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 737NGXu Update for Prepar3D:
      For our Prepar3D users, we are evaluating an update for your 737NGXu install that will add the new Lateral Flight Path as well as a range of other code-side updates to the PMDG 737NGXu for Prepar3D that have derived from our MSFS efforts. This update will be limited to code changes, so it will update the core behaviors of the airplane, but not graphic/model/texture changes are planned at this time."

        Nice! I was really looking forward to flying this one on stream, will do so tomorrow, I really miss seing the old Air Europa 737-600 flying around LEMD

        I was honestly surprised when I read the price ! I think it is an excellent choice and will help those wondering if they should get into serious simming to talk themselves into it, at this price point this hobbie is more accessible than it has ever been.

          So I'm going to assume this *won't* extend to QOTS II or the 777X?

            hoping to get some more 777 news later, i'm happy we finally got some lnav vnav updates on the -700 and some other improvements.
            hopefully wx radar will follow soon.

              Curerntly no. The LNAV currently is fixed for the 737 family, when we do the rest is MSFS they will be evaluated for P3D.

                        Thank you PMDG! I just got the 600. Can't wait to fly the SAS tomorrow. I remember flying on the 600 between Gothenburg and Stockholm so many times as a teen. It was either that or the MD80. I always preferred the 600. We used to call it "grisen" in Swedish which translates to "the pig". This is obviously because of how short and stubby it looked.

                            Absolutely a brilliant move with the price, you're going to sell 30x as many as you otherwise would have. Even at the lower price, it'll show more of an ROI.

                              Kevin- We actually don't concern ourselves with unit sales. If I wanted to put an unlimited number into use, it would be sold for $0.01. Personally I'd rather sell a single unit for $100,000,000. Much easier to support a single user. :-) - RSR

                              Its a bit hard getting into Lukla in the 700, maybe the 600 will be better suited.

                              Congratulations on another great release, she looks beautiful sitting on the apron at Dreamland, er...Groom Lake, err...that airport with the non existent terminal!.

                              On another note, is anyone else having an issue getting the latest navigraph AIRAC cycle loaded into the FMC? I have it loaded into the 700 but the 600 initial page is showing an out of date cycle 04-22. I have tried removing and re-installing the navdata on the 'PMDG 737' tab in the navigraph navdata centre after the 600 install but the current AIRAC fails to show and the FMC gives an out of date warning.

                                Pete- The navigraph tool likely is updating your 700, but it doesn't know the 600 exists. You will have to copy the navdata over manually until they have a chance to get their tool caught up with the new release. (This headache courtesy of some platform design decisions that cause a ton of headaches for develoeprs... sorry.... ) - RSR

                                  Wow! This price point is amazing. Thanks for Robert and the pmdg team for making this move. This will make things so much eaiser for me to convince my friends to try out airliner in msfs, at 35 bucks, I don't think there is a reason to say no to a study level aircraft from pmdg no less. I wasn't going to consider 600 since i got the 700 and wating for 800 but this is a no-brainer for me now.

                                      Thanks for the hard work and making the -700 available on the marketplace soon... I have been waiting patiently for this, and hope the -600 will follow shortly (and the -800), I am really looking forward to it.

                                        Thank you RSR & PMDG Team for all your hard work and dedication! The -600 is a cool little rocket, and the price ($4.99, remainder of coupon from the -700) is well worth it and impossible to resist 😉 Looking forward to getting the EFB in your planes, and the -800 when it's released! (The -900 too 😁)

                                              I think I need to say sorry to PMDG for my previous remarks. I never thought that the study level product of a jet plane could be sold at such a cheap price. This is a beautiful turnaround.

                                              Not sure if it's my rig but had some problems for the first time with having to search around various knobs and switches for click spots.

                                                Alejandro- I dedicated about 1/5th of the anchor post in this thread to the parking brake. Run up there and take a read. :-) - RSR

                                              Please read the first post. Robert wrote exactly what you need to do to have the parking brake operational.

                                              I was very sure about myself that the 600 would be the only variant which I was not going to buy.
                                              Then I tried to find out which liveries would be included - couldn't find it, but decided that this is not important anyhow
                                              Then I saw it was released, and saw the price.
                                              I didn't need a beer like some other people here. Black coffee did the job, 1,5 cups to decide, and it as bought after finishing the second cup.
                                              Will I fly it a lot? Maybe not, but as you've seen I'm not good in predicting my future.
                                              Good developers deserve our support, so I will not regret it anyhow. And I know which liveries are included now!

                                              Cheers,

                                                Plus 1 on your comment I feel the same way, going over to the shop and put the 600
                                                in the Hanger. :-)

                                                Can you tell those with a beer/coffee what liveries are included?
