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.

    PMDG 737 NGXU vs NG3

    What's the difference between the PMDG NGXU and NG3? Is it like the NG3 won't have the varients like the BBJ or the freighter varients? Or is it like the same thing like the NGXU?

    It‘s not released yet so all answers are assumptions but it‘s supposed to only be the platform eventually.

      The NGXu is the P3D version while NG3 is currently the working title for the MSFS version. Fairly sure it'll not be the final productname but we'll see about that when the time has come.

      As for features I'm sure there'll be a difference in what's possible within MSFS and P3D but overall I'd expect them to be about even eventually with maybe a bit more functionallity in the MSFS version than the P3D version.
      Regaridng expansionpacks I don't recall anything being confirmed yet by PMDG however I would expect them to eventually pop up for the MSFS version as well. I wouldn't know why not actually.

        Biggest difference is that the NGXu is a complete and fully functioning add on whereas the NG3 is an unfinished uncertain work in progress much like the sim it’s being developed for. That’s the difference to me. NGXu = fly a great trip today, NG3= some day, maybe.

          Victor, lets see what the NG3 can't do first before making it sound like the NGXu is going to be far superior as nobody knows yet

        As far as I have been hearing, the NG3 is not that far behind the NGXu, they just need Asobo to implement and allow some features to get weather and terrain radar warning as well as the TCAS system. Robert has said there are a couple things missing but most of the other items are there as you would expect like the NGXu.

          The NG3 is the 4th version of the PMDG 737 series...thanks DDowns ... anyways everyone will love it or should. Pmdg are always worth the price and there isn't much they could put into the NG3 other than a couple of sounds like the PACKS high pitched ramp level noise when turned on and the APU alarm (ramp side), etc. What would be cool to be add on is specific bin weights. I'll have to dig through my employee website to find them. But the bins are separated now. So FWD has 3 bins and the aft also 3 Bins. There's a lot more but especially for the max when every bag is mostly loaded in the aft. The W&B really is specific on loading. Heck before the airline im with currently, They used to tell us how.many bags to put into each bin (abc,def). So if you ask my its a simple and possible.equation for the devs to put into the aircraft. Ops And ramp are a big deal with the aircraft. It only helps the fuel efficiently and airline, and pilots, even if they don't notice it.

            NGXu is available for P3D and NG3 is still in work for msfs.

              Hold on, do you mean bins in terms of overhead (pax) bins oder the cargo hold? (Probably different terms by different airlines... as happens so often)

              My airline btw loads everything in the forward hold as long as it's within W/B limits and there's enough space. Makes the airplane more stable to fly (even though it uses a bit more fuel).
              And of course the most important: Saves us the rear loaders 🤣

                Okay so what do you guys think about the pricing? Will it cost around 60 dollars because I am yet to finish my school and that price will be more comfortable for me 😅

                  They haven't mentioned anything about pricing, but seeing as the NGXu was already $99, I would be very surprised if it was less than that.

                    Pricing is a taboo topic of discussion on the forums, but RSR has said people will be surprised at how much the pricing has dropped compared to P3D

                      Sounds like you dont haul 220+ bags and 4k lbs frieght 🤣🤣.. you know we are a different animal here.. i acryally prefer working only at one end of the aircraft just because of the simplicity of it. However ny ramp days are numbered to 6 left. Up to operations I go!

                        The ramp rat has been promoted! Congrats (maybe?)

                        If you are talking about the pricing being a non subject then other topics have been locked because of it, the reduction of pricing was mentioned on the radio show he did
