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.

    Will the PMDG Boeing 737 Max Expansion also come for P3D V4/V5?

    Dear Community,
    I'm a big fan of the Boeing 737 Max, and wanted to ask, if there are also plans to release it for P3D as well?

    Regards,
    Kevin Neumann

    It's hard to say what are the plans, but I don't remember they even announced it for MSFS, it was teased for P3D when they were working on the NGXu and then I believe there were the two crashes and all that happened around the max which made it impossible to actually make it (since there was going to be changes, and probably to avoid the slew of people that would try to replicate the crashes).
    It'll probably come at some point.

      RSR refers to this in his latest interview on Blue Sky Radio. You can listen to the podcast online. It seems that until they get the means to debug C++ code in MSFS the code is run in P3D for testing. That means a P3D version of the MAX could be launched. Not will be launched, but they could consider it. When the debugger situation in MSFS is resolved then that will probably be the end of new PMDG products on P3D.

      As with anything else relating to announcements like this, things may change. Nothing is definite.

        Nothing has been officially announced on a possible Max expansion. Nothing in MSFS and therefore even less in P3D.
        I've always known PMDG to tease and put suspense on possible new cells, it's fun, but nothing to take seriously.
        In the best case if the Max were to be done (in MSFS), we will have to wait a few years, unless it is slipped between the 777 and 747.
        But they will certainly have to have Boeing's approval to do so as well.​

          Wrong, it was announced in 2019.

        Why would it? How would it be profitable?

          Three times more than a 787-757..., since there would be much less work. lol

        I guess you haven't seen anything relating to the MAX, but it was confirmed on the original -700 release trailer the MAX was coming (for MSFS at least) and RSR said on the podcast last week that the MAX is going to be released during the 777 cycle, i.e the 777-200LR/F will release first, then the MAX, then the -200ER/300ER

        I may be wrong, but I seem to remember that the MAX was somewhat confirmed, not officially, for the NGXu on P3D.
        last I heard was it was near complete too, but due to the MAX issues IRL, PMDG decided to hold off on it, I think to not anger Boeing and jeopardise the licensing PMDG has with Boeing.

        Could all be hearsay though, as there were many threads about the MAX with conflicting info.
