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.

    I'm about to move my annual leave forward so that I can spend the next few weeks day and night with the new plane....
    Jokes aside, the anticipation is huge, of course thanks to the whole PMDG team 👏🏻🍀

    Greetings from Germany

      This plane is going to bring me out of retirement, can't wait to get my hands (and virtual paint brush) on her!

          Thank You Robert .... I have been waiting for so long for this release. I wasn't sure if I would live long enough to enjoy it. Now the excitement might kill me.

            Yeaaaah!!! Thank you PMDG Team


              I'm a lurker. . .because I haven't kept current with forums over the decades, but I have fond memories of all the amazing companies that have brought some great products to the many versions of flight simulator over the years. Heck, I remember getting my first addon "VIP" panel from Ken Kerr (a 757) that I downloaded off of compuserve! with dial up. 😅 And then PSS made some great buses, and a 777, a 747, a Dash8. And DF2000 with a 737-300, and LevelD's 767s, Leonardo's MadDogs. . .and of course there was PMDG. There was always a high bar to outdo the last amazing product from any of those "other" companies. PMDG has always been the standard to beat. Heck even the light planes like the Jetstream were great products! Incredibly, not many of those companies are around, for one reason or another. (MS's massive hiatus didn't help anything.) But, here we are. With a new bar being set. I've been dreaming for the day of VR simming with a full photo realistic world, full of clouds, traffic, and ATC chatter. Like RSR, there are always flaws to find, even for the user, but. . .this is getting so incredibly close to reality! PMDG, I expect nothing but the best from you. Even if there is a pixel that is slightly discolored. And to that end, I say. . .

                      Great news that a release date is finalized now! I'm assuming that the experience gained with the 737 release should help make the subsequent 777 and 747 developments less difficult? Perhaps hope of a quicker release of the 777.

                              Dear PMDG team, thanks for the update and congratulations with the work you all acomplished.
                              The trimwheelsound sounds great!
                              if iam not misstaken, I hear also some cabin announcements in the back... is that standard on the 737 or a 3rd party tool? If its standard, does that mean there are other announcements included as well?


                              You set the bar high, and altough you cant "enjoy" your work of art, and cant help to keep seeing flaws, please maintain this level of perfectionism because that will bring progress in this world and joy to all the great folks here that will enjoy this masterpiece!

                              Thanks again, keep up the great work and Iam looking forward to monday!

                                    I have no doubt PMDG's 737 will set a new intellectual paradigm for plane development in MSFS. This will be an incredible moment and all thanks to the team at PMDG, thank you all so much.

                                        OK, thank you for the announcement.

                                        I've started furloughing the existing fleet at KVCV. First delivery is difficult... my trusty CJ-4. She taught me how to fly a jet in this beautiful simulator. She, especially, carried me through the dark days of a pandemic.

                                        CJ-4 parked

                                        If my signature isn't here, I really tried to set that up and I will fix ASAP.

                                          Good news for the people that buy the -700 ( i need to wait 3 more months )

                                          wil pricing be released Sunday or did i miss something?

                                          Will the MAX come 6 weeks after the -900 or after the 747 ?

                                            They didn't mentioned regarding the pricing in this post but they once mentioned they would announce the pricing in parallel with the announcement of the release. As they didn't, I would guess today or tomorrow. But maybe they also made the decision now last minute to keep it a surprise until the plane has been released. So let's see. In any case, I can live with it to wait until Monday to know for sure.

                                            The MAX will be released "somewhere in the future". It won't come 6 weeks after the -600 as it needs way more developing time. I would guess that they didn't announced any specifics on the release of the MAX as they really need to gather a lot of data first to make sure the plane is as close in the simulator as it is in real life. And due to the "issues" at Boeing with the MAX, the MAX is just simply not flying long enough to gather enough data.
                                            So, I would guess they will probably hold it until after the 747, but they want to be flexible enough to change those plans. So they will probably release it when they have to the time and confidence to make it right

                                            I imagine pricing will be given at the time you are given the opportunity to add the product to your shopping cart. Hope this helps.

                                          Looks like they made the wiper proportionally the correct size now. Looks good ! Was hoping for a weekend release, but I guess Monday is not the end of the world.

                                            Dear Robert,


                                            But when? When on Monday? At what time? Which part of the day? In which timezone?

                                            Plans need to be made, and we’re all on a need-to-know basis… and we need to know! 🤪

                                            P.S. Good luck server admins! We apologize in advance.

                                                  I suspect when you click "Buy" on Monday you'll be given the price...

                                                Well this is exciting. Another release day purchase for me but it will have to go under ground checks in the hanger until after my uni exams for this year lol. once they are over, it will be non stop flying this beauty until the next release :P This is going to be wild.... Gotta get them all and the same goes for each release of the 737, then the 777 etc etc.

                                                Just wondering if you will ever consider doing a 757 at some point in time.

                                                Anyways thankyou for the update and congrats to the team in advance of release.

                                                This is going to be big....Never in all my years simming have I ever been hyped for a release as I am for this.

                                                May the final stretch go smoothly for the team

                                                    Congratulations Robert & all the team. The Monday release will be a massive weight off of your shoulders I think the whole community would agree that two weeks somewhere sunny with a few jars is more than warranted. Given the popularity of many streamers and how far the information about this aircraft has gone, I think you are facing your most profitable project yet. Well and truly deserved It will be a pleasure to undertake my delivery flights.
