSFS. Thank you PMDG :-)

                        There's just one thing I'd like to ask : on the screenshots shared, I noticed the very high reflections on some part of the aircraft similar to the rather unrealistic look we have on default MSFS aircrafts. For example, wing textures or even flaps have a rather Matt finish in real life with almost no reflections. On the below picture, we can see some shiny high reflections on the flaps. Is this something that can be fixed through third party liveries or is this part of the model ? (I am asking the question as others devs (e.g FBW A32x) mentioned they were getting ridding of this making their own brand new model...).

                        Thanks !

                          That’s simply not true. There are plenty of aircraft out there free of skydrol, brake dust, dirt and lube plastered all over the exterior which still allows the gloss finish to show.

                          While the default aircraft do have some rather featureless looking fuselage and wing texturing, they of course can be clean and still have a glossy shine - there’s no such thing as a matte paint job either that I’ve ever seen as well working out in the hangar. Everything gets painted and then just about everything gets covered with some form of corrosion inhibitor leaving it with a glossy, polyurethane type finishe.

                          Dear PMDG, are you able to give us this screenshot in good quality (FHD/QHD/UHD)? Facebook compressed it a lot as usual, and I would like it as a wallpaper

                              Ok I have my "Take my money sign" ready. I'm going on a road trip to RSRs house. He can either shoot me or take my money or shoot me and take my money or take my money and gimme a plane but that teasing needs to stop.

                                I'm going to really enjoy my first walk around with this plane. For exterior camera work an X-Box controller makes a nice slow walk around really easy in MSFS. I don't use it for anything else though.

                                  I think RSR hinted awhile back. Flightdeck2sim covered 738 inside and out over the years so shouldn't be a big issue for newbies and less work for PMDG. Unless of course they want to showcase the bird the way they want to.

                                    Is 737 still scheduled to release this year? Because I have read on PMDG discord that is planned to release next year probably in Feb. Hope it's still this year.

                                      Jan - Robert has posted an interview he's done, to summarise, release looks likely to be January, maybe a bit later, as you never know with software

                                      PMDG is not on discord, anything on discord related to PMDG is by others and not by PMDG.

                                      I was ecstatic to learn that the 737 is going to be avialable on Xbox too! Do you have a rough idea about how long it will take after the official release on PC before it is released in the Marketplace for Xbox? Hopefully not 5 months like for the DC-6. Thank you in advance.
