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.

    I hope we get an update on the Universal Flight tablet tomorrow

    It’s been an exciting week for simming with SU10 releasing and updates to the Fenix a320.

    As someone who’s been awaiting pmdg’s efb, I’m really hoping we get a preview or an updated roadmap or something.

          Yep, my sarcasm is only limited to the subject matter given me. For example, the post you mentioned. Not one word of even a "promise" of a preview. RR said, "I think we will begin showing you our universal flight tablet about mid-september-ish". Not the use of the phrase "I think..." and the "-ish". How would you feel if someone borrowed 100 dollars from you and said, "I think I will repay you about mid-next week-ish". Do you take that as a PROMISE to repay next Wednesday?

          You FYI offered zero information.

          Crabby that is my fault, I was not thinking well of that time when I was typing out my sentence. They did not "promise" but meant to say they are looking at a possible mid-September where they would show it off. I corrected my post now.

        I'm looking at the post right now, I wouldn't exactly say they promised mid-September as much as I would say they were hoping to do it by then. The operative word in his post was "I think".

          Yeah, that was my fault, I did not really put though into it when I typed it out, I fixed it up to better align to what he said

        Didn't RSR also say multiple times we'd have a 757 "next week" last time he was on SkyBlueRadio? I bet it comes with a tablet...

          I am super excited for this update. 3rd party tools are not so precise for takeoff performance and what not. I know the waiting will pay off, PMDG never disappoints lads!

          Just hold your horses!

              I’m thankful to have an ancient copy of TOPCAT but that only does the basic -700/-800 models. The tablet will be awesome 😎

                Look into virtualperformancetool.com. It is darn good.

              True, topcat is spot on with the 738 though. D-TO and N1 are exact, V speeds may vary 1 or 2 +-. Hope the performance calculator of the new efb will be a little more robust.
