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.

    [10AUG22] Happy Birthday to Us!


    This week marks 25 years that PMDG has been part of the Flight Simulation Community. From a very inauspicious beginning offering our "747-400 PS1 Users Guide" that was first released in late 1997, to minor air file modifications for Microsoft Flight Simulator '98, to a product line of our own software spanning more than 60 products across ten different simulation platforms and nine operating systems.

    Not a bad run for tiny little entrant into a marketplace that has been in a constant state of flux for nearly that entire period of our existence.

    As a team, we have been reflecting on just how much life and simming has changed in the past twenty five years, and while there have been years that have been better than others, all of us at PMDG feel that the simming hobby and community has never been as vibrant and energetic as it is today.

    It is hard to express how grateful we are for the support that continues to be shown to us every day by all of you who purchase and fly our products, offer feedback and constructive criticism, laughs and friendship along the way. Not only could we not do this without your support, it would be significantly less fun were it not for your role in the PMDG community. We have gotten to know many of you through your participation here in the PMDG forum, and we look forward to many more years of fun and laughs.

    Thank you for being here- and for supporting us all of these years.

    To celebrate, we have just launched our "sort-of-annual" birthday sale offering 25% off your order at The sale runs through the end of the day, 14AUG22 and includes *almost* all PMDG products. (The brand new 737-600 is excluded, but all other products are included.)

    Don't forget: Back in 2019, when we launched the PMDG 737NGXu, we gave nearly 9,000 of you a $99.99 credit to your account just for having purchased the PMDG 737NGXu. This represents neraly a $1M reinvestment back into the simming community- and when combined with the 25% birthday celebration, you can stretch that credit even further- so don't wait!

    We aren't simply sitting here eating cake- we are hard at work on the 737-800 and will have more information for you on the planned release schedule in the very near future!

    Thank you again for all that you have done to support us all of these years. We quite literally wouldn't do this without you.

                                    An extra treat would be releasing the paintkit for the 737-600 😀


                                      Happy bday … unfortunately the B737-800 will come after the discount period 🤷🥳

                                        Wouldn't make a difference - the 600 is excluded, so the -800 would defiantly be

                                      A truly remarkable run so far. Your products have pushed this hobby to greater level of detail and realism, and for that we are grateful. Looking forward to the next 25 years! Happy birthday!

                                        It's been an amazing ride so far. You've helped to advance flight simulation to levels we might never have expected, setting a standard that has driven competitors to do better too. Thank you.

                                                        I feel honored to participate for more than 10 years in the PMDG family since FSX, although only last year I started to actively attend this forum, some criticisms were made at times not understood by the members of this select group, but none of this erases my love that I have it for Boeing and mainly for the best add-on of all time. Long live all PMDG employees, collaborators and friends. Congratulations and we will always be together.
