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.

    DO NOT USE PAUSE AT TOD!!!!

    Pause at TOD uses active pause, but if you turn off active pause, the plane is still paused in the air. I just wasted an entire flight. I'm stuck in the air right now mashing buttons. Maybe I'm dumb, but it's definitely broken.

    Edit: The fix to this is to save your flight in MSFS and save the panel state in PMDG, then quit the flight and reload your saved flight. Worked for me.

    I've had that happen in other planes using active pause, might be an Asobo problem.

      I have right shift P mapped to a command that will properly unpause the aircraft...I just shut down the sim for the night so can't check what command but it was one of the default pause toggle or pause off commands in MSFS. Worked like a charm on my flight tonight.

        Maybe I am just stupid? LOL I tried everything and that was my only fix.

          Active pause is by far the worst thing in the sim...just dont do it.
          Also...another Asobo gotcha....when you set pause at TOD, it works as advertised, but Asobo's "pause" still leaves the engines burning fuel.
          So if you come back late to a pause at TOD, you may find yourself out of fuel.
          THIS IS NOT a PMDG issue...this is an Asobo issue! They know about it and don't seem to think its important that when you pause the sim...everything stops, expect the fuel consumption....how stupid is that?

          Best thing to do....if you must be away and know you'll hit that TOD and its paused...set a timer on your phone to alert you that in about an hour or so (based on your FOB of course), your tanks will be empty....so head back to the sim and land her!

            A random question: why did they design the active pause at the first place? I can only remember them advertising it but can’t really recall why they thought it would be useful.

              Asobo and their infinite wisdom. No one can come up with plausible explanation for that fiasco

            If you want real pause, activate developer mode and use the pause from the options menu. I was sort of hoping that the 737 would somehow utilize that for the pause at TOD, but alas.

              I thought the keybound pause from the manual is real pause, not active like hitting ESC? They don’t use real pause for pause at TOD? If so hopefully that changes.

              Weren't there rumors and speculations that this bird doesn't like developer mode?
