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.

      Not the same. There are aircraft that have only an FMS unit. Others have a Multifunction control display unit.

      Thank you Robert, looking forward to the patch. Just had a flight to Portland, cloudy and rain and the majority of the Star had a tail wind and the 738 was unable to maintain speed, was continually about 5 or more knots about the AT speed. Had to continually use the speedbrakes on and off to control. Once on the GS the speed settled.

        One can always level off and get to 250 kts or below and lower the landing gear, then go to flaps 10-15 asap and then make up the G/P before entering the G/S. Some tell me to just fly the plane. There are still lots of options in RL (Real Life). The sim world has us believing there might only be a few ways to offset situations. The PMDG element allows us tons of options.

        This is not at all an unusual situation in real life. Did you enter a few altitude's worth of winds in the descent forecast page? That helps, but it's not an exact science... sometimes you need drag, sometimes you need power.

            It has to be difficult to keep up with all updates while working on new products, but PMDG is doing a fantastic job at keeping up with the living nature of a growing new platform, great job guys!

              Would be great, mainly for VR users EFB/tablet with possibility to open own PDF files (charts, OFP, QRH, etc.) and to make some necessary performance calculations. Fingers crossed for this release

                    The version we are handing to our testing team gives them the tablet itself, with only the Navigraph & simbrief functionality enabled as we want them to focus their efforts on those two pieces initially
                    Thanks for the update rsrandazzo! Quick question concerning the upcoming EFB and Navigraph integration, will this be integrating their new Charts 8 maps or is this based on the older Navigraph Charts? Does the updated Charts 8 throw a wrench into the works of rolling out the EFB?

                      My guess would be a slight delay in the PMDG update so they can perhaps deliver the EFB along with the updated Navigraph 8.0 integrated into the PMDG theatre....

                        Alternatively, as Robert's made it clear that the tablet will be continually updated too, and not just released and forgotten about, it could be the case that if all the groundwork for charts integration was with the older charts app, they may release it like that and then push out an update in the future with the newer charts integrated. Either are possibilities. Either way I'm looking forward to it.

                      Hi Robert,

                      Thanks for the update. Will the P3D 737 be receiving similar updates?

                        And yes, of course they have to bring out new Addons and make money. Because they are a company and the employees want to get paid monthley. Otherwise there will be no one to work on the existing Addons

                            any word regarding the VR interaction bugged implementation? any chance devs are working on that? still impossible to fly properly with VR controllers, yoke manipulation and throttle manipulation are not working, and interaction is still click-type like with a mouse, unbelievable that with DEFAULT (free) planes you can have proper interaction with the controllers....

                              I would like you to develop the Windshield Wippers effect on your own and apply it to the current 737 and 777 and 747 in the future.
                              In a previous reply, pmdg said were waiting for Windshield Wippers to be developed by ASOBO. But if it did, I'd probably have to wait a few years or more.
                              So I think it's faster to develop and apply it directly like the P3D version.
                              Not only me, but some users will have the same thoughts.
                              I want you to think deeply about this part.

                              I don't know why, but this cracked me up in a good way. I'm not sure anybody at PMDG is going to think deeply about windshield wipers. I suspect their top priorities are: fixing the latest flight model snafu; getting the long-promised EFB out; and bringing the 737-900 to market. But . . . at some point if the wipers are going to work, PMDG is probably going to have to do it themselves.

                                  With regards to the EFB is it possible to have the EFB as a toggle for equipment in the PMDG menu? Only reason I ask is I just want to keep my perf levels where they are now. At least until I upgrade.

                                  Still my favorite Airliner in the sim by a landslide thank you guys for all the hard work.

                                                Robert posted a while ago that they are having difficulties with the SU11's SDK to generate a build with the fix. And it seems that Asobo did not solved the issue before SU11 release.

                                                So aside from problems staying connected with the MS Servers I just completed my first flight since the SU11 update and I am very pleased to say that it was one of the best flights performance wise I've had. The A/T worked perfectly in harmony with the A/P and there was none of the previous "thrust-hunting" causing

                                                  My 737 is not grounded from Vatsim! If you don't trust the AT on the ILS then don't use the AT on the ILS. Simples. Nothing in the 737 prevents Vatsim use at all.

                                                    Where did you hear this?? I've been flying it in VATSIM without ANY issues for months!!! And there is absolutely NO mention of it I could find on VATSIM about it being grounded. I even personally know 2 members of the VATSIM Board of Governors, and they haven't heard of any such thing either!!

                                                    Suggesting that it is, I am afraid is false information.
