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.

    Looking great. Would have bought it if there was a bundle.

    Yes, and no. You are correct, but seem surprised like you've only just discovered this? This has been talked about at the forum for months. Yes, each variant (with BBJ and freighter version included) is a standalone model. The base pack business model is abandoned.

  • justinbrett
    replied
    Oh so each model is going to be sold independently - not the previous way with the base package (-700) and then add ons?

    That's a bit disappointing, it discourages people from buying them all.

    If you already own the -700 and have no specific interest in that variant, it’s probably not for you. If you don’t, it’s a good entry-point into the PMDG world for new customers.

    P.S. Emi's -600 preview video today said $49.95 I think, though that is still subject to whatever actually appears on the Store when it goes on sale.

    rsrandazzo Hi Robert, Feel super late to the party here but just wanted to enquire about content creators and the MSFS 737 - I sent you a private message a few weeks ago with some info and request. Sorry if this isn't the place, I can't find a better topic to post to. Hope that is okay.
    All the best

    With the latest 737-700 update, when I hold down the SHIFT key to accelerate the turn speed of knobs, e.g. SHIFT + Mouse Wheel Up/Down, I no longer get the knob clicking/turning sounds. Has anyone reported this and will it get fixed in the next release? Let me know if I should file a ticket with support please.

    “What I would love to see is repaints representing airlines that flew the -100s and -200s.”
    Yes, that would be great.


    I wish for a PMDG-737-200 someday.

    I currently fly the FlyJsim 737-200 TwinJet Pro in Xplane v11.5.

    The 732 is a really nice ride.

What I would love to see is repaints representing airlines that flew the -100s and -200s. There are so many of them and were flown on so many routes around the world that it would provide us so many options. There was a painter back in the NGX days, Steve Stubbs, that did many repaints of the -600, most fictional, some actual. I would love to see some of those back in my modern hanger.
    Yeah that would be cool.....personally, one of my favorite painters did this one for the -700....hope he brings it to the -600, one of my favorite paints of all time.

    Hi, mister Randazzo!

    If I'm not wrong you said that in the future a high resolution passenger cabin is to be expected. Will this solve the fact that the passenger cabin is now lit even when the aircraft is cold & dark? It is strange to see the open hatch brightly lit in the middle of the night.
    One last thing. Would it be possible to make passenger boarding independent from the arrival of the bus or SUVs? Many little airports have the gates so close to the parked aircraft that passengers are made to walk for a few meters. Consequently the PMDG bus/SUV often penetrate the buildings around.

    Thank you so much for the masterpiece you are giving us.

    Funny you should mention that.... rsrandazzo just gave us clearance for still shots....here are 2 paints I'll be releasing on the -600 (both fictional but painted by request from some team members)

    Here is one of the many included in the -600 package (I think the PMDG painters may have painted ALL the airlines that flew her!

    The previous P-8 was indeed a visual-only model. All of the systems and the flight model were the base 737.

    Spot on Rolando, flying at night with the chrono and collins MCP so bright is painful, this has to be addressed PMDG, c'mon, please, even in p3d we had dimming MCP numbers.

    They have made a P-8 in the past with the NGX package. However, I don't know if it was a visual only model or not.

    Definitely required a double take didn't it! 🤣 At first glance I thought it was the -900ER until I re-read and looked again!
