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.

    [24AUG22] PMDG 737 for Microsoft Flight Simulator Product Line - Micro Update for 737-600 & 737-700 operators


    We have made available new updates for the PMDG 737-600 for MSFS and the PMDG 737-700 for MSFS. These updates are available to you via the PMDG Operations Center.

    To update your PMDG 737, simply run the Operations Center, then click AIRCRAFT AND LIVERIES, then PRODUCT UPDATES. On this page will be displayed a list of the PMDG products that you have installed. (If you see nothing but a "CHECK NOW" button, click that button!)

    Once the update has propagated to your part of the globe (propagation might take a bit, as it works it's way through the cloud system) you will see the update show available on the associated 737 product. Click the update button and off you go!

    There are a number of changes in this build, and a mostly complete change list is included below.

    This marks the sixth update cycle for the 737 series since it was launched back in May. This continual rate of update and improvement shows our team's commitment to ensuring that all MSFS users wind up with a truly fantastic simulation experience, whether you are primarily interested in visual exploration, or you are looking for a really in-depth simulation that allows you to experience the complexity of operating a modern airliner properly.

    We have plenty more coming for you- so keep checking back here, or watch the Operations Center for further updates!

    Thanks for your support, as always- and happy flying!

                    Yet another brilliant update from team PMDG - Thanks as always. It has to be said that I was also hoping for the potential release of something else . Let's hope the weekend brings even more joy.

                          So I've enabled window shades on the -600 and -700 liveries that I spawned into after the updates. Where's the clickspot for the shade you can move along the track from side to side? The pullout-clipped shades on the side windows work great but I can't find that other clickspot.

                          Patience my Padawan. It will be released when it's ready.

                          And the fact that a "Placeholder" has been created in the Store is an indication that release may be right around the corner.

                            Why does PMDG feel the need to tease when its the most hyped variant of the 737.

                              Because they can. It’s a harmless tease (737-800) and the two previous planes (600/700) got generous and rich updates. No tease there.

                                    Calm down. It's most likely coming out sometime today.

                                      Everyone has to wait till RSR & everyone else at pmdg has enough bottles of champagne chilled for their celebration at a job well done, boy, do they deserve that celebration 🍾 👏 👍

                                        Smart move - get the 736, 737 updated and done before the grand launch of the one we've been waiting for... otherwise it would have been a pretty massive freaking update in one shot! Thank you PMDG!

                                          Between us psychopaths😂, to say. Keep it up. Great job and update.

                                            Thanks, Mariusz! - RSR

                                          The window shades are unclickable for me. I loaded the BDSF and the shades weren't added within the options menu but still were showing, enabling them doesn't fix the issue. Any ideas?

                                            The shades work.

                                            Always follow this procedure after every update. Quoted from the Introduction Manual pg 0.00.36

                                            First Time Load After Install May Have Unexpected Problems:
                                            We recommend that you end the flight and close MSFS after having loaded the airplane for the first time after you’ve installed it.
                                            Restart MSFS and load the aircraft a second and subsequent time to ensure that all parts and pieces of the code are working as expected. Common problems that may occur on the initial load include sound stutters and missing annunciations, amongst others.

                                            Ah yes I remember reading that now, I had totally forotten about that method. Thanks for reminding me.

                                            I think that one was edited out. I didn't see it when I looked through the change log this afternoon at lunch. Nice one, though!

                                          I just bought it but i don't have a link to download it?
