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.

    Thankyou Mr. Randazzo,
    My DC-6 is tired of the dance they made when fliying with LOC/GPS. Any chance for the best and funny aircraft I have?

        With so much focus on maturing the pitch/roll/thrust behaviors of the 737, SU10/SU11 and Tablet- the 900 has languished a bit- and I apologize for that. Right now we are deep at work on the flight models and performance behaviors for the 900 and 900ER- and right now if I squint a bit and tilt my head to the side it looks as though we will hand the 900 series to our beta testers within two weeks. One word of caution in that I thought the same thing three weeks ago- so please do understand that this is guesswork... Based upon our experience with the other 737s in testing, I don't expect the 900s will remain in testing long- so there is some positive news there.


        By specifically naming 900 and 900ER, is this confirmation that a BBJ3 is not in the works?​

          I vaguely recall seeing something mentioned a while back about PMDG not planning to offer the BBJ3 because only a handful were sold. This tracks with the products that were available for P3D, which were only the BBJ and BBJ2. They could still surprise us, but I'm not counting on the BBJ3 being included when the -900 releases.

            I remember that thread and interestingly RSR commented in that thread that no final decision had been made. Unless I've missed another thread I think that was the last we heard on it. I remain hopeful, but I agree that it seems like an unlikely prospect at this point.

          Your very quick update was a nice and long one… Much appreciated RSR and team. And thanks so much for all the hard work the PMDG team is putting into it.

          Wanted to also say that this new regular (aiming at every couple of weeks or so) for me has been quite a welcome change. Certainly more aligned to more modern release cycles in the software industry. How you guys can do it with the level of complexity in this aircraft is flabbergasting… especially given the current state of the SDK (and therefor, of course assumed on my part) the ability to include test automation. My hats off to you!

          Cheers,

            Thank you !

            Really looking forward for the Tablet. You guys definetly have the potential to make a great one !

            I know you can beat FBW A20NX & Fenix in this matter.

              Alexandre- OOOOH- lets not do that. There is *no* conflict between PMDG/Fenix and there doesn't need to be. I know you are probably being humorous- but I really do try to make it clear that I am very much against folks trying to create friction. We like the guys at Fenix- and there will be no beating anyone or anything. :-) -RSR

            Thank you for the update and for the hard work ! Would you have any news about the weather radar ? Do you plan to make it functional soon or is it something you will work on later ?

            Thank you again !

              Thanks Captain for the heads up. I just reinstalled P3D v4.5, ORBX, some airports, REX 5. All to fly the PMDG heavies again (and the B787 of Qualitywings). Missing them all too much.
              Please keep us updated on the “heavies” for MSFS. Try to show us a photo or two of them when possible. Very excited for them landing at our SSD’s…!

                Which cannot be the real reason because they also did the 737-700 freighter, which, fun fact, has not much more conversion than BBJ3 built. There are only 4 operators that I know of: 2x Alaska, 3x SpiceJet, 1x MayWay and one or some for a Chinese carrier.

                  Thx for the update RSR!

                  Quick question about the tablet. Strongly prefer the LIDO charts (NavDataPro) compared to the Jeppesen (Navigraph/Simbrief) charts. Will the Aerosoft NavDataPro LIDO charts be available on the PMDG tablet as well?

                  Keep up the good work
                  Grtz!​

                    I am eager to see those 777 and 747, we are in dire need of long haulers in MSFS and the 777 could very well be the first one to arrive.

                      On the 11th of this month you will have the first long hauler study level at MSFS, and it's free. Of course it's an Airbus, but I have more than enough for the moment and so I don't get impatient waiting for the PMG Boeings.

                        Depends what you class as a long hauler, doing a *very* rudimentary search on Simbrief, the A310 seems to have only slightly more range than the 737 BBJ, so isn't the BBJ technically the first study long hauler for MSFS

                          You are partly right, as far as range is concerned, but there are differences that are not subtle at all, such as the A310-300 is a wide-body and can accommodate 240 passengers with a range of 5,200 nmi and, in contrast, the BBJ is a business jet that takes advantage of carrying little passenger and baggage weight to carry more fuel. Nice try and I almost bought it. But certainly, at least imho, the A310 is closer to a long hauler than the BBJ.

                              They will not answer that. But yes it would be. I have been waiting for the fix for almost a month.

                              I am waiting like crazy for the fix myself. I have the notebook up and down problem.


                              I like PMDG, but the long wait was a bit unnecessary.
