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.

        One of the reasons I won’t touch it for serious flights. Live in the U.K. and fly out of LAX at 11:00 local you’re seeing LIVE weather which means 02:00Z weather for a daytime departure. Nighttime weather in daytime! Yep, totally realistic.

          True, many things are still heavily WIP and the weather and WX API is certainly one of them. Asobo listen to us however and they have promised and already done a lot of the conmunity‘s requests. If historical weather will come is unknown but the request is large. It wouldn‘t be a real problem for the system on Asobo‘s side I suppose since all they do is interpret Meteoblue‘s data. But the key will be to get realtime access to a database of historical weather data and stream it to anyone who asks for it. The focus for now is certainly the „live“ experience though and I expect them to finetune that first. But there is a lot of time to fill.

            RayP You don't have to defend yourself like others shouldn't judge which sim to use. But even in P3D forums there is the discussion over 4.5 or 5.3 A bit of a Boeing/Airbus thing.
            For each sim there are pro's and cons. It took me 2 years to swallow the bullet to change and buying a new gpu and sceneries all over again... and I never regretted it for a second. The immersion of flying is so much better which was for me the most important thing. But I don't use the Concorde but the slomo A320 and 737, otherwise I would have stayed with P3D too.

              Wingview, appreciate your comments. I was happy with v4 but after so many reported significant improvements in v5 I was convinced it was a good move. I didn’t realise it at the time because LM don’t blow their own trumpet but the big improvement to the whole world scenery was very welcome.

              The aircraft I fly in P3D aren’t available in MSFS and won’t be for a long time. I’ve never taken to Airbus feeling it’s more like a flying computer and could never get used to using a side-stick. My Fulcrum yoke is superb for Boeing and Concorde.

              I’m also unusual in that I’m happy to fly into / out of default airports. That opens up the world far more than just using 3rd party airports. I have plenty of course but never enough. Each to their own and I will never question those who prefer MSFS over other sims.
              Cheers,

                I assume you are a real world pilot if you can make a statement about flight dynamics.. It is funny there are many realworld pilots that disagree and tell it is close to real. (talking about PMDG and Fenix) So even for real pilots it is not always clear what feels real or not .
